Picked us up at our hotel and dropped us off in Hoi An whee we met our chef and tour guide. Had sometime to shop through the local market (and we were able to buy a few things too). The boat ride and bamboo boat were such a fun little treat. Our tour guide was so friendly and spoke amazing English! And the food, WOW. Delicious. We made apron rolls, beef pho, Chicken curry and and papaya salad.:: we even got the recipes to try to make at home. A wonderful way to spend half the day in hoi an and enjoy some culture!
Spring was a great guide with fantastic clear English. It was a little difficult to hear what was being said around the market because of the bustle and size of the group. My daughter (11) and I had a great day. To travel to the course by boat was nice and the bamboo boats were a fun thing to do with my daughter. We caught 7 crabs! The cooking course was hands on which was brilliant. I liked that you ate each course as it was cooked rather than everything at the end. An enjoyable day and highly recommend.
I had a great experience on this tour, from the market visit, to the bamboo boat ride & of course the cooking lesson. Our guide was very helpful & full of useful information, even sharing the locations of her favourite restaurants to try cao Lau, bahn mi etc. The cooking lesson was good and we were given a copy of the recipes to take with us. I will definitely cook them again at home, although I may have to adapt them slightly if I can't find rice paper easily!
pick up and drop off. quick market visit to buy supplies and discuss items. the round boat ride, though short in distance, was excellent. the paddlers had a lot of fun showing us how they would spin and manoeuvre. the cooking was great, very inclusive and hands on, the food was delicious and we left with the recipe's.
Excellent tour! We loved the entire day, the boat rides, the locals and of course the cooking class was top notch!
