Loved this tour. Guide was excellent picked me up at my hotel early. We drove all the way around the island, and I got to see the northern beaches, the western fruit farms, and a western Muslim village, Great overview of Penang Island. The guide was excellent about pointing out a lot of extras such as architectural marvels, and back in George Town he let me out at a food market to try a local specialty and with directions for the short walk back to my hotel.
