Best Food Tour We've Ever Been On
Jan 2020
My husband and I are total foodies. We've been on a few dozen food tours across three continents. And this was hands down the best one we've ever experienced. Danny was an absolutely incredible guide, telling us the fascinating history of George Town while taking us through the city. And the food . . . I'm still dreaming about so much of the food. It honestly breaks my heart that I live on the other side of the world, because I've been craving several of the foods we tried since our tour.

Must do in Penang!
I had my tour with Danny and he was extremely knowledgeable about George Town - the history, culture and the food! It was really insightful learning about Penang's past and the vast cultural tapestry. Trying food from the different cultures that make up Penang was amazing and I tried foods I wouldn't have chosen otherwise because I wasn't sure what they were. He also gave me great tips on other foods to try and areas to visit. Highly recommended!

Awesome way to experience the city
The lunch hop with Danny was such an amazing way to see the city of Georgetown, experience all of the wonderful local food and learn about the rich heritage of Penang. Danny was very knowledgeable, and felt more like a friend than a tour guide. Would absolutely recommend this experience to anyone visiting Penang!

Well worth it!
My husband and I had a great lunch tour with Danny. He is such an excellent guide and really knowledgeable about Penang. We love getting to know cities that we travel to through their food, and this tour definitely did that for us. We visiting quite a few places that we would’ve never found on our own or known what to order. We would highly recommend doing this tour when visiting Penang!

Food, culture, history served on an exceptional tour
Jan 2020
This is our third trip to Penang and we thought we knew a bit about the world renowned street food in Penang, but decided to take the 3-Hour Heritage on a Plate Tour anyway.

Our guide, Jeremy, soon made us realise how little we actually knew. Not only does Jeremy live and breathe food, his knowledge of the origins, the history of the area and his long term experience in Penang was encyclopaedic.

I have a few dietary restrictions and Jeremy had gone out of his way to ensure that this was all covered in the tour which made for a seamless and thoroughly enjoyable day.

There were so many places, flavours and locations that we could not possibly have remembered all of them. This is were the cream on the cake came in. The next day, Jeremy sent us a comprehensive list of all of the place we visited, the food we sampled and recommendations of many others to try in the future.

Highly recommended, thank Jeremy from Bevan and Fiona.

An essential first stop in Penang
Jan 2020 • Couples
I try to go on food tours in every new place I visit, but of all the tours I’ve been on, this one is truly special. Not only did we get to stop and eat a wide variety of delicious food, we also gained a deeper understanding and appreciation of Penang. The history of this area is so storied. Learning through food and art was such a wonderful way to get to know the city. If there was only one thing I could do in Penang, this tour would be it.

Delicious, Informative, and Fun
Jan 2020
We had a great time on our tour with our guide Jeremy! He shared so much about the local cuisine and culture. he was able to answer all of our questions and catered the tour to our wants and needs. We brought our 3 year old along and Jeremy was patient with him too, even though the tour isn't really ideal for small kids. We tried lots of things we wouldn't of ordered on our own and were happy with everything. Highly recommend! I wish we would have had more time to check out the recommendations from Jeremy after our tour or to even do a dinner tour.

An fantastic culinary tour through the history of Penang
Jan 2020 • Solo
Danny did an amazing job mixing delicious Penang staples and sharing the interesting history of this historic city. All the food was excellent and fun to try things you would have never otherwise tried. I was nice that each stop also came with a delicious different fruit juice. Great way to spend the day. Thanks for the great adventure!

"HOP" on a Food Journey through Penang
Dec 2019 • Couples
We had the most remarkable time exploring parts of Penang with Danny. His storytelling, sense of humour and ability to link each stop to a piece in history, opened our eyes to a Penang that not a lot of people know about. We were pleasantly surprised by the authenticity, simplicity and absolute deliciousness of the various dishes chosen by Danny (not an easy feat when a lot of different options are out there!). We will definitely recommend!

A rating of five is just not enough

Booking the Heritage on a Plate tour with Danny was easy - Danny kept us well informed at booking of the tour and in the lead up to our holiday.

This was a major highlight of our holiday. There were three of us on the small group tour led by Danny and he made sure that we all felt welcome and encouraged us to use the opportunity to ask questions whenever we wanted.

Danny was an awesome host taking us to 5 separate locations and we tried so many different types of foods - some we had never heard of and some we may not have tried on our own. Danny displays a real love for his culture and hidden history and the wonderful food that goes with it. To learn of Malay, Indian and Asian culture while sampling the food that goes with that culture is a memory that will live with us for many years to come.

I think our favourite was the Char Koay Teow and Curry Mee. In the past we would have simply walked past the small family run places - but never again as our eyes have been opened to the many possibilities of great and cheap food out there.

We cannot thank Danny enough for the day and we hope to meet you again next time we are in Penang.

PS - you were right - Darwin has plenty of Laksa places !!!!!
