We were picked up from our hotel and taken to the market where we bought our ingredients. this part dragged on a while, especially when she would explain to us what a carrot or a potato was. Next we boarded a rickety boat - which was when we started having doubts. However, after this part was over we got onto... More

This course was fun, Mo collected us from our hotel and took us to the market. She explained all the ingredients and gave them their English name as she bought them also showing us things of interest and explaining as we went through the market. We then took two boat trips which were great and arrived at the cookery school... More

first, Magnolia Homestay recommended this tour for my bf and me. they made a simple call and we were told to be ready by 7am. I think this is one of the more extended tours since we started so early. chef Hon (i think?) was our tour guide and i think he moonlights as a singer too. honestly, I wouldn't... More

After reading all the reviews I was really looking forward to this trip in the first few days of our visit to Vietnam. It excelled our expectations! We were very hands on with the staples like fresh spring rolls, noodle soup and rice pancakes but also all the little dipping sauces. Our chef trainer was fantastic as was all the... More

Had an awesome morning with the great chef Hon - first walking around the local market and buying the ingredients (the chef told us a lot about using different herbs and veggies and spices), then chilling on a boat, and after that exploring the secret world of traditional Vietnamese food under the keen eye of chef Hon. Cooking was so... More

Lovely experience walking through the market having all the local foods and herbs explained. Short boat trip to the island. Jan was a fabulous teacher and taught us to cook delicious local specialties. Everything was well organised the food was delicious and very plentiful. Bottomless glass of passion fruit juice. My 12 year old really enjoyed this experience and learnt... More

Our guide Hien was just lovely, she was enthusiastic, sweet and a fantastic cook. We made four dishes and some of the food that we made was the best food we ate on our entire two week trip, and we ate some pretty awesome food everywhere we went! It was also a really fun day, definitely would recommend it.

We just had a wonderful market tour and class with our guide, Jan. She spoke excellent English and took us through Hoi An's central market to buy ingredients for our meals. We made four courses after boating to the island for the class. The class was well-paced, food quality was high, and the amount of food was perfect - full... More

We had a great day with our energetic guide Mo, and our fun chef Thy, who led us through cooking 4 dishes in a lovely setting. The day started in the market where we bought all the ingredients - this was fun because other food tours may take you to the market to look, but you don't often actually buy... More
