I have experience of city guiding in the inner city of George Town UNESCO World Heritage Site and throughout the country for nearly ten years now and nearly two years of nature guiding in Penang Hill and Penang National Park, the smallest national Park in Peninsula Malaysia. I can conduct the normal city guiding including many kind of heritage tours. I also offer to tourist niche heritage walking tours such as Little India Heritage Trail, Penang Muslim Heritage Trail, Spices Heritage Trail (on vehicle) and LaCaLa (refer itinerary) Walking Tour, streets exploration with many old buildings over hundred years that is replete with history and story that happened of old times.
As a tour guide I am a very friendly, warm and courteous to my tourist and will make them feel like having and old friend to show them around. I am very passionate about my job as a tour guide. I love sharing the many hiSTORY that had happened in Penang over past two hundred years. About the diversity of its people of different ethnics background, their cultural and religious differences yet all these peoples could live in harmony side by side. The many kind of delicious and mouth watering foods that made Penang famous as food heaven.
A Recent Review of this guide
The Penang National Parks tour with Abdul was one of the best day trips we've taken in SE Asia during our 2+ month of traveling. Couldn't have asked for a better guide than Abdul. He was intelligent, knowledgeable, and passionate. He created a masterful itinerary - 2 hr hike though the jungle that was fairly easy but not too easy that you still felt accomplished at the end. The 2 beaches we visited were beautiful and our quick visit to the turtle sanctuary was a highlight. Highly recommend this tour!
I have obtained a guide licence for city/heritage guiding from Ministry of Tourism Malaysia in 2007 and a Nature Guide licence from Department of Wildlife Conservation of Malaysia (Perhilitan) in 2014.I am also a member Penang Tourist Guide Association (PTGA) since 2007.
I am not a driver. I can arrange for a separate car and driver.
All my tours are times between 0900 hrs to 1700 hrs only.
