What people are saying about Hoi An

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.

Excellent excursion.. Really really worth the money. Everything was perfekt, the woman who teached us how to do the dishes was so sweet and the food realle good.. Really recomend this tour

Great trip, you could have saved yourself the snorkeling at this point but it was still great to jump into the water and swim :)

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