Helena was an excellent tour guide and very knowledgeable. Although the subject matter is distressing at times it would be well worth your time. Understanding the past is th key to creating a better future. I highly recommend this tour.
We were disappointed as some things were not available to visit. The Chapel was not open. It wasn’t value for money as a tour though the tour guide was lovely. However learnt a little more about the history of how Singapore fell to Japanese
We had a great tour which was made so very informative by our excellent tour guide Carol. She was able to explain in depth and detail every point of the tour from the side of Singapore and relate it to the various nationalities on the tour.
The only disappointing part was that the War Museum was closed and you can no longer visit the Changi Chapel.
lovely tour leader but I did struggle to understand her. Shame. Maybe it was the PA system on the bus. Tour leader works for the government so a certain take on some things.... not much talk of what happens in Changi Jail.
I have read about the fall of Singapore & the Burma campaign but our passionate & knowledgable guide Carol really broadened my knowledge of this period. She touched on the invasion, the sufferings of the POWs & aspects of how the civilian population suffered under the brutal Japanese occupation that are not usually covered in Western books. The way the various races were categorised & treat ed was a real eye opener. Finishing with a minutes silence at Kranji Commonwealth war cemetery was more than appropriate.
If you are interested in the history of that period or have a relative who served in the region then go on this tour.
My father served with the RAF in Changi towards the end of the war, so I was interested to visit some of the places I have his photos of. Our tour guide gave an informed commentary about each place we visited. It's a shame that the Changi war memorial was closed for refurbishment (we did know this in advance). The tour concluded with a visit to the cemetery which was very moving.
We enjoyed very much the places we visited and the content of the tour, we were just disappointed with the pick-up (tour start meeting point) and tour end point (where we were all left at the end of the tour). Both were at MRT stations and we had two elderly people in our group who struggled a lot with this being there was no seating available to wait on at start of tour and cool place to wait.. I would strongly recommend a start and end point of this tour in a more comfortable and accessible area for people of all ages and abilities. One of the elderly and less mobile in our group, her father was a British prisoner of war in Changi prison during WWII so was very poignant her attending this Tour. I must admit Poh our tour guide definately went above and beyond to ensure my elderly parents got safely into a taxi to get back to our hotel at the end of this tour, and throughout the tour Poh was very accommodating to my parents.. We found Poh very informative on this tour, but those of our group sitting at the back of the bus struggled to hear what she was saying on the microphone throughout the entire tour, I think because she had microphone to close to her mouth. My children were on the tour with us also aged 19 and 24 and they found this history of this tour very interesting.
it was an interesting tour our guide nancy was full of interesting history.wehad to get a taxi to pick up point then dropped off at kranji train station at end a 35 min. ride to orchard rd.but that was easy
enough.people very helpful when asking for help.overall we learnt alot of facts and seen abit of the island.museum closed but we knew that.the kranji commonwealth war cemetery worth a visit just in itself .thanks nancy for the history lesson.
Excellent tour. Our guide Carol was very informative and entertaining. We enjoyed the whole afternoon. I would recommend this tour to anyone young and old. We would do the tour again when the Changi Museum is reopened. It was a very warm day but we were very comfortable in the coach between locations.
We had a wonderful time on this coach tour. The best part was Joo Ling, our guide. So knowledgeable, funny and with a wide range of stories to share. Sadly Changi was closed, which was disappointing, but everything else was great! The tour finished at Kranji War Memorial, which was a very moving place to visit. If anyone wants more information about what Changi was like, watch the move 'The Railway Man'. Thanks Joo Ling, for a great experience. We'll be back to visit Changi, next year.
