Frequently Asked Questions about Bangkok Backstreet Food Tasting Tour
Depending on the tour, our minimum group numbers are either 2 or 4. In the unlikely event that the tour doesn’t reach the required guest numbers, we will be in contact to either change your booking to another day or offer a full refund, whichever suits you best.
All our tours are currently run in English worldwide, although of course our guides speak the local language (and will be happy to teach you a bit of the basics if you wish). For whole group tour bookings in other languages we are happy to try and find a local translator if essential. Please book your tour as early as possible in this instance to give us time to make arrangements.
To ensure the best possible service, our tours have a maximum of 12 people, though some are smaller. In some cases, we have more than one guide per tour allowing for a more intimate experience. Our small groups allow us access to the best foodie spots in town, many of which are street vendors or tiny establishments. Should you be travelling in a larger group and all wish to take the tour together then of course we can arrange for you to do so if you let us know before booking. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire.
There is no need to tip each of the stops on your tour. Our guides are well paid and do not solicit tips from guests. However, should you wish to show your appreciation, our guides will be more than happy to receive any extra bonus. This is totally at your discretion and not at all necessary.
Please ensure you arrive promptly for your tour. If you are new to the area and traffic is busy we advise aiming to arrive at the meeting point earlier than the start time on your booking confirmation. To ensure the other guests reach every food spot, our guides will wait up to 15 minutes for late arrivals. Should you be running late, please contact your guide locally on the contact details (telephone, WhatsApp or email) to arrange a meeting point later in the tour. Our guides will do everything in their power to arrange for you to join the trip as soon as possible, but please be aware that there is no refund available for late arrivals or no shows.
Please print off your ticket or download it to your phone and bring it with you. Don’t worry, should this be forgotten, you won’t be penalized, although our guide will need to contact head office to confirm.
Under most circumstances tours will continue to be run even if the weather isn’t quite as perfect as we’d all like it to be on holiday. Most tours feature indoor and undercover dining along the way and your guide may change the tours itinerary slightly to suit such occasions. Please bring an umbrella during rainy season. However, if tours are cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances, your guide will contact you. If you have any concerns about the weather, you can either contact us at email@example.com or your guide directly on the contact details provided on the ticket.
To ensure that guests have the maximum time eating and exploring we include an easy-to-find meeting point for each tour (instead of spending time picking up each guest from hotels around the city which can take up valuable time). The meeting point is shown on your ticket and directions will be written in the local language to show a taxi driver. Your guide will be waiting at the meeting point holding a sign and wearing A Chef’s Tour t-shirt. Should you have any trouble finding the meeting point, please contact your guide on the details provided on the ticket (telephone, WhatsApp, email).
