“Perfect introduction to food in Hoi An”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

This tour will allow you to try an enormous amount of food and learn all about it as you go. Neville has great passion for food and this shows during the tour. This is a good tour to do early in your trip if possible.

“Yummy food”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Had a nice day, started with buying food in the markets, then a boat trip up the river then transferred to a smaller boat and paddled throw the water coconuts, then it was a short walk to the cooking school where we cooked Four Vietnamese dishers, which we got to eat.. A good day was had.

“What an experience”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Neville's food tour has to be one of the better experiences that we have had during our travels. What a wonderful learning experience and one not to be missed. The passion of Neville and his team is contagious. They give you the confidence to experience things that you would not have had the confidence to experience by yourself, let alone know where to go and what to try. And importantly they are doing what they can to contribute to the sustainability of the local community. It is best to do the tour early during your visit to Hio An, so that you can capitalise on what you have learned and therefore experience a side of Vietnam that is fascinating, engaging and most of all real. The food is fantastic, the people are wonderful and Neville is just so entertaining and knowlegeable. I recommend it highly.
