“Thuan Tinh family cooking tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Great day with a good crew however July is hot in Hoi An and I struggled with some parts of the tour in that heat. Food was good and the staff were helpful however sometimes a bit prescriptive as to how you interpret things like presentation.

“Lovely lunch experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

A great cooking class, which entails a lot more than other cooking classes we have done, you do the usual market tour, then a boat trip to the island, then a small boat trip through a water coconut plantation and then you go on tho the cooking class where you are shown how rice milk is made. The menu consists of four simple but delicious meals, the chef who doesn't speak English runs the class really well with the help of an interpreter, you never lose track of the class. A really well run cooking class.

“Great Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

We had a great day today at this cooking school. The food was some of the best we had in Vietnam. Everything was well organised and help was always at hand if you missed a step. Looking forward to replicating at home. Thanks to the team.
