Me, husband, 11 yr old girl and 12 yr old son did this trip today. It was brilliant. The market, the boat ride, the little boat ride through coconut Palms, the rice splitting and making rice milk. All before the cooking started. Cooking such fun, great chef, great attendants, and plenty of them to help! Highly recommend this amazing experience... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip! We weren't sure what to expect, but it was a really great day. The day started with a pickup at our hotel, then we met the rest of the group at the Hoi An Market. We explored the market and shopped for all the fresh ingredients that we would be using... More

...so compare what is in your offer. We booked via our hotel, same rate as in internet. The package included taxi pick up from hotel, market visit with shopping for spices, fruits and vegetables. Then we had a 45 - 60 Min boat ride which was really nice. First with a boat for 12 people followed by a short boat... More

We had a spare morning in between changing hotels and decided to take a chance to see if we could book into the cooking class the night before. We received a return email in no time confirming our reservation. And I am so glad we were able to get in. What a fun time we had learning about the different... More

The trip was amazing, our family have never really done anything like a cooking course on holiday so we were about unsure whether we would enjoy it or not. But, I must say this was one of the highlights on our holiday. Everything about the class was perfect. Firstly the staff are the best, so helpful and funny! The trip... More

This was my first cooking class and it did not disappoint. We made four different dishes: spring roll, rice pancakes, beef salad, and traditional Vietnamese pho. The best part was that they gave us the recipes in English so we could make them again if we wanted to. The staff was amazing. Book this now!

Hone your Vietnamese cooking skills in this well-organized, exciting class. Enjoy a unique hands on experience that you will never forget. The staff there are incredibly patient, knowledgable, and attentive. Mo is amazing. She is a wonderful instructor and my friend and I had a wonderful time.

Put these people on your MUST DO list if you visit HOI AN. Fantastic day out with great exposure to all things Vietnamese, from starting in the market buying produce, to the boat and canoe ride to the farm. Here you are introduced to all things they do from growing herbs to making rice milk to of course cooking. "MUMMA"... More
