Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great way to explore Balik Palau. Very relaxing ride and Eddy is a fantastic guide, he answered all the many questions I had and added more information.

I learnt a lot, I had a great casual ride in the country side and it was fun. Bonus extras for being picked up and dropped off from Georgetown. Fully recommends this experience.

I have been many times to Penang but this was the first time that I ventured to Balik Pulau. With friends, we booked a bike ride with Explore Balik Pulau.

Eddy, our guide for the tour, came to pick us at 7.00 am at the hotel. Then we drove to the meeting point where we chose our bikes. Our group was about ten people. Don’t expect the latest bikes but they will make the trick because we were cycling on a flat terrain. We often had a stop to listen to Eddy, who was explaining tradition and culture in Balik Pulau while simply enjoying the view in the morning. I did not know that durian trees can grow so tall. 😃

It would have been great to cycle to the sea.

A great activity, we had lots of fun. Highly recommended!

We did the cycling tour of Balik Pulau and we loved it. It’s very chilled, okay for all levels. We saw macaques, monitor lizard, and then went to a goat farm where we saw hedgehogs and sugar gliders.
Saw palms plantations, fishing village, local temple, nutmeg, durian and jackfruit trees.
It’s such a different vibe from Georgetown. Highly recommended.
Our guide TC was great, super chilled, super nice, great English. Thank you for a wonderful day out!

We weren't sure what we were signing up for given Penang Island has a huge hill range... but it was an easy flat ride. We were collected at our hotel in Georgetown at 6:45am for the onward journey across the northern tip of the island in the dark (so we got to see sunrise!). It took around 45 minutes to get to the start point, collecting a few others along the way. The bikes are varied - mountain bikes, fat tyred bikes, road bikes, bikes with no gears... helmets were offered, but not compulsory so declined. The bikes could do with some better maintenance, brakes were a little suspect.. but OK for the task of riding along narrow farm lanes and private roads. In the 10k ride we visited a palm plantation, fishing villages and a dairy goat farm (& petting zoo) - try the goat milk ice cream its delish!. Our guide was very informative, and gave good insights into the diversity of cultures & cultural practices in the area. Highly recommended.

A very relaxing cycling experience in the idyllic countryside of Penang. My teen boys totally enjoyed the cycling and being away from the crowded Georgetown. The group is small and comfortable, Guide Chew is very experienced, we learnt so much from him about Penang during this trip.
