Full description

Discover Singapore by getting to know its famous Civic District. Begin your journey at Kampong Glam, an area where modernity meets tradition. This district has a history that dates back to Singapore’s colonial era as the allocated area to the Malay, Arab, and Bugis communities. Explore the city by driving around the Civic District, passing by the Padang, Singapore Cricket Club, historic Parliament House, and the National Gallery Singapore. The Gallery consists of the former Supreme Court Building and the City Hall. Next, stop at Merlion Park and enjoy the impressive views of Marina Bay. Do not miss out this picture-taking opportunity with The Merlion, a mythological creature that is part lion and part fish.

Visit Thian Hock Keng Temple, one of Singapore’s oldest Buddhist-Taoist temples, before driving past Chinatown.

Proceed to Singapore’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Singapore Botanic Gardens, and walk through the National Orchid Garden which boasts a sprawling display of 60,000 orchid plants.

We were initially stressed because we were not picked up in our hotel lobby as requested with the service provider. We're not familiar with the place so we needed to get a taxi just so to catch up with the tour. Thanks to our tour guide who is so considerate and very friendly, he was able to compensate the stress we had. We had a great time touring the city.

This was an incredibly fun excursion the day after landing in Singapore. Was a excellent way to see a little of the sights and Florence our guide was a treat. The Merlion was every bit amazing as I had expected and the view of the Marina Bay Sands was something else as it stood in the distance. The Thian hock keng temple was beautiful! The Orchid Garden a real treat, 45 mins wasn’t enough time to explore a fraction but gave enough of a taste to want to go back and explore the botanical gardens as well. Little India was a great way to end the tour and watching the tea pouring was enjoyable I would throughly recommend everyone do this tour, it was run by tour east Asia and they collected us from our hotel and dropped us back off as well. 5/5 ⭐️

Natalie was great!

Natalie has led with a lot of wit and eloquence through this tour. She had a lot of knowledge about Singapore and history and had an answer to all questions. Furthermore, she helped immediately with ailments and small mishaps and stood by word and deed to the side !! The tour itself is worth a quick overview of this fantastic city to get!
