    What to Expect
    The tour sets off from The Walking Singapore in Esplanade and makes its first stop at the major tourist attraction, Merlion Park, to learn about Singapore's mythical national icon, the half lion half fish, Merlion. As your guide takes you towards the river's oldest bridge, Cavenagh Bridge, you'll pass through the mail tunnel of the old Singapore Post Office, which is today's Fullerton Hotel.

    The walk continues to the Old Parliament House, the oldest surviving building in Singapore. Learn about its many uses and extensions through time, and the restoration works that transformed it to today's The Arts House. The tour will then make a stop to sample a Singaporean breakfast staple, charcoal-grilled kaya toast and teh tarik. Kaya is a traditional jam made from coconut and eggs; teh tarik is a hot milk tea beverage which literally means pulled tea.

    After a quick bite, the walk leads you into the downtown core of Singapore to the National Gallery, home to the world's largest collection of Singapore and South East Asian art. Finally, a walk through the South Beach Complex will take you to the Fountain of Wealth where you will be invited to walk around a mini fountain at the center of the fountain's base three times for good luck.

    You will then make a stop at the Cookie Museum to sample uniquely flavored cookies like Pandan Chiffon, Chili Crab and Chicken Rice. The 3-hour walking tour comes to an end back at The Walking Singapore where our guides will present you with some gifts before sending you off to enjoy the rest of your Singapore adventure.

    Sammy was the most dedicated tour guide we ever had! He walked us around the city, always making sure we got the best views and remained in the shadow or with air conditioning ;) We had the chance to try local food, visit a 5 star hotel, a jail, a library and tons more.

    Our tour guide with the company, The Walking Singapore, was Sammy and he was “Top Notch.” We learned so many interesting facts about Singapore that we would have never known if we explored the city by ourselves. Sammy also shared many personal stories about life in Singapore

    My husband and I really had a great time learning the history of Singapore with Sammy. Also he was very personal with sharing the many areas of interest that most Singaporean did not know. I highly recommend him for this tour.
