The food lovers' guide to Hoi An. 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.

We did this wonderful food tour our first day in Hoi An - actually our first day in Vietnam. We learned as much about culture as we did about Vietnamese cuisine and it set the tone for the rest of our time there. We walked through the beautiful back streets of the ancient town away from the touristy main drags.... More

Neville and Colleen are passionate about hoian, two Australians who have lived here for years. Both are so well respected amongst the locals and very generous with guests in sharing detailed Vietnamese culture and cuisine. Overall a wonderful learning and dining experience! Recommend doing this early on in your hoian visit.

This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Vietnam. We were a group of 11 but Neville and his staff made us all feel very welcome. On this tour we tried over 40 different foods and all were explained as to their origin, usage and tastes. We passed Neville in the street around Hoi An the following... More

Due to us visiting at the height of the busy tourist season we were unable to book a tour. However, Neville gave us a list of recommendations based on his tour. We followed his instructions and we're delighted! Their tour lead us to the BEST dining experiences we had in Vietnam during our three week trip. Hope to meet Neville... More

By the time we joined Neville we were already full. The tour was great to build knowledge and confidence of the local food. Neville's resteraunts info was good and we enjoyed... More

We went on New Years Day as that was the only day available. We toured the market with Sen and visited many small places. The ice cream at 9am was a highlight. Neville took over the group at the Family restaurant where we tried lots of dishes and Neville talked history and many other things. He can certainly talk up... More

We went on Neville's food tour the second day of our stay in Hoi An. We thoroughly enjoyed every part of it. Sen was a fantastic food guide and very knowledgable. We loved experiencing so many local cuisines. After the tour we had the confidence to explore the local eateries and try local food by ourselves. We tried out Neville's... More

Taste of Hoi An Food Tour by Neville and Sun was the highlight of our week in Hoi An. Prebook or book your first day in town, it will show the hidden food gems in Hoi An. It's a bit steep at $75pp, but worthwhile. Check out our tour review & Hoi An: http://rkwanderlust.com/2015/01/07/tasty-hoi-an/

We had a fantastic experience with Neville and his team. Not only were we exposed to a wide range of Vietnamese foods, markets, food vendors and restaurants, but we learnt so much about the culture of the Vietnamese people also. We had a great time, lots of information, and a fun commentary as well. Neville was a fascinating guide. In... More
