During the eight day tour you’ll also visit the Singapore Botanic Gardens and National Orchid Gardens, enjoy breakfast at the world famous Singapore Zoo, high tea at the iconic Raffles Hotel, visit the National Museum of Singapore plus experience the exciting sights and sounds of Sentosa Island including the S.E.A Aquarium. 

We have also included a visit to the Marina Bay Sands Hotel where you can view Singapore from the Sands SkyPark Observation Deck, soaring 57 levels above the heart of the city. From here we take in the stunning Marina Bay, the world-class cityscape, the architectural wonders of Supertree Grove, and the vibrant colours characteristic of Gardens by the Bay.

There is time for leisure or to explore further afield, shop ‘til you drop or lie by the pool. We’d love to have you join us in this beautiful multi-cultural city and its fabulous gardens.

Most of the cities and towns visited on this program can be explored by coach, where walking tours are relatively short and generally on the flat and all hotels have lifts with easily accessible rooms.
All our programs naturally involve some walking in order to discover better the places visited and, although we arrange porterage where this is available, participants are expected to be able to handle their own bags. Our program leaders will always try to make as much of the program as possible available for those who find walking longer distances, uphill or down steps difficult but, in same places, this cannot always be avoided.

If you have any concerns at all about your level of fitness, please do not hesitate to talk to us and discuss further with the experts who know the particular demands of each program.
