There will be no tours on the 20th & 21th September 2014 due to Road Closure for Singapore Grand Prix Formula One Night Race. Singapore Footprints's free guided walks will allow participants to marvel at the modern developments around Marina Bay and venture off the beaten track on a cultural trail to appreciate how the different races and religious communities co-exist harmoniously in our multi-racial society. We call ourselves the "Walkaholics", a group of passionate students from Nanyang Technological University, committed to running these volunteer walks through our city, every weekend, rain or shine! Every Saturday and Sunday, 4:15pm, Raffles Place MRT Exit B, come on down and walk with us!

We went on this free walking tour which leaves from Raffles Place. The 3 guides were quite good, although sometimes it was hard to hear them because of the size of the group. We got taken around a good portion of Singapore in a bit over 2.5 hours from the Fullerton Hotel to Bra Bahas where we had a better... More

If you enjoy walking then this is an ideal way to see many sites and get the history behind them -from youngsters proud of their city and keen to show it off as well as learn about your city and learn the language. It did feel like we were on a school trip with a teacher at front one in... More

Lovely group of four students gave us a knowledgeable and interesting perspective on this modern city. Can be hard to find things to do on the cheap here, but this is definitely one of them! Definitely remember Penelope and Kristy as two of the tour guides who were lovely, would name the others if I could! They also recommended a... More

We can highly recommend Singapore Footprints. We joined a 3h walking tour on Sunday and got a lot of insights about the city, its history and the different cultures. The tour starts at 4:30 pm at the MRT Station Raffles Place (Exit B) and covers the Bay area, the Governmental area and ends near MRT station Burgis.

Everything was great cant recommend them enough. Would make sure to bring a water, good walking shoes and also a fair donation to help there cause. I know if I had to walk 20 people around my town someone would have to pay me to do what they do.

Came across Footprints online while looking for walking tours in Singapore. I chose to go for it because I liked the idea that it was founded by university students and is run by students too. They were very professional and fun at the same time. They were guiding the group effortlessly, and it truly felt like I was walking with... More

The genuine passion and interest in Singapore shown by this tour is surely unparalleled. It's founded and run by a group of university students who share their knowledge of Singaporean history, tourist attractions and an insight into everyday life. It's free, although a donation to their program is appreciated. This is one of those great finds, if you're keen on... More

I took a footprints walking tour with June. She took us through a very pleasant and informative walk throughout many places. The history was explained in great detail and was able to answer any questions we had. I would recommend taking this tour before you do anything as it will enlighten your trip for where you want to investigate further.... More

Staying in Little India

Neighborhood Profile
Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander past traditional barbershops while local residents in brightly colored saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colorful shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge. Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts and take in the stalls selling bright flowers, fabrics, and spices. At the 24-hour, four-level Mustafa Shopping Center, you can shop through the night and find everything from pharmacy and grocery items to Bollywood DVDs and diamond necklaces. Singapore’s Little India offers a colorful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.
