    The walking tour was ok , we had to use our Old town tickets that we had purchased the day before to gain entrance to the buildings thst we visited , which we were not aware of beforehand. We did not know if the guide was suppose to supply this or not ? We were the only ones on the tour . We were taken for a coffee stop for 30 minutes too which we didn't really feel was needed in the 2 hour walk . At 10oclock we were met at the market by our chef who took us around the food market to choose some ingredients for the cooking lesson. We then had to walk quite a distance to the local restaurant which he owned . As we were the only 2 people on the tour , we got a private cooking lesson. This was very good , in fact we cooked too much and we struggled to finish all the food. We received a cookbook with the recipes that we cooked and some chopsticks . The cooking experience was the best part of this tour .

    This was a great way to get to know the history of Hoi An! The cooking class was good too, but a venue with air conditioning would have been better. Yummy though!

    Spent most of the time walking to the Museum. Very little time cooking. The restaurant only had 3 small burners and 8 people. It was all very rushed and you got to do very little cooking. The market visit took 10 minutes we and only bought 2 ingredients. This could have been because of the torrential rain. Maybe if the weather is good, you do get to see around the market and buy your ingredients. The food was tasty and we got the recipes.

    Hoi An ancient town is stunning. It and #39;s a fascinating place, a few hours isn and #39;t really long enough to explore but our guide Lungh certainly took us to and told us about many interesting places e.g. Japanese covered bridge. Bong and #39;s market tour and cooking class was great, the food fresh and tasty!
