We had an awesome day, great experience and lots of knowledge from our guide at the market, very very interesting. Cooking master Te was fun and very dedicated, and the rest of the staff were on the ball at all times to make sure we had everything we needed. Combine the great cooking experience with a nice boat ride and... More

My girlfriend and I are big into cooking and we found that the half day experience was great. The market tour was interesting and little boat riding through the coconut grove was beautiful too. The cooking class was done very professionally and all the people there were helpful and friendly to us. We had lots of fun. Just 1 thing... More

Vi was a wonderful guide. First, she showed us how to find all the ingredients in the local street market. Then we traveled by boat to the open air cooling school. We learned to make 4 excellent traditional dishes including fresh spring rolls and pho. The chef was very animated and easy to follow with Vi's help and translations. She... More

Highlight of our trip. We have a group of 6 ladies and we could not stop talking about it for next few hours! Even suitable for my 10 year old daughter who cut, cook and ate everything she prepared. Mo, our gentle guide is humorous and very knowledgeable. The chef was very entertaining and funny. This is one of the... More

This is a must....you go to the market...shop. travel by boat to a fantastic local site to learn how to cook Viet nam style. It was awesome. Of note..we had some young children with our group and the tour guide Hun (or Hon) looked after them spectacularly.....it was an experience for all.

This class was organised through our home stay and was great value for money. Starts with a tour through the market where we looked at different ingredients we were going to be using that day. Definitely worth it to get a better understanding of the local market. The boat ride to the class was entertaining enough. Learnt to make 3... More

We did this cooking tour yesterday and we had such fun. Other reviews have described it perfectly, all the staff were friendly and helpful and we really learnt about the cooking. The chef was so friendly, even though she didn't speak much English. Highly recommended. Thanks to all the staff.

Loved the day we had with this cooking school and their awesome staff. We started the day off with a market tour, it poured and poured until the streets were rivers! Mo, our fantastic guide remained cheerful despite being soaked through and through. We opted to catch taxis from the market to the cooking school, rather than face more wind... More

We attended the Thuan Tinh Island cooking class this afternoon and both loved it! Our English speaking guide, Hon, was extremely friendly and informative. We were kept busy from start to finish (roughly 9am until 1.30pm), beginning with a walk around the market to buy fresh ingredients followed by a 30-40 boat ride to Thuan Tinh island. On arrival to... More
