Amazing day
I booked this tour as a way to quickly see the city. Jesse was extremely prompt in a clean, modern, air-conditioned vehicle. Jesse customised the tour exactly to my interests and her knowledge and experience is second to none. I got to experience all the best of beautiful Penang and I enjoyed the tour so much I decided to extend for two additional hours which Jesse kindly accommodated. I highly recommend this tour for anybody wanting a flexible, personalised and deeply informative experience.

Knowledgeable guide, enriching tour
Jan. 2020 • Couples
Our guide, Ang, showed us top sights in Penang while providing just the right amount of historical context. The half-day unfolded like a well planned story, and ending it at a "hawker center" was a delicious treat. The quality was worth the price.

Flexible half day escapes
Mark Lee was our tour guide for the flexible half day tour. He's the best! I was completely surprised by how patient, enthusiastic and knowledgeable he is. Honestly, I wasn't expecting much for the tour but with Mark, he made it a very interesting and enjoyable tour. He's very thoughtful too (he has a steady supply of cold water and soft drinks that he offered us!). It was time very well spent and we highly recommend Mark as your tour guide!

Penang city tour
Dec. 2019 • Family
The half day escapes booking was a disappointment. We were picked up by an MPV that could only seat 6, and there was not enough place for my 2 year old to sit and he was fidgeting. Why wasn't I given a seat for him? When I booked, I remember your website not giving me an option for my son's age group of 2 years old...so he was considered 'infant'. It was so dangerous having him sit on our laps when he's so big and active.

Hi Celine, Thanks for writing. So sorry about your infant's seating. Your booking stated 6 adults and 1 infant. Infant does not gets a seat by himself but sits on the lap of parent. I purposely arranged for a luxury MPV, a Toyota Vellfire, for the comfort of your family. My driver guide tried his best to give you his best service to his ability. Once again I am sorry that he had to sit on you or your husband's lap throughout the 4 hours tour. In the future we will arrange transport that have ample seats to all passengers, irrespective of infant or not. Thanks for your feedback.

Wonderful day with very knowledgeable guide
We took advantage of the flexibility of the package and texted our preferred destinations to our guide, Tiger, hours before we were to meet him. He arrived promptly with a clean, well maintained car. He was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. Everywhere we wanted to go, he had interesting history and stories to tell us. We asked him to do a couple of non tourist stops, and he was very accommodating and made them as seamless as possible.

Tiger was a good driver as well. He spoke very good English. If we had the opportunity, we would have had him guide us every day of our trip!
