    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!

An amazing day! We loved the coconut boats and the fishing with the locals. The food for early dinner was delicious and plenty to share! We had a lovely tour guide and thoroughly enjoyed the day- a great day trip from Hoi An, with a variety of things that kept the day interesting

Excellent tour! We loved the entire day, the boat rides, the locals and of course the cooking class was top notch!

I was able to spend a very meaningful time. And it was delicious! Recommended!
