PS is simply a wonderful human and has a deep passion and knowledge about Singapore. The content of the experience is also really interesting and for myself, someone quite intrigued by modern urbanism and housing, it was a really thoughtful exploration and a very enlightening way to explore a bit of Singapore outside of the tourist fluff. Thank you PS! - 25 Feb 2023

This tour was a joy. P S was such a great guide and listener, and so thoughtful as we were led through the various public housing projects; we even got a little peek inside one! Highly recommend for anyone curious about the buildings and designs around the island, and where to find some of Singapore’s best handmade, traditional pastries(: - 19 Feb 2023
