I did two tours with Chaya - Meet the Locals & walking & food tour of Phuket town & cannot speak highly enough of Chaya & these tours. she is very informative & her love of Phuket shines through. The food tasting tour was a highlight .Chaya is generous with her time & happy to accommodate any requests.

If you have time, this morning/lunchtime walking & eating tour is an absolute must. Chaya, your host, is a delight and the insights she gives you into the culture, the history, architecture and the people are invaluable. You'll eat traditional Thai foods, experience old Phuket and visit places you likely wouldn't have found on your own. Definitely make time for... More

I chose Chaya of Phuket Heritage Trail Tours to do my excursions in Phuket after reading on Trip Advisor how fabulous she was. A chance I took, but I have to say I think I would have been dissappointed if I had used anyone else. Not only is she incredibly, friendly, knowlagable she will take you to places where there...

Chaya was able to squeeze us in for a wander around the old town on her food based tour. Sure, the Lonely Planet self guided tour would have taken us to the same area but we wouldn't have learnt anywhere near as much either about the area or about the Thais in general. This was a great opportunity to find... More

We were fortunate to spend the day with Chaya, doing her "Meet the Locals" tour, and what a fantastic day it was. Chaya is so obliging, picking us up exactly as planned. We were there during the Vegetarian Festival and Chaya gave us the interesting history and significance of this event. We went to the beautiful Chinese Temple (Tha Rua)... More

If you want to see beyond the shopping and party scene in Phuket area, this is a great way! The guide is passionated and extremly knowledgeable. She could answer all the questions from the group. Her english is fluent and it was extra fun that she seemed to enjoy the places we visited as well (I think she took more... More

This tour was the second we have done with Chaya of Phuket Heritage Tours. We were lucky enough to experience a tour back in 2012 and that experience has remained in our memories ever since. Therefore on this trip to Thailand we organised our itinerary with the specific intent of going to Phuket just to spend time with Chaya again.... More

My husband and I have now been on 4 of Chaya's tours and every-time it’s something new and fabulous. This time we were a party of four, who would think that it could just get better all the time and Chaya always seems to be able to come up with something exciting? This young lady is a wealth of information,... More

We did the Sunday tour with Chaya. It would be no exaggeration to say this was one of the best day tours ever, anywhere! Apart from eating fantastic food, we saw the Sea Gypsies' village, museums, temples, Buddhist nuns worshipping, monkeys, the wonderful Sunday market... but best of all, our guide Chaya was charismatic, friendly and knowledgeable. Listening to her,... More
