Rachel was such a knowledgeable and kind guide, I really enjoyed walking around the city and learning more about its history and culture. She answered all of my questions and even gave me additional information in order to make the most out of the remainder of my trip. I would strongly recommend this tour.

This tour is definitely exceeded my expectations. With such a short time planning for our 3 days in Singapore, Rachel has been so wonderful showing us her lovely hometown. We appreciate her honesty, communication, professionalism, and knowledge. She is very punctual, reliable, and make you feel like at home. We are grateful for her work and time spent with us. FYI- she has a lovely IG account for her Frenchie 🥹

Rachel is the best tour guide we have ever seen! She is excellent, lovely and definitely a superb storyteller and very insightful. We like and appreciate the way and attitude Rachel organized the tour with details, patience and her true passion before, during and after the tour which made our Little India time a very interesting, informative and memorable. Tasting local foods and walking through wet market were also an amazing part of the arrangements to get to know more about the culture and tradition. Highly recommend Rachel and you will always get surprise from her.

We had an awesome day with Rachael! She is very knowledgeable, energetic with wonderful communication skills. The day prior to our tour she emailed me tentative schedule, confirmed our meeting place and provided suggestions for attire along with a friendly reminder for sunscreen and water. We explored parts of Chinatown, Kampong Glam, and the National Art Gallery. Rachael provided an experience that immersed us and educated us about Singapore. She is more than a tour guide, she has a true passion for her clients as she seamlessly weaves together stories of culture and history. I loved the photo binder where she could show us a visual history. Additionally, she patiently took pictures and provided great recommendations and suggestions. Culture Curious Singapore Tours with Rachel is an absolute must do on you visit to Singapore! Thanks again Rachael!

Rachel, thank you for taking my mom and my aunts around Singapore. They have learned so much from you about the places and stories of Singapore. Thank you for taking over my job as a daughter to tour them around when I could not. Your passion, your patience, your integrity and just overall pleasantness is very much appreciated. My mom and my aunts will forever remember this trip because of you. Thank you sincerely.

My cousin had booked this tour as part of my 2-week vacation in Singapore. It was my first time in the country and we were looking for things to do and places to visit. As an architect, I really enjoyed visiting all of the old temples and structures, as well as the more modern buildings in the area. Rachel was a fantastic tour guide, very knowledgeable, friendly, and just overall a great companion! What's great was it was just my cousin and me in the tour so it really felt like a private tour or just three friends walking around Singapore. She even volunteered to take photos of us! I learned so much about Singapore, not only relating to Architecture, but also about the country's culture and current events. It was such a memorable tour, and I would gladly book a tour again with Rachel!

I took this architecture tour (Art, Architecture and History Tour) with a relative last month, and it was money well spent! Our tour guide, Rachel, took us on a walking tour to see both traditional as well as modern buildings. It was nice to see the different structures, and what I liked even more was hearing about the cultural significance of details, such as how the bamboo roof design we saw in the traditional area reflected the owner's wish for the family to be strong and resilient, like bamboo. Details like that are things you wouldn't really know as a tourist from a different culture, so I was happy to learn different things during the tour. In addition to taking us around, Rachel had also prepared art prints that she showed us during relevant parts of the tour, translated Chinese writing I saw in the traditional area, and talked about Singapore's policies regarding architecture and greenery. We saw a lot and learned a lot on this tour, so it was really worth it! Would definitely recommend this tour! :) And thank you very much to Rachel for this interesting and informative tour of Singapore's architecture! :)

I had a ball of a time with you ladies and am so glad that you took the warm weather in your stride. Such a joy to have your cousin who's an architect herself on the tour. (: Indeed, every architectural detail is a reflection of the people and their cultural legacy. It's my privilege to share with both of you our architectural highlights in and around the city. I hope to reconnect with both in your next SG adventure... take care!

I hardly write a review, but when i do, than it's because the experience/service delivered was outstanding.

Rachel is not just a tour guide who shows you around to places. She is a very kind and well educated person which attributes tremendously to the experience. I contacted her with my wishes and the itinerary couldn't have matched better what i expected.

She also has a very calm personality which helps to fully immerse in the scenery where she shows you around and the information she provides with it. Never i got the feeling it's just run-of-the-mill and rushing to the next place.

At different points throughout the tour i enjoyed to discuss with her several topics like education system in Singapore or in general social topics but also environmental ones. And for each topic she also provided knowledgeable information and integrated it seamlessly into the tour (like public subsidized housing).

Rachel is really a gem and i can recommend her tour to anyone in a heartbeat.

Wow, THANK YOU Christian for the glowing review! I'm beyond grateful for your heartfelt words and I'm so glad you've booked yourself another private tour with us in July 2022! I've learned just as much through your sharing of your country's social transformation. Cannot wait to see you soon!

Tour guide Rachel has shown much zest in helping us to understand more about historical Singapore. Her energetic delivery of the past behind each place that we went — whether it’s Thian Hock Keng Temple, the Fullerton Building, or National Gallery Singapore — filled us up with little known facts that you may not find in a generalised presentation of the city-state. And she was very confident to answer our questions in respect to these things. Highly recommended if you want a refreshed perspective of familiar and lesser-known places.
