We really enjoyed this tour. Whilst it was advertised as a small group of up to 8, in fact we were the only two people who’d booked that day. Very interesting mix of history, food and information about life in Singapore today (the latter mainly in answer to our questions/interest). Most time spent in Chinatown, but also visited Little India and Kampong Glam. A big thank you to our brilliant guide, Jeff.

Heya M8939VBtims, It is so great to hear that you guys had an enjoyable experience exploring the insides out of Singapore with us! We intentionally keep the tours small so that every guest can be attended to and kept engaged. And we are glad that you managed to learn more about Singapore's history, culture and also local life! Hope you enjoyed tasting our local foods too =) And yes, Jeff is indeed brilliant. Knowledgeable and super friendly, Jeff always gives his 100% to all his guests. He would be most happy to know that his efforts had been appreciated! Hope you had an amazing vacation and we hope to see you again on our tours! ~Love from the Monster team~

Had an amazing time in Singapore with these guys!
I've taken a free walking tour of Chinatown and Little India and learned so much about the city. To be fair I am not usually too much of a group tour person but this one was so captivating and interesting! I would have never been able to discover all these hidden gems by myself and the guide was so much fun but also also knowledgeable in every aspect. So even if you usually (like me) prefer to discover the city on your own trust me, give it a try and you won't regret it :)

What an awesome tour and perfect way to start our vacation. Angel was fabulous and provide us a little Singapore history while trying different traditional foods at multiple hawker centers! I highly recommend this tour & try to do it on your first day, it was a great way to see the city & understand the hawker centers. Loved everything we tried but the Popiah were all of our favorites!

Bas is knowledgeable, approachable and always attentive to the needs of his tour participants. As a Singaporean, I was brought to places I’ve never been and learnt new information that I never knew. Highly recommend for tourists who want to gain an insight on the location and about our social housing, government and some history about our land.

We had a wonderful tour with the delightful Dani! Almost instantly she became a friend and her enthusiasm, warmth and love of Singapore, as well as the amazing food and information about Singapore in general as well as the places that we visited made this one of the best tours that we have had. My husband and I loved this tour and would highly recommend Dani in particular as she was a knowledgeable guide and a truly lovely person. Thanks Dani!

We did the Chinatown tour as part of a recent Staycation. Even though we've been to Chinatown many times in the past it was great to get a different view of it and find out more about the history and background.

Our guide, Bas, was very knowledgeable and showed us some great 'hidden secrets' that we will enjoy taking our friends and relatives to when they have the opportunity to visit again.

A very worthwhile tour and even though you may live here it's great to put your 'tourist' hat on for a while and see the area from a different angle.

Hello dh2005, aww thank you so much for joining our tour and we hope you had a fantastic staycation! Yes indeed, even as Singaporeans ourselves, we still discover new things and sights in Singapore from time to time. I guess this is the best time (since we are not allowed to travel) to explore our own backyard and see things from a different angle. We are so glad that you had a great experience with Bas and next time, you can be the insider guide to take your friends around to explore Singapore =) Thank you for your 5star review! Encouragement means a lot to our team, especially during hard times like this. Stay well & continue exploring!

Really great tour, I recommend it to anyone visiting Singapore. Our tour guide Bas was really knowledgable and gave us great insights into Singaporean society, religion, culture and politics. The tour itself was super interesting. We visited the wet market, Hindi temple and toured the streets of Little India. Definitely check it out!

We are Americans in Singapore for only a few days. Our tour guide, Angel, did an excellent job. She shared many things about the history and culture of Singapore and was quite knowledgeable. We loved the hawker food stalls she chose for us...so delicious. We were very happy we chose this tour and recommend it highly.

Enjoyed exploring and learning the history of some of the traditional neighborhoods in Singapore. We also learned how to use the subway system which enabled us to get around the city afterwards. Would recommend taking this tour soon after arriving in Singapore.
