What people are saying about Clarke Quay

We had a lovely knowledgeable guide that kept us informed of lots of interesting things The food was very tasty and the best we’d had in Singapore The rickshaw driver we had was great too and pointed out interesting things Would definitely recommend

We did this in the evening so the city was lit up. It was fantastic, don’t think the experience would be the same in the daytime. Highly recommend

At 7pm the light was just fading and so we saw the contrast in the photos I took.Very enjoyable, atmospheric trip.

Nice relaxing trip down the river on a nice bum boat. Good way to see some of the sights.

Slow and leisurely with good explanations of what we were seeing.
