Hi Gina, thanks in taking the time to write this review. We are glad you had a great time with KS Lee. All our tour guides had been carefully selected and trained so that more tourists from around the world can enjoy the sites and feel the warmth of Malaysian hospitality, as you had experienced with KS Lee. We wish you a great year in this 2020. Cheers.

Our guide, Max, made the tour absolutely informative. From religion 101, to history lessons, to contemporary movies shot in Penang Island, and a host of minute details that one would otherwise miss - we learned so much from him. And it never got boring!

We barely noticed the time because we were having fun.

The heat was the only factor challenging to us, but that's not something anybody can control. We suggest bringing umbrella or shawl to minimize discomfort.

Could we have had the same experience if we went around by ourselves? Probably not. Max maximized the time so we can visit as many places as possible. His conversation was amazingly well-researched, we wouldn't have been able to catch all the little details if we had gone to the museums by ourselves. I highly suspect we would have been bored in the museum if we had done it without a guide, but as it turned out, there was so much more story behind the period furniture and water wells. The stories kept us interested, and it gave the entire exhibit a flow we can follow from one room to another.

Would we recommend this tour to our friends? Definitely!
