    I am always curious about religions in Singapore and how the various religions co-exisit in harmony.

    This tour bring us to various religious landmarks in singapore and the guide explains the significance, history and interesting details about each venue and the worship practices.

    He also introduced friendly volunteers from every place of worship to allow us third party insights and casual question and answer sessions.

    Highly recommended for everyone visiting Singapore or locals who just want to learn more!

    The tour is interesting and takes you off the beaten track, even myself as a Singaporean haven’t been to some of the places included in the tour. Guide Jan is amazing and very detailed.

    This tour opened up my mind and my understanding of how different race and religion could live harmoniously together is such a small country. Being a Singaporean, I do often miss out on the small elements that made this happen (some will say that I took it for granted).

    The guide is very passionate and he shared and show us the various places of worship of different religions as we travelled to different parts of Singapore.

    I am most impressed when we visited the Sikh Temple, Khalsa Dharmak Sabha at 18 Niven Road, where we learnt about their religion and practices.

    The tour ends at Harmony in Diversity Gallery where we see and learn about the efforts of Inter-Religious Organisation Singapore in ensuring all religions are able to practice within Singapore harmoniously!

    A highly recommended tour to join!

    By far the most comprehensive tour I've been in Singapore about Race and Religion. The tour started by talking about different living areas and how did Singapore achieve co-existence. Then proceed to introduce some of the religions in Singapore. Finally concluded at a hidden gallery that showcase and concluded the tour perfectly.

    Do come for the tour with an open mind to see how to integrate faith into the society, and live together without segregation. As tour guests are in mixed ethnicity and religion, we also had a fruitful time engaging in thought-provoking conversation; not so much on our faith, but rather about understanding one anothers' faith and how to respect the culture. Time passes rather fast that you felt that you had just been in a crash course on the topic. Super interesting!

    I am a local but the tour has still uncovered points on religion in Singapore for me. Especially the lesser known IRO religions like Bahaism and also information about Free Masonry.

    Under no circumstances book any tour provided by NAS Tours. Meeting time was 10am at exit E. We arrived at 9.30, every leaving or walking past had to walk by us. By 10.20 no one had arrived. Several times I rang the tour provider's number but no answer. I then rang Viator, they apologised and suggested I wait longer. By this time it was 10.30 so I said I am not waiting any longer. They offered a refund and to their credit I had it back in a few days. But this is not the point! You book a tour you expect to take the tour, not be stood up and ignored. NAS tours should be deregistered and banned from conducting further tours. I also see we aren't the first this has happened to.

    Such a terrible experience. I went to the meeting point and there was no one there. Contacted the tour operator no one picked up the call. Then I called the hotline of Viator and they failed to reach the tour operator either.

    Then after 15mins Viator agreed the initiate the refund process. But now 4 days later I haven’t got any refund yet.

    I hope TripAdvisor and Viator will get this sorted out.

    With the start of the new year, I went for a unique tour which seems like a pilot tour for the public. It is about Race and Religion. It is truly a wonder to see how the different walks of life come together to live harmoniously in one small location.

    Singapore has meticulously planned numerous communal spaces where all can come and interact with one another, such as everyday things like HDB flats and living estates. The tour also has brought us along to places of worship of the few main religions in Singapore such as the Indian temples, mosque and churches. While Yap, our guide, did not go too in-depth into the various religion, he is knowledgeable to highlight the main idea of each religion and how Singapore achieved Religious tolerance and acceptance. He emphasized on this point a lot throughout the tour.

    The tour also has brought us along to places of worship such as Sri Veeramakaliaman, Sikh Gurdwara and Sultan Mosque. The high level of religious tolerance practised here might be difficult to believe until one manages to get the chance to observe it first-hand, as well as several examples that are pointed out by the guide. We were shown to Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple, Sri Krishnan Temple, Church of Saints Peter and Paul, Maghain Aboth Synagogue. All of which has integrated a form of religious practise from another faith.

    The Inter-Religious Organisation (IRO) is then introduced to us, where it is a recognised organisation that is jointly governed by the 10 official religions in Singapore which also cares for all the minor religions as well. This ensures that new laws and policies enacted have considered all the groups in Singapore, regardless of race, language or religion.

    This tour has truly been an intriguing and eye-opening experience as Yap shared the cultural interpretation and local insights. For tourist and locals, this tour is strongly recommended for the inquisitive-natured.

    I really enjoyed hearing differing perspectives from participants on their race and religions while having the chance to visit AND ENTER the varied places of religion. We take it for granted every other day and this tour gives us the best platform to walk in and explore with our 5 senses.
    Thank you Yap!
