Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Little India - Penang, Queen Street and Penang Street Malaysia

We begin our journey at one of the oldest enclaves in George Town. Like the migrants who made this place home, we will wander the city - exploring its food, its quirks and finding our place in this vibrant and diverse melting pot.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Chulia Street, Lebuh Chulia, George Town, Penang Island Malaysia

Change is inevitable, and we will discover how the winds of change have rearranged the city from its founding, to its glory days in the 19th century. Our selection of food changes with it, telling us a story many people barely perceive.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Armenian Street, Lebuh Armenian, George Town, Penang Island Malaysia

In the final hour, we discover the pieces and players that have built modern George Town. We reflect on our journey, and how it mirrors the journey of this city and its people. And perhaps we come away a little wiser (and full of food).

My husband and I did this tour with our 4 year old son and were the only people on the tour. Our guide Jeremy was flexible with catering to our needs and was happy to answer all our questions including questions not really related to food. We enjoyed going to places we wouldn't find on our own and trying the different local dishes, and hearing about the background to the dishes. Another highlight was the summary email Jeremy sent - outlining the places we went and the food we had, as well as recommendations of other places to go and what to have there and even how to order particular things.

I'd highly recommend doing one of the Heritage on a Plate tours - particularly early on in your stay at Penang - however I would recommend trying for the dinner hop if possible because it is really hot in the middle of the day!
