“I took 3 tours( markets tour, food tour and high vs low) and really enjoyed all te tours. It's an excellent way to visit many places in a short period of time and get a great overview of Hong Kong and how the local people live. I highly recommend these tours. The tour guide was really energetic and knowledgeable. These tours are a must do if you visit HK.”

“(This is also what we have posted on the tripadvisors web site:) We only had 2 hours of sleep after we arrived in Saigon coming from Canada. That did not prevent us to get up early in the morning and go to meet Hoa Tran, our guide from Urban Adventures for our pre-booked Cyclos & Markets tour. Boy we were happy we did that. That was the quickest, the most personable (it was just 2 of us tourists on the tour) the safest way (because of intense traffic) to get the direct feel of real Saigon. Hoa was so very reliable, pleasant and patient with us as much as her 3 guys who were paddling us in between huuugeee storm of motorbikes (there are about 6 mil. registered motorcycles in this city!), cars, dangerously crossing pedestrians If we have wanted to see so many different things in one day, we would not have been happy with any other way but with these one seater rickshaws. On this tour, the most we have liked is our visit to the Tan Dinh Market since it was more local and authentic then Ben Thanh) and Hoa knew how to connect us with those sales people. Thanks a bunch Hoa and Urban Adventures!”

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.)
