Jay KohornUnited States
Monica was great. She fashioned a very complete exposure to her city, and we felt our time together covered everything we had wanted to see. She was very kind and paid careful attention to our safety and comfort. This tour was accomplished totally through use of the city's wonderful subway system and walking, which gave us a very intimate feeling for the neighborhoods. We enjoyed Chinatown, Little India, and the Supreme Court as well as checking out the casino and going to the top of the Marina Bay Hotel.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jay, Thank you for your kind comments and rating. I really appreciate it. I am really happy to meet such nice people like all of you.;)
Anna StoddardUnited States
Thank you, Monica, for a great day! We learned so much, saw so much and thoroughly enjoyed Monica's company. She was also considerate of minimizing walking in the sun, whenever possible. We went to "unknown" places that were not at all crowded. Monica has a wealth of information about singapore's History, cultures and government. This is definitely the way to see the city! We look forward to returning...Monica is a great "ambassador"!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Once again, I want to say a very big THANK YOU for coming on my tour. You went with my flow and made my job so easy. Loved every minute spent with you:)
Robert MeyerUnited States
Monica made our time in Singapore pure delight. She was waiting for us at the airport on our delayed arrival and made arrangements to assure we received our full touring time in the city. Monica was attentive to our needs and made herself available to us again in the evening to extended tour including the evening light show under the iconic Singapore trees. In one short day after 18 hours of flying, we received much more of Singapore than we dared to hope. Thank you, Monica, for a great day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robert, Hearing your compliment is the greatest intrinsic reward for me. It is tourists like you who make me want to be a tourist guide for the rest of my life! I wish you the very best of health and happiness. Really honoured to be your tour guide:)
Michael DavisUnited Kingdom
Monica is a great guide for a fantastic city. The sights, food and tour of the city by night was a great finale to our Far East cruise. Her personal knowledge of the city, its history and local detail ensured we had a really informative and enjoyable evening tour. Can recommend both the guide and Tours by Locals to anyone who wants personal and individual service at the right price! Mike and Beverley
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mike and Beverley, Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be your guide in Singapore. I wish both of you the very best in every aspect of your life. Take care :)
Frank CannonUnited States
WOW--Singapore at night was spectacular. And Monica made it happen for us right from the very start at Gardens by the Bay. The "Super Trees" with the light and sound show are not to be missed! Clarke Quay was a great outdoor bar and restaurant scene we would really like to spend some time. It felt like a real taste of the city--crowded and pleasantly noisy. Ending up at CHIJMES was a much more subdued treat. Will need to return to try the restaurants.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I really appreciate this feedback. Thank you so much, Frank.. It makes it all worthwhile:)
Frank CannonUnited States
Monica was a great guide and very accommodating when we arrived at our hotel a bit (30min) late! We enjoyed ducking into the AC from time to time to find relief from the HEAT. Our overview of SIN from Monica gave us some real insight into the layout of the city, particularly the old part. In addition, we started to get some sense of how the city is operated--a "fine" city.
Jason W.Los Angeles, CA, United States
Monica was simply excellent and the tour provided a great introduction to the city and all of its key locations. Monica also focused on teaching you how to use the MRT system so you were proficient to get around on your own for the remainder of your time in Singapore. She was knowledgable, accommodating and just lovely to spend a day with. I would highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jason, Thank you for your kind words. Ii was really my pleasure to show you around my city. Take care and all the best with your endeavour:)

4 hour walking tour on the Singapore Botanical Gardens Friday March 2nd. Rating 5☆ out of 5. What a joy and what a splendid guide and outstanding person. David and Eileen
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David and Eileen, Thank you for allowing me to show you the Garden. It was really a joy for me to spend this wonderful morning with both of you. Take care and have fun on the cruise. :)
Mary Catherine GanahlUnited States

Monica did an outstanding job giving our party of 5 an evening tour of Singapore. We saw all the highlights mentioned plus she gave us time to take pictures and buy few postcards. Monica took us to where the locals eat that evening on our request. Monica helped us order our food and made suggestions for food items we should try during our visit. The food was delicious. Wonderful evening! Thank you Monica

Monica and her Driver, Melvin, enchanted five friends with a wonderful tour of Singapore. Every sight we wanted to see we saw as well as additional sights they thought we would be interested in. Monica and Melvin went out of their way to accommodate special requests. We would tour again with Monica and Melvin in a heart beat. We feel like we made new friends.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for bringing so much joy and laughter to the tour. It was indeed like showing my friends around Singapore. You made us feel like we were not on the job at all.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nigel, Thank you very much. It is an honor and a pleasure to be your tour guide. Happy New Year:)
Jennifer SmithUnited States
Monica was a great guide. She took time to ask me what I had already seen and then tailored our tour around that, even taking me to a housing estate to get away from the touristy spots and learn more about the daily life of Singaporeans. She was a lot of fun. My only regret is that I didn't start my week with her - she knew all of the underground (i.e. air-conditioned) ways to get around town. I would not hesitate to recommend Monica to anyone visiting Singapore.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jennifer, Thank you for your kind words and accepting my suggestions so readily. I really enjoyed the time we spent together. I wish you a very blessed Christmas and all the best for the coming New Year:)
Ten out of Five for this team. I have used tours by locals several times and Monica was top notch in every regard. Very attentive to our needs. She did everything we wanted and threw in several extras. Driver Melvin was so helpful, especially with my wife who has some mobility issues. I would recommend these two individuals to anyone. Great English and incredible knowledge of Singapore's history, geography and culture. Thanks a lot!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tom, Thank you for your kind words. You are the 5 star tourists.:):):) Thank you for making our job so easy because all of you were so interested to know about Singapore. The best part is you are so cheerful and Melvin and I love working with happy people.:)

Joan H.United States
Having Monica as a personal guide was as if a family friend had come to take me around Singapore. Her professional manner and constant attention to my needs and comfort made this the best tour I have ever had. Not only did I get to see the sights, but also learned how to navigate the local transportation systems so I will be better able to move about the next time I travel to Singapore.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joan, I feel the same way too- a family friend who allowed me to show you Singapore at such a comfortable pace. It was a real joy being your guide:)

Very sweet lady. Monica greeted us at the airport (earlier than agreed), and took us to a beautiful journey across Singapore. She is very professional and extremely knowledgeable. We had four kids with LOTS of questions, and she was very patient to answer each and every one of them! We will definitely book her again for our future visit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dan, thank you for your compliment. I had loads of fun showing you and your family around. Your kids' interest and intelligent questions made my job so easy and meaningful. Wonderful and best family i had ever met on my tours.

Monica was an excellent guide. She worked with me to set up a schedule of local sights I wanted to see and she did not disappoint. She spoke excellent English and had a bubbly, humorous personality. Her knowledge of the city was vast, and she helped us to understand the city so we can do more sightseeing the next day. Would highly recommend. Connie

Monica was enjoyable and interesting to spend the day with. She really listened to us and accommodated special requests for peanut-free lunch in Chinatown, shopping for a special travel item, and a visit to the top of the Marina Bay Sands resort.

We had the pleasure of having Monica as our guide of the attractions of Singapore. My family feel extremely privileged to have met Monica and to have her impart some of her immense knowledge of her home country. Monica is a history buff and had many interesting stories of the places we visited. She is also passionate about what she does and this makes her tour all the more fun and exciting. Our tour just raced by and we were all sad to say good bye to our amazing host at the end of it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Remo, Thank you for your kind words. It was indeed a pleasure to show you and your family around Singapore. When you enjoyed the tour, I enjoyed it at double the rate. I wish you and your family a very happy and blessed Year 2017. Take care!
