It was rainy day, but director of office Happy Day made it memorable. Go by bicycle, see around the local life and have dinner in a family. Very nice day.

Considering that I hate cooking and I get seasick I can honestly say I was skeptical about our cooking tour, but I went along with our family of seven and had an awesome time. Our tour guide Hue picked us up and took us to the market to by our supplies, then we got on a boat and got taken to the kitchen facilities. We spent the morning cooking 4 main dishes with our adorable chef Ti. She was very friendly and hilarious. Even those who can't distinguish between a shallot and a bean sprout will have no problem whipping up these vietnamese dishes with ease. With fantastic facilities, lovely staff and an endless supply of passion fruit juice, this is a tour I'd recomend to everyone and for 30AUD it's very reasonable. A special mention of our wonderful guide Hue, she is a real asset to the company.

Tour took us to visit the main point on the island: visit the farm on boat along the river. Interesting to see them control the boat with their feet. The cooking section was amazing. We had fun moments. Recipes were all very nice and we were given a printed copy of every recipe we made to take home. The staff were all very friendly!

After reading some reviews, I took the riverboat to this island and was surprised to see the facility in a rundown state. It looked as if the people who operates it still have hopes of its former glory days to come back. Maybe that day will come cause if it does then only will this place be given better rating

A great trip with a cooking experience on the side. The trip to the local food market was interesting and informative - great to buy the food you later cooked. Boat trip was very pleasant and an interesting walk around the island before cooking. We saw the traditional method of separating rice husk from the grains, making rice milk, and a little canoe ride to the village with a drink and rice crackers in a village home.
Cooking class was basic but fun and we enjoyed the food and had too much lunch and too many passionfruit juices!! Must do if you have a spare day in Hoi An.
