This was well worth paying extra for. We were picked up and returned to our hotel. One person could not walk very well, so having a private tour was helpful, she did not hold up the bus. Our guide and driver were excellent.

I want to express how happy I was with my entire day in Singapore. I arrived on a cruise ship and wanted to see Singapore so decided to spend 1 night as that was all I was able to do. Because my time was so limited I wanted to see as much as I could in the short time I was there. It was amazing. I arranged for a private pick up at the cruise terminal to take us to our hotel. I then arranged a private 4 hour tour of the city and then also did a night river cruise. Everything went like clock work. Each leg of my days journey was a different person and each time the guide I was with contacted the next person and made full arrangements for the drop off and pick up. It was amazing. I was very impressed. Thank you so much for making my day in Singapore so memorable.

The tour and guide were perfect for us. The only thing keeping this from 5 stars is that we were in the midst of a monsoon rain that morning. In spite of the rain, we thoroughly enjoyed the visit to the orchid garden, the visit to the oldest Chinese temple, the Merlion and so much more. I would recommend this tour as a good overview of beautiful Singapore.
