        Excellent experience with an even better guide, PAM!
        The tour was great and informative. Pam was an excellent guide who made the experience even better! There was a fair bit walking which was fine and fairly easy with plenty of breaks.

        Hello fantastic food tour
        Fantastic food tour and this is why… The guide - First of all a big shout out and thank you to our guide Su! She was fantastic. Showed us the best places and gave us some great tips. You will receive an email afterwards. The tour - About the tour, we had a small group that we appreciated. Must of the tour is done by foot except for one part. We loved the fact that we went to different neighborhoods with different cuisine. Food and history were explained. The food - We seriously liked everything. Yummm Of course you love something more than something else. Portions were big so not bad to share. When we booked the tour we thought two things: 1) Waaaaay too early. 2) Waaaaay too long. Well we couldn’t be more wrong. The time was fine and good to have one of our favorite dishes, those are only available in the morning. We had such amazing time it flew by. It was supposed to end at 3PM but we stayed until 4PM. Whatever you do, come with an empty stomach. Because after eating all this food and drinks you will explode at the end.

        I you only do one tour of Singapore make it this one!
        I found this tour on Airbnb experiences and the booking and communication with the host was smooth and prompt. Our group was assigned Pamela as our guide and I can’t thank her enough! Pam was super warm, accommodating and hilariously funny, but also extremely knowledgeable and engaging, which made a huge difference! It was awesome to hear her take on so many relevant topics related to Singapore’s fascinating recent history and development. I also thought the tour was extreme well curated, I came away from it having experienced something interesting and also learning so much about Singapore. Highly recommend!

        Excellent way to quickly learn about Singapore.
        We visited Sigapore for the first time and decided that we should experience the local food. We chose the Small Group Food Tour with Hawker Center: Eat Like A Local with our guide Su Ling. Our guide was well prepared. She had plates, bowls, spoons and wipes in case anyone needed it. There were six people in the group. We visited nine different restaurents and this included travelling by bus a couple of the stops and walking to the others. Su Ling included foods from all the various etnics groups in Singapore. All the meals were very good and she gave us the history behind each meal and Singapore itself. We enjoyed this tour very much and learned a lot about Singapore. We highly recommend this tour and expecially Su Ling as your guide.

        Excellent tour
        We had a great time with Richard, our tour guide. He went above and beyond to make sure that we know about Singaporean culture and history. He offered to take pictures for us throughout the tour and gave advices about what to do and where to go in Singapore. He walked us to our train at the end of the tour to make sure that we get home safely. Everything was well paced and we did not feel rushed. We loved the tea tasting and boat ride experience.

        Awesome Private Tour - Only way to experience Singapore
        I had an amazing experience with our tour guide, Richard! He was incredibly knowledgeable about Singapore/its history, and shared fascinating insights throughout the tour. Richard’s friendly and approachable demeanor made the trip even more enjoyable. Richard took so many fantastic pictures for us, capturing all the best moments. Plus, he was always on time, ensuring that we made the most of our day. The car used for the tour was also excellent with nice seats/air conditioning. I highly recommend doing the additions to this tour such as the Gardens by the Bay during the day time, and the Singapore Sling.

        Amazing Food Experience
        My husband and I attended this food tour and we really enjoyed the experience. The group size of 8 was just right and i would not want there to be a bigger group. We ate so many good foods and the guide was wonderful with her explanations of each food and location we visited. i would recommend others to try this experience.

        Perfect day at Singapore
        This tour was perfect for our one day at Singapore. Our guide was Gee Soo and he was excellent. He was very knowledgeable and very pleasant to be with as he took photos of us and shared them at the end of the tour. He did a review of our day so that we knew everything we had visited with him and the photos he took of our group. Our Singapore experience was wonderful because of the amazing guide we had. Thank you, GeeSoo, for making our Singaporre experience a perfect one. Will definitely go back and look for you to be our guide again!

        Afternoon Very Well Spent
        Had a great afternoon / evening with our guide Gee Soo. We were fortunate to experience several different locations and their accompanying stories and history. It was especially valuable to hear about elements of living in Singapore and what makes it the country it is from a local citizen's point of view. Gee Soo was incredibly accommodating, personable and friendly and really made the tour for me. Also, loved the chicken rice dinner!

        GEE SOO is the Best Tour Guide ever
        Wow where do I start ? We were a group of 11 and did the Food Tour the first day . Sampled some wonderful food at all different places including a hawkers center. Second day we went to Marina Barrage - the dam Singapore has built to block the water and turn rivers into a reservoir. We went to the rooftop and took pictures with the unblocked city view of Singapore as the backdrop. We learned about the water story of Singapore and saw from a distance, Batam Island of Indonesia. Then to Chinatown where we visited a Buddha Tooth Relic Temple which was amazing. We did some walking around, had some pandan chiffon cake and looked at the historical shophouses. Then to Merlion Park, had lunch at Wing Seong Fatty's restaurant a Cantonese restaurant that is now managed by the 3rd generation . Went to The Jewel Changi at the airport. Such a cool place. We finished the day with a river cruise. Third day we went to the Kebun Baru bird singing park. Very unique place to see. Then on to the National Gallery. We went back to this on our own to spend more time and look at all the art. You need to stay at least a couple of hours here. We went to the Raffles Hotel & Long bar for a Singapore Sling, where it all started. This is a beautiful hotel and the drink was great. Lunch this day was at Tong Ah Eating House, a local restaurant . So very good. After lunch there was only three of us and we continued on to Sentosa Island. We checked out Siloso Fort and learned more about the second World War (Japanese Occupation Period) in Singapore. This is another place that we went back to spend more time at and rode the cable cars . Every morning Gee Soo our guide met us with the happiest and upbeat attitude. He was amazing and the tours were such a joy with him. He felt like an old friend we were visiting who wanted to show us around their city. Bernie our bus driver was also such a sweet , nice person. If your lucky enough to have these two as your guide and driver you will come away with new friends and an appreciation for the history and culture of Singapore. I miss them and Singapore already ! Highly recommend. Be sure to wear sunscreen and bring a hat on the days you will be out side walking

      Tour company quickly responded to inquiries when we booked the tour and then asked us questions about what we wanted to do and see to better customize our tour. Our guide, Gee Soo, beautifully adapted and adjusted our timing of the day so we could also fit in a stop at the National Art Gallery of Singapore, where he showed us some of his favorite pieces. In addition to the last minute addition of the National Gallery, we took the subway to Chinatown where we learned about the Chinese immigrants’ life in the 1900s and life for a modern Singaporean. We then rode bikes around Marina Bay and stopped in several places. Gee Soo took many great pictures for us, and then promptly sent them to us once the tour was over. Highly recommended.

      Our Singapore private tour with the BEST tour guide (Pamela Loh) and our spectacular driver Bernard. My husband and I have high expectations when traveling. We like to experience as many things as possible in a given day but do not want to be rushed or herded like sheep. We also want a guide that is knowledgeable, friendly and gives you an immersive experience as a local.

      I highly recommend Hello Singapore Tours and you will not be disappointed—request Pamela as she was excellent, knowledgeable, respectful, entertaining and just extremely fun to spend the entire day with around the city.

      Recap of the tour

      First, we checked out the National Orchids Garden where we saw many wild and hybrid orchids.

      Then, we stopped at Marina Bay overlooking the iconic Marina Bay Sands and learned of the story of Merlion. We saw Raffles, the founder of modern Singapore and visited the old parliament house before making it along our Singapore River into Fullerton Hotel, the former General Post Office.

      Next, Bernard drove us to the oldest Chinese temple in Singapore, Thian Hock Keng. After which, we made our way to the heart of Chinatown. Along the way, you tried the pandan chiffon cake. Then, we also had lunch at Chinatown hawker centre where you tried a local snack, popiah (fresh spring roll), carrot cake, chicken rice where you washed it down with the tiger beer.

      Lastly, we visited Gardens by the Bay, the 2 conservatory domes, Flower Dome and Cloud Forest where you saw more cherry blossoms where you thought you were done with in Tokyo and the second tallest indoor waterfall in the world.

      Pamela was an amazing guide and we had a fantastic time seeing the local sites in Singapore. As a Neurosurgeon, I am not easily impressed with the work ethic of other people often come quite disappointed from things like this. Hello Singapore tour guided by Pamela was simply outstanding in my book. We covered a lot of ground in our six hour tour and Pamela was incredibly informative and a real pleasure to work with. From her prompt meeting at the airport and the luxurious van accommodations and outstanding driver during the tour we felt comfortable with her right from the start. Well organized well sold out itinerary and color commentary gave us a good understanding of the history of Singapore.

      Amazing tour with Gee Soo! We saw so many different part of the city and got an insight into every-day life. We ate at Hawker center and walked through Chinatown, Little India, Kampong Glam and the Civic District. We also went to an observation terrace at a roof top and admire the city from above.
      I found out so much about the life and culture of Singapore!
      It was an exciting trip and I would recommend it to anyone visiting (remember about comfortable shoes, it's a lot of walking! :))

      Great way to see the city! Richard is a wealth of information and a fantastic guide. He was open to accommodating my interest and needs, and did a great job explaining things multiple time to help bring it all together at the end.

      I saw more in 4 hours with Richard than I would have on my own, highly recommend spending the money to have a guide.

      Our guide Daryll was knowledgeable and entertaining and the itinerary for the "Our Grandfathers Story" was well mapped. We discovered old school eating houses (i.e. restaurants) in Chinatown, learned about the cultural history of Singapore, and went for a Chinese tea tasting. I recommend the tour.

      We traveled as a group of 8 friends (4 families), and we've been very lucky to be shown a great city by a professional agency and a very knowledgeable and pleasant guide
      - Richard. For some of us it was the first time in Singapore, and we benefited immensely from a very informed, well organized and efficient tour guide. After six hours of exploring the city by bus, walks and talks, we felt that we fell in love with the city, its people and their culture. Very rewarding experience, and we highly recommend it to other travelers to this part of the world!

      My sister and I did the custom half day tour. Gene was our guide and did a fantastic job curating the experience around our interests.

      In 4 hours, we got to try Singaporean food, walk through Chinatown, Little India, Arab Street, and Marina Bay. Hanging out with Gene felt like family. We shared some laughs and even had delicious tea together!

      I would highly recommend Hello Singapore for anyone who wants an intimate and private experience that is tailored to your liking.

      Thanks to our wonderful tour guide Gee Soo, we were able to see so many different things in Singapore while there during a stop on our Seabourn cruise. From the time he picked us up on our arrival at the Cruise terminal, until he dropped us back at the terminal, Gee Soo was so courteous, friendly, and wanted to make sure we saw everything we wanted on our day in Singapore. He was very knowledgeable, and knew the best way to get around this beautiful city. He took us to all of the places we wanted to go, recommended some others that were not on our list, and shared his in-depth knowledge about Singapore; which made this an amazing tour! We would highly recommend this tour and Gee Soo if you are in Singapore!

      Su Ling was a terrific tour guide, for our first visit to Singapore. She showed us all around the city, from the oldest district (started by Sir Stamford Raffles), to the latest, most advanced skyscrapers and shopping districts. Along the way, we toured the financial district, the waterfront, Chinatown, Little India, stopped at the Maxwell Center for an authentic Singapore lunch, and generally enjoyed ourselves all day. Su Ling has a wealth of knowledge and is incredibly friendly and creative. We truly enjoyed our time with her, and we know you will too.
