What you'll do

This is a very personal style tour, it is started with the idea 'Your local friend always bring you the best', imagine to have a friend when you arrived to a new city, that's same as what I wanted when I travel. This tour is about communicating and making friends, as well as culture sharing and discovering.
Unlike many traditional guided group that you can easily found in else where, I would not introduce you some places you would easily found on internet, and probably you won't learn too much knowledge of the formal history.
This is cool for you, if you are ready to meet new friend, get some ideas of where to visit in Penang/Malaysia. I'm ready to share my experience and my life in Penang/Malaysia and I would like to hear your story too.
We will meet in a brunch shop where we enjoy our food and get to know each other as well as share our stories of traveling and of course everything about Penang/Malaysia. Then, we'll witness and felt the soul and spirit of Penang in Little India and Clan Jetty where exemplary heritage way of living is showcased.

Vic was very knowledgeable and a great guide. I appreciated his ability to tailor the tour for me and his flexibility (I booked this the night before). My biggest recommendations would be to rest during the day and come hungry! I regret starting the tour on a pretty full stomach and being somewhat fatigued from my day... do not make this mistake. He will make a fair amount of stops (so lots of walking) and you will want to try everything he suggests! If you are prepared to eat and get some exercise this tour is for you! Vic was awesome.

Highly recommend this experience to try lots of local foods that you would not be able to try on your own. Vic was a wonderful host, who engaged with his guests and made the trip highly enjoyable. I loved all of the foods that I tried and it gave me a great insight into the varied cuisines available in Penang.

I was really satisfied with this tour. Vic showed us around Jorge Town with a lot of local food in Malaysia. In addition, told us various things regarding what we experienced. I really recommend this tour.

One of the reasons why I went to Penang in the first place is its food. And my local guide, Vic, made sure that I fell in love with it for me to have a reason to go back. Vic was superb! Tbh, it didn't feel like a tourist food tour, it was more like I was catching up with a friend over good food. It was such an awesome night — ahhh, I'm still daydreaming about the broth of the fish soup we had. The supposed to be 4-hour walking food tour became 5 hours. Good thing, Vic didn't charge me with overtime fees hahaha just kidding. His kindness didn't stop there - he continued to give me food recommendations before and even after the tour. This guy surely knows the ins and outs of Penang. Another thing I admired about Vic is his willingness to further improve his services. He asked me about things he can improve on and I was more than happy to help. Now, I'm already planning my return and will surely join another tour hosted by this young man.

Vic is a great and friendly host. Knows his city and history. Vic made us discover local dishes and location. He could certainly be a liable tour guide as well. Food should be included in total price.

A great and friendly tour of the old town, with fun anecdotes and delicious food and drinks to sample along the way. Vic, the host was very nice and tailored the tour to give us a good variety of dishes to try and interesting sights/streets to visit. We very much enjoyed his company. Note that we got confused at the end as we thought the food cost was included in the food tour, which is standard on other similar tours we booked through Airbnb. So we had to pay extra but let it not stop you from booking, as it really is a nice evening and you’ll try some very nice dishes too. So overall a great experience in Penang which we’d definitely recommend, making sure you read the full listing to avoid embarrassment at the end.
