Food Safety: We take food safety very seriously and all the places that we eat at we believe are of an acceptable standard and cleanliness to take guests to, but it is impossible to 100% rule out any risk of food poisoning. Our food safety record is very good and we have found it more likely a customer will get sick from food prior to our tour than during it.

Dietary Requirements: This is a tour with variety of food and snacks (both sweet and savory). We can somehow adapt for vegetarians but it not suitable for vegetarians and people with specific dietary requirements While we do our best to accommodate, many of the stops are based around single dishes (e.g. spring rolls/chicken noodles/dumplings). Therefore, we cannot guarantee the same experience as others. Note that a lot of Thai - Chinese dishes have fish sauce / oyester sauce / soy sauce in them and this cannot always be avoided. For people with dietary requirements we recommend our Bangkok Night Lights tour.

Suitability for children: We do allow children but as this is a walking tour so we do expect parents to make the judgement as to whether it is suitable for children. We do pass through market areas and narrow alleys so it makes it very challenging with strollers.

  • - Normally there will be 2 people per tuk tuk, However, when an odd number of passengers or children (on child rates) there may be 3 people per tuk tuk.

  • - Advanced booking is required.
