Hj gave a wonderful tour of the WW2 sites of Singapore. He was very knowledgeable with all of the locations as well as explaining other interesting facts about the city. Seeing the fort and the actual Japanese landing sites brought the events to life. Visiting the memorial and seeing the graves was touching. We throughly enjoyed the tour.

After having a rough start, we enjoyed the day and especially the part about public housing. If you plan to go to Singapore don't miss out on this part.

Deborah WozniakUnited States
HJ was a fantastic guide showing us the lifestyle, food and explaining the history of Chinatown. We saw aspects we would never have seen on our own including a spectacular view of the city from the 50th floor of an apartment building. The food was amazing and knowing my love of cooking he sent my some recipes and tips on local spices after our tour. Don't miss this opportunity to see another side of Chinatown and life in Singapore!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your review... Hope you managed to recreate the dishes you tasted. Cheers

Henry ScarangellaUnited States
A great way to get oriented to Singapore. Hj N. knows the city well so I saw areas only a good guide could know about. He was very flexible in terms of the pace we followed and whether we walked or took public transport. Excellent for a first-timer visit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Henry for taking time to write the review. Feel free to contact me if you any help while in Singapore :)
Joan BergerUnited States
We had a wonderful day with HJ. He was timely and knew all the areas to take us to show us the heart of Singapore. We loved to hear his stories about the history and flavor of the city. We only had a few days and it is so helpful to have a private tour and someone to answer all your questions.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Joan and Mitch for the opportunity to show you around Singapore. Cheers !!
Ivica ZaludUnited States
Saw the light show in gardens by the Bay, it is an experience you should not miss! Then we went for a river cruise and saw city skyline by night while Hj was pointing out specific sights to us. It was relaxing and beautiful. We finished the tour with the short walk through Clarke Quay and had a wonderful tasty dinner from local street stands with local specialties. Do not miss trying satay and laksa and carrot cake (mind you, it is not a cake and it does not contain carrots). Wonderful experience!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks...glad that you had a good experience :)
Ivica ZaludUnited States
This tour was everything and more than expected! Hj went above and beyond to show us this beautiful city. We visited Chinese, Indian and Malay neighborhoods, learned about history and current life in the country. Hj is extremely knowledgable, and was happy to answer our multiple questions about ways of life, history and customs. We also saw the public housing which was very interesting insight in peoples' lives here. He took his time with us and showed us even more than on our itinerary. Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Dr Zalud for your feedback. I really enjoyed hosting the 2 of you :) Have a wonderful life ahead :)

We give HJ our highest rating of 5 stars. He was very knowledgeable and friendly about the many areas in Singapore. He was on time, a good communicator and told us very interesting facts about Singapore that enriched our visit. We wish to come back to Singapore and learn more. A very beautiful city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Margaret for your feedback. I really enjoyed hosting the two of you :) Hope your niece like the present and the photo of cats you took :)
Craig CapehartUnited States
My tour experience was excellent! Everything promised was provided, and more. My expectations were exceeded. Hj was well informed and gave complete, clear information. His English was fluent and there was no communication problem of any kind. I enjoyed every minute of the tour. If you are like me and it isn't feasible to conduct research and make your own detailed self-directed tour plans and you want to see as much as possible in a short time then I recommend this tour and this guide unreservedly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your invaluable feedback !! It was a real pleasure showing you downtown Singapore :)
Excellent service all round. Out of ten, I would rate my driver, HJ, a fourteen.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Allan for your review!! Have a fabulous vacation in Singapore and beyond :)
good tour if you're interested in the history of the war. Hj is very knowledgeable, well spoken and friendly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks George for the opportunity to show you the battle sites of world war 2 in Singapore. Cheers
Kathy SouzaUnited States
HJ was an excellent guide and gave us a great tour of Chinatown Singapore's food! We knew nothing about the food and were intimidated to explore it on our own. HJ guided us through many different dishes, explaining their origins and ingredients. In addition to guiding us through the food, he provided a great tour of Chinatown itself. He followed up our tour with a list of the foods we ate so we can seek them out on our own now. I would highly recommend this tour with HJ for anyone visiting Singapore.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kathy and Rod Thanks so much for your feedback !! I had a wonderful time too because both of you were adventurous with food and even drank tea from a plastic bag with a straw, just like locals do...LOL
Robert L.United States
