Phil is a tremendous tour guide and I highly recommend his tours. I have done this tour twice, each time with different visitors to Singapore who wanted to try the hawker stands. Everyone loved it. Phil tailored it to our requirements (e.g., vegetarian only one time) and both times were fantastic. This is the way to truly immerse yourself in the Singapore food scene.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mary Jo! It was so much fun bringing you and your family members around and thanks for being so adventurous and loving our local food! If we meet again for the third time I want to make sure there is something new for you to try! :) Thanks for being such a good sport always!

Phil was great! He was flexible and attentive to our wishes, and we really enjoyed this combination of sightseeing tour and foodie tour. Phil emailed me after the tour with foodie suggestions and we're looking forward to trying a few restaurants on his list during our week here. Thanks so much, Phil!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Candice, i'm glad you and your lovely parents enjoyed the tour! i'm glad your mom found the things she wants to buy here and left happy! :) Hope the restaurant recommendations were good and have a wonderful time on the ship!

Phil is absolutely wonderful, and we recommend him without reservation. He took us to multiple small Singaporean food outlets, including hawker stands and tiny restaurants with just a few small tables. Phil was great about using his years of experience to find us somewhere to sit, and then went and got food from the various stands for us. In between bouts of eating, we went to various famous Singapore landmarks. Phil was knowledgeable, prepared, and a consummate professional.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Don! I'm glad you and your family enjoyed the food selections and had a great day on our national day! :) Hope to see you again in Singapore and I will have more food tricks up my sleeves! :)

We had an excellent night & day tour with Phil. He's very knowledgeable about Singapore's history and sights, plus we ate a lot of delicious food from local restaurants and hawkers centers. I highly recommend him if you're visiting Singapore for the first time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Margaret and Frank! It was really wonderful meeting the both of you :)

Mike SmithSouth Africa
Phi is a charming young man who knows his subject very well. He is proud of being Singaporean and this shows in his approach to his guests (us). He chopped and changed aspects of our tours according to our needs, and showed us parts of beautiful Singapore that we hadn't seen before. And we really enjoyed his choices of foods for us. We will call on Phil again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mike! It has been a real pleasure! Glad you enjoyed our dinning choices!:)
Shirley S.United Kingdom
This was a combination of a night zoo tour and a food tour. Phil was brilliant at getting us to the front of the crazy queues at the zoo but his real skill is selecting places to try the wide selection of local foods! Great local restaurant, far away from the tourist trail, was brilliant. You have to get Phil to take you to the chocolate croissant shop too. It has great coffee as well. If you're a bit of a foodie, Phil is the person you need to book.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Shirley, i am not sure why this feedback did not appear for my approval back in March but thank you so much for the amazing comments! Thanks for coming back to book a tour with me and for being my first tourist from Monaco and sharing with me so much about your country! Hope to see you again back in Singapore! :D I'm glad you enjoyed the croissant! :D
A most enjoyable tour with a very knowledgable guide. Phil was enthusiastic about food and also Singapore in general. He tailored the tour for us, taking into account the places that we had already visited and our plans for the rest of our stay. We were well fed for $10 for the two of us - amazing.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Linda! You and Lorraine were amazing! I had a wonderful time :)
David BaumUnited States
Phil was simply wonderful. He was punctual, extremely pleasant, informed and led a great tour. We saw sights and tried foods we would have never known to try or found without his expert guidance. We love tours by locals fo the very same reason that we love Phil. He adores his country and cannot help but share his unbridled enthusiasm with his guests. We'd love to package him and his enthusiasm and take him all around the world to guide us. He is simply tops!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David! You and Rocky were absolutely amazing and enjoyable to hang out with! Really enjoyed the few hours we shared together and i hope you will continue to have amazing experiences on our site!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you:)
Phil as a fantastic host! He kept in contact before the event, arrived on time and was very knowledgable on his subject. Phil was entertaining, thoughtful and I would definitely recommend one of his food tours. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the evening and food, once again Phil assisted in co-ordinating the food, drinks and was an excellent go-between, between us and food hawkers. Highly recommend Phil.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the review! I had an amazing time with the group :)
Linda DahlUnited States

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Linda :)
Maribel RodriguezUnited States
The guide Phil , was extremely cooperative and professional.The tour could have had more variety and show better the diversity of the food experience in Singapore.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Maribel for your response! I apologise that after having food at local hawker centres, chilli crabs and other dishes at Jumbo seafood restaurant and local coffee and pastries at a cafe that you feel that there has not been enough variety. :( There is also limitation to the amount of places we could visit due to some places not being walking trolley friendly as you wanted minimal walking. I will improve on that for my other tourists and i thank you once again for your valuable feedback!
