Would totally recommend this tour hosted by a knowledgeable and funny lady. A great informative and fun day with lots of very good authentic Thai food. Be flexible though, you run on 'Thai time'. Have been to Thailand many times but this tour was much more 'local' and informative on true Thai culture.

We really enjoyed our afternoon spent with Chaya - don't make the mistake of eating before you go as the food on this tour is amazing from the street food to the lunch at a local restaurant. Chaya's tour is extremely informative and her english is excellent. Even my 8 year old son was not bored.

We could not have expected the fantastic experience we have had with Chaya. From the moment we were picked up the knowledge of Chaya on the history of Phuket and on what we really wanted to see was fantastic. We could not recommend Chaya high enough. We got to see the real Phuket from wild monkeys to the first mansion... More

Our young family booked the Phuket Heritage Trails Walking Tour with Chaya. The day she advertised it as being on was full so she kindly offered us alternatives, knowing we were to be leaving Thailand soon. What a great way to spend the day!! We started in the food markets where Chaya bought some traditional Thai sweets, we then moved... More

Loved everything about this tour. Chaya, our guide is a beautiful local lady with a great sense of humour. She provided very interesting information on the history of Phuket Town and patiently answered our endless questions. Fortunately, we were an all female tour so Chaya arranged for us to attend also the Buddhist Nunnery. This was a beautiful experience meeting... More

Chaya was a great host. We did the sunday afternoon/night tour. It was a very full day - everthing promised on the website overview was delivered and a bit more! We were picked up at the hotel and driven around in a car to the many stops on the tour. My 12 year old son was fully engaged on what... More

Do yourself a favor by escaping the tourist trap of Patong Beach and spend a day with Chaya exploring Phuket town and enriching yourself culturally in the process. We arrived by cruise ship and Chaya met us at the pier. She immediately drove us far away from Patong Beach to explore the other side of Phuket Island, the area she... More

Today we took our family on Chaya's walking tour. Chaya is friendly and very easy to understand. Her English is excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed learning about the architecture, monastery and sampling food we may never have tried. The children were engaged and got to make cookies with a local bakery, sit with the novice monks and had fun trying to... More
