What people are saying about Phuket

A fabulous afternoons cooking class with Karm. We met at her house and went immediately to the market to buy the ingredients for the four dishes we had asked to cook. Spring rolls, Panang curry, Pad Thai and banana fritters. We are both experienced home cooks but learnt loads about new ingredients and tips . All very well explained and demonstrated before being let loose ourselves. Facilities were spot on. It has inspired us to be more adventurous. We came away with the recipes and notes to recreate at home. Highly recommended hands on tour.

August was an amazing and knowledgeable tour guide. He took us through the city of Old Town Phuket and was telling us the history of the city. He even gave his umbrella to one of our friends as it started to raining mid tour. August took us to food locations that are originally local to the town and they were all delicious places! Description says food tour but it felt like both a food tour and walking tour around the city! Overall, it was a great experience and I highly recommend to book your tour with August.

An excellent tour. Our guide, Nam, was great. Seven stops in total. We tried a wide range of local specialities in places we would never have found ourselves. Tour delivered everything it promised and we hoped for. One tip, arrive hungry to enable you to try everything!

Very great and easy cooking lesson! The teacher is patient, funny and looks after any of your dietary requirements. You will be amazed by your own Thai cooking skills. For sure we will try the dishes at home. Thank you!

Very nice evening with kind people. I really appreciated to discover the nightlife of Patong with them. I recommend you that tour. If you travel alone or with friends, do it !
