I always enjoy visiting Singapore and so this was just a nice way to see the downtown area, the Marina Bay Sands Hotel and other icons from a different viewing perspective.

Nice view from the river. You can see the Merlion Park on the boat. Strongly recommend 7pm session with night view

Great cruise. Very informative and relaxing. Did not know most of the history so educational too.

Great experience, good historical background, very organized and on-time.

Friendly staff. Easy on and off system. The view is amazing.
