      Highly recommend this!
      Tukta was the best guide. She coupled information on the origins of the different foods and their cultural meanings with the country’s cultural history. I learned a lot and eat even more. No regrets!!!

      Great food, great experience, great guide. What more could you want?
      What an experience to see Bangkok through its food. We would never have seen or tasted the food of Bangrak neighborhood without this tour. Food was delicious, if not a little too spicy for some in our group. Tukta was an amazing guide. She was personable, laughed together, and we learned much about life in Bangkok. Highly recommend this tour.

      A must do during your visit to Bangkok!
      My husband and I had such a great time on the tour with Jongkie! She was so friendly and knowledge, pointing out all the different foods and took great care of us amidst the hustle and bustle of Chinatown so we always felt safe. Jongkie had a list of great foods for us to try and was very accommodating when we saw a street food that we wanted to try. We also visited a temple and participated in the activity there. Also, she took so many great photos for and of us. What a great way to document the night for us to remember the foods and experiences we had.

      Quaint Bangrak serves great food!
      Had a great time at Bangrak, not far from Bangkok city center, with Tukta our friendly tour guide. Got to taste authentic Thai food in small neighbourhoods. Aroi! The pandan custard bread and milk tea at that bakery is truly life changing. Must-do tour for food lovers :)

      Lovely Thonburi
      Unique tour through the village, canals and markets of Thonburi with May, our tour guide. Had food we've never tasted before despite coming to Bangkok many times. Learnt some history of the temples. Fed the catfishes. Steady boat ride. What a lovely day!

      Chinatown for tour with our amazing tour guide Tukta
      We've been to Bangkok many times and previously done the midnight tuktuk tour so this time we booked a private tour of Chinatown. Our guide Tukta was lovely - she gave us lots of interesting history and facts about the area and culture. The pace of the tour was great - my mother has mobility issues and Tukta was extremely considerate of her, making sure she was ok and slowing down whenever she needed. We started with fishcake noodles at a 90 year old family owned business, then visited a temple and shrine before diving into the incredible buzz of Yaowarat Road. The atmosphere was particularly electric with lunar new year celebrations and it was such fun. Tukta took us to dimsum and seafood restaurants that we would never have found on our own mixed in with fantastic street food snacks. Every single dish was delicious and though we eventually ran out of tummy space it was a deeply satisfying experience. Great fun and super delicious- I highly recommend!

      Unforgettably and worth every single penny
      What an extraordinary trip. We had the pleasure to spend half a day with Gimao. She’s amazing - knowledgable, friendly, funny and caring. She could write the book on being a super guide. Ask for her, she’s simply the best. Thank you so much. It felt like we knew each other for ages. We tried a lot of different lovely food and got a lot of information. Cheers Chris and Bianca from Switzerland.

      Great culinary experience
      Preme was the perfect guide even forgiving me when we went to the wrong train station, warning easily done! Started with the best dish of the day, beef noodle soup mmm, ending with a spicy pork soup and everything in between. Preme was perfect company and patiently answered all our questions. If you are in Bangkok then this tour should be a must.

      Great Private Tour
      My wife and I had a great time on the Private Ancient Ayutthaya Food and History Tour in mid-January. We visited three ancient temples (including the one with Buddha's head embedded in tree branches and roots), made three food stops (including a full lunch, giant river prawns, every manner of delicious local cuisine) with visit to the kitchen to watch the preparation, and had fun stops where we made a delicious confectionary (people from other tours simply watched, laughing along but unable to do it themselves) and fed elephants from a long-tailed boat. Olive was an exceptional guide, knowledgeable, with excellent English and a good sense of humour. The comfort of the airconditioned private van was perfect for the long trip and the afternoon heat, and included hotel pick-up and drop-off. A great excursion, well worth the price.

      Fantastic tour!!
      My family thoroughly enjoyed the 'City Bites' tour. Our tour guide Gimao was fantastic and really made the tour so enjoyable for our group. She was lively, so friendly and very good with the kids. Her knowledge of the temples we visited and the local food we tasted was great. Would highly recommend.

    We took this tour on our trip to Bangkok in Dec. We had a terrible experience. The food is not mediocre but below average. The first stop was at this no-name restaurant where none of the dishes were flavorful. It was not edible. When we entered, our tour guide told us that there will be fish but what we were served is a fish dish made of fish scales. We asked the guide multiple times that what is this because it didn't taste anything like fish. We were then taken to this noodle place where again the food has NO TASTE at all. We paid $160USD for such a less food and the food that has no flavor. I wonder how did they find these type of places in a city like Bangkok, which has such a good food.We had really high hopes from this tour as it has 5 star rating on Trip Advisor. After the rooftop bar, we left and didnt even go to the pad thai place. I wish they refunded our money. My husband and I reall think this is some sort of scam. Deeply disappointed and a waste of our $160 USD.

    We would highly recommend this food tour, especially if you are a first-time visitor to Bangkok. It’s a great way to explore the city, seeing some well known and less well known areas, and the food that you enjoy is amazing.

    Our guide, Mod, was friendly, knowledgeable and fun. She knew a great deal about the food we were eating and was able to answer all of our questions, but also told us a lot about the history and culture of Thailand and the specific sites we visited. It felt like more than a food tour in that respect.

    We loved all of the food we ate. We went on the tour at the end of a two week visit to Thailand but hadn’t tried many of the dishes we ate during the tour. We particularly loved the noodles with chicken and runny egg, eaten at a street food stall in the back streets of Bangkok, the Phad Thai, and the Chinese street food dumplings. All of it was delicious. There’s a LOT of food though, so make sure you haven’t had a large lunch!

    This tour was amazing, a great way of spending 4 hours on an evening riding on a tuk tuk being shown the sights and tastes of Bangkok. Our tour guide was JONGKIE and she was EXCELLENT, very knowledgeable with the city, the foods, explaining the culture and in great detail how you can cook your food and tips on how to change your flavours, i’ll let Jongkie explain and not ruin the surprise.

    We visited amazing street food locations which i cant imagine we would have every done on our own. We got to watch the food being cooked in the street which was amazing to watch. We visited a flower market which was a great experience and takes you very much off the normal tourist roads and also got to visit the Reclining Buddha Temple (although you dont go inside, but its nice to walk around late at night when its quiet and cooler).

    All of the food was incredible (and i’m a fussy eater). The tuk tuk drivers and Jongkie kept the night running smooth and it is well worth the money. I would highly recommend this tour.

    We had a blast doing the Bangkok Midnight Food Tour by Tuk Tuk with Chanya as our guide. The food was interesting and delicious and the Tuk Tuk made for an entertaining way to get from place to place. Our guide, Chanya, was a lot of fun and kept these loose on top of providing interesting information. The tour was paced well with some historical sites mixed in so we didn't get too full too quickly. We would highly recommend this tour and would consider other tours with the same company too.

    My friend and I booked the midnight food tour because we had no idea where to start with Bangkok’s many excellent street food options. This tour turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. The food was excellent and it’s very fun being driven around in a tuk tuk.

    We had Chanya as our guide, who was informative, funny, and excellent at her job. Our tuk tuk driver was also excellent- we felt safe at all times with him driving.

    We had a number of stops along the tour - a restaurant that served northern Thai food, a Chinese/Thai restaurant with a kitchen at the back that has to be seen to be believed, the flower market where we tried some delicious sweet treats, Wat Pho at night, a roof top bar nearby, a restaurant where the original Pad Thai was created, and some mini Thai sweet pancakes. You won’t be hungry at the end of the tour and you’ll leave feeling much more confident to navigate Bangkok’s many street food options by yourself.

    Also, my friend and I were running late (Bangkok traffic - be warned!), so thanks again to Chanya and Art for their patience and responding to my emails along the stressfully late taxi journey to the meeting point.

    This tour combines the fun of whizzing around the city in a tuk tuk, with some good food and a bit of sightseeing/culture thrown in.
    The itinery is well thought out with the first two stops being food based and then an hour or so walking around the flower markets (amazing) and then onto an evening stroll to the temple.
    After that it’s the roof top bar with great views and a final food stop. Your tuk tuk then takes you back to your hotel so no need to make your own way home! The only slight criticism is that we were a big group and got allocated as to who we had to sit with each time. Let’s just say I wouldn’t have chosen my dining companions!!!!!other than that - Highly recommended.

    We thoroughly recommend this excellent tour. Our guide Mook, and great driver accompanied us all evening, and they introduced us to great food and sights we wouldn't have discovered on our own. Their organisation was superb ( even employing someone to queue at the final stop which is a small restaurant where you can't reserve a table so we didn't have to wait! Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly and we had a great evening. Arrive hungry!

    Our family of four adults booked this well in advance during the busy tourist season. Print out the directions to the meeting point so you can show it to the taxi cab driver at your hotel. We taxied with no issues instead of taking the subway. Our group of approximately a dozen people enjoyed the evening with our awesome tour guide, Chenya. The food at the 4 or 5 places we visited was very good. When the tour was finished, our tuk tuks dropped us off at our hotel (Chatrium Riverside Bangkok) with no issues. Also, the price is reasonable for all that you get.

    My husband was feeling ill so I went solo on the Midnight Food Tour with Tukta. The food stops were all delicious - we got to cut the lines at some of the most popular food stops in the city and taste the best fried noodle, pad thai and local fare the city has to offer. Tukta was very knowledgable about the city's history, each restaurant's history as well as cooking styles. The flower market and temple tours were a bonus. Highly recommend!

    Our fantastic Tour Guide Chanya was highly motivated and presented us many different dishes in several locations. She showed us at two locations the real kitchen to understand also the effort of the cooks. Beside, we visited the flower market and the Wat Pho temple at night, where she explained us also the history and the cultural meaning. And the best, your designated Tuk Tuk will bring you back to your Hotel at the end of the tour.
    Overall a very recommendable tour if you want to see the city, enjoy great food and learn more about Thai culture. Only negative issue: You will gain weight, because you cannot stop eating;-)!
