My parents could not stop saying all kind of good things about Daniel after the fantastic tour with Daniel. They had their best time in Singapore with Daniel(even better than the days I had planned for so long time for them). I really do feel grateful for Daniel. He is not only an absolutely amazing guide, but also one of the kindest person my parents ever met. Daniel showed my parents the lovely city Singapore from local point of view, and made my parents fall in love with the gorgeous garden city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mary, Thank you very much for the kind words. Your parents are a wondeful couple to spend time with and I enjoyed myself. It is like bringing my own uncle and auntie out for a tour. :) Best regards Daniel
Daniel is the guide to be with if you are in Singapore! He had great stories behind allot of stuff he saw even small things or foods we would come across on the markets or elsewhere. Food tasting was excellent and it was nice being able to drive around in a air conditioned car. Strongly recommended if you are planning to take a guided tour in Singapore!
Elizabeth JatczakUnited States
We had a great day with Daniel! He took us to a Hauka and bought us traditional foodies to taste. We went to an amazing temple! Kampung glam was amazing! We saw all the sights and transported in an air conditioned van. Fantastic day with a great guy! Highly recommend!

Keith E.Jackson, TN, United States
Excellent tour with Daniel! He is very friendly and open. From the beginning, he is very good about exchanging information on Singapore from both a historical and current perspective. The tour is quite fun on the bikes and very educational. Please make note that Daniel feeds you traditional foods from 2 separate public markets so be prepared to eat
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Keith, Thank you for your kind words and I am so happy to be able to spend the morning on the bike with both of you. :) Am even happier that both of you are open to try foods which I placed in front of you. That's life in Singapore, exercise a bit followed by eating.. Continue to enjoy your stay and may we meet again one day. Stay happy always. :) Daniel
Paul McCollamUnited States
Daniel provided a wonderful tour for my wife and I. Prior to the tour he kept in contact with several emails. He met us at our hotel at the arranged time, then conducted our tour in a professional and informative manner, taking time to answer all of our questions. He even provided food samples at various locations, even declining my offer to pay. All in all he provided exactly the type of tour we were seeking. The visit to his friends flat was the highlight of the tour. Shoud give him 7 stars.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Paul, Kuan says hi and he told me that he enjoyed having both of you at his place. :) Thank you also for being very wonderful people to spend time with, I appreciate your company. Also, I learn things from both of you. :) Till we see each other again, I wish both of you lots of happiness everyday. :) Daniel

Sharan S.United States
We had a marvelous day with Daniel. We are a group of six seasoned travelers who have been to Singapore many times. Daniel's tour featuring the local life showed us a Singapore we had never before seen. Visiting the model apartments at the government housing office was an unique opportunity for us. The food Daniel provided along the way was wonderful. He selected several dishes for us to try at the hawkers center and we want to go back again. Daniel tailored the day to suit our needs perfectly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sharan, Please say a big hi to everyone else and I remember that nice day spent with everyone. :) I am very happy to know that all of you enjoyed yourself and thank for being nice sports to try things I put in front of you all. :) Till I see everyone again, please take care and may everyday be a happy one for you. :) Daniel
Wow!! Daniel was an awesome Tour guide!! 2 days, went to so many places! My mum is elderly, he really looked after her, helped us push her wheelchair, made sure he drove to us so we didn't have to walk to him, was punctual all the time, super organised, so easy going and great to get along with, English was superb, funny and extremely knowledgeable, had many suggestions for us to go to, he even went over time by almost 2 hours and wasn't too fussed! Great conversationalist, please book him, you'll be glad
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My dear Veronica, All of you have been great company and it is my pleasure to spend time with everyone. :) I still remember all the happy moments we ate together, walked around. All of you will always be on my mind. :) Please say hi to your Mum and Adrian. May we meet again one day and I wish that all of you will always have lots of things to make you smile. :) Best regards Daniel
David ThompsonUnited States
Wonderfull experience despite the early evening downpour and thanks to Daniel's enthusiasm. What a nice person and so informative about Singaporean history, cultures and ethnicities. He is also a "foodie" exposing us to a chinese hawker food court in the eastern suburbs.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David, I am so thankful that both of you can still enjoy the various items we set out to do and I had such a nice time spending with you. Very nice warm company both of you have provided me. Till we meet again, may you have lots of happiness and good health. :) Best regards Daniel
John DiddamsUnited States
Daniel gave us an outstanding tour of Singapore at night starting with a delicious multicultural dinner of street food at a night market, followed by the garden light show and the water show at Marina Bay Sands. Between these memorable events we walked and drove by historic and significant sights with Daniel's excellent commentary and knowledge making the city come alive. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear John, Thank you for a lovely evening together with Rosa. :) I enjoyed myself very much with both of you and very happy that both of you enjoyed the food as I am a foodie myself. :) Till we see each other again, I wish both of you good health and lots of happiness in 2018. :) Daniel

Jennifer SmithUnited States
This evening tour was great. It was much more informative than I anticipated, in addition to being fun. Daniel is a super tour guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Woo hoo, thank you Jennifer for the kind review. It is my pleasure to spend the evening with you, eating and walking around. Thank you for being a great listener to my stories. :) Best wishes to you always, Daniel :)
Susan KupermanUnited States
After a wonderful evening with Daniel,we booked him for a tour the next day. We walked drove and ate all over Singapore. We visited four different cultures that are able to coexist in peace. It was amazing to see the differences in each area we went to. Daniel was great in explaining all of the cultures and feeding us everywhere. I wish I could give Daniel more than 5 stars he was wonderful.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Now I know I will miss each one of you as I read this. I guess, you ladies will be cruising in the sea as I write this. I always feel that all my guests brought me different experience when I spend time with them. Susan, please let everyone know that I had a wonderful time bringing all you ladies around and it has been great as I hear you share your views on way of life etc. May we see each other one day and best wishes to everyone of you, always. :) Enjoy your holidays. :) Daniel
Susan KupermanUnited States
Daniel is fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed our tours with him. We booked him for an evening tour. We went to see the water and light show. He took us to a local hawkers area where he bought us a wonderful dinner. He bought so much food we couldn't finish it, he wanted to make sure we tasted everything. I highly recommend Daniel if you going to be in Singapore.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan, Heh.. I wish I could have let all of you try more last night. :) Those are foods which my friends and family will enjoy as well. :) I enjoyed the lovely evening walk with everyone and chatting with all of you. Best regards Daniel
Lawrence SnetmanMiami, FL, United States
We toured Singapore with Daniel, and he provided one of the best tours we have ever taken. He was prompt, personable, funny and informative. He took us not only to the must see places, but off the beaten path to sample local culture and delicacies not usually seen by tourists. His historical knowledge was likewise quite valuable. We would recommend him highly without hesitation..
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Larry, Please say hi to Liliana too. :) Thank you for this prompt feedback and it was a very wonderful experience to spend time with both of you. Both of you are really adventurous in trying out things which make the tour very enriching. :) I wish you both all the best and continue to have a great time for the rest of your holidays and may we see each other some day. :) Take care, Daniel
June KailesUnited States
Daniel was outstanding! He was knowledgeable, pleasant and very helpful. We enjoy seeing and understanding how people live and were drawn to his tour. With information along the way we went into a "wet market" where locals buy their food from individual stalls; fruit, produce, seafood, condiments, etc. Aside from visiting the government flat, very enjoyable, we also saw and walked several neighborhoods and got a real feel how locals live. This tour exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear June and Bob :) It is so nice to bring both of you around and I had a nice time understanding how eldercare works at your end too. I hope that we will meet again in a year or two when you are back as there are so many other things which I can share with you. :) Take care and best wishes always Daniel
Daniel is a very friendly, knowledgeable local who went out of his way to show us what we wanted to see. His Singapore! We have done all the touristy things before, so this was a refreshing change. Daniel picked us up and drove us around himself and was very attentive to our needs and wishes. We got even more from the tour than what we expected. We would highly recommend this tour and Daniel if you want to see the real Singapore. Thanks!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My dear Lynn, thank you very much for your feedback and it was a great pleasure spending time with both of you. I enjoy bringing my friends around my city and that would be both of you, for being such nice people to be with. :) Take care and may we see each other one day soon. :) Best wishes always. :) Daniel
Keith D'ArcyUnited Kingdom
Well what can we say! An absolute fantastic experience with Daniel from start to finish. Communication with Daniel weeks before our tour and agreeing our 2 day customised itinerary went very well and was very timely. However, the 2 days that we actually spent with Daniel showed what a perfect host he is with his knowledge and passion for his country Singapore. Thank you Daniel.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My dear Keith and Sue, Thank you very much for the wonderful review and also for being such a nice couple to spend time with. I enjoyed myself when I was with both of you. I hope that one day, we will cross path again and I can be of service to both of you again. :) Best regards and lots of best wishes to both of you. Daniel
I recommend! :D Daniel is a great guide and he can choose a really great indie tour plan. He knows the city very well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dawid, May we meet again one day and I shall be able to bring you to other parts of Singapore to visit. Don't overwork at home ya. :) Best regards Daniel
Amy SerranoUnited States
We spent a wonderful day with Daniel, visiting interesting neighborhoods, seeing amazing sights, learning about Singapore history, getting a sense of how local people live, and sampling many regional foods. He customized the tour to match our interests, taking us to the Singapore City Gallery even though it wasn't part of our original itinerary. He did a great job accommodating a disability, making the day extra comfortable for us. We highly recommend this tour guide! Amy and Roberto, Rhode Island, US
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Amy and Roberto, Both of you have the sunshine aura in you that makes my day when I was with you on the tour. Thank you for your vote of confidence and it is my pleasure to bring you to places which is important for you to enjoy your visit to my country. May we meet again one day and have a great holiday. :) Best regards Daniel
very knowledgeable & friendly guide, highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tom, Thank you for the nice company yesterday on the bike and may we meet each other one day. :) Enjoy the rest of your holidays and the celebrations. :) Best regards Daniel
Daniel was a great guide. He showed us around the city taking extra time. I would rate him 5/5. I would highly recommend him to anyone in the future.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rabindra, Thank you very much for the review and I had such a nice time bringing your parents around. They are such a nice couple to spend time with. Looking forward to seeing you soon. :) Best regards Daniel
Sergey FilatovUnited States
Danil's service was great from the first email I sent to the end of our tour. He is responsive to emails and it is very easy to communicate. He always was prompt and planned our itinerary very good. Our first day tour was pretty standard, but for the second day I asked him to create itinerary by himself. He did an excellent job. Our group feel that he treated us as a family, going extra mile to satisfy our requests. He has extensive knowledge of the history and cultural. Excellent! Lana and group.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lana and Sergey, Thank you very much for the kind review and I had such a nice wonderful time with the whole group. You guys are so fun and I remember the laughter as we tour together. I am very happy to have known all of you and all of you made my day during that tour. I do hope that one day we shall meet again and until then, may all of you have lots of happy days to celebrate and have lots of things to make you smile. :) Daniel
Charlie WainwrightUnited Kingdom
Daniel has a great approach to introducing people to his city. He has interesting and extensive knowledge of the history and cultural development of this magnificent city. Combine that knowledge with visits to the best hawker food market stalls and you will have a great time with him. Great bloke, great tour, great food !!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Charlie, It was a great day spent with you and Julie. Both of you are such wonderful people to be with. :) Thank you so much for your review and I am so happy you like what I have put together for both of you. Till we meet again some day, I will always wish you lots of happiness and great health. Best regards Daniel
Joseph ThompsonUnited States
Simply a fantastic tour. Daniel is so enthusiastic and energetic, and knows the various neighborhoods of Singapore extremely well! We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with him from start to finish, and experienced some great Hawker food along the way! We just could not have asked for a better local guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joseph, I felt like spending time with my dear friends when I was with both of you. It was such a nice time and I am happy that you guys had a nice time. Hope we will see each other one day. May you have lots of fun for the rest of your tour. big hugs. :)

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comments, Nhan. Continue to enjoy your holidays and have a blast! :) I had a very nice evening tour with you that night. :)
Alice BickleinUnited States
We loved this tour. It was a great way to spend part of the day after the ship docked and our flight was not till midnight. Walking in the historic neighborhood, visiting the Muslim market, eating at "328 Katong Laksa", having local coffee at a Singaporean Food Court, visiting a Singaporean apartment building, and much more. Daniel was a most generous guide, providing us with a memorable experience of Singapore way of life. I felt like I got to see what it is like to live there. Alice
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alice, it is so nice to hear from you and thank you for your comments. It was just such an enjoyable day to be with both of you. Also, happy to be able to see you part of Singapore life. Feel free to contact me when you are back next time on your own should you need any information. :) Till I see both of you again, take care. :)
Highly motivated local tour guide! Excellent tour that shown us the best places to be and eat. We heard so much information about Singapore and experienced it behind the scenes. Very good driver, we felt safe and secure. Very good choice!!! Highly recommendable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tobias, thank you very much for your wonderful feedback and review. :) You know you are welcome to contact me while you are still in Singapore should you need any assistance. I hope to see you guys with your family one day and we can all go out together. :) Take care Daniel :)
Gus SimonUnited Kingdom
Where do I start! Well firstly I'd like to thank Daniel for being an excellent tour guide! We learnt heaps about Singapore, the culture, the food and where Singapore is heading for the future. Visiting future housing alongside restaurants and street food vendors. The food was superb. From a Hawker breakfast to a Hainanese chicken late lunch! DO NOT BOOK THIS TOUR IF YOU HAVE A SMALL APPETITE. As a foodie, I was left in a food coma after breakfast! Which was annoying as I had no room for a wonderful Laksa.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My dear Gus, Heh.. Thank you very much for the nice words. As I was telling you guys that part of knowing a country's culture will be through the food. I had such a nice time with the three of you, it was enjoyable moving around with you guys, so spontaneous and wonderful. :) Come back again and I shall bring you to try other stuff, how about seafood at an offshore island? :) Take care and hope to see you all one day. Daniel
Bronwyn TurnerNew Zealand
We spent the morning with the delightful Daniel . This informative & interesting tour of Chinatown & beyond gave us a wonderful insight to the history & culture of this fascinating part of Singapore. Daniel was great with our 3 boys - kind & patient. He was a flexible , friendly ,helpful & knowledgeable guide . I have no hesitation recommending either Daniel or this tour .
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow...Thank you very much for your comment, Bronwyn. I had a nice time spent with you, Richard and the boys. They are wonderful children and I am happy for you guys to have them surrounding you. :) May you continue to have a great holiday and till our path cross again, take care. :) Daniel
David MooreUnited Kingdom
Excellent 'Our Singapore Way of Life' tour by Daniel. He went well beyond what we expected in the quality of both the food and lifestyle experiences that he showed us, and in the manner in which he portrayed the way of life here. Could not rate highly enough! Well done Daniel.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David, I am so happy that I have given you a great impression of my country. :) I had a great time chatting with you and Janice along the tour too. Please say hi to Janice :) The next time you guys are back in Singapore, I hope to show you other aspects of this city. Till we meet again, please take care and continue to have fun. :) Daniel
Ben JenkinsUnit 1, IL, United States
Fantastic tour! Daniel is great and the tour is very well planned. It was great to see another side of Singapore and the food was delicious. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ben, Thank you for being such wonderful guests to spend time with and I enjoyed myself a lot. I hope I would be able to show you more sights in Singapore when you visit again.:) Till we see each other again, take care. :) Daniel
Michele DussaultUnited States
If I could give Daniel a 10 star rating I would. Daniel went above and beyond to make my visit to Singapore as best as it could be under the circumstances. I arrived sick and was willing to cancel my tour, but Daniel couldn't be deterred despite my numerous pleas. He instead provided the nurturing needed to allow me to continue onto my next flight 6 hrs later. I highly recommend the tour that includes a visit to the Government Housing where I was greeted by Kwan and welcomed with medicinal tea.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Micky, When you finally wrote to me that you are feeling good and safe, I was so happy. I am happy that I am able to make you feel good again for your next flight and the work you are doing is also great. I admire the things you have done. Thank you very much for your kind words once again and yes, I am waiting for you to come back again, so that I can show you places when you are bright and well. Take care my dear. Daniel
Man Fung HonAustralia
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ivan, Thank you very much for your rating and I had a great time spent with you. May you have a great time back home and see you back in Singapore again soon. :) Best regards Daniel
A wonderfully comprehensive and detailed introduction to the historical evolution of Singapore by Daniel our tour guide. It was a very fully packed day that left us with a much better understanding of Singapore's development from colony to nation state and the significance of the various ethnic backgrounds of its people. We could not have asked for more. Our only regret was that Daniel was booked by others for the second day of our stay in Singapore, otherwise we would have spent a second day with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Donna and Frank, Thank you very much for your feedback and rating. It is my privilege to bring both of you around and I enjoyed my time with both of you very much. :) It was great company both of you have provided too. I hope to be able to see both of you one day soon and in the meantime, take care of yourselves. :) Best regards Daniel
Frank TallaricoUnited States
This tour was the highlight of our 3 week trip to SE Asia. Daniel is absolutely wonderful. As he said to us, it was just as if we had a friend taking us around and showing us his City. We tried food we may not have felt comfortable trying on our own, saw so much of the City, and it was so great to have a local to talk to about the culture. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Frank, Thank you for the wonderful comment and it just made my day. :) You guys have been great company to be with, when I brought you around and it is my pleasure to spend time with you. I hope that we will meet one day and I can show you other parts of Singapore. :) Best regards Daniel
Christine JonesWallis and Futuna
Excellent English spoken by Daniel. Extremely well informed on history lots ofoval insites to Singaporean history culture and food. Would certain recommend Daniel and when back here will contact again for further tours
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Christine, I had such a nice time bringing both you and David around. :) It was a nice day spent with both of you. Thank you for clarifying via email that you had provided a rating of 5 for me instead of 3. I appreciate you doing that and I look forward to serve both of you again when you are back in Singapore. :) In the meantime, take of yourselves and see you soon :) Best regards Daniel
Courtenay H.United States
Daniel gave us a wonderful tour of several local communities in Singapore. We learned a lot about the neighborhoods that we visited - the history and culture of the people and the architecture of each area. We sampled a variety of foods at each of our stops. Daniel is very knowledgeable, easy to talk to and prompt. He guided us with ease through every part of our excursion.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Courtenay, I had a nice time with you and Mo. It was a great experience for me to be with both of you. Thank you for your kind words and I look forward to seeing both go you again soon. Best regards Daniel
Daniel is a superb guide. Extremely knowledgeable about Singapore's history, culture and architecture he provides very interesting insights and information in a genuinely enthusiastic manner. We especially appreciated his selections of local foods to sample in the Malay district and at a Hawker Centre. He was also flexible in adding elements to the tour based on our interests. Daniel is at the top of the list of tour guides our family has used in many cities around the world - we highly recommend him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David, Thank you very much for your kind words and I had such a great time bringing you and your family around Singapore. Please send my regards to everyone at home. :) Today, I went for a biking trail with a few friends to Pulau Ubin, an offshore island with a great biking route, enjoyed a local seafood meal, before heading back to Singapore. We can do that the next time you are back in Singapore. :) Best wishes to all of you always Daniel
Neil EmersonUnited States
Great day with Daniel , went above and beyond . Adapted to our needs. Well worth the $ .
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Neil, Thank you very much for your compliments and I had such a nice wonderful time spent with both of you. Hope to see you both one day soon. Best regards Daniel
Daniel was excellent as a guide & thoroughly enjoyed his company. As we had been to Singapore once before we asked him to customise the Singapore way of Life tour for when we stopped for a day on a Cruise. Daniel did an excellent job showing things we hadn't seen before& having back on time for the ship. Just wish we didn't eat the day before to fit in all of the food that we ate & could of eaten. All tasted awesome. Anytime in Singapore we will look Daniel up.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bryan, Thank you very much for your kind review and I had a great time visiting Singapore with you and Yvonne too. :) I would be more than happy to bring you both on another programme when you are back in Singapore again. Take care and hope to see you guys soon. :) Best regards Daniel
