So it’s the days between Christmas and New Year, and this song is running around my head “Mum and dad can hardly wait for school to start again…” So if you are looking for entertainment during the holidays, read on.
What to expect on the Monster Day Tour
We met John the Magician, our walking tour guide, at the Siloso Point cable car station on Sentosa Island at 3 pm. Surprisingly the walk was not too hot as there was the rainforest canopy to keep us coolish, and part of the tour was hosted inside, where there was air conditioning to cool down. We did bring umbrellas but lucky for us, there was no rain, but living in Singapore, it’s always good to keep one handy.
Initially, we did not know what to expect, but John greeted us warmly, told us where the other participants were, and let us know there was time to get water or refresh. The tour comprised two families with three kids between 7 and 13 and, not including us, two adults.
The tour was broken up into seven stages, and we stopped at every step to learn some history or local wildlife and always a magic trick or two.
We started with the tour’s first magic trick; John was funny and clever, engaging everyone, especially the kids, asking them little questions to make them feel comfortable and happy to be there. We started the coastal walk into the jungle, where he introduced us to the local wildlife with another magic trick. The tricks were entertaining, and the children and adults enjoyed the afternoon.
Called Pulau Blakang Mati initially, now Sentosa Island, it was rife with pirates and home to a large rock named Dragon Tooth, where you can find a replica of the original stone on the coastal trail.
Sentosa was also home to several theme parks, which paved the way for Universal Studios.
We thoroughly enjoyed John’s tour. He was easy to get along with, laid back but still quite knowledgeable, and the kids loved him. He could keep them all entertained as well as the adults.
This great tour hosted by Monster Tours is a good way to entertain the kids and get them out in nature, learning about the different animals and wildlife inhabiting the area.
