A definite must do if In Phuket which is a mix of visits to little eating houses, cafes and markets. We also visited and learned about some of the historical buildings in the Old Phuket Town. The best food tour to know everything about Thai market, food art and culture, as well as the influences from different ethnies (Myanmar, Chinese and Muslim among others). Pema is the most delightful, caring, phenomenally interesting and fun guide who has a vast knowledge of the locality and the history of the origin of the food. She took us to local restaurants which we would not have found by ourselves and we had the most tasteful food imaginable. It was a feast at every stop and the food is all delicious! Pema, thank you so much for making this a pleasurable tour. Very highly recommended with a lovely guide.

Superb day that put stars in our eyes! Joy our guide couldn't do enough with us and showed us amazing places. She took some wonderful photos and even created a beautiful video montage of our day for us. Activity to do absolutely!
