We have just spent 3 days touring Penang as a family, we used Ocean Jupiter to drive us around and show us the sites. I cannot speak highly enough of this company and driver (Sultan). Very interesting and informative plus a very safe driver indeed. Sultan was akin to a concierge service as well as he very kindly assisted with Restuarant bookings and helping to retrieve lost property....I have no hesitation in recommending this company and Sultan as a driver....both great ambassadors for Penang.

Our group of nine, four adult five kids enjoyed the service by the most professional and passionate tour guide, Mr Sultan of Ocean Jupiter Tour, on our trip in Penang is great because of his time with us. We are a group of nine, two family of Canadian and Englander. We stayed at Rasa Shangri-la across the street from their store. We were referred but didnt expect such service we experienced. We visited numerous place. We enjoyed stories, history and had great conversation with Sultan. Basically, he went the extra step on whatever he does. What more do one need for a relaxing holiday....ask for him by NAME. You won't be disappointed. Cheers. (4/20/2014)

We pre-booked two tours. The first was with Michael and he took us to a temple and Penang Hill in a clean and comfy car. He told us where to find a Converse shop at which we bought sneakers at about sixty percent of what we could buy them at home. He also taught us heaps about Penang culture and food.
Luckily, Jack rang me before the second tour and said we might not be able to get to Orangan Island because of the drought. He rang and confirmed this and was apologetic and allowed me to cancel the booking with no fuss or cost. But then we just turned up to their office one day to try and arrange a driver on the day and they went out of their way to assist. SK was the driver and also very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The car was even better than the first one! We would recommend Ocean Jupiter to anyone staying in Penang.

its was rather a last min tour arrangement but steven/jack is quick to reply via email. maybe i should request for the driver whom everybody recommend in below reviews... the dim sum restaurant he brought us there food is so-so, the Peranakan restaurant also so-so ... i also puzzled why we need to pay extra 1HR rate when we request to cross the 2nd bridge to look-see... the driver just say its boss instruction.... we just go ahead as we already there ... i kind of heard the extra 1 hr includes the toll charges but in end we will asked to pay RM8.50 for the toll...
