  • lannie lyn 4 Jun 2018

  • Nina Monique 21 May 2018
    We had so much fun on this activity, literally grinning from ear-to-ear throughout the entire experience. Our scheduled tour was the 430pm english one and as it turned out, my bf and i were the only ones in it. The tour guide was upbeat the entire time and was full of good info to know. My bf is a local and he throughly enjoyed the tidbits as well as the tour itself. just a side note: this tour is only good for an hour so don't expect it to go around the whole of singapore. recommended activity simply coz of the people we encountered.
  • Maria Joy Iris 3 Apr 2018
    The activity will take for an hour only. Even though it rained, we still enjoyed sightseeing and learned the history of singapore. Recommended!👍
  • MARISOL 13 Mar 2018

  • Jyndyl 5 Feb 2018
    It was raining during our tour but the tour guide was accomodating to answer our questions about the history of Singpore.
  • Chih Cheng 22 Dec 2017
    Was told the 3:30pm is mandarin guided tour. We rush to the bus only to find that it’s still a English one. My family ended up wasting an hour sleeping on the bus because they can’t understand the Singlish
  • Myat Thu Zar 7 Oct 2017
    Good know the whole Singapore in a hour, but the weather was good at that time.
  • Sam Rui Shen 19 Sep 2017
    Fun and enjoyable ride well spent for a quick tour around Singapore!
  • YAMIEN 25 Feb 2018
    Sucks, guides to say not say, think of it to say a few words, the other to ask the passengers themselves. . . Just arrived to know what to ask, ducks boat tour guide is much more rich
