This was a small group of three. Phillip, our tour guide, was great. He was very knowledgeable about each place we went to. He shared his thoughts about Penang and answered questions willingly. It was very interesting and nice to be in a small group.
The tour was without a guide,only a driver with broken English,interested only in the property market in the island.Print factory,Fruit market,and Coffee beans factory were commercial breaks,Nevertheless the latter was a good compromise,as the group members were desperate for free coffee drops.
This guy is really really nice, he made our trip a very enjoyable one, very pleasant indeed. lucky we had him on this tour.
This tour was a really good opportunity to see the important and historical sights in Penang, Malaysia. I was the only one in the tour and my tour guide was quite good. The two temples- Thai and Burmese were truly spectacular! it wa really worth the trip including a trip to Georgetown!
The guide and the trip was good.
The island of Penang is very beautiful and this tour drives you around the island. I felt that more opportunities to take photos would have been nice, and I would have loved to see the spice farm instead of the drivers friends roadside stand, but all in all it was okay. I was with two others and our tour was in a small car. The driver was pointing and talking while trying to drive a small car, and I felt in danger at times on the small crowded roads. We made it back safely though and the guide was pleasant enough.
Great tour , guide was great , gave a good overview of the island .
Enjoyed all of it
Great tour guide! Knowledgable about Malaysia. No problem modifying tour schedule for us.
The Penang Island Morning Tour was terrific. We'd never been to Penang before and the tour was an excellent introduction. The bas was clean and comfortable and well driven. Our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and gave us great insight into Penang and Malay history, culture and landmarks, flora and fauna. I would highly recommend this tour for those arriving in Penang wanting to know more about this beautiful island.
This tour gave us an amazing feel for the entire island of Penang. The drive was beautiful and we enjoyed experiencing the various aspects of the island. All of the stops were interesting, but we definitely felt that they were a bit too "commercial" as the information parts were not as extensive as we would have liked and the "shopping time" allotted was often much longer.

My first time using aviator. It was a hassle to start. It was good I had a hotel staff call for confirmation. Our booking was unheard of, so she has to fax our prepaid ticket/voucher. Had to wait for hours to get a confirmation for our next day tour. Was really disappointing considering it was prepaid weeks earlier. We could have wasted our day waiting for nothing without confirming first. It should have been hassle free.
Our voucher states a pick up time of 9:30 but we were picked up at 8. It was just a mess to start.
However, the tour was great. Our tour guide was a walking creature of knowledge. Bus was clean.
A must to get an overview of the island. Helpful guide.
It is worth the money tour.
An enjoyable tour, made even better by David, the tour guide. The snake temple suprised me, there were far less snakes than when I last visited in 1965!! It was a very pleasant morning's tour. The Batik factory was an eye opener, for the hard work involved in making the designs. It was interesting to see the Malay village, when one sees all the development with high rise accomodation on the Island now.
A very good tour - even when David was informed that the fort area was closed due to a celebration. He was not in the least perturbed and took us across the road to another temple, which was again very interesting with his amount of knowledge, at a moments notice. The new building housing the Royal Selangor Pewter was an eye opener. Even with all the traffic, it was a very informative tour.
i was lucky enough to have David as my tour guide on all three of my tours of Penang. Should I return and took tours, it would be a pleasure to have David as my tour guide again. Should I take an individual tour, I would definitely ask for David as my tour guide, because of his great personality and amount of knowledge.
