The fact that young Singaporeans volunteer to education people about Singapore is amazing. This FREE service gives you an introduction to the Lion City, and its history. The guides are genuinely proud of their country and totally willing to impart this knowledge to everyone. Even though I've lived in Singapore for 5+ years, there was plenty I didn't know about...

We flew out to Singapore to take advantage of the long weekend. As it is only a seven hour flight we got into our hotel in enough time to have a cheeky cocktail before we adjourned for the night. We stayed at the Swissotel Stamford which was ideally situated next to the City Hall underground station. The train tickets system... More

We found this through trip advisor as would recommend it to anyone! The two tour guides were great- very enthusiastic and interesting. It's a great idea and tourists should take advantage of it. Worth a tip!

My wife & I went for the "mini trek" with our friendly guides fr SG Footprints. Extremely informative & eye-opening. Made us want to re-discover our little island with all it's hidden "gems". Thanks once again to our guides Darryl, Shu Wei & Yong Ping 😎

As a first time or regular visit to SIngapore this is a great way to see the city and get around while avoiding the traditional bus tour. The guides are very fun and enjoy what they are doing and the route is quite easy for all. So well done to Footprints - and definitely worth an afternoon.

What can I say. A free guided tour that gives you a good look at Singapore and all the importent sights. It's not like a normal tour where someone is telling you endless facts. Get interaktiv with the guides and have a chat and you will learn so much more about the life in Singapore, no Book can provide :-)

I did this tour in January 2013. The Singapore Footprints Tour is run by passionate young people, who want to show their city off. These tours run on Saturday and Sunday and are free but donations are accepted. Although you don’t get to go inside any buildings that you see, you do get to have a guided walking tour that... More

Well, how can you complain about something that is "tips only". Well quite easily actually - we had a limited amount of time in Singapore and this was a waste of time. The tour was scheduled to start at 6.00 p.m.and last for an hour. It started at 6.15 and ended after half an hour. The student guide was very... More

Today (02/06/13) we went to Bras Basah station and waited outside "The Coffee Bean And Tea Leaf" as instructed. We were there from 5:40 and waited till 6:10 but no-one turned up. We were extremely disappointed and had been looking forwards to finding out about Singapores history. A real pity.

Dear Megan We are deeply regretful that you were not able to join in for our tour on 2 June 2013. As our Singapore River and Bras Basah tours are run on a back to back basis, we encountered slight delays on the first segment, which prevented the main group from arriving on schedule. However, we had a couple of... More
