Follow the unique route which your Local Host has designed specifically with and for you, either by walking or using public transport so you can get familiar with how to move around the city or navigate Singapore’s efficient bus and metro system. 

Your local will give your trip a kickstart, helping you to make the most of your time in Singapore by showing you the highlights in the area you want to explore and helping you get familiar with the city and its unique culture. 

Learn about the city’s cultural practices, heritage and cuisine as you explore the city together, perhaps stopping by a hawker centre to try some authentic local food.

What To Expect 

We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality, tastes and interests so we can assign a like-minded local who can create a bespoke experience for you.

Your Local Host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience you can always change your mind about what you want to do and eat. 

Your Local Host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary.

Although you will see well known sights, your Local Host will also help you to discover the places, things and stories that you won’t find in a guidebook and that make the city unique.

Es war eine tolle Idee einen privaten Guide zu haben, zu empfehlen!

Unser Guide Joshua hat uns vorab Vorschläge gemacht, was wir unternehmen könnten. Trotzdem war er flexibel, um auf unsere Wünsche einzugehen. Wir haben leider nur 3 Stunden gebucht. Es hätte gerne auch länger sein können. Er hat uns einen Einblick in das Leben in Singapur gegeben und uns Tipps zum landestypischen Essen und Fortbewegen mit Taxi, MRT gegeben.

Hervorragender Guide

Neben sehr guter Vorbereitung für die (auch geschichtlich interessante) Tour, auch gutes Allgemeinwissen. Gutes Einfühlungsvermögen für Wünsche... Ist bereits weiterempfohlen worden!

Who says Singapore is one dimensional!

To be honest that's what I thought before I came and met up with Joshua. All a bit too shiny and controlled. But, my eyes have been opened and I admit I was wrong. Joshua has helped me to see bits of Singapore that I never knew existed. There is real depth to the place and of course to the people- my wife does call me judgement (often) and maybe she's right. Enough said- the whole thing was brilliant and I cant recommend it enough!

Thank you to Celine and especially Jose. Both responded very quickly to my last minute request and both couldn't have been more helpful. I was particularly interested in the food and loved all the special little places I was shown. Singapore has lots of intriguing little shops and things- most of which I would never have found on my own. Thanks guys.
