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 was one of the highlights of my trip in Vietnam! Neville's tour, from start to finish, was engaging, interesting and such fun! It's a great opportunity to step away from the tourist trail and see another side of Hoi An, whilst also learning about the Vietnamese way of life. You'll also get to try so many different foods (do... More

What a fun, belly filling, knowledge gaining 5 hour tour. Do what Neville says and you will be fine, eat breakfast before you go on the tour and you will be sorry! If you don't do this tour you will be left wondering what all these foods are on the side of the streets, what you can eat and what... More

This was one of our favourite things in Vietnam. Neville is an entertaining and gregarious guide who has clearly integrated himself into the local Hoi An culture. He has founded the tour around the principal of supporting local vendors. He also seems to have the tour set up in such a way that if he ever stops doing it, the... More

Neville is a character, just a wonderful guy. His staff is great too. If you're at all interested in Vietnamese food (with emphasis on Hoi An specialties), stop reading reviews and book this tour! You won't have another food tour experience like this. Also, give everything a try at least once. Even the things that look or sound a little... More

Loved the tour Neville gives. Great insight to the culture as well as the street food. Very very interesting. So many examples of Vietnamese traditional foods given, and it was just great. We were so pleased we did it. A tour not to be missed.

We only found Neville and his food tour at the end of our 8 day holiday in Hoi An and wish we had done this at the beginning. Then we would have been eating and drinking all the delicious local food on offer, in the restaurants and at the roadside stalls. You need to book, and you are asked to... More

My husband and our 11 year old daughter spent yesterday morning on Neville's fabulous food tour of Hoi An, and enjoyed every minute of it. Neville went out of his way to ensure our daughter enjoyed herself too, and encouraged her to try as many new foods as possible - she was a certified 'Food Legend' by the end of... More
