My sister and I had an excellent time at the cooking school. First we visited the local market, then were given a ride in a basket boat (around 30 minutes). The basket boats were very fun and also a relaxing start to the class, and we got to see the "dancing boats" (and were offered the opportunity to take part). The cooking class itself was fantastic - we made 4 different dishes, all of them very tasty, and were given individual guidance in cooking to make sure we could recreate them at home. The chef (who was professionally trained) and her husband were extremely friendly. The cookery school was surrounded by a small lake amongst the palm fronds. The kitchen was spacious and exceedingly hygienic, the food we produced was both delicious and authentic. The price included transport, the ingredients, the basket boat and the cooking class, so was excellent value. Had a fabulous morning and would absolutely recommend.

A wonderful tour that shows you everything you need know the history of the My Son sanctuary and Hoi An. Our tour guide was very friendly, we learned a lot not only about the sights but also the life of the local people and how it's still being affected by the recent history of the country. My Son is beautiful, impressive and the tour was timed so we could watch a charming local music & dance performance. In Hoi An, we visited several sites with great historical importance. It was very enjoyable thanks to interesting stories, information told by our guide. Much recommended!

Amazing day with an amazing team Hang & Ang provided a true authentic insight into life at Vietnam through a trip to the market, a trip out at water, a cooking class and interactions that all make this a must!

Awesome cookery classes, taught myself and my teenage son lots and the food was amazing too :)

Driver was on time. Tour was informative and enjoyable Food was tasty and fun to make
