We chose this tour as we could choose where we wanted to go.

My family had a great time exploring Penang Hill, thanks to Max our guide. He was very knowledgeable and made our trip very interesting.

As we wanted to explore places outside of Georgetown, he also brought us to visit a durian farm(the durians were great!) and the teddy museum.
