A world heritage site, a port and confluence of some of the oldest families in the country, Penang is a natural choice for visitors to have a sneak peek into being Malaysian. So hop on this tour with an original Penang born and bred food guide. This is a small group tour with a local guide in a private vehicle. Explore the treats of yesteryear with the humble “Penang Lobak”, the “Appoms” and “Kuihs” found only in the Penang backstage and the Penang night hawkers.

This would have gotten FIVE stars if GYG didn’t have a glitch the booking. Arrived way ahead of schedule and when I called operator, my booking wasn’t in the the system and required a screen shot of my booking. They didn’t have it but fortunately were able to send one anyway. So after a 45 minute delay, tour started. Kevin is an excellent tour guide, friendly and cheerful without being too in your face. Went to several stalls where he was able to skip lines and food was plentiful and excellent. So as long as GYG doesn’t flub the booking I would recommend Penang Food Tours to anyone.
