The Penang Island Discovery Tour was a great way to see some wonderful sights on the outskirts on Penang. Phillip was a wonderful tour guide and went above and beyond to make the tour enjoyable and unforgettable. Really enjoyed seeing the large variety of snakes near the snake temple.
If your guide is Phillip your in for a happy trip all the way round. There wasn't a question he didn't answer, and he adapted the trip really well to cater for our needs. Its the best way to start a trip to Penang. As a solo traveller its the only tour I could get ! Tour companies need a fresh proach to solo travellers. There were three of is on this trip.
This tour was excellent because our guide Francis was informative, knowledgeable, entertaining and interesting . In fact I would go as far as to say that with out him I would have only given this tour 3 stars.
Very interesting. Our guide spoke English extremely well and was very informative.

Great tour, again we had Moy for our tour guide and he is amazing , such a nice man, with a wealth of knowledge to share. We got more than our allocated time, but thouroughly enjoyed all the points of interest. The batik, factory was good and in fact we ended up doing one on our KL tour as well but thought the Penang one was much better. Highly recommended.
So fortunate to have had Philip as my guide, his local knowledge was terrific, very friendly and easy to speak with. Turned out I was the only customer for the morning so essentially had a private tour of Penang Island and Philip adapted the program to suit my needs. He was able to recommend some of best places for dinner and seafood restaurants in Penang. Highly recommend the tour company for its level of service.
Very interesting tour, made more so by the particular guide that we had. Visits to the fruit stalls and snake temple were special - but more time needed at the temple to be able to visit the small reptile park as well. We also managed a side trip to the Coffee Tree. Penang white coffee is the best. Highly recommend trying it.
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.
This guy is really really nice, he made our trip a very enjoyable one, very pleasant indeed. lucky we had him on this tour.
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.

Excellent tour, fantastic guide, the batik factory was a highlight.
We were picked up from our hotel on time and taken to a meeting point were we joined the rest of the tour. We were only 2 familes on the tour travelling in a coach. This gave a very private tour feel as we saw other tours having their buses cramped. The tour was amazing, took 5 hours from start to finish, and gave an excellent tour of Penang, including the snake temple, a jewellery factory, a malaysian style village, and getting some great views on the way.
It was the greatest tour ever booked! The tour guide we had was excellent! He's really knowledgeable and courteous. He even dropped us off at a destination easier and cheaper for us to take a cab to our next destination. Best of all, he offered to drop our shopping off at our hotel so we don't need to carry them all around which makes it so much easier for us! He's by far the best tour guide we have ever met. Thanks so much to him...
As for the tour, it's exactly like what is described on the web, but with more perks!!! Everyone should go for this tour to better know Penang like a local! Definitely a 6 stars tour! Cheers...:)

The tour was scheduled to last 3 hours and it actualy lasted nearer 5 so it was great value for money. We saw a lot of the island that morning and gave us a basic tour we could then go on and do ourselves. We had a very good guide who was very knowledgeable and never rushed the tour along.

I usually do not do package tours, but was pleasantly surprised with this tour company. Kudos to our guide, he was a fantastic tour guide who barely left a pause in his dialogue. This was a really nice, informative round-the-island tour. Yes, of course there were touristy stops where shopping was encouraged, but we didn't feel any pressure to make purchases. My only suggestion would be to skip the duty-free jewelery stop towards the end. The Batik Making and Rubber Tree taping were really nice to see as were the demonstration of all the different locally grown spices.

This was excellent and we had a really good driver who turned out to be a brilliant tour guide as well.
