It was a glimpse into the real lives of Singaporeans.
It was a valuable experience that I could not have had in a tourist resort.
The view from the rooftop was breathtaking. - 30 Nov 2023

About 80% of Singapore's public housing, you can politely explain in English with a tour that you can learn more about Singaporean living, annual income, and property prices.It was very good. - 04 Nov 2023

I’ve taken a decent number of experiences through Airbnb. This is quite clearly the best I’ve ever had. What I learned and experienced during this tour hugely enhanced my trip to Singapore. The tour guide is clearly very passionate about the topic, and spared no effort to give us a new wants to understanding of the social and historical aspects of Singapore as it relates to housing. She did a fabulous job interacting with my kids as well as myself, and made the entire experience extremely enjoyable. This was not simply a tour where we had a bit of an overview of tourist sites. Rather, this was a deep dive into a very important aspect of the development of Singapore over the last 40 years and more. When my family saw this Airbnb experience listed, we thought it was something a bit different and a higher cut above what we were used to with other tours. Our feeling was absolutely correct. I can’t possibly recommend this tour more highly. When I return to Singapore, I will very likely do it again. - 20 Jun 2023

Our entire family enjoyed PS's tour of public housing in Singapore.
We had already done some research on Singapore's public housing, but we still had many questions.
PS was able to answer all of our questions.
PS is obviously very knowledgable about public housing in Singapore.
Thank you for the tour PS, we all learnt a lot! - 20 Jun 2023
