I highly recommend this tour for anyone interested in experience the Malay food scene! Our guide Joel was amazing — he shared a lot of his knowledge on the country history and culture while introducing us to some delicious dishes on the way. I always take food tours when I travelled, and I can tell this one was the perfect combination of food (quality, variety and amount), history and laughs!

Myself and povan were in contact a few days before the tour. He was courteous and professional during the entire process. I messaged him the day of that I might be late(which I wasn’t) but he was understanding of the unavailability of getting a ride during the rain. I meet povan in the central market place and we took off going from Vendor to vendor tasting delicious local food. He was very respectful that I eat certain things due to my religion. My favorite was the fish soup in Chinatown than the rose apple and another fruit and lastly was the coffee/tea combo. As if it wasn’t enough to enjoy a good conversation while eating food I got a treat but it was for my eyes. We walked back and again couldn’t get a ride to my hotel so he graciously gave me a ride. Povan you’re a gentleman among men. Hats off to You for all the great food vendors but best of all being a good person

Amazing tour!

This tour was definitely the highlight of our trip! Our guide, Saadi, was awesome and customised the tour based on our interests along the way. He contacted us before the tour so we had his contact details and to confirm meeting place, which made it so easy for us. He genuinely wanted to make the tour the best experience as possible for us, which he definitely did - rain and all! Would highly recommend the tour, it was a great way to see the city and some 'off the beaten path' places that we would otherwise not have gone. Make sure you turn up hungry because there is a LOT of food along the way!
