Amazing food tour, in which we had the true locals experience. Charlie our guide was brilliant and not only did he take us to a collection of fantastic hole in the wall restaurants, but he also had an amazing relationship with the owner of these small business, which really showed the pride both parties had for amazing local Malaysian cuisine.
Additionally, we had way more than enough amazing food and the walking wasn't too far.
Recommend to all!!

A great overview and taste of the different foods of Malaysia. An easy walk I'm 70ish with a little of history from our terrific guide, Charlie. There was a short light rail trip which also helped with the method of transport if you are going to use it on another day. You don't need breakfast before the tour as you get plenty of really tasty things to eat!
