Nice tour that gives a good overview of Peranakan people. Good museum that is visited and some authentic food was served....
A nice little tour Food was lovely and learning about the food was great Overall pretty good but a little bit too much history for younger children but they certainly...
This was an interesting and well planned tour with just the right balance of information and first hand experiences. I was looking for a glimpse into real Singaporean culture...
