Our guide, Joanne, was knowledgeable and friendly. The tour of the Battlebox I found to be very emotional and thought provoking. The history behind Fort Canning very informative.

Singapore Battlebox and Fort Canning Hill Tour
Our tour guide Wina was excellent. We learnt the 700 year history of Singapore. The Battlebox was great unfortunately we couldn't take photos. Well worth the visit.

Singapore Battlebox and Fort Canning Hill Tour
Wasn't sure what to expect from this tour other than learning about the recent history of Singapore.The tour started at the Battlebox visitors centre where we were given a bottle of cold water (you will need it). We set off and walked to explore Fort Canning, thankfully we had a fine day as a lot of the tour was out doors.We were surprised about how old Singapore was and the history around it. There are lot's of great photo opportunities.We spend a little over 1.5 hours in and around Fort Canning. The last hour or so was exploring the Battlebox. This was not only interesting from the size of the complex but what happened within it.Our tour guide (Whi Whi) was very informative and answered everyone's questions.We would recommend this tour to anyone that love history but recent and ancient
