I thoroughly recommend the Penang Balik Pulau countryside tour with Matahari Cycle Tour's. I did this 4 hr ride in April and was delighted to ride through small villages, stop at a goat farm, sample the produce, learn about nutmeg, learn how palm is grown and harvested and to eat an amazing lunch under a simple shelter at the edge of a rice paddy. And more..finishing up at a pretty beach. The Matahari team organise everything perfectly, the bikes are great, there's lots of stops and cold water , transport to and from the hotel was seamless. It was hot work! But all worth it, next time I'd book another tour with these teriffic people, very special and such a refreshing approach to tourism.
