Singapore – Footsteps of Raffles

Join us sightseeing in Singapore on this Footsteps of Raffles tour. The tour starts where it all began – at Raffles Landing Site – where Sir Stamford Raffles is believed to have first stepped ashore in 1819. We then explore an exhibition that traces the history of the Singapore River.

Next stop is Raffles Hotel Singapore, a famed haunt of high-society since the 1800s. Here we enjoy Raffles Hotel afternoon tea with English and local delicacies.

After your afternoon tea at Raffles Hotel, we board a Bumboat and cruise along the historic Singapore River and disembark at Clarke Quay. Here you will visit a Pewter Gallery to discover the history of pewter and role of tin in the development of Singapore as a trading port.

PLEASE NOTE: From July 2017, Raffles Hotel is undergoing a programme of refurbishment works and this optional excursion will not be available until the work is finished.

happy with our service

  • The organisation and communication were first class. The flexibility in travelling to the destination was impressive and the hotels where we stayed  in were all of a good standard. Our Coach was driven by Ken, who was a character and nothing was too much for him.

  • We both enjoyed the Magnificent New Zealand holiday immensely. The Coach Driver/Tour Guide was excellent and the hotels were really comfortable. The holiday was extremely good value and I would recommend it to anyone waning to taste the Antipodean holiday experience.
