A guided tour is arguably the easiest way to see the places of interest in Singapore. From Singapore day trips to tours that last for an hour, you are in good hands with an insightful and reliable commentary and/or guide. Sightseeing tours in Singapore consists of walking tours, bus tours and boat tours. Most of these work on a full-day pass services and are reasonably priced, considering the number of places and attractions covered.   

Bus Tours

Bus tours offer tourists a cheaper alternative to visit all of Singapore's hot spots. Sentosa Rider and SIA Hop-on offer a hop on and hop off service where you can board and alight at selected locations around the city. The route varies but is typically centered around City Hall, Raffles Place, Clarke Quay, Orchard Road and Sentosa.

River Tours

To relax your feet and mind, opt for a river tour. River tours offer live or recorded commentary as you cruise down the historic Singapore River, passing colonial buildings and pre-war shophouses. From the Esplanade at the river's mouth, up to Robertson Quay, Duck Tours and Hippo River Cruise are managed by an experienced Singapore tour guide providing lively commentary. Water Tours, catered to the more mature tourist, offers breakfast, high tea and dinner cruises around Singapore's coastline and neighbouring islands.

Walking tours

Walking tours provided by Original Singapore Walks and Geraldene will bring you to attractions in Singapore both discovered or otherwise. Led by a team of experienced, funny and upbeat guides (certified by the Singapore Tourism Board), the tours typically last for 3 hours or more and includes food-tasting. It is a favourite for both tourists and locals who wish to learn more beneath the glitzy facade of modern Singapore.
