I read about this tour on trip advisor and it definitely did not disappoint! Our tour guide is very knowledgeable and it does gives you a very good understanding of the history of a particular moment when the British is fighting against the Japanese in WW2. Do note that the tour has specific start timings, so check out their website in advice to plan the arrival times!

Excellent place to come to understand the circumstances of how WW2 was brought on to Singapore, and what happens when you underestimate your enemy. The guides are fantastic and point they deliver will fascinate you.

I must say that this tour surpasses all my expectations and it’s conducted in such a great standard by our tour guide Nancy. The Battle of Singapore history came alive as we went through room by room and watched the amazing re-enactment of major historical scenes. I learnt a great knowledge during the 1.5 hour tour. The pace was done very well and time flies so fast! It’s air conditioned inside so don’t worry about feeling stuffy at all. Taking photos and videos inside is not allowed so here’s a photo of the entrance. This tour is so worth it so don’t miss it guys!

For anybody interested in the period from the initial invasion of what was at the time Malay by the Japanese to the conclusion of that invasion only a matter of weeks later this tour is a must.
Our guide was one of the most enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides that I have ever come across. He was ex Singapore Army with the rank of Sergeant and his knowledge of the campaign was, as you would expect, extensive.
The command centre is extensive, consisting of some 29 rooms or thereabouts with some period equipment, numerable cameos and films taken at the time depicting the run up to events on the final day of the battle when the decision to surrender was taken.
Clearly from the British point of view it was a total shambles from beginning to end with a lack of equipment, resources and adequate prior planning the overriding factors.
This was all clearly presented and it was very much a case of 'all of us' versus the Japanese.
Leaving the tour left you with a very sad feeling that we let down not only ourselves but also all of the people of Malay and Singapore. We knew a fair bit about this period of history but learnt a great deal more on the tour.
One not to be missed.
