See the beautiful countryside

Wonderful morning seeing villages, farms and meeting the locals in Penang. Eddie is a fun and informative guide and the terrain is easy for all ages. Highly recommend this one
Good morning ride through local countryside
, Feb 2020
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.
Amazing bike ride through Penang countryside

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.

See the real Penang

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.

A bikeride is the perfect way to visit the Countryside. We got a lot of interesting informations about culture and nature from our guide. Nice and calm alternative to most tourist attractions
Close look at Balik Pulau Penang

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...

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.
