Janes Tours Tour Guide Pavla Schneuwly

Licensed Singapore Tour Guide

Certified Docent, Malay Heritage Centre

Certified Docent, National Museum of Singapore

Growing up in Czechoslovakia, Pavla set out to discover the world as soon as the Berlin wall collapsed, and at 22 she came to Singapore to study Mandarin. Her years living, studying and working in different countries plus her two “third culture” children born to her and her Swiss-French husband, have given her a broad understanding and appreciation for diversity.

After learning the art of tour guiding as a volunteer guide in the National Museum of Singapore and Malay Heritage Centre, Pavla reinvented herself as a professional tour guide to share her passion for her island home.

With an interest in history, culture, architecture and languages, she loves connecting the cultural dots. Pavla’s caring and positive attitude ensures she easily relates to people from different walks of life.

Extremely knowledgeable and interesting

Pavla was our guide, a calm, charming and expert Singaporean resident (originally from Czech Republic) who spoke perfect English and was extremely knowledgeable and interesting.

A perfect mix of sites and stories.

Maud P, Tripadvisor
Well-informed and thoughtful

Our guide Pavla Schneuwly was so well-informed and thoughtful. When we asked questions, she went far deeper into the history and other context in a way that was both directly responsive and really illuminating. This is far from the rote kind of tours you may have had. We recommend highly.
