It is a great tour! You get to learn a lot about Singapore and see some “hidden gems” of Singapore as well. I would recommend to anyone who is looking to learn more about the country. We had plenty of time to take pictures, ask questions, and look around - not always a given on tours, but this tour was perfect.
