If you want the typical mainstream meals like chicken rice, biryani, laksa etc, go to any hawker place and order it yourself. If you want to try culturally significant dishes that only the locals know as well as a historical breakdown of Singapore’s three main districts in the same tour, give this one a try. You’ll leave the tour more culturally rich and with a full stomach to boot. Had a great time!

Individual and away from tourism The two of us booked a private tour with Mr. Leonard Loo in Singapore and were very satisfied. Since we were less interested in seeing the typical tourist spots, we were guided through the city off the beaten track. The guide was very flexible, tailored the tour to our questions and interests and tried to make it as varied and interactive as possible.

On Board commentary was excellent and gave a good explanation of different areas and sights. Places that were included in trip were great and interesting.

It was a great overview of what you can find in Singapore, perfect for getting of a taste of the city.

nice places. very nice friendly clear tour guide. Everything well arranged???
