The Penang Island Tour drove around the area pointing out places of interest, gave the history of the island and its people, and included a buffet lunch. It was a very good coverage of the island and informed us of many different things as we drove around the area. The buffet was in a large reception area of a hotel. It took us a while to get to the reception area since the area had been booked for lunch by many different tour groups. It was so booked that it made obtaining food difficult, and it was hard to move around. We were packed like sardines in the buffet and dining areas. Read Less
