My wife Christine and I spent a really enjoyable day touring Georgetown in the company of our ToursByLocals guide Laurence. Leonard carefully laid out the Coles Notes version of the history of Penang and how it came to be the melting pot of ethnicities and religious beliefs it is today. We packed in visits to Kek Lok Si Temple, the Peranakan Museum, the Reclining Buddha Temple, a traditional lunch and, of course, the Street Art that adorns the walls of the old town. Lawrence, hanks so much! Terrific day
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Mr Pugh. Please send my regards to Christine.

We have traveled the world with many tour guides on private tours and ship excursions. Laurence L. was the one of best tour guides we have ever had! Considerate and thoughtful with fabulous information about out sights. Three of us did a customized 8 hour ship excursion primarily in Georgetown. After talking with us, Laurence's recommendations for the day were terrific! Be sure to do the bicycle tour through the old city and the straits Chinese museum he recommends.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Mary. This is one of the best reviews I have ever received.
Selma ReedUnited States
Lawrence delivered everything as promised. He met us at our ship, took us around Georgetown to see Chinatown (via trishaw), the clan jetties, the Khoo Kongsi clan house, and the Kek Lok Si Temple on the hill. Lawrence also included the Thai Water Festival at the Thai Temple so that we could celebrate with locals. He did all this with good cheer. Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Korb koon krub, Koon Selma!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hope to see you again, Helene.

Another SUPER EXCELLENT guide as we near the end of our cruise. Lawrence taught us a lot about the multicultural influence in Penang and covered the important highlights in the limited time we had. Lawrence is very knowlegable, very friendly and has a good sense of humor. We are very happy to recommend him unconditionally to future travelers. The Siegals, San Antonio, Texas

Lawrence was superb, our favourite guide of the three tours we took in Malaysia. He was very informative, polite, a good driver and very flexible. Ours was a private tour and he made sure that we covered everything on the tour agenda and willingly took us shopping for spices at our request at the end of the day. He made sure we always had drinks for hydration in the heat, very important. We will use him again when we return to Malaysia.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hope to see you again next year when you visit Malaysia on the sister ship.
We had a wonderful day with Lawrence. We arrived by cruise ship, Lawrence was waiting when we arrived, and had us back on time. He adjusted the itinerary for us as we wanted to go to Penang Hill. Nothing was too much trouble for him. Would definitely recommend Lawrence as a guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Karen. I was very proud to be your guide.

John TagamiUnited States
Lawrence picked us promptly for our 8-hour tour. He was friendly and knowledgeable. We were astonished to learn that he speaks 7+ languages and had a variety interesting life experiences that favorably informed his performance. Clearly he loves being a guide; his unflagging enthusiasm was apparent and refreshing. A note: he was very flexible about our needs and changed our itinerary several times on the fly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your prompt 5-star review (as you promised). Thank you also for your very generous tip at the end of the tour. By the way, I forgot to collect the RM$80 from you for the beer at Suffolk House. But I am much happy buying your family the beer now. Ha ha. You are the most humorous American that I have met... and obviously the luckiest one. ;-)

Lawrence is an excellent guide. We would go out of our way to book him on a return trip. Thus, we recommend him without hesitation!
Marie ChuaUnited States
Lawrence was an excellent guide. He was very descriptive at each site we visited. He also provided us with a history and perspective on Malaysian politics. We appreciated it very much. At one the Quan Yin temple the gift shop had a souvenir on the longest bridge in the world. We asked him about it and despite it not being on the tour, he took us to show both old and new. This is especially significant for my sister as she works for bridges and tunnels authority back home. LawreHe is very obliging.

Lawrence is a great guide and driver. He found things for us to see that no tourist would find alone, and the lunch he organised was perfect. His English was easily understandable, and altogether he made this a perfect tour for us. John and Jean Harris.
Leslie ZuckermanUnited States
We highly recommend Lawrence. He was very professional and extremely knowledgeable. When we finished our itinerary early he then took us someplace else. He truly wanted us to have a great experience in Georgetown which thanks to him we did.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Mr Zuckerman. Hope to see you again in Penang.
Melanne MillerUnited States
Wow! Lawrence was great! He did a great job sharing information and taking us to the top spots in George Town and Penang. My husband uses a mobility scooter and Lawrence knew where we needed to go for the sites to be accessible. He also scheduled things in a way that allowed us to avoid the cruise ship buses. We had a wonderful day with Lawrence and would highly recommend him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Melanne. Hope to see you again in Penang!
