Penang Tour Guides (22 May 2011)


Embark on a journey of discovering Penang with a personal Penang Tour Guide. When you hire a Penang tour guide, you get a personalized tour that is more to your interest and convenience.

Although the Penang Travel Tips website provides free information on just about every nook and cranny in Penang, there is nothing quite like having someone in the flesh to show you around. Let me tell you in advance that a licensed professional Penang tour guide is not cheap, but he/she can offer you an intimate insight into Penang and particularly George Town, helping you appreciate and experience its culture beyond the surface level.

There are two types of tours: the walking tours of George Town and the tours by private car. The prices are as follows:
