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

One of our favourite tours - the "Balik Kampong" or Going Home tour. We believe that this is THE tour that will bring you a little bit off the beaten track. Let us show you a part of Singapore that most tourists don't get to see (including a very local hawker centre). We will walk through graffiti laced streets and explore the palace grounds of the past kings and princes of Singapore. Expect other surprises as we walk down the former Arab quarters and the oldest shopping streets of Singapore.

Our guide was awesome. Stopped for drinks, shade and airconditioning inside. Knew all about the history of the area. Gave lots of tips. So worth it! Even slightly changed the end of the tour to take us to the top of the National Library for the view!
