Penang, culinary wonderland and Malaysian cultural gem, has a wealth of hidden charms. Orient yourself and see the best of the city on a private 3.5-hour sightseeing tour, which covers Penang highlights such as Little India, Penang State Museum, and Kuan Ying Teng temple. Explore the colorful colonial mansions of Georgetown, a UNESCO-listed enclave, purchase street food staples such as ‘chendol’ (iced dessert) and char sui pork, and receive undivided attention from a private guide.
  • Private 3.5-hour sightseeing tour of Penang highlights

Depending on the start time selected at checkout, your tour begins at either 9am or 2pm with pickup from your Georgetown hotel. From here, you’ll head straight to Penang State Museum (or another selected location when museum is closed) for a private tour of exhibits that speak eloquently of Penang’s past and present.
Then, proceed to Kuan Ying Teng (Goddess of Mercy) temple, characterized by its elaborated carvings, before crossing into Little India, a cosmopolitan enclave home to some of the city’s best street food. With the help of your private guide, you’ll assemble a smorgasbord of Penang staples (own expense), which include char koay teow (seafood noodles), laksa, rojak (bean curd fritters), and nasi kandar (curried meat and rice).       
Your tour culminates with a visit to Penang Road, the city’s principal street, where neon-fronted shops and tall towers are nestled against temples and traditional restaurants. Bid you guide farewell at hotel drop-off.

Was definitely well worth it. There's so much history and depth to Penang, I highly recommend this tour. Our guide was a local born and bread who was clearly passionate about Penang. We learnt the history of Penang, about each of it's cultural groups and religions and also got to try the vast array of foodie joints. Definitely recommend doing this tour. Especially since we got to customise it to our pace and interests.
