First we walk through the spice garden park to smell the various fragrances. Next we go to a little shop where we sample a couple of appetizers. Finally we go to the Pernankan museum to learn about the people and culture of the country.

As a reviewer had mentioned, this is not a tour to just sit down and eat like a fat lazy (insert country here). Thus I do agree that the tour title should be changed. However, I had no issues understanding what the tour would entail because I read the entire description and information like any conscientious traveler should.

I would recommend the tour to someone who enjoys both cooking and learning about different cultures. If you can identify a spice by the smell - then you would appreciate the spice garden. If you care about the history of the city and how the residents came to be - you need to have liked history in school - then the museum is a good place.

I had the fortune like others to have Mr. Foo as my guide. (I also had him for the Round Island tour, lucky me!) Plus there were only 3 of us in the group, so the tour was very intimate. It's hard to hear a guide when there is a large group of people, so having such a small group helped immensely for me to be able to listen to him and ask a lot of questions.
