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.
The Singapore Cruise tour was a wonderful experience. It was my first cruise experience and it was great. I went for this trip with my friends and we all enjoyed ourselves a lot. The entire trip was so well planned we got to explore so many places in Singapore as well as in Kuala Lumpur. We had so much fun doing water sports and shopping and visiting beautiful places in the city. We even went to Sentosa island and rode in cable car. Marina Bay is so mesmerizing and beautiful. Facilities on the trip from rooms to meals to transport everything were taken well care of.
The trip to Singapore is one of the best trips I have ever been to. I went on this trip with my family. We all had a great time, especially my kids enjoyed a lot. The places included in the tour were so amazing from Marina bay to Universal studio to beaches to the zoo. We enjoyed a lot in Night safari and my kids totally loved the Universal studio experience, they loved the rides and had fun clicking pictures with cartoon characters. The facilities provided in trip were very good, the rooms were comfortable & cozy, the food provided was really tasty, and the driver was such an amazing person. Thanks, Thrillophilia for this beautiful and memorable trip.
The trip to Singapore Malaysia was like a dream come true. I and my friends had a great time exploring the cities. The universal studio is so amazing, the rides, shows all are too good. The night safari was also great fun, The facilities provided on the trip were very nice, the hotel rooms were good, the meals provided were delicious and even the cab driver was so polite and helpful. Thanks for the memorable experience.
Thrillophilia offered the best booking services.The cruise was amazing and I loved every part of the tour
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!!
