This was an absolutely fantastic experience, even though we had bad weather every part of the trip was enjoyable. Our chef/guide Be was incredible and I loved her energy! Starting with the market tour, followed by the boat trip, and then, to the cooking school, everything was really nicely organised, and I was really lucky as a vegetarian traveller that I was with a group where there are multiple vegetarians. They were able to cater for us perfectly, and I’ve learned so many exciting new skills to take back home with me!

Was a very nice trip to Hoi An! Got to experience the local food and culture in the Ancient Town. The tour gave us a lot of freedom to wander the night markets and ride a boat. We also got to see the Marble Mountains and learnt alot. Despite the weather being gloomy, it was perfect for this tour. Props to our guide Tim who was very informative! Did wish the tour was a bit organised because we were late to start, but overall would recommend!

We had Jesmine and she was an excellent tour guide and very knowledgeable. Great tour as it is only half day, so can organise something else in the afternoon. Stopped and had a local lunch which we really enjoyed Really recommend!

We enjoyed the morning tour. Jesmine was our guide and she made it easy. She was engaging, knowledgeable and was happy to share. We particularly enjoyed the Vietnamese lessons!

Be was amazing we had a great experience. the boat ride was thrilling and the cooking was delicious and we plan to recreate the dishes at home! well worth the price.
