Owner description: 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.

This was a great food tour of Hoi An. We did the walking one, which meal-wise isn't the best time for what you eat (it started at 8 am), but still a good choice. On the tour you stop at some of the best food in town and get to see areas you would have never seen. The only thing... More

This tour is by far the most exciting and informative aspect of our trip to Vietnam. Neville is incredibly engaging and knowledgable about the Vietnamese food. He has such a strong passion for the locals and their culture. We couldn't believe we were about to taste 42 different Vietnamese dishes, all before lunch time! The tour guides during the walking...

Just finished this tour an hour or so ago, and am hard-pressed to fault it. Well-organised, seamless walk through Hoi An with food just magically appearing wherever we went. Personable local guide with fine English took us through the streets and market, before we stopped at the Family Restaurant for a few hours with Neville, a highly intelligent and knowledgeable...

My sister and I and my 10 year old did this tour on the first day of our week-long stay in Hoi An. Great choice. Neville is engaging and entertaining, knowledgeable and respectful of the Vietnamese people and their culture. We tried all sorts of foods that we wouldn't have had a hope of finding, let alone trying. He was... More

Having a 9 and 6 year old in tow I was a little worried it may not be the ideal tour for them.....how wrong I was!!! Neville does a great job at keeping them entertained and engaged, most importantly learning about and keen to try the abundance of food on offer. Both children are very proud of their "food Ledgends"... More

This tour was highly recommended by fellow Australians staying at our Hotel in Da Nang and it didn’t disappoint. Excellent commentary and knowledge, food and a brief but in depth glimpse into local cuisine and traditions for us who only had 4 days in the area. The operators Neville, Colleen and Sen along with their regular locals you will meet... More

We had already tried food from a few local street venders but without Neville's amazing tour there are SO MANY foods that you would never find yourself. Neville is a great character and obviously loves the Vietnamese culture and cuisine with a passion. This combination makes for a great tour and a 100% full stomach. Highly reccommend!

Take the advice and DO NOT EAT before this tour. Even just having a mouthful of each of the dishes and I was stuffed by the end. The walk through the market answers so many questions about what the different fruits and veg we had been seeing plus provides tasty insights to street food but things get serious at the... More

Wow, what a gem of a resource Neville is and what a great experience this tour is. This is a must do and the earlier in your stay in Hoi An the better. Over the 4 hours plus you will be introduced to a wide variety of people, restaurants and food. Neville is so incredibly enthusiastic about the food, people... More
