As I'm unable to walk very far this was a lovely relaxing way to see some of the sights. The commentary was well done and very informative. Didn't go for very long but well worth it.

Cruise was relaxing at the end of a day walking around town. Merlion behind scaffolding at present, not visible, but as we just had a video, no live commentary, the voiceover still went on and on about "now you can see the world famous Merlion"...More

Must visit if you visit Singapore. Evenings is the best. Snapshot to cover all attractions in Singapore including Merlion. Dine-in at the restaurant would certainly lift the experience.

Boat ride wasn't too bad but there were too many people trying to take pictures and hence blocking the views.

We bought our tickets at Clarke Quay but I think you can purchase at other kiosks when you board the boat.
