My partner and I and our two teenage kids did this cooking tour in January and loved it. The market was an eye opener and the cooking lesson was thoroughly entertaining and informative. Our cook was hilarious. Highly recommend this tour when visiting Hoi An.

Mo explained all the vegetables, herbs and meats we would be using and the reasons for using the different cuts of meat. We then travelled by boat to Thuan Tinh island and made 4 dishes in... More

This was a great day out. We started in the market with our guide, Hien, showing us all the different foods. We then went on a pleasant boat ride and then the cooking class which was tons of fun and utterly delicious. They catered especially for me as a vegetarian, and I made some delicious dishes using alternatives to the... More

We were told all about the ingredients and their origins by our translator. We then took a cruise up the river to our destination where we each had our... More

Her English was excellent.. A short boat ride to the island where the facilities are excellent. The island itself is very tranquil. Mo and her team of ladies..... More

As with most of the reviews given, I have to agree that this cooking class is a must & a great insight into Vietnamese food. Even if your not that into cooking, as a couple of our group members, it was informative & a lot of fun was had by all.

We had a fantastic day on the cooking tour. Our tour guide Nga was fantastic in the central market describing a lot of local ingredients not just what we purchase. We really enjoyed the boat ride and small boat to the cooking destination. The class, and kitchen, are a very efficient and professional operation. Everyone was very accommodating to our... More

I did this cooking tour almost two years ago and this time brought a friend who is a real foodie. The class was again absolutely fantastic and the team are a very 'well oiled machine.'
