On the way to Singapore, I became ill. The next morning Jon demonstrates why we like Tours by Locals. I called Jon with the request. By the time he picked us up he had found a doctor's clinic and set an appointment for me. We were out of the doctors office with prescription medicine in less than 90 minutes from first phone call to taking the medicine His knowledge as a tour guide was also excellent; informative, humerous and genuine. Thankyou.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kent, So glad you are feeling better . Have a wonderful trip ! Hope to see you again

Jon is a first grade tour guide! I hired him to take my parents in 5-hr private tour with transportation. I knew that he picked up my parents a bit late, but he has since made up for it by taking pics for my mom & dad using his camera/phone- my mom's phone was out of memory; he even made a nice little video. I think only 1 point of attraction was missed due to out of time?? Jon is polite & quick to respond to emails/chats, which is a plus because I am >9,000 miles away. Would recommend. Thanks again, Jon!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Meike , thank you for your kind understanding and response . Take care and hope to see you in Singapore soon

John was the perfect tour guide. He met us at the airport and we spent the next 4hours together. John put together a lovely, informative tour and he added a surprise stop geared to our kids. He made sure we got settled into our apartment and guided us locally for lunch. We feel like we have made a friend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Laurie, Indeed you have a Friend in Singapore , you are always welcome here. Please take good care of yourself

Weibin was my tour guide. For only a three hour tour, it sure went fast. He knew a lot of informtation about the area around my hotel, the Fullerton, he made good sense of the MTR which to me seemed like a plate of spaghetti, and Little India, in spite of the smell of curry every where (it is a little sharp to my nose), was enjoyable and interesting. When he aked if I wanted to try some of the curry, I replied 'no thanks', I did that once and will never do it again. I would recommend you all again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Larry, Thank you for giving me a chance to show you around . We had enjoyable especially when we enjoyed local coffee which we call it Kopi - o Gao kosong local meaning strong black coffee without sugar . Please take care of yourself and hope we will meet again.

Jon was a Great tour guide. His knowledge of the history and cultural of Singapore was very impressive. He picked me up earlier than the tour was scheduled to start and gave me more time than it was scheduled for. Showed me in detail everything I wanted to see. It was definitely worth the money.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Doug. It was my honour and glad that you have enjoyed yourself. Please take care.

Jon was the perfect guide. Punctual, knowledgeable, articulate and flexible; ready, willing and able to adjust to our agenda. We covered a lot of ground in the 3-hour tour, were fully informed along the way and he went out of the way to ensure our experience viewing the Super Tree light show and harbour laser show was from the best vantage points. Would recommend him highly.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sean and Philip, It is my honour and privilege to meet both of you . Hope you had a wonderful time in Bali !
