Of all the activities we did in Phuket, this was the one I looked forward to the most and I was not disappointed. Chaya was prompt and detailed in replying to our email inquiries and we were able to book the tour only a couple of days in advance. We were greeted by Chaya with a big smile and Chinese... More

This tour was as great as all the reviews said. My husband and I went with friends and their two children (6 & 8 years old). Based on the reviews I pushed for this tour to be one of the first things we did when we arrived in Phuket, and it was the best decision. Chaya was a fabulous tour... More

Chaya is an amazing guide, but different than any other tour that goes "on your right you can observe", she takes the time to bring you to great local food spots, order local dishes, tell you their story, then walk to a different spot while talking about the story of a building, road or Thailand. She knows a lot of... More

Phuket is never the same after ”Meet the Locals” with Chaya around the real Phuket. A dive into a colourful history and traditions, the sino-colonial architecture and local flavours. We also visited buddhist nons, sea gypsies and had a great lunch in a hidden café. The Sunday tour ends up at the very local Thalang Road Night Market. A great... More

Absolutely fantastic and much more than "a tour". This started with a nice egg on roti prata breakfast.....A nice chat with our guide Chaya over the delicious breakfast we got to know the history and culture of Thailand and Phuket. Then we stroll through the old streets, seeing historic buildings built at different era, walking into the shop houses and... More

Love Chaya! She leads us to places most tourists dont see. And more importantly, I learned heaps about history and Thailand in such a fun way. Chaya adjusted our trip to the group....and we left so happy. - full tummy and some great goods purchased too. Xx

Whilst in Phuket we went on 2 tours with Phuket Heritage Tours lead by Chaya (meet the locals, and a new one Chaya has not yet advertised). There was a group of 6 of us (4 adults, 2 children) and we all thoroughly enjoyed both days out. I think we were all blown away by the history and culture that... More

My husband and I were privleged to spend the day with Chaya. Our holiday is so much richer from experiencing the uniqueness of Phuket's varied culture through of a true local. This is not to be missed!!!

After been living in Phuket for nearly 2 decades where I work with tours myself I decided to try out this trail, with Khun Chaya. Khun Chaya is an amazing guide, her knowledge and enthusiasm makes this tour a must. You really get to see Phuket Town as it was meant to be seen. Apart from the history factor all... More

Khun Chaya did a wonderful job guiding us through the Old Town of Muang Phuket. She did it with knowledge and humour, knowing many nice details of the town and the people who inhabit it. Since she is from the area herself and her family lives there for a long time, the nicest details came out. All told in perfectly... More
