Full description
Discover Singapore by getting to know its famous Civic District. Explore the city by driving round the Civic District, passing by the Padang, Singapore Cricket Club, historic Parliament House and the National Gallery Singapore. The Gallery consists of two national Monuments - the former Supreme Court Building and City Hall. Make a photo stop here and view these magnificent buildings up close (weather permitting). Next, stop at the Merlion Park and enjoy the impressive views of Marina Bay. Do not miss out this picture-taking opportunity with The Merlion, a mythological creature that is part lion, part fish! Next, it's on to Thian Hock Keng Temple: one of Singapore's oldest Buddhist-Taoist temples, before driving past Chinatown.  Proceed to Singapore UNESCO World Heritage Site - the Singapore Botanic Gardens and walk through the National Orchid Garden which boasts a sprawling display of 60,000 orchid plants. Your final stop of the tour will be Little India. Here, guests will be entranced by the area's vibrant atmosphere and the scents of joss sticks, jasmine and spices. Watch a skillful demonstration of Teh Tarik - Pulled Tea at a "Sarabat Stall" and sample the tea after with your guide explaining the origins of this all-time local favourite beverage.

This was an incredibly fun excursion the day after landing in Singapore. Was a excellent way to see a little of the sights and Florence our guide was a treat. The Merlion was every bit amazing as I had expected and the view of the Marina Bay Sands was something else as it stood in the distance. The Thian hock keng temple was beautiful! The Orchid Garden a real treat, 45 mins wasn’t enough time to explore a fraction but gave enough of a taste to want to go back and explore the botanical gardens as well. Little India was a great way to end the tour and watching the tea pouring was enjoyable I would throughly recommend everyone do this tour, it was run by tour east Asia and they collected us from our hotel and dropped us back off as well. 5/5 ⭐️

Natalie was great!

Natalie has led with a lot of wit and eloquence through this tour. She had a lot of knowledge about Singapore and history and had an answer to all questions. Furthermore, she helped immediately with ailments and small mishaps and stood by word and deed to the side !! The tour itself is worth a quick overview of this fantastic city to get!

Good overview of Singapore!

Great overview of Singapore with a panoramic drive of the city with us able to go back to the sites that we had an interest in. Our guide was kinda monotone & hurried us along. But we loved Singapore & wished we had more time there as there is so much to see & do. It is so clean, has beautiful greenery, great shopping, easy to get around on the MRT, safe, & friendly, helpful people. The Botanical Gardens, Gardens by the Bay, & MRT Subway were simply fabulous!
