Great day!
Mar 2020 • Couples
We have had a really fun day with this tour. Hong is a great chef with a lot of knowledge about the Vietnamese cuisine. She was really enthousiastic and supported us to pick our own herbs and vegetables from the garden. Huy was our guide for the tunnels. He was also great and told us a lot of interesting stuff about the Vietnamese war.

Lots of fun
We really enjoyed the cooking class today! It was great to learn about all the different uses for the produce we were cooking with. The dishes are easy enough for us to recreate at home and are delicious!

So good that I want to do it again!
Feb 2020 • Couples
My husband and I booked a flight to Ho Chi Minh city specifically for this experience. So, you can imagine our expectations were quite high ;) Luckily, our guide and chef Huy managed to exceed all of them. The day was intense but we didn’t feel rushed at any point. The cooking class was 100% hands on (which is a big advantage compared to other cooking classes we attended), and the food was simply delicious.
After lunch we went to visit the Cu Chi tunnels where we learned a lot about the creativity of Vietnamese soldiers during the war. And yet again, Huy proved to be extremely knowledgeable and helpful.

Our overall rating is 10 out of 5! We strongly recommend joining these guys in the future!

My fiancé and I did this tour with the amazing Rose. Our guide Rose was super nice and had so much interesting knowledge about Vietnamese food, plants, and the tunnel system in the war.

Highly recommend! Thank you Rose for a lovely day, and to chef Tan also.

Great Cooking Class and Tour!!
This class was show much fun. Thank you to my cooking instructor and tour guide, Huy. He was awesome and so kind. It was a great experience to pick herbs on the farm and then use them later on in the class. Food was really tasty! And then to finish the day at the Ci Ci tunnels was a perfect compliment to the location and they very near. Excellent experience and absolutely great value!

Fun and very well organised day
We thoroughly enjoyed the cooking class. It was fun picking and then cooking (and eating) your own ingredients. The tutor was very personable and the class well organised and run. We combined the class with a tour of Cu Chi tunnels which are only 20 minutes from the cooking class venue. Overall had a great day.

Fun Day-Trip Outside Saigon
Dec 2019 • Solo
Terrific full-day tour of the agricultural village garden, fun cooking class, and then insightful and informative tour of the Cu Chi Tunnels. This was a great day trip outside of Ho Chi Minh City.

We were picked up in a very comfortable vehicle and it’s about an hour drive to and from Ho Chi Minh City center. Learning about local plants at the garden was a highlight. I also loved learning about the Cu Chi Tunnels and felt the tour added value I wouldn’t have otherwise experienced at the Tunnels. It was great meeting other guests on the tour.

The cooking class was fun and I learned about the Vietnamese cuisine, but was relatively basic and I wouldn’t necessarily recommend for those looking for a more advanced cooking class.

Educational, enjoyavle day with Xuyen our 5* guide
Dec 2019 • Family
Our family of 9 spent a day with HCM Cooking Class guide Xuyen. She took us around the organic farm, conducted the cooking class, and led a 1.5h visit to the Cu Chi tunnels. We were transported in a comfortable air conditioned bus.

ORGANIC FARM. The farm has an impressive array of produce. We harvested a basket full of ingredients we'd use at the cooking class. Xuyen spent time explaining all the plants and their traditional uses. She really knows her stuff and makes the effort to share her knowledge. Don't miss the fascinating explanation of how the farm grows mushrooms.

COOKING CLASS. Xuyen taught us to make 3 dishes and 1 dessert. The cooking area is airy and spacious. The lesson is well organised. The equipment is well set out. Two friendly helpers were like magic kitchen elves, whisking away used utensils, distributing ingredients and controlling our cooking fires. Our group included children, and Xuyen and the helpers were great in giving extra help to them with knife work and frying the food. Xuyen gave clear instructions and we never felt rushed. She was mindful of dietary restrictions, which was much appreciated. Of course, the meal was excellent, and the servings were generous.

CU CHI TUNNELS. Xuyen's explanation of the Vietnamese people's wartime experiences was factual and apolitical. It was an educational experience conducted sensitively. Xuyen held the attention of all of us - primary school aged children, teens and adults.

I would recommend this tour, and would highly recommend Xuyen as a guide. She speaks English fluently and is:
* professional
* earnest and patient
* sensible (no hard sell)
* knowledgeable about food, traditions and history
* works hard to share that knowledge with the group.

A family fun adventure
Dec 2019
This tour is one of the highlights of our trip to Vietnam so far. We were greeted at our hotel reception by Hui our guide for the day and taken in comfort to a lovely agricultural area outside of HCMC. From there we were entertained by Hui with fun facts about the medicinal uses for a variety of fruit, vegetables and herbs as we gathered fresh ingredients to use in our cooking class. The cooking class was heaps of fun, we prepared four dishes all more delicious than the one before with careful help along the way from Hui. The afternoon was spent at Cu Chi tunnels where Hui was an informative guide catering to our preferences.
Overall this was an excellent experience with a fantastic local guide (thanks again Hui) and a highly enjoyable day for our whole family.

Excellent Guide/Chef!
Our guide today was Huy and he made our day so special!!! We really enjoyed our time with him (and “Pineapple” too—a soon to be new guide). We learned a lot, wonderful information was passed on to us and the tour was perfectly prompt and informative.

I am 80% dead and very much appreciated how patient Huy with my hearing issues. Many guides are not as nice

Our day at the farm, cooking class and tunnel tour was one to remember. We had a blast!!! Thank you Huy. :)
