Excellent Bike Tour

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.

Fun and easy cycle along back roads and quiet country paths. We had kopi and kaya toast at a very funky cafe in a pretty little fishing village and visited a goat farm. Our guide Eddie was very knowledgeable and friendly. Good drive there and back a different route so saw a lot of the island. Easy day.

Eddie was kind, professional, knowledgeable and passionate about Penang. The tour covered the car trip to and from Balik Pulau, a short, leisurely and extremely picturesque bicycle ride through the village, a walk around the village and two farm visits. Eddie was kind enough to drive the more scenic route back to Georgetown through Batu Ferringhi. He patiently answered my many questions and gave the best service.

Good morning ride through local countryside

Good day,picked up from the hotel on time and goy to the west of the island smoothly. The bikes were lined up and off we went. The pace was easy and it was very flat. It was interesting to see the countryside with the cows, fish farms and rivers. We stopped to see different things including a fishing village, a goat farm, a fruit farm and a local village where we stopped fora tea. Overall it was a good morning. If I was to do it again I would not have the bikes with the fat tyres, they were harder to pedal.

Wonderful half day with Eddie who picked us up at our hotel and drove us over a hill to the backside of the island. On arrival we were given a bike and water and off we went through beautiful countryside seeing many sights and animals on the way.

What a great experience! For our family of teenage boys, this was a fun way to expend some energy in an authentic rural Malaysian setting. Gave us a real insight into daily village life too. Our host was enthusiastic, helpful and knowledgeable. Excellent value too.

We start from AUDI FARM (1 hour from Butterworth Penang). Weather is very cruicial. Journey total 2.5 hours with several stops at Palm Oil Plantation, Goat Farm, Malay en Chinese Fishing Village. Bicycles are not suitable enough for children below 145 cm or not strong enough to hold adult bicycles. Track 80% flat and seldom met cars, etc. View is not spectacular but surely suitable for family fun. At our time we were given complimentary : mineral water (starting) & Half journey we got goat milk based ice cream, yoghurt, pudding.

Really enjoyed this tour. Prompt pick up from the hotel. Chew was a great guide, stopping often to point things out along the route. Which was welcome as Im not that confident on a bike but loved the area and was a great way of exploring the countryside of Penang. Highly recommend

Wonderful experience, learn bits about history, culture, palm trees, etc. and kudos to the guide. Only thing to improve on is the condition of the bikes as they don't really go well with the bumpiness of the road during the tour.

We took a morning tour and with the heat this was a good choice. Chew was a very chirpy guide and gave us lots of info about the wildlife, plants, locals and cultures. The ride was mostly flat lanes and there was very little traffic to spoil the tranquility. The highlight was the visit to the goat farm which was run very well with the animals welfare obviously being thought about as a priority, the young lady on the farm was like a little Dr do little and the animals all swarmed to her for attention from the goats to the ostrich, rabbits, cats and dogs. A very welcome goats milk ice cream which was delicious and cooled us down was a welcome treat before the ride back.
