A great way to orient yourself to George Town and its history. Plenty of delicious food. Mark is an entertaining guide with a depth of local knowledge. Would recommend to do when you first arrive.

As people who have often avoided tours in the past, my partner and I cannot recommend Enak Tours highly enough. Mark was personable and charming from the get-go, and his knowledge of the island and rapport with store owners was impressive. It was a personal...More
