I am a LICENSED city tour guide by Ministry of Tourism & Culture, Malaysia. I have been calling George Town, Penang - UNESCO World Heritage Site, my home for more than 30 years now.
I provide TOUR GUIDING SERVICE + TRANSPORTATION for tours, focusing mainly on Penang island and Penang mainland. With transportation, it is definitely more convenient and enjoyable to experience what Penang has to offer within the shortest time. While one may travels George Town heritage enclave by foot, there are many places of interest located outside George Town such as Penang Hill, Kek Lok Si Temple, Tropical Spice Garden, Tropical Fruit Farm and Entopia Butterfly Farm. Customers can choose either to do half-day, full-day or multiple-days tour of Penang island and/or Penang mainland, depending on how many hours or days they have in Penang. For example:
1) Half-day (4 hours) tour *INCLUDING* transport + driver/tour guide for CITY OF GEORGE TOWN AND HERITAGE AREA TOUR, PENANG's HILLS AND TEMPLES TOUR, PENANG's HOUSE OF THE RICH AND FAMOUS TOUR and PENANG's HAWKER FOOD TOURS.
2) Full-day (8 hours) tour *INCLUDING* transport, driver, tour guide + for CITY OF GEORGE TOWN AND HERITAGE AREA TOUR, PENANG ROUND ISLAND TOUR, PENANG's HAWKER FOODS TOUR, PENANG's TEMPLES AND HILLS TOUR, PENANG's HOUSE OF THE RICH AND FAMOUS TOUR and on Penang mainland - the PENANG FIREFLY TOUR and ORANGUTAN SANCTUARY ISLAND TOUR.
3) MULTIPLE full-day tour (quoted as per day rate of 8 hours tour).
All my tours are private and can be customized and no two tours are alike. Come explore Penang, the Pearl of the Orient indeed!
A Recent Review of this guide
Absolutely loved the 2 half days in Penang. Max was brilliant - he gave us a flavor of the City while taking into cognizance the composition of the group. He is extremely knowledgeable and knows how to engage the group. He customized our tours well . It was an absolute pleasure meeting Max. Would recommend him to any group wanting to get the flavor of Penang/ Georgetown
