It has taken me far too long to write this review, but in a way, it means more that my partner and I still remember this food tour as a stand out highlight of our time in Malaysia and Penang. (NOTE we went in Nov 2019 but I can't pick that option!) From the moment we met Danny, his passion and knowledge about Penang stood out. Such varied cultures allow Danny to craft a wonderful tour, taking in the sights, smells and tastes of the 2nd biggest city in Malaysia, whilst reminding you of its humble origins. It gave us new eyes on the town and we went back to many of the stops in the following days. Thank you Danny for loving the city in a way that you were so willing to share with us. We hope you are keeping safe in the difficult times 2020 has brought and we will be back soon! Siobhan and Stefano x

Do yourself a big foodie favour and make time to do this walking tour around the streets of Penang with Danny. We went at night but day tours are also available. Our personal recommendation would be to do it early in your stay so then you get the chance to go back and revisit places and it also gives you the chance to search out other places that might appeal to you. Really worthwhile and cost friendly. Jennie & Chris

Great night with Danny exploring food, culture and history of Georgetown. The interesting route took us by temples, shrines and sites of historical events while working off each delicious course. Highly recommend this tour.

We met Danny in the early evening and there was a total of 6 people on the tour. We went to try 5 different shops, and Danny also told us a lit if the local history that isnt in the guide books or internet. Definitely would recommend and will do it again

Just go on and book this tour!! It really is Heritage on a plate, you get to know George town and you get to taste George town :). Danny was an excellent guide, very attentive! If I wasn't leaving Penang I would have gone for a second round ;). Eating your way through a city is the best way to get to know it in my opinion, just make sure you are hungry :)
