    Fun thing to do in Penang and great views at the top not too expensive either - nothing much else to say about it as just like any other

    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!

    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.

    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.

    The trip was very disappointing. There was nothing much to see at the top of Komtar tower. The trishaw ride was pleasant. The package came along with dinner. We were not asked about our food preferences. Recommend that the tour operator should check with their guest about their food and dietary requirements before proceeding with booking meals.
    The trip is a waste of time and money. I do not recommend booking this package.

    Had a wonderful experience with AG. He picked us up form the mainland and took us to our hotel, talking about all the main sites along the way. We then chose him to take us across the main land- AG chose a scenic route and we used the ferry. He is incredibly reasonable when it comes to price, very easy to talk to and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble!
    Many thanks AG- my family and I definitely intend to use your service when we are in Penang next year. Thank you!!!
