Frequently Asked Questions

Buying Tickets

Booking and paying online guarantees your spot on the tour, as numbers are limited. Having said that, if for whatever reason you are unable to purchase in advance, we can arrange to take payment in local currency if you come to our office pre-tour, or we can arrange to pick the payment up from your hotel.

Contact us in advance via email here, or call us on +66 (0) 32 510 207 to make your booking.

Payments for tickets purchased through our secure online payment platform are encrypted and we have put anti-fraud measures in place to protect your sensitive data.

Our payment system accepts all major credit cards and PayPal.

Our safe and encrypted payment system accepts all major credit (see below) cards as well as PayPal.

Since the payment is going through the PayPal Express payment gateway, the country of issue of the card will determine whether it is actually available in PayPal. As an example, sometimes Amex is not available from certain countries.

Feast Thailand has no control over this aspect of the payment process, unfortunately.

No PayPal account is necessary at all.

At checkout, when you click on Process Payment, you will be transferred to a PayPal secure payment screen where you input your credit card details to complete the booking. It is all simple and painless.

Yes. Contact us via email here, or call us on +66 (0) 32 510 207 and leave your details.
At Feast Thailand Food Tours, we carry compulsory Travel Accident Insurance, which is required by the Tourism Authority of Thailand TAT). This policy is underwritten by AXA Insurance Public Company Limited. All guests on a booking must advise their passport ID details and date of birth in order to be insured, as required by Thai law.

AXA has indicated that people over 75 years of age will not be covered.

Naturally, Feast Thailand cover the cost of this insurance. Please note, however, that this Travel Accident Insurance policy covers you only while on our tour with us and is not intended to replace normal Travel Insurance that any tourist should sensibly hold while travelling and does not include medical costs from sickness, including food poisoning.

If you have had an enjoyable tour and wish to show your appreciation, a gratuity is a wonderful way to do it. Tips are certainly not expected, but are most welcome. All gratuities go directly to our local tour guides and assistants.
Once tickets are purchased, these are binding. Tours run regardless of weather conditions, unless personal safety becomes an issue.

Due to the attention and organisation that goes into each tour, please take careful note of our cancellation and date change policies:

  • 7 or more days before the tour date, expect a 75% refund
  • 3 or more days before the tour date, expect a 50% refund
  • 48 hours or less before the tour date, no refund is possible
  • No Shows; there are no refunds for no shows
  • Please be aware that it is not possible to refund ticketing fees
  • Cancellations must be communicated by email to here .

For a date change, the refund amount will go towards the cost of the tour on the new date chosen.

Indeed we do; for groups both large and small. In fact our experienced consultant can tailor a tour for your needs. Even if you just wish to do one of our existing tours, but wish to do it with just a select group of people, we can accommodate.

At Feast Thailand, we are all about service. Contact us via email here, or call us on +66 (0) 32 510 207 and let us know your requirements and leave the rest to us.

Yes indeed. Our corporate consultant can tailor a tour or event for your company. She has over 20 years experience working in Australia, New Zealand & Singapore. Her roles involved conference and event planning at the highest level. If you have a requirement for your company event, Feast Thailand is confident we can exceed your expectations.

Feast Thailand will contact you 48 hours prior to the tour to either reschedule or offer a full refund.

Who Should Take a Food Tour

Why take a food tour?
• Sample some of Hua Hin’s best food
• Begin to appreciate what it means to be a 'local'
• Become intimate with Thai culture through food
• Pickup 'insider knowledge’ about Hua Hin
• Discover food venues you WILL want to revisit
Children of 12 and over are more than welcome on our tour. The tour is not suitable for children under 12.
Unfortunately our tours are unable to accommodate wheelchairs at this time.
Our tours are a mix of both walking and local transport.

On our Foodies' Food Tour we walk around 1½ km over 3½ hours.

Our 'Jing Jing' Tour has only around 300m walking through the Chai Chai produce market.

Both our Eat Like A Local Tour and 4 Corners of Thailand Tour have no walking at all, as we utilise local transport the entire way.

On all of our tours, there will be many stops for food sampling, as well as water and bathroom stops.

All of Feast Thailand's tours are suitable for all levels of fitness.

All our tours run for close to 3½ hours and there are numerous stops along the way where we sit and relax to recharge. At these stops, we will have bottled water and bathroom breaks.
Absolutely. Not all people living in Thailand or Hua Hin have tried all of the food offerings in Thailand. With a country as diverse as this, with foods from the North, North-East, South and Central, it is impossible to have tasted all that Thailand has to offer.

At Feast Thailand, we aim to focus on the four distinct culinary regions of this magnificent country and believe that we have something to offer even those more versed in Thai food.

We often have singles on our food tours, whether they be single travellers or locals or ex-pats looking for something fun and different to do in Hua Hin. We have found that most people who take our tours are a little adventurous and sociable, excited about trying amazing food and open to meeting new people, or possibly even making new friends! We like to think of each tour group as its own family, exploring Hua Hin and 'breaking bread' together. If you are open to meeting new people and having a great time, you will have a wonderful time on any of our food tours.

The Food

There are certainly vegetarian options available on our tours, however you do need to be aware that true vegetarian food is not as easy to obtain as you might think in Thailand. Many vegetarian dishes will include ingredients such as fish sauce, oyster sauce, shrimp paste and other flavourings derived from animals, which make even vegetable dishes not strictly vegetarian. Some dishes like the fabulous papaya salad, Som Tam, will also have the addition of dried shrimps.

If you need strict vegetarian food, then we will be unable to help you with any of our standard tours.

We could, however, tailor any of our existing tours for you to include only vegetarian options, but we would require a minimum of 2 people to do so.

Please contact us via email here, or call us on +66 (0) 32 510 207 and let us know your requirements and leave the rest to us.

People with gluten-free and other more complex dietary restrictions should contact us via email here, or call us on +66 (0) 32 510 207 before purchasing a ticket.
Not at all. We will try many dessert and sweet dishes, as well as many savoury dishes with absolutely no chilli heat at all. The only exception to this is our 'Jing Jing' Tour, which embraces the true nature of Thai food and its relationship, some would say marriage, to chilli.
This is such a great question and one of the most misrepresented things in Thailand.

The first thing is you are in a country where food is at the very heart of the Thai culture. As a team at Feast Thailand, our staff have sampled all of the food you will taste on our tours and the vendors have been examined for cleanliness and good food hygiene practices. Our meticulous approach to vendor selection should give you confidence in taking one of our tours.

We highly recommend that you don’t eat for at least 3 hours or so before any of our tours, as you will be sampling between 15 and 35 food dishes.

For the tours commencing at either 10:30am or midday, a light breakfast would be OK, but do leave a good 3 hours or so prior to the tour, as there is quite a lot of food.

Yes. We supply bottled water regularly and, depending on the tour, we will also try some local coffee – ‘Café Boran’ and even a cold beer on one of the tours.
We aim to be trying anywhere from 15 to 25 or more individual samples of food and drink, depending on which tour you choose.

We will try everything from hot 'n' spicy dishes, to sweets, herbal drinks and other savoury dishes with absolutely no heat at all (except for the 'Jing Jing' Tour, which deliberately explores the nature of spices, including chilli).

All of our tours include either breakfast & lunch or lunch & dinner.

Our Eat Like A Local Tour starts at 10:30am, so you will have lunch and so many other tastes during the 3½ hour tour that you will not require dinner.

The Weather in Hua Hin

Hua Hin has three distinctive seasons; Cool / Dry - November to February; Hot - March to June and Wet - July to October. However, many a westerner will experience them as hot, even hotter and hot ‘n’ rainy. Having said that, Hua Hin gets one of the lowest rainfalls in Thailand.
For our Foodies' Food Tour, we definitely suggest wearing comfy walking shoes as well as a hat and lightweight clothing. Sunscreen is always a good idea, even on cloudy days, when it is still possible to get burnt.

We will also be carrying sunscreen for anyone who may have forgotten to apply some before leaving.

All of our other tours utilise local transport, so walking shoes are not essential.

Yes, the tours go ahead rain or shine. We offer umbrellas for those sudden downpours sometimes experienced in Thailand at various times. Should the weather be too extreme or dangerous, the tour will either be rescheduled or you will be refunded.

Logistics (duration, people, bathrooms, transport)

All of our tours are approximately 3½ hours long, which will be just long enough for customers to fall in love with this culinary gem of a place.
  • Pickup and drop off at your hotel (distance restrictions apply).
  • All transportation during the tour.
  • All food tasted on the tour. (Breakfast & Lunch or Lunch & Dinner, plus all tastes in between.)
  • Bottled water and local beverages to drink. Alcohol is excluded (except where indicated), but may be purchased.
  • Local Thai tour guide and tour assistant.
  • Umbrellas will be supplied should the heavens open, as well as sunscreen.
At Feast Thailand, we are all about service. We will pick you up and drop you off at your hotel in Hua Hin or Khao Takiab. If your hotel is in Cha-Am, Khao Tao or further afield, we can also pick you up, though for a small fee.
We will advise our guests the day prior to the tour as to their pickup time.

For our Foodies' Food Tour, pickups will begin around 8am for an 8:45am tour start.

For our Eat Like A Local Tour, pickups begin around 9:45am for a 10:30am start

For our 'Jing Jing' Tour and 4 Corners of Thailand Tour, pickups will begin around 11:15pm for a midday start.

Naturally the more guests in varied locations, the earlier the pickups will start.

To keep our tours as intimate as possible, we have a maximum of 10 people per tour, except for our Foodies' Food Tour, which has a maximum number of 6. We also have a minimum requirement of 2 people for a tour to proceed, corporate and private tours excluded. We believe this maintains the intimate cultural experience for everyone.
Yes, a number of our vendors are actually sit down restaurant-style establishments where we will have access to restrooms and water, as well as some delicious food.
Our local Thai tour guides and assistants speak only English and Thai.
Yes. We are pleased to say that Feast Thailand has partnered with the 2 largest online booking companies, Agoda and Booking.com

This means you can book your accommodation for anywhere in the world, not just Thailand.

At the bottom of many of our pages are the 2 booking apps. Just choose which company you would like, click the app and book.

Feast Thailand is paid a small commission for redirecting customers, but the price you pay is exactly the same.

Yes indeed. At Feast Thailand, we also have a relationship in place with a very trusted driver located in Bangkok. I say trusted, as it is the driver and vehicle we personally use when travelling between Hua Hin and Bangkok. The vehicle is immaculate, the driving is very safe and the driver is very reliable when picking up.

We are currently also putting in place affiliations with rail and bus companies. We will shortly be able to offer rail links from anywhere in Thailand, as well as the daily luxury coaches from areas like Bangkok, Phuket, Had Yai, Surat Thani and Chumphon.

Yes. Feast Thailand has partnered itself with RentalCars.com to look after all your vehicle rental requirements, whether in Thailand, Hua Hin or anywhere else in the world.
Yes, currently there are flights to and from Chiang Mai in the north to Hua Hin using Kan Air. That airline has flights on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays from Chiang Mai to Hua Hin and return.
