Once again I can highly recommend Phuket Heritage Tours with Chaya. I was lucky enough to do a tour in April, we went north into Phang Nga. I have previously been on two tours with Chaya & I was the only one on tour, this time I was also lucky as we had a full group of eight, seven fellow... More

I had booked the Meet the locals tour after reading many great reviews and we certainly weren't disappointed. Steve and I were very surprised to find we were the only 2 people, which meant we could enjoy the day at our own pace. We learnt so much about the people of Thailand and the history of Phuket and were able... More

After walking around Patong & doing all the usual attractions, I stumbled across the heritage & food tour on trip advisor & can't understand why it's not up the top of the tours as it has outstanding reviews??? If you want to find out about Phukets rich heritage & history then this is a must, if you want to eat... More

Chaya is a fantastic guide, her deep knowledge and excellent English made this a perfect day. We visited a few off the beaten path sites, and she made sure that we had all the information we needed. The amazing lunch was a real pleasure, I give this a 10/10

I have spent a whole day with her, and... More

Like a lot of other Reviewers, I was fortunate that I discovered the "Phuket Heritage Trails Tours" on-line whilst studying Tripadvisor for alternative things to do whilst holidaying in Phuket. Having been to Phuket twice before, my wife and I had just about seen all of the 'touristy' places available - or so we thought. I initially contacted Chaya by... More

We were looking for a tour that gave us a little more cultural understanding than just the quick once-overs we usually do as tourists. This was it! We did the Sunday "Meet the Locals" with the Night Market, and it was a beautiful day. Chaya picked us up, took us for a terrific Thai lunch, drove us to some off-the-beaten-path... More

If you are looking for a tour guide to take you to places that aren't the usual same old boring tourist destinations then this is the tour company for you. Kritchaya NaTakuathung (Chaya) is a friendly, easy to understand, upbeat tour guide with an amazing knowledge of all things Thailand. You can ask her anything to do with the country... More
