The dock is right next to George Town. No need for paid excursions, you can walk right into the city. Amazing day exploring. The Chew Jetties were great, and the food and shopping was really good value. The pier is so close, we actually returned to the ship for lunch and a swim, then venture out for another few hours. There is a free city bus that stops literally 300m to 500m from the exit of the pier. Read Less

Hired a taxi for the day from the port. Driver stayed with us all day. Way cheaper than booking a Princess excursion. You can stipulate which tourist areas you want to visit and the amount of time you wish to stay at each stop.

We arranged a private tour with a Tours By Local guide. Poh was excellent. We elected to do the historical tour, and she was very organized, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable. There are some very interesting places to see in Georgetown. The Clan houses, the Peranakan museum, the temples, and the clan jetties were very memorable. Over several trips we have found that Tours By Local guides are great for private tours, and in most cases they are pretty reasonable in price. Read Less

Loved it, especially because there was no tender and we could walk into town. Took the hop on bus, but had trouble with the map because the stops weren’t always accurately portrayed. Give the botanical gardens a miss.
