Looking for knowledgeable certified tour guide

Hi All,

My relatives (2 adults and a kid) are going to Singapore in March. My uncle is there on business trip during the days and his wife and the kid are free to see the city. His wife hardly travels so she is a bit nervous about going around by herself especially with young children.

They are interested to visit Universal Studio and also some heritage areas such as Chinatown, as well as Marina Bay area to understand about the history and local cultures. If you know other must see attractions (including restaurants and cafes) to go to, please share.

Does anyone know any responsible and knowledgeable certified tour guide (speaks English), and preferably based on your own experience with him/her… Let me have the contact! Thanks!

Hello,

This is a link to a company that offers group city and attractions tours. It is not private tour guide just for your family members. By joining a tour they will get out and see the sights easily if they do not wish to do it by themselves.

rmgtours.com/daily-tours/singapore-tours.html

Here are some more tour companies. Have a look at the reviews and see which may suit.

For must see attractions, please look at the Top Questions section (near the top of this page, and on the right-hand side). The Visiting > What to see and Do links should be of use.

Hi, below is official email address of Singapore tourist guides association. You can write directly to request for rate and transfers. There are some English speaking guides with coaches to do private tour just for your family.

You will need only 2 ways transfers for Universal Studio - pickup at 0930 hrs from your hotel/residential to U Studio and 1800 hrs return for 1st day. Buy your own tickets

You will need 4 hrs for city tour of city area covering Suntec City, Padang, Singapore River, Merlion Park, Marina Bay area and Chinatown on 2nd day morning from 0900 - 1300 hrs.
