We were a group of four from Bulgaria and visited Singapore in February. We like walking tours with local guides, because we find that this is the best way to immerse ourselves in different places and cultures.
Our local guide in Singapore was H.J.. He picked us up from the hotel, asked us about our expectations and interests and customised the two-day tour.
H.J. showed some of the most iconic structures, places and buildings in Singapore - the "Gotham building" with its majestic courtyard, the MICA building, the National Gallery and the Victoria Theatre, Haji Lane, Clarke and Boat Quays, the Marina Bay Sands Observation deck, many "green" buildings, rooftops, bridges, parks, gardens, bars etc. All of these were even more impressive on the inside.
We did a walk through the 500-metre-long sky garden on the top of the Pinnacle building with its stunning views over the city.
H.J. took us to the URA Centre, where we had the opportunity to learn about and explore Singapore's exciting planning, urban and architectural journey.
H.J. also arranged for us to visit the Supreme Court building and we learned a lot from him about the Singapore judicial system.
Throughout the tour H.J. took many wonderful photos of our group and then sent them to us.
It was a truly high-class private service with a very knowledgeable and reliable guide.
Thank you so much, H.J., for showing us not only the main sites, but also so many other special and distinctive places, which make Singapore such an amazing and vibrant metropolis!
I definitely recommend H.J. to everyone who would like to see and experience Singapore in a different way. I especially recommend The City and Public Housing Tour to everyone who is interested in architecture and urban development.
