I came across this tour on Airbnb while scrolling through the many different options and I’m so glad that I did! This is longer than the standard three hour tours which allows you to visit four different areas of the city. It was such a great introduction to Singapore!

The communication leading up to the tour was also impeccable. Upon booking you’re provided with a Google doc that outlines everything you need to know - meet up point, travel time from different parts of the city, the first three stops in case you’re running late, etc. I also received a text message from our guide the day before confirming the meeting location/time and suggesting that I bring an umbrella as rain was in expected.

Make sure you come with a big appetite as there are so many delicious dishes to try - kaya toast and kopi, rice dumplings, and murtabak were some of our favorites! Su Ling was our tour guide and has been working for Hello Singapore since they opened. She was friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. We were provided with with historical tidbits throughout the tour and Su Ling took group photos that were emailed to us later that day. I will definitely be recommending this tour to friends and family when they visit Singapore!

We had the most amazing time on this food tour. Our group consisted of 4 people, and our tour guide, Gee Soo, who was extremely knowledgeable about Singapore’s culture and food scene. Transportation was a mix of walking and bus which I found really enjoyable. It gave us a chance to explore different parts of the city that that would wouldn’t have on our own and travelling by public transportation felt like a more immersive experience. Gee Soo gave us individual recommendations based on our preferences and taste and was very attentive to our needs. He happily answered a million of our questions about Singapore and provided personal insight to the experience. He also had a camera with him and happily snapped pictures of us in all the different locations and sent the pictures via email after the tour. I think it’s such a cute and thoughtful idea, and we ended up with amazing pictures! The tour itself lasted 6 hours, but it wasn’t tiring or intense, it was very balanced. I had a fantastic time and would happily recommend it to anyone visiting Singapore.

Su Ling took a group of 6 of us on an incredible tour covering vibrant neighborhoods, sharing about the history and culture of Singapore, and of course introducing us to many different foods…So. Much. Food. It was truly an amazing experience, and I will never forget it! We booked this tour for our first morning in Singapore and that was a great strategy. Going into the Hawker Center in particular would have been really overwhelming - it was awesome to have someone who already knows what is best to get and where to get it.(And now we are more comfortable exploring on our own for the rest of the week!) Seeing so many neighborhoods was one of my favorite aspects and gave us ideas of where we wanted to go back for more time.

The food was amazing, and I tried many things I wouldn’t have otherwise. The carrot cake (with no carrots) was a favorite, and we loved the spice of the Malay foods. Oh, and watching the process for making tea. Ooh and the curry puff….and the rice dumpling…and on and on! One big piece of advice - do NOT eat before you go. You don’t need breakfast before, nor will you need dinner after 😂

Su Ling lived up to her reputation of the “Queen of Tours”. The pace, information, and overall friendliness made the whole day picture perfect. And we also met some really great people. We had such a great time and shared a lot of laughs. This tour is a must do!

Did a spectacular walking food tour of Singapore with Hello Singapore Tours. An incredible blend of the diverse, amazing, bountiful food that Singapore has to offer combined with an introduction to the history and culture of this unique city-state. Gene was the best guide - he loves everything the Singapore food scene has to offer, and enthusiastically shares that live with you. He's friendly, knowledgeable, funny, and keeps the tour moving and your stomach at the perfect level of fullness throughout the day. Whether you only have a short time in Singapore, or you are a local looking to discover something new, I highly recommend booking a food tour with Hello Singapore Tours today (and ask for Gene!)

We’re family travel vloggers from California visiting Singapore. For a more detailed review with videos visit my IG: @momduty and YT: @momduty.

Our guide Gee is the best tour guide! Not only did he take us to a variety of delicious food places but he was so knowledgeable about Singapore and it’s history. Very impressive. Food choices were on point especially for our private tour! Loved breakfast at Soon Soon Huat that served chicken curry puff, kaya toast & eggs. Enjoyed eating rice dumplings for lunch at Kim Choo. Both places had vegetarian options as well:) Liked that he added a Michelin Star Hawker food stall at the end which wasn’t on our itinerary. He even took us on a bus ride throughout our tour which was a great experience for my family. He’s well known by all the restaurant’s employees and owners and is loved by us. Especially my kids:) He’s great with kids! We also vlogged our food tour experience and we’re happy with how comfortable Gee was on camera. He’s a natural!!!! His energy and smile is infectious! I highly recommend him!

I had a wonderful time, and our guide Su Ling was excellent. Singapore has an incredibly upscale and modern food scene, yet there are many small local spots that are rich with culture and history - the latter is what to expect on this tour. I loved learning about the city and trying traditional foods that represent the blend of cultures that make Singapore so special. I also loved the combination of walking and taking the public bus - a great way to immerse yourself with the locals. Highly recommend!

Because we are currently not able to travel outside of Singapore, we decided to explore Singapore through someone else's perspective. We searched for some fun experiences on AirBNB and thought that this tour looked the best. Families should know that even if you have a child, through AirBNB, you have to pay full price for your child to join the tour. After paying, I realized that they would not give me the discount that is offered for children on their own site. I do think that something could be done about that situation and this is the only reason the rating is 'very good' and not 'excellent'.

Richard was extremely kind and knowledgeable. We had a great time talking with him and experiencing some familiar and unfamiliar foods. The tour gave us a great range of foods found in Singapore and also some choices along the way. Richard also took some great pictures of us and he sent us promptly after the tour. We enjoyed his company and he was always willing to answer our questions as we ate or walked around; however, he also gave us some space during the tour to eat and talk as a family.

I would be willing to check out some other tours with Richard as our guide, but I would definitely go through the company site so that I can get the child discount.

My guide Gee Soo was excellent! He was very patient with me and he was very knowledgeable with all my queries, making the tour very interesting and the histories all come to life. It really beats exploring the city by my own and I get to know more about the little known places even in tiny Singapore! It was an amazing experience, I've tasted so much on local food and I'll very recommending the tour to my friends as well. Thank you very much Gee Soo!

Gee Soo is a terrific guide! He is knowledgeable, attentive and his love for Singapore is evident and contagious. He effectively navigated us through a variety of neighborhoods representing different cultures. As we sampled the local food and drink, Gee Soo gave us a lively commentary. No worries, the food is plentiful. I can't think of a better way to learn about Singapore. it was a wonderful experience for me and one I will never forget. P.S. After the tour Gee Soo sent us a list of all the places we visited and the names of all the foods and beverages we sampled. A big bonus!
