I booked this tour with my husband and 2 teenage sons. We all really enjoyed it Chaya is entertaining and informative. The lunch was delicious. My younger son loved the chicken. Excellent value for money and a great way to get off the beaten track with the insight of a local.

We booked this tour after reading the great reviews on Trip Advisor. Chaya, the owner/tour operator, was easy to deal with in regard to booking the tour and paying for it in advance. As promised she arrived on time to collect us and the day was very interesting to say the least. Taken off the beaten track to meet local... More

Meet the Locals was by far the best tour I have taken in all my travels. To start with Chaya is such a wonderful person, with a true love and passion for sharing her Phuket with you. The insight my daughter and I gather into the people and places in Phuket was amazing. Thanks to Chaya we absorbed the tastes,... More

Wanted something more than beaches and tourist traps. Did the "Meet the Locals" tour with Chaya and learnt a lot about the history of Phuket, its people and culture. Chaya was friendly, knowledgeable and shared a lot of her own history with us which gave us an insight into normal Thai life. Lunch was at a hilltop restaurant that is... More

Today we took the 4 hour Heritage Walking Tour with Chaya. Along the trail we learnt so much about the history of Phuket and its people. Chaya is so knowledgable and following her through the streets listening to the stories made you feel like one of the locals. As others have said, don't eat before you go as there are... More

Chaya was a lovely lady and a really informative guide. Every stop was unique, and the food we ate was... More

My partner and I did the meet the locals tour with Chaya and loved it. From when she picked us up from the hotel and throughout the day we saw another side to Phuket. She took us to local restaurants, cafés and roadside carts to try local cuisine and drinks - we got to eat things we would not normally... More

Joined the 2 pm Heritage Tour with my family. With 3 kids aged 11 (the age where most things are lame), 9 and 7, I wasn't sure if the tour would go down well since it did not involve rollercoasters or video games. So kudos to Chaya when my 11-year-old turned to me at dinner to say that the tour... More
