    BMTC tour
    I attended the BMTC tour with Vic and it was a meaningful and enjoyable experience. He is the best tour guide I have experienced. I learned the importance of NS and the necessity of it as well as the mindset of sticking through and being able to accomplish anything as long as we stick together as a country.

    BMTC Tour
    I attended the BMTC tour conducted by organiser Vick and found the tour very engaging. Vick explained to us the SAF’s history, different cases / events SAF went through such as the Macdonald House Bombing and the Cable Car rescue mission. I studied History back in school but coming here and attending the tour gave me a more in-depth understanding to what my country have went through after and before their independence. I am proud to serve and defend my country.

    Do our part for Mother Earth
    Particularly love the sustainability tour where we felt strongly to walk the talk and begin to play our part to sustain Mother Earth. Our guide Aqirah is knowledgeable and shared with our group very comprehensively and clear in her explanations. Thank you for having us 😊

    Fun and educational
    It was a good experience for me to go through with new friends. I think for me it was an educational as well and I learnt about Singapore nation forming history from the beginning until now the modern nation. I grateful for the hard work put up by the organiser who made the Singapore Experiential Visit meaningful for new aspired citizens

My three kids enjoyed making the paper tanks activity, good family bonding activity. It's part of the BMT exhibit which is a good learning experience for them to learn about basic military training at a young age!

The tour was very informative. One thing I learnt was about the cable car incident in January 1983, and how our forces coordinated to save those stuck in the cable car

The tour guide (Jennifer) was very straightforward and to the point and I learnt a lot such as the process of inspection that civilians had to go through during the japanese occupation and some examples of what criteria they had to fulfil to pass the inspection e.g. not wearing spectacles, having rough palms. Additionally, I learnt more about the purpose of national service.
