Overview

Ruby Dot Trails specializes in high quality, small group walking tours that uncover the Gems of Singapore. Exploring our vibrant neighbourhoods on foot gets you right up close with their sights, sounds & stories and is the most authentic way to get to know our city. What makes us different? We keep our groups small for a more personal & friendly experience. And we show you more - our smaller group sizes allow us to explore the nooks & crannies of our heritage areas which may not be included in a larger group tour. Our weekly join-in tours are a perfect way to see the best of Singapore - you'll get the feel of a private tour without the cost of a private guide. Join us for an unforgettable tour of our visitor favorites of Chinatown, Kampong Glam or Little India... OR go off the beaten track and get up close with the real Singapore with an enlightening and unique tour of our 'heartlands'.
