Local Market and Food Walking Tour in Penang
USD 42.00
We share culture and history through creating one of a kind dining experiences for anyone. Eat your way through the city as our guides share stories behind the food. You will taste, see and smell the art, culture and history of the city you are in. Our tours include popular spots as well as off beaten areas to showcase each city’s diversity and beauty. We find that one of the best conversations are formed over a small table filled with great food and drinks.
What to Expect
Let us take you on a tasty treat tour of palatable Penang but more than that, allow us to share with you the rich multicultural history of its people and the city through her food. We promise you a lasting memory you can take home. Skip your hotel breakfast and come join us.
