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.

Excellent tour, the guide was very knowledgeable about Penang and its history. Without asking he also took lots of pictures of us together. Would definitely recommend this tour.

Lawrence picked us up at the hotel and drove us around the island with a running commentary. This tour was excellent, the highlight was the batik factory where we were able to see the craftsmanship and skill involved in making batik fabric. We were also shown where nutmeg was grown and various nutmeg and mace products were made. This was also very interesting and informative. Driving through the various locations gave us ideas about what other sites to visit during our stay in Penang.

We found this Tour truly excellent , due in very great part to the delightful personality of our driver/guide Philip Oh . Within a half hour of his collecting us . from Mansion One , we were chatting away like old friends as he drove us around the Island in the saloon car provided for the Tour . Philip was cheerful , knowledgeable and informative ,, providing us with a wealth of interesting information . The scenic aspects of the drive were memorable , and we were particularly pleased to see something of the ''true'' Malaysia that exists outside the urban and ''touristy'' locations . The stops at the Spice Farm , the Snake Temple and Serpentarium , and the specialist Tea and Coffee Sellers were all fascinating in their different ways . Philip , who had always been at great pains to fall in with our every wish , finally dropped us off at Gurney Plaza , where we wanted to go for lunch , We were genuinely sorry to lose his companionship , which had done so much to make this Tour so thoroughly enjoyable .

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.

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.

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.
