    Awesome food experience
    Absolutely awesome trip. You will be exposed to the multicultural food experience of Singapore whilst getting a lesson in Singapore's history and doing some sightseeing. The food was amazing, and Mr Cheng was extremely knowledgeable and had great stories to tell about Singapore.

    Best way to spend the day!
    Arthur helped us learn about the history of Singapore in a very entertaining way while arranging for us to try some fantastic food. He even demonstrated variations to enjoying the food. We loved his sense of humor and he was very attentive to our particular requests. Great way to spend our day enjoying the local cuisines.

    Marcus was great, giving us all the knowledge we could have wanted - and I ask a lot of questions. Made it fascinating. Was good at adapting to my dietary needs as well.

    A special insight to multiple cultures
    Our tour guide, Ang, was terrific. He combined the right amount of history with each location we visited for tastings. It was a very hot day and he made sure we had plenty of water and stops to rest. We are grateful to Ang for providing us a unique, fun filled experience.

    Great food and tour!
    Marcus gave us a well thought out culinary tour of some of Singapore's highlights. He also taught us much about the history and culture, in addition to some of the practicalities of living there. An experienced guide, Marcus has much to offer first-time and returning visitors, alike. Well done!

    Getting to know the real Singapore
    We had such a great experience with Monica. We got out of the tourist areas and saw the every day Singapore. Monica was attentive and tuned in quickly to our interests. She provided some great suggestions for things to do during the rest of our stay. She was generous with her time. Thanks very much Monica.

    I’d give Marcus 6 stars if I could!
    Marcus was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of Singapore and its specific neighborhoods. He was warm, friendly, accommodating of a temporary disability from knee surgery, and picked some of the best food that we had on our entire week in country I would give him six out of five stars if possible! Can’t recommend this tour enough!

    Wonderful Tour in Singapore With Monica
    Monica is one of the best and kindest tour guides that we have met! She took us on a special journey of how the local Singaporeans live. Due to the hot weather, Monica was able to navigate our tour by alternating walking with a few comfortable air conditioned bus rides. We would not be able to explore these interesting but less traveled districts without Monica’s expert guidance. In addition, she was so kind to share her helpful food suggestions, special landmarks, and a “secret” air conditioned underground passage to the Merlion statue. If you are seeking a knowledgeable guide in Singapore, Monica has my highest recommendation.

HJ went above and beyond, providing us with an excellent tour and detailed commentary that was both informative and entertaining. He is very knowledgeable and a good judge of what will be of interest. We would strongly recommend him to others with an interest in Singapore’s history, culture, and cuisine.

Our life time resident guide was able to provide a deep insight into the history and culture of this unique city that he evidently loves passionately. His pride in the achievements of Singapore and its melting pot population spilled over into his his recommendations of great food and architecture. A fascinating half day.

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!

Rodney was an amazing guide and super flexible when we want to explore different things. For example, he went above and beyond because I wanted to make a dinner reservation at the art gallery and he gave us a little tour there that wasn’t included. Instead of 8 hours we ended up getting 9 hours total and he didn’t even realize how much time has passed.
He indeed took us to little gems, such as having croissants in a local place, hidden buildings, street food courts, and many others.
He knows the city extremely well and also the history of the country and why it got so quickly from being a third world country to a developed one.
Highly recommended

Richard is a very exzeptionell guide. He knows a lot of history of Singapore and knows a lot of hidden places. He is even a wildlife guide and was able to show us rare birds in the city. He has a good sense of humour and it was great having him as tourguide. He is also able to cope with the heavy rain showers and make us to forget it,alltough our clothes were soaked wet.
I strongly recommend him as tourguide, if you want to have a great time.

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

Kenny gave us an excellent tour of Singapore. He is knowledgeable and not only gives you info about what you see on tour but is also prepared and takes advantage of the short commuting time to give general info on Singapore. His experience on the tour he gave is obvious and the result was understandably excellent. Overall, Kenny was, among the 5 in total WithLocals guides we used at our SE Asia trip, the most professional and well prepared. Local snack, provided in the tour was nice but just a small bite, but Kenny was kind enough to pay for another treat, as we did not carry local money and we had a second snack at a nice place, though one of the few I guess in Singapore did not accept credit cards.

We met Ang on time at 10 am at the City Hall MRT station exit.
He immediately sat us down and explained the history of Singapore from how the island got its name to the current day.
That was the last sitting down except for lunch which we had at the Chinatown Complex and food centre. He explained the purpose of the food centre and bought a number of foods to try out until we were more than full
Ang was very well organized and kept us going until 3 pm including visiting religious centers and a public housing building with a garden on its roof at the 50th floor. We also rode in taxis, on the bus and on the undergound.

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 met our ‘with locals’ tour guide at a local cafe just near the Marina Bay Sands hotel where we were staying. Upon meeting Eliza she abounded with enthusiasm about our next four hours together. Her demeanor was warm and inviting as if she was meeting old friends in for a holiday. She mapped out a route that included local historical sites, food hoker markets and museums. Her knowledge about her home country was astute as she answered all of our questions with the skill and precision of a rock climber scaling the face of a mountain. As we went all over the city to each site she was met with smiles and hospitality by each establishment, the sign of a great host well liked by her peers. She ushered us through Singapore’s underground transportation with ease, never skipping a beat and what an amazing system they have! At the end of our tour she was kind and gracious, having taken the time to walk us back to our hotel. She offered a hug upon our goodbyes and we gladly obliged for after just four hours with Eliza, she had enchanted us and we left feeling we would certainly see her again. We highly recommend booking her. You won’t be disappointed. PS bring a small hand towel, the humidity is a killer!
