Our tour is in two parts: firstly we take guests on a walking tour of the markets and streets meeting the local producers and vendors; we then invite guests back to our private air-conditioned dining room in the Ancient Town to taste carefully chosen examples of this food bought directly from the producers - most of whom we see or meet on the tour. The idea behind our tour is simple:in Hoi An there are around 120 restaurants catering to visitors with another 400 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

We were recommended to do this tour by our daughter and we were not disappointed. It far exceeded our expectations. So much so, that the next day we recommended it to fellow travellers. The tour was informative and great fun. Neville loves what he does and is very enthusiastic about Vietnam, both the people, food and way of life. We... More

What a gem of a man Neville is. If you want to see a man that has serious passion for what he does you must do this tour. His knowledge of the local treats is fantastic and interesting. One word of advice is DO Not have any food before you go on the tour.

Great experience to do the tour with Neville and the girls ( sorry I can not remember their names). He taught us what there is to eat and drink as well as where to eat. He made eating from "the streets" look so easy we did it by ourselves without being disappointed ( or being sick, as some people have... More

This tour should be compulsory for all first time travelers to Vietnam. Neville is extremely knowledgeable about food and culture in Vietnam, specifically in Hoi An. All that he knows has been taught and confirmed by local people who are also heavily involved in this tour (tour director, food manager, etc are all positions filled by local people). Neville is...

The biggest issue is that you are paying Australian prices for an Australian led tour in Vietnam – when a Vietnamese option would be cheaper and at least as authentic. While the tour was interesting and we did get to try a few of the local foods, it was hard to see where we were getting value for money. I... More

We did Neville's food tour August 2013. 2014 we travelled with a group of 12 and had a private tour with Neville. The booking was messed up and Neville didn't turn up in the morning but after calling him he was so apologetic and put a different tour on at 2:30pm ending up at Tuyet restaurant at An Bang Beach....

Thanks Neville from Zev the food tour legend and family! YOU are a legend and this was WAY better than any other food tour we have done. Your knowledge, passion for Vietnam, cultural tips and stories made the 5 hours fly by, to say nothing of the amazing array of tastes and sensations all off the street that we would... More

Our group of 8 (4 adults and 4 children) did this Food Walking tour on our recent trip to Hoi An. Neville was very knowledgeable and ensured we all had a great time.
