Incredible tour. Guide was the perfect intermediary between us and the local food vendors. We tried probably 10+ different kinds of food, most of which we never would have tried on our own. Highly recommend.

This tour was SO much fun. Our guide (Farm) was so genuine and welcoming. To start this was the first food tour I've ever been on where they wrote out the names and preparations of the dishes for me to take home, which was both helpful as a reference and a cool souvenir. I loved the balance between stopping and walking, we got to see a ton of stuff in the city but it felt like there were nice breaks to regain energy as well, and seeing temples in between the food stops was a great way to experience local culture and rebuild an appetite. The khao soi stop was really special, but I also loved that as things caught our eye our guide encouraged us to try them even if they weren't on the "script". I think my only suggestion would be to have a bit more depth on how the food itself is prepared vs. just what it is.

We absolutely loved our tour with Aei. She was there to meet us right on time, she took us to sooo many amazing places for food, and she was incredibly knowledgable about the history of Chiang Mai. We expected to get great food on the tour, but we ended up having some of the best dishes of our entire trip. The omelette pad Thai was unreal! Aei was so much fun to talk to, and she really gave us a local's insight on her city. We definitely would not have had the same experience if we hadn't booked this tour. The pace was perfect and the food was out of this world. She made us feel like locals for the evening! Highly recommend.

We were our own group of 8 people and we had a great day with Farm. We had a short time in Chiang Mai--and when this happens, I like to book a tour so that we get max exposure to things we wouldn't have discovered on our own. And this tour did not disappoint. We started with Khao Soi at Khao Soi Khun Yai--which we had already eaten at the day before since it pops up on all the top Khao Soi lists out there including Andy Ricker of Pok Pok fame. But we were all so happy to be back! Then it was time for a good overview of some of the best Wats in Chiang Mai--there's so many that having a guide help navigate the highlights was important to our group. We did a market, had coconut ice, learned about the town and then it was time to eat again! Mae Pa Sri didn't disappoint--even though we were still a little full from the Khao Soi and other treats. We'd def put this place on our do again list. We did some more temple touring and finished with an amazing ginger tea in a nice spot! Thanks Farm and Chiang Mai food tours! Highly recommend!

Last week I took the "Taste of the North & Old Town Chiang Mai Walk" led by Phan(?). Despite seeing very positive reviews below, my experience was lackluster. We got some really good food, but the guide was not able to provide the kind of depth that I had hoped and have experienced on other similar tours. The tour consisted of the following elements: * We quickly walked through a small marketplace where the guide gave moderately detailed explanations of different spices, fruits/veggies, and meats. * We took a taxi (red two-bench truck) to the edge of the old town and got Khao Soi at a great little restaurant. * We went to a nearby temple to digest. * We took a taxi to the three kings monument where the guide talked about the history of Chiang Mai. * Walked to another restaurant. On the way, we grabbed a small dessert for later and got coconut granita. * At that restaurant, we tried many different dishes from the region. Everything was good, but the place definitely seemed more tourist-centric than "best of" Chiang Mai. The majority of the food for the day was from this restaurant. * We walked to one of the biggest temples in the old city and attended a "monk chat." I felt pushed into attending "monk chat" to kill extra time we had at the end. * We ended with tea at a nearby hotel with cool architecture and outdoor seating. It was nice to be able to ask the tour guide about life in Chiang Mai and cultural norms. I thought that this was more interesting than a lot of the food-centric discussions. The Khao Soi restaurant was also a highlight of the day. I was disappointed that we only spent a short time in the market, as I was really looking forward to this part of the tour. Additionally, the majority of the food from the day came from one restaurant. Trying to eat so much at one time was difficult, it would have been nice if this was spread out more. I don't think we attended 6 tasting locations as advertised on the website. I also asked a lot of food questions that I don't think were too advanced that the guide wasn't able to give great answers to. When comparing to other activities we did in Thailand, I would say that it was not worth the $50/person, but your mileage will vary depending on the tour guide.
