What you’ll do

You could never see everything the incredible city of Singapore has to offer in one day, but with one of our Singapore hosts (and a very nifty metro system) on your side, you sure can try!

You’ll flit your way around the city, seeing as much as you can of the must-see spots, from Supertree Grove to cable cars over Sentosa Island and back again.

But it all depends on what you count as unmissable.

For some of us that could be taking a panorama from atop Marina Bay Sands, for others it could be getting lost in vibrant Chinatown and visiting Taoist temples, whilst for some it could be sipping a Singapore Sling in the very hotel where this cocktail was created.

So, all you need to do is let us know if there are any sights you’d particularly like to see, as well as what your general vibe is, and together with your host, we’ll do the rest.

So, what are you waiting for? Ditch the guidebook - those things are heavy anyway - and get ready to see the real Singapore in just one day!

Experience highlights

  • Get to know the real Singapore with your host by your side

  • See some of the city's most famous attractions in a day - we can’t promise you’ll see them all but you can sure try!

  • Your host will design a bespoke route for you which takes in the city's highlights and must-see sights according to you

  • Eat and drink like a local at a hawker center, trying delicacies and staple dishes that are cooked up at these food courts throughout the day, but if you’d prefer a restaurant we’ll make that happen too!

  • Get tips for the rest of your stay, and pick your host’s brains for local tips and tricks

Great Singapore private Tour

It became some kind of habit to start the first day in a city with a tour with a local guide. Here in Singapore we had our tour with Nengiy. He is a local photographer and explained in a 7 hours tour through the city how Singapore works, the public transport, the major quarters, the food courts, cafes, bars and markets. He was a great guide and the 7 hours passed by in a glance! Thanks Nengiy!

One Special Day in Singapore

We met our host, Paul Lee, at our hotel and had a delightful day. I had written (as requested) a brief outline of what our interests are as well as our physical abilities, such as can we walk long distances. Paul had a great feel for what to show us and was so knowledgable about his city. Just FYI, unbeknownst to us the guides don't own cars since only 10% of Singapore residents do, but the taxis we took all over were extremely inexpensive. We would have loved to spend one more day with Paul (in two days you could truly explore the city) but our single day was fabulous. Many thanks to Paul and CityUnscripted!

Excellent time in Singapore

Our guide, Kenny, was very friendly and knowledgeable. He allowed us to have exactly the experience we were hoping for. I highly recommend this to any tourist wanting to know the history or more information (food, culture, shopping, etc.) on any parts of Singapore!

Sehr interessante Tour in ein unbekanntes Singapur

Janice Lu hat eine tolle Tour für uns organisiert und uns die - für uns bisher - unbekannten Seiten von Singapur gezeigt. So sahen wir China Town, Little India und Little Arabia. Hochspannend und kurzweilig. Auch unseren Kindern (13 und 11) hat die Tour sehr gut gefallen, trotz 3h gehen .... ;-)
