This was an incredibly fun excursion the day after landing in Singapore. Was a excellent way to see a little of the sights and Florence our guide was a treat. The Merlion was every bit amazing as I had expected and the view of the Marina Bay Sands was something else as it stood in the distance. The Thian hock keng temple was beautiful! The Orchid Garden a real treat, 45 mins wasn’t enough time to explore a fraction but gave enough of a taste to want to go back and explore the botanical gardens as well. Little India was a great way to end the tour and watching the tea pouring was enjoyable I would throughly recommend everyone do this tour, it was run by tour east Asia and they collected us from our hotel and dropped us back off as well. 5/5 ⭐️
