What people are saying about Penang Island

The driver / guide was on time at the hotel, but before that, unlike on other tours, there had been no contact. Although the 11th time on Penang, we have gained a whole range of new impressions. Kek Lok Si was rather annoying, you run through too many souvenir shops, the drive through the old town with the many colonial buildings was very nice. We always had enough time for sightseeing, it also explained a lot.

Very friendly and attentive guide. Details of the visit at our pleasant pace. Accessible trishaw.

Great visit with great guide, we paid the trishah 8 ringitt for 4
