“Adorable day tour.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

After reading the reviewa here me and my husband decided to do the tour with Mr. Phuoc, and it was adorable. We went with an other couple from Germany do the market tour, where the tour guide shows us all the differents herbs, veggies, fruits, spices, etc. After we went by bike at the place he lives about 3 km from town and it eas very nice to ride through the rice fiels seeing the buffalos and ducks. The cooking school (a nice bamboo house in front of the river) is just beside Mr. Phuoc grandparents house and we get the great opportunity to be introduced to his grandfather, a war veteran of 90 years old, and his grandmother. The cooking class was very nice and we had so much fun, we ate the dishes we prepared ( the best spring rolls ever), and enjoyed a wonderful massage after lunch. Before going home we still went to see the herb garden of the comunity wich is beautiful. I highly recommend this activity for any tourist that pass Hoi An.

“Phuoc is the best :) !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

We have met Phuoc in our first day in Hoi An and I think we couldn't be more lucky. Phuoc he is a great tour organizor who will look after you if you choose him. He did organized for us a motorbike trip to My Son. It was an one of the best things we did in Vietnam, he tought us the difficult craft of motorbike ridding in this country which we will hever forget. So if you are planning visit Hoi An soon you shouldn't ask yourself what to do there but with who? And the answer is : With Phuoc! !!!! Magdalena and Leszek

“Must do tour.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

We booked the sunset tour. Foo came to pick us up at our hotel with pushbikes. There were only two of us. We rode around the fishing village and Foo explained how they fish and live. We then went through prawn farms and veggie gardens. We had a stop at the organic herb farms wher foo explained the process and what was involved. We then rode through the local village and stopped for refreshments. Foo proceeded to take us to a fishing village where they fished for anchovies. Lastly we stopped at a pottery village and FOo explained the Operation and processes used. We rode into the outskirts of hoian wher we dumped our bikes an we're taken to the hotel on motorbikes . A three hour adventure with a knowledgeable local who speaks English well for $8 pp. thanks Foo.

“Awesome cooking class with many Specials!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012 via mobile

We just did the cooking class with coconut Tours and had a wonderful Time. First we went to the local market to buy fresh Food. Then we went to a small village by bicycle. There we could See how they plant vegetables and Herbs and we could even try to water the Fields and plant ourselves. Everybody was really friendly and we had a Great Time. The cooking itself was Fun Too and we got all the receipes. At the end we got a really Nice Massage. It was definetely One of the best Things we did on our trip and i think that it was a Lot more interesting than a cooking class in the City would have been.
