Absolutely! Wai Lin was amazing and helped me build my personalized itinerary from scratch with all the activities that I was most interested in. We worked together through the “What’s App” app. He was very responsive and readily available, energetic, supportive, and became a good friend in the process! I would highly recommend Backyard Travel to anyone looking to customize their own itinerary while having all hotels, guides, and transportation coordinated for them. Wai Lin was especially a pleasure to work with and was able to offer suggestions and advice while also being very open to my feedback and preferences. What an awesome trip it was!
