TOUR BRIEF

Our walking tour brings you on a comprehensive journey to rediscover Singapore's hidden gems, unravel what's behind the history you learnt in school, and see our city through fresh lenses. From the shores of the Singapore River, through the back lanes of Telok Ayer , past exquisite shophouses in Chinatown, follow us as we peel back the layers of history to uncover the real Singapore beneath its glitzy facade.
