Tour guide ( Ja Jaa) was informative and easy to understand. We tasted variety of foods...( grilled skewer pork, Thai tea, Thai dessert of sticky rice, noodle dishes, salads, fruits....) There is a bit of walking about. We went places we would not ventured on our own, which was the point of this tour. There were 2 opportunites for restroom on the tour. I would advise to skip breakfast or eat a light breakfast before this tour. Meeting point was easy to find. Tour guide helped us find our way back. Great tour.

We loved our tour. If you are staying near Bangrak and even if you are not, this tour is brilliant. We visited lots of different food places that we had walked right by before. Never again. The tour has opened up a world of dining possibilities.

I fully recommend this experience. The best way to get to know Thai street food, taste lots of different things, and get to know the country better. Ja Jaa was the most knowledgeable, kind and lovely guide ever!!

Besides the hustle of the streets, the stand-up joints, tables in the street and more formal sit-down restaurants we got to see the variety of condiments used in making curry paste, visited a sweets business that was created by a a former chef in the Thai royal court, how coffee is made in the streets of Bangkok and drank a very, very good coffee from a plastic bag!... Bella, our guide, and Pat, her aide in training, are obviously at home navigating this multicultural neighborhood. They provided a very enjoyable and unique experience. Some of the places we visited would be very hard if not impossible to find otherwise. This is a brief but very good introduction to the sights, colors, smells and the art of eating in Bangkok.

Katy was a great tour guide. She took our group to restaurants that were located in some of the back alleys of Bang Rak. We tried traditional Thai and Chinese dishes, and received education on the background of the many different cultures, people and food that together, define this vibrant city. Katy is a teacher by profession, so it stands to reason that we started the tour with some learning goals and objectives. Throughout the tour, Katy would consistently refer back to them as she discussed the history surrounding the areas we were in, and the food we were eating. Then, at the end of the evening, we debriefed as a group, and Katy summarized the tour, and circled back to our initial goals and objectives. Overall, it was a great evening with listening to Katy, and making some new friends along the way. Thank you again for a truly enjoyable evening.

Greatly enjoyed this tour. It was a lot of food and we greatly enjoyed trying all the food. The walk wasn't an issue - it helped to walk some of the food down to eat more and see the city up close. Bella, our tour guide was awesome. She was knowledgeable, funny, and good at her job. It was great that she took pictures and sent them to us which was a very nice touch.We had a great group which made the tour even better. I recommend this tour and Bella!

Fabulous experience trying various foods that you normally would never try on your own. Great guide keeping us all informed and together.

We had been in Bangkok for a few days before we went on this trip and were leaving for other parts of Thailand the next day. The tour was amazing and set us up to understand Thai food better and know how to eat Thai food, what types of food items we might light to eat more of, and the history of various foods in Thailand. The guide was great, our group were strangers before but not after the tour, and the local food purveyors were wonderful! Would highly recommend this trip to anyone!!

We had a great morning with our guide, Katy. We sampled some street food, some restaurant food and had some experiences truly eating like a native! Katy was knowledgeable about the food, the history of the area and the restaurants. We discovered some small eateries of Bangkok that we would never have found on our own and ate some truly delicious and interesting food. Katy promised that, during our 3 1/2 hour tour, we would learn about Bag Rak, learn about some food and be full! She scored a 3/3!

Tamie was GREAT fun! Talented, informative, with a sense of humor to make the trip extra fun. Lots of food. She also took a lot of photos and promised to send them to us so that we don't have to try to take a selfie while trying to eat our street food. She was also good about washing our hands with wipes and purrel-ing. Recommend.

I wish we would have done this excursion earlier in our trip. My daughter and I struggled a bit at the beginning of our trip with knowing where to eat and what to eat. Our guide Tammie showed us a great time! We went to a combination of street vendors and sit-down restaurants, trying a combination of sweet and savory foods. Tammie gave us a lot of historical and cultural information, and she was really sweet and attentive to my 10 year old daughter's picky taste buds.

Highly recommend this tour. We went to about 6 or so different places, trying several foods at each. Great, wide selection of foods, very good quality, and Thai culture, customs, and cooking were explained. Our tour guide, Katy, was superb, and was able to keep our group moving at a decent pace. Superb!
