What people are saying about Da Nang

The excursion was well organized. We went directly to the market in Hoi An, bought the ingredients together and then took the minibus to the basket boat ride. The basket boat ride was relatively unspectacular and the drivers were very keen on tips. At the end you could go fishing for crabs, that was really fun! The highlight, however, was the cooking class itself. We cooked a 4-course meal. All steps were explained well and in detail. In the end we were stuffed and very happy about this experience. Cooking course gladly again. You can save yourself a basket boat trip.

What an incredible experience! We started with a nice tour around the market, then we jumped on a ferry up the Thu Bon river, onto a basket boat to Sabirama. It was a treat to get to make 4 dishes from scratch, each dish the chef explained each ingredient and how they blended together. I was lucky, since one of the dishes (bun cuon) is me favorite and I have never made it from scratch before. If you are looking for a fun and yummy experience, this is for you.

The boat ride was a fun way to start the day. It was very cute how the lady made us shrimp and flower finger rings out of palm trees. Then we started our cooking class. Lilly was very friendly and explained it in a simple way. Cooking the rice pancake was a bit scary because of the flames, but Lilly was always on hand to help.

The cooking class was a fun and unique way to experience the food in Hoi An. The chef and all staff involved in the tour were very professional and knowledgeable and we had lots of fun. The food was good

All around excellent tour. The cooking class was 10/10 so the basket boat, massage, market tour were all bonuses and equally wonderful. The guides were kind and efficient.
