Awesome William - Had a great time with William doing the tour. He spent just enough time explaining the markets and their history. Then it was time for the good which was awesome - he also made sure to point out highly recommended stalls to visit later. Can’t recommend the tour and William enough

Couldn't have asked for more - The tour was amazing, loads of food and our guide William was very knowledgeable and had lots to tell us about the food and Singapore. We didn't have to queue for any of the food which made the experience really enjoyable.

Very informative would recommend - Informative social and historical tour easily understandable and providing insights into the cultural fabric of Singapore. Along the way there is food from Chinatown’s hawkers and assorted other things. Food was ok with some favs but the history and way of life of every day Singaporeans was fascinating. A long tour but with lots of stops on the way including the bhudist temple Thank you Marcus and co

Avg. but will join again - Overall the tour is really nice, our guide Swee Lin shared wonderful history of Singapore, took us to 3 Hawkers Center. The durations and walking distances between each is just right. The only negatives thoughts were that each tasting plate was shared between 4-6 ppl and some dishes only comes w few pieces of protein so I didn’t get to try some of them. As wonderful as Swee Lin, it was loud so I can’t really hear her.
