Culture, history and nature tour in UNESCO World Heritage Site. TOUR VAN included.


In 2008, George Town was awarded the UNESCO World Heritage Site listing. This maritime-trading city was developed during the colonial era and are older than most cities in Malaysia. As a result, it has retained a unique cityscape and multicultural heritage.

George Town represents exceptional examples of multi-cultural trading towns in East and Southeast Asia. It is a living testimony to the multi-cultural heritage and tradition of Asia, and European colonial influences. A mixture of unique architecture, culture and townscape was also created without parallel anywhere in East and South Asia.

# Highly recommended for cruise passengers (Princess, Oceania etc).

# Please contact me for multi-day tours or destinations such as Penang, Kuala Lumpur, Malacca, Cameron Highlands, Langkawi etc.

A Recent Review of this tour

Lawrence made sure the tour itinerary and to plan and was prepared to make adjustments when there was haze on the day. He made sure our group of 10 was always safe and looked after, including my dad who in the late 70s and can't walk far. He was always kind to the children and understood about my son with autism. I would highly recommend him as your guide!
