Get to know Singapore on a morning or afternoon half-day tour. You'll see all the city's highlights in one short tour perfect if your time is limited. Highlights include Singapore's vibrant Chinatown, colonial landmarks, Little India, a Teh Tarik (Pulled Tea) demonstration, sampling and the iconic, Merlion.
  • Orient yourself on a half-day tour of some of Singapore’s top attractions 
  • Save time by seeing a lot of Singapore in half a day
  • See the National Orchid Garden, where many city tours don’t stop
  • Pickup and drop-off from major hotels in Singapore and Sentosa 
What to Expect
After pickup from your hotel, begin your tour in Singapore’s Civic District, where you visit government buildings and landmarks. See Parliament House, the Cricket Club, and the National Gallery Singapore. Continue and stop for photo ops of Marina Bay and the Merlion (half-lion, half-fish) statue. Visit the Buddhist-Taoist temple of Thian Hock Keng, one of the oldest of its kind in the city, and drive through Chinatown. Your next stop is the National Orchid Garden, which is part of the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Stroll about tens of thousands of orchids. Make your last stop in the Little India neighborhood. Finish with a drop-off at the original departure point and ponder which places you’d like to return to on your own.

I don't Know. I signed up for the tour and in my confirmation I was given the name of the hotel for pick up. It was not my hotel, but very close by. No problem.
