Wonderful varied experience. Start with hotel pick up and visit to market to buy food to be used in cooking. Guide Hon gave good explanations of various " strange and unusual foods" and we carried baskets of the food he bought. On to a boat( 11 of us) and about 30 minutes interesting ride up the river.Transfer to 2 small... More

This was one of the best things we did in Vietnam. The market shopping was informative, the boat trips relaxing and beautiful and the cooking class was very enjoyable and a great experience for the family. Our teenage boys love it! The whole day was well organised and the food was amazing. I thoroughly recoommend!

This tour is an absolute must for cook-lovers. We were on the 11.30 am tour which ended on 5.30 pm, real good value for money. We made some excellent food, our tour guide Mo explained us everything during a visit at the local market and the chef gave a really nice cooking class. The boat trip is also very nice.... More

We loved our cooking class here as it was so well organised and efficient. We started at the market where we got to see and learn about a lot of different foods. We then took a boat to the venue through the most magical setting of water palm trees. We got to see rice milk being made and then we... More

What a great day of culinary learning with our fabulous host and teacher Mo! We have done a few cooking classes in Laos and Chiang Mai but this one is clearly better and more enjoyable! Our 2 daughters , 8-10, were trusted to have their own stations and could do all the recipes by themselves. The market tour was interesting,(... More

We were thrilled and captivated by our guide today, the effervescent young Mo! Originally from a farm in the North and only "17-and-a-half", she's already a masterful story-teller and has a wicked wit. Always bubbling with enthusiastic insight, she guides us through a colorful journey into Vietnamese cuisine. This tour begins in the Hoi An wet markets where we don... More

This Cooking Class offers a variety of experiences for those who participate. There is a lovely trip in the morning where you purchase all of your ingredients at the Central Market. Afterwards, there are two boat rides in which you get to appreciate the nature that Hoi An and Vietnam have to offer. Some people may feel that it is... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour, started buying fresh ingredients at the wet market and rode a boat to the island. Before reaching the island, we were transferred to a smaller hand rowing boat passing those water coconut trees. It felt almost like we were going to a hidden village. We were shown how to make fresh rice milk on arrival... More
