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.

I have been living in Singapore for 18 months, I learnt more on this tour than I have in the last 18 months. I have seen the various sights previously but i was unaware of the meaning and history behind them. Wei is an excellent story teller. I will forever remember the stories he shared about the places we visited and the history of Singapore. Wei is extremely knowledgeable and very passionate about all things Singapore. Despite the high humidity levels, i found this tour quite easy as he ensured we were in and out of air-conditioned building. My only regret is not finding the Guru Walk tour before, now that i have, i have already booked my next 3 tours. If you come to Singapore, book this tour on your first day here, you will not regret.

This was one of the best tours I have ever done. Wei has designed an excellent tour full of impactful moments. He was also kind enough to send a personalised recommendation list by email afterwards. Strong recommendation.
