Authentic Singapore!

As a resident of Singapore, I feel lucky to have been able to take advantage of more tours with Jane’s Tours than I can count. I particularly love the Tuesday walks exploring the different distinct areas of Singapore…including Tiong Bahru, Kampong Glam, Geylang and The Botanic Gardens to name a few. Jane and her team are knowledgeable without being over -facing; interesting in the telling of local stories and fun to be with… Every tour is a winner!

Very informative and enjoyable small group tours

I am very impressed with these tours and I have done 6 so far. When I book a stay in Singapore, I check Jane’s calendar for my next experience. The groups are small, the guides are well informed and the itineraries are well thought out. I have discovered an interest in places that I have previously walked past. I look forward to learning more about the varied parts of Singapore.

Not Your Average Tour...

I have been on many of Jane’s SG Tours and Events and every one has provided not just show and tell, but real insights into the architecture, the culture and the people. I have lived in Singapore for over 20 years and am well read about its history, but still find Jane’s Tour Guides provide me with insights and information of which I wasn’t previously aware. The research that is behind many of the activities is clearly immense and I particularly love hearing stories about the people who lived in the places we are seeing.
