It was really great to see Georgetown and special places on Penang Island with mr Firdauz, Mohammed. He told us many interesting facts. We especially like historic sites and street art and we did see both! Great tour!

We had a very enjoyable morning tour with Lam, who was our guide for the tour.

He was very knowladgable, spoke very good English and was very good company for the morning.

He took us to some really interesting places which we would probably have struggled to do on our own.

Would highly recommend to anyone who is interested in learning more about George Town.

Thanks Lam
Nice tour of George Town (and shops)

We enjoyed our tour of George Town, including visits to Pinang Peranakan Mansion, Khoo Kongsi, Reclining Buddha Temple and Clan Jetties. Our guide picked us up from Holiday Inn Penang and was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Note however that the tour also included unexpected stops at local stores selling chocolate, amber and batik prints. To be honest the family enjoyed visiting the stores, but I wish it had been clearly stated beforehand in the trip description
