This is a great experience
Anna_B, Aug 2019
Done a couple of cooking tours, but this one was even better as it had a bit of everything. We did the morning tour and after a pick up at our hotel we first walked around the markets and our guide Nhu explained everything we didn't know. We then got on a boat and did a trip up the river, then got on a bamboo boat for a quick row (and our rower and my husband tried to beat the others to shore!!). Next a quick buffalo cart ride and photos on the buffalo if you wanted. Once at Sabirama we were treated to a foot massage, then into the cooking. We did 4 courses in total, and they were all tasty and fun to make. I was very proud of my tomato rose :) . Our guide Nhu made the day lots of fun - thank you - and I would recommend this tour to anyone with half a day free in Hoi An.

This was the most interesting and fun-filled attractions and one of the best highlights of my trip to Hoi An. The host was extremely knowledgeable and explained everything in great detail. There is much more to this cooking tour than meets the eye. The market tour, the boat trip, the basket boat ride, the buffalo ride and foot massage were great fun. Had a wonderful time.

Great way to spend half a day in Hoi An. We did so much in few hours, which includes visiting Hoi An's local market, ride a boat in Thu Bon river, got onto the basket boat for a short trip,short buffalo ride, massage, learnt some cooking skills, ate lunch, made a few friends and had fun! Our guide, Ms Nhu is very friendly and fun. She gave us all the attention we needed, making sure we are okay and having fun throughout the day. It is definitely value for money for this package with their excellent services.

This is a truly fantastic experience! My entire family had a great time. Our guide was so kind and knowledgeable. We started at the market where we got to see first hand where the ingredients for the the meal comes from. These open markets are really a sight and should not be overlooked when visiting Vietnam. Then we took a 45 minute boat ride up the river. The boat driver let each of my children drive the boat. They thought it was great. Then we transferred to basket boats for a short ride to shore. From there we took a buffalo cart to the restaurant / cooking class location. The head chef is hilarious. All the staff are helpful and kind. My kids are 13, 10, and 9, and they got to cook their own meals just like the adults. They catered to my vegetarian children's needs and really went above and beyond to make it a fantastic day for us. It was a day full of DELICIOUS food and a lot of laughter. Definitely a must-do in Hoi An!

Prompt pickup from hotel. Had so much fun walking thru the market and sampling different products. Even bought delicious coconut cookies. Basket boat ride was great! Thoroughly enjoyed the buffalo cart ride. I love animals and our water buffalo was loved and well-cared for. The foot massage was a welcome treat. The hot water foot soak with lemongrass and guava leaves refreshing. The cooking class was fun. With only four people in our class, it went quickly. Each of us tried hands-on making salad, spring rolls, stir-fried chicken. Would definitely recommend this tour.

This was a really great experience. The market tour was relatively short because it was extremely hot outside, but we appreciated our guide realizing the need for this. The two boat rides and ox cart ride really were very fun additions to the day and made this experience unique. The cooking class portion was good and the food very tasty. I would recommend this trip, it really had many unique aspects that made the day special.

A jam packed experience with truly delicious food. Our 3 children 6,8,10 were able to join in as they had lovely helpers and when they tired of it they played happily nearby. There is a little bit of upselling at a few stages, but nothing major. The basket boats and river boat ride were the kids' highlights, ours was the food. If you are a small eater in hot weather...don't eat breakfast so you can fit it all in. Catered very well for the vegetarian in our group of 8. I'll definitely be making the salad when I get home when I can find a green mango!.

Our Sabirama cooking class was delightful. We enjoyed our journey to get to the cooking class and then a very pleasant time learning to make four different things. We also got to sample our culinary dishes. Our tour guide and chef were delightful to work with and very helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would highly recommend you try it.
