Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic tour! Food is culture and history. This tour delivers much more than just a full stomach- although we certainly had that. We were happy we chose the evening tour not only because it is cooler in the evening to walk around, but it was interesting to watch the streets change from the busy traffic of tourists and businesses to the locals coming out to visit, eat and go about their lives. We all felt it was the best tour we had taken out of many. Brandon did an amazing job.

Brandon was very friendly and informative. It was a really interesting tour and we tried some delicious food, we ended the tour in a great spot to go for a drink too finish the evening off. Would definitely recommend.

Brandon the guide was first class. He speaks fluent English and is very knowledgeable on local food, customs and history.
If you are only briefly stopping in Penang this is about as good an intro as you can get.
Specifically, street food (Penang is all about food) is often difficult as the traders rarely speak English so a guide, on your first outing, is a great start.
This tour is fairly pricey for the food you get, but worth it for the knowledge received.

It was a great introduction to the food of Georgetown. We did this tour on the day we arrived. Brandon was brilliant. It really set us up for the rest of the holiday.
We have since revisited a couple of the places.
The chicken samosas we had are probably the best I have ever tasted.

To be honest, wasn’t sue what to expect. Brandon turned up on the dot and the next 3 hours was a thoroughly entertaining and informative morning not only sampling many different ethnic dishes but also learning about Malay life, art, culture and its people. A tremendous way to pass a morning. Great guide and even better food.

A wonderful morning spent touring some interesting Penang foodie establishments we would never have found without our knowledgable guide Brandon. Many of which are hidden behind unpretentious shop fronts to which many would not look twice.
An amazing tour, Truly remarkable food!

Very professional , good kit, a well balanced ramble through stunning rural landscape, small farming and fishing hamlets.
Starting early avoided some of the heat at the middle of the day.
Should have extended to the mid afternoon tour!
