What you can expect

Experience all the delights of this amazing city-state, in just one day! The vibrant center, the serene green parks, the magnificent mountains and beautiful coastline. Guided by your favorite host, you can experience it all. Along they way your host can tell you how it all began and share the stories behind the famous sights.

On this private tour you can also get close to the locals and their way of life. Perhaps you’ll meet Anthony, a third generation spice maker. In his spice-filled shop, off the beaten track, Anthony can tell you how he selects his spices, dries them with care, and blends them lovingly into secret recipes. Listen to his enthusiasm and enjoy his shop’s aromas.

Get amazed by some hidden gems that only locals know. Your host can show you an old opera house that’s now a hotel, with its reception desk on stage and its luxury bedroom suites in the balconies. Visit the old parliament house where history was made and the declaration of independence was signed.

See how the three main cultures of Singapore live side by side. On one street: a Buddhist temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Hindu shrine, all in one view. Visit Chinatown and its brightly colored restaurants. See Little India and the shops that sell flower garlands for hindu gods. Maybe you’ll be invited behind the scenes to see how the garlands are made.

Feeling peckish? Then it’s off to Singapore’s world famous Hawker market. Over 260 stalls cooking and selling delicious snacks. Your host can guide you to the best stalls and advise which dishes will suit your preferences.

To round off your tour, spend a few moments admiring the spectacular Henderson Waves bridge. Its fantastical construction is in the shape of huge wave, curving and twisting along its entire 274-metre length. At the end of the bridge is Mount Faber with its green parks and natural life. It’s time to enjoy the breathtaking 360-degree view of Singapore: an island, a city, a capital and country.

Your awesome local hosts can’t wait to introduce you to their sensational city and share local tips & tricks with you. All of them can personalize the route 100% for you. So check out the videos, pick your favorite host, and get ready for the tour of a lifetime!
