        Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
        Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
        When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
        Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

        One of Penang’s best-kept secrets, the southwestern part of the island which is called Balik Pulau offers bicycle rides for Rm7 each through quiet little towns as well as visits to an animal farm and a ‘bedak sejuk’ (traditional rice powder) factory.

        One can set out to explore Balik Pulau on their own. With Google Maps as navigator, one can cycle along quaint villages, passing by a fishing village and making occasional stops to enjoy the beautiful scenery. A fantastic way to see the natural beauty and feel of fresh clean air.

        Get collected from your hotel, drive to countryside and then pick a bike and then the ride begins. A couple of hours cycling in the countryside via small tracks through lovely nature and small towns while being well informed about malaysia as a country and its culture told by the great local guide. Really enjoyed the ride.

        Overall really happy we did this tour. Bikes are definately the best and coolest way to get around. Pick up was very punctual and although it was an hour long transfer it was pleasant enough. The tour itself took in some nice quiet back roads and TC our guide had some great stories and a wonderful dry sense of humour. The only things that let it down are 1. the bikes which everyone mentions and 2. the amount of rubbish, particularly plastic, which is strewn across the Malaysian countryside. It is the same in parts of my country but it seems worse here because it is in such lovely scenery. Nevertheless we left with a much better sense not just of Penang but of Malaysia than when we started. Thanks TC and our driver.

        Eddie was amazing. He took us on a relaxing ride through the local country side pointing out features we would have never known. Eddie took us through a fishing village, had breakfast at a local shop, rode through palm plantations with explanations of the planting and growing process. He took us to a local farm housing different types of animals. We tasted the local ice cream. What a treat on a hot day. Eddie is very humble, knowledgable and a joy to have as a guide. My husband and I highly recommend him.

        Collection at our hotel was on time, AC cold in the car and an hour’s journey through interesting countryside. Our group was split into 2 groups of 6 p, a perfect number to hear the guide and stop when necessary. Bikes were old and NO helmets were available but most of the cycling was off road and pretty safe. Cold drink and Malay cake about half way through. Would recommend this tour if you are in Penang; we had fun and it exceeded our expectations.

        It was a great tour, Eddie was very informative, I learned alot about the local culture and way of living.
        It was a beautiful cycle through the countryside, not too tiring, just lovely and at a leisurely pace. We also got to feed the goats and tasted delicious, home made goats milk ice cream.
        We were picked up early so the tour ends before the heat of the midday sun.
        Highly recommend. It's for people of all ages, I went solo, there were 3 other solos and one couple. A great experience!!

        We went as a family of 3 and there was another family of 3 that signed up as well so it was a small group that day. We really had a fun and relaxing time. The ride was easy as it was mostly on flat ground and we made many stops in between. Eddy, our guide, was excellent. He’s very friendly and gave in-depth explanations about the different locations we stopped at. We rode through the plantations and fishing village and kampong, which was a nice experience indeed. We highly recommend this and will definitely go for it again when we’re next in Penang.

        The driver was very punctual when picking us up from our hotel lobby. The bicycle ride through the palm tree/durian plantations, chinese/malay villages, fishing jetty and fish farm was very insightful and informative. Our tour guide was absolutely knowledgable and friendly. Overall a superb experience.

        Tour was super nice!
        Even if it's very early - it leaves you so much time to continue exploring things within the rest of a day.
        Guide was brilliant! Super nice and easy to talk to guy.

        Really worth it :)
