Lai Yoke and her colleagues did an excellent job and were professional in delivering their services. Very friendly personality and were able to answer the questions during the Kopi and Cha tour.

The tour was engaging and the heritage trail definitely educated us on how our pioneers served our nation well in order for us to enjoy the fruits of their labour. Not forgetting tasting the michelin bak ku teh and kopi which truly liven the whole tour. Thanks for the well curated educational tour :)
