Overview

The walks work on a simple principle: to bring people into places most other tours don't. Graveyards, smoke houses, wet markets, gun batteries, the city’s best-kept secret places. You name it, we have it. Since 2003, the Walks led by an eclectic bunch of researcher-guides have taken locals and travellers alike off the beaten track, and entertained with an endless store of anecdotes that reveal the true heart of the city. Pre-booking not necessary!

Joanne led our small group on this walking tour (very little walking required) and her commentary and the commentary in the museum from the locals and military who lived through the Japanese occupation of Singapore brought history to life. As a Brit, my historical knowledge...More

The Changi WW2 tour wasn't originally one of my 'must-do's' but ended up being one of the highlights of my trip to Singapore in February! Nancy, the guide, was absolutely excellent and I'd highly recommend the experience to anyone.
