When in Hoi An, make time for the half day cooking class to Thuan Tinh Island. Other reviewers have broken down the day well, markets, boat ride, the chef, passionfruit juice etc. I will just add by saying the food you cook is amazing, the staff make sure you don't screw it up, and it is an all round great...

My boyfriend and I were drawn to this cooking class because of the rave reviews…luckily they were all true! Since the food in Vietnam is unbelievable, I was excited to take back some skills and eat the cuisine at home. As for the class, it was fun, informative, easy to follow and best of all….so TASTY. Thanks to Mo for... More

My husband wasn't to trilled about the idea of a cooking class and tried to get out of it but was very glad he didn't. We were picked from our hotel and taken to the market. There were 11 in our group and we were given a small shopping basket each to take around the market.The young Vietnamese girl who... More

Lovely experience! We started early in the morning going to the market with our guide (Mo), who did an exceptional job during the whole tour, (very good english level), and buying fresh food for the cooking class. Afterwards we went to the island by boat and we did 5 or 6 dishes by ourselves! It was amazing to see how... More

Hotel pickup. Our wonderful guide Trang took us on a journey through Hoi An markets explaining each product we bought with how and why it is to be used in one of our dishes. Throw in a 40min boat ride seeing locals working the water then a cooking class catering for beginners up and you have three experiences for the... More

The day began with a trip to the market and we bought the fresh ingredients with the locals. Then we went to a house where we cooked a lot of great and exotic meals. The chef was very very nice, she is like "the grandma you wanted to have". Sweetpassion fruit juice was always available on my table. Everything was... More

A great day. I was a bit dubious on the boat and as we landed, wondering what we had gotten ourselves into. Remote feeling location approached by water. But what a wonderful experience. Our guide and chef were super. The dishes just kept coming and all staff were friendly to a fault. Highly recommended. Now if I could just get... More

With so many cooking classes available in Hoi An, I was unsure if I had chosen the right one. Yet this is so much more than a cooking class. It is an experience and a wonderful way to see parts of Hoi An and Vietnamese life than you would otherwise. It has been absolutely one of the highlights of our... More
