Free Walking Tour!

Our go-to tour if you want our quick guide to Singapore’s history.

This is the walk where we will show you how Singapore changed from a fishing village to a colonial outpost to the shiny metropolis it is today. We will touch on the important events that shaped Singapore, and along the way you will see some of our most important monuments and some of the futuristic skyscrapers. We will try to share a bit more about where we go from here as well.

If you would like to go on this tour on your own date/time, head on to this page, or drop us an email, and we can customize this tour for you.

Tour Details

Book your slots for a guaranteed spot on our tours (registration is free and it helps make sure we have enough guides on the job). You are welcome to meet us at the meeting point without a reservation, but we cannot guarantee that you will be able to join us if the group is full.

These tours are FREE, but tips are welcome (our guides receive no other compensation or commissions).

We believe that tips given should be voluntary and in direct proportion to the quality of the tour and the budget of the traveler. Value for money goes a long way, and satisfied customers tip what they think the tour was worth!

We do not accept large group/organization bookings for our Free Tours, as they are intended for individual/small family signups only (max 5 persons/signup). They follow a set schedule and are not customizable. We place a limit on the number of sign ups per tour to ensure that everyone has a chance to go on the tour with us. Our aim is for our guests to have a more personal and intimate experience with us.

For larger groups and/or corporations, we recommend engaging us for our private customized paid tours. That way you can customize what you would like to see as well as set a date/time that is suitable for your group.

What to Expect

If places could talk! The Civic District is the area where you can see a lot of the buildings that are central to many events that have shaped Singapore to what it is today. As we walk down the Singapore River, we will share with you how Singapore went from a fishing village to a colonial outpost, and how we became the crown jewel of the British Empire in the East. We will also see sites where key events of the Second World War unfold… from the battle of Singapore to the occupation and eventual surrender of the Japanese Imperial Army. We will also see places which are integral to our road to independence, and some of our plans for the future as well.

Our tours will follow all current Safe Distancing Measures (SDM) as prescribed by the Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI) during the Circuit Breaker (CB) period.

This will include limiting the number of guests allowed on each tour. Guest in one tour group may also have to be further divided into smaller sub groups with sub group size mandated by the current SDM
