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

The "Overview" tour. Join us for this 3 hour Free Tour along the Singapore River to the Marina Bay area. We will bring you on a journey through time. You’ll get an overview of Singapore’s 200-year history, during which it was transformed from a fishing village to a vital trading port under the British East India Company; to a Japanese-occupied city; to the modern Singapore that you see today. We hope to show you the evolution of Singapore... from the darkest hours to our brightest moments. We will show you some gorgeous old buildings that have been given a new lease of life. Through them, we hope to be able to give you a glimpse of the Singapore-to-come as well.

A great tour of the more modern areas of Singapore, and Wei did a great job of connecting the modern present-day to the history of the area and Singapore in general. I highly recommend any tour with Wei! Even if you do multiple tours with Wei, each one is different enough in different parts of the city that it’s very much worth multiple tours with him!
