          This was a great day. Thank you Mr Eng. We saw all that we planned and more. Our guide was knowledgeable and we got to learn so much more than if we had tried to do this ourselves. This tour is well organised and worth it. Thank you.

          Great Penang tour
          The tour was perfect. Four hours worked well with a little one and the flexibility to do the things we were most interested in with suggestions from our guide was perfect. Having someone who is extremely knowledgeable about the area and the places we visited was great. Plus we were treated to some surprise local goodies along the way.

          Wonderful food tour- overview of Penang’s food wonders
          Marvelous tour with James today. LOTS of food. Perfectly curated with plenty of cultural tidbits. James tailored the tour for us (I’m gluten free/light) and was able to eat almost all the food. The best part is tasting foods you maybe wouldn’t know to order or perhaps wouldn’t dare. Highly recommended

          James was a great tour guide. I enjoyed all the different foods we got to try, and he had a fun, informative spin on local history, religion and food. He took great care for those of us with food restrictions. I got to sample so much I would otherwise probably miss on my vacation here.

          Penang food tour
          Without doubt the best food tour we have ever done. Poh was brilliant, information about food and culture was excellent. Took the time to explain the local food and helped us understand what was on offer and gave us confidence to order local food.

          Best Penang Tour Guide
          Our group of 8 just completed a 6 hour Viator tour of Penang with one of the best guides we have ever had. Her name is Tan Choon Eng. Her email address is ceingtan2023@yahoo.com. She met us exactly where her email specified. We had a large 13 passenger air conditioned van with a very nice driver. TC took us to the Kek Lok Si temple where we spent 90-120 minutes of amazing sights, including all three levels. Then we had lunch at a local food court where we sat at numbered tables and ordered delicious and cheap food from individual hawker stands. Everything was clean, even the western style bathrooms. Then we went on a walking tour of Georgetown and she told us the history of each area we visited, including clan houses, parks and streets near the cruise ship port. We stopped for a local dessert of shave ice, red beans, ice cream and fruit. It was wonderful. She even helped one of us find a place to buy nail polish remover. We recommend TC without any hesitation.

          Word of warning
          Poh was great, very polite and good at keeping smiles up. We had a nice walk with some tidbits of knowledge on the way. Enjoyed the Taoist temple tour along the way. The places we went to eat certainly felt authentic and served a lot of local foods. That said, there is A LOT of food and rather than a refined ‘best eats’ it feels a bit like an overindulgence of many similar noodle dishes and broths. Alarmingly, there were drinks with ice cubes and some cold chicken wings which I inherently regret this morning as yesterday’s fun is pouring out of me like an Icelandic volcano eruption whilst my stomach is tying knots not even the most seasoned seaman could undo. I wish I could attribute this to anything else, but this food tour has been my only intake in the last 36 hours before feeling very unwell. It is always fun to try local food in a guided setting, but know the risk of limiting your holiday fun in the following days.

          Josh is best tour guide ever.
          We booked this tour after reading the very positive reviews on trip adviser. Josh was our guide and both he and the tour were amazing. Probably the best tour we had throughout our tour of Indonesia. First of all Josh was so professional, so courteous and so friendly. He really was an excellent guide. His knowledge and descriptions and information were amazing. I cannot recommend this tour and Josh highly enough. Don’t hesitate book this tour and ask specifically for Josh. Josh - if you read your reviews another thanks from Lynda and sue for returning peters camera battery. You are an absolute STAR thank you

          Great local food, drink and guided tour about Penang culture and food
          Poh was lovely and very knowledgeable and shared with us the history and culture of Penang, including a visit to a temple. It was a lovely afternoon even with a little rain. It was truly wonderful to experience the Penang food culture and eat and drink like the locals. Even though we had enough to drink, bringing some water (bottles) is a good idea. Great job Poh, we really enjoyed the walking food tour.

          Good overview of Penang
          This tour provided a good overview of Penang, and added a lot to our own wanderings around d town. Things did not start out well, as the venicular rail going up the hill was down for service this week, and this was a major part of what we wanted to see. Although that was not the fault of the tour operator, it should have been mentioned in the tour description. However, our guide Ms. Goh did an excellent job finding an alternate way to go up, so eventually it all worked out OK. She generally kept things moving all day while giving good information, so we were happy with her knowledge, enthusiasm and keeping everything on schedule.

        We had a very exiting day full of decent views and places with Lester our guide. He was very nice and gave us so many informations and insights to all the places we visited. At the end of the day he sent us a link to all the pictures and movies he made of us at the stops. Great memories to watch and to show back home. We asked for a food recommendation for dinner. So he took us to a Hoka Food Market with some of the best local food, we had so far.

        This was a tour for myself and my wife. Our guide Josh contacted us 24 hours before the tour. He arrived 15 minutes early at 9.45am but told us to take our time in joining him. He had a lovely spacious new air conditioned car for the two of us. We had a great day visiting many sites and Josh was very helpful in agreeing the itinerary. He took us to one of the local restaurants he goes to for lunch - we were the only westerners there. Good food and drinks were less than £4 a person. He dropped us back at our hotel at 6.15pm after a memorable day and he WhatsApp’d us the photos he’d taken of the two of us at various locations during the day. Can’t really fault the tour or his service. We’ll done Josh!

        Incredible experience. My guide, Jeff See, did an amazing job - reaching out to me a few days prior to begin figuring out my personalized itinerary. He was extremely knowledgeable about his city and we comfortably packed in as many things as I wanted to see. While it is a long tour, Jeff See’s attitude remained awesome from start to finish. He is a great photographer as well - I highly recommend him!

        Booked the flexi full day adventure by Active Dynamics and the whole experience was pleasant and smooth. The agency emailed and later gave me the contact of the tour guide Lester Lam Meng Chee which enabled me to do some planning with him before the trip. Lester was also an excellent guide. He was patient with our group's request and was able to keep my elderly mother entertained. His photography skils was also fantastic and took many beautiful photos of the family. Overall a wonderful experience for us all, a group of 7 age 9 to 81 years old.

        Superb tour!

        Mr. Eng, my tour guide, could squeeze all the places I had requested to visit into my very tight schedule.
        He is so knowledeage about everything that I could really enjoy the tour.
        The local restaurant he took me for lunch was also very good.

        I am very very satisfied with this experience.

        This was a good tour, we did not plan that much up front, so when we’re met up with Josh, our guide, he quickly suggested places to start.

        Josh gave good insight on the places we liked to see, and was fantastic to find just the right time to arrive at all our stops, so we did had to stand in line or be in very crowded places.

        I highly recommend this tour, and the flexibility it has.

        Penang has so many great sites to see and this tour made it easy to cover as many things as we could in a day (really you need 3 days to do Penang justice). Our guide EngSeong was knowledgeable and made the tour lots of fun, taking photos for us and getting us to try some street foods that we would have avoided out of not knowing what they were otherwise. Highly recommended.
