I had a great time on the walking tour with Joann. The cost was 360 RM for a 3 hour tour for just myself.

First Joann was vert flexible with the time of the tour and the sort of places I wanted to visit/was interested in.
We started with a white coffee in a local cafe where she told me all about the history of Penang and Malaysia .
We then walked around the city for about 2 hours where she showed me the different shop houses, the street art, the temples, boat houses etc.

We stopped for food and juices which were delicious. She had no afternoon tour on so she was happy to continue the tour for another hour before getting the shuttle bus back to the hotel.

Overall a very good tour!

We can highly recommend Joann as the best guide to book with for your walking tour! She is the only qualified tour guide via UNESCO and listed in the Lonely Planet ... and after spending time with her, you'll see why. Not only is she knowledgable and passionate but she also has a great sense of humour and is happy to take pics of you :-)

We had such a great time and learnt so much. We were also lucky to be the only people on the tour!

Thanks so much for your time Joann.

We had a great experience on the walking tour with Joann. The cost was RM 190 per person for a personalised tour for two people.

We met Joann in a coffee shop and sampled the specialty iced coffee whilst learning about the history of Penang. Accommodating our request we caught the free city bus towards the fort to see the colonial architecture while Joann answered all our questions about historical and modern day Penang. She had so much enthusiasm for all topics and the whole tour seemed very leisurely. We saw a lot more than we expected and could not have gained such an appreciation for George Town without her expertise.

Would definitely recommend the tour with Joann - a very knowledgable and fun guide.

We enjoyed an entire morning walking around George Town with Joann Khaw. After meeting us at 9.00am at our hotel, Joann led us to many cultural and heritage sites providing insight into the history along the way. Joann is very passionate about her city and has a wealth of knowledge that she is very happy to share. It was a terrific morning that ran into the afternoon and we really enjoyed it. Thanks Joann.

The best thing about Georgetown is the street art. There's many many street art and would take you couple days to see all of it. Since Georgetown is famous for food, might as well take a rest and enjoy the food while searching for the street art =)
