This was our favorite trip. Learned a lot about Singapore and the people. Food was good but different. They even dressed me up as a Peranakan. Great!Reviewed by: Susan G, United Kingdom, June 2009
Loved this tour - it was brilliant. I have visited Singapore many times but had not heard of the Peranaken Museum. The shophouse we visited was wonderful. The hosts were gracious and could not have been more welcoming. Definitely recommend this tour for a small insight into the real Singapore and its history.Reviewed by: KATHLEEN D, Australia, March 2009

Very interesting afternoon seeing the Singapore of the Singaporeans. Excellent, definitely recommend.Reviewed by: Maureen H, Australia, October 2006
We had a bad start to this tour as the scheduled pick-up from our hotel was late arriving, and there was chaos and confusion because 'the office had made a mistake.' We were therefore late starting the tour and it became rather rushed which was a shame as it was very interesting and we would have liked more time in the Peranakan Museum.
We also visited the Spice Garden, and a lovely Peranakan lady called Doris who demonstrated the preparation of a typical
food and then we were able to try some of the foods. We enjoyed the tour very much in spite of the inauspicious start.
