I found this tour to be a weird experience, but I would still recommend - I mean it's free, so why not? From the beginning, they organize the group by assigning everyone a number, which was odd. Our tour guide was very nice and funny, but also was pushy to the point of being rude if you wanted to talk... More

If you have several hours to spare between flights then booking this tour is a must. I have done both the heritage tour and the cultural tour and found both very interesting and informative and giving an insight into this beautiful city.

Awesome opportunity to visit a beautiful country in few hours. If your layover in Changi is longer that 5 hours, you can join a quick tour to the downtown of Singapore. You don't have to pay for any ticket . You just go to the end of Terminal 3 and find the Free Singapore Tour kiosk. Then you have to... More

What a fantastic way to give people a taste of Singapore when passengers are on a long layover T Changi airport. Simply go to the well signposted desks and register.
