This tour is like no other, you will truly get to experience the local Vietnamese culture and the many delicious dishes that they cook on a daily basis. We have specifically designed this tour to be fun for all the family, so whilst you are cooking away, your children can be participating in many exciting activities specially prepared to keep them entertained.
From Hoi An ancient town at either 8:30 a.m or 1:45 p.m, depending on whether you choose the morning or afternoon tour, where an English speaking guide will greet you. The tour heads in the direction of neighbouring city Hoi An and once here your first stop is to a local food market, where you will be instantly drawn in by the many sights, smells and colours. Next up you will be taken to the local river where you will get to experience being rowed up the river in the famous bamboo boats, during this time you will see many passing fisherman as they go about their work. Once you have arrived at your destination a buffalo cart will be waiting for you to transfer you to the cooking class.
Upon arrival to the cooking class you will be greeted with a relaxing foot massage and complimentary drinks so you can have some time to relax before the class begins. During the class you will work alongside a very talented and local teacher, they will provide you with a list of options so that you yourself can choose what you wish to cook. Once the group has made their dishes everyone will sit down together and enjoy the food that you all have made and hopefully sharing a few memorable stories about your cooking class experience. After you have eaten your meals and let the food settle down you will have some free time to participate in some fun activities such as having your own go at sailing a bamboo boat or making decorative vegetable and fruit flowers. Your guide will then return you to your accommodation for you to enjoy the rest of your day.
