Quite a good tour. About 5 hours. A guided tour up to the largest monestry in Malaysia. There is a Big Buddha right at the top, only accessible via a funicular rail. A short one. Up there, there is a nice view of Penang. You don't see the Mariner unfortunately. Then is off to the Expensive Chocolate Shop. Next to the Local Product shop of Penang with their famous Tau Sar Piah. Finally is off to a local food court for lunch. Order the famous dishes like chendol, Penang Laksa, and Char kway teow. Food was not bad. Extra charge though.

Limited time at the temples but very informative guided tour. Nice gesture with a bottle of water and wet towel. Cable car to top of mountain and my mobility challenged husband was able to ride in a golf cart to see the views at the very top. Our driver was easy to understand and stopped along the way to show wildlife in the bush and advise interesting little facts of trivia.
