We really enjoyed the "Home Cooking" portion of our tour. It was our 14 year old daughters favorite part of our trip to Hanoi. Our guide and cooking instructor, Ms. Trang, was excellent. Our tour included a trip to the local market to select fresh fruits, vegetables, and meats to use in the meal. Our tour started with learning a few phrases of Vietnamese to help communicate with the sellers at the market (of course Ms. Trang was there to help). The local market experience was very fun and a great way to experience the local culture. The foods at the market were so fresh and there was so much to choose from. We then headed to the home to begin our cooking class. The home was beautiful and scenic (overlooking the river). We all had so much fun learning how to make spring rolls! The finished meal was delicious and included appetizers, main courses, desert, and drinks. We really enjoyed the dinner and the overall experience. I highly recommend the Home Cooking Hanoi experience. We loved it!

Highly recommended if you have a couple hours of free time while you in Hanoi and wants to experience home cooking. we did the morning class, our guide plus chef Trang was excellent. The language lesson at the start of the class and the trip to the local market was great fun!!

We booked a city tour of Hanoi with Awesome Travel a few days before our holiday and noticed they were offering a trip to a Restaurant also. We were pleasantly surprised to find ourselves picking up Mr Anh and being taken to his Mansion house restaurant, Scenic View.. Mr Anh and his family offer cooking classes, overnight stays and meals in their beautiful riverside location. We were the only guests that evening and were served huge quantities of delicious food and drinks. Mr Anh joined us and we spent a happy hour or so chatting about his life and work. We would recommend this for excellent food and a unique friendly experience

Awesome Travel made our trip to Hanoi fun. Without this experience we would have missed out. I recommend the cooking class, scooter ride and restaurant walk, we did all three. The tour guides were wonderful young people with lots of positive energy and smiles. The price was reasonable. It was the best time we ever had. My friends loved the photos I posted and they all felt they were on the vacation with me. I am sure they will be headed to Hanoi and Awesome Travel as soon as possible.

I had a wonderful day not only learning about Vietnamese food, but also about the language and culture. Our wonderful guide helped with a relaxed and casual atmosphere. Despite not being the best cook our guide was very patient and we were all astonished by the result of a day's hard work. The day ended with a relaxed dinner in a beautiful setting at the river.
