Private Georgetown Heritage Tour

Spend the day in the capital city of Penang and watch history come alive, as you wander the streets of one of the oldest cities in Malaysia.

Peruse the priceless antiques and artifacts at Peranakan Mansion, where you will gain an appreciation for the cultural assimilation between Malays and the early Chinese settlers. If your tour is in the afternoon, check out the various murals depicting the simple Penang lifestyle that dress up the streets. If your tour is in the morning, visit the impressive Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion, also known as the Blue Mansion, built at the end of the 19th century. Stop at Fort Cornwallis and take a photo of the antique cannons decorating the massive fort walls. Pause at Old Protestant Cemetery on your way back to port. Thought by many to be one of the oldest cemeteries in existence, this burial ground with about 500 graves is where Captain Francis Light, Penang's founder, was laid to rest.

Book this private tour now for an informative and photographic look at early life in Penang.

Please Note: Due to the restricted opening hours for the Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion, this stop will be replaced with a visit to the street art murals for guests whose ships arrive after 2:00 PM.
