This tour is AMAZING. The food experiences - market visits, cooking classes, street food, restaurants - are authentic and delicious, and you'll come away with a great understanding of the culture of Thai food (and some fab recipes to make at home). I loved this tour so much, I'd actually do it again!

Not really a review! I was hoping for an 'any other comments' box where I could point out that one of your previous questions about brochures is daft as I didn't think you'd produced any for some years?! I used to like a brochure...
