Amazing service!
Nov 2021
EngSeong was very knowledgeable and accommodated all our complicated requests without any issues (we were staying about 1 hour away from Penang and he picked us up and dropped without any issues). Even though the time was limited, we still managed to see a lot of Penang in just one day! Would definitely recommend!

Our highlight of Penang
This was hands down - the highlight of our trip to Penang. A great company, we booked the day trip only 24hrs before, and received confirmation of our booking almost straight away. On the morning of the tour we were greeted by our tour guide, Lee, who was very friendly and approachable. Before heading off, we discussed our plan for the day, with Lee’s helpful advice.
The first half of the day was spent exploring the streets of George Town, by car with some light walking. Lee knew the town so well, you could really tell as he went into detail on the history of Penang. We visited a Buddhist Temple and watched locals visit. Lee taught us about the history of the temple and an insight into Chinese Buddhism. It was all very interesting.
Lee treat us to lunch with a local dish which was a great experience of something new.
After lunch we visited the Chew Jetty, then went on a short drive by a few hidden gems before heading up to the Botanical Gardens. We did a short walk around the gardens (as the weather was so hot!) and learnt about the nature, visiting the spice garden and smelling and learning about the different spices which grow there. Lee was so informative.
We then headed to Penang Hill, the last stop of the day. We were over our time by the time we had arrived however Lee was very patient, we didn’t feel rushed at all.
By the time we were dropped off at our hotel we were almost 2 hrs over ! Thanks to Lee for his generosity and kindness.
We highly recommend this tour, it was so informative and we learnt so much about Penang and it’s history. We now see Penang through a different pair of eyes. It was definitely our highlight of our stay in Penang.
Thanks very much Lee for such a great, memorable day!

Amazing Day
Jan 2020 • Friends
We chose this trip because it was private and flexible and the times worked well with our cruise itinerary during our stop in Penang. I planned our itinerary in advance with Max who was very informative . On arrival Jackie picked us up at the cruise pier and off we went in a comfortable air conditioned van.
We visited the Kek lok Si temple, Batu Ferringhi beach and a Batik Factory where we shopped. Jackie was super informative and extremely flexible when we wanted to spend more time shopping than to drive in Georgetown to view street art which we didn’t care for . This tour was fabulous and all due to the amazing staff that helped plan this day with us based on our likes and our guide in the day of who accommodated our wishes.

Our guide was enthusiastic and had a depth of knowledge
Jan 2020
KS Lee our guide was great. We chose to visit Penang Hill which, whilst very interesting, used up a significant chunk of our 6 hours because we had to wait for 4WD transport to get up and down. On reflection, we would have kept Penang Hill as a separate visit. We visited the Botanical Gardens which was well worth it. KS had in depth knowledge of the rich history of the gardens and its flora, in particular the many spice trees growing there. It was fascinating! He showed us as much as we could fit in in the remaining time and had relevant stories to tell at each stop. Georgetown and its amazing history was the definite highlight for us and K.S demonstrated his depth of knowledge explaining everything along the way. In particular we loved Little India and its character. We could have spent a whole day just exploring that. Definitely worth another visit. Thank you KS

Wonderful!
My guide Tiger was awesome. I had an ambitious list of temples I wanted to see and we hit them all and even some extra local spots. He was so helpful explaining the history, culture and customs as well as taking pictures. Looking forward to a future visit to get to see more of the beautiful Penang and its people.

Our guide was amazing! (EngSeong) he contacted me through WhatsApp before our arrival to the cruise terminal so we could arrange the time to pick us up. He was on time, very friendly and attentive to our needs. The car was very nice, very comfortable minivan with good A/C.
On arrival he gave us a list of all the touristy sites in Penang, so we chose based on our interest and time were we wanted to go. We decided to go to Penang Hill, Kek Lok Si and Georgetown.
He shared a lot of information about the culture and history of Penang, he was with us all the time, helped us take good pictures and we definitely felt like we learned a lot during our short stay in Penang and were pleasantly surprised with the high quality of the tour, I will highly recommend it!!
