Great tour! It started to rain right before our tour started so TuMm took us on the tour in his car. He answered all of our questions and easily accommodated our diet as we are vegetarian. It is clear he knows a lot about Chiang Mai and showed us many places that we might never have found or heard about. Thank you, TuMm

Very nice tour with plenty of good option to eat in three markets. The local wholesale market is quite interesting to really understand what is the local food available. A missed a bit of more guidance regarding which plates to choose and in which order. Nevertheless, we learn about the main streets of Chiang Mai with interesting activities and restaurants. Thanks Jakkrit!

What an absolutely amazing evening! I hesitated to join after a very hot and exhausting day, but thank goodness I went! Tum is genuinely one of the nicest and most open people I’ve met so far in Thailand. He is super knowledgeable on all things Chiang Mai and food and was able to answer every single one of my questions. Truly a highlight of my time in Chiang Mai so far! Don’t miss out!!
