We booked the class via our hotel and where picked up from our hotel with a little delay. Our tour guide welcomed us very friendly and explained the further proceeding. His English was good, however sometimes difficult to understand due to the noise around (especially on the market and on the boat). We first went to the market and bought... More

We booked this through our home stay (Magnolia). We were collected by taxi and taken to the market to buy the ingredients for our class. Nga was lovely and very informative. We then went on a boat on the river to the venue for our cooking class. We had a wonderful time and learnt a lot. It was very hands... More

We did the cooking class very close to Tet, and were lucky that they were open and also that they put on a class especially for us as their others were booked out! We had an absolute blast. Starting off with the market shop, then a relaxing boat trip to the cooking class. The class had the perfect amount of... More

We booked the morning tour (pick up 815 at the hotel). Our guide (Nga) was lovely, fun, entertaining and spoke good English. The whole tour is a great experience. The small group goes to the nearby market to buy ingredients. Get an opportunity to ask all about herbs and spices sold in the market. Boat trip to a small village.... More

Booked this tour through my homestay (Green Grass homestay) and the recommendation of 2 friends. Turned out to be one of the highlights of my trip! They pick you up in your hotel, and after buying together the ingredients in the local market, they take you to the island to cook. Once there, you have your own equipment to cook... More

We were picked up right on schedule at 8:15 for a trip to the market where we bought a few of the ingredients we'd be cooking with that morning. After a boat ride we arrived at a house on the river where we could see how rice milk is made. Soon after that we were going down the river on... More

Although we didn't take part in the tour and only took the cooking class, it was really cool! A taxi with a staff member picked us up at our hotel and we cooked our own food and it tasted awesome! 4 dishes in about 3 hours, really worth a visit!
