We had a great day with her. She picked us up at our hotel and started telling us right away about the history of George Town. We could ask her all kind of questions about the history but also our upcoming plans for this trip - which was super helpfull. After telling her that we are also intertested in some local food we stopped at some street food vendors & could give it a try. Would book a local guide next time again in case we are visiting a new place to make holidays. Thanks for a great day!

Fantastic tour! Hoo Peng was very knowledgeable, super friendly, and made the tour a lot of fun. We ate many different kinds of durian and came away with a greater understanding of not just durian but about Penang itself. We were fortunate to come across Hoo Peng and this tour because we would have missed out greatly trying to figure things out ourselves. We hope to find Hoo Peng again the next time we return to Penang for her other tours. Extremely highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Michael, Thank you both for booking my durian tour. The pleasure was all mine to guide u both on the path to become a durian connoisseur someday. Hope to see you guys back in Penang soon. Best regards.....

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mick for choosing a tour with me. Am glad you & Emma had a great experience on our local street cuisine. All the best to both of you & hope to see you back in Penang...one of these days �� Best regards.
We had a wonderful morning with Hoo on our Foodies tour in Penang. We visited at least 4 different cafes and Hoo picked out 2 to 3 dishes and drinks for us to taste and share. Her knowledge of Malaysian food is phenomenal. She asked how spicey we wanted and got it right every time. The trip through the wet market made a nice break during the tour and we saw where locals buy their fresh food. Hoo help us plan our afternoon walk too. Please note you do not need breakfast before this tour. You will enjoy

Hoo was a wonderful tour guide. She was very friendly, efficient, and most enthusiastic about our tour. On our half-day tour of Georgetown we went to see amazing places, particularly the Thai and Burmese Buddhist temples the Khoo Kongsi Clan houses and the Peranakan Museum. We enjoyed seeing the Clan jetties too. Hoo was so knowledgeable about the sites on the tour; she entertained us with stories about Georgetown and the variety of cultures in the city. Ask for Hoo if you seek a great tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much & am glad that you both enjoy my tour. Hope to see you both back in Penang again one of these days Best regards.

We had a fantastic tour around the streets of Penang with Hoo, who was brilliant. We went to a variety of different food places, most of which we would never have usually gone into. It was great to try so many different types of food and drinks, we were very full at the end! It was great to hear about the food from a local and have a tour of the local market. Thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Natalie. Glad that you & your family enjoyed my tour. Hope to see you all back in Penang one of these days. Best regards,
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: TQVM Mr Tyson. Hope to see you and your group back in Penang one of this days again. Its been my pleasure to guide you all. Best regards.
Fantasic fun with lots of new flavours tried. Poh is very knowledgeable and took us to many out-of-the-way places that we would never have found as tourists. I was born in Penang and have travelled extensively in South East Asia, but there is so much more to discover when you have a local to show you around. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mr Tyson. Glad that you & your team had a great time. Do come back again for another foodie adventure in the future �� Once again, thank you for choosing my tour packages for your holiday. Best regards. Poh
Great tour , enjoyed all of it! Make sure you bring a empty stomach.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your rating Mr Baston. Hope to see you back in Penang again someday. �� Best regards. Poh
