Great tour,

emmmanuel

nicely set out tour we really recommended it to any one

steven

tour guide was enthusiastic and homorous! = )

Alethea

The 2xTours we booked were a taster of Singapore and, for a short stopover, were ideal. The rest of our stay involved a lot of wal...king. Perhaps guides could strongly recommend visits to the buildings in the Old Historic Centre by the river,the Asian Civilisations Museum, and the Civil Defense Heritage Gallery. All were fascinating.
Thankyou to City Discovery. We will highly recommend you to friends and family.

Professional tourist guide, on schedule, and very informative.
It's worth what you paid for

Avelina

The only down side was Little India which we found to be of little interest to us, extremely small and traders not uncommon to any...where else.
The Orchid Garden was the highlight and could have spent a number of hours there!
The tour guides were first class. Thank you for the experience.

Must visit Singapore

Richard

This was the 1st of several tours we took in Singapore, This was our 1st trip to Singapore and the objective was to get a feel for... the city. The tour was very interesting and our tour guide provided a very informative commentary about Singapore. more

David

We had little time in Singapore so this was an excellent snapshot of what the city has to offer. We would have liked a bit longer... to look around Little India, etc., but otherwise well worth the money. We hope to return one day. Ann & John, Wirral UK more

Ann

Marianna

Uki Kustaman

The tour guide Linda, was pleasant and was told us what we need to know about the places we visited with a touch of humour.

John

The Orchid Garden and Chinese/Hindu temples were a must-see but we could have done without the trip to the gemstone/me<x>tal...s showroom and factory. more

Alison

nice trip!

Gerrit

Very nice tour and the guide was very informative. Nice clean coaches was a bonus.

Clifford

Everything was OK but this trip is little bit too short.

Joanna

we had 5 stops on our city tour: merlion park,an old buddhist temple, the gems/jade stone place, the national orchid garden, and l...ittle india. personally, the gems & Jade & stones place was really not a good tour spot. i could have done without it. i found it boring. little india was ok. the other 3 spots were great! more

Eleanor

The tour gave a very good overview

Kornelia

This was a great all-around tour of the city limits of Singapore. Of course, there is so much, you would want to stay longer at c...ertain spots, but the tour gives a great over-view of the city and knowledgeable tour guide. more

Ruth

The tour was very well organised. Just that the city tour was too fast. You only stay in one spot for 10 or 15 minutes.

Marcela

Tour guide was thorough and helpful. Great service!

Huong

A variety of interesting things to see and good to stop and browse. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip.

Cheryl

The guide was very informative.
The gemstone factory/ shop did not appeal to us, would have liked to have gone to another c...
ultural part of the city instead. more

Tass

The tour is well organized. The hotel pickup is as promised. It is a good tour for a short stay in Singapore.

Samson

That was the nice Opening for all what is interesting in Singapore.
We had a good Tourguide.
But when you want loo...
king for mor details, than is the Time 20 Min. per Station to short.
You must have so much more Time.
more

Michael

Times at various attractions were too short. The visit to the Gem factory was a waste of time and totally irrelevant to seeing the... best sites of any "City' This could have been omitted in favour of giving more relevant time to some of the main attractions e.g. The National Orchid Garden more

Anonymous

Great tour to do especially just after you arrive in Singapore. Our tour guide HJ was very pleasant and provided in depth informat...ion on all the sights of the city. Thank you. more

Anthony

Enjoyable

Les

on time pickup
good tour guide

JOHN

It was ok to see different aspects of Singapore .

Jose

It is a must thing to do on the first day. There would have been no time to spend time in the Indian market. To pass by would ha...ve been sufficient and spent on another location not included in the itinerary. more

Anelli

Please let people know that a wheelchair is available at the orchid garden. A new friend missed a lot because she didn't know....
20 mins was not long enough at the stops.Especially the gem factory, I went back later to make purchases.
more

Vicky

Really felt for our tour guide as one family arrived late for the coach & consistently returned late, creating lots of delays ...and worry. 5 stops were too much for the less than 3 hr tour, given the full bus and heavy traffic. Loved the Temple, Little India and the Orchid Garden and wished we had more time to wander. more

Susan

Although Singapore is a lovely city and this city tour visits nice places, the time is not enough, specially in the Botanic Garden...s, as the 30 minutes given led us in a a rush marathon.
It was nice to revisit Singapore 20 years after, and for shure, I will like to come back again
more

CityDiscovery

A couple of places were nice to visit, but had to do it very fast. Part of the tour was a visit to Chinatown and Little India whic...h are not that interesting. Better investing time in other places like Sentosa or Marina Bay. more

Ilse

During our City Tour of Singapore the roads are closed due to the F1 Race so not much place to see.

Jose Randy

Tour was spoilt by guides English. Very difficult yo understand him not sure if it was the speakers in the coach or his command of... english language. To us it really was a tour without desc<x>ription of what we where seeing. Would not recomend to others. more
