I had spoken to Selva few times before we arrived at Langkawi and again and again I had mentioned the price to make sure we’re on the same page but he picked us up in the morning, very friendly and very hospitable, got us some tea but when we got to the ferry terminal and he asked for us to...

If you are lucky enough to be to go on this day trip (Selva and his tours are in very high demand!) you will have one of the most amazing days of your life being immersed and inspired by the local culture. Did I mention it is ALL INCLUSIVE? For the very reasonable price asked, all of your meals, transport,... More

From there he drove us to Pennag main land and George Town(about 1-1.5 hrs). First we visited diamond factory. Then we had spicy... More

I arranged directly with the guide Selva to do this tour. I was staying in Langkawi and wanted to take a day tour to Penang. The whole tour was definitely worthwhile. From start to finish Selva shared his cultural, gastronomical and historical knowledge of Penang. A lot of sites are fit into the tour including the amazing Kek Lok Si... More

My husband and I came on this trip as part of our honeymoon last year. The trip is an excellent and easy way to see Penang, and very informative, and a very good way to experience much of the local food. We were picked up by our guide Selva very early from our hotel. We first stopped for an Indian... More

We can thoroughly recommend this day trip. It’s starts very early from your hotel however the infectious guide, Selvam, soon wakes you up with his enthusiasm. Don’t worry that you may miss breakfast at your hotel as you start the “Food” part of the tour as soon as you get to the ferry port. The ferry journey is a surprisingly... More
