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

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

Like all those writing reviews before us, we had a great time with Chaya on our Heritage Walking tour. We met with Chaya and another couple where we started off our morning with a great breakfast of rotti and milky tea. We continued our walk, talk and eat around Phuket town with good cheer. We did stop often for another... More

This tour takes you to places that tourists probably wouldn't see - a Buddhist retreat, the seaside village of the Sea Gypsies, a walk around the main street of Phuket old town, and other places of interest to those who want to explore a bit more deeply than the average tourist. I want to do this tour again next time... More

I have never written a tripadvisor review before but I was compelled to do so after having an amazing day with Chaya. Chaya's command of english is that almost of a native english speaker, which made communication a breeze. She also knows her city/home like the back of her hand so the entire day was executed perfectly. It started with... More

Absolutely brilliant in its simplicity. If you are looking to truly learn more and understand the local Phuket culture this is the tour for you. So informative and Chaya, as a local, is so knowledgeable and with a delightful twist of humour. So much great food and we came away with a better understanding of the history and heritage of...
