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 booked this to help us get our heads around the food Mecca that is Penang. Junie and Kevin met us easily and really showed us two plus hours of Penang history, it’s good culture and most importantly where to go to get the best of the best from the street food vendors.
