transfert de Kuala lumpur à Penang en véhicule privé avec chauffeur

Tout c'est très bien passé, Daytrip nous a fourni une photo du chauffeur et le type de véhicule qui est venu nous prendre à la réception de notre hôtel à l'heure convenue par avance.Le conducteur était prudent, parlait bien anglais et nous a donné des renseignements sur l'histoire, la géographie des lieux traversés en cours de route. Bref un voyage agréable pour un prix équivalent à ce que les taxis et vol par avion nous auraient coûté et pour un temps et des tracasserie bien moindre. Je recommande sans problème cette solution de transport en Malaisie..

Penang Island To Kuala Lumpur

We made a tour from Penang Island to Kuala Lumpur, and it was amazing! Alan (our driver) was very nice, friendly and funny, spoke good English and the ride was quick and efficient. I would recommend this way of traveling to anyone. The price was more then fair and we could stop and eat whenever we wanted. Really cool way to go around!

Great service

Our experience with Daytrip was great! We used it to get from Naples to Sorrento and Sorrento back to Naples. The drivers were on time and professional. The communications were clear. Thank you.

Amazing trip from Skopje to Belgrade!

My husband & I booked a DayTrip from Skopje, Macedonia to Belgrade, Serbia. We drove with a man by the name of Filip and he was awesome! Not only did he help us move through the border so quickly, he was polite and provided us with water for the trip! DayTrip goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable getting into a strangers vehicle. They provide you with a picture of your driver, make and color of vehicle and license plate number a few days before your trip is to occur. We would absolutely utilize DayTrip again!

The Daytrip driver advantage

Daytrip driver
  • Local knowledge about the route from Penang to Kuala Lumpur
    Including available sights
  • English speaking

    All our drivers speak English as well as their native language (and sometimes additional languages too!). They're happy to discuss local history and culture with you, and answer any questions you may have. And because they speak the local language, they're able to provide you with a unique opportunity to connect with natives.

  • Safety first!

    We screen all our drivers for criminal and traffic records, and personally interview each one. We also inspect their cars for safety, comfort, and reliability. All cars must be less than ten years old, in excellent operating condition, and insured as required by local law. And because our drivers are locals, they're familiar with the rules and customs of the road.
