Travel to some of Singapore's oldest territories and discover its origins as you stroll down memory lane. Enjoy the tropical breeze on a Trishaw Uncle ride and blend into each district – Singapore River, Little India, Kampong Glam, and Chinatown – for an authentic, old-timey Singaporean journey. Be greeted by a true blue trishaw “uncle,” a term of endearment for trishaw riders given by locals. In history, trishaw uncles formed the early backbone of the country's labor force, thanks to their manual strength to get people to places before the emergence of modern transportation. Beneath every unique corner has a story of its own and combining them all together lead up to the competitive, thriving nation we know as Singapore today. Venture deeper into Chinatown for its temples and restored shophouses; Singapore River for its incredible port relations with the rest of the world; Kampong Glam for its migrant roots with hints of Malay and Indian cultures; and finally, Little India for the interesting mix of local and migrant communities. Don't forget to drop by the shops in these areas and treat yourself to some kitschy souvenir. Guided by professional trishaw riders, you're in for a different kind of expedition as you look back to these places in awe.

This is the 1st time that we join a guided tour. My husband and I had been to Ubin a number of times either cycling or hiking on our own. I would say the trip was very enjoyable, we got to know a lot more about the island and the eco-system. The 4 hours was well-spent. Good job to Jeff who had rekindled our interest to re-discover Singapore that we thot we knew. We are now checking the other bike tours organized by Bike around tour Singapore.
Group of 4 of us joined the 1/2-day Pulau Ubin cycling tour. The guide Jeff was excellent - very knowledgeable, very friendly and jovial and made the tour fun and enjoyable. Parts of the tour were slightly physically demanding, involving uphill cycling through forest trails and a little hiking up a hill. However, there were many breaks along the way and Jeff would explain interesting facts about the environment, plants and animals living on the island to break the monotony of the tour while allowing us to take little breaks. Overall, a well organized and friendly tour and a pleasant experience for me. Highly recommended for Singaporeans who have not explored Pulau Ubin before.
Very good experiences visit Singapore River Safari yesterday with 4 best friends. The design on the Safari is great although heavy rain when we arr. The walkway are sheltered. Therefore we still can walk n experience the Safari. The only thing with bad experience is under booking part. The website for booking should be more used friend.
It was easy redeeming the Singapore Rediscover vouchers from the Klook app. We went on a Saturday afternoon. Well controlled crowd. We were impressed with the maze especially the colorful lightings. We didn't spend too long inside as it was quite a small area. But we really like strolling at canopy park & taking pictures. The kids were having so much fun playing at the slides. And the adults can rest with plenty of benches around the area. We will definitely come back again!!
It was easy redeeming the Singapore Rediscover vouchers from the Klook app. We went on a Saturday afternoon. Well controlled crowd. We love the view from the bridge. The Rain Vortex looks magnificent. The see-through glass floor look quite scary though especially if you are afraid of heights. But a good experience. We will definitely come back again.
I absolutely had a wonderful time going on the Bike Around Tour Singapore. My girlfriend and I went on the Ubin Island Bike Tour and we both have never been to Pulau Ubin before. Jeff, our tour guide was energetic, positive, and so knowledgeable too! To hear him talk about the local flora and fauna and also shared his personal experiences as a child. We couldn't have asked for a better tour guide. 5/5 would definitely go another tour of his! Recommend going on the weekdays instead as the groups are smaller and the tours feel much more personal.
