Bangkok food tour

BANGKOK FOOD TOUR - Don’t leave the fate of your taste buds to chance. Go straight for this metropolis’s culinary jugular on our Bangkok food tour designed and curated by a Thai chef.

Trust us when we say there's more to Bangkok's street food scene than pad Thai along Khao San Road. But not all is made equal. We'll take you to the chef's favoured spots, places that have been serving up hot suppers to the locals for generations.

Our daily Bangkok food tour - ranked the best food and drink experience in the city on TripAdvisor - will see you wind the city's maze of alleys in the cool of the evening feasting for four hours on hidden street eats you'd simply never find alone.

Get in quick though because our intimate Bangkok food tours - limited to just eight exclusive guests - fill up fast. Our small groups give us access to street food stands and hole-in-the-wall joints that larger food tours just can't.

There's no fun in giving you the whole story, but here's a taste of some drool-worthy highlights: mop up rich peanut satay with coconut-milk marinated chicken skewers and tangy ajat relish, scoop up the city's creamiest curry with cured sausage at a backstreet stall made famous by Netflix's series Street Food (it's always been a local hero), partake in peppery soup with crispy pork belly and rolled rice noodles and end on a sugary high along Yaowarat Road in all it's glowing neon glory.

As for the other dozen or so lip-smackingly good eats? Well, you'll just have to wait to find out.
