    Great collections! It's a must see in Penang! Thanks to Ricky for a wonderful tour and history of the museum.

    Driver was excellent. Patient and explained things well. Penang hill is an interesting place to visit. Taking the tram up is a bit packed to fast lane is a must. Kek lok Si is impressive and a must see

    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!

    Tony, our guide was prompt and reliable. We'd been in Penang a few days and so he was able to customise the tour to suit our purposes and take us to the places we hadn't seen yet. We really enjoyed seeing Fort Cornwallis, Chew Jetty, Entopia, and hearing about all the different aspects that Penang had to offer. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and recommend it.

    Tiger is truly passionate about being a tour guide! Not only that he is a wonderful person and treats his guests with the utmost attention and care. If you want a guided tour look no further. You can tell that he does his homework and wants to be a tour guide to share his love of Penang. Here is a selfie photo of our group enjoying Durian, but we also visited kek lok si and other places. Oh and I almost forgot to mention he is a true food gourmet- you won't regret trying his recommendations :)

    Vincent our driver/guide tailored the tour to our specific requirements. He was very knowledgeable and good company. We decided only to look at places in Georgetown which is a really interesting place

    It was advertised as "Half Day Penang City Tour with Time Tunnel 3D Museum from Penang Island-5 Hours" but I was told on pick-up that there was no Time Tunnel 3D museum - they should've told me this beforehand - as they were communicating with me the evening before. Big disappointment.

    So myself and the driver (I was the only person on the actual tour) just made up places to go to fill up the 5 hours. Definitely was not worth anything near what I paid.

    I recommended that they took down the previous incorrect title - which I can see they have done.

    My partner and I decided to book a tour for the day, we wanted something that included a few destinations. Unfortunately we chose this one. We got the feeling that was way too expensive for what it was worth as no one else was on the tour. The tour guide was a lovely man who told us about the local area, which was great however we didn’t really have enough time to visit all the places on the list. At one point he asked us to pay for the temple when it specifically states it’s included. We had to show him the fine print and then he called someone. It was a bit strange. Over all it was a mistake to book this very expensive tour when you can just do it yourself using the app grab to get around the area.

    First, the good side. The tour carefully select the places we are going to visit. There are two more Buddhist temples, besides Kek Lok Si, to visit in the tour. One is a Thai styl tmeple. The other Burma style . But Kek Lok Si is the main one and rightly so.You do need a car to go up to the main temple. This is a plus.Then we visited The Chew pier before we visit the other main site, the Khoo Kongsi.This sis a lavish community hall of the Khoo clan and is very worth visiting. The guide , Ah Shing, explained reasonably well and is also quite attentive to our need, eg he would start the car earlier so that it is cool down a bit in this hot weather.Howeer, there are four things that the tour need to improve. First, it should arrange a brief lunch. It is unreasonable to expect one could last from 10am to 3 pm without eating something. Second, a bottle of water should bee provided . Simple thing, I know. But it is not done.Third. Given the importance of Buddhism in the local history, I feel the guide do not know enough in this area. Fourth,the wall painting sites are all passed by without opportunity to take photos.

    Muhommed was a very knowledgable tour guide and knew where to park to avoid too much queuing or walking. Just one star lost as Mohammed took us to an Indian restaurant where the food was delicious but quite expensive for lunch . Overall though a very enjoyable day.

    Very informative and my guide was lovely. A great way to see George Town at night and experience the local food.
