Discover the humble beginnings of George Town, as we meet and begin the hop from the "Little India" district. A delicious snack and hot cup of coffee serve as the stage for the introduction to the city's rise as a teeming entrepot of diverse cultures.

Each step through the city streets also serves as a step through time, and an exploration of each community's history and place in the present. We'll explore "harmony street" and its various places of worship, tracing a line back to how people from very different parts of the world made Penang their home. We will then turn into the present, and look at how traditional vendors and merchants co-exist with modern businesses. We will also enjoy some delicious lunch dishes, diving into the history of the communities that make them while sipping refreshing iced drinks. We like to end the session with a cool shaved-ice dessert, one of George Town's favourites. 

By the end of the hop, we want you to feel like you aren't just visiting a city, but getting to know and old and storied friend called George Town. One that makes delicious, delicious food.

  • Explore the local streets on a walking tour of the city
  • Family friendly
  • Small group ensures personal service
  • Vegetarian meal option available

    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!
