What people say about this tour
We tasted Thai dishes I had never heard of and probably can't get in the US unless I prepare them myself. Nonetheless, everything and every place she took me was excellent. With a running commentary in fluent English on the regional nature of the cuisines I was sampling, Tiny also filled in lots of details about Thai culture, both around food and other aspects of life. Overall, this was one of the best food tours I've taken, and Tiny's caring and attentive guidance made it all possible. A must do activity in Bangkok!FredRo1948, TripAdvisor
Did the local food tour around Bangrak on Aug 9. Get ready to eat for 4-5 hours, but the tour takes your to 5-7 different places and even across the river. Everything is well paced so you have a short walk in between every tasting, yet manageable in the Bangkok heat.DinhoGeneve, TripAdvisor
We were especially happy with the variety and quality of the food we were able to try and there was no way we would have found so many wonderful hidden gems on our own. Some of our personal favorites were the mataba at the 2nd stop, lemongrass chicken at the 3rd stop, & pandanus custard buns at the 4th stop. We will definitely be recommending this to friends who visit Bangkok!jonpohl, TripAdvisor
I had a food coma at the end of the tour due to all the great food!Krissa M, TripAdvisor
I recommend, skip breakfast if you're joining this tour.
