My family spent a lovely day in Penang with Gim Seng. He is very knowledgeable, enthusiastic,and professional,and has a great sense of humor.From our right-on-time meeting where he was waiting for us at the cruise ship pier until our drop-off in the afternoon, we felt that we were fortunate to have met a capable and experienced guide.
