Driver for hire for a day

Hi there

Just wondering if anybody knows of a reliable driver in Penang for hire. I noticed that some of the posts regarding this topic are quite dated so would like some more recent suggestions/tips on this. We are a family of 3 adults and 3 small kids and will be visiting Penang during the third week of August. Any information will be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Best regards

For Limousine/Transport Service for all your transportation needs. I recommend Muru 012-4688459. He is very professional and courteous.

Just wanted to say thank you to all the people on this forum who recommended Mr. Mogan. We hired him for half a day of sightseeing and also for the drive to the airport. We were extremely happy with his services and I will contact him again on our next trip to Penang.

Dear Clueless

I suggest that you approach Ocean Jupiter for your driver. We were in Penang on the 11/13 April and had one of their drivers for both days. They are very reliable wlth modern vehicles. The drivers are very knowledgeable and will be flexible in their tours. Cost for 11 hours hire was MKR330 (about AUD$110). We will continue to use them for all future trips there. C heck out their airport transfer costs as well.

Hi! Reading all these posts with interest - I like the sound of Morgan and I am going to contact him regarding a day tour (family of 4). Just wondered where you both/all recommend as the 'priority' places that he could take us too.

I appreciate your help and apologies if this info is available in another post.
