What are the benefits of a private tour?
There are so many that it’s hard to quantify, but here’s a few major benefits: 1) the tour is customized for your interests, which means you get to see and do the things you’re most interested in. 2) you’re not running on a fixed daily schedule, which means you have flexibility to stay as long as you want or move on early from something or even skip it altogether if that’s what you decide on the spot. 3) We’re able to design the activities at popular sights to avoid the crowds!
Can you drink water from a tap?
Yes, tap water is safe to drink in Singapore–the only country in SE Asia that can say that! Water quality standards are quite high.
Is it possible to use my mobile phone from North America in Singapore?
Yes, 4G connectivity is very good in Singapore. Some plans, like T-Mobile allow for free unlimited data internationally, though it is usually at a 2g speed. However, that’s often good enough for texts and emails and some browsing. Most providers allow for purchase of high-speed international plans.
What electrical adapters are needed?
The power outlets in Singapore are the square-pin, UK style. However, most 4 and 5-star hotels in Singapore have international outlets that will accept most US-style 2-prong plugs. If not, they likely will loan you an adapter. However, the voltage is 240 volts, 50 Hz, so be sure your electronic devices can handle that. Most can!
