If you enjoy walking tour and captivating story telling.. this is a perfect experience for you. Me and my girl friends had so much fun! Wear comfortable shoes and outfit because it does get hot and humid

It was a really immersive experience, walking around the Jalan Besar area while imagining what it must've been like in the past. Also, the sets we visited were stunning! Really a memorable and super super worthwhile experience~

The immersive theatre experience was novel as this was the first time I've done something like this. Instructions in the audio were very clear, the story was well written, and the narration was engaging. Looking forward to other experiences with Oh! Open House!

Helpful Questions from Our Community

Q
Hi - My group is 5 adults + 2 kids. Can we still sign up for the New World's End? Can pls check? My child is 10 and 5 years old.
A
Hi Sarah, I'm afraid 5 years old is too young, we would recommend 16 years old for this experience
Q
What are the best walking tours in Singapore?
A
Check out our Top Picks above! We have curated our favourite ones that even us as locals absolutely love. Try the immersive self-guided walking tour that also doubles up as street theatre in Little India, or the walking tour with an ex-gangster in Chinatown! Kids will love the puzzle hunts - which are a self-guided way to find out cool facts about Singapore's neighbourhoods.
Q
Are the walking tours suitable for kids?
A
As long as kids are 3+, and able to walk for 2 hours or so, they'll be able to go on the walking tour and find it interesting!
