* Cosmos – Affordable coach touring:
Cosmos tours are the perfect fit for the value- minded traveller and although its itineraries are affordable, its service and quality is top of the class. Aline Yap is a loyal passenger of Cosmos, travelling with them for the past 10 years.
Among the tours on her roster are the 9D Slovenia and Croatia and 8D Highlights of Andalusia.
When asked why she keeps returning to Cosmos, she had only praises to sing:
“Unlike any other conventional tours, I usually don’t find myself rushing from place to place.
“Some tours even have free days for me to do my own exploration.”
As Cosmos is an international tour operator, you’ll find various nationalities sharing your holiday experience with you.
Yap still keeps in touch with her tour members till this very day.
It’s not only the fellow Cosmos passengers, but the tour directors that have left her with favourable impressions.
“There was once I missed a day of my tour because of a flight delay.
“The tour director made up this day of touring on a different day, including accommodation without any extra charges.”
* Avalon – Deluxe river cruising:
Avalon Waterways is deluxe river cruising with the youngest fleet on European waters, winning the “Best Cabin 2015” award. Each ship comes complete with spacious panoramic suites with wall- to- wall windows ensuring stunning views throughout the day. The 8D Tulip Time cruise to Holland and Belgium was Ng Ah Loi’s first venture with Avalon.
She had some apprehensions before the cruise: “I was so worried about seasickness, I even brought seasickness pills, but I didn’t need them. The cruise was so smooth you couldn’t tell it was moving.”
Each day included a guided sightseeing on land with a fun international crowd from her cruise.
Staff on board were exceptional too, as Ng said, “The tour leaders were very knowledgeable and helpful.
“The cruise staff were friendly and made me feel at home, I got VIP treatment throughout the trip.”
The favourite part of her cruise were the panoramic rooms.
“The rooms were spacious,” she said. “I got great views of the scenery with the cool breeze drifting into my room. It was nice to sit with a cup of coffee on the balcony enjoying the scenery.”
