Our tour in Penang was fabulous. Lawrence was waiting for us at the prearranged time and place on the dockside. Lawrence was an excellent guide, he was very knowledgeable about Penang and the rest of the Malay Peninsula. We drove out of The city and off first to visit the Orangutans, the facility is well run and is not a zoo the animals are rehabilitated and released. We then drove back to Penang for lunch, took the Train to the top of the hill, where the views were spectacular. Thank You Lawrence !
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks. Your review is my best reward.

We had a very good trip with Lawrence to the Orang Utan Island to see the sanctuary there and heard all about the efforts that are being made to grow the Orang Utan population. We were only in Georgetown Port for the day and Lawrence ensure that we were back on board in good time for sailing. He is very knowledgeable about the sanctuary and the orang utans and we can thoroughly recommend his tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I wish you were a TERMINATOR and told me "I'LL BE BACK" the moment you walked back to the ship.

Lawrence is an outstanding tour guide. He met us promptly at the cruise ship terminal and my family and I found him friendly and easy to talk with. He is really passionate and knowledgeable about the places he took us to. We were able to customize the tour to what we wanted to see and he was able to suggest places we might be interested in. Orang Utan Island was a highlight as well as Art Street and Chinese clan house. He is definitely the man you want to guide you around Penang with. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Best wishes from Lawrence & Orang Utans!

An excellent guide - I have never used tours by locals before but if this is the high standard of tour guide I will in future. Very knowledgable, courteous and helpful (inc finding vegetarian restaurant) and on time ! Recommended to others to use ��
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Mr Snelling. It was really my honour guiding nice people like you and Shetal.
We did not have a fixed plan of travel, so getting Lawrence as our guide was the best surprise. He is very knowledgable and extremely accomodating. As a residence of Penang, he knew all the nooks and cranies of this beautiful town. As we had a limited time, he just took as straight to the good local spot. On the visit to Khoo mansion, his commentary was invaluable, not the rush-in and out type but in-depth with his own personal tidbit.
