    We did a second day trip, with Jasmine. Similar to day 1, we had a great time and jasmine helped make sure we could visit the places and k drama filming locations we want, and the food we wanted to eat, in the day. Our wishlist was rather long! Jasmine was helpful and helped recommend a good cosy restaurant for our lunch, and helped us take plenty of memorable family photos together. Have rated this 4-Star as the vehicle was somewhat cramped for our group of six pax. But the smooth proceedings of the day trip made up for it!

    Our guide Jasmine was great and took effort to accommodate our customized one day trip. A number of places we picked were filming locations which are not the usual tourist spots. We had quite a number of places we wanted to visit and Jasmine made sure we get to see what we wanted and try the foods we wanted. She made sure we were not disappointed and was helpful throughout. She also gave suggestions to a few good locations for lunch. Only thing is that the vehicle was somewhat cramped for our group of six pax but the smooth proceedings and us being able to see places we want, made up for it. Hence I’ve rated this 4 stars

      Thank you for your comments! We are very glad that you had a great time with our partner guide. She is a really nice guide and always trying hard to make satisfaction of the customer. Hope to see you again!:)
