Ordinarily I'm not big on food or trying new things so we decided to go with a formal tour provider to play it safe with quality as I'm pretty picky.
We are so glad we did this tour with this provider as not only was our guide fantastic but our individual drivers were perfect! My driver in specific was cautious but fun, making sure he obeyed the law while maintaining that "we're on a bike in the middle of Bangkok at night" experience. Full disclosure: I've never ridden on a motorbike before but felt like a pro 2kms in.
We had a few dishes that I would never have tried otherwise and went to and past places that made us wish we had have stayed in Bangkok longer!
We went to some fresh fruit markets and our guide explained some of the fruit and even went a bit off the beaten path to explain and show us things we didn't understand or expect.
We also went to the night markets where we had some extra time to walk around and feel the city.
Would definitely go again!
