The activity was definitely great. My guide, Ân, was so nice. He picked me up at the hotel in the morning, we went around some interesting places in the city and then headed up to Auntie's home. The place is so cool and authentic and the ladies were kind and welcoming. Since they don't speak English, Ân explained and translated me everything & in detail. After having some iced tea and a few minutes rest (while teaching me some vietnamese words), he took me to the traditional market. This was so a highlight for me. People were smiling and being so nice. Then we went back to the house and started with the cooking. All dishes were well explained and delicious. I recommend this tour to everyone who wants to live an authentic experience in Vietnam.
