Great guide. Interesting tour. Good value. Great way to get an overview of the older part of town. Easy to book online and they confirmed the day of the tour they called our hotel room. No hesitation in recommending.
Lawrence was the best tour guide! He was very nice, knowledge and accommodating. The Temple and the Penang Hill funicular train ride were amazing!
Amazing! Our guide, Lawrence, was absolutely fantastic! He was on time, friendly and very informative. The information given in an interesting way and we were his 1st priority. Sites visited interesting and jaw dropping. Even took us for coffee tasting - delightful outing...not to be missed!
My first time in Penang! Joined this tour and met an Australian girl who was also travelling Penang on her own. Our guide and driver, Mr. Lawrence, is very knowledgeable anout this city. He's also very friendly. No delay for picking up guests. This is what I appreciated most!
This is such a terrific tour. A definite must do while in Penang. My tour guide, Moye, sp? was highly knowledgeable and VERY professional. He was as interesting as the tour. I will use this company again when I book my next tour. Keeping my fingers crossed that I get the same guide. So wonderful!
i enjoyed the tour very much. Definately worth the money spend!
Highly recommend this trip. Great views of Penang when you go up Penang Hill. The temple is amazing so much to see,
My tour guide Philip was fantastic he came on time and was so knowledgeable. I even booked with him for a private tour the next day. I would highly recommend him and this tour.
A must see in Penang.
we were met by our guide and Driver Philip, he embarked on a ver fine tour, which included the reclining Budha, botanical gardens, a tip round Georgetown, showing us the murals, the Eastern Peninsula hotel, Suffolk house and little India. He the took us to the Chew jetty where we had free time and did some shopping.
As we have found Phillip spoke exceptional English was very well informed and wonderfully informative. All in all a very good tour and experience
Came back on Last Saturday and I had no regrets in choosing the tour package by Viator..and the tour agency whu had arranged dis tour guide for me was superb n I really liked his explanation..Very detailed.thevwhole trip was a great experience and an eye-opener for me .
This tour is a must do. Our tour guide Philip was amazing, he was very knowledgeable, answered all of our questions. Talked in depth to us about each place and then let us go off and explore. He didn't once rush us and even took us to a pewter factory and a tea, chocolate and coffee tasting tour at the end of the trip. It was fabulous but also very bad as we brought as much coffee as we could fit in our case. Philip also has lots of recommendations for things to do and places to eat, all of which we did. This trip made our time in Penang! Thank you Philip
The trip was great and the guide very knowledgeable. As a woman by myself for the afternoon I really appreciated being picked up from my hotel and I felt comfortable with my guide and it was a wonderful opportunity for me. Many thanks
Highly enjoyed this tour. Kek lok si is a must see temple and the grounds were absolutely beautiful. Penang Hill was amazing and loved seeing so many monkeys at the top of the hill. Highly recommend Phillip as your tour guide. He was extremely friendly and funny and taught me so much about Penang in just a few hours.
Fascinating tour, the guide was very good and arrived on time. The views from Penang Hill were amazing as was the ride to the top as our guide managed to get us in the first carriage. Well worth the money
Lovely tour with Lawrence as our guide he was great and very informative
I lived in Penang in the late 70's so it was great to be able to see some of the old sites again. However I must say the hi light of this tour was our tour director Phillip, he was outstanding.
We were EXTREMELY happy with this tour! We had Moy (sorry if I butchered your name), and he was a very excellent tour guide. We paid for the group tour but there were only 2 of us. He said the rest were still sleeping (even though it was 2 pm) :). He was very informative, pointing out landmarks and buildings on the way to the Temple and Penang Hill. As we stopped at these places, he always greeted one or 2 locals, which was nice to see. You can tell his friendliness wasn't an act. Also, he was very prepared with 2 umbrellas when he saw the rain clouds come in. Luckily, it didn't rain (just a light drizzle) but still it was nice to see that he took care of his guests. At one point, he chatted up with the train conductor and we actually got to see his switchboard. Pretty neat. Definitely would do another tour with Moy again!
Our tour Guide was Fantastic, In fact it was the best tour we did while aboard Diamond Princess Cruise and you are to be highly recommended, you are A great company to deal with, it's not the first time I have made a booking through VIATOR and I was not disappointed, simply the best Thank you for making our cruise cheers Michael Hemingway
This tour was excellent. Pickup from hotel on time. Tour guide was fantastic (also had the same guide for the Island Discovery Tour, and previously last year). He was very knowledgeable, accommodating and humorous. View from the top of Penang Hill was spectacular.
extremely informative and a pleasant afternoon in penang.laurence was very good guide and explained many things to his group.also did the island discovery with laurence , top marks
The guide was brilliant, such a nice man and very knowledgeable. The temple was just amazing. We were let down by the weather whilst up Penang Hill but you could appreciate what the views would be like during good weather. Guide also made sure we had the best seats going up and down the hill which was a real plus. I would highly recommend this tour and the guide.
I also did the Island half day tour in the morning. This tour again was really good (amazing scenary) although Snake Temple was a bit of a let down. Despite this the trip is still very much worth doing.
Our driver arrived on time and was pleasant, courteous and careful; the car was clean and comfortable. Particularly enjoyed Kek Lok Si. Since our driver was Buddhist he was able to explain everything which really enhanced our enjoyment of the visit. Only negative was that the local company insisted we hand over our entrance tickets. My daughter wanted to keep hers as a souvenir and I had to email the company to confirm that we had both visited the temple so that our driver would not have to pay some 30 RM. I thought this was petty. But, other than that, a very enjoyable afternoon.
