Phil was great. Phil picked us up at our hotel and we toured for the day and then he dropped us at the terminal for our cruise ship. He planned a day to hit all the highlights of the city. We even saw some of the sights of Crazy, Rich Asians! I would highly recommend Phil, he knew the city and the cultural very well and answered all of questions.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan, Thanks for the delightful day and I'm glad we squeezed it all in before your ship!

Sara OhashiUnited States
Wow Phil brought our two families together on his tour. My husband and I did a family trip to Singapore for our wedding with our two families and everyone enjoyed themselves so much on Phil's tour and loved him so much. And some members in our family are not easy. But he was so smooth, kept everyone together, everyone understood where we were going and when, and all the fun history and new development facts of Singapore. Phil was flexible, prompt, timely, orderly, fun, cheerful, amazing, & knowledgeable!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sara & Gerald, thanks for such an amazing review! I am so glad that I managed to bring your families together during such an important trip! I enjoyed the company of everyone in your family and all of you are super nice and sweet! It is so heartwarming to know that your wedding went beautifully well and thanks for having me to share your joy! The macadamia nuts you gave me were amazing! My mom and I finished a can at one go! Couldn't stop! Thanks for bringing the warmth of Hawaii to Singapore! Mahalo

Lauren ArborioUnited States
Phil was great. picked me up from the airport in a bit suv with A/C and took me everywhere one can go in a few hours. He got me food at the market and took me to areas tourists wouldn't know where to go. He gave me a history of the country. Pricey but worth it for me
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Lauren, Thank you! I'm so glad we managed to squeeze in so much in your short few hours in Singapore. Hope to see you back here again one day!

Richard MattiesUnited States
We were a group of 4 (2 couples) which finished an Oceania cruise tour in Singapore. We had booked a TBL introduction to Singapore tour the morning we arrived, and Phil was our guide (and he picked us up at our hotel). He was terrific, taking us all around Singapore, introducing us to all parts of the city, new and old. He gave us a good recent history of his city, and told us about his family life. His English was superb. A truly excellent tour and guide, highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Richard, thanks for the very kind words and the wonderful morning together! I'm glad we also found an Orchid named after you hahah.

Phil congeniality and knowledge of Singapore made our time with him truly enjoyable. We were concerned that three days might be a bit much with one guide but that was not the case with Phil. His insights into the history, government and people of Singapore were amazing.

David SingerUnited States
Phil took us on a comprehensive 8-hour tour of Singapore - we told him we wanted to see as much as possible so we could decide what to do in depth during the rest of tour trip, and he obliged. Of course he took us to the mandatory stops like the Merlion, Chinatown, and Gardens by the Bay, but we also visited places we never would have found on our own like the Former Ford Factory (WWII Occupation museum), Haji Street, and Skyville@Dawson for a spectacular view from the 47th floor. A GREAT day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks David! It was a pleasure spending the day with you and Diane and I’m glad we managed to see and do so much in our 8 hours together! Enjoy your 2 remaining days in SG and have a safe flight home! :)
Cristina Pereyra AlvarezMiami, FL, United States
When in Singapore don't miss the opportunity to hire Phil.He was the highlight of the trip. I wish I had booked for the first day we were there and not the last because we would have asked him to take us more places and do so many more things for us. He is extremely knowledgeable,picked us up in a beautiful car,on time and showed us things we would not have otherwise seen.I would contact him again if I have the opportunity to return.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Cristina, It was a real pleasure meeting you and I'm glad you enjoyed the tour! Thanks for the very kind words and so happy to hear I was the highlight of the trip!! Hope to see you back in Singapore again in the future!
