Spring was a great guide with fantastic clear English. It was a little difficult to hear what was being said around the market because of the bustle and size of the group. My daughter (11) and I had a great day. To travel to the course by boat was nice and the bamboo boats were a fun thing to do with my daughter. We caught 7 crabs! The cooking course was hands on which was brilliant. I liked that you ate each course as it was cooked rather than everything at the end. An enjoyable day and highly recommend.

Amazing tour run by a local family with great levels of English, the husband has great levels of the local markets and area and is extremely helpful whilst the wife gives an excellent cooking class with delicious and tasty dishes. The basket boat is also extremely enjoyable and fun! Pick this tour if you would like to support friendly locals and have a great day

Great trip, you could have saved yourself the snorkeling at this point but it was still great to jump into the water and swim :)

Excellent tour! We loved the entire day, the boat rides, the locals and of course the cooking class was top notch!

as always very well organized, great guide to Hoi An, you deserve her bonus!
