The best tour ever!
, Jan 2022
I cannot begin to say how brilliant this tour was. The guide was hugely knowledgeable and great fun. A hugely generous host. We toured the market, sampled an enormous amount of food, saw temples, local life, etc. It was absolutely brilliant and one of the most memorable tours we have ever enjoyed. You MUST do this tour!
Amazing Amazing Amazing!!

Amazing amazing amazing! Pema was our guide and walked the streets of Phuket Old Town and her years of growing up in ever changing Phuket. We ate countless dishes, in many different locations. We went past temples and tastee everything from soups to desserts, fast food to heavy meals. It was absolutely magical and we loved every moment. Extremely value for money and an exceptional day out. Thank you! /

Hi Owain, Thank you for taking the time to leave Pema a review. She will be thrilled to know that you had such a great time on the experience. We look forward to hopefully seeing you on our Bangkok and Chiang Mai food tours soon! All the best, Luke @ A Chef's Tour
Don’t skip this!

It was wonderful to not only visit little hidden foodie gems that represent the diversity of food influences that can be found in Phuket, but it was also a great joy to hear about the guide’s experiences growing up in this historic center.

Great food, great tour, great guide.
, Jul 2021
A fun and informative tour that allowed us to experience the many different and amazing cuisines that make up and influence the food of Phuket. Pema was a fun, friendly and knowledgable guide for our tour and she happily talked us through the food of Myanmar, India, China and Thailand in addition to giving us many interesting facts about the history and architecture of Phuket Old Town.

Not just a food tour
, Feb 2020
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!
A fun tour
, Jan 2020
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.
Great Food Tour In Phuket
, Nov 2019
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.
Excellent start to our Phuket vacation!
, Nov 2018
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!
