A warm welcome to Penang. I am a LICENSED city tour guide by Ministry of Tourism and Culture, Malaysia. I have been calling George Town, Penang - UNESCO World Heritage Site, my home for more than 30 years now.

My customers comes from all walks of life and from all over the world, be it free individual travelers who flew in, to passengers from cruise ship stop-over at Penang, or tourists who drove in from neighboring countries.

I provide TOUR GUIDING SERVICE + TRANSPORTATION for tours, focusing mainly on Penang island and Penang mainland. With transport, It is definitely more convenient and enjoyable to experience what Penang has to offer within the shortest time. While one may travels George Town heritage enclave by foot, there are many places of interest located outside George Town such as Penang Hill, Kek Lok Si Temple, Tropical Spice Garden, Tropical Fruit Farm and Entopia Butterfly Farm.

Customers can choose either to do half-day, full-day or multiple-days tour of Penang only; or Penang plus other nearby locations, depending on how many hours or days they have in Penang.
For example:
1) 4-hour half-day tour or 8-hour full day *INCLUDING* tour guide + vehicle for George Town city tour.
2) 4-hour half-day or 8-hour full-day tour *INCLUDING* tour guide + vehicle for round Penang Island tour, Penang Hills and Temples tour and Penang Firefly Tour.
3) MULTIPLE full-day tour (quoted as per day rate of 8 hours) *INCLUDING* tour guide + vehicle for George Town and Penang tour & Penang mainland tour.


All the best attractions Penang has to offers.

Ever since the British first settled here, they had always yearn for respite from the depressing heat. They set their sight on the highest peak in Penang i. e. Penang Hill or locally known as Bukit Bendera. They built railway up the hill and bungalows for retreat during weekend.

During the British era the Chinese and other races flourished and thrived. They practiced their religion steadfastly and built many temples that rivaled those in China if not better! There is a saying in Penang - you have not been to Penang if you have not been to Penang Hill and Kek Lok Si. The Chinese built more and more temples which some are grander than those in China.

At the same time, Siamese and Burmese built Buddhist temples, the Malay built mosques and the Indians built Hindu temples on gifted land from Queen Victoria while the Europeans built churches. At Kapitan Keling Road, the locals called it Street of Harmony, there are 5 majestic religious buildings within vicinity of each others in a stretch of 500 meter.

The British first settled in George Town, a north east enclave on Penang Island, hence started a whole heritage legacy that withstand time for 230 years.

Additionally Penang state government also took proactive measure to have street arts drawn in this heritage area to draw in more tourists into its already heritage rich areas.
