We took the Hippo Bus Tour today in Singapore. We did the Blue Line, Yellow And Red Line. Started early in the morning and covered most of the high lights of an amazing country. The commentary was very clear with the head phones. The buses were clean and the places of interest were awesome. You can get on and off where ever you want and pick up the bus later on. Highly recommend this Hippo Bus Tour. Especially, if you have limited time in Singapore.

Highly recommended tour to take. Only 60 minutes of tour but including commuting and waiting time, allocate 2 hours. Our tickets included a free bus (double-decker open roof) ride from Orchard to the boarding venue.

The mid morning weather was perfect and the views were superb.

The guide was fluent and knowledgeable. Plenty of useful and beneficial tips were shared for tourists. He was up-to-date on the attractions too.

Did this tour for a day and having already been to some of the places visited it was a good ending of the sightseeing part of the journey.
One can choose/join 7 different lines, which also intersect, every now and then enabling one to switch between lines. Very convenient and one can make more use of the time as well.
On the whole I can recommend this tour but the Duck and Hippo do have to step up and service their buses better. Some of the audio plugins on the double decker busses do not work and the bus we rode on line 5 to Sentosa Island was impossible. There was no audio at all for any of the guests and many seats were broken, the backrest part of the seats falling down in to the laps of the guest behind you, once you meant to sit back and relax. Not acceptable.

The weather was inclement during or just before the start of our tour. Our Tour Guide did a lot to help us. e.g trying to secure some loan umbrellas so we could get down and around at the stops. However she did not manage to secure any.

As such we proposed to her that we could just stay in the bus and she could just proceed with her commentary, but she felt uneasy with our request even when the bus was just filled with my group of 4 pax and also forwarded the request to captain Ong to see if he could agree our request.

When we all told her we are agreeable with what i have proposed, she finally agreed. She also told us if the weather condition improves we shall get down from the bus bus and proceed as per normal.

The most important part of the whole tour was that she made sure she treated us as tourist even though she knows that we are local Singaporeans. Her Commentary during the tour was very interesting compared to other tour guides of which i experienced during my school days.

In summary My group would like to thanks Tour Guide Kelly & Captain Ong for their pleasant services rendered that day. I am also sure they have given their best to other groups.

Best Regards

Using the Duck & Hippo bus service is a great way to see Singapore. We purchased a 3 day ticket, for a short visit this was the best way to see the city. Sat on the top deck of an open topped bus was going in the tropical heat. Sit at the back under canvas cover if it feels like it might rain. There is a commentary and you can hop off the bus at any point. There are several routes enabling you to see all the points of interest in the city. Recommended.
