Excellent
Saw many places like central market and little India and we could not stop taking countless pictures in the different spots.Must say, I was worried about the language thing, but the guide was so fluent in English, he explained everything to us in detail and we faced no trouble during our KL city of lights tour
I still can’t believe that I am back home. It was a great week in Malaysia. Got very good service from the people at Thrillophilia. I highly recommend them for your International trips
Had great holiday tour, all thanks to Thrillophilia, great service and support, looking forward to book my next tour with you soon
Thrillophilia orgainised everything! Our hotels, the guides, the driver and an air conditioned car. Everything was amazing and was on time. A big thumbs up to the team for such arrangements.
We had a trip of a lifetime. Thrillophilia was very accommodating and the team made sure everything was perfect. We can’t say enough about our Drivers – they kept us safe and comfortable and were sure to point out and stop at sites
I want to express my thanks to Thrilloohilia for an excellent trip to Malaysia. I found your presentations and organisation over the period very thorough, informative, exciting and enjoyable
