We had been given the name of the class from a friend who had already done the course and it was everything we heard it would be. We loved every second. Everything was well timed, well organised and great fun. The food itself was delicious and Mo our teacher for the day was so helpful and friendly. She taught us... More

This tour shows Vietnamese cooking that you feel you can do at home. It starts at the wonderful Hoi An markets on the river where all the produce is very fresh. Then a lovely boat ride down the river transferring to a smaller boat to reach the cooking pavilion. This was really well set up with lots of helpers and... More

Being a man, I of course expect my soon to be wife to provide food for me. This cooking class which lasted a couple of hours gives her the tools to make Vietnamese food as well! The tour of the market was both informative and fun, the boat ride to the island relaxing and the atmosphere on the island very... More

We did this tour with our 15 & 16 year old kids and we all had a fabulous time. So great to be taught by the locals with simple instructions complete with take home recipes and easy to access ingredients so you can recreate these at home. The tour starts with a visit to the local markets to buy your... More

I loved this tour and although I had been on a Hanoi street tour, it was great to experience a cooking tour on the island, go by boat and cook our own food. Nga was a wonderful guide and although it was a little hard to hear her in the busy colorful market, she was wonderful with our group and... More

We cannot recommend this tour highly enough. Our guide Nga was amazing and spoke brilliant English. We were collected by taxi from our hotel and then did the market tour. This was really informative and didn't feel rushed or scripted. Nga answered all of our questions and gave us a lot of valuable information! We then got on the boat... More

Don't hesitate to book this tour. The experience was worth the time and money. Going to the day market, the boat ride and the class was so fun!!! You learn some staple foods of Vietnam and get to take home detailed recipes in English and cooking sticks. The staff at the tour group were all so nice. Nga was my... More

We booked into the late morning tour to avoid the heat, however it wasn't a problem. We were picked up at our hotel, taken to meet the others on our tour, given cold water before setting off to the market to purchase the foods required for our menu. Our guide provided information along the way about the different herbs, vegetables,... More
