We unfortunately got a rainy day for our cooking course, but the first thing we got from our cook were rain capes for the market tour, which was great. The market tour was interesting, we learned about some exotic fruit/vegetables and got a closer look than we'd probably gotten on our own. The boat trip was not that exciting due... More

The tour starts with a visit to the local market to buy the ingredients that will be used for the cooking class. Then we travel by boat to the actual cooking place. I found the boat ride a bit long especially because we had to transfer to smaller boats. The chef Hon was very knowledgeable and he was also very... More

We were picked up at our hostel by the wonderful Trang, and then taken over to the central market. We had already been to the market before, but it was great having a local show us around and introduce us to herbs and vegetables we had never heard of. Next was a 45 minute boat ride to the island, where... More

This was not only a great class but good chance to visit Thuan Tina Island. Our teachers first took us to a market visit and pointed out different items. Then we took a boat 45 minutes away and got in fishing canoes to the island. We learned how to make 4 dishes, which were all excellent. I was full by... More

We wanted to do a cooking course in Hoi An and chose this one because of the rave Trip Advisor reviews. I was glad to find that they were accurate. The tour has been described in many other reviews starting with the market tour, which was really informative. I was pleased that the boat for the trip up the river... More

Loved this tour and can definitely understand it's popularity. We were collected from our hotel then escorted around the market first thing to buy all our ingredients. Following this we were seamlessly transfered to the boat that tool us to the island and then had a compressive cookery class. Our guide and our chef were great fun. The other staff... More

Just had a lovely day doing this cooking course. Really nice to get to go to the markets and on the boat trip to the cooking course on the beautiful island. The food was amazing and we made and ate it at a really good pace. The best thing about it was our guide, lovely girl named Tsuy who made... More

I booked this at 7pm the night before and they picked me up, as promised, at 8:20am the next morning from my hotel. We were in a group of 11 with the wonderful Jan - lovely young lady with excellent English and very nice manner. She gave good and clear descriptions of the food at the market - it was... More

A very professional school which is spacious and set under a huge thatched roof. Everyone has their own individual station and lessons are led by the teaching chef, in our case Mr Hon. The classes are unrushed and the teaching demonstration was clear with plenty of cooking tips given throughout the morning, and we were especially grateful that Mr Hon... More
