Wow. What a great site and what a great tour!! Edwin was a superb host who gave us a day to remember. Such a pleasant guy, with a wealth of knowledge, delivered in such a pleasing way. I would highly recommend to anyone. There is no way we would have seen all that, without Edwin's guidance, and all in 4 hours! The easy way the driver dropped us off and picked us up, in fantastic, air conditioned transport. It was not rushed, but we saw so much. What an experience. Thank you Edwin.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: And thank you for giving me the opportunity to play host during your holiday in Singapore!

We engaged Edwin for his professional Heritage tour of Singapore especially on World War 2, he has not only exceed our expectation, but his knowledge has also captured the attention of my clients (all 40 of them, including kids) Mind you, we are all Singaporeans living in Singapore, and we are all, is awe of his professional tour. He has brought us to the past and back to the present of Singapore. His knowledge of history covers further than Singapore. His passion has also ignite us to serve better! Kudos

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your many kind words, Kelvin. Really appreciate that! It was really FUN for me too. Each of my tours is not just another assignment. It is an extension of what I love doing, and that is to delight and entertain my clients with facts about the places they are visiting.

My parents and I thoroughly enjoyed the history tour that we did with Edwin at the weekend. Edwin and the driver arrived promptly, and Edwin was very professional and engaged throughout. In terms of itinerary, all of the stops were very interesting. Edwin was friendly and happy to answer questions regarding the tour or about Singapore in general. The transport was very clean with good air con. I would highly recommend this tour for people interested in the history of Singapore. Thank you Edwin!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Alice. I could tell your dad and you are history buffs so didnt want to rush both of you. Glad you all had a great time.

Edwin loves Singapore and provided us with an excellient fast paced adventure on what life is like for "a local" as well as introduced us to the destinctive cultural blend of this City State. Highly organized and knowledgeable, Edwin made sure we saw the City at our own pace all the while insuring we saw a well curated sampling of the City. We feel we saw the best of yesterday, today and tomorrow --and of course ate to much.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Ron. I had fun showing both of you around! Like your sense of humour!

Edwin's passion for Singapore is something to behold. From its Hawker Halls to its Town Halls, Edwin wants to show and explain as much about Singapore life and history as he can or as time permits. Obviously Edwin is a very professional tour guide who also has a warm and friendly personality. He and his driver work seamlessly. Edwin's Singapore City Tour was a good investment in a valuable Singapore experience, especially for a novice who wishes to get to know Singapore quickly.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow! Thank you! Happy to play my part to help put Singapore on the Top Five list!

We took my parents to Singapore as a birthday present for my mother. I organised with Edwin (via the website, emails and in person on the day) to take my elderly parents on a day tour of touristy things that hubby and I didn't want to do as we have been to Singapore many times. They thought he was lovely and very very knowledgeable. They said no question was too much. Everything was organised perfectly - nice safe van to carry them around and Edwin also pushed dad's wheelchair all day. Brilliant.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Pleasure is mine! And thank you for your compliments. :-)

Edwin did an outstanding job providing us with a detailed examination of the sad history of Singapore's fall to Imperial Japan. His knowledge of the history is impressive. The Battle Box and the war graves were particularly poignant. The van and driver he provided were excellent as was the delicious chicken and rice lunch. We couldn't have hoped for a better day. Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the compliments! Had a great time showing both of you around!

We only had a long layover in Singapore available to us but obviously wanted to see as much as possible from this exciting city! Luckly we got Edwin as our guide. He prepared a tailored 4 hour walking tour for us (using public transport we managed to cover large parts of the city). He was incredibly knowledgable about his home town and could basically tell you a story and background information on everything we came across during the tour! We had a great time and can absolutly recommend Edwin. Thank you!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your compliments, Sebastian. I had lots of fun bringing you and your friends around! Am happy that all of you had fun!

Edwin, you are a very amazing and kind guide for my family to the important places. We admire your wonderful guide to the various kinds of temples and mosques we never experienced without you. You are the best of all the guides we met in other countries. We'd like to see you again to know more aspects in the modern life in Singapore.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, once again, for the opportunity to be of service to you and your family. It was truly a pleasure showing all of you around the various places of worship in Singapore.

Edwin, you are a very amazing and kind Battlefields guide for my family to the important places during the WW II. Thank you very much indeed for your thorough and well-cultivated knowledge about the wars between Japan and British in Malay and Singapore based on the neutral point of view for both the countries. You are the best of all the guides we met in other countries. We'd like to see you again to know more aspects in the modern life in Singapore.

Edwin is an excellent guide! He is knowledgeable about Singapore's history, people, traditions and attractions. He hired a car and driver for us and the car was very nice with plenty of space. We especially liked the PA system which was just right and very helpful. We had an extra couple of days after the tour and Edwin was very helpful to us for planning other activities. I strongly recommend a tour with Edwin!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind compliments, Roger.

Edwin Lim is by far the best tour guide we've ever had, and we have had many. He made our visit to Singapore one that we will never forget. He provided extensive information on Singapore history ,diverse cultures and contemporary life. He gave linguistic lessons, cooking lessons and gardening tips , all with a smile and a great sense of humor. He also was a great photographer with an eye for art. The most difficult thing for us to do was to say goodbye.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am blushing already, from the generous compliments you have given me! I had a lot of fun showing both of you around town! Thank you for the opportunity and the experience as much as I am glad to have given you a great Singapore experience!

This tour was delightful. We were picked up at the cruise port and taken on a 10 hour tour of Singapore before we had to go to the airport. We were able to see a lot and learn about Singapore as well as to be able to enjoy the beauty the city has to offer. Our guide was attentive and concerned with our needs. The driver was efficient and knew where she was going. We were very happy with our tour and experience in Singapore.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Am glad that you gave me the opportunity to create a great Singapore experience for both of you! :-)
