I'm very excited to share to you what happened during my recent journey around ASEAN and I think it would only be appropriate to start with my Singapore adventures because this place is solo traveller friendly!
FAST FORWARD TO 2016: I have very good memories with this tour service that's why when I returned last February with my sister, who was visiting SG for the first time, I thought it would be great to avail the DUCK & HIPPO TOUR again so that somehow she can also experience the delight and excitement I had in the past!
Please note that there are many tour packages available. Depending on your needs, interests and timeframe, you just have to pick what suits you best. For this trip, my sister and I opted to availed the DUCK WITH SINGAPORE 7.
For this specific blog post, I'll highlight first our DUCK TOUR experience because I think it's a MUST for every first time visitors in Singapore. It will definitely give you different perspective of the Lion City!
For history buff like me, you’ll treasure the experience knowing that you got to ride in an actual war craft. Yes, the “Duck” is actually a remodelled Vietnamese amphibious vehicle which was used in World War 2.
The tour guide knows how to inject humour in his commentary which makes the tour more fun and lively. It’s mainly delivered in English but they also provide audio guides in different languages such as Japanese, Chinese, Koreans to make it easier for others to get the essential info and trivia too.
For this particular tour, I noticed that the Duck tour guide tried his best to speak other languages too which pleases the non-English speaking guests. :-)
If you’re not into selfie, do not worry. The Duck tour staff are very helpful in taking photos with the best view!
Overall, we get the BEST of both world when we availed the Duck Tour during our recent vacation in Singapore. For sure you’ll enjoy it too as much as we did. This amphibious thrill ride is definitely a MUST DO in Singapore especially if you are a first time visitor just like my sister who gave them a THUMBS UP!!!
I'm really delighted that I availed the DUCK & HIPPO TOUR services again and just like before, I had a pleasant experience. I’m very happy that my sister loved it too!
Just in case you noticed, I didn't really dwell on what you'll see when you take this tour because it's better for you to actually experience and see it for yourself! Besides, Singapore is rapidly changing and based from my experience, from 2010 to present, even the Duck Tour itinerary changed for the better! So yeah, Go! Try it and don't hesitate to try it all over again!
For a quick overview of where you'll go and what you'll see, this map will be useful to you. I got it from https://www.ducktours.com.sg/duck.php where you can also check the latest updates about this tour service.
When I was checking for the updated tour details, I find their website very helpful especially with their FAQs and online booking with Paypal payment options. I highly recommend you check their Facebook Page DUCK & HIPPO for their special promos.
