Guide from George town, Chong was excellent. He explained to us all the history about the points of interest we visited and took us to a real local restaurant that only offer genuine local food and drink like Laksa, gwai due and jin do drink. Before going back to the ship, he entertained our request taking us to a corner store to try the best fruit in Malaysia, Durian. I have no doubt in recommending this half day city tour to folks browsing for unforgettable memories in George Town
