3 friends and I took this tour on the 17th of September. Our tour guide was a lovely girl who spoke English very well. The trip through the markets was great, seeing our ingredients being bought fresh. We were given coconut and sugar cane juice before boarding the boat across to the island. After 45 minutes we transferred to a... More

Attended the Thuan Tinh Island cooking class today - they picked us up from our hotel in the morning and took us to the market to buy the ingredients, our tour guide showed us different herbs and vegetables, explaining what they are used for and getting us to smell the differences between them. This was followed by a boat ride... More

There are many cooking class experiences in Hoi An and I believe they are all pretty much the same. You start by being picked up around 8am from your hotel, go down to the town market to buy all the ingredients for the food you will be making, and then head over to where the cooking class will take place....

Booked through Anbang seaside homestay. This was such fun, the trip round the market was a real eye-opener and so good having Mo explain things to us. Our course was very mixed, Swiss, New Zealand, Australia, French and ourselves from NE England. It was a busy time load of things to do and Mo took time to explain the tricks... More

I did this on my first day in Hoi An and really enjoyed it. They take you through the market to begin with (buy some Mangosteens!!) which is eye opening as it is so unlike a Western market. Then you get on a boat and you take a nice trip (about an hour) through the river and down some of... More

I have taken cooking courses all over the world, quite frankly I love to cook. My most recent class was in Rome and was by far my favorite, so I was hesitant to see if this class could top it. Not only was Mo an excellent guide, she was easy to understand and very enthusiastic. Which made it easier to... More

We choose this cooking class as it offered more. Apart from the usual shopping trip to the markets that all classes offer; you then take a boat ride to the island it is interesting & relaxing it gives you a chance to get to know your class mates, our group was only six people. Hon our guide and one of... More
