Annie was a delightful tour guide who was very knowledgeable of Singapore history. Always smiley and laughing at the guys corny jokes. Plenty of room for 6 in a 16 seat bus. Driver very good as well. Have used Tours by Locals several times and I am never disappointed. Will use them again in future travels.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Debbie. It was great touring Singapore with a fun loving group.

On time. Pleasant and knowledgeable. Maybe most important , Annie adapted on the fly as she found out I had already spent some amount of time on turf she was going to cover.

Annie was a great tour guide. She was able to accommodate our request of completing two tours in one day and changing the tour, we spent some time in Little India prior to her tour and she was able to change up the tour as we went along. She is very knowledgeable of the area and provided great insight on place to visit on subsequent days. Thanks Annie!

Annie provided a fantastic tour of Singapore for my family and I. My sons, 16 and 17, were able to ask lots of questions and get informed responses from Annie. We began along the waterfront learning about the early trading history, followed by a visit and lunch in Chinatown, then onto Little India. Annie communicated well with us before we arrived and met us on time at our hotel. I highly recommend Annie as a tour guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Timothy and hope you got lots of photos for your scrap book.

Annie was great. Met us at the cruise terminal in Singapore to make the transition to the MRT easy. This was a walking tour and we used local transportation. She had terrific local knowledge, and most importantly, she could communicate it to us. I would recommend Annie to others who desire a private tour and the attention you get doing it this way. One never gets this kind of attention or the kind of personal relationship that develops between the guide and the guided on a group tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jeffrey and do remember to order coffee in the local language if you visit Singapore again.

What a joy it was to spend 5 hours with Annie touring Singapore! I opted for a custom tour, given limited time and desire to see some of the cultural highlights. While she planned a very interesting itinerary for me, what I loved more was that I could ask about anything Singaporean and she gave me some great insights; economics, history, cuisine, urbanization, agriculture, you name it. She is a very smart, articulate and easy to talk to; I learned so much!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Angela for your kind comments.

Annie was a fantastic tour guide. Charming, intelligent, excellent sense of humor and excellent knowledge of her home country. She was able to pace our time together with lots of things to see and do. It was really a great morning learning about Little India and Chinatown through her own eyes as a native Singaporean. We had friends who used her as a guide about a year before and raved about her. We can well see why. We had a wonderful time and, as usual, were glad we used tours by locals.

Annie's tour was just what we wanted. So unique and personal to Singapore. We visited places and buildings we would never have found ourselves, she gave us an insight into the real Singapore. There was flexibility in the schedule and was set to our pace. We enjoyed local snacks and meals, which we would not have tried if she had not been with us. We highly recommend Annie as a knowledgable and professional guide. Book with Annie and you will not regret it.

Annie is a great guide. We had a thoroughly enjoyable day spent with her, experiencing not only the typical tourist sites, but also the local transport system, eateries and even (when she learnt of my consideration of relocating to SG) local show-homes! Her demeanour is friendly and enthusiastic and her knowledge is top notch; I have no reservations about recommending her. Thanks, Annie :)

Our family of four had a really enjoyable time with Annie, she was friendly, informative and accommodating. We got henna tattoos in Little India, experienced some local food and coffee in Chinatown and walked through the streets and markets. She even made a special effort to help my son find flags of other countries. Even though Singapore is relatively easy to get around, Annie's local knowledge made the experience all the more worthwhile.
