3 star rating: Worth doing May 2015

Mr Phillips Chinese origin, guide and driver brought Camry to pick up us. A passionate lover of old Bollywood movies. Regaled us with his Hindi knowledge and sang well along with the CD oozing out old melodies. A nice trip through town and old bridge to ferry ride, loaded car in it took us on the other shore of river

It is a bit scary to be on the quiet street. Like the revolving restaurant, it would be good to have dinner there too.

The trip to the food court-hawkers market was great. The trishaw ride is around the colonial part of town which is pretty. It is a little short and seems to be over as soon as it starts. The free drink is in the revolving restaurant which is a bit kitsch and in need of a renovation. It is worth doing to give you a perspective of where things are in Georgetown.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better May 2011

Not much of a ride, less than 10minutes. View from revolving restaurant at Bay view Hotel was great and the Hawker center for dinner offers variety of local foods at reasonable prices

This was ok but nothing that you couldn't do yourself without the cost involved, apart from going up to the revolving restaurant. I think for the money, the dinner should be included and perhaps have a choice of traditional favourites. The rickshaw ride was very short.
