I was captivated by Eddies colourful description of Malaysia’s economy and got a good understanding of how things worked here in Penang. He was very relaxed and funny. The views are very calming and the ride made me feel like a kid again.

TC was a fantastic tour guide, prompt pick up with good communication, he even brought us some local breakfast snacks. The cycle tour was very informative and interesting through parts of the area you'd not normally see. TC was very knowledgeable and helpful along the way. Highly recommend!

This delivered on what I was hoping for...to get out of the tourist parts and see what happens on the West side of the island. The host TC was excellent. He was knowledgeable, funny, and entertaining. The pickup was on time and in a nice vehicle. The bikes were in fairly good condition and maintained and there was no hard riding. Just a nice meander through the countryside and a few local farms and villages with lots of information from the host. Would recommend.

Very interesting trip. Good guide, who told interesting things about the village life andthe country and its inhabitants. Very well organised; I was picked up from my temporary home. Careful driver. The bikes we used were ordinary bikes, like locals. So don't expect flashy e-bikes. Terrain was flat, so easy to do. Anyone cando it. we got free coffee and ice cream. I felt very well taken care of. Excellent job!

I expected just a bike ride through the countryside but it was a guided tour, too. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed a coffee stop and nice conversation about local culture.
