Owner description: We share Hoi An’s best kept food secrets. The Ancient Town of Hoi An is just bursting with interesting and delicious Vietnamese dishes each with its own unique cultural profile; however for one reason or another much of this food remains anonymous and many visitors miss the opportunity to experience this tantalizing world of unique flavors. The aim of our tour is to provide an opportunity to unlock your adventurous culinary spirit and experience the epicurean delights of Hoi An.

Such a fun tour! Hoi An is a beautiful small town and you get the real feeling of the community with this tour. The people we met along the way was a highlight for us and of course the food was amazing. Neville... It was such a pleasure to meet you and congratulations on developing such a fantastic experience in Hoi An.

it's all been said by other reviews... and it's all true....an amazing experience of vietnamese life, and food.. do the tour early then have fun being more menu-adventerous the rest of your stay.
but WARNING : don't eat breakfast beforehand ! A master raconteur, Neville is able to enthusiastically teach and entertain for the 5 hours strolling through markets/street stalls/and restaurants ..... very popular, so need to book in advance, and ideal to do early in the trip if you can... good value for money.

Even in heavely rain, this tour was amazing.
The tour is guidet by Neville, an Australien man and even thoug he is living of this, he's so entertaining, and a very good storyteller.
If you are going to Vietnam, be sure to make your trip to stop over i Hoi An for minimum 2 nights, and join this tour. Book in advance. www.tasteofhoian.com

We took the Taste of Hoi An Food Tour while in Hoi An a couple of weeks ago. Its much much more than the title implies. You get a walking tour of the locals part of the city, a history lesson, get to meet many local colorful characters. Neville himself is a treat !! He really keeps things going. The tasting from local stands we did we would never done on our own. What wonderful food. Our 11 year old loved every minute of it and tasted very last dish !!! This one tour was the highlight of our three week trip to Asia. Not to be missed !!

I'd almost say best day in Vietnam! The rest of these reviews are spot on, this tour is a must for food lovers (like ourselves), fans of the Vietnamese cuisine or anyone wanting to find out more about Vietnamese food and culture. Don't think of this tour as just an eating experience, it's much more. Food is an intrinsic part of Vietnamese culture and life and through Neville and Sens passion for food and this country they provide an interesting and insightful look at Vietnam. I am a little fussier than your average foodie, and not a fan of shrimp/prawns (sinful when it comes to Vietnamese cuisine!) but the team were very accommodating and I always had a shrimp free option prepared so if you have any likes/dislikes share them with Sen and the team.
