This was really interesting, we had a tour guide called Trang. She brought us first to the markets to buy the food we were going to use on the cooking trip and explained very well about all the products and often how best to use them. Then we got on a boat that brought us across the bay, then onto... More

My sister and I did this cooking class in April and had a great day. Mo lead us around the market gathering the supplies we would require for day and learning about the ingredients. After shopping we travelled by boat to Thuan Tinh Island and proceeded to the cooking school. Mo demonstrated the dishes which we tried to replicate. All... More

This was such a great day. Morning starts with a proper market tour followed by a great boat trip on 2 separate boats gives the impression that you are heading into a remote Island when in fact you are only a short taxi ride home. Hon our chef was excellent, English was excellent and very experienced at teaching and cooking.... More

This cooking class was awesome! They took us through the fresh food markets to get all of our ingredients, then travelled by boat to Thuan Tinh Island. Spent the day cooking, we were shown 4 different dishes, all very easy and delicious! Staff were so helpful, definitely one of the best things to do in Hoi An!!

Very cool experience to walk through the market and see all of the meats being cut and veggies being picked We then took a scenic boat ride along the river to our cooking class.... More

My wife and I took this cooking tour and it was one of the highlights of our honeymoon. Transport is arranged as part of the package; we were collected from our guest house in the morning by car, enjoyed an extended boat ride from the market to the cooking area and then dropped off by car in the afternoon. The... More

We booked last minute for the cooking tour in the morning, and I was pleasantly surprised that they were able to cater to me being vegetarian for the dishes. The day starts with a walk around the markets, which are hectic, but it's exciting to see how the locals do business. Then there is the 45 minute boat ride to... More

This was fun from beginning to end. The markets were amazing and the boat trip very scenic and relaxing. To be able to learn to cook such amazing dishes was wonderful and even my husband who is 83 and not much of a cook managed and produced some masterpieces! We were thoroughly impressed by the professionalism and care shown by... More

If you love Vietnamese food and have wanted to know how to cook these special dishes, than you have to do this tour. Our daughters (11 & 13) also loved this tour.
