      Bike and bites tour - a highlight
      This was a 5 star experience. Seeing the nooks and crannies of Singapore’s ethnic quarters with a Singaporean local guide selecting the best of the local cuisine - this was a highlight of our time here. The bikes were a wonderful way to get up close and I felt safe at all times . I had my 14 son with me who had a blast. Yong was our guide - intelligent, authentic, funny and caring of his flock on 2 wheels as we negotiated footpaths, shopping malls and a Singaporean thunder storm . All part of the fun. Not just local cuisine but an insight into the life and history of this exciting city.

      This was a fabulous tour with Ting. The ride was amazing on safe pathways. I appreciated the formula one stop off and the time and advice given to watch the show at Marina Sands. Ting was excellent at keeping us safe and sharing stories

      Wonderful tour!
      Colin and Yung were amazing guides. We were worried that we would be too hot and humid but once you started cycling, the cool breeze was amazing. We saw some amazing sites including the Spectra light show, F1 race track and the Marina Bay Sands. The route was mainly flat and our 10 and 12 year olds coped fine. Highly recommend!

    Alfie is simply amazing!! He is informative, taking time to explain the story behind the sights that we see. Im truly blown away by the history behind Singapore thanks to the specially curated storytelling experience. It is reasonably safe too thanks to our guide. Overall the experience is awesome and truly potrays how life is like in the 1920s. 10/10 will come back again!

    We really enjoyed this adventure- a combination of sightseeing, exercise and drama! Creating the story of Tan Ah Huat makes the trip really engaging and provides fantastic context to the very interesting history of Singapore. The stop for coffee was at an excellent coffee shop - a chance to try genuine Chinese coffee. The cycling was fun and not at all challenging. Thanks Alfie for a great time - we loved it.

    2nd tour we have done with Alfie as our guide and once again it didn’t disappoint.
    The bikes have been upgraded and are comfortable and practical to get around Singapore.
    You see all the highlights and get a look into your everyday life of a Singaporean in the 1920s
    Great way to see the country and to get a bit of history.

    Ever wondered what it is like to be a tourist in your own backyard? Cliched as it may sound, we often miss out on the treasures around us when we only look beyond our shores. The recently launched Trails of Tan Ah Huat by Let’s Go Tour Singapore is an award winning guided cultural tour curated along the lines of a medicated oil salesman named Tan Ah Huat and his life in Singapore in the 1920s.

    This bicycle tour promises to be highly entertaining and educational, especially for the kids. Not only do you get to see various key landmarks in Singapore (not to mention highly instagrammable hotspots!), you also get to learn about our rich history and cultural heritage at the same time.

    The tour kicks off with a safety briefing and bicycles (which are provided) are adjusted for each user. Adults are given the classic trishaw rider hat and Good Morning towels to complete the Tan Ah Huat look.

    Our first stop is along Beach Road, where our guide explains the origin for the street’s name and how the sea originally came right up to this point before land reclamation brought about the Marina Bay area that has now become an icon of Singapore.

    At our next stop outside Sultan Mosque, our guide whips out ipads for the participants to watch pre-recorded videos of how Tan Ah Huat rode his bicycle around Kampong Glam selling medicated oil in the early years, and how one Mohammad Zufrie became his distributor after befriending him and offering Tan Ah Huat his favourite nasi lemak. This fictitious story was an interesting and engaging way for us to learn about the history of Singapore.

    The tour takes you through the hip graffiti-art adorned Haji Lane to the more solemn and imposing Cenotaph and the Civilian War Memorial Park commemorating those who died in World Wars I and II, past the soon to be re-opened grand old dame of Singapore, Raffles Hotel, and onto the historical Cavenagh Bridge, Singapore’s only suspension bridge astride the Singapore river.

    One of the most fascinating stops was at Pek Sin Choon, one of the oldest tea merchants in Singapore established in 1925. This family-run business continues to blend and roast its own tea here in Singapore. We were given a tour of the premises and got to see a tea roaster made in Singapore that’s over 30 years old and still in use! Did you know that more than 80% of the tea used for Bak Kut Teh in Singapore, made from a blend of Wuyi and Anxi tea leaves, comes from Pek Sin Choon?

    Legend has it that in the early days, Bak Kut Teh was made using inferior tea and the owners of Pek Sin Choon set about changing that, resulting in the loyal following they have now.

    A rest stop at Nanyang Old Coffee in Chinatown gives your legs a breather while letting you enjoy some traditional snacks paired with old school tea or coffee. Here, kids get to experience your childhood (assuming you’re old enough!) with artefacts from yesteryear such as the milo tin used as a cash register, Tikam Tikam, and the old Chinese tear-away calendars! Robin Loh, founder of Let’s Go Tour Singapore, gave the children a taste of a bygone era when he explained to them why coffee was made with socks in the past and why people drank coffee from a saucer instead of a cup. When you’re here, don’t forget to check out the cool caffeine-inspired quotes etched all around on the walls!

    On the return route, I was surprised to see that remnants of the former ‘Thieves Market’, a flea market at the now defunct Sungei Road where enterprising hawkers sold goods that were sometimes thought to be stolen, still remained in some forgotten alleys. As we rode onto the Formula One racing track, the kids got a thrill out of speeding down the wide track without any danger from cars or pedestrians.

    As we make our way back to Let’s Go Tour Singapore’s shop at Crawford Lane, we discover from Robin that Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodles is not the only famous place in the immediate vicinity. A stone’s throw away sits Heap Seng Leong, a coffeeshop steeped in history where kaya toast and coffee is cooked using charcoal for that rich smoky taste. This is also one of the rare few remaining places where you can get SG-style bulletproof coffee (i.e. coffee with a thick slab of butter) made by an 82-year old uncle complete with the classic white singlet and pyjama pants! History buffs will be thrilled to discover the origin behind the bulletproof coffee in Singapore. Apparently, in the olden days, opium smokers would get very dry throats. To get some relief, they would slide a thick slab of butter down their throats before drinking their coffee. And that is how the bulletproof coffee developed in Singapore!

    So, if you ever want to give your kids an insight into a fast disappearing facet of Singapore, take in the sights of many historical landmarks and get a good workout all at the same time, let Tan Ah Huat bring you on an unforgettable ride!

    After going several times over the last 10 years to Singapore, we wanted to do a bike tour again - when we have done our first tour many years ago, it wasn't a top experience.
    We booked very last minute and had much luck - we basically had a private tour as the only guests.
    The arrival was really great, we got our bikes prepped (proper mountain bikes - very well maintained!) and got a good introduction about the route and the topic.
    Once started, we kept a good pace with our guide and made several stops and had the story telling and other chats about Singapore. Really a great story about the 1920s development of Singapore, loads of new info, despite we going their so often.

    The tour doesnt going into bad traffic and the route is really scenic. It comes well recommended if you are into historic facts about SIN.

    I liked how this tour started off with a story which makes it exciting for us to embark on for a better understanding of Singapore's history, culture, traditions and heritage sites. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and engaging. Definitely a more interesting way to explore the city to understand the old and new Singapore. Overall we had a fantastic experience and would 10/10 recommend this for those who love a more exciting way to explore the city.
