Fon(? Pronounced like phone) (and her assistant -sorry we forget your name!) was absolutely phenomenal on our tour. Not only was the food incredible, she provided great info and history of the food, the shops and anything we could think to ask. The food was always hot (or cold) and fresh, service was great and we never had to wait long. The pace was perfect for so much food and Fon kept us engaged and entertained the entire time. There was loads of variety in the dishes and she really tailored to our preferences (Ie our spice tolerances). We tried over 16 dishes, which were basically all you can eat. If there was something we loved and polished off, she would get us more. Do yourself a favour and skip the preceding meal- you’ll thank me later. Thanks again for such a great tour Fon & company!

Jazzy was friendly, knowledgeable and truly looked after us for 4 hours. We discovered places that we wouldn’t have known about and tried food that we may not have found without such a guide. No tasters or samples either, but full plates of food at every stop. Towards the end of the tour we visited a number of art exhibitions and galleries as we digested everything.

Great tour with excellent food and very interesting explanations and background stories from a very nice guide Nood.

Fantastic experience. Tukta is superb. Excellent food tasting, excellent guide. Great choice of dishes

Jesse made sure we had a wide variety of street food.
