Of the 100 or so cooking classes on offer in Hoi An we chose this one because it included Pho noodle soup which we love, it included a trip downstream on the river, and it wasn't held in a closed room. We were not disappointed. Our guide, Mo, was delightful. With excellent English. The class is very hands on but... More

A very enjoyable morning class, the recipes were delicious and well articulated to us by the chef and also backed up by printed versions. The actual cooking was fairly hands on and the staff really looked after you, the constant supply of passion fruit juice is a bonus! The market visit was fascinating and the pick up and drop off...

Where to begin! Myself & my boyfriend (who is a chef) were looking for the best class in Hoi An & we absolutely found it. We started early 8:15am hotel pick up & headed for the riverside markets. Our guide (Hon) had fantastic English & his ability to guide us through the food market buying all of the day's ingredients... More

This cooking class is a great experience! We started out at the market where we went shopping for the ingredients we were going to use for the cooking class with the very nice and friendly Mo. She took us through the market and told a lot of interesting things about the cooking and grocery shopping traditions in Hoi An. After... More

We enjoyed bike and cooking tours to Thuan Tinh Island. The friendliness of the people living on the island was wonderful and they were very supportive and helpful when fellow travellers became feint during the Tour.

This class is brilliant and well worth the money. I am vegetarian and was totally catered for with different kinds of tofu and various vegetables. From the trip round the market to the boat trip to the cooking (and eating) this was a fantastic experience and if totally recommend it and it definitely deserved 5 stars.

Trang picked us up from the hotel and took us (and the rest of our group 8others) around the local morning market. She showed us the items we would be cooking with later in the day as well as explaining all the different herbs, spices and flavours. We then boarded the first boat for a relaxed cruise down the river,... More

We booked this tour from our hotel in Da Nang the night before and we able to get in with no issues. We arrived at the designated meeting place in Hoi An which was easy to find and the guides who met us were all in uniform shirts to identify them easily. There were about 30 people split into 2...

After breakfast, I rent motorbkie to drive along the Thu Bon River where you have a chance to take photographs of many fishing boats and small houses. Continue driving through Thuan Tinh Ecological village and take the opportunity to see areca-nut gardens, family shrines and local villagers going about daily life. We drive along quiet inland trails, past water-coconut palm... More
