    Together with my wife and son, we had the privilege of having Ms Peggy to guide us through the half day tour of the entire water town on 04 Dec 2017. Her friendliness, good knowledge of the area and capability had made our tour very enjoyable. We are extremely pleased and for that I would want to commend and thank Ms Peggy for her efficiency.
