Matahari Cycle Tours & Travel Sdn. Bhd. Reviews
Second time on this tour and it was another wonderful experience. Our guide, Princilia, astounds you with her knowledge of the people and customs in the districts we cycled through and her incredible ... more »
What a fantastic experience this is to ride a bicycle through the beautiful padi fields around Seberang Perai, Penang with a group of friendly cycling enthusiasts. The morning drive on the upper deck ... more »
Great day on a bike! seeing the cottage industry on Penang Island & learning about a forgotten way of life compared to the tourist industry was a real eye opener. Coffee outdoors by a clear flowing stream instead of an A/C coffee shop was one of many highlights. Lunch under a shade structure in the middle of a rice paddy. Easy riding with plenty of stops for drinks/food. Small group made for great interaction between everyone.
Best tour we've ever done: Princilia is not only a very capable ride leader, keeping everyone (cyclists of all levels) safe and motivated on the bike, but is also an extraordinary cultural guide, who will teach you fascinating aspects of local history, nature, food, farming and lifestyle. She also does it with a charming sense of humour, which will keep you smiling throughout the whole tour. The whole team is very charismatic, supportive and friendly. An important issue in tours that get you in touch with local communities is that the interaction is done in respectful, not exploitative terms, and Princilia excels at this: everyone in the area seems to know her and greet her cheerfully, and it was heart-warming to casually chat with farmers and foreign workers in a relaxed, spontaneous atmosphere. Two more aspects to highlight: lunch was absolutely delicious (you are offered treats the whole day, but those noodles we ate in the shade in the middle of a rice field...) and the sporty "twist" (tour 2) of the tour allowed us to test the limits of our mountain biking skills. If you are confident on the bike, opt in for the extra climb and you will be rewarded with an adventure you will not forget easily: extreme gradients, single-tracks, stunning views, unexpected encounters with local hikers and farmers... Thanks Princilia and SJ for a truly wonderful day. Terima kasih!!! Julia and Jon
