We were lucky enough to have Lawrence drive us around the island of Penang! He is very friendly, very informative and knowledgeable . The car was comfy which is important if u are in it for 4 hrs!!!!
We travelled thru Batu Feringgi, up and around the top of the island and down again, making a few stops along the way - batik factory, fishing village, snake temple , spice garden - all were very interesting. The tour gave us a great overall insight into Penang. It was an excellent tour with an excellent tour guide. Thankyou Lawrence And Viator!

Loved this tour. Guide was excellent picked me up at my hotel early. We drove all the way around the island, and I got to see the northern beaches, the western fruit farms, and a western Muslim village, Great overview of Penang Island. The guide was excellent about pointing out a lot of extras such as architectural marvels, and back in George Town he let me out at a food market to try a local specialty and with directions for the short walk back to my hotel.
