Full day Penang island tour
Jan 2020 • Couples
Muhommed was a very knowledgable tour guide and knew where to park to avoid too much queuing or walking. Just one star lost as Mohammed took us to an Indian restaurant where the food was delicious but quite expensive for lunch . Overall though a very enjoyable day.

Thanks Mohammed for a fantastic day! Mohammed was the perfect tour guide for the day. He was ver concerned about what we liked and did not like specially because of the kids. He even suggested the upside down museum that was a perfect stop for the boys.
As he drove us around Penang he kept telling about the history and the situation nowadays in Penang. Always happy to answer our questions.
Highly recommended.

Aug 2019 • Couples
If you want to see all the sights in a limited time then this trip is for you. Mohammed was lovely and very knowledgeable about the history of Penang. He drove well and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. The tour loses a star because we had to pay extra to upgrade to a fast pass at Penang hill. The problems with queues are well known and for the price of the tour that really should be included and because we were made to go to chocolate and pewter shops that we weren’t interested in.

Apr 2019 • Couples
Mohammed gave us a wonderful private, full day tour of Penang. He was very knowledgeable and friendly, accommodated our needs (we were a group of three, two of whom are seniors), and gave us a lot of historical perspective, which we liked. I would highly recommend him to anyone who really wants to get a good feel for the area. Absolutely worth the money.

Great guide but tour needs improvement
My husband and I made this tour with George on Dec 28. George was an incredible guide, very attentive, always providing information and trying to make the most of the tour for us. The only thing we didn’t like was that it took us 2,5 hours to actually go on the funicular for Penang Hill. George told us that there was a fast lane but not included in the tour, we had today extra. Since we had paid around 160£ for a 2 people tour (which is a very expensive price for Malaysia) we think that this price should already include the fast lane access (it’s around 10£). It May spoil an experience of a 8 hours’ tour to spend 2,5 hours waiting in line... We almost regretted the waiting... But the view is astonishing.
Other than that , George was really great and I would recommend the tour but make sure that includes a faster way to Penang Hill. At least for the price paid, I would definitely urge MAM Holidays Malaysia to make sure that is the case for future use...

George Town highlights
Sep 2018 • Couples
If your pressed for time or simply want to learn more about George Town and what it has to offer, this is the tour you need. Maxwell is an excellent guide with an immense amount of knowledge about all we saw. From the botanical gardens, Buddhist temples through to Penang hill and the clan jetties.
We were thoroughly entertained and came away with great respect for everything that Penang has to offer thanks to Maxwell.

Great tour, worth the money for a private tour to make the most of your time as you can spend a lot of time picking up dropping off other hotel guests. Our guide mark was fantastic, he had so much knowledge about the area. Easy stop was breathtaking. Highly recommend

Super tour with a super guide
We had a fantastic day in Penang on this tour with Max, our very knowledgeable guide through the magnificent buddhist temples and the stunning Kek Lok Si monastery. During the visit to Penang Hill, Max also proved to be very well informed about the flora and fauna of Malaysia. Great experience, indeed.
