Excellent private tour. Our guide James was extremely knowledgeable about Penang and all of the places we wished to visit. Despite having known Penang for many years, James still managed to show us many new places and experiences that I hadn't known about. We finished the tour feeling like we knew the island so much better than we did at the start of the day and would not hesitate to recommend James's services for a great private tour experience.

We spent a great Sunday touring the sights of Penang. The highlight was the visit to the Penang Hill with its panoramic views of the city. What made this whole tour so special was our guide Meng Chee "Lester" Lam. He is so knowledgeable about the culture and history of Penang, the off-beat locations to visit and where to eat great value for money local cuisine. During the tour, Lester took some superb pictures of us to remember our Penang visit - he is an enthusiastic and proficient photographer!
We had a great time - though we had just a day to tour 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!

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!!

I booked this tour as we wanted to see as much as possible in the short time we were staying in Penang.I was not disappointed as we could devise our own itinerary with advice from the most wonderful tour guide,Mr Vincent Wong.We managed to see all the highlights and more which even led to us running overtime but no hassle.This tour is amazing and I only have praise for the professionalism of this company and the tour guide who was highly informative and likeable which made the trip worth every penny.Thankyou!

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
