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.
I booked a cruise tour to Singapore. I went there with my friends to experience something exceptional for our vacation. We had very few days in our hands to strategize our trip and to maximise the trip in best way possible, so it was best to go with thrillophilia. Looking for more.
We visited Singapore and Malaysia from Bangalore. It was fun and exciting knowing their culture. We also visited many tourist attractions. Looking forward for more.
We booked our tour from Delhi to Singapore to Malaysia. I must say it was a different experience as we covered two different foreign lands in a single trip. It was very captivating for us to know two different cultures and traditions. It was a complete family trip as a whole.
We had completed the above tour and it was a memorable experience for us. Thrillophilia was competent, confident, compassionate and caring. They made sure that everybody was comfortable, that everybody enjoyed every moment of the trip
It is the best tour package for a travel freak, a person who loves nature and also a food addict. It was the best vacation we spent in the past few years and finding peace in one another's field of interest.
