Bike ride was easy, fun, and educational. The countryside was beautiful and we had a blast even though it rained during part of our ride. Would recommend for a fun day out.
This morning ride through the countryside to see the farming industries outside of George Town was a really wonderful experience. The guide was friendly, informative and welcoming. The rain held off until our ride back to the vans but the pochos provided were a great help.
A great view of the countryside and what Malaysia looked like before it was built up. Eddie gave lots of info and answered questions. The bike riding was gentle. Had a cup of coffee and pastry at the shipping village and some ice cream at the goat farm. Well worth getting out of the city to see the countryside.
This was such a cool experience! The tour guide was super knowledgeable and you see a different type of Malaysian life
Loved this tour. Great to get out into the countryside and the bike ride was a lovely leisurely pace. Would definitely recommend as one of the best things to do in Penang.
Eddie was a friendly guide. He brought us around less-trodden kampung spots. Casual cycling so anyone can go really. Stopping by a goat farm was quite memorable. Overall a pleasant experience for those who yearn for some kampung experience.
MUST DO WHEN VISITING PENANG! Eddie was a fantastic host and the bicycle ride around the back side of Penang island is something that everyone who visits must experience for themselves! There is no other tour like it on the island, and it provides you a way to balance out your city excursions with a tour that is more peaceful and serene. Learning about the fisherman jetties, villages, and experiencing feeding the goats at the goat farm were the highlights. Eddie makes sure you are taken care of and safe the entire time. Great solo, couples, or family event!
I am extremely unhappy with Tripadvisor and the organisers of this bike tour. The tour was cancelled on the morning of the ride due to predicted bad weather but the day turned out to be the best of the week. When I confirmed the cancellation with Tripadvisor and sought a full refund ( as I had already rebooked this tour and did not have another day available) it initially seemed to be processing. The next day I received a message showing I had a refund of $0.00!! In the days when Viator was not owned by Tripadvisor this would would never have happened. I have had similar cancellations by tour organisers in the past,particularly for bad weather, which were fully refunded. I am also slightly suspicious that the tour was cancelled on what turned out to be a perfectly fine day, possibly because the organisers did not have the numbers. Never booking Viator/Tripadvisor again. I would rate the trip zero if this an option.
Thank you Eddie. This was an awesome, must do experience. Eddie is a wonderful and patient guide. He is a well of information.
Had a wonderful time touring Balik Pulau. The morning breeze, the scenery, the local coffee, puff and the whole kampung vibe. Eddie is knowledgable and an awesome guide! Definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants different scenery other than wall mural, cafes, food in Penang.
