A great way to meet a local!

We met Monica at Serangoon MRT and hopped on a local bus to look for hidden treasures in that area. We had a lovely 3 hours walking around markets, learning about local life, ordering tea the local way and looking in shops I asked to see. A really nice way to leave the tourists areas and learn what its like to live in Singapore as a local. I highly recommend this trip.

Our guide Monica was full of knowledge and a beautiful person. We learnt a lot about life in Singapore and got to join a game of bowls with a group of seniors in a park. People we met were so happy and friendly. This is certainly worth doing if you want to get away from all the tourists for a couple of hours, and experience what life is like in Singapore. Tea at a local coffee shop and visits to 2 temples plus lots more.

Monica was outstanding & so informative taking us off the beaten path

We not only saw how the locals live but learned about how the cultures exist together. I was impressed with the information and details that Monica shared with us regarding the lifestyle in Singapore while integrating the historical along with the tour while being very accommodating to our individual needs.
