If this crazy shallow Phuket-resort life has left you aching for substance, look no further: Chaya's tour will fulfill your stomach (forget about Pad Thai, this Thai/Malay food you haven't tried) and your soul with local culture and history. At the end, don't be surprised if you find yourself enlightened with some of the peaceful Thai mentality… this is exactly... More

Thanks to Chaya for the amazing day. We chose the heritage walking trail and we weren't disappointed! Do not eat before you go, we started with coffee at a beautiful little coffee shop called "since 1892" then we walked to a small restaurant for an amazing breakfast,the food didn't stop coming! We rolled out of there and walked around old... More

The tour is an awesome way to spend half a day out of your resort and seeing local island life. Not just a tour of the island, it's an informative day learning about Thai culture and food. Tour started off with a visit to a monastery where I got a crash course in Buddhism, then visiting the "sea gypsies" of... More

Chaya went out of her way to make sure we were taken care of, it was a highlight to a fantastic trip to Thailand! We saw a lot of great things in Phuket Town, and in the surrounding areas, but the best part of the trip is when we walked with her through the street vendors looking at all the... More

I took the Meet the locals tour. I was surprised to be picked up from my hotel by Chaya herself and that it was just me & two others. Chaya like no other guide i've ever experienced got me totally enthusiastic about thai people and culture. It was really special to be able to meet and talk with a few... More

This tour turned out to be so much more than we expected it to be. As other reviewers have said it was not only a highlight of our trip to Thailand but definitely the best thing we did in Phuket. We stopped at a couple of places for food and it was really great to have a local who can... More

This was a surprise highlight for us on our trip. Away from the tourists to understand the culture. And the kids ate it up. The high point was a reverent and educational visit to a working neighborhood Buddhist temple. Chaya was very knowledgeable and very helpful in guiding us through the process of offering and prayers. Then to a hidden... More

We had signed up for the Phuket Old Town tour which is conducted only twice a week by Chaya. And it is a tour that we thoroughly enjoyed. It was fascinating right from the beginning till the very end. Tour started at 830 which was followed by an amazing local breakfast - a type of thai laksa with the best... More

We have done private tours in the past but none to compare with Chaya. You are picked up with a smile ,which lasts the whole day, and you get to know a lovely young lady who really knows what service is all about. with in the first ten minutes we had coffee,roast bananas and other things I am not to...
