I did the tour with Ánh and I had a wonderful time. I was lucky enough to be the only one who booked that morning so it was just her and me and it was like hanging out with a friend. She was so nice and helpful, she even acted as a photographer, camerawoman and hypewoman! She was also very knowledgeable, answered all my questions and shared her experiences with me. At the eco garden she named and showed me the different herbs, made me smell them, and explained how they were used in Vietnamese cuisine etc. Very interesting. She also arranged for a driver to drop me off directly at my hotel after the tour. All in all a really great half day! The food at the end of the tour was quite good too, especially the first dish.

Amazing experience. Lovely people, very welcoming and helpful and we were really looked after. So much nicer than the big group places. Fantastic cooking school too…highly recommend when in Hoi An! We had So much fun!!!!!!! Thank you :-)

Barry is the best tour guide in Hoi An. He told us many interesting things on our way to and in My Son. He took care of us and I had a wonderful time. As the cream on the top He sang great karaoke for us.

All around excellent tour. The cooking class was 10/10 so the basket boat, massage, market tour were all bonuses and equally wonderful. The guides were kind and efficient.
