We had a great time, from doing the marketing at a traditional wet market, to the boat ride to the island, and the cooking class itself. Our first time attending a DIY and a Vietnamese cooking class. First time participating in a cooking tour on a holiday, but it was worth the time. We immersed ourselves in the culture. Food... More

We had an awesome time doing the half-day cooking class with Thuan Tinh. Our instructor, Hon, was a great teacher and a lot of fun to work with. The day starts out with a trip to the local market to pick up all the ingredients, then a nice boat ride downriver past local fishing villages. You switch to a small... More

We booked this due to the Tripadvisor rating and it lived up to expectations and more! Miss Nga our guide spoke very good English and all staff were very friendly and attentive when we got to the cookery school. There was plenty of cooking and eating! A really enjoyable half day and well worth it! Would highly recommend!

It was a great day for me in Hoi An, for sure one of the highlights in Vietnam so far. They will get you in your hotel/hostel, drive you to the local market in the morning, explain about the things, and then take you by boat to an island situated in the middle of a river full of coconut trees....

If you like a lazy day on the beach with cool drinks and good sea food (fish), then this place would be for you. The price range is a bit higher than in Hoi An but, it's still worth a Day Trip.

Like most reviewers, we thoroughly enjoyed this half day cooking class. Our hostess was the lovely Nga. It was fascinating learning about the different foodstuffs in the market & buying our ingredients. Then boat trips were are in interesting addition to the course. The cooking class was superb, easy to do & very entertaining. And doesn't Vietnamese food taste better... More

As all the other reviewers say this is a great food tour. Guide English is very good. Loved the food market. We did morning tour when market is busy. Cooking is set at easy level but that makes for a great relaxed day. Our group was 8 which was just right. Loved the location of cookery school.Good fun day.

This class was recommended by our homestay manager - so glad she did! We started the day being picked up in a minibus to have a tour of the markets and get the ingredients for our cooking. We then had a lovely 45 minute boat ride to the island. Our guide Hon was awesome and spoke English very well. This... More
