Guide profile:

If you are looking for a licensed tour guide who doesn't just do a good job at tour guiding, but do it with a PASSION;

If you are looking for a tour guide who can HUMOR you and ENTERTAIN you with stories about the island-state of Singapore;

If you are pressed for time and would like a GOOD OVERVIEW of the country and yet get GOOD INSIGHTS of Singapore from its economy, governance, history, to its people and culture;

If you are a senior, physically-challenged or visiting Singapore with young children, and are looking for someone who have experience handling these groups and who takes good care of his tourists,

Then SEARCH NO FURTHER. You have come to the right profile.

I have been a volunteer guide/conservationist with the Singapore Zoo for over 15 years and as a volunteer guide with the Singapore's National Parks Board for over 10 years. As a result of my involvements with these two organisations, I realised I enjoy sharing information with people and that is how I decided to apply for a Tourist Guide Licence. I successfully received my licence more than 10 years ago and since then, I have been conducting tours. Most of my clients are from the US, with the rest from India, the UK, Germany, Poland, Australia, Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand.

So, if you are looking for:

A knowledgeable & certified guide

One who is humourous and entertaining

And who can customised tour packages for you,

then give me a buzz or drop me an email!

We all thoroughly enjoyed our time with you as our guide. You took us to all of the places we had indicated we wanted to see and more. Breakfast at the zoo and the zoo itself was wonderful. The city tour was very thorough and informative. We were impressed with your professionalism and your knowledge of the city and it's history. You were an exceptional tour guide and we would highly recommend you to others. If we get back to Singapore we will definitely want you as our tour guide again.
