Our guide, Joanne, was knowledgeable and friendly. The tour of the Battlebox I found to be very emotional and thought provoking. The history behind Fort Canning very informative.
Our tour guide Wina was excellent. We learnt the 700 year history of Singapore. The Battlebox was great unfortunately we couldn't take photos. Well worth the visit.
Wasn't sure what to expect from this tour other than learning about the recent history of Singapore.The tour started at the Battlebox visitors centre where we were given a bottle of cold water (you will need it). We set off and walked to explore Fort Canning, thankfully we had a fine day as a lot of the tour was out doors.We were surprised about how old Singapore was and the history around it. There are lot's of great photo opportunities.We spend a little over 1.5 hours in and around Fort Canning. The last hour or so was exploring the Battlebox. This was not only interesting from the size of the complex but what happened within it.Our tour guide (Whi Whi) was very informative and answered everyone's questions.We would recommend this tour to anyone that love history but recent and ancient
Extremely interesting. Nancy our guide was very good. This is can behighly recommeded.
the singapore battlebox tour was very interesting,showed the hardships endured by army officers making decision to surrender to japanese,excellent tour with history included
Great tour guide.Very engaging talk with first class resources.Not being able to take non-flash pictures was a great disappointment.Singapore is much too hot to live in.But exciting to visit
Very interesting tour with Battlebox tour guide Shan. It was a comprehensive history of Singapore and also the surrender of Singapore in 1945 World War Two. I went along with my husband who just loves WW2 history and I found it really interesting and well worth the money we paid.
Really interesting tour. Gave a lot of info. Extremely hot outside! Maybe about 20 mins too long, but excellent to give insight to Ww11
This was a wonderful tour, if you are really into the WWII history then it is well worth it. We started off with a tour off the garden area. If you are not able to walk long distances or climb stairs, then this is not the tour for you. There are quite a few steps to climb up and down, the Battlebox was interesting, and we learnt a lot. We were also lucky enough to have a tasting of come local rice and a drink.
Extremely interesting tour. Very knowledgeable tour guide.
