    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!

    We had a fantastic food tour with our guide Saraiya! Saraiya was very knowledgeable and informative about the places we visited and the dishes we tried. We had a great mix of food, history and culture, and ate until our heart’s content and then some! Dishes we tried included dosai, chana bhatura, masala vadai, samosas, char bihun, assam laksa, lobak, ginger tea, and more! We also enjoyed seeing some of the unique Georgetown street art. Thanks again Saraiya for a wonderful experience! Highly recommend this tour!

    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

    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 :)

    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.

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

    A visit to Penang won't be complete without visiting its numerous street art.
    Here is the George Town street art I encountered during my brief stay.

    K S Lee was our tour manager taking us to Georgetown for the day . Mr Lee was able to tailor the tour to our liking and throw in some nice surprises for us too . Mr Lee’s knowledge was staggering he gave the tour so much depth and flavour , I would recommend him to anyone seeking a quality tour day around this fascinating place . In short book him !

    What a fun day we had with Ken! For a whole morning Ken took us around Georgetown and explained all the sights and history. He is very knowledgeable and explained everything in detail - including pictures and maps for clarification.

    We told him we like to taste local flavors as well, and since we were the only guests that day he really took the time to have us try many different foods.

    A great experience that we definetely recommend.

    Our tour guide was prompt and incredibly knowledgeable. After the Orang Utan Island tour, he brought us to taste some local food and then helped us to decide what else we wanted to do. He knew all about the history of the island and made everything more interesting.
