Veron was a good and patient guide looking for the 16 of us. She also explained the history of the penerakan food very well. The tour is suitable for ultimate foodies eating non stop from 9am to 12pm. Vero also explained the history of all the food thag we ate, which gave us more insights into the daily street food we eat.

Our guide Kenneth and the co-guide, can’t remember her name, were both very professional and efficient. Added to that is their experience and knowledge, and personal anecdotes, about the history of Geylang Serai and Joo Chiat. Enjoyed the tour!
