1) Trip is definitely not value for money. Guide is nice, but can’t tell if he is knowledgeable or not as he spend 2/3 of the time talking about his personal experiences, and at 2 of the stops he only talked about his own experience, for about 15, 20 mins each. 2) Despite of all that, the actual tour is less than 2 hours, not much information provided and covered. A bit disappointing and a waste of time.

We express our deepest gratitude to our guide, Notle, for sharing his incredible life story. He is very knowledgeable in the history of Singapore and has a unique way of reenacting certain historical events. There were two teenagers with us to whom Notle addressed directly warning against straying from the right path. His genuine openness and regrets about mistakes made in the past have really touched us. Congratulations to Notle for obtaining the guide qualifications from Singapore Tourism Board which is not easy! The food was fantastic and served immediately as we came in. Not only is the tour value for money but it also supports a great cause of giving a new lease of life to people who have served their sentence and are looking for legal ways of earning income. Bravo, Notle! Highly recommended!
