Enjoyed this tour with Danny his talks re the history of George Town and the food was fascinating. Would highly recommend.
A great introduction to George Town.
Joanne_P, Mar 2020
We absolutely loved the tour. Our guide Danny was great and tailored the tour to suit our needs perfectly. All the food was wonderful and the historical information was a brilliant addition. I would recommend this activity as a good start to a George Town visit. It really helped us to get our bearings and discover some excellent food.
I learned a lot, I ate a lot, and I left HAPPY
Howard_L, Feb 2020
And educational and fun filled culinary evening. I could not think of a better way to have spent my time then walking the streets with my tour guide sampling the best that the city has to offer. We had the opportunity to sample some of the finest street food available. I was pleasantly surprised and pleased to find that our guide was so knowledgeable about the food, the culture and traditions of the people who make and enjoy the creations. I can’t believe I ate as much as I did. Not only did we sample various recipes but we learned a lot about the food, the complexity of ingredients, and how Malays use food as a form of celebration.

Only one other person had booked for this, making three in total - including our guide Jeremy. He took us to some great places that I wouldn't have ventured into on my own. We had a variety of small, really tasty dishes - with Jeremy explaining the historical background etc. for each dish. It was the perfect way to spend my first evening in Penang.

My husband and I were the only tourists on this tour. So we had Jeremy our tour guide all to ourselves. What a bonus! We had a great time and were able to sample a wonderful variety of food. I think this tour is for those who don't mind trying everything and who are genuinely interested in the cultural melting pot that is on offer. I particularly loved the ambra juice but saying that just about everything was delicious and a wide variety of dishes we would probably not have tried on our own. Jeremy was a great guide, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He shared lots of foodie experiences and made the night a highlight of what was a terrific holiday in Penang. Thanks Jeremy.
