We woke up to a beautiful day in Singapore ready to start our tour. If
you read any of my travel posts you know that I often hire a private
guide to see places from the eyes of a local. For this trip, we booked
one in each city. In Singapore, we used With Locals and found Monica.
We spent two days exploring the city using secret tunnels, the subway,
the bus and walking about 8 miles each day. If you want to truly enjoy
this city I highly recommend booking a day or two with Monica. We
visited Chinatown, ate Chicken and Rice at Michelin Star Hawker Chan,
shopped in Little India for sundresses, had one of Monica's favorite
drinks...Chendol at Mubarak Ali Kopitiam (this one is a little more
expensive than others but worth it for the amazingly light flavor). We
had a chance to try my favorite food Bone Marrow called Toolong at
Tash Tish Tosh and made a mess but it sure was delish. It was hot out
and we passed a little shop on Arab Street called #Selfie Coffee and
we couldn't resist. Day two was another fun adventure through the
Colonial District, where we saw the famous Raffles Bar where the
Singapore Sling was created. We went through the secret tunnel with
the glass library bridge, to the Merlion sculpture. We had the
yummiest treat after lunch, the famous Tan's Tutu Coconut Cake at Food
Republic, Vivo City. We caught the express monorail at Vivo City out
to Sentosa Island where you can find Universal Studios, lovely beaches
and delicious gelato. We ended our day at Gardens by the Bay visiting
the Super Trees, Flower Dome and the Cloud Forest! You absolutely must
go here in both the day time and at night. We actually came back here
on our final night of our Southeast Asia Tour to see them at night.

It was a great experience to get into Singapure with Kenny. We were at hidden places which we never would found without Kenny. He gives you very detailed historic informations about the city and the country that you can not find in any book or online. Also the recommendations where to eat very local food were great and of course very delicious. To see how the ‘normal’ inhabitants live and eat in Singapore was very astonishing and interesting. We highly recommend Kenny for any visitor who wants to see real Singapore from the inside and not only form the ‘standard’ touristic way of view.

Very knowledgeable of the local culture and history, Kenny helped us
discover Singapore in a unique and captivating way. We learned a lot
about the city's culture and history thanks to his' great passion for
the city. We would highly recommend Kenny! Great experience, Thanks!

We did this half-day tour with Monica and it was fantastic! She managed to entertain my two young teenagers while making the tour really interesting for all of us. In addition to seeing a lot of the sites, she took us on the subway and the bus and through parts of Chinatown we never would have found on our own. It was a great way to orient ourselves to the city on our first day. Monica was delightful, informative and a pleasure to spend a half day with!

It was so interesting, to visit places af this great town, you normally don't visit as a tourist. We had not problems, even though it was the beginning of Corona pandemie.
There were no restrictions and we learned much about politics and discipline in Singapore. Ronnie was a great guide and we had much fun and know now delicious
food stalls in the city. Thank you very much for this experience, Ronnie!

We were met by Kenny at an MTR station. It was a very personalised tour. We elected to deep dive Chinatown and so we visited temple. Food hawkers and shops and backstreets. He was very knowledgeable and personable and we learnt a lot during the tour and felt we had a real insight to the history and culture of the China community in Singapore. Along the way learning a lot about modern Singaporean life. A really good way to discover bits of Singapore you would not have seen or learnt about as a regular tourist RECOMMEND IT

Peter was a perfect host for my family. His choice of places to see
was fantastic and his factual knowledge was superb so his stories kept
us interested throughout the tour - so much so that the 4 hour tour
seemed to pass by very quickly. It's always nice to see a new city but
Peter just made it so worthwhile. Not only was it a walking tour but
we were also on the MRT and Buses which gives you a great feeling
about how good the transport system is in Singapore. There was also a
good mix of places to visit - the Merlion, Fullerton Hotel,
traditional Hawker Market, Chinatown, Temples and so much more.
Nothing was rushed and Peter just moved with the pace we set so once
again - Thank You Peter

We had already seen a little bit of Singapore, so our guide Monica tailored our tour to us. She was extremely knowledgeable with a great sense of humor. We took the subway and a bus to get an idea of public transportation while hitting Little India, the Sultan Mosque in the Arab-Malay district and taking advantage of every known AC area on route. We ended by having dinner at the Hawker Centre next to Gardens by the Bay. Fabulous tour.

Eliza recently gave a tour to two of my children, ages 7 and 12, and myself. She was so organized, informative and patient; I was truly impressed. We had a great time learning about the history of Singapore and some of the current societal structures as well as trying some delicious food. I would be happy to take another tour with Eliza again and again--and I have no doubt I would learn lots of new information each and every time!
