Nice tour with knowledgeable tourguide! A nice overview of the role of Eurasians (Portugese, British and Dutch roots) in Singapores' history. The "war room" is very interesting and showing the hard life under the Japanese occupation. Recommended not only for Eurasians, but for all Singaporeans...More

My dad experienced WW2 as a Eurasian and this brought back a number of memories both good and bad. If you are at all connected to Eurasians who went through this - it is well worth the visit.
