Despite the rain this tour was still fantastic- just don't forget a poncho! A beautiful basket boat ride through the coconut trees then to a little lodge for the cooking class. The dishes we learnt to cook were delicious and simple enough that we could do it at home! The staff were lovely and got involved with the fun themselves! An added bonus was getting the recipes emailed after too!

We selected very spontaniously this tour and got a big surprise. It was great how Tom took care of us. We highly recommend this tour to everybody who wants to dive deeper into vietnamese cuisine and become a fan of bamboo boat shipping. :)

This is a great insight into the traditional way of life for many Vietnamese people. Our host and guide are a very knowledgeable and passionate chap who really made the tour work. He was able to share many insights and was hands on throughout. Our time in the round basket boats was fun and everyone enjoyed the cooking class. All of the staff l encountered seemed genuinely pleased to take care of us. So much activity, really good value. Thank you!

We had a great day. The tour delivered as per brochure and beyond. The bamboo basket boats were great fun and the ‘drivers’ were ‘cheeky’. The food we cooked was absolutely fantastic and delicious. We had an enormous amount of food to consume. Our guide was wonderful. I totally recommend this experience!
