Excellent tour The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and assisted a member of my group to find the details of a family member lost in WW2, at Kranji War Memorial. We had hoped to find reference to this but with his help had located the relative within minutes, a very emotional experience. The tour also visited Sambawang to take lunch which was a wonderful surprise for me as I was able to see places where my family lived and told stories of but I had no recollection of, due to my very young age. My family group believe this to be a highly recommended tour and we have some wonderful memories which link us to our past.
