What to expect

Are you ready for a multi-sensory journey into Singapore's story? If so, then this private guided tour is for you to explore the top sites (and hidden ones too) of Singapore City Gallery, the Singapore River aboard a bumboat, Clarke Quay, Gardens by the Bay, and many more.

Starting from your accommodation, you'll explore the Singapore City Gallery (also known as the URA City Gallery), which has an urban planning gallery that captures planning efforts and facts about Singapore’s land use, built heritage, natural environment, and global presence. Then, you'll board an authentic river bumboat for a cruise along the Singapore River. Listen about how these vessels were once used to shuttle cargo whilst you're steered on the historic Singapore River set against the towering skyline of the modern business district.

You'll also gain knowledge about the Singapore River itself and how it was the very lifeblood of the colony, the trade artery, the center of commercial activity, and the heart of entrepot trade. As you alight at Clarke Quay, you'll learn about the person it's named after, Sir Andrew Clarke, Singapore's second governor. Then, admire one of Singapore’s National Gardens, called Gardens by the Bay, where you'll see the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest cooled conservatories and the vertical gardens of Supertrees. A walk amidst the aerial walk of OCBC Skyway and a wander around the outdoor-themed gardens completes your experience.
