Malaysia & Singapore Tour Reviews

"During the Eid al-Fitr, after a long search, I went to Malaysia & Singapore with Salam Booking. They were incredibly attentive from our first conversation. Every detail was carefully thought out and planned. Both hotels we stayed in were very good in terms of location and cleanliness, and we had incredibly nice experiences. Prayer times were paid attention to, halal food options were offered. My prejudice against traveling by tour was officially broken with Salam Booking, thank you so much 💖💖"
