Excellent tour of Civic District & Singapore River
I always look for free walking tour when I'm traveling new cities. In Singapore, I took part in the Singapore City tour.
We had an excellent tour with Bas of the civic district and Singapore river. We visited sights like the Fullerton Hotel, Merlion, Victoria theatre and the Old Parliament House. Bas was really knowledgeable and told us about the history of Singapore. He was really entertaining and good at telling his stories, which were mixed with many fun facts about the city. I would really recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning about Singapore and it's history.
Absolutely worth the 2-3 hrs.
