Mo was absolutely fantastic. From when she picked us up she was very friendly. The cooking was also very amazing. To actually learn how to cook the local traditional food was excellent. Very efficient and lots of extra staff for any help if we needed it. Would definitely recommend tjis tour to anyone.

Great cooking class, very professional. Only 10 students maximum which made it more pleasant and personal - even with the other students. The teacher is personable and funny even if she speaks very little English. Morning starts off with the market tour as we follow our guides around selecting the ingredients we will use. I found it a bit difficult... More

There are loads of cooking classes around Hoi An, most offering a similar menu but what sets this one apart is the great boat cruise on the way to the class. First was the hotel pickup then the markets - our guide was really helpful - explaining all the ingredients & answering everyone's questions. Then was the boat trip followed... More

Everything about the trip is amazing. Starting off by wandering around the markets and picking fresh local produce to use in out cooking that day. Then a lovely boat trip to the class. We made 4 dishes and all were delicious. A must do for Foodies and non foodies alike.

This cooking tour (it's really more a tour than just a class: market, boat and cooking) was a fantastic experience, really loved it! Mo was a very nice tour guide, and the rest of the staff was also really helpful and friendly. The dishes we made were really tasty and I like the fact that we got the recipes to... More

Despite the lovely course leader's urgings I cannot give this course Five stars. It was a nice day and a pleasant overall experience, but average in my experience of cooking courses. The market tour was good, revealing some good ingredient selection techniques. However the course itself felt rushed. There were times where the presenter asked everyone to start mixing ingredients,... More

This was a fantastic experience and a highlight of our trip to Vietnam. The class includes a market tour, a relaxing and scenic boat ride to the island where the class is held, and a brilliant class filled with amazing food. The instructor was the most adorable lady I have ever seen and they constantly refilled your passion fruit juice... More

SImply amazing! The service was excellent, the food was out of this world, AND we got constant refills of the best passion fruit juice you will ever taste. It started with a nice trip through a market, followed by a relaxing boat ride to the 'kitchen'. Here we made fresh spring rolls, a crepe-like thing with shrimp and pork which... More

There are many cooking courses that can be done in Hoi An, I can't compare as this was the first & only one I've done, but as a first time participant I felt this was very good value for money. Pick up from the hotel was on time, after a short drive to Hoi An market we did a tour... More
