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!

The "Guns, graves and battles" tour of Fort Canning was amazing! The guide (Sharul) was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The tour sites were very well done and interesting. This is the only way to see the WWII command bunker which is definitely worthwhile.

While not a formal tour of the hotel we did walk through some of the public areas and hear some of the history of the hotel as part of the tour.
