Because to the pandemic, Singaporeans get to know our southern islands better. Love the ferry rides. Especially the morning ride, we went up for the open air deck (below is air conditioned), feeling the cool breeze with Singapore sea view. The islands are beautiful... Lazarus beach is a must visit for all. Time travel to Langkawi/Phuket. Sea water is transparent, pretty greenish blue hue, tiny fishes swim around our half submerged feet. Watch out for the cute monkeys at Kusu island, we saw two at the Malay shrine. Do climb up the stairs to visit. Overall, highly recommended. Please bring along sunblock and also insect repellent. Maybe a set of clothes to change too (after swimming/water activities etc). We definitely enjoyed ourselves for this trip, especially with the friendly and knowledgeable bilingual tour guide Jack Zhao, he takes beautiful and artistic photos for us. A good tour guide is essential for any tour. And oh, if you prefer lesser crowd, do visit during weekdays instead.
Weather has been kind to us - light drizzle but mostly cloudy throughout the trip. Guide Augustine is our unofficial photographer and at the end of trip, he made a few videos for our memories 👍🏻 He is approchable and regularly checks the well being of the participants. An enjoyable trip with family and colleagues to discover Singapore! 🌻
I joined the tour led by Jack and greatly enjoyed myself! Thanks Jack for sharing his great knowledgeable insights to the history of islands and being such a lovely friendly tour guide!! The ferry cruise was fuss free and comfortable. We explored different islands all in one trip which makes the tour really worth it! The beach and nature walks were relaxing with beautiful scenery, Jack shared so much fun facts along the tour. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and great way to spend weekend morning exploring Singapore! A tip remember to bring food + water so you can enjoy a picnic on the beach 🌴
First time exploring the islands around Singapore! Our tour was led by Jack and was amazingly the best tour guide me and partner could ever ask. He was patient and knowledgable in answering all our curiousity and sharing his experience with us and best of all, he offered to take wonderful photos for us and a short video of the tour too!
We were lucky that we get to see the beautiful beaches and scenery in the most wonderful weather.
For first timers, do expect tons of walking and prepare additional drinks and food as well!
Went for the tour conducted by Jack, and it was an extremely memorable and enjoyable experience! Highly recommend this tour, especially if it is one's first visit to the Southern Islands. Jack was a fantastic tour guide who was enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge of the islands and of Singapore, took us to explore off the beaten paths on the islands, and even advised on the best spots to take unique photos. Jack was also very thoughtful and accommodative, provided us with mosquito repellent and patches, and treated everyone a cold beverage near the end of the tour. There's also pockets of free time allocated for tourists to have a picnic and to explore the island on their own. Overall, this was a 10/10 experience!
It’s our first time to the offshore islands of Singapore and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves with our tour guide - Jack. He has prepared an itinerary for the entire team and arranged the logistics prior our arrival. He also shared with us many interesting stories about the islands along the way and volunteered to take pictures of scenic spots for us. Jack has also brought us around to different parts of the islands and at the same time, was mindful of the time too. We are truly thankful to have Jack and would return for future tours with him!
