Private Tours vs Group Tours
There are so many different ways it can be done when it comes to traveling and sightseeing. Group tours can be a good option for those on a tight budget, whereas some travelers might want to go it alone, without any tour guide.
This might feel adventurous but can be super stressful, plus there’s a risk of missing some really great stuff without the knowledge of a local tour guide!

At ForeverVacation, we truly believe that private tours are the best way to experience a new country and get a feel of the real culture. There are so many benefits to going down the private tour route. Here are just a few:
1. Total freedom and flexibility
On a group tour, there will be a schedule with set stops and meal breaks that everyone has to follow. But with a private tour, you can do as you please!
Stop at the places you want to see and skip over any you’d rather not. You can also be flexible, so if you happen upon something that looks interesting and you want to explore, you can!
2. Explore at your own pace
The schedules that must be followed on group tours come with time limits at each stop. You’ll get an hour or 2 to explore before you have to be back on your bus by a certain time.
With private tours, this doesn’t apply as you’ll have your own private car and driver so you can spend as little or as much time as you like at each stop. If you like to spend hours sampling local dishes at local restaurants - you can!
Or maybe you want to pack as many stops as you can into the time you have - go for it! Private tours give you complete control over your time and how you use it.
3. Exclusive local knowledge
At ForeverVacation, all of our lovely tour guides are locals who know the area well and have most likely lived there their whole lives. Having a local tour guide all to yourself means you get an insight into the real culture of the place, and our guides will be more than happy to share their local expertise with you!
They’ll take you to the best local restaurants and hidden attractions that you may not have been able to discover otherwise! This gives you a truly unique and authentic experience.
Our Best Selling Tour
- Singapore Old New Tiong Bahru Estate Walking Tour
Our Singapore Old New Tiong Bahru Estate Walking Tour gives you a chance to see the country's oldest residential neighborhood, making it one of our most historically rich private tours in Singapore! Dive headfirst into the background of this charming area, with architecture existing pre and post-war, the last remaining air raid shelter and stunning wall murals - you won't find these sights anywhere else in the country! You'll also get the chance to taste some local cuisine and stroll through 'the wet market', so you can get an authentic taste of this hidden gem. If you're planning some excursions in Singapore and you wanted a true experience that's not aimed at tourists, then we'd highly recommend this for you!
All kinds of tours have their place and it depends on your preference. But we think these are some great reasons to choose a private tour.
Plus, having your own personal car (with air con - this makes a HUGE difference in hotter countries, trust me!) and tour guide for the day will make you feel like a VIP.
And who doesn’t want to feel special when they’re on vacation?
