An adventure in flavour, experience the fresh aromas and heavenly spices that make Thai food a worldwide phenomenon.

    • Whip up northern Thai khantohk specialties with Aoi outside of Chiang Mai, and live Thai life from a local's perspective with a stay in her home
    • Experience the eye-opening and surprising world of Thai food markets, filled with unpredictable tastes and found in unexpected places – floating on a river or set up on a railway track!
    • Get ready for a hands-on masterclass in Central Thai cuisine in Kanchanaburi, browsing the market to pick fresh produce before feasting on your creations

Although this is called the "Real Food" Adventure, it was far more than just food. In a very short time, I learned a great deal about Thai culture and customs, all the while enjoying an amazing variety of interesting food. I had an absolutely fabulous time. Soon is a fantastic guide - she was extremely knowledgeable and very open about sharing her knowledge with us. Not only did she manage the tour itinerary with great skill, but also she was always looking for opportunities to point out things we should notice, or things we might want to do on our own after the tour. She has a lovely and gentle personality and a great sense of humor - it's difficult for me to imagine a better guide for this particular tour.

Our tour guide was wonderful. It was fantastic that she also gave us a good insight to the culture, as we went to temples and also gave alms to the monks. We had a lovely group of people and everybody got along well. Soon was amazing! She is such a lovely and bright person, which made the tour more of a special experience. I missed her the day after the tour! Soon was highly interested in teaching us about Thai culture and her English pronunciations were great. She did an absolutely wonderful job.
