Its a real shame there is no 7 or 8 star to click. Karen was the best tour guide today. Very articulate with her knowledge on the history of Singapore, very helpful, and we covered many areas of the city not to mention the 57th floor Marina Bay Sands hotel city view lookout! Cheers Karen!!

Karen made our trip to Singapore a fabulous adventure. She was amazing; helpful, thoughtful, funny and super informative.

We never imagined there was so much to see in Singapore and couldn't have asked for a better guide. I can highly recommend her and if we are back in Singapore again we will be booking another tour.

5 stars Graham E. 31 Mar 2018

5 stars Ron S. 19 Jan 2018

Never been to Singapore? We spent a day with Karen, January 2018. From the very first contact to the end of the day when we said farewell, it was more than we expected. Her vast knowledge of Singapore history and cultures gave us a great day walking the backstreets of Chinatown, Little India and the Colonial district. Used subway and taxis. It was a great adventure for us (markets, restaurants, dim sum ,temples and shopping) I highly recommend this delightful person for a real Singapore tour

5 stars Mike Z. 15 Jan 2018

Karen was a terrific host. Very knowledgeable and kind. She knows the people and places worth seeing.

5 stars Roman J. 08 Jan 2018

We had a fantastic variety-rich 7-hour private tour with Karen. She is very knowledgeable in history, geography, sightseeing and shopping and taught and showed us incredibly much for the seven hours we had with her, unfortunately by far not enough time. Thank you Karen. One day we will be back to learn more from you about Singapore.

Tour Guide Comment: Hello Roman (towkay)! :-) Thank you for your kind review! I hope you had a good flight home and please send my best regards to 'mum' :-) Looking forward to have you in Singapore again.

5 stars Olivier A. 28 Dec 2017

Karen was the absolutely perfect tour guide for our family! We loved her and so did our 9 year old twin daughters. We had a whole daytrip with her and learned a lot about Singapore and its inhabitants, culture, architectural designs, different parts of the city, etc... She was very knowledgeable and had an answer to all of our questions. She even brought local toys and sweets for the girls. Just adorable. We can highly recommend a daytrip with Karen. Thanks again, Karen! Olivier

Tour Guide Comment: Hello Olivier! Thank you for your kind words, I had the most awesome day out with your lovely family and I missed your girls! Hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip and please send my love to everyone! :-)

5 stars Afnan A. 18 Oct 2017

Karen was punctual, informative, kind and simply AMAZING! I was touring with my mother and mother-in-law and both are 60+ years old; so she was tolerant and patient with our slow pace. She had loads of information to fit into this one day, but as I told her, it will definitely not be the last time we see each other! Thank you Karen for everything :)

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you, Afnan, for your kind words! You ladies are very dear, and so fun! Thank you for giving me the chance to show you around. Please send my best regards to your lovely family, and take great care, till we meet again. :-)

5 stars Jason S. 06 Oct 2017

Karen was FANTASTIC!!!

Her punctuality, knowledge of Singapore and flexibility in taking me to various cultural and historical areas of the city were very much appreciated. I would highly recommend her tour guide services when you are travelling thru.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you, Jason! I hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in Singapore and come back soon! :-)

5 stars Peter W. 01 Aug 2017

Great Tour about Singapore showing Old Street, Sky Garden and Palace with "Ugly" Tree. Very unique way of tour guide with jump-in questions, and impressed by Karen's knowledge and passion. Best ever had. Thanks Karen.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you, Peter, for giving me the opportunity to share different sides of Singapore with you. :-)

5 stars Terri W. 14 Jul 2017

Karen was fantastic! Not only is she absolutely adorably sweet, she is funny and so knowledgeable about Singapore. She is proud to have been born and raised there and to show off her beautiful city and its historical roots. We gave Karen a tough task of exploring the city in a day while teaching us history that will also interest 19 and 17 year old teenagers. One who was celebrating his birthday on tour day. She had a tall order and passed with flying colors. We highly recommend Karen to all!

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you for your kind words, Terri! You & your beautiful family was great fun, and I have learnt much from all of you too! I presume you are safely home and well-settled. :-) Thank you again for giving me the chance to show you around. I'm sorry for the wet weather but hope each of you retain sweet memories of Singapore and Asia! Take good care!

Karen Zhengs tour was just fantastic. She's a very happy and pleasant person and her knowledge on everything Singapore gave us the start we were hoping to get for our short stay in this beautiful city. We would highly recommend Karen's tour and would even hire her again if we were to return.

Karen is an outstanding guide in everyway. We have had many guides of the years and can say Karen truly shines. She possesses outstanding communication skills. Her knowledge can only be rated as outstanding as well. Karen is very personable and so willing to please. We contacted her several times during our pre-trip planning stages. She always responded quickly, thoughtfully and informatively. We can recommend Karen most highly. We will be using her when we return in the future.

Tour Guide Comment: Dear Martin & Anita, thank you for your kind words. It was my pleasure to be able to spend a great day with both of you and we were so, so lucky! I'm looking forward to meeting both of you again! :)

Karen made me feel very welcome in my first day in Singapore. She was punctual, fun, well-informed and made it very positive experience from the first minute we met, till the last minute we said goodbye. As such, also a very good promotion for viator expert tour guides as this was my first try-out

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you, Marcia, for the kind comment! I hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Singapore and had a fulfilling trip! Do keep in touch! :-)
