Great overview of Penang. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Deffrey in Penang. He met us after getting off our cruise ship for the day and kept us busy and engaged all day long.

We had a fantastic day with Deffrey showing us all the wonders of Penang! He met us at our hotel and let us straight in on the plans for the day but no way could we have imagined he could pack so much in to the day!
We began with a walk along the Clan Jetties and it was a beautiful scene to learn all his knowledge on the area and everything that could be seen. We wondered all the streets and alleys and saw beautiful street art that was completed by local artists in the area and along the way saw various shops selling traditional goods. I was amazed by his knowledge and felt that we learned so much about the area and all cultures and traditions enveloped by it.
We saw secluded, untouched areas, markets, mansions and food shops we have now revisited since for pure enjoyment. Deffrey was very friendly and welcoming and was answering many of our continuous questions throughout the entire day and left us alive with facts.

What can I say about Deffrey We had a great day out with Deffrey, made a couple of tweaks to his itinerary as we fancied stopping at the Hin Bus Depot to hang out with the cool Malay hipsters.
We loved Kek Lok temple and Deffrey kindly dissuaded us against going up Penang hill as it was misty and views would be limited. Later we stopped for some street food and to say we are fussy eaters is an understatement but Deffrey was extremely patient and organised some local delicacies to suit our requirements! In conclusion our day out with Deffrey was fantastic and I can confidently recommend him to other visitors. Penang with Deffrey.

Upon booking my tour with Deffrey, he contacted me within minutes to ask about what I wanted to see and confirmed his availability really quickly. He picked me up as arranged from my hotel lobby and we then headed to Penang Hill and Kek Lok Si in his very comfortable air-conditioned car, giving lots of information about the places we visited, Penang and Malaysia in general.
We grabbed some lunch in Georgetown and as I had never been to Penang before but wanted to try the different foods, we ordered 4 different typical dishes from the area to share. Upon my request, he also showed me some remote areas of Georgetown, as well as the most well-known attractions in Georgetown. He also gave great advice on what to do on my own the next day. I really enjoyed my day out with Deffrey and wouldn't have seen and tried so much food, if it weren't for him. He really tried to accommodate my preferences, whenever possible and was looking after my general well-being, with water and an umbrella always at hand.

Deffrey met with us at the port and provided a tour of the area in a clean, comforatble and air conditioned car. In a very hot part of country this was very much appreciated.

This was our first time using With Locals, and we were pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to arrange a tour with Deffrey. My husband and I flew into Penang for a day trip from Kuala Lumpur and Deffrey picked us up and dropped us off at the airport promptly.
My husband keeps telling people that we would have not had such a comprehensive tour in such a short time without Deffrey. We were given the flexibility to stay or leave various places, and Deffrey made sure we had enough stops to rest or shop. He is very knowledgeable about his hometown and answered our many questions.
Deffrey also took some wonderful photos for us with the lovely street art and took us to the best places to eat. Perhaps the biggest compliment, two weeks after the trip, my husband of few words has not yet stopped talking about the food stops Deffrey took us to. If we are back in Penang, we will definitely give Deffrey a call for another tour and you should too!

Although hawker food can be found throughout the island, the mere mention of Gurney Drive brings visions of mouth-watering food to the initiated.
