We booked a private tour, car, driver and English speeking guide. Car and driver were excellent, but we could hardly understand the guide due to his mispronouciation and his lack of understanding. He was an official guide and on his bagde only Mandarin as a language was listed. You‘d better buy a book about Singapore, take a taxi, you learn more and save lots of money.
Enjoyable tour in comfortable vehicle with two knowledgeable guides (Chris and Allen). Tour began at Clarke Quay with "bum boat" ride on the Singapore River which is highly recommended. Many places covered during tour including "Merlion" statue which was observed by water and land, tour of Fullerton Hotel and other nearby grounds. Lunch credit was provided and dined on our own. As it was very hot and humid the day of the tour, we were taken to Gardens by the Bay, which is not included in the tour. The Gardens were amazing and a must see (its cool inside the domes). Although we had to pay for our admission, it was definitely worth it. Walking tours of the various merchant areas (China Town, India and Arab Street) were also included. Tour guides provided bottled water however it was not cold (a small cooler would solve the issue). Although we stopped by other areas such as Marina Bay Sands Hotel, admission costs were not included in the tour. I cannot say that the tour was a great value for the price paid, it was an enjoyable day which included all you need to see in Singapore. We were given a credit for dinner and dined on our own. All told, I would recommend this tour.
Our guide Chris was absolutely fantastic. We had already spent two days in Singapore so he personalized the tour to what we wanted. We went along the Singapore River, stopped for ice cream, toured the entire area, went to the Gardens By the Bay and a boat ride too. It was overall a wonderful day and just the four of us in our group we felt very special and catered to. We enjoyed lunch together at a wonderful restaurant while Chris provided recommendations for lunch of local specialities. Highly recommend this tour, ask for Chris!
