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.

I got a private class by accident, as everyone else on my tour apparently fell sick and had to cancel. It was a great experience, and everyone was so welcoming and lovely. The cooking class was very detailed, patient and thorough, and they are excellent teachers. I made fresh rice paper from scratch, banh xiao, pho, and a delicious green bean soup dessert. Thank you for the wonderful experience! Had a great time, and the wet market experience was very fun.

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
