Cycle, snack and see the best of Singapore all in a day! This Total Singapore Tour combines two of our most popular adventures (Bike About Singapore and Chinatown Food Adventure) into one epic full-day tour.
You’ll start your Total Singapore Tour on two wheels: zipping through the cultural enclave of Kampong Glam, a historic district where Malays and Arabs once settled. We’ll pedal through the nooks and crannies, where rows of boutique shops and Middle Eastern cafés beckon locals. From there, we’ll explore Bussorah Street, often referred to as Little Istanbul. Here, you’ll find many Turkish diners and shops selling souvenirs.
We’ll continue along Beach Road, which was once the coastline of the city but has since been pushed inland to accommodate land being reclaimed for buildings and businesses. Marvel over the architecture, where many of the buildings were built based on Chinese feng shui. We’ll eventually reach the famous Raffles Hotel, which is the jewel in the crown of our hotels in Singapore.
We’ll finish up the cycling portion of our Total Singapore Tour with a visit to the colonial district, as well as a glimpse of the beautiful waterfront at Marina Bay, including the spectacular Marina Bay Sands.
You’ll then have a free hour to relax and stretch your legs before we dig into the foodie fest (after all, you need to refuel from all the cycling!).
We’ll regroup at the Chinatown complex, the largest hawker centre in Singapore. Your guide will help you pick out some of the most authentic, tasty Singaporean treats. Savour the famous chicken rice along with delicious poh piah (fresh spring roll). Then try some mouth-watering local Chinese delights such as chwee kueh (water rice cake) with freshly crushed, ice cold sugar cane juice. While you chow down, you’ll learn about the city’s rich culture, and why hawker centres are so close to the Singaporeans’ hearts.
After our first dose of deliciousness, we’ll take a stroll through the wet market to explore local food sources, then hit the streets of Chinatown. Learn about the history of the early migrants in this area. We take a respite from the outdoor heat with a visit to Urban Redevelopment Authority gallery to understand how city planners built Singapore from a humble fishing village to a great cosmopolitan city!
We’ll finish up our Total Singapore Tour with a refreshing calamansi drink ( lime juice ) and a tasty roti prata.

This is a 2-part tour that can be separated, but for me, the whole day was the best adventure.
Renee (Sp?) is one of the best local guides I have ever experienced in my travels in Asia with Viator tours. That is him in the red cap and shirt in the picture. As a local Singapore resident, he really knows the history and current conditions. On the leisurely bike tour portion, 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, he guided us through China Town, the old Historical District, the River Walk, and Marina Bay. The bikes were very comfortable and easy to maneuver. He stopped often to provide colorful detail about the area, social housing, societal norms. He took us to the largest Hawkers market and bought lunch for the group, providing many different and delicious samples of hawker food and explaining what we were experiencing. It was a full lunch.
The afternoon leisurely walking tour was from 2:30 to 5:30 pm. Renee took us through a different part of China Town and to a different Hawker Market to sample more delicious treats.We stopped at the City Center Museum where Renee provided a very intriguing history of Singapore and the marvelous scale model of the city center display.We visited a magnificent building with Gotham City design and an amazing gin bar in the lobby.
If you have a day to explore the center city, you are active in biking and walking, love to sample the local culture, history and food, I sincerely doubt you could do any better on a tour that with Renee and his Total Singapore Tour - Full Day Biking, Walking and Food Tour. Worth every penny.
What a terrific tour!
The bike ride was the most enjoyable, relaxing way to see the heart of Singapore with our tour guide enriching the experience with much information, and supplementing with the unique tastes of Singapore. The walking and food tour part was equally as enjoyable with much unique food tasted and landmarks visited.
I highly recommend this tour, it was absolutely great.
Hop aboard two wheels to take in the iconic sites of Singapore on this ultimate intro to the city! Pedal through the city’s oldest district, biggest cultural hub, and along the famed Marina Bay as you zip in and out of Singapore’s nooks and crannies. Then weave through Chinatown to leave no stone, rice cake, or poh piah unturned. You’ll refuel from all that pedaling with tasty bites as you learn about one of the most unique neighbourhoods in Singapore.
