Wonderful time with Tony, really really great. He was informative, lively, fun and flexible and wanted to share his Singapore and make it mine. He loves his city, and showed me the non-touristy places and hidden finds that make this city so much more interesting than just shopping. Oh, and he's a bit of a foodie, so I had some great food at places I wouldn't have found on my own.

Tony was a perfect guide and he lived up to our expectations. First, he was very thorough on his Singapore history and the expansion of the city through land reclamation. I really enjoyed viewing the city model, which displayed the future of Singapore. Second, the food part of the tour was simply AWESOME. I'm not a big eater and I had to push myself to the MAX. Great food and great history. I highly recommend taking a Tony Tan tour. He's awesome!
