Srivijaya. Anglo-Dutch. Colonization. These words have something in common and might ring familiar to some of us. That's because they all appear in children's history textbooks. Allow this history to pop out of the pages as you take an immersive journey along The Singapore River, following the footsteps of Sir Stamford Raffles and learn about his contributions to Singapore. This tour covers topics in the Primary 3/4 MOE syllabus, such as Srivajaya and Colonialism. During this engaging and eye-opening walk, you will learn about the series of events that led to the colonization of Singapore and how it impacted the nation's development through stories and even role-playing! This programme is suitable for children 7 years old and above and is a great way for pupils to enrich their MOE syllabus. Daily time slots available at the timings listed below. Please indicate when booking your preferred time and we will do our best to accommodate you. Session 1: 9am to 11am Session 2: 2pm to 4pm Session 3: 5pm to 7pm

Our guide Robin is very knowledgeable and we had a fun time learning from him. The boat ride was enjoyable too.

Great tour! The Kampong was really fun to explore... rich in history and lots of interesting plants. Our guide, Kyanta Yap was very professional and knowledgeable. He catered to our interests and kept it very engaging for my 10 year old. Highly recommend the experience, particularly since the Kampong is on private land and we would not have been able to access such a meaningful experience there otherwise.
