Hj is punctual, extremely well-organized and effective. As first time visitors to Singapore, we were able to visit Sentosa Island, view greater Singapore from the 50th story of a public housing skyscraper, tour Kampong Glam with its beautiful mosque and the Indian district with its Hindu temples, visit the super trees at Marina Bay, hear musicians perform in the durian shaped concert hall building, see the old and new Supreme Court buildings, tour several museum exhibits, and lunch on crab in Chinatown!

HJ is a wonderful guide. He is very passionate and knowledgable about his city of Singapore and give us a wonderful overview. It was a big advantage to have the air conditioned car in the heat of the city and he managed to find parking in the tightest spaces! We saw Chinatown (with the added attractions of Chinese New Year) the Muslim area, and the Marina Bay Area to have a photo with the Merilion He also give us a wonderful 360 degree aerial view from the sky walk He is a great guide !

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Ann for your review. I really appreciate it. All the best to you and your loved ones!! Cheers :)

Hj N. picked us up promptly at our scheduled time. Our tour gave us a great overview of Singapore past and present. We had a combination of driving in a car mixed with walks to get up close or for views over the city. We covered a lot of ground and Hj N. paced it nicely.

We had our tour with Hj. He was incredibly knowledgeable, accommodating, creative and flexible. He made our day a real treat. We stayed in Singapore for a few days and went on a cruise. We had a long day after our cruise and decided to book a one day tour. We learned more from Hj in our one day than we did in all the time we spent on our own. I could not more strongly recommend him as a guide. I do not write reviews often. He just really worked hard and went out of his way to make for a very nice day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jeff and Tracy for taking the time to write this review. I really appreciate it. All the best to all of you and your lovely family.

HJ is picked us up in a timely manner and was knowledgeable as a Singapore native and gave us informed information about the Marina Area and Central Business District. He also took us to the Buddha Tooth Temple and Museum which was amazing and took us through Chinatown as well as other areas.

We had an incredible time exploring the sites, sounds and tastes of Chinatown with HJ! In addition to the amazing food (ie, HJ's favorite place for chicken and rice), HJ showed us so much more about the culture and local customs and even took us to one of the local apartment buildings to see how many people live. The rooftop garden was incredible. Make sure to come hungry!

Hj Ng was right on time at our hotel and recognized that we are not able to walk long distances. He drove us through all the various districts of the city with stops for photos and explained about the history and development of the city from the time of independence in 1965. He took us to the City Gallery which contains a scale model of the main business districts of the city and a long mural about the city's master plan developments. Finally, we stopped at the rooftop Sky Park 50 stories up.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Dawn and Joseph for allowing me to show you my city and submitting this comprehensive review. I really appreciate it. Wish you have a wonderful time touring Asia. Merry Christmas and Happy New year to you !!

We spent two days with HJ. He listened to what we wanted to do which was see some of the normal tourist sights, but also see how locals really live. We learned so much about Singapore's history, Lee Kuan Yew and how he transformed the country from a slum to a dynamic city. He showed us amazing public housing that is available for all working people to own. He is very proud of his own home. We would definitely recommend HJ!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Nancy and Bob for taking the time to write this comprehensive review. I really enjoyed showing the 2 of you around in singapore. Btw the app that I used for identifying plants is Plantsnap. Wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year !!

The van was very comfortable and HJ is extremely knowledgeable on many relative subjects related to the history of Singapore going back to the origins as well as the entire region. HJ enthusiastically guided us through the Indian Museum, Muslim Museum, Little India, the Muslim Quarter, China Town, a great lunch place, Marina Bay Sands Skypark and Casino as well as other places. Then safely delivered us to the Airport and made sure we were comfortable getting checked in.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Regina and family for taking the time to write the review. I really enjoyed showing you around. All the Best to you :)

My family enjoyed our tour with HJ very much! HJ's knowledge of Singapore's history, culture, food and even plant life was impressive as he was able to answer all our questions. Even with the hot weather, HJ was able to navigate us through the city with many air-conditioned & shaded pathways. We saw many landmarks, had special access to unique lookout points and had the chance to try unique local snacks at the 50cent festival. HJ's thoughtful planning & flexibility appealed to all our different interests.

We had such a great day exploring Singapore with Hj! While I had been to Singapore several times, it was my wife's first time here. Still, Hj was able to design a perfect tour, to give my wife a solid overview of the highlights as well as add some unique experiences that I had never seen. His knowledge of the history and the many cultures of this special country is incredibly extensive, and he was fun and personable. Thanks so much, Hj!

I had a fantastic day with HJ in Singapour, we somehow managed to cram in the whole city in a day ... the food, the sights, markets, museums, temples, shops .... even a cheeky gin sling in Raffles. I can not recommend this tour and guide enough ! You will never see it all with out this help and it is well worth the money. Also for a solo traveller it was good to have the company and personal camera man!! Enjoy��

Had a great tour today, visiting more than we planned. We got to snack on some unique foods for an added bonus. I do have a couple of regrets: he took us to some unusual, awesome shops and I looked around but didn't buy. Wish I could go back and buy. Just a fun day with too many highlights to mention.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Maryann and Mark for being adventurous with food. Will pm you the names of the shops we visited :)

Went to annual Ramadan festival. Really great. He took tons of pictures for us. Great photographer! Really had a great night, but we'd just landed from the USA and we were so so so tired. I'd recommend you not do this on your first night. Too much jet lag. I would recommend Hj Knows the hidden gems!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Maryann and Mark for your review. Hope you have recovered from your jetlag by now.... cheers :)
