I have participated in cooking classes across the world, and this is the best! Fantastic local guide who spoke English exceptionally well. Took us through the local markets where he bought the food we would cook later. Boat ride along the river, than onto canoes for the short journey through the water coconut trees. Arrived at the kitchen, so well... More

Very good tour through the market. Our guide Trang was very knowledgeable and honest. The class was exactly what we were looking for. Dishes were all delicious and relatively simple. We learned lots and recommend as a must do in Hoi An.

This tour has to be one of the best tours I have ever done...!! Hotel pickup and then drop off with a fluent english speaking guide to the local market which is almost totally unspoilt by any form of tourism (for now!!), all the different ingredients for our food purchased on the spot there into our little shopping baskets, and...

What a cool day! From the interactive market experience to the journey to the island to the awesome cooking class, the day was perfect. The food was the highlight and everyone learned great Vietnamese cooking skills. My fiancée and I loved it. We made four great dishes that we will definitely make back home. It was fun and neat while... More

We choose this cooking course on a recommendation by the hotel and was not dissapointed. Started the day early at the central market and shopped for our produce which was really eye opening and a lot of fun, then a cooling boat ride down the river for about 44 mins to the island where you get to watch how they...

We were promptly picked up from our hotel and greeted with a lovely welcome from Hon, our tour guide. The market was brilliant - such great photo opportunities and a wonderful experience. Hon was brilliant and talked us through all the ingredients which was both interesting and educational. The boat ride was nice, and we particularly loved the rowing boat... More

Booked this tour through my hostel. For whatever reason I was picked up a bit late, so I wasn't there for the beginning parts of the market tour. It was fine in the end though--it was still fun to meander through the markets and we were lucky enough to catch a boat race on the way to Thuan Tinh Island.... More

I went on the Cooking School with my family, a great day out, in a tranquil setting and lovely staff. We were collect from the hotel by taxi in the morning by our lovely guide who spoke excellent English. We then went round the local market getting out ingredients for the day. A fascinating experience as she explained about all... More

Many reviews here have captured this activity correctly, it's a very nice course in a relaxing environment. We looked at others, including Ms Vy's Morning Glory restaurant (see separate review), which did look nice, but we loved the menu for this course. The clincher was also that you have your own cooking station and all get to prepare and cook... More
