If you’ve joined a morning tour, walk to the Penang wet market to see stands piled high with fresh fruits and vegetables, and learn the basic ingredients of Penang cuisine. Morning tour tastings include a variety of local breakfast dishes alongside seasonal fruits and drinks, as you make your way from popular destinations to hidden local eateries. Come hungry for this tour, as your 10 food and drink samples make up a hearty lunch.

Evening tours kick off at 5pm, and guests enjoy a full dinner spread across four tasting locations, including local dishes, seasonal fruits, and drinks.

This tour is a must for anyone visiting Penang! It was definitely one of the highlights during my week visit to the island. Joy is a fabulous tour guide. She's extremely knowledgable of the history of the local cuisine and culture and makes sure you and your belly finish the tour fully satisfied.

Joy , who is a Singaporean who moved to Malaysia 6 yrs ago, was very knowledgeable and was able to pick us up and drop us off from the ship. We had an off the beaten track foodie tour of breakfast / brunch foods including Char koay teoh, oyster omelette, chendol, Assam laksa, ban Chiang Kuei, Hokkien noodles, curry noodles. We travelled in her car, suitable for max 3 people, with good aircon. We saw some of the local sights and heard about the differences in history and culture of the Malaysians. A very enjoyable morning 9-1pm.

My wife and I went on the evening food tour on 27 December and it was absolutely fantastic. Lily was a great host and had amazing local knowledge which really brought the food to life. It was great to learn about the multicultural background to all of the different dishes and to try them from the best local stalls that we never would have found on our own. We even got to try an extra couple of local specialities not usually included on the tour which was amazing. We highly recommend this tour, thanks again to Lily for making it very special.

Joy was a fantastic guide. Thoughtful, interesting and really knew her subject matter. Good contact prior to tour to make sure it met our needs. Saw and tasted a lot of things we would have missed out on if we tried to find food ourselves. The car and the driver were also excellent. I would highly recommend it.

One of the highlights of the trip. Good guide, authentic food and informative narration about culture -- What's not to like?

, Aug 2017
This tour was the absolute highlight of my visit to Penang. Lily was so personable, knowledgable, and generous of mind and spirit. There was a bit of a mixup and she was very accommodating. As someone travelling alone, this was a great way to meet people, to get a different perspective, and to get a little glimpse of an insider's view. I cannot recommend it highly enough. If i go back I might very well do it again!
It was a wonderful experience. It is...

It was a wonderful experience. It is not about just eating the best food, it is also about the learning the history of why the food became what it is and how it is linked to the history Penang's history and culture. It is a must try if you love food, culture and history! You will not regret it.
What a great tour around the sights...
, Jan 2017
What a great tour around the sights of Georgetown tasting the local street food. Our guide was extremely friendly, organised and well versed on the history of Georgetown and the food delights. Suits tourists of all ages, there is some walking involved but you are transferred through to each destination in an air conditioned car. The tour was customised to what we enjoyed eating and the guide was very flexible and accommodating to our tastes. Lovely little touch at the end with a gift which was a pleasant surprise. Definitely worth doing especially as an introduction to the town itself.
