Our guide, Ann, was excellent. She was very informative and did a good job of narrating to us throughout the market visit and the cooking class.

This was a fantastic experience. The guide explained many aspects of Vietnamese cooking and he made shopping for the ingredients in the market fun. It was lovely to go to someone's home where we were made very welcome. The cookery class was real 'hands on', including chopping all ingredients for lovely salads, meat for spring rolls and preparing fish. The guide and the cook worked really hard and the food was delicious and very filling!

We were only in Vietnam a few days and despite generally avoiding tours we decided we wanted to do a home based cooking class to see another side of Vietnam.

It couldn't have been any better, a great guide, driver and host/cook. The meal was amazing and all the better for being involved in the preparation, we got a real appreciation for what makes Vietnamese home cooking different to what is offered in the restaurants.

Would highly recommend this tour and Hoi An Express overall.

Great experience learning to cook Vietnamese food in a comfortable kitchen. Before we reached the house the guide showed us the market. He also took us to a store where we could get good quality coffee beans - this was not part of the package but he obliged!

This was fastastic. I loved every minute of it. I was lucky enough to do this on my own and was treated really well. I had fun at the local market seeing all the amazing fresh ingredients and was then taken to a beautiful house with a fantastic kitchen to help cook lunch. I would thoroughly recommend this tour I even got to go back to my hotel on the back of a motor scooter.

We thoroughly enjoyed the home cooking class. We especially appreciated the efforts of Hanh in selecting food items at the market, including us in the cooking class, preparing such a fantastic meal and sharing her beautiful home (what a kitchen) with us. The flavours were outstanding. We also appreciated the efforts of our tour guide both for his hospitality to us and his kitchen work. Plenty of food.
