We were thrilled and captivated by our guide today, the effervescent young Mo! Originally from a farm in the North and only "17-and-a-half", she's already a masterful story-teller and has a wicked wit. Always bubbling with enthusiastic insight, she guides us through a colorful journey into Vietnamese cuisine. This tour begins in the Hoi An wet markets where we don... More

This Cooking Class offers a variety of experiences for those who participate. There is a lovely trip in the morning where you purchase all of your ingredients at the Central Market. Afterwards, there are two boat rides in which you get to appreciate the nature that Hoi An and Vietnam have to offer. Some people may feel that it is... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour, started buying fresh ingredients at the wet market and rode a boat to the island. Before reaching the island, we were transferred to a smaller hand rowing boat passing those water coconut trees. It felt almost like we were going to a hidden village. We were shown how to make fresh rice milk on arrival... More

Prior to my trip to Hoi An in July I did some research and saw this cooking class/tour, honestly I thought the reviews were overplaying the class and that it probably wasn't for me. However (as it often happens) a family member dragged me along and I found myself regretting my early reluctance. The tour through the markets to buy... More

An excellent experience given by a professional staff. The guides speak good English, the market tour was simple and enjoyable. The boat ride seemed long though the views were wonderful.

We had a great time doing this tour. I love cooking so I might be a little bias. This is a beginner cooking class but I still found out some small tricks to take home. We went through fresh vegetable, wet and meat market, really interesting how the locals buy their produce and so fresh as well. This is a... More

I would absolutely recommend this class for someone who doesn't have much experience cooking this type of cuisine - the tour guide, chef and support people were super lovely and the food was really tasty. Unfortunately for those who do have a fair bit of experience, there was very little technique involved and the super helpful staff would often do... More

Had a grat day. After being picked up from our hotel, our guide "Mo" took us through a traditional fresh food market, explaining what everything was at the same time buying what we would need for our lesson. Once we had everything we would need we headed down to the river for a very enjoyable boat trip to the village... More

This proved to be a very well thought out and well rounded experience. Mo was fantastic from the time she picked us up from the hotel then proved very entertaining as she guided us through the market. It was a really enjoyable boat trip to the island by motor then row boat as we donned our nons. Each step of... More

Really enjoyed this cooking class, included trip to the market, boat trip to the island and small class size. Dishes were not difficult and recipes were given to us to replicate at home. Guide and cooking teacher were very nice.
