It was lovely riding through the countryside with Eddie - we saw and tried so many new things (holding Javanese Cotton pods in my hands... so fluffy!...tasting nutmeg flowers straight off the tree... tasting goats milk from a local farm...), it is just a great change cycling out in the countryside after being indoors for so many months. There’s a good breeze this time of the year so the temperature was very comfortable too. Thank you Eddie for the great experience and great stories!!

A great short trip to see a the more rural side of Penang Island. the early morning start made it a pleasant experience with plenty of narration along the way. The route is a gentle one, on flat mostly tarmac roads. Highly recommended as a nice short morning excursion. Eddie is great and so easy going.

A great morning out seeing a part of Penang island that tourists rarely visit. Eddie collected us from our apartment just before 7am and dropped us back after noon. Easy cycling through a palm oil plantation, past a fish farm, visiting Malaysian and Chinese fishing villages and a goat farm, with a stop for refreshments. Eddie was an amusing and knowledgeable guide.

One in a lifetime experience! Wouldn’t have been able to do this tour on our own. Eddie was a fantastic host and was very accommodating—had water for us and snacks along the way. Learned a lot about Malay culture and was refreshing to get out of the city. 11/10 recommend.
