Derrick Koh Private tour guide in Singapore City - Singapore

Derrick Koh

Guide profile:

As a Singaporean blessed with international exposure to many cultures from 20 years spent in the corporate world and friends across the globe, I have travelled both as a tourist and business executive to many countries and encountered the best and worst of experiences, so I know what a visitor wants and eschew cookie-cutter itineraries. If you want a humourous guide who grew up in Singapore, communicates well, is passionate and knowledgeable about his country and cultures, look no further! The experience you take home with you matters most to me - so I will always strive to meet your needs as much as I can. Bespoke tours are my speciality so if you want to enjoy Singapore like a local, choose to be guided by a fun, local, friendly and professional licensed guide who speaks well and is AED certified.

Derrick was all you wish for in a tour guide - passionate, knowledgeable and extremely friendly/easy going. In one full day tour he showed us many highlights of Singapore and many places we could return to in the days to follow. We were a group of two families with children aged 10-14 and Derrick was able to keep them interested and entertained at all times too. If it wasn't for Derrick we would have missed out on so many wonderful places to see (and taste) in Singapore - best start to our trip.

Derrick was totally extraordinary. His knowledge of the history of Singapore, local foods, the many different temples important to the diversity of religions in the city and his ability to design a private tour experience that met our needs was excellent. We spent two days with him and our experiences met every expectation. His communication skills were top notch. We couldn't have asked for anything more!

Tour Guide Comment: Donna and Cindy treated me more like a new friend than a guide. That made me really want to make their experience memorable and go beyond their expectations. They were also very easy to talk to, warm and genuine people. It was my privilege to have shared the best of my country with them. I truly hope they enjoy the rest of their stay in Singapore.

Derrick is everything that you read in his bio and more. Personable, knowledgeable and thorough, Derrick provided an excellent tour of Singapore on our long layover period (20 hours). We can wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who can be lucky enough to book with him!

Tour Guide Comment: Mark and Susan are THE visitors that make a guide's job a breeze - engaging, polite and curious. They trusted my recommendations and we spent a meaningful day together. I'd love for the Morrows to return to Singapore and spend more time in my beautiful country - come back soon with the clan, guys! :)
