What makes this tour special

In this four hour tour, your expert local guide will endeavour to immerse you in Singapore’s rich and vibrant history; showcasing some of the fantastic sites around this truly multicultural city. 

Flourishing Singapore

Since independence in 1965, Singapore has risen to become a hugely wealthy city-state, shaking off its reputation as a stopover, to flourish as a premier tourist destination in Southeast Asia. 

Starting at your hotel, or at a prearranged meeting point, your personal tour of Singapore will begin with a drive around the civic district; regarded as the birthplace of modern Singapore and the unofficial centre of the city.

Not to be missed, you will have the pleasure of seeing the Padang, Supreme Court City Hall, Cricket Club, and beautiful Parliament House. Your next stop will be at the Marina Bay where you will be able to enjoy stunning views over the city. Here you will have the opportunity for a photo with the enigmatic symbol of the city- the Merlion cub, a mythical creature, half lion and half fish. 

Multicultural City

You will then proceed to Chinatown to visit the Thian Hock Keng Temple; one of the oldest Chinese temples in the city. Absolutely not to be missed, is the Singapore Botanical Gardens, which contains the National Orchid Garden, boasting a comprehensive collection of tropical and cooler climate orchids. Your tour of the great Singapore will end In Little India where you will have the pleasure of experiencing an authentic taste of sub-continental culture and cuisine.
