My wife & I booked Arthur for a four hour “street food” tour while we were in Singapore early January, 2023. Arthur arrived at our Conrad hotel, on time & reviewed our very fun, interesting & delicious itinerary. Arthur was very knowledgeable about the local island history, customs & diverse culture of folks inhabiting the island. We headed to three historical sections where we sampled the delicious foods & drinks that he purchased for us to sample he would share local information about the current government’s policies & how they impacted the locals. Arthur gave us quiet time to enjoy the foods after explaining the food’s origins. Arthur was kind enough to allow us a little shopping time to buy couple of forgotten items for our cruise. We definitely recommend Arthur highly for his tour services & very warm & patient attitude. He took several photos for us when our phones died & sent them to us later! Yes, hire Arthur if you can.

Absolutely fantastic! What a great way to see the sights of Singapore. My tour guide was brilliant and took lots of photos and videos on my phone. I was lucky enough to be the only person on the day I went (7 January 2023).

I am glad that I go on the bus tour, as it gave me the perfect idea of Singapore and which places are worth to visit again. Also super nice, helpful and friendly staff! Highly recommended to book!

Fabulous place to rest in transit. Friendly staff, ample food and drink choices all unlimited.

I would recommend going early evening as you can then watch the city light up.
