Described as quirky, fun-loving and curious, Jan treads on the offbeat side of life as he navigates between chasing his dream of running a farm home stay and exploring the myriad facets of what it means to be Singaporean.
Jan previously spent time living in Thailand and Japan, and is now back in Singapore with fresh eyes (and ears) for anything pertaining to Singapore's history, culture & arts. As someone who’s traveled extensively, Jan’s cultural sensibilities extend beyond the shores of this little red dot, and he is keenly aware of what visitors to Singapore are looking out for.
A fervent believer of the need to minimize our footprint during our short stay on this lovely planet, Jan is never found without his reusable bowls, cups and utensils that he faithfully carts around. Join him on a tour and you just might just be inspired to take his lead!

Darren's a young Singaporean who's passionate about all things Singapore. Armed with a degree in Geography from the National University of Singapore, he is now working on making Singapore's urban environment a vibrant and liveable one.
Born and bred in this fascinating city-state, he is particularly interested in its modern development, and enjoys sharing interesting and quirky stories about life here on this sunny island, past and present, particularly on a kayak out in the middle of the sea!
Darren joined SneakPeek Singapore five years ago as a way to showcase the Singapore Story from lesser-known perspectives. He hopes that through thoughtfully-curated tours, participants will be able to get a better understanding of Singapore and the fascinating places that lie within.
