The idea behind our tour is simple:in Hoi An there are around 350 restaurants catering to visitors with another 500 or so vendors and eating establishments catering to locals with foods that don’t usually appear on visitor menus. This is the food of the local Hoi An people - some call it street food - many with recipes passed down from generation to generation. Our tour gives visitors a safe opportunity to try these foods – we ensure the food is handled hygienically and provide a comfortable venue for the tastings. « less

This is a must do if you are spending time in Hoi An... Neville was a fantastic host, quite a character and the whole operation was organised brilliantly. The people we met, the foods we tasted meant for a truly unforgettable experience, with many memories we will treasure and relive.... we really enjoyed the market areas. It's a whole different...

We had so much fun doing this tour - it really was a Vietnam highlight. Neville (now there is a man who enjoys his job!!) and the team are such great hosts and the tour runs like clockwork. We tried an immense variety of food as we weaved through little streets and lane-ways - we particularly enjoyed the market area... More

I was told about Neville's food tour by my sister and she said if nothing else you MUST do the Original Taste of Hoi An food walk. Having just finished the tour with my cousin I can tell you that neither of us were disappointed. Neville was interesting, entertaining and super friendly. He picked us up on time. He immersed...

We just finished a great walking tour in Hoi An with the very knowledgeable Neville and his team of advisors! What great way to taste the local cuisine and see the sites. We can highly recommend this tour not only for the food but also for the wealth of information provided. It is definitely best to do this very early... More

I decided to take my teenage daughters to Vietnam and open their minds on food and life. I contacted Neville by mail and we set up a tour on our first day, so we would know where to eat and what to choose on menus. we were not dissapointed at all, yes, we were full, but the portions are small...

Neville and the team were fantastic. What a well organised tour, we learnt so much and tried food we would never have tasted if we hadn't ventured on the tour. Neville is a very special man, his love of the country, it's people and their food is clear for all to see. He has the most wonderful sense of humour... More

Never eaten so much in one day! Neville gave us a great grounding in both Vietnam culture and also got over any hang ups we might have had about street food (we only ate in Vietnamese-local friendly places the whole time in Vietnam and feasted like kings for pennies, with not a single grumbling tummy). At the time we didn’t... More

The best thing we have done ! So informative and fun. Try and do it the first day, as you will gain so much information to make your stay more enjoyable ( and cheap!). It is quite difficult to book, so email neville well in advance.
