“This tour exceeded our expectations and was made most memorable by our guide Jurgen, and our driver, Marco. I have a disability and special accommodations needed to be made for me to access the van for the tour. These two gentleman worked very hard to locate a step stool for me access the van, and treated me with dignity and respect. My husband and I were very pleased with the level of service we received and our knowledgeable tour guide.”

“I was extremely fortunate to have a fabulous guide, Wawa, and also to be the only person on the tour that day. As a result, I had a one-to-one experience, and I was able to ask many questions and learn a great deal from her, especially about Buddhism, which proved very helpful when I visited temples on the rest of my trip in Thailand.”
ITINERARY

Discover the history and flavours of Vietnam during this private walking and cooking tour of Hoi An. This is a place oozing with charm, and having largely escaped the destruction of successive wars, its streets and architecture are a delight to explore. After being picked up, head straight for the Old Town ready to hit its ancient streets.

Now a UNESCO World Heritage site, Hoi An's Old Town is packed with buildings of historical and cultural significance and boasts a number of streets that are off-limits to cars. Stroll past the many Chinese Assembly Halls, from the Cantonese Chinese Congregation with its impressive main altar, to the Hainan Chinese Congregation, which serves as a memorial to 107 merchants from Hainan Island who were mistaken for pirates and killed during the reign of Emperor Tu Duc. Stop by the Japanese Covered Bridge, which was constructed in the 1590s by the town’s Japanese community to link them with the Chinese quarters across the stream.

After this brief walking tour of Hoi An, head to a family-run restaurant for a delightful local cooking class. The chef will run through the range of delicious dishes that you will recreate, then it’s time to hit the Hoi An local market to stock up on all the fresh produce needed to create the feast.  Learn how to choose the best supplies, and discover some of the less-familiar ingredients, then head back to the restaurant ready to cook.

Pick up recipes to wow your family and friends with and discover the tricks to making some of the legendary Vietnamese dishes at home. Sit down to feast on all the delicious dishes you’ve created, and promise yourself (and us) that you'll share this culinary glory when you get home.

(If you’d prefer to travel as part of a regular group experience, please book our Hoi An Walking & Cooking Class group tour.) 

This tour is priced for a minimum group size of two travellers. A solo traveller may still book this private experience but will be charged the base rate for two travellers.
