Joy ErwtemanUnited States
Because of Anna, we got to enjoy Singapore by night!! Loved the light show at the top of The Marina Bay Sands Hotel. Especially loved the light and sound show at the Gardens By the Bay. To see Chinatown at night all lit up and decorated for the Chinese New Year was very special. We highly recommend Anna for your tours in Singapore.
Joy ErwtemanUnited States
Anna allowed us to enjoy Singapore during our stay by customizing our tour to incorporate all the areas we were interested in. We especially enjoyed The Gardens by the Bay. They were magnificent. Anna is fluent in English, very knowledgeable in Singapore past and present. She was on time and accompanied by a very excellent driver, Ricky. I highly recommend her to tourists visiting Singapore.
Jerome FalkUnited States
This is an excellent, interesting and informative tour with a delightful and charming guide. We enjoyed every minute. Highly recommended.
Franklin GrahamUnited States
We had a personal, customized, five hour tour with Anna. She is one of the best TBL guides we have ever had. Her comprehensive, in-depth knowledge of Singaporean history, politics and daily life come from her authentic experiences. Her language skills are superb, her personality is delightful, and she could not do enough for us. Highly satisfied with this tour and would highly recommend Anna for any visitor wanting a comprehensive overview of Singapore.
Paul DickerUnited States
Such a great tour guide - funny, personable, informative. Worked with us to see many things on a tight itinerary. Cannot recommend more strongly.....

Alan SherryUnited States
Anna was a great tour guide and we really enjoyed experiencing Singapore with her help. Having Anna accompany us to these sights allowed a deeper look into each part of the city. She is enthusiastic, client-focused, down-to-earth and a wonderful representative for the fascinating city of Singapore.

Hermiena LombaardSouth Africa
Anna is an excellent guide. We learned on our 8 hour private tour through Singapore so much. Her knowledge about the city, culture and food are exceptional. She is energetic and very friendly. Thanks Anna for making our day in Singapore so special. Hermiena, South Africa
Anna was amazing.I was a solo traveler with limited time to sight see. We packed in so much and Anna was so knowledgeable.Definitely recommended.
Our guide was fantastic. From showings how to use the subway, telling history and taking us to local places to eat and drink. We would never have found these places by ourselves. Well worth booking. Will certainly book Anna again and recommend her to ours friends travelling to Singapore.
What a terrific guide Anna was today. Answered all our questions, was flexible in terms of what we did/didn't want to see, allowed for plenty of stops when we wanted them and was clearly very knowledgeable about the whole area of Little India as well as Singapore as a whole, of course.
Adrian KingUnited States
Great tour by Anna. If there is something she doesn't know about Singapore then I certainly did not find it. Nice person to travel around with, speaks perfect English, and she had the whole day organized. Highly recommended.
Lynette SmithUnited States
Ana was fantastic, extremely knowledgeable, very warm and well versed all the way around; Iam handicapped and she was very sensitive to our special needs.. We look forward to returning to Singapore and spending more time with this unique lady. We highly recommend her.

A well informed guide who maximised our day tour of Singapore
Merdene HessUnited States
Anna is an attractive, nice, courteous tour guide: right on time and called ahead. However, we We requested a car tour because my husband had just completed radiation therapy . This was an additional charge of $431 an exorbitant amount and we were not in the car that much. The air conditioning was much too cold and we asked for it to be lowered and it never happened I rolled my window down to get warm and was told to roll it back up. We eventually had jackets on, cold noses and ears hands to warm up
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Merdene, I am sorry to hear how you felt about the temperature inside the car. 1. Aircon blower at the back was shut off promptly, when you mentioned cold. 2. I asked, but you did not said you unwind window due to cold, and so driver winded window up & down, in order to clear the rain droplets on your window. Please accept my apology for being too engrossed in our conversation, that I had over looked, you may still feel cold even when you had your jacket on!

Rebecca BraniffUnited States
Anna was an amazing tour guide! Very knowledgable and enthusiastic about Singapore. I only had one day in the city and she really helped me make the most of it.
Denise DaganUnited States
Anna was absolutely terrific. She is warm, funny, flexible, and really knows her Singapore history. We asked her to show us how to get around on public transportation and show us sights we wouldn't get much out of seeing on our own. She did just that and offered us the opportunity to dine with either an Indian or Filipino family. We chose Indian and they were lovely people with a delicious dinner to share. Best yet, Anna spent 12 hours with us, including dinner. An excellent value and new friends.
Rick DuqueUnited States
Anna was simply wonderful! In love with her city/country and willing to share its history and geography, Anna showed us all aspects of Singapore. Thanks to her excellent approach and knowledge, we will be back!
Miljenko PilepichUnited States
We feel very fortunate to have Anna as our guide. The tour was perfect!!!
Danielle KilpatrickUnited States
Diane BofferdingUnited States
I really liked that Ana emailed me again before our tour to confirm the details of the tour. She met us at the cruise terminal. We used subways to explore many varied areas of Singapore. We ate at local restaurants. She gave us great insight in how to use their public transportation. Ana helped us by letting us know what we could see by ourselves that night and the next day that we were going to be in Singapore. Ana was very informed and I would highly recommend her.

Susan WarnerUnited Kingdom
Anna was an excellent tour guide very friendly and informative. We were a party of 6 people. She took us to all the places we wanted to visit and introduced us to lots of yummy food. She told us about Singapore past present and in the future. We would have no hesitation in recommending Anna as a tour guide. Sue Warner UK
Elic CalhounUnited States
Anna was great! She had amazing insight to what makes Singapore such an amazing city. Cant wait to go back and will defiantly re-book with Anna to check out more of the city!!
David NaehringUnited States
Our Singapore tour by Anna Ong was OUTSTANDING. We have had private tour guides around the world but none has ever been as good as Anna. She was early and worked tirelessly for us--if there was something we did not want to do, she was creative with a work around and if there was something we liked she built upon it. She inquired about dinner with a local family and we loved it--she is enthusiastic about Singapore and we loved every moment with her. She is the consummate professional!
Anna was friendly, informative and was amazing to have as a guide. The tour was lead by us in how long we wished to stay at our places chosen and guided by her knowledge and experience which we highly valued. Would highly recommend her as a guide.
Elizabeth (Penny) CopleyUnited States
Best ever-competent. Conscientious, knowledgeable, energetic, enthUsiastic, over and above!
Lezli VigueUnited States
I spent a wonderful day touring Singapore with Anna of Tours by Locals. After several email exchanges prior to my trip, Anna was able to craft a day of sightseeing to suit my tastes. She is very passionate about her city and extremely knowledgeable about the city's history and culture. Highlights - hawker center, Chinese tea making, calligraphy - and lots of history! She even made other reservations for me. I highly recommend Anna!
Carol ZwickUnited States
We had real concern about spending 4 days with a guide we never met. We had the BEST time with Anna, During are emails she kept saying it was our trip and it was. Did everything we wanted to do. When we had questions about the "housing neighborhoods"in Singapore she took us there so that we could see how the work. We visited the shopping center associated with the center,my husband had a hair cut,my, we visited a bakery "yum", ate at restaurant. She went out of her way to organize our time free time.
Carl MarionUnited States
Anna was amazing while taking us through Singapore. She explored the city not only for the tourist spots, but into the heart and soul of the cities citizens and life style. We experienced local food favorites as well. Wonderful day with Anna!! 10 stars!!!
Robert CooperUnited States
Anna was excellent before, during and after our tour. Everything delivered as promised and excellent itinerary with perfect information, driver and vehicle. She went beyond expectations. Who recommend her without reservation
Susan BegynUnited States
Couldn't ask for a better tour guide. We had hard rain most of the day, yet Anna did a wonderful job showing us Singapore. We will definitely be return customers and highly recommend Anna!
Thomas MarminsUnited States
She met us at our hotel with a car and driver and spent the day with us as she brought to life all of the wonderful sites with her knowledge and personality. There was so much to see, but she kept a comfortable pace and adjusted our day to suit those things we thought most important. We had a wonderful lunch at a local restaurant. We would highly recommend her to anybody needing a guide in Singapore. It would be hard to find anyone better or more knowledgeable after the tour she joined us for dinner.
Anna Ong was a perfect tour guide during our stay in Singapore. She is a very nice, friendly and helpful person with an enormous knowledge and the time we spend with her was completely satisfying.
James KendrickUnited States
Outstanding! Very knowledgeable, excellent English, outgoing and fun personality. Could not be better.
Douglas FiskUnited States
My wife and I spent a fantastic day exploring with Anna. Having traveled all over the world, she is one of the best guides I have ever met. She didn't just show us Singapore, she taught us about her home. We learned how to eat at the food hawkers, what to order, what to avoid, and she encouraged us to experience the markets, temples, the Malay, Indian and Chinese neighborhoods. She was flexible, and showed us her city from a place of pride and passion. She was simply the best; I recommend her highly!
Jon L.Dorena, OR, United States
Why is there not a sixth star rating? Anna would certainly qualify for one! It's obvious she loves her city and is proud to expose others to it. Such energy and enthusiasm! What she showed us in six hours only scraped the surface she warned us. Efficient use of her driver meant no wasted time as we moved from venue to venue. Her knowledge of the history, politics, religion, ethnic composition, and future of Singapore was encyclopedic. Anna, you're the best!
Nicholas WhitingUnited Kingdom
Anna arranged a custom tour for us starting with a collection from the cruise terminal, ending up at Changi airport. She accommodated our wishes and included a visit to Kranji cemetary. She was very knowledgeable and entertaining throughout the day, always suggesting something new. This was not a cheap tour by any means, but for the time we had available, she helped us make the most of it
John LysonsUnited Kingdom
This tour can only be described as superb. We were here on a cruise and I booked Anna with a car and driver. It really was worthwhile. Anna is just a delightful guide. Anna's local knowledge of Singapore was invaluable, she was highly informative and interesting. It rained quite heavily but thanks to Anna's local knowledge she was able to adapt the tour to suite. She showed us some fabulous sights, taking into account our particular interests. Thanks Anna for giving us a great afternoon.
Susan GoodnatureUnited States
Designed and conducted our tour to accommodate our priorities and made excellent recommendations. Extremely knowledgable very professional. One of the top 5 tour guides in many years and countries. She really made it informative and fun.
Kandace CampbellHouston, TX, United States
Anna is wonderful. Very knowledgeable and accommidating
Kandace CampbellHouston, TX, United States
She is always willing to go the extra mile so you are able to see the sights that are important to you
Ronald Ericksonscottsbluff, NE, United States
Anna really did a great job. Friendly, knowledgeable, and happy. Anna and the driver, Ricky, made it fun for us. Easily a 5 star and 10 out of 10 rating. We would not hesitate to use Annas services when we return to Singapore. The night lights and river tour was outstanding.
Donna J.United States
Anna was truly a joy to be with. She made the four of us feel very comfortable at all times and was very well versed in all that we saw. One in our group walked slowly, but she managed to show us everything anyway. We would absolutely highly recommend her to anyone, anytime.
Jeffrey W.United States
Anna was very knowledgable about her home city. She was very patient and accommodating with us. We learned about the past, present and future of Singapore.Thank you Anna.
Elliott Dale RiceUnited States
An awesome experience. Anna was extremely knowledgeable and catered to our every wish. The best!
We have already had several Tours by Locals.com, and again, this time, we had a very wonderful and friendly guide. Anna picked us up in our hotel in time, and she has showed us all main attractions in Singapore. She is incredibly professional, polite, and extremely knowledgable as she shared the beautiful city with us. Anna was right when she told us that a half-day tour in fact is way too short to visit Singapore. Nevertheless, she managed to give us a good overview of the city and a reason to come back!
Simply the best! Very knowledgeable, she was able to adapt to our need and wishis. The night tour was very interesting. We had a wonderful time. Anna is so enthusiastic and very pleasing to be with
The tour was great. Anna was the best showing us singapore. She just did what we wanted to do and had a lot of patience. Highly recommended.She arranged everything since our arrival at the airport.
Maura MazzerUnited States
Anna was such a doll! My mother uses a collapsible wheelchair and I had requested a car as opposed to a van so we were able to see a lot more and get mom out of the car and moving around. I'm so sorry that I forgot our driver's name but both were very attentive to helping mom and Anna was even pushing her around which gave me a little break form the heat! She did a wonderful job of giving us a taste of Singapore and would highly recommend her if you want an awesome experience! Loved the fruit tasting 2
Heidi EckardUnited States
We found Anna after reading her bio on Tours by Locals, and feel so fortunate. Anna arrived early at our hotel was incredibly professional, polite, and extremely knowledgable as she shared the beautiful city with us. Anna took us to parts of Singapore we would not have known if not for her. Anna planned an itinerary that took us all around the city, even ending up with great seats at the nightly outdoor light show of the "Supertrees" at Gardens by the Bay - not to be missed. Anna is remarkable!!!
Raymon RiordanUnited States
Pamela ReuterUnited States
Anna was terrific! I highly recommend touring with her and getting a feel for the real Singapore. She gave us lots of history, her own insight into her country and was very pleasant along with her driver. The van used was clean and had cold air conditioning in the very hot weather. I have loved looking back at all my photos and reliving the day with her. Thanks Anna.
Michael LeppitschUnited States
Excellent time exploring the city, zoo, harbor, chinatown, etc. Love the local knowledge and personal perspective, what a difference from the crowded bus and megaphone tours!
Scott NixonUnited States
Anna was great! She totally customized our day to accommodate other commitments we had during the day. The van was brand new and very comfortable and Anna was extremely knowledgeable of the history of Singapore. She even took us right to immigration inside the cruise center! The four of us highly recommend Anna. Singapore is an amazing city and admittedly is easy to get around by taxi or mass transit, but we would still use Anna again because she is so knowledgeable, informative and fun to be with.
Chandra GioielloUnited States
Anna was fantastic! She was super excited to show me everywhere and really gave me a taste of the local flavor. Everything was really comfortable, I had a ton of fun, and I'd definitely recommend her to anyone I knew that was going to Singapore. She knows so much about the various cultures and the history of the country, I really feel like I understand and know it so much better now. Definitely worth it!
Kathryn (Kathy) McKeanUnited Kingdom
Booking easy,safe and Anna was wonderful, full of facts, knowledge and very adaptable. I was very particular with what I wanted to see on day 1, as this was a memory trip. Had booked car 1 day, walking next. Due to my husband injuring knee and using stick we had to use taxis 2nd day but tour was adapted well and Anna really looked after him, even carried our shopping bag! Still managed to do everything we wanted and more but differently eg driving Haji Lane and Haw Par Villa, seeing all sights Thank you
Eleanor SiegalSan Antonio, Texas, 78230, United States
Anna On was a wonderful guide--she has a great personality, an abundance of knowledge and is very friendly. In the short time we had, she put together a great overview of Singapore. We really enjoyed being with her and were very comfortable in the vehicle she provided. Highly recommend her to anyone who wants to appreciate the great city that is Singapore. The Singals, San Antonio, Texas
Christine EkmanUnited States
Anna was knowledgeable and fun. We had a wonderful tour.
Brad KardatzkeUnited States
Anna is wonderful. Our group can not say enough about her. She was helpful and she showed the great wonders of Singapore.
great tour of the city, covered all the main locations plus some out of the way spots, would repeat.
Lee AlexanderUnited States
Anna is the absolute best tour guide. Her knowledge of, and love for, Singapore made our experience in that country simply amazing. She is also flexible, tailored our tour to our individual interests, and really cares about her guests. Thanks Anna!!!!!
Wayne HooverScottsdale, AZ, United States
Anna provided us with a wonderful two days exploring her beautiful city and learning about its colorful history. Especially the variety of local foods from all of the ethnic groups that live in Singapore. Our time with Anna was one of the highlights of our month long trip to SE Asia.
Manny LucioNew Zealand
Anna is a wonderful tour guide. She made it so enjoyable and showed us the "real" Singapore. Highly recommended!!!
Luanne DeweyUnited States
I had a great tour with Anna O! She was cheerful, fun to be with and informative. I highly recommend taking a tour with Anna.
Kathleen MoonUnited States
This was one of two days we spent with Anna as our guide in Singapore. We spent a evening seeing the beautiful city lights and sites and a fuller day. She is so knowledgeable that you can't help but enjoy yourselves.
Kathleen MoonUnited States
Anna was our guide to two days in Singapore. She was very knowledgeable about all things Singapore. This made our experience very enjoyable. She had little details covered and saw that each person in our group was attended to. She was also very flexible to make changes, making the tour about our groups wants and needs and not a rigid idea of what she wanted to do. The true test of a tour is whether you would want to come back to see the place again..we would!
William ThielbahrUnited States
Anna is the tour guide you dream about. Her English is excellent, her attention to detail is excellent, her understanding of the traveler's needs is without fault, and her knowledge of Singapore and its history and surroundings is outstanding. We used the Singapore subway when necessary as well as using a taxi when necessary. We arrived at all the stops on time and made adjustments made necessary by weather conditions. It doesn't get any better.
Deborah HarligUnited States
Anna was extremely knowledgeable and our itinerary was excellent. I was traveling with my 87 year old mother and although the weather was hot, we enjoyed learning and seeing a lot of Singapore. Would not hesitate a minute to recommend Anna as a tour guide. You will not be sorry!
David NakanishiUnited States
I just completed my 5 hour evening tour with Anna and would do it again in a heart beat. I was slightly concerned that due to her schedule we were not able to meet earlier in the day but seeing Singapore at sunset with her narrative is not to be missed. The upscale nightlife of the harbor district contrasted beautifully with the grit of the evening night market in little India, worlds apart but with Anna really only a few MRT stops away.
Anna has a wealth of knowledge about her country. The information she provided us enabled us to get a good picture of the Singapore culture. She provided us with cards to the Metro which made it really easy to travel and it was a convenient way to keep track of our incidentals. She was flexible in customizing our tour to what we wanted to see making the tour more enjoyable. It was unfortunate that our timing coincided with Indonesia's burning which cast a haze across the country. Otherwise, enjoyable!
Yoshihiro NagaosaFukushima, Japan
Anna is very dedicated travel guide, exactly a jovial, active, creative, sincere and honest person. She really loves Singapore that's why she knows whole history, culture, outside, inside, everything of Singapore.I recommend her very very strongly. She always make her best effort on guests and can coordinate the tour flexibly anytime. Surely amazing & exciting!
Ivy (maxine) A.Australia
Travelled to Singapore with my husband for a few days and did a two day private walking tour with Anna. We asked for a tour showing us all aspects of Singapore - historical, cultural, today and the future. Anna delivered this perfectly and we now know Singapore very well! Anna is the perfect guide being well informed, organised, having a sense of humour and nothing we requested was any problem. Highly recommend a tour with Anna!!
John SommerUnited States
Anna O was excellent during my stay in Singapore! 5 stars no doubt! During 2 half days there she incorporated my ideas beautifully into a custom walking tour of this very interesting city. She also helped me with 2 practical matters (airline luggage damage) which solved them easily. I would recommend her without hesitation!
Andrea LatishUnited States
We went on tour for 2 days with Anna. She is fabulous, totally knowledgeable, totally flexible, knows the little facts about everything making every location more enjoyable. She is tireless with tons of energy and can get you anywhere you want to go. I give her a 10.
Peter BrinckerhoffUnited States
Anna did a great job overall. She went the extra mile for us by staying with us after the end of the tour to help us order the correct meal at a restaurant. Wonderful attitude and fun to be with.
Christine H.United States
Anna was a high energy, informed, and personally delightful guide for us in Singapore. We felt we got an insightful overview from a second generation Singaporean with many excellent suggestions for additional touring, Christine and Sandy
My family and I have recently had a short 8 hour transit stay in Singapore and arranged for a 4 hour tour with your company. I cannot express how much we enjoyed our time with Anna Ong and driver Jimmy. Anna is an absolute gem and showed us many sights and ended our stay with a visit to Newton Circus to taste some delicious local foods. Yummi Yummi
Cynthia B.United States
Anna provided a superb tour of Singapore covering diverse areas of the city along with a delicious introduction to Singapore's famous foods! Her smile and sense of humor were contagious. Anna was prompt, outgoing and caring - I felt like I was seeing Singapore with a friend. I give Anna the highest rating and recommend her services without reservation!
Brenda KobackerUnited States
We loved Anna, she couldn't have been more informative. We got to see everything on our wish lists plus more. I think I could have stayed a few more days because she made eveything so exciting. I can't say more then how happy we are with her tour. Feel safe and give Anna a try.
Laura RosenquistUnited States
All the other five-star ratings were 100% accurate; Anna was amazing. She was fun, informative, and very flexible with last-minute changes to our tour. I would absolutely recommend her for anyone visiting Singapore.
Richard RubensteinUnited States
Anna was simply wonderful. She spent 8 hours with my wife and me and answered every question and made sure that everything we wanted to see was taken care of. Be sure if you have a meal you let her rate the items--yum yum is a great rating and she was always right. And be sure to go to the special desert place with flavored shaved ice--a great experience. A 5 plus recommendation..
Judi McCanUnited States
Anna, thank you again. Anna was our tour guide for seven of us. We were good friends from Korea and USA on Holiday. Anna and our driver were very accommodating: being sensitive to our religious backgrounds and jet lag. She was kind, spoke English well and even a little Korean. Thank you, Judi McCan
Anna was very good , clear 100% english , full program , long day , attentive and informative , like touring with a good friend.
Anna was a delight from start to finish. I sent very detailed information prior to our tour to ensure we experienced Singapore in the only day we were there - and Anna did a brilliant job and didn't complain about my (rather directional) requests! She was on time, prepared, efficient and also the real love for her city shone through everything we did. I would wholeheartedly recommend Anna regardless of the TYPE of tour you want because when it comes to Singapore Anna knows and loves all. Thank you Anna!
Carey FaganUnited States
Anna was a wonderful guide. We arranged a custom tour based on our interest. She designed our day perfectly! She was very knowledgeable about the history of Singapore and was able to answer all our questions. We had a great time exploring the area of Kampong Glam. We even had the opportunity to witness a wedding in the mosque. We had a fabulous Malay lunch and Anna recommended a diverse variety of wonderful dishes. A great day and would highly recommend Anna.
Keith MargulisUnited States
We spent an amazing two days with Anna in Singapore. She prepared a customized tour for us based on our interests. She was prompt each day and spent about 10 hrs with us each day. We saw more than we ever could have on our own. The tour included cultural stops, historical stops and of course, food stops. Anna recommended a wonderful hotel for us and helped us plan a day on our own. She was easy to understand, friendly and really made an effort to provide us with the best experience possible. The best!
Maria Mercedes Cedenio GodinoPhilippines
Anna was very friendly and accommodated our last minute booking even though she wasn't feeling 100%. She had a lot of interesting info to share about random sights and items, which I enjoyed while the less historically and culturally inclined members of our group perused the shops and sights. She tailored the tour to whatever we wanted. Best of all, she took us away from the touristy crowds, a great feat, considering we toured during the Deepavali Festival.
Lucienne WallaceNew Zealand
Anna was fabulous. Her tour was perfectly tailor made to ensure a vibrant, fun, informative and personal experience. Would HIGHLY recommend her to those wanting to see the real Singapore.
Stephen W.United Kingdom
Anna was a superb tour guide. She took all our requirements into account to provide a really enjoyable two day custom tour. We really enjoyed our time in Singapore and were able to experience so much in such a short time, all thanks to Anna! It's amazing how much there is to do and see in Singapore. The food is amazing, and we sampled many local foods and had loads of ideas for our evening meals. With Anna's recommendations you don't have to break the bank for fantastic food and adventures.
James CrossUnited States
Excellent guide. Good english and very knowledgeable about her country. Flexible and very enjoyable day.
David BillinghamUnited Kingdom
Anna's skill as a guide cannot be questioned. Not only is she highly friendly, she is very knowledgeable and has a reassuring demeanour that put us at ease; a quality which is very important when in an unfamiliar place! SG at night is completely different to in the day; knowing this, Anna took us to some great locations which provided material not only for my camera but also for the memories. I thoroughly recommend this tour. Thank you, Anna :)
Philippe OdierUnited States
We had a wonderful tour with Anna, she was able to customize our needs and did a super job.We can highly recommend Anna. She introduced us to may great sights and will have so many super memories.
Thomas DelattreUnited States
WONDERFUL 2 days spent with Anna exploring the 'real' Singapore. She is easy to be with, knows and loves the city (and beyond). If your looking to catch the 'heartbeat' of Singapore Anna can take you and show you!
2 days tour spent with Anna was amazing! Me and my husband were very happy to find a tour guide like Anna. She is a true lover of the city she lives in that what makes her a perfect tour guide. We were able to see lots of places, tried variety of local food with Anna recommendation. She was easy going, no rushing just enjoying places of Singapore. She took us to places that only local people knew which was very interesting. Also she gave us some recommendation on what to do on our own. Thank you!
Teresa MacGregorUnited States
Anna was a fun and active guide. She was totally attentive to our interests and requests both before and during our tour. Plus, she introduced us to the yum-yum world of Singaporean cuisine. We had a super day out exploring and eating our way through the city. Thank you!
It was a great pleasure to get to know Singapore with Anna. Due to bad weather conditions we had to change subjects - but nonetheless, Anna could switch immediately and she gave always good advices to find this or that. Thank you Anna!
DiAnn PlunkettUnited States
We loved our day with Anna. She is enthusiastic, knowledgeable,friendly, and flexible. Her love of Singapore was contagious. We all enjoyed our tour and Anna. Thank you for a great day! Paul and DiAnn
Mark C.Saint Charles, ILLINOIS, United States
Anna did a wonderful job of filling our 10-hour layover in Singapore. She was very accommodating, picking us up promptly at the cruise terminal, showing us her delightful city, and arranging our airport drop-off. She put together a nice itinerary and was flexible in accommodating our interests, including major tourist sights and local color. She has a wealth of knowledge, is enthusiastic, and clearly proud of Singapore. Thanks, Anna, for a memorable conclusion to our Southeast Asia visit.
Charlotte HackettUnited States
Anna - was great. In 6 hours she gave a tour of the highlights of Singapore. Excellent guide, fun to be with and listened to what we liked. Thanks for the great food truck experience.
Michael MillerUnited Kingdom
I was born in Singapore and had never returned since I left at just one year old. I advised Anna of my wish list and she committed a lot of time and effort at producing an itinerary for every day of my trip, perfectly customised to me. In the quest for my roots, we visited an outlying island and also Changi Village, actually finding the house where I was born, still standing! Anna is an outstanding guide; knowledgeable, friendly, extremely dedicated and professional. Highly recommended; I'll be back!
Tammy TenagliaUnited States
Barbara EisenbergUnited States
Wish we could give Anna 6 stars! We had two wonderful days in Singapore with her. She showed us everything we had wanted to see and do, and more, at the pace that worked for us. She is a pleasure, and a wealth of information. We were sorry to say goodbye! Hope we get back to Singapore in the near future!
Gary HoffmanUnited States
Anna was an amazing guide and a wonderful person. She was a great mix of knowledge and congeniality. We not only saw great sights, but also learned much about everywhere we visited. We could not have asked for a better tour, or tour guide.
Lynn McLeanUnited States
First time we have used TBL and will definitely use again. Anna was fantastic, very professional and knowledgable. She provided a wonderful introduction to Singapore's history, culture and food. Singapore is a fantastic city. We plan to visit again and will schedule our tours with Anna. The car was very nice and driver was professional.
Linda HirschBethesda, MD, United States
Anna was a perfect guide, a patient teacher, a flexible person. With her, I not only saw all the sights, she took me "inside" the history, the culture, the evolution of this thrilling city. My appreciation is endless.
5 Stars for Anna, as she was punctual and very in tune with what our wants and needs were. We sent a few emails back and forth before our tour trying to nail down what we would like to see and experience and she delivered. We took a 4 hour night tour as well as a 4 hour day tour and this coupled with her suggestions for a free day we had gave us a very good overview of what the beautiful Country of Singapore has to offer. We will definitely use Tours by Locals again based on this experience
Katherine de PaloAustralia
Anna was great. She showed my husband, 2 adult children & I around her city in an organised & informative fashion. She was very solicitous of our welfare & enjoyment & I would recommend her unreservedly.
Nanette MayberryUnited States
We booked Anna to show us around Singapore after we got off the cruise ship. Our plane did not leave until 6:00 at night so we had about 7 hours with her. Since we had our luggage, she arranged a van and driver to take us around and to the airport. Anna was terrific! She was pleasant, knowledgeable, helpful and fun! We loved the wet market in Chinatown. There she got us many different things to eat and drink that we had never heard of! I hope to go back to Singapore and will definately hire Anna again.
Shelley GreenwaldUnited States
Anna is a compressed bubble of knowledge and enthusiasm. She aims to please and educate. We had the opportunity to visit many of the tourist sites in Singapore on prior occasions and were looking for some local, cultural insights. Anna delivered--whether it was sampling the cakes at a local bakery, visiting the hawkers, riding the subway etc. etc. it made for an interesting and different day. Anna is enthusiastic, knowledgable and accommodating. We recommend her walking tour and appreciated her insight.

Had the pleasure of a local tour of Singapore with the charming Anna O. last Saturday and we had a great time. Anna was so pleasant, knowledgeable and flexible which made the experience really great for our two grand-kids. Saw the sights and did some shopping, they were most impressed and so were we. A big 5 1/2 out of 5 from us. Thanks Anna!
We had one day to have a short view of Singapore. Anna had very well adjust the program to our wishes. She is very dynamic, kind. I strongly recommend Anna as your guide to discover Singapore Cécile

We were in Singapore for a short stop-over between flights and we are so glad that Anna took us around to show us the main sights. Anna is extremely warm an loving with the kids; she is very knowledgeable and we gained valuable insights on this tour. Thanks Anna! Daksha Govind
Had a great time with Anna and Peter. They made the guests feel very comfortable with the little history of Singapore and funny jokes. Thanks for the time spent with you both.
When we booked the tour we were very specific about what we wanted to see.Anna did not let us down. We thought we knew Singapore well but she continued to surprise us with information and places of interest that we had no idea about.Anna clearly loves showing off her city and has a passion to ensure that her clients enjoy their time. Nothing is too much trouble for her and attention to detail is outstanding. If you want to see the best of Singapore then Anna is the person for you. Thank you Anna.
Anna came to my Hotel prior to the tour start time. The information shared by Anna was wonderful, she understood the requirements of myself and was always accommodating . I learned a lot about the area in which we toured. Anna shared information about food and was great in offering a variety of foods to try.I would recommend a tour with Anna. My tour was of Little India

Deborah MuellerUnited States
We spent a wonderful day touring Singapore with Anna. She met us at our hotel at 9:00 a.m. and the 4 of us enjoyed a private tour experiencing the sights and culture of Singapore until 7:00 p.m. that evening. At that time she arranged with a cab driver to take us to a restaurant we had chosen. Although our scheduled tour time was over she insisted on staying with us until we were safely on our way to the restaurant. She was very informative & fun. A Great Day!
Excellent Tour, Anna is truely passionate about Singapore, very knowledgeable, and tailors the tour to your interests.
Monica Oldenbourg KeckGruenwald, United States
Anna did a good job for us. She loves her city and was also able to give us some background knowledge on history and politics.
Anna was a fabulous guide, knowledgable and fun. She paced the tour perfectly four our 6 hour layover with a mix of history and modern sights. She also took us for excellent street food at one of the Hawker markets which was a real highlight. I would definately book a tour with her again and recommend her!
Martha GillilandUnited States
Anna was just terrific. She was very clear that she welcomed me to comment regularly through our time together on whether I was enjoying what we were doing or not. She was happy to change. In setting up the tour she made sure she understood me and my interests. She encouraged me to "eat local" which I really enjoyed and she made me comfortable. Most importantly, she is extremely knowledgeable. I wanted to learn a lot about the history, culture, education, government and environment of Singapore;
Debra BiloskirkaUnited States
Anna was one of the best tour guides we have ever had! She was very knowledgeable, very pleasant and spunky. We had a long tour with her and enjoyed every minute of it! We definitely would look to use her again on a return trip to Singapore. Great value for the money as well.
Lee I.United States
Anna's English is perfect and her knowledge of Singapore is extensive - no question she could not answer. We not only enjoyed Singapore but enjoyed her as well. Highly recommend her.

Anna was a great tour guide, showing us all the interesting parts of Singapore. We were able to do and see everything we wanted to. Anna planned the tour very well and found us a wonderful driver. We highly recommend her.
Anna was extremely informative, Anna made the tour interesting and took us to variety of wonderful places. Thankyou Anna everyone was pleased and you have teased our senses just enough for us to want to return to Singapore - GREAT TOUR
A friendly, articulate and knowledgable guide.
JoJean JonesUnited States
Anna was professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. We enjoyed our day tour and hated to say goodbye at the Raffles. The Joneses
George was our guide and looked after us-the wet market was not on because it was a Monday tour. Buddha Tooth Relic could have been longer and more explanation of the 5 floors.No show of a traditional chinese medicine shop. Tea ceremony was a highlight and we would have liked being showed some unusual ingredients used in the markets for cooking.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Monica Thank you for your kind feedback! Points noted and George will improve on his communication with guests from now on! Thanks again!
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We are glad to hear that your tour with George went great. In the unusual case where a guide can't personally deliver a tour, the traveler is notified in advance and given the opportunity to cancel or accept the substitute.

Anna took into account all our personal preferences and created an itinerary that not only helped us discover touristic Singapore, but also the city as it is normally seen by the eyes of ordinary residents. She was adjusting the pace based on our needs. She is a great person to travel with. She is not only a great teller, but also is an excellent listener.
We are a group of 10 women who booked a customised tour with Anna. EXCELLENT value. Anna was informative, courteous and excelled herself for our group. Would highly recommend any tour organised with Tours by Locals. Anna improved on our requests and took her duties one step further by offering advice for activities the following day for us minus a guide. Her follow up work for us was very appreciated.
Anna is an efficient and fun guide, we made the best of our time in Singapore with her. She was also kind to advise on matters of interest after our tour. Highly recommended.
Anna was a great guide showing us around china town as well as how to get around singapore.
Anna was very pleasant and went to some lengths to tailor the tour to my request. I had a list of things that I wanted to know (she did not know this) but she answered them all without me having to produce the list! The 5 hours passed so quickly and in fact we run out of time. I am now confident in using the public transport, know how to get value for money when buying food and clothes, and was able to plan things to do for the last 2 days of my visit.I would recommend Anna wanting to know the real S/pore
John Brian HihoAustralia
We did a tour of Singapore with Anna an it was brilliant. Anna showed us around the city for ten hours and her knowledge of Singapore is second to none. She has a vast knowledge of the cities culture, customs and history, and has a bright and bubbly personality. We would not hesitate to give her a 5 rating......Brian and Margaret

Maria Esther CantuMexico
Anna, was great, energetic, enthusiastic and knowledgeable, courteous and friendly. We were a Mexican family traveling, even though we were 10 members, Aki did an excellent job making our visit enjoyable and fun. We felt her as part of our family. We are very much indebted to her for making the tour so successful. We could not have received a better guidance for our a day in such a beautiful city. We would highly recommend Anna. Thank you Anna we had a great time!!
Kate K.United States
Fabulous guide and tour! Just wish I could give more than 5 stars. Anna is wonderfully engaging. The tour of the local markets was amazing and I tried foods I never expected to. Anna was totally flexible in matching our interests with the ever changing weather.
Anna is very enthusiastic and adapted well to our family of 5 to make it interesting for all of us. we have been to Singapore a few times before but still learned a lot from Anna.
Norman BlakeUnited States
Anna was very knowledgeable and is a lovely woman. She asked to be contacted by text instead of e-mail prior to our tour and texting didn't work so we couldn't plan the day before seeing her. She spent more time showing us food in Chinatown than was desirable as we only had a short time in Singapore to see the main sights. She did accommodate our desire to take a river cruise and couldn't have been more pleasant in her demeanor. I would recommend her to others.
Anna was very professional and friendly. She made me feel very welcome and freely offered additional assistance with things to do and place to eat outside of the tour date. I really enjoyed the tour which was tailored for the short time that I was able to spend and felt that by the end I had seen a good cross section of things in Singapore. I got a sense of the cultural spectrum, different religions, some of the history and also got to try some cuisine. All in all it was time and money well spent. Thanks
Anna was most informative and very helpful with all the questions we asked. Our transport was very very comfortable.Anna was very experienced in the operations of Singapore Zoo,which is one our very favourite places in Singapore. We enjoyed the experience of learning about the housing available to the people of Singapore. Our only comment is that 6 hours is not long enough to experience the delights of Singapore.
Anna gave us a good overview of Singapore. She was knowledgeable and pleasant and steered us to a wonderful lunch of Singapore Chili Crab which we still talk about!.
Ronald KolkerUnited States
My wife and I were in Singapore for 3+ days in Jan '12. We utilized Anna as our tour guide on our first full day. She made our entire stay so very memorable because we visited all sections of the city with her on that day. It was obvious that she wanted to share her wonderful city with us. She was well informed, vivacious, and energetic. We would not hesitate in recommending her, and ToursByLocals, to anyone visiting Singapore.
Brian K.United States
Anna is a wonderful tour guide, I thoroughly enjoyed my time in her company, and would have no hesitation in recommending her services to anyone.
