A definite must do if In Phuket which is a mix of visits to little eating houses, cafes and markets. We also visited and learned about some of the historical buildings in the Old Phuket Town. The best food tour to know everything about Thai market, food art and culture, as well as the influences from different ethnies (Myanmar, Chinese and Muslim among others). Pema is the most delightful, caring, phenomenally interesting and fun guide who has a vast knowledge of the locality and the history of the origin of the food. She took us to local restaurants which we would not have found by ourselves and we had the most tasteful food imaginable. It was a feast at every stop and the food is all delicious! Pema, thank you so much for making this a pleasurable tour. Very highly recommended with a lovely guide.

This was a spectacular activity. The snorkeling was fun with lots of colorful fish; the Thai lunch was delicious, and the beach was gorgeous. At first we weren’t sure whether we needed an English speaking guide, but we were glad we had one in the end. Great value for money

Amazing experience, you can discover a huge amount of Local food. Come with an empty stomach and let the best guide show you around and share her pation.

We had an amazing experience! The company had great communication with us and our fellow travelers, and they were very kind, fun, and attentive.

Everything was super nice, although "The beach" is closed you could admire it from the water.
