My boyfriend and I booked a private tour when we were in KL, we were picked up from our hotel in the morning by a very friendly driver (English was weak but we got by) he then drove us to a road-side food stall and bought us all fried bananas for the trip, we drove about 2 hours (traffic) and then stopped again to buy more road side food - it was delicious! Then we stopped for lunch at a small eatery before we got to our 1st attraction the Elephant sanctuary - our driver pointed out interesting things along the drive and was very chatty - we really liked him. After our elephant experience we went to Deerland and then we started on the drive home - we were so exhausted we napped on the back seat while our driver got us back to our hotel safely! We had an amazing memorable day and are grateful for the experience that they provided us! Thank you - highly recommended! Read more
Mark, our tour driver and guide met us at the cruise terminal Georgetown for the Around Penang Island Tour. After a few stops in Georgetown including coffee tasting, the third largest reclining Buddha in the world, we set off on our round the island tour. This included a stop at an art garden in the highlands and then on to an authentic fishing village. Mark was a very friendly host who made our day very enjoyable. A well priced tour that we would recommend to fellow travellers. Read more
We had a very nice private tour of Penang Hill and a Kek Lok Si Temple. Our guide Philip was a very nice gentleman. He set a very nice happy mood from a first sight. We were there during the holiday, so the crowd was unavoidable, but Philip managed to find the most optimal ways and kept entertaining us during short periods of staying in the line. I would recommend the company and Philip as a tour guide for the best experience of Penang. Read more
