The Penang food tour with Jesi and Baptiste was incredible. They were delightful and shared their love of Penang’s food with us. It was great to get out of the old City and try food in other parts of the town I wouldn’t have known about otherwise. Highly recommend.

Kevin was a great host. We got to try lots of different local food we probably wouldn't have found on our own and it gave us a great introduction to Penang and its food scene! Make sure you go hungry!

We were keen to go on a food tour in George Town as we had heard, that it was the food mecca of Malaysia. For foodies, arriving on a Friday afternoon during Chinese NY in George Town is not the best time as most of the places are closed either for prayers or for the ongoing 15-day celebrations of Chinese NY. Needless to say, we were extremely excited to join Junie on a food tour so she could let us into the foodie secrets of her home town. Junie is a lovely and very enthusiastic guide and very knowledgeable. On our tour, there were another 4 participants. We soon realised that it was not only a challenge for us to find places open to eat during this time of the year but even for a well-experienced guide like Junie. She managed to put a great tour together with a lot of variety. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and I have to admit that I am hard to please as I run food tours myself so I do expect high standards. Join Junie on one of her tours, you will not be disappointed. Penang has a great food scene and she will certainly create something magnificent.

HP was fantastic, taking us around to various morning markets and food stalls to try the fantastic bounty of food and culture that exists in Penang. Especially loved being introduced to the Nnonya cuisine and various other special fruits and treats that are only available during the Chinese Lunar New Year! Highly recommend.
