Our guide was prompt in picking us up and very friendly and informative. We not only enjoyed many sights, sounds and tastes, but we learned a great deal about these neighborhoods' histories, overlap and current stories. Highly recommend both the guide and the opportunity in walk in these fascinating neighborhoods. It made us feel quite comfortable to go back and spend more time there eating and shopping and visiting houses of worship

My most memorable parts of this trip was to learn about the history of each different culture and the types of food associated with them. My diet left them with a narrow rope of what food I can taste but the guide Grayson did a good job to accommodate it. Got a chance to walk and ride the MRT here which was great. Sample of Hawker food was nice.

Kampong Glam was our favorite as far as food choices . A lot of it was bread based food which we weren't fond of. Our guide was so nice picked us up at hotel and got us a cab at the end. It was was very hard to understand what he was saying because of language barrier . But very knowledgeable about Singapore .
