Singapore LAYOVER TOUR
If you have 6-hours or more between flights make the most of your time and book a Singapore Layover Tour. You will be whisked from Singapore’s Changi Airport into the city in less than 30 minutes. Ride a Bumboat down the Singapore River, admire the view from the top of Marina Bay Sands, explore the spice and gold markets of Little India, cool off at Gardens By The Bay, eat like a local at the Hawker Centre or maybe have a Singapore Sling at the Raffles Hotel. It sure beats sitting in the airport, doesn’t it! Simply add an airport pick up when booking.
Maximise your limited amount of time.
Pick-up at Changi Airport Singapore.
Available as a Walking or Car Tour.
Our Singapore stopover tour is available day and night allowing you to make the most of your short time in Singapore. Choose between an immersive Private Walking Tour, and travel-like-a-local on the world class public transport system, and a Private Car Tour. Whichever option you choose we will ensure that you make the most of your limited time.
We can combine some of the must see’s like the Singapore River cruise and Gardens By The Bay with something a little more off the beaten track to ensure that you see Singapore for what it really is; a melting pot of cultures and flavours. It is a city which has seen unprecedented growth, a city which competes on the global playing field despite its tiny size. It has been beautifully designed with the intention not just to be ‘green’, but to be a City in a Garden. It is a city where efficiency, style, gastronomies and cultures meet like no other. Make sure you don’t fill up on aeroplane food, Singapore is a food lovers paradise. How about visiting to one of the worlds cheapest Michelin Star restaurants on your Singapore layover tour?
We suggest starting your tour from the airport arrivals one hour after flight arrival time. This allows for enough time for you to get off the plane and pass through immigration. If you would like some extra time to freshen up after landing add an extra 30 mins on.
If you book our walking tour you will taxi back to the airport solo (your guide will organise the taxi for you). We suggest finishing your Singapore stopover tour 1.5 to 2 hours before the onward flight. This allows enough time for getting back to the Airport (30 minutes by taxi) and getting back through security to your gate. Most flights start boarding 30 minutes before take off.
The above timings are generous if you are already checked in for your onward flight and do not have to collect luggage and check in again. If you are taking the Private Car Tour option we will drop you back off at the airport. We suggest finishing your tour at the airport drop off 1 hour to 1.5 hours before your onward flight. If you have luggage you can use the left luggage facilities at Changi Airport or if you are taking the Car Tour option you can bring it with you.
All prices listed are in US$ and are the total price for the tour.
