  • Nasi lemak! Char Kuey Teow! Apom! So so happy with my tour with Sam as the whole family got to try all the local food the Penang way.
  • Was pleasantly surprised by how comfortable Sam planned our exploration around Penang for my family of 4! My kids enjoyed the trip so so much, they are requesting to go back to Penang during the Christmas holidays.
  • It was our first time in Penang, was so glad to stumble upon Sam’s humble travel business. Everything was so well planned for me and my partner, never felt more like a local ever!
