What a wonderful culinary experience in the great city of Singapore. Food was the main reason for my week-long visit to the city. The 6 hour tour with Gee Soo did not disappoint and was exactly what I was looking for. We started with a Singapore breakfast with a curry puff, kaya toast and coffee on East Coast Road. Also sampled a dumpling and ondeh-ondeh, a sweet desert. We then went to the Old Airport Road Hawker Center where I tried sugar cane juice, Popiah (spring roll) and Rojak, which is a sweetened fruit salad (one of my favorites). At another stop was a four dish tasting of Malaysian food. The spicy beef rendeg was a highlight. Probably my number one favorite was the chicken murtabak.

Two beverages stood out as well. Teh Tarik Halia (ginger pulled milk tea) and hot Badam milk.

I expressed an interest in sports so we made a special stop and the newly built stadium. We also utilized public transportation in the form of bus, MRT, and taxi.

Overall if food is what you are looking to sample in Singapore, this tour is for you. Gee Soo was extremely friendly and accommodating. He has such a genuine love for his city and it is clearly evident that he takes pride in showing it off.

We had an amazing day with our tour guide Su! It was a really nice way to get to know the city a bit better, especially the smaller neigbourhoods that you might not visit otherwise. We learned a lot about the different ethnical groups in Singapore and enjoyed there food. Would definately recommend!

Su Ling's tour was fantastic. We wanted to avoid the obvious Singapore highlights, those that are so obvious to tourists. We wanted to get under its skin, find its personality, quirks, vibes and places to be able to revisit time and again as we are now living here as of 3 months ago.

Su Ling brought its vibrant history to life, we explored neighbourhoods of amazing diversity; Su delved into the cultural significance of each in a fun and accessible way. We discovered 'local' secrets, fun places to wander around and gained meaningful insights based on past and present.

We importantly have a lot to share with our friends and family when they visit this fascinating and vibrant city.

It is so easy to recommend Su. She heard what we wanted, adjusted on the fly and over delivered.

Our Guide, Gee Soo, was excellent. He was timely, well organized and very informative about the City and its sights, customs, features and history. He showed us the Courts, Legislature, City administrative buildings, Churches, special city sights and we experienced the sub way, bus systems and boat rides. He made special arrangements for a Chinese Tea Ceremony and food at the Hawker Food Center. He gave us a worthwhile and memorable experience. AFP. 1/24/20.

We took a private food tour of Singapore with Su Ling in January 2020, and it was INCREDIBLE. Seriously some of the best food my husband or I have ever eaten in our lives. It was also fascinating seeing so much of the city and learning in-depth history of the city, its people, and its food. This was easily one of the best things we did in Singapore, and I couldn't recommend it highly enough.

Fabulous tour! We saw so many different parts of the city and got to try so many different types of food.
This is the best way to learn about the cultural influences in any new city we visit, and this tour did not disappoint.
Our guide, Dan, is super-knowledgeable and so friendly.
What a great first day for us in Singapore!

We very much enjoyed our tour with Su Ling. The different locations, where we have been, have been selected meaningfully and thoughtfully. We not only were introduced to a large variety of wonderful food from the three major ethnicities in Singapore, but also learned a lot about the history of the city, the development of the different groups of people and their interrelationships. Su gave us a very informative insight into the different cultures and showed us places, where one wants to go back to. Su was an excellent guide and we can definitely recommend her.

Fantastic walking tour, where you get to see the main landmarks and hear about historic points without being too much. We loved the tea preparation at. Chinese tea house (very special!), the boat ride was lovely and got to see a lot!
Richard was very passionate and dedicated! He made the day so enjoyable.

I had a free day in Singapore and there were so many food options that I didn't know where to start. I recall an excellent street food tour I took in Hanoi a few years back (also found through Trip Advisor) and that's how I found this activity.

I was not disappointed! My friendly guide Su Ling met me at my hotel and we proceeded through the city via taxis and buses.

Highly recommended!

Breakfast, snacks, lunches, drinks...it was a dizzying experience not only for my belly but Su Ling also filled my head with history and trivia that was fascinating and fun.
