Chaya was responsive to emails prior to the tour date and answered any and all questions and kept up with people and payments (payments were made by the individual tour members through... More

Just back from a 5 hour tour in Phuket Town with Chaya: What a guide :-) Really felt like a tailor made tour for the 3 of us, like meeting an old friend to go and discover nice little gems of her home town. It was enlightening and we feel we understand Thailand a little bit more, so thanks again... More

I took Chaya's walking tour of Phuket Town earlier this week with my husband. We had visited Phuket Town once before, five years ago, so it was interesting to see how much the old town area has been cleaned up. Chaya was very friendly, down to earth and easy to chat to about anything you'd care to ask about Thai... More

Excellent, the highlight of our stay in Phuket and the reason we would go back again! Chaya (our tour guide) was so well informed, we were able to visit a Thai fishing village (the Sea Gypsies) and learn so much about Phuket and the Thai culture. I can recommnd Chaya and her tours more highly!

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
