We booked to do the evening tour as part of our planned Singapore holiday and were really looking forward to it. It was to be the first thing on our itinerary after our arrival by cruise ship on the 2nd of March.
But the world is a little crazy at the moment and our cruise was cancelled and we were incredibly disappointed to not get to Singapore after all.
I’m writing this review based on the incredible service received from this company right from the initial inquiry until our unfortunate need to cancel.
James, you are amazing. Firstly, you organised us a tour on a day it didn’t normally happen, and then refunded us quickly and in a way that saved us from losing money in transfer fees
Your communication and empathy are first class, and I will be booking this food tour when we do eventually come to Singapore.
For anybody considering booking this tour, if it is as good as the service provided by the company in my situation, then you are in for a treat.
Please support this company if you are able during this difficult time. If we had any other choice, we would be eating curry puffs and laksa this week.

Thanks a lot for taking the time to write this review. I'm glad we could help you out in what is a bit of a crazy time. It's a shame as we have a lot of tours still going ahead as normal apart from visitors from cruise companies. We will be here for you for your future trip don't worry. Thanks again and hope to see you guys soon.

The tour was amazing. We are a family of 4 with children 10 & 11, the tour was engaging for all of us and our guide Shabnam made sure the children were made to feel part of the action. The tour was a great mix of history, culture and a lot of fun. Can not recommend this tour enough. The time flew by and Shabnam was an excellent host, this is her local area so her knowledge is broad ranging. 10/10

We've lived in Singapore for a few years, and after enjoying food tours across SE Asia, signed up for this one to get a different view on the place we now call home. We really enjoyed this view of the neighbourhood, trying all new restaurants (to us), and hearing the stories behind them. Our tour guide, Shabnam, was lovely and patient with our kids (ages 5 and 7) as they asked questions. At the end of our tour, the kids asked when we could do another one - I don't think there's a better endorsement than that!

Oh wow. Thanks so much for that amazing review. You guys were the first people to enjoy our private family ticket. We created this to encourage the kids to try new things whilst on their private family tour. Glad to hear it is worthwhile. I will pass your kind words to Shabnam and hopefully we see you guys soon. Thanks again

We were lucky to have Shabnam as our tour guide, she was very engaging and knowledgeable. It was a lovely 3.5hrs discovering katong, learning the little nuggets about katong heritage, peranakan culture, tasting the famous food (curry puff, bakwa, chicken rice, roti prata and nonya snacks), history of the area and streets. As a Singaporean, the food was not the highlight of the tour but the whole experience including visiting a Hindu temple and peranakan museum. I would highly recommend this tour

We did the tour during an 8 hour stop over in Singapore. It was our third visit and a great way to experience another part of the city. The food was excellent and the guide gave us unique insight into what it means to live in Singapore. Definitely recommended.

Thanks for spending your stop over with us. It's a perfect tour to do in such a short space of time as we're pretty near the airport and have way better food than they have. Really glad you guys enjoyed the experience and please come and see us on your 4th visit here.

Cathy our guide gave a us a food tour plus more. Very interesting to learn more about both Peranakan history and whilst exploring
the bright shop house lined streets of Katong. A lovely surprise visit to a Hindu temple.

Thanks a lot Jay. Your review is not just important to us but also all of the food vendors that we visit along the way. By taking our food tour you supported no less than 8 local businesses that need our support at the moment. So thanks a lot. Great to hear you enjoyed the tour.

After an initial false step we met Jasmine to start our Katong food adventure. The Curry puffs, Hainanese rice chicken, Parathra curry, Katong Laska, Achar salad and soo much more.Along the way we learnt about the history, the religion and the culture of the area. The stories of the family generations involved with each dish and the development of the Peranakan culture. Overall an awesome tour. As advised others, come hungry!

We had a good time on the tour and Jasmine was a great guide. However, we won't be recommending it to friends because it is extremely over priced. I tallied up the food costs and it wouldn't have been more than $60 for the four of us (two curry puffs, two plates of chicken rice, two pratas, two tehs, two bowls of laksa and some kuehs), so it's quite unexpected that we should be charged $480 in total for the four of us. I understand that the guide could have ordered more food at each stop but honestly I can't see the food costs rising to more than $80 for the group of four.

It also does not make sense that the price is set per person for us 4 - given that the guide does the same work whether it's 3 people or 6 people. Overall, perhaps the price is set for tourists from Europe or the U.S. who aren't aware of what the food costs are in Singapore.

Hi Rachel, Many thanks for taking the time to air your opinions. All our reviews are important to us. As I explained to you when you privately emailed me, there are a lot more costs to running a food tour business than just the food. Our guide fees in Singapore are very high and in order to get the best guides we will not compromise and pay for cheaper, less knowledgeable guides. (Your first line indicates we are wise to do this) We also need to pay for operating costs such as insurance, website, training, marketing etc... Put it this way, noone starts a food tour business in Singapore to become a millionaire. I started this to help visitors find our real food and not the tourist options. Which is exactly what we are doing. Since our first tour in 2015 we have been told by many guests that they would happily have paid more but we have kept the price where it is so as many people as possible can come along and enjoy our hidden food gems. There are cheaper options in the market but having tried them I am confident that my prices are correct and that you get what you pay for. Again, many thanks for taking the time to raise your opinions.

We sent a lovely afternoon wondering around the Katong area. It was interesting to learn about the area and taste the food of the four culturals that make up Singapore. My husband enjoyed all the food but I am a little chilli sensitive and found the curry and seafood laksa too hot. I was able to have dahl instead of the curry but there was no substitute for the laksa. I would highly recommend this tour but if like me you don't like your food too hot maybe mention this at time of booking so something else can be arrange for you.
P.S The curry puff is to die for.

My wife and I had the opportunity on our honeymoon to participate in the evening food tour with Shabnam. Our group was small (four people), which was the perfect size for learning new things as we ate our way through Katong. Shabnam was an excellent guide who not only took us to some of the best food Singapore had to offer, but also shared some great personal stories that helped us to better understand the culture and upbringing for Singaporeans. This was in many ways both similar and different to how individuals are raised in our country, so it was very informative and interesting to learn from Shabnam's experience. Would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Singapore looking to better understand the culture and food of the many cultures!
