We would definitely recommend EU Holidays to our friends.Thank you, EU Holidays for arranging and giving us a chance to know Jeremiah.Jeremiah thanks for your wonderful service.We will be back!
Interesting itinerary with many amazing picturesque views. Jeremiah is very witty, entertaining, responsible and attention to detail.
I want to commend Ms KEK OOI LENG for her excellent customer service. She attended to me when I first made the booking and she listened to our 'complaints'. When we told her that we were disappointed that we couldn't get the free umbrellas, she was in the middle of leading her tour and said she would get back to us when she is back. I didn't expect her to remember but she really remembered and it was such a pleasant surprise to hear from her that she managed to get the umbrellas for us. It was a very nice gesture from her and we appreciate it. Hopefully next time we get a chance for her to be our tour manager for our future trips with EU Holidays.
