Gary L.

Penang, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia

Greetings from the beautiful island - Penang! Hi everyone!

My name is Gary L. I have been guiding since 2008. Prior to my present career, I was involved in many industries such as education, marketing, publication, oil & gas training, manufacturing etc. Finally, at last I decided to venture myself into Tourism Industry in 2008 due to the huge number of tourists ever since Penang have been awarded by UNESCO as World Heritage Site on that year.

I am registered tourist guide licensed under the Ministry of Tourism and Culture of Malaysia, currently a member of Penang Tourist Guides Association. I speak fluently in English, Malays, Chinese and local dialects, such as Hokkien & Cantonese. Being a host, I would be very glad to bring you around to experience the hospitality of the local people, the foods, the culture and tourist attractions in Penang.

A Recent Review of this guide

My husband and I had a great time on our tour with Gary! Gary was super knowledgeable answering all the questions we had, spoke fluent English and was very friendly. We went to Kek Lok Si Temple and many places to taste authentic Penang street food - Delicious! Gary's vehicle was nice and he prepared a delicious lemon grass juice blend for us before we met him, a nice surprise. We would highly recommend Gary to others that are thinking about visiting Penang!
