This tour was absolutely incredible! It started by going to Penang Hill, where there was gorgeous views, some stunning structures, and amazing food. This was followed by a visit to the Kek Lok Si temple which was jaw dropping. My amazing guide than took me to a Thai temple, with a Burmese temple right across the road. Those temples were absolutely beautiful and I am so glad I got to see them. All of these locations are a must see. The day was made even better by my guide, Ronni Rajit, who always answered my questions, provided some interesting commentary and even showed me around a bit in George Town + recommend places for me to go on my own.

The driver/guide made our tour so enjoyable! Kuban was very knowledgeable about the history, religion, and culture of Penang, Malaysia. Taking this private tour with Kuban was well worth the price, and much more enjoyable than touring with a big group bus tour. I highly recommend this tour, and ask for Kuban!

Had a great day with a passionate guide. Who also improvises because of a rain shower. Nice background of history and beautiful temples and spots.

We recommend. The best guide so far and his English was the best so far. Great service and price is reasonable. 👍

Personal, very dedicated driver with very good English. Open time-management. All right.
