Review of: Penang to Koh Lipe One Way Transfer
I was given different options for travelling to Koh Lipe. Jega answered all my questions before departure and was an interesting conversationalist in the taxi. He even offered me wonderful biscuits made by his granny and bought me coffee when we stopped. The trip went very well.

DO NOT BOOK! Deceptive Description with forced shopping stops. $100 and ww a free temple and a bunch of souvenir stalls.
We took this tour a few days ago. Penang Hill was closed for renovations, which is not the fault of the tour guide. However,it IS their job as a tour guide to know that and make a suitable alternate itinerary. We stopped at a temple and our tour guide had no information about it and led us up and down the same very steep steps 3 times. Very frustrating. Even after we said we didn't want to go to shop for coffee, chocolate, or batik textiles MANY times, we were taken there anyway. The tour guides then pressed us to buy things. (They get a kickback based on how much you spend). The itinerary was supposed to include lunch, but we never received one. For a $100, I expect more than a free temple and some over-priced tourist Shopping stops. After the forced shopping they suggested we take a TAXI back to the port even though they were supposed to provide the transportation. Avoid this company and this tour if you want to have an enjoyable experience in Penang.…
