    Good program for the whole family.

    Basket boat and crab fishing should be exciting for children. Unfortunately, our group was all adults above 40, so it didn't appeal to us as much. Would have been better if the crabs we caught were the large edible types, rather than these tiny ones. But all of us were interested in cooking and eating, so the market trip and cooking class was great. The chef, Tim, being familiar with all kinds of food from his past work in hotels, came up with his own recipes. It's so delicious, this will be the first time I'm determined to try it at home after a cooking class. The key difference was that the ingredients were more manageable in my home country, and the steps were not too involved.
    It was so real!

    We’re invited into the chef’s home. It was very authentic. Varied dishes. All delicious. Child friendly

    Small group cooking class was a real pleasure. Good guidance to prepare tasty lunchtime dishes from the chef; a nice sheltered outdoor venue at the riverside. Ms Kim was a very enthusiastic guide to the marketplace. The bamboo boat ride was a unique and fun experience- so many boats taking locals out on the water.
    Really good tour

    A really good tour - family run (no biking required). Recipes all different from a previous cooking class incl a fabulous peanut sauce (recipes already received). Only downer was it poured rain just as the basket boat trip happened (umbrellas provided) !!!! BTB pickup van was a bit worn out but still got us from A to B.

    Market, eco cooking and basket boat tour
    24gerrie, Oct 2019
    We were very happy with our tour. A jovial, helpful and knowledgeable guide met us. After a trip to the market to buy fresh produce we met our chefs, they obviously had a high standard of expertise and a passion for cooking a d sharing theeir love of it. We enjoyed the unique boat ride, throwing back the crabs we caught. All staff were professional and personable. I had experienced a cooking tour prior to this with another organisation that was no where near as good. I can highly recommend this tour.
