Excellent
I had booked my Universal studio Singapore tickets from Thrillophilia and I must say I got the best deal.After purchasing they would send a mail to fill the details of travellers. It was very organised and we need to take the printout or mail of the tickets they send to the Universal studio..For my future trips I would definitely go with thrillophilia..
"Easy and simple. you can either take a print out or scan the barcode in your mobile at the entrance. Good experience."
"wonderfull experience at universal studios. opens at 10 am to 5 pm. tickets received from thrillophilia were for direct entry to Universal studios. no problems at all. also the lowest prices at thrillophilia."
Wonderful & thrilling experience. Must to do is transformer ride. Mummy is like deep space in Imagica, if you have guts to do it...then only go for it.
Really loved the place, too clean and well maintained. They have around 100+ huge aquariums and have thousands of species. Really love the place.
For history enthusiasts like me, the Battlebox Tour Singapore is one of the best opportunities one can enjoy. I went on this trip after reading thrillophilia reviews and had a great time over here.The tour unveils the hidden realities of World War II and the ways of functioning of the bunker during that time. The experience was not only thrilling but worth every penny spent. Arrangements made by our Thrillophilia guide were also up to the mark. Indeed a good tour!!
For our honeymoon, we went to Singapore. It's a very good place for travelling. I also checked some thrillophilia reviews before proceeding for our tour to get more insights about this place.We tried all kinds of tours available there every day and almost covered every part. But, the best according to us was the Duck tour in Singapore. It is quite fun and is very cute! The cost of Duck Tours is also quite cheaper than the rest. Also, I would like to thank Thrillophilia for their arrangements.
Thrillophilia offered the best booking services. Had no problem in booking and the operators were very supportive. The mega zipline Singapore with mega jump is an extremely thrilling activity. I didn't know anything about this activity until I read it from thrillophilia reviews and decided to do it. Great service on the part of thrillophilia. All the probable issues are nicely tackled by the tour operators. Will definitely recommend it.
I am sharing my experience at thrillophilia reviews about my visit to Jurong Bird Park. The management encourages tourists to carry essential items such a camera,sunglasses,sunscreens as well as heavy clothes.That's not all,visitors must also bring their valid identification cards for details verification.Unknown to many,the Jurong Bird Park adventure is strictly a group tour.The booking fee includes the bird's watching fee as well as the tram ride.Therefore a visitor is at liberty to watch as many birds as they like without any restriction.
It's crucial to note that the booking fee is inclusive of essentials such as meals,accomodation as well as some activities.That's not all you'll be happy to know that there are huge discounts for you.However,customers must note that these experiences are reserved for adults only.You must also know that the company allows customers to share tents.For this reason,one gets an opprotunity to socialise with others and create new friends.There's nothing more fulfilling than having good friends around you.
