Incredible experience. From shopping for fresh ingredients at the market, to the boat ride to the island, and the step-by-step instructions on how to make delicious Vietnamese cuisine, it was a highlight of our trip for sure. The lady to taught the class was adorable and funny, the food itself looked fantastic (if I do say so myself) and was... More

I had a fantastic experience & highly recommend. Trang (pronounced Jan) looked after us & took us to the morning market (hectic) to buy the supplies. We caught the 45min boat to the cooking station & then were taken through the steps of making four AMAZING meals. Jan was full of knowledge & tips along the way, we all learnt... More

The whole experience made for a well spent morning. From sourcing produce at the local market to grinding the rice milk, it was a great interactive experience and efficiently run. The boat trip out to the island was a great experience in itself. Additionally, our guide and chef were both lovely.

We chose Thuan Tinh as we thought the boat trip added an extra dimension. The whole course was well run: pick up was on time and our guide/translator, Trang, was conscientious and explained what was going to happen at each stage. Firstly, we went to the market and Trang explained the ingredients we would be using and also answered any... More

The Thuan Tinh Island cooking tour could not be more deserving of a five star review. We took one of the morning tours, and we were met by a lovely guide who spoke excellent English. She took us to the market, and explained all of the different ingredients we were buying (some cooking tours I've been on take you around... More

We emailed the company directly the night before in the hope that we could book on this trip as the reviews were so good and were impressed to get immediate confirmation late that night for early pick up at 720am! Cost was USD32 each. A delightful young girl called Thuy was our guide and she took us off to the... More

After a lot of research we chose this cooking school based on the extra's. Firstly every cooking school visits the markets to collect ingredients for the day, but then this tour provides a relaxing boat ride down the river and thru the coconut waterways. We then transfer onto a smaller boat for our arrival at the island school. Huge undercover... More

Great tour! While there was definitely some "magic" happening on the side where suddenly our broth or peanut sauce was ready, we were getting our hands dirty, making great food! Loved the location, looking out at the water, breeze blowing through the pavilion. Plus the unlimited passion fruit juice! We're actually planning on trying to recreate our meal this weekend....
