This is a detailed overview of the fall of Singapore in WWII from the first aerial bombardment on the 8th December 1941 to the surrender on the 15th February 1942. Superior Japanese tactics as well as the early destruction of British naval and then air power is well described. Accurate reproductions of situation rooms, audiovisuals and description by an excellent guide made this a worthwhile tour.
Great tour, really informative, interesting, and so evocative to stand where the decisions were actually made. Horace was a great tour guide and he really made the whole experience come alive. Totally recommend this tour!
Horace the narrator was great. An interesting historical review. My wife also enjoyed it as it was not physically taxing. Taxi driver had trouble finding location. Staff called taxi after the tour and were very gracious
A great tour that provided real insights into the fall of Singapore. We found it of particular interest as our fathers were there on 15 February 1942 and thus became a POW of the Japanese.
Having a tour to suit ones own requirements when you are new to a city is excellent. To top that my guide Nicolas was so knowledgable and a great friendly personality.
