Booked Ocean Jupiter for 2 days of sightseeing. Driver was courteous and informative at all times. Recommended the best itinery for us to get the most out of our days. Would recommend using them to visit sights on the island

For our trips we used Ocean Jupiter which I booked online in advance. They charge £6 an hour (30 RM) for driver in air conditioned car. They sent Michael who is in, great demand. He has lived in the UK so his English is excellent.
He took us exactly where we wanted to go (with no shopping stops as requested) and added local things he though we would like to see. He even bought us lunch in a local cafe in Gerogetown and mini custard tarts after driving us around to see all the sight so we just got out of the car to take photos.
On the second trip he took us to orangutan island then back to snake temple and lunch on the way back. He has brilliant local knowledge and lots of ideas and enthusiasm.
We are a well travelled couple in our early 50's and he was the best driver we have EVER had.

We also visited Penang off the Celebrity Millenium on January 16th and had Michael Fong from Ocean Jupiter as our guide for the day. As another reviewer mentioned, traffic was very heavy due to a Hindu festival taking place at the time. Our group consisted of two seniors, a 4 yr old and my husband and I. Michael did a great job of making sure everyone's needs were met and we saw all we wanted to given the traffic challenges. We also had an appointment at the School of Hard Knocks (where you get to bang out your own bowls) at the Royal Selangor Visitor Center, and Michael did an admirable job of timing everything out just right for us. In addition to the fantastic sights, Michael also made sure we were well fed with egg tarts (the best ever!) and a great hawker stall lunch. I'm a nervous passenger by nature, and Michael was a very careful driver. We had a great experience with Ocean Jupiter and I highly recommend them.

We had a day here having arrived on the Celebrity Millenium on 16th January and had arranged with this company to take us round Penang. Penang was getting ready for a religious festival so traffic was heavy but this was not a problem. We discussed this with MIKE our brilliant driver for the day. He knew all the short cuts to avoid the busy parts and we came up for us with a perfect itinery. We went to Penang Hill, wonderful. He waited while we went up there and spent some time and collected us when we returned down. We went to a Malaysian Batik factory, en route to Batu Ferringi Beach on the northern part of the island. We spent some time at Kek Lok Si Temple. A really laid back day, enjoyed it all.
Good luck to this company, they deserve to do well.

Mike was an awesome guide that shared his personal experience & knowledge to highlight the unique offerings of George Town. We (5 crazy ladies) loved him & I couldn't imagine anyone else putting up with us & our differing ideas of what we wanted to experience in Penang.
We put our trust in Mike & he did not disappoint! He is current in his personality but has a huge grasp on the history of the area that encompasses more than just the average tour guide rhetoric.
He is a stand up guy who honestly loves to host people in his home town.
Don't bother looking elsewhere, he is the best:)
