Amazing experience! Must do activity when visiting Penang.

This tour was amazingly executed. We walked through the streets of Penang and learnt so much about the history, the Malay, Indian and Chinese cultures as well as their beautiful food. Teoh our guide was so friendly and taught us so much. Teoh is a wealth of knowledge, so ask him many questions and have fun. 100% would recommend as a must do when visiting Penang.
Essential tour for Penang Visit

Amazing tour highlighting the food and the culture of Penang, as well as its colorful history.

The food included Indian, Malay and Chinese and was more than plentiful. The religions of each group were also included as we visited a Hindu temple, Chinese temple and a historic mosque. We choose the evening tour and ended with a delicious cocktail at an excellent upscale, fun bar.

Best of all was our tour guide, Suryia. Knowledgeable and fun she knew how to keep us going. Must-do in Penang.
Engaging & fun tour with tasty choices of eateries

We live in Malaysia and have been to Georgetown and Penang countless times over the years. We have done many of the internet "best xxx hawkers/restaurants" list on the internet, yet the places that our guide Ron brought us to never made it into our radar and were excellent in terms of taste (unique / different flavors) and in quality. These adresses will enter our regulars. It was our first guided tour of the city and Ron is an engaging guide with loads of anedoctes and stories. Eventhough we were familiar with Malaysia culture, we learned a lot about Georgetown and malaysians. It was really worth it. I highly recommend this tour.
Good night out

Had a fabulous group of people on the tour and certainly had plenty to eat and drink. Would have liked more information on the actual dishes we ate (how they were made, the ingredients etc) but could not fault the food. Teoh provided very interesting information on George Town and it’s history and culture.
Good experience

Very nice tour. We learned a lot about the city while eating yummy food! The tour guide was very nice and always concerned about our safety. Just one thing I'd like to suggest is to lower the amount of food given in every place because there was some waste, we couldn't eat it all.
