Il manquait une personne pour s’occuper des groupes qui a malheureusement eu un accident (mais va mieux) - ce qui donnait l’impression de groupes à la chaîne mais les deux personnes qui se sont occupées de moi et qui allaient de groupe en groupe étaient charmantes et attentionnées. Les explications étaient très claires, ils étaient très patients et les résultat est vraiment sympa! Ravie d’en avoir appris plus sur les lanternes et avoir pu créer ma propre lanternes :) merci encore !!!

We had a really great time, me and my two other friends age 20 really enjoyed this activity. We had lots of fun making our lanterns, you get to choose your own colours and you learn a bit of history behind the lanterns with the Vietnamese culture. Staff were so lovely and helpful :)

Really enjoyed this lantern making class! The class took place in a cute little workshop decorated with lanterns, and we were able to pick out the colours we wanted to use. The guides were absolutely lovely, very upbeat, and played some fun pop music to set the mood. The guides were very knowledgeable and ran us through everything we needed to know, and spoke excellent English. As a group activity, it was excellent value, but we still got lots of one on one input and help from the activity leaders, who checked our work at every stage and made sure we were on track (meaning everyone produced a lantern of high quality too). The lanterns were foldable so will be easy to carry back with us in our luggage. Both of us had a fantastic time and would definitely recommend this activity to anyone in Hoi An!
