Wonderful experience! Really enjoyed this bike trip. Our guide was very friendly and informative, both on the drive to the countryside and on the bike ride. We learned so much and had a great time. The guide escorted us to shelter when the skies opened up with rain and he ended up taking the bikes back in a truck and coming back for us in his van. The guide also had a great sense of humor and made the experience very enjoyable. Highly recommend.

Eddie was amazing. He took us on a relaxing ride through the local country side pointing out features we would have never known. Eddie took us through a fishing village, had breakfast at a local shop, rode through palm plantations with explanations of the planting and growing process. He took us to a local farm housing different types of animals. We tasted the local ice cream. What a treat on a hot day. Eddie is very humble, knowledgable and a joy to have as a guide. My husband and I highly recommend him.

The driver was very punctual when picking us up from our hotel lobby. The bicycle ride through the palm tree/durian plantations, chinese/malay villages, fishing jetty and fish farm was very insightful and informative. Our tour guide was absolutely knowledgable and friendly. Overall a superb experience.

One of Penang’s best-kept secrets, the southwestern part of the island which is called Balik Pulau offers bicycle rides for Rm7 each through quiet little towns as well as visits to an animal farm and a ‘bedak sejuk’ (traditional rice powder) factory.

One can set out to explore Balik Pulau on their own. With Google Maps as navigator, one can cycle along quaint villages, passing by a fishing village and making occasional stops to enjoy the beautiful scenery. A fantastic way to see the natural beauty and feel of fresh clean air.

Got picked up at 7am then a couple of more pickups for the rest of the group.

Given water to take with us when we got to the farm.. there's toilets there and various animals to look at which you're free to do just before being taken back.

Loads of bikes to choose from, mainly mountain bikes and city bikes with a basket. We could give them a go and take whichever we fancied. Not super high tech but the whole thing is only 10k and on the flat so they're fine for the job.

Went along waterways, through palm nut plantations, couple of fishing areas and a goat farm where there were various additional petting animals and fruit growing which we were introduced to like nutmeg, jackfruit, the blue flower they use to colour rice etc. All very gentle but a nice to stretch your legs and see the other side of the island for a morning.

We could choose where to be dropped off afterwards so handy if you want to go to kek Lok si afterwards.

Would recommend!

Eddy the guide has presented a wonderful area of rural and farmland in Malaysia.

The tour knowledge coupled with his humor accentuated the experience. I learned more about Penang whilst I have been travelling frequently to Penang in the past.

The warmth of a village and the local produce such as durians and rambutans are refreshing and rewarding.

The young adults and kids will love the petting farms. Bagus!

Get collected from your hotel, drive to countryside and then pick a bike and then the ride begins. A couple of hours cycling in the countryside via small tracks through lovely nature and small towns while being well informed about malaysia as a country and its culture told by the great local guide. Really enjoyed the ride.

Great way to experience Penang outside Georgetown. The trip there is longer than expected (40 mins) but it’s worth it. The cycling track is a bit uneven in parts, but the bikes are easy to handle and there’s no hills. Great guide with some good stories. Would do it again.

Tour was super nice!
Even if it's very early - it leaves you so much time to continue exploring things within the rest of a day.
Guide was brilliant! Super nice and easy to talk to guy.

Really worth it :)
