Had an amazing guide, knowledgeable and very well prepared. Even made the effort to ensure everyone was familiar with the kayak before heading off. A definite thumbs up!

Darren is a fabulous guide who made this excursion so special and memorable for my son who is obsessed with WW2. We were so lucky and wanted to spend the whole day doing this excursion! Thanks for showing a different side of Singapore!

We loved our trip with Darren to visit the Labrador Park gun batteries and the hidden side of Mount Faber. He was super friendly and engaging and had a great grasp of Singaporean history and culture. We also liked that he has an urban planning background and was able to answer our questions not only about where Singapore has come from - but where it might be going in the future! Would highly recommend this tour with Darren. Thanks again!

Kayak to Local Oyster Farm & Ubin's Hidden WW2 Site (Private Trip)
18 Mar 2021
Probably the most unique tour with the best guide in Singapore for nature lovers. We could enjoy the serenity of the flooded forests (timing with the tide) and rivers of ubin. Only birds, water and our kayaks. We just met a handful of kayakers and people on SUP ... where else do you have this peace in SG? Darren takes care of everything you need and more. I got excited every time he opened his bag: snacks, isotonic drinks, frozen grapes & many more came and random, but perfect times. OYSTERS grown in Singapore, fresh from the farm (where we picked them up) are consumed on the kayak, surrounded by the mangroves ... can it get better? Darren was extremely knowledgeable on plants, birds and beyond ... never a dull moment!
