The Fall of Singapore Tour is great way to experience one of the darkest period of Singaporean history. It tours the places where the battles took place and also get a prospective of the strategies used by both the Japanese and the British. It's both informative and moving. A great change from the regular Singaporean tours. Highly Recommended.
