Meet your private guide for morning pickup at your Singapore hotel, and head first to Chinatown, Singapore’s vibrant Chinese enclave, by private, air-conditioned vehicle.

Stop at the Thian Hock Keng Temple, one of the city’s oldest Hokkien temples. Head inside to explore the extravagant courts and halls, and learn how it was once the first port of call for Chinese sailors arriving in Singapore.

Next, visit the Singapore City Gallery on the edges of Chinatown, charting the development of the city over the past 50 years through the fascinating architectural models.

Travel to Sago Lane, the narrow street known as the ‘Street of the Dead.’ Learn how this now-redeveloped street was filled with Chinese ‘death houses,’ where the poor came to die, until the establishments were banned in the mid-20th century.

Visit a traditional medicinal hall to learn about Chinese herbal remedies, and stroll down Pagoda Street, one of Chinatown’s main shopping hubs. Browse the markets for souvenirs, and enjoy lunch (own expense) at the Chinatown Complex Food Centre or Food Street. These food courts or ‘hawker centers’ are culinary heaven, with a myriad of food stands selling Chinese and local dishes like fish noodles, seafood, satay, and barbecued specialties.

Afterward, drive to Little India, the historical home of Singapore’s Indian community. Wend your way by shops selling flowers, saris, and sweets, and see colorful temples, churches, and mosques. Continue to colonial-era streets like Dickson Road, Clive Street, and Dunlop Street, and finally, explore Kampong Glam, Singapore’s old-time Malay-Arab quarter.

Explore lively Arab Street and Haji Lane, where traditional carpet and textile shops co-exist with trendy boutiques and cafes. Stop to admire the golden domes of the Sultan Mosque as you discover its intriguing history and links with the aristocracy.

Your tour then concludes with a hotel drop-off.

It was excellent for the short amount of time we had. The driver came to our hotel and dropped us back to it. As it is hard to park on the street, having a private car helps to drop you at a near location and no need to suffer. The guide was great and took us through all the heritage areas.Gave us time to also shop around. Lunch provided was very good. I recommend this trip as a first introduction to Singapore. You can see all points of interest. Our driver took us after the tour to a little drive around the common areas and to see things we couldn't with the guide.

We spent the day with Monica and thoroughly enjoyed it! She was the best tour guide we had throughout our stay in Asia. She told us all about Singapore and took us to a museum that showed us the layout and future plans of Singapore. We were able to alter our tour to fit our needs.

The tour was very personalized to what we wanted to see. The vehicle was clean and new and supplied drinking water and umbrellas to each guest and since it was raining in the morning that was very helpful. The guide took us to places that we would avoid the rain and was very knowledgeable of the city and places that the regular visitor would not see. Spoke very good English and friendly. Parking in Singapore is very tough but the driver was there to pick us up after each stop. Very courteous and drove well. I would surely recommend this tour.

Excellent tour for anyone interested in the history and heritage of Singapore! Our guide took us to several cultural locations where we could experience life in and around the markets, shrines, and temples. We also stopped at the famous Raffles Hotel for a Singapore Sling! Our guide was very informative, and she was very accommodating to our group!

This is worth every penny in our opinion. It is more expensive, but, you get a personalized experience. Our group tour consisted of our tour guide - Mr Rayney/Tan, our driver - Mr Wong, and the two of us. There was complete flexibility to focus on areas and items of interest to and for us. Even our lunch stop was also tailored for our tastes and budget. We got great historical information and context for all of the different sites including temples, churches, mosque and places we traveled to, as well as, having flexible amounts of time to spend at each one. What more could you ask for. We thoroughly enjoyed our private tour and we highly recommend it.

We have come to rely on Viator tours no matter where we are in the world. The guides have been uniformly excellent. We have recommended Viator tours to others too. Our full-day Singapore tour brought the culture of the city alive. Our guide was so personable and engaging. She had a wealth of knowledge too. Great job!
