Gee went over and above to overcome unforeseen difficulties and stayed to make sure we got on transportation home. The trip was fantastic in every way. Besides being informative and answering every question, he gave us insight into the life of every day Singaporeans which is so different from Americans. The tour interspersed air conditioning with outdoors, and walking and sitting so the time flew by without sweating. (A real plus in Singapore.) Gee is a caring and enthusiastic guide who really loves his country and his guests. I highly recommend this tour. I never take tours but this one had nothing but 5 stars so I figured I couldn’t go wrong, and my husband and I are so glad we did.

Great tour. I especially liked the tour of colonial district, river cruise and visit to public housing apartments. Gee was a great tour leader; so knowledgeable and very enthusiastic! I took three tours in Singapore, and this was one of my two favorites.

We had an amazing tour with Gee Soo. He was so friendly, enthusiastic, very positive, and attentive to our tour needs. We enjoyed all the personal stories he shared, they gave us a glimpse into the life and culture of Singapore, they are what made it a true cultural tour for us. The river cruise was so beautiful. We ran into some rain mid tour but that only enhances our experience. This tour consist of a lot of walking, wear comfortable shoes, dress comfortably, and bring water!

This tour was an excellent introduction to Singapore. Luckily for us, we were the only ones booked on the tour that day so it felt like a private tour. In addition to seeing many of the key sights, we learnt a lot about Singapore history, culture and way of life from our guide Gee Soo. Gee Soo also couldn't have been more attentive and helpful, adjusting the pace to suit us and ensuring we stayed hydrated! I can highly recommend this tour as an introduction to Singapore, especially if you're only staying a few days.

Exactly as I hoped, the tour took us to fabulous parts of Singapore that we otherwise would have missed, in particular the river quay area. Richard was the perfect guide - interesting and lively and informative. He gave us a strong sense of the culture and history of Singapore without feeling we were being lectured. And he adapted the tour along the way to suit our interests. Highly recommended!!!
