Full description

Feast on 15+ tastings on our award-winning food tour around the markets and street eats of Chiang Mai. Led by professional foodie guides on our songtheaw truck. Over 3,000 guests can't be wrong.

Most don't know that Thai cuisine is highly regional. The hilly North is less green curry and pad Thai and more jungle herbs and barbecued meats. Board our private songtheaw truck and get whisked away to some of the best street eats and markets in the city.

We don't want to spoil the surprise, but prepare to drool over ladles of creamy khao soi curry with crispy noodles, chilli jam and pickled greens, spatchcocked chickens sizzling over hot charcoal and served with zingy som tum papaya salads and sticky rice, and lemongrass-stuffed sai oua sausages among more than a dozen tastings you'd struggle to find alone.

The tour concludes in the trendy Nimmanhaemin district not far from the central hotels in the city. Enjoy local hospitality and meet new friends along the way. End the tour armed with the knowledge you'll need to continue eating street food across Thailand.

Our tour reflects the local cuisine and the limitations of street food vendors means we unfortunately cannot cater for every dietary restriction. Here's an honest appraisal for the tour so no-one is disappointed: ✘ Unsuitable for vegetarians, pescatarians and no-pork diets ✘ Unsuitable for shellfish, peanut and severe allergies. ✘ Unsuitable for severe gluten intolerances, there are traces of gluten in soy sauce. ✔ Suitable for lactose intolerances. ✔ Suitable for no beef diets.

We were fortunate to be the only ones on the tour (myself and my partner). The guide was very informative and shared a lot of knowledge of the history and difference in style of food across Thailand. All of the food was delicious. It was a good variety of food from different regions. It was nice to go to different parts of Chiang Mai, especially places we may not have thought to go

We had a wonderful tour with Moui. She was very knowledgeable and showed us numerous interesting restaurants and dishes. We definitely would not have been able to find a lot of the restaurants without her. And even if we could, we would not have been able to order. These restaurants were small, local places and it was great to eat what the locals eat.

This was a truly fantastic and knowledgeable food tour where you’d find spots that would be hard to find a tourist new to a city or like me and my boyfriend not here very long. Interesting facts about the area, it’s influences and it’s good. Our guide too was fabulous
