Chinatown and the related stories of early Chinese migrants are the mainstays of this tour. Immerse in the architectural splendor of Singapore’s famed ethnic quarter. See Singapore’s oldest temple, the Thian Hock Keng Temple, dedicated to Ma Zu, Goddess of the Sea. Next, we hop over to the heart of Chinatown to visit the beautiful Sri Mariamman Temple. From there, walk along the conservation shophouses' five-foot way to explore medical halls, wood carving shops and tea houses. Here, you can sample some classic toast – local style – at a great coffee shop. This is a great way to see the most of Singapore within 3 hours. What's more, this flavourful tour is fully guided, promising an engaging and interactive experience - the only way to truly enjoy Singapore!

What are the timings of the tours?

The Chinatown Trolley Tour departs at 2:30pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays while the Little India Trolley Tour departs at 2:30pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Additional tours may be added depending on demand. Please check with our crew onsite for latest timings.

Where do the Trolley Tours depart from?

The boarding point of the Classic Trolley Tours is at Suntec Tourist Hub (#01-330). We strongly recommend that visitors check in at least 30 minutes prior to tour time.

Is the Trolley air-conditioned?

Yes and no! The trademark Trolley vehicle includes both air-conditioned and open-air sections – a truly special feature that befits this unique tour. For a scenic view or great photo opportunities, feel free to lounge on the outside. In between on-foot segments of the tour, guests can seek respite from the heat within the carriage.

What happens if it rains?

The Classic Trolley Tours are rain or shine programmes, which means we will proceed as planned in the event of rain. Guests are strongly encouraged to bring an umbrella for the tours. Otherwise, ponchos are available for sale at our Hub.

Is this a sit-in coach tour?

No. More than just a sit-in coach tour, you’ll not only get to move around in this specially-themed vehicle, more importantly, you’ll be exploring the grounds on foot. Expect to get up close to the iconic architectural marvels and sample the ethnic delicacies Singapore is famous for. You will spend an equal amount of time on board and outdoors.

Will we get to walk off on our own?

This is a 3-hour fully guided tour, meaning your guide will be there with you every step of the way to offer in-depth explanations of the attractions, answer your questions and be your photographer for the day. He/she is also there to ensure that guests do not get lost in the ethnic quarters as the area may be difficult for tourists to navigate. If you wish to leave the tour group and move off on your own, it is done with the understanding that you’ll be forfeiting the rest of the tour without any refund.

Can I just hop on?

The trolley is not a hop-on, hop-off tour; instead, it is fully guided and will move around in fixed groups. For the free and easy hop-on hop-off experience, please check out Singapore 7 Sightseeing.

Can I change my tour date after booking is made?

Sure! We are happy to change your tour date (after booking has been made) but please note that due to limited capacity, seats are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
