Our guide Jon met us as arranged and shared with us stories of Singapore from the original inhabitants to the Chinese migration and the Malay and Indian inhabitants. We tried the Chinese jerky and had wonderful satay at the hawkers market. After a quick train trip to Marina Bay Sands we enjoyed the light show and took some more pictures at the prime viewing spots! Jon also recommended some must do things and some must eat foods before directing us to the MTR to wend our way back to our hotel!

We enjoyed learning about Singapore’s history as we chase down ghosts that lurk within Singapore’s historic spots. The guides were the absolute best - combining the story behind each spot while being empowered by a rich set of personal experiences over the years of doing this tour.
