We had a wonderful tour in Penang with Lawrence L. He is very friendly and eager to please. He is very knowledgeable about Malaysian history and all the sites. We went on a trishaw ride which was fun. He also took us to the famous wall mural of kids on a bicycle where we had our picture taken. We had a delicious char kway teow lunch at a hotel up in Penang Hill. The best meals we've had in Malaysia. We would definitely recommend Lawrence as your tour guide if you happen to be in Penang.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Vivian. Hope to see you again.

We had Laurence show us around Penang whilst our ship docked for only a few hours. Even though time was limited, Laurence did a brilliant job of including a really good look around a vast amount of Penang and made sure he got us back to our ship in plenty time before sailing. He was totally professional, on time, knowledgeable of all sites, informative and fun. Would happily recommend him to anyone visiting Penang.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Vivienne and John. I hope you like the firefly tour.

Lawrence was a fabulous tour guide. He invested a lot of time and effort not only in a detailed itinerary for my guests but also in making sure we all were well informed and entertained, bringing the history of Penang, and it's cultural heritage, to life. I highly recommend him as a guide, in particular if you are organising a party or need a bespoke itinerary.

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

Lawrence was great and is highly recommended. He took us to all the best locations while seemingly avoiding the crowds. We usually were leaving as large crowds were arriving, which worked out very well. We also had a great experience eating lunch at the Petronas Towers. The food was very good and so inexpensive. Lunch was roughly the equivalent of $2. Thank you Lawrence!

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.

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.

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.

This was a good day spent in Penang, visiting a very beautiful temple and walking through the city. However, not as good as the other tours we took on our trip to Asia. The downside was the lunchtime, when we were taken to a very touristic food court, that was far from being appealing (we love street food and had asked for good recommendations on the capital of the noodles when we booked the tour). We ended up eating at Starbucks. A good tour, but could have been better.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank-you for taking the time to leave your honest feedback about your tour experience. I am sorry that you were not 100% satisfied, 5 star experiences are very important to me and I do my very best to provide such services. The Food Court has always been a hit with my other travelers, it is not Western food, it is entirely local food. Even the locals eat here often. I did not take you to other places as they are considered unhygienic, I will keep this thought though for the future.

Lawrence was a wonderful tour guide and we booked a higher end, air conditioned vehicle which proved indispensable for escaping the heat. We started out with a Trishaw ride across town--how fun! He knew just the right places to venture for when we needed a break from the heat, a quick trip for some drinks or some cheap shopping. He also left us with expansive knowledge of where else to visit and shop for the remaining days of our vacation in Penang. Thank you for a wonderful tour!

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.

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.

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!

Lawrence of Malaysia, is very organized and caters to clients even before they arrive. He makes very sure that you know where to meet so there is no chance of getting confused at this port. He is very knowledgeable and loves what he does and conveyed that to us. We had a great time with him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Mr. Lebow (or "Lebuh" in Malay language which means "Street"). Hope to see you again.

We enjoyed our tour of Penang. Though most is walk-able from where cruise ships dock, per our request, our guide took us through the temples further away as well as showing us places in town we likely could not have found on our own within the one-day time restraints.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Vincent. I hope to see you again in Penang. Please send my best regards to others.
