Foodies, this is your place! Malaysia's food capital is the place to dig into tasty treats like laksa and char kuey teow — and decide for yourself if you think this city really does have the best street food in the world (that's what the word on the... street is, anyway). Then, once you've had your fill, head out to explore the city's fascinating fusion of East meets West, where tradition meets old-world charm.

We had a wonderful day. Our guide Juney was lovely and she took excellent care of us. We saw some amazing sites in town but more importantly, we really experienced (and enjoyed) some local food. We were a group of 8 and Urban Adventures worked to ensure everyone's individual bookings were linked properly for a single tour together. We were late arriving into port due to some issues with Norwegian Cruise lines and Urban Adventures contacted our guide and reassured us that she would be waiting and ready to go when we got there. After eating our full, Juney sent us on our way in the direction of Penang's most popular sites to see. All in all it was one of our best days of the cruise.

My tour turned out to be a private one as I was the only one who booked a morning tour. Lucky me! HP was my guide. She was patient, accommodating and very knowledgeable about all things Penang and all things food! We explored Georgetown on foot and had a chance to try the some of the best food Penang has to offer. All the food that we ate made my foodie heart all happy. I highly recommend this tour (and HP) to solo travellers or to anyone travelling Penang for the first time.

Poh was an absolutely wonderful guide. She is very knowledgable about the tastes, history and culture of Penang and provided excellent explanations of what we were eating and why she had chosen to take us to a particular dish or vendor. There was a wide range of food and drinks to try, and touring on foot gave us an opportunity to learn how to navigate the city. This was definitely the best introduction to Penang!

Poh was an enthousiastic and very informatieve guide. She took me to places and introduced me to dishes I would not have found by myself
