Perfect Day Trip to Penang!
wsd2018, 21-01-2020
Due to time constraints, we booked this tour to Penang and we were not disappointed. Razuan was an excellent driver as well as a source of information for sites along the highway and in KL. He picked us up at our hotel at 7:00 a.m. sharp. The highway to Penang was good and we arrived in Penang less than 4 hours where we met our guide, Brian. Brian was full of information about Penang and its history. In fact, his tour lasted longer than the 4 hours allocated but we didn't mind at all.
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and recommend it,especially if you are fortunate to get Razuan as your driver and Brian as your guide!
We booked this tour the night before...

We booked this tour the night before and the customer service was extremely helpful. Our driver picked us up promptly from our hotel and we made our way to Penang from KL, he was very knowledgeable and made our 4 hour trip very interesting. Upon reaching Penang we picked up our tour guide who was very informative. We visited Kek Lok Si and the Snake Temple which were both very impressive. Lunch was amazing too! Would highly recommend this tour.
