Singapore is a multicultural masterpiece, small in size but not limited in what it has to offer. Given its compactness, a hop on hop off tour is a great option to navigate the city and get orientated in this breathtaking city-state. From its sky-scraping architecture to its embellished gardens and eclectic food, there is no easy way to decide where to go first when you reach Singapore. The buses provide convenient and all-encompassing access to many corners of the city to make sure you don’t miss a thing!
Below you’ll find our pick of three tours that we think you’ll love, with our choice based on a combination of pricing and former guest reviews. We hope you feel suitably inspired to hop aboard and begin exploring this eastern gem.
