We offer a quality and personable service for visitors who prefer a flexible approach to their local experience when they travel.

We specialise in creating tailor-made itineraries to suit your particular interests or you may choose from one of our carefully crafted half or full day standard programs designed to give you a unique insight into the Pearl of the Orient – Penang.
