We were unable to get back into Changi as the airport security would not allow us in. Really really disappointed and annoyed. After an hour they finally allowed us back in - this tour not recommended for anyone wanting to tak e an onward flight

Yes these tours are free so I guess something is better than nothing. But bear in mind to do these tours you now need to go through full immigration checks both in and out. For us that meant 25 minutes to enter Singapore and 20 minutes to re-enter the airport just to do the tour. Incredibly slow…I’ll never criticise the... More

We had a 9 hour layover at Changi Airport and were offered to go on a free city tour. We did the evening tour. Just amazing! Saw more than we bargained for, including the light and sound show at Gardens on the Bay. The tour guide was very professional with a great sense of humour. Highly recommended...

I love that Singapore offers this 2 hour tour for long layovers. Signing up was easy at the booth at the airport and they were really organized in getting us through customs. Although we get such a limited time, it's a great intro to Singapore. Our guide, Go, was funny and informative. Singapore itself is beautiful and very interesting. I... More

I was so looking forward to doing the free transit tour. However we were yelled and abused by the guide on the 26 April 2.30pm heritage tour. She proceeded to shout at the tour group the whole way round. Telling us we would have to catch a cab back to the airport if we late. She refused to stop at... More

The tour took me about 2,5 hours on Free Singapore Tour Bus. Easy to book tour at the booth in the transit area in Terminal 2, Changi Airport. The also gave me a free bag from Trip Advisor, very nice.

The free Singapore Tour is well worth the effort if you have a long wait for your connecting flight. We had an 8 hour wait for our connection to Australia and it was good to get out of the airport and look around. The tour bus makes two stops in Singapore 1) Gardens by the Bay, Bay South which is...

Certainly worth doing one of these trips, we had a stopover of nearly 12 hours although a room had been provided by SIA. I believe you can only choose 1 due to the fact you can only enter Singapore once as a transit passenger. I do feel ours was cut short to just over an hour, probably hour and a... More
