Carol GarfieldUnited States
There aren't enough words to describe how pleased we were with Phil on every level. He was punctual, clean, neat, tireless and considerate. His English was excellent and he had the most pleasant, friendly demeanour. As we had a lot of hours to spend with Phil he made it a point to not only show us the most important sights in Singapore but some of the more obscure sights as well. He studied hard as he was able to inform us about history, politics and architecture etc., and he made it all interesting.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Carol, thank you very much for the very kind words. It was a real pleasure spending 2 days with you and the fishers and I’m glad all of you had a great time here! A big thank you from the bottom of my heart for writing such a lovely review :)
Harvey FeldmanUnited States
We are so pleased that we happened to pick Phil to show us Singapore. In addition to arranging for us to visit the synagogue, which was one of our requests, he took us to many other interesting and notable sites in our 6 hour tour. We were not rushed; he allowed us as much time as we wished at each site. He speaks English extremely well and is very knowledgeable about Singapore, past and present. We give him our highest recommendation!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Harvey, thanks for choosing to spend the day with me! I'm glad you and your wife enjoyed the day with me and i had a wonderful time as well! Have a safe flight home later and remember to try the Blueberry juice on Finnair! :D

Singapore is truly a special place, and Phil was able to share these facts with us. He also suggested the perfect hotel for us for our early morning plane.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ann, i'm glad you enjoyed Singapore and that the hotel was a great fit! Thank you and it was a pleasure spending the day with you! :)

If there is a rating number higher than 5, it is how we would rate Philip. In 4 1/2 hours with him in Singapore, we saw and learned more about this city than we could ever have imagined. His demeanor and his knowledge made the afternoon everything we could have hoped for. We give him at least a 10!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ronald, thank you so much for the kind words! I had such a wonderful time with your group and am glad you enjoyed the tour as much as I did. Have a lovely time on the cruise around Southeast Asia and the Monet exhibition tomorrow! :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David! :)
Robin WarrenUnited States
Phil was one of the best tour guides we have ever had the pleasure of spending a day with. He was friendly, outgoing, and most importantly knowledgeable in every area of Singapore history. We signed up for the Jewish Tour which included a visit to the working Synagogue and the Jewish history of Singapore. With the flexibility of our wonderful tour operator we did also encompass part of the Crazy Rich Asian Tour which was fun and exciting to me since I had read all 3 books. BEST excursion and guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robin and Gary, thanks for the amazing review! It was really fun sharing with you Singapore and especially about CRAs. Going golf ball hunting is a first and I’ll definitely remember you guys. Thank you :)
Bernie GoldMelbourne, VIC, Australia
Very enjoyable tour.. Guide was very informative and considerate of the fact there were two young children. Would highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Suzie! It was really nice meeting you and your daughter and grandkids! Always a joy meeting Melbournians and thanks for sharing about the Jewish community in Melbourne. :)
Arnold W.United States
Our time spent with Phil made our Jewish-experience extremely memorable. He is probably the best guide we have ever had.. He toured us through the area that was previously the Jewish Quarter. He took us to an active synagogue where we talked to some congregants who were purchasing kosher foods for the Passover holiday. The staff was very embracing. He showed us many different neighborhoods along the was and we stopped for coffee and Ben and Jerry's ice cream at a local spot. Don't miss Phil!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Arnie for the very kind comments! I had a wonderful morning with you guys and thanks for sharing with me about passover! I went home and read all about it :)
