What a great tour to have while in Singapore especially if your short in time but want to try all the foods. Richard was a great tour guide and very knowledgeable about the different cultures and history of Singapore. The tour went over time but we were all enjoying ourselves and ready to try more food even though we were ready to burst.
Loved the touch of a little cheat card that was handed to us at the start of the tour. One side on how to order Kopi and the other side all the dishes you have to try. A large list but since I was in Singapore for a few weeks I was able to get through it all! Hawker centers can be daunting to any new comers, so going on this tour and having the cheat sheet on hand made you more comfortable in your way around Hawker centers.

I had the pleasure to go on a food tour through various neighborhoods of Singapore with Richard. Even though it lasted 7 hours I did not see the time passing. It was so informative and all foods were delicious. Richard took care of everything, ordered the food, explained everything, even provided napkins and disinfectant. Along the way we learned a lot about the history of Singapore, the cuisines of the different ethnicities and even about the public housing scheme. I highly advise this tour to anyone looking for an authentic introduction to Singapore.

A chance to go to where and how the locals live in this vibrant and fast pace city was everything that I was looking for on my short stay in Singapore.
Gee Soo Boo our guide was amazing and very diligent in his care of the group from ensuring we had great hygiene care to looking after us in the oppressive heat of the day.
The tour was more than just about the food. It was the ability to understand the history of each region and how the people lived in Singapore today.
Small group tour and well done, would recommend it to anyone.

This was my first time travelling alone and I was apprehensive doing a tour with people I didn’t know. However, Richard was very accomodating. He is very knowledgeable and really cared about the welfare of our group. The walking aspect wasn’t tiring at all and we had plenty of opportunities for breaks along the way. He gave a lot of insight into the history, need-to-know tourist laws and culture of Singapore; the food aspect of it really added another dimension to the tour. I would honestly recommend this tour to anyone who would like an overview of Singapore and it’s food culture. The food was amazing and the experience was definitely worth it. I felt really safe and well looked after. Richard really goes the extra mile in the tour and made sure all of us knew how to go to our respective hotels at the end of the tour. I met some really nice people along too

I was visiting Singapore for just a few days by myself. Doing this tour was such a great way to explore a lot, learn a lot, eat a lot. By the time we were done I had tried so many different items and everything was beyond delicious! Richard was a knowledgeable guide, kept us engaged and went above and beyond to make sure we were getting a real Singapore experience! Thank you!

Gee Soo is a terrific guide! He is knowledgeable, attentive and his love for Singapore is evident and contagious. He effectively navigated us through a variety of neighborhoods representing different cultures. As we sampled the local food and drink, Gee Soo gave us a lively commentary. No worries, the food is plentiful. I can't think of a better way to learn about Singapore. it was a wonderful experience for me and one I will never forget. P.S. After the tour Gee Soo sent us a list of all the places we visited and the names of all the foods and beverages we sampled. A big bonus!

RK was such a wonderful guide. He had a ton of information and really took his time to make sure that we were enjoying ourselves. I had a ton of this food on my list during my time in Singapore but I didn't think there would be any way that I would be able to get to try all the different foods, let alone in one day. This tour completely enabled that desire. It was informative and delicious and if you are serious about trying the local food in Singapore, consider taking this tour.

We did the food tour last week and it was amazing 🤩🤩🤩 Gene is an excellent guide and you can tell he really cares for his clients. The tour covers a lot of types of food and different neighborhoods and was our first introduction to Singapore. We would highly recommend taking this, or any, tour with Hello Singapore.
