We did the food shopping in the local market, prepared three dishes and had a feast for lunch. The whole class was very impressive due to the thoughfulness, organisation and friendliness... More

This was the best tour we have done in Hanoi. We experienced real Street Food with the best guide you can ask for in Kevin. He made the whole tour very enjoyable and interesting with his commentary. Would definitely recommend this to everyone. Kevin is very funny and knowledgeable. He also does cooking classes which we would have loved to... More

He took us around to all of the different street vendors in town, allowed us to taste a wide variety of food, and then ultimately took us to make some amazing food (that we... More

After walking around the local street markets and Dong Xuan Market with our guide from the Blue Butterfly restaurant to pick up the ingredients we would need, we headed back not to the Blue... More

We walked through a local market that sold hardware and gift items, and then onto the class. Class was held in a local restaurant. We... More
