This is a a live, engaging walking tour that includes stories of Singapore's people, multi-cultural, multi-religious society and the lives that Singaporeans live. The Singapore Story comes alive in the form of interesting personal accounts and experiences, and participants will be actively engaged during the tour.
Join me to learn more about the Singapore Story in this LIVE walking tour that promises to leave you tickled, and in awe as you are entertained with nuggets of interesting information about this fascinating island!

I was disappointed with the tour as it stayed within the same area for the first 30 minutes. Also, I had trouble easily understanding the speaker's accent. Due to the above, I left the Zoom tour early.

"very interesting and enjoyable. The technology is amazing. I was curious how he managed to live stream while walking and also screen share. Thanks for offering this type of programming."

Edwin did a great job of introducing us to his beautiful city, and provided lots of good background information at the same time.

Edwin was informative and charming! He suggested that we step into our best walking shoes as we toured Singapore City Center—it felt as if we had, but with none of the fatigue! Edwin not only pointed out important buildings, bridges, waterways and monuments along the way, but he relayed interesting information about each. As “we walked” between sites of interest, Ed answered questions and expanded on topics such as foods, language, religion and history. He is engaging, humorous and intelligent! We enjoyed learning about Singapore and would love to travel again with Edwin as our guide!

Edwin was a great tour guide. He not only showed me his city but he explained what I was seeing with cultural and historical context. Thank you for an beautiful and engaging tour.

My group took its first trip with Edwin, from Singapore as our guide. It was a small group and we got to ask him many questions which he answered to our satisfaction. Edwin was funny, he repeated himself to be sure we understood what he was saying. We are all looking forward to future trips!
