"Last night I had an enjoyable evening on the Clarke Quay Walk led by Pauline. She gave us a great tour, explaining the cultural and historical background of Clarke Quay.  She was full of Singaporean history and clearly loved sharing her knowledge with us.  She also made sure that we received the appropriately discounted drinks at the different pubs we stopped at, and she patiently stayed on after the tour for a very entertaining evening.
If I have time before I leave Singapore, I will definitely take another Singapore Walk with your company. Thanks!"
- Charles Paule 
 
Tour Synopsis
The wizened storyteller lit his last joss-stick as the coolies waited with bated breath. The end was drawing near. You can almost see the ghosts of the old river behind the surreal, glitzy façade of Clarke Quay. Go deep into the trendiest stretch in town.  Who was the 'unqualified' architect responsible for all early colonial buildings? Or the shrewd diplomat-tycoon who eyed profits from ice but was just ahead of his time. Hear about the 'tin rush' that was as mad as the one for gold. And the sad story of the guardian who lost his world to the cruel tides of change. Swig this and more at trendy breweries where 'mash' is anything but the humble potato.
