Stunning Penang
LauraNitsch, 09-08-2022
G-shen was amazing. Also his colleague, Mr Gobi, was great. Both have long Tourguide experience. At this Tour G-shen was kind and had a lot of knowledge. İ can't believe that İ have seen so much in just two days. İ can highly recommend the Tour, the guids G-shen and Mr Gobi and the Agency. Thank you so much. İ had a great time in Penang!
Excellent tour

Everything went well. The tour company was very accommodating. We had a large group of 30 people. The company gave us one vehicle for all of us instead of 3/4 small vans. Everyone enjoyed it greatly the sightseeing of Penang.
Average tour. I expect more

First, the good side. The tour carefully select the places we are going to visit. There are two more Buddhist temples, besides Kek Lok Si, to visit in the tour. One is a Thai styl tmeple. The other Burma style . But Kek Lok Si is the main one and rightly so.You do need a car to go up to the main temple. This is a plus.Then we visited The Chew pier before we visit the other main site, the Khoo Kongsi.This sis a lavish community hall of the Khoo clan and is very worth visiting. The guide , Ah Shing, explained reasonably well and is also quite attentive to our need, eg he would start the car earlier so that it is cool down a bit in this hot weather.Howeer, there are four things that the tour need to improve. First, it should arrange a brief lunch. It is unreasonable to expect one could last from 10am to 3 pm without eating something. Second, a bottle of water should bee provided . Simple thing, I know. But it is not done.Third. Given the importance of Buddhism in the local history, I feel the guide do not know enough in this area. Fourth,the wall painting sites are all passed by without opportunity to take photos.
