We are the top rated Tour Operator in Singapore. We specialize in Free Walking Tours, but do specially curated themed tours and private tours as well. Each of our Free Walking Tours will bring you through an area that we love. Walking the streets gives you the best sense of a city. We want to show you the sights, and also places off the tourist path. Each of the tours seeks to tell you a different part of the Singapore story. Your local guides will also suggest their own secret places (especially hawker stores) to go in Singapore. Come for one tour, or come for all of them!

Tour description

Our Signature Free Walking Tour! Join us for the Original 3.5 Hour Walk through the heart of Singapore. You’ll be introduced to the City in a Garden and sneak a peek at how the locals live and eat. We will bring you into Chinatown - a tourist attraction, but at the same time, also a local living area. Over the period of the tour, we hope that you will see how our unique blend of culture/religion/perspective has shaped Singapore to the city that it is today. The walking tour aims to go deeper than just introducing the sites: we’ll stray off the beaten path and delve into the city’s amazing history. While we are at it, we will also show you some of our favourite eating spots! Of course, we’ll also try to provide you with an insider’s take on what you can do during your stay in Singapore.

We took the Chinatown tour with Eunice. She is a local and by profession a pharmacist but her desire to learn more about her city has led to her now guiding locals and visitors. She has a bubbly personality, full of information but also challenged us to think about why things may be the way they are or were in the past. Eunice made it an interactive tour and we could have spent an entire day with her. For visitors on the Guru Walking tours, I would suggest you allow extra time as the guides as very generous with their time and the tours tend to go a little longer. The other reason for allowing extra time is to retrace your steps to spend more time exploring areas of interest. I would recommend these tours unreservedly and while they are “free” tours, the guides are not paid and rely on tips. They make it very clear the tour is free and tipping is your choice.

We highly recommend this tour. The route was an easy walk and was also easily accessed via public transport. The group was not too big, so everyone could hear the guide speaking easily.
