We had an incredible time! Tom was a beautiful guide with great humour and knowledge. There was no question he couldn’t answer. He was also super patient and understanding :) The tour was intimate and personalised, we tried a lot of local cuisine and experiences we wouldn’t have known to try. Tom also explained the history and significance behind the food and traditions. We cannot rate this highly enough!

Great value for money, three course meal provided, and our guide was very friendly and informative. Easy to replicate recipes and she even gave us the recipes afterwards! Basket boats were really fun and while we got to see what the party boats were like, we also went to a more secluded area and we were able to fish for crabs! Highly recommend

Duy was excellent at showing us the gorgeous sights and deep history of the Hoi An Ancient Town. He even taught us how the Vietnamese language is spoken and gave us Vietnamese names which symbolises our beliefs. We highly recommend the Walking Tour for a next level understanding of the this beautiful city.

Jackie was very friendly and outgoing, happy to make us discover the true Vietnamese way of life. She suggested many amazing local attractions and shared with us a lot of very cool anecdotes about life in Vietnam. Fully recommend this experience and this guide as a good introduction to the city.

Very nice and educational day. We cooked great food, were well received by a pleasant and knowledgeable teacher. 10/10. recommend for anyone going to Hoi An.
