    Disappointing! It was cancelled but I was not notified!
    Apparently the tour was cancelled the night before but I didn’t get the cancellation. So I rushed to the venue but there was no one there and after 30mins of messaging group and stressing for potentially missing my tour, doubting I had gone to correct location, I managed to get hold of the booked guide who advised the tour had been cancelled the night before due to an emergency. I had really been looking forward to tour and hadn’t made alternative plans so now I’m leaving the country with a sense of disappointment, regret and no fond memories. If I had been told of this cancellation in advance, I would have made alternative plans.

    Great food (and brief history) tour!
    Our tour with Marcus was fantastic! We visited three different neighborhoods and sampled Muslim, Indian, and Chinese cuisine. In addition to the food tasting, we got a bit of a history tour about each neighborhood and an intro to how to use the subway. My husband and I went on this tour with our young adult daughters and they loved it as well. I highly recommend!

    Fantastic food and city tour!
    Booked the street food tastings with Chingmeng and it was excellent! Chingmeng has a wealth of knowledge about Singapore beyond just the food. But he also took us to some super yummy food vendors! The chicken masala and naan bread in little india was amazing! Would absolutely recommend Chingmeng for your tour of Singapore!

    Amazing experience
    Great experience to learn more about singapore and it's amazing history. So insightful and great at explaining each dish we tried. His tour covered so much more than food and each dish had a wonderful backstop only a great storyteller could give highly recommended.

    Best tour
    We truly enjoyed our tour with Grayson, not only because of the delicious tastings, but also the insight he provided into Singapore culture and history. This is probably the best quality tour we have taken in our travels around the world.

    With Locals - 10 tastings tour in Singapore
    I would recommend the With Locals app for personalised tours around the world. HJ was a fabulous guide that we got to choose in Singapore, showing us the authentic food places whilst sharing bits of history as we went! Download With Locals and use HJ as your guide in Singapore. You won’t be disappointed!

    Great tour, lots of tasty food
    We just finished our Singapore food tour with Marcus, and it was great. Marcus provided a lot of history, provided a huge amount of interesting and delicious food, and was very accommodating to my vegetarian diet. We would highly recommend this tour and Marcus.

    Informative & efficient way to experience the food & areas of Singapore
    Great all round & efficient experience of the food of Singapore with history thrown in. William was very knowledgeable & took great care to ensure we were ok in the heat & access to amenities on the tour. I’d say it is probably a bit long for kids / teens. Maybe 2 hours would be best. And 2 hrs if your time is further into the heat of the day. We went at 10am. Travel between locations on the MRT at own expense. You don’t need a travel pass. Tap & go on a credit or debit is fine. Would definitely recommend this tour!

    Monica is a fantastic guide! Friendly, easy going, full of facts, interesting information and stories. She will teach you how to get around on the MRT system. She has great tips for the rest of your stay. As a solo female traveler I found her super helpful! I moved around more comfortable on my own afterwards. I can’t recommend her enough. It is obvious she loves what she does and she’s great at it! Thank you again Monica, an unforgettable morning!

    Delicious Tour with a perfect Tour Guide
    On 07.05.24 we had the private food tour with Marcus. He is a nice guy with a very good knowledge about the history of Singapore and the different cultures in the town. We started at Arab Street, went to little India and finished the tour in Chinatown. We did not only taste great food from different kitchens, we also learned a lot about the cultures and people. It was a great experience und we can recommend the food tour! We enjoyed it very much. Thank you, Marcus!🤗👍

A private tour through most of Chinatown is the way to go! Our tour guide HJ was wonderful. He planned a great half day for us that included many dishes at two hawker centers, walking tour of Chinatown and a tour of the Singapore City Gallery (a great museum of the history of how the city of Singapore planned and its future). HJ had wonderful energy, was thoughtful and very good communicator. He even sent us emails of suggestions on things to see and do.

To begin with, we thank William for the excellent introduction to the local food. He took us to three major hawkers in and around China Town and at each place gave us typical local food with nice explanation. Especially chicken noodle of Hawker CHEN was most impressive and yummy. We finished the tour with local coffee and English tea. Perfect! We really enjoyed the tour. If one is interested in local food of Singapore, don’t miss this shirt tour.

Monica was so wonderful. She was on time, so friendly, communicated beautifully and knows the city incredibly well. She had an agenda planned but offered to change or amend anything that I may want to taste or see. You knew the history behind every food I tried and every site we visited. A special talent of Monica's is that she realizes how hot and humid walking around is, so she made sure to stay in the shade 99% of the time so I would be as comfortable as possible. While I loved the food, history and sites, the real draw was meeting Monica. I made a wonderful new friend. My time with Monica was the highlight of my trip! Great tour all around! Monica is a STAR!

HJ was a fantastic tour guide. He personalised our tour to include
particular foods we wanted to try and then took us to taste so many
different delicious foods. There was much more food than we could eat!
HJ is a very knowledgeable local who loves his city and it is a treat
to have him show you some fantastic highlights.

Had a wonderful tour with Monica yesterday . She took us to where the real food was with a history tour along the way. From the Hawker hut in the heart of Chinatown to Maxwell city market and it seemed everywhere with absolutely magnificent food prepared straight from original recipes. Do yourself a favour and book this one.

Intelligent, informed with excellent communication skills, our "Taste of Singapore, Hawker Center Tour" with William was one of the best tours we've ever had. Not only did we learn about the local food...(which was fantastic) but as we moved from one part of the city to the next, we also learned so much about the history, people and culture of this amazing city state. William enjoys meeting and talking with newcomers and we all appreciated his enthusiasm. A lovely, kind, knowlegable gentleman, our family of 4 highly recommends William for you next tour in Singapore.

I booked a private tour for myself and choose 17:00 as the time. I received my confirmation and ticket and was then contact my by the guide assigned to me. He then suggested an earlier time (9:00) as he thought it would be better and I responded that time was not good for me. He then suggested a later time (19:00) and I again stated that time was not good for me. He then suggested that I request a refund. It was less than the 24 hour cancellation time limit so I am now left trying to figure out my refund through Trip Advisor and no tou to take today!! Such a horrible experience.

Grayson provided both a historical and culinary tour of Singapore. He has a calm demeanor and let us take our time to enjoy and the sights and tastes of Singapore. We enjoyed the murals in Chinatown and the Victorian architecture at Lau Pa Sat. he made sure to explain the historical perspective from a local Singaporean of each site we visited while we were walking around. We finished on time despite Grayson having to wait awhile to get food from the popular stalls with long queues.

This was one of the best experiences we have had. We tasted wonderful, unique food that was freshly made, and absolutely delicious. Our guide was fantastic...he regaled us with stories, the connections of culture and food and the fascinating history of this delightful city. We so enjoyed our experience of the color, the vibrancy and the authentic flavors of Singapore. Thank you, Hundred, for a memorable experience. We highly recommend this tour.

My experience with Ang was exceptional! His knowledge of Singapore's history and its food scene was impressive. He enthusiastically answered all my questions, showing his passion for what he does. The tour was fantastic, and I left each hawker center feeling satisfied. The first one we visited was Singapore's largest hawker center, followed by my favorite where I tried the famous chicken rice Anthony Bourdain raved about. The last stop introduced me to a delightful dessert called chendol, made with shaved ice, coconut milk, and toppings. Overall, Ang's tour was amazing, and I highly recommend Ang! ☺️
