    Tourdescription About the audio tour

    Singapore is a young country but an old city. Beneath the tall skyscrapers and the shiny windows is a city that is almost 800 years old.

    In the next hour, we will explore the story of Singapore from kingdom to republic. But this is not a history tour. This is an adventure into the heart of Singapore city.

    All proceeds from this tour received by Zach will be donated to one of three local charities: Boys Town Singapore, Pertapis Children's Home and Canossaville Children's Home.
