Phil was very knowledgeable , not only about WWII, but his about his country and history. Exactly what we wanted. Cindy

We combined this tour with Phil's specialty Jewish SIngapore tour, so we were able to spend the whole day with this wonderful, charming and extremely knowledgeable guide. We toured the places where the British made the decision to surrender to the Japanese in 1942, and the Ford Factory where the surrender took place. Both are well-designed museums. We also saw the British cemetery. We would not have missed this experience (oh, and we also passed by some Crazy Rich Asian sites -- a bonus)!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kathy and Hal, it has been an enjoyable 2 days and thanks for being so sweet, kind and such a wonderful company! Thanks for sharing all the WW stories and places you have seen during your travels and I hope our tour about Singapore's WW2 added to that. So happy to hear you enjoyed the CRA sites too and I'm glad that after 2 days we left no stones unturned!
Yale CombsUnited States
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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Yale! It was an absolute delight spending 3 days with you. Thanks for the wonderful time together and the very kind words!
Phil was flexible, friendly and knowledgeable. He had a good quality vehicle large enough for all our luggage and was a good driver. Our day in Singapore was made interesting, enjoyable and relaxing thanks to his easy manner, familiarity with all the city locations and broad knowledge of both current politics/economics, as well as history.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Caroline for your very kind words! It was a pleasure showing you around and I had a very enjoyable morning as well! :)
David KingDallas, TX, United States
The half-day WW 2 tour of Singapore was memorable! Phil was knowledgeable about the local history and threw in some wonderful facts along the way. He also showed us some other things to do in Singapore as regular tourists, like the cable ride to Sentosa. All of the WW 2 sites in Singapore cannot be seen in a half day, of course, and I was very glad to see some of the more offbeat sites as well. He dropped us off at Battlebox at the end of the tour. Book Phil for a nice overview of Singapore war history.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David for the very kind words! I'm glad you had a nice time and I hope battle box was good! :)

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Peter :)
A wonderful tour with PHIL this afternoon. Very knowledgeable guide and very happy to personalise experience. Managed to find the house I lived in as a child 50 years ago- it totally blew me away. Can not express how great it was to relive memories. We really enjoyed the whole afternoon. PHIL has a great sense of humour which made everything more fun. So worth the extra to go on your own personal journey round Singapore's history.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Andy and Lindsay, thanks for the very kind comments. Thanks for sharing with me your story about Singapore and it is an absolute pleasure walking down memory lane with you and listening to your childhood stories! :)

Jill LevertonNapa, CA, United States
We enjoyed our time with Phil in Singapore. Having been here before we were interested in doing something different and the WW ii tour fit the bill perfectly. In addition, since w had the time he showed us the recently opened Bay gardens under glass, very impressive. Phil was very familiar with Singapore and its history. I would definitely use him again as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jill! I had a beautiful day with your group as well! :)

I'm a female single traveler.I found Phil to be very friendly & courteous. I felt well informed, saw & learnt many things. He even helped me with one or two local etiquette & information, which I later found useful.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sima! It was a real pleasure showing you Singapore! Thank you and i hope your niece(or her dad) love those textbooks u bought them! :)

Shelley GreenwaldUnited States
We booked Phil for specific goals which we was able to fulfill. We needed a ride from an early arriving flight to a mid afternoon ship embarkation. We had been to Singapore on prior occasions but were interested in learning more about the history relating to World War II. Phil provided a comfortable car and access to all the appropriate sites including an excellent self guided (with audio) museum. Phil was pleasant, reliable and knowledgable. We enjoyed our time with him and are happy to recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Shelley!
