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.

The tour takes you on a visit to George Town's heritage enclave - heritage houses, clan houses and living heritage in Penang. Understand why this city, together with Malacca, were inscribed as UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site in 2008.  

Find out about George Town's diverse multi-racial cultures of Chinese, Indian, Malay and European with their living styles, past and present, that live harmoniously side by side of each other along the same street.

You also get to try a wide myriad of mouth watering foods created by fusion of east meet south meet west - Char Koay Teow, Curry Mee, Hokkien Mee, Satay, Nasi Kandar, Roti Chanai and Chendol. Just lip smacking good.

 Fun and fact filled tour with knowledgeable Max
by Ivan on January 4, 2017 3:12am UTC

I booked this tour for my family and me. Max was punctual, and he picked us up at our hotel lobby. The transport was spacious and comfortable.

Max is a highly experienced and knowledgeable guide. It seems like he knows everything about Penang, from history to heritage and he showed us interesting things around Penang that you would not have known if there isn't a guide with you. There is an instance where he brought us to a particular attraction and advised us that it is not worth the entrance fee but brought us to see the landmark from another angle and furnish us with the facts about it.

The private tour is customizable and all in all, my family enjoyed the time with Max a lot.
