This tour was not at all as advertised. Our guide was not a bad guide, but he: a) is not a historian, b) did not discuss our itinerary up front, and c) did not really cover the advertised period of 1819-1965 nor provide the contrextual overview of how Singapore went from sleepy village to independence. He did give us a fine tour of a new exhibit in the National Museum, which explores Singapore's history from 1600-1825 - but that is not what this tur was supposed to be about. Bottom-line is that after taking both your Singapore and Bangkok historical overview tours, I feel completely ripped off. The guides were not historians, and did not provide adequate historical overviews of the city under question.
Wonderful tour chock full of historical information. 3 hours was not enough time! I could have kept going. Will definitely come back to Singapore and take another tour with Pavla. She was very knowledgeable and lovely to be with.
We have taken very many Context tours in very many countries, and Tim was the best Context guide we have ever had. He ascertained our interest in museums, took us to see the highlight(s) of each museum and told us what else we might want to return to see. As we walked, he managed to fill us in on everything from history to where we could go for a good view of Singapore. It was a wonderful experience!
