This food tour was so much more than just food! Our guide was really knowledgeable about Thai history too! She really looked after us and we had a fabulous time! I wish I could remember her name! And then the food...... OMG! So much food!
This was a fun tour. We saw lots of old town Phuket and got to experience much of the food and people with a little of the history sprinkled in. Our guide was super sweet and knowledgable about the old town culture and food, of which there was a ton! Only issue with this tour was that it is a little tough to find, otherwise we had a very nice time.
Do yourself a favor and take this adventure in gastronomy! This food tour had me rolling home. We must have eaten one week's worth of delicious cuisine found in Old Town Phuket. Viator says this tour is about 4 hours with more than 14 dishes. We were on tour for more than 6 hours and we must have eaten everthing. Our guide Pema was a ball of energy and information. I'm sure the time length depends on vendor availability, but Pema always seemed to have a backup available as we went on Chinese New Years and vendors were sporadic. She knew everything about the area we were in. And once the tour was over, she was still helping us discover other food places! This is not just a food tour, but a cultural lesson as well. And because the tour is so small, you get to meet some amazing people!
I truly recommend this tour. It is worth every penny.
Wow, what a great tour to experience all kinds of food at the phuket central market!!
Our tour guide was fantastic, friendly and so knowledgeable of the foods we ate. Our group was small with only 7 persons that made us feel like family after the end of the day. All our fellow tour partners were so full of great food, none had much more stomach room for just that last bite.
We thought this would be a great way to start our first day in Phuket, and we could not have been more right! Our guide Pema was bubbly and so full of energy! The food was AMAZING, and the variety was awesome. Walking through the markets to see how they process coconuts and the huge bowls of curry pastes were wonderful. We had another couple on our tour, and Pema took good care of all (the other couple was vegan). We had lamb, a huge variety of seafood, pork, chicken and beef. Huge array of fruits and vegetables and sweets. We ate in restaurants and from food carts. And she had tons of knowledge about the area as she grew up on the island and went to school near the market. Don't miss it!
