We did street food tour at Hanoi and really enjoyed it so decided to do another food tour at Hoi An. Our tour guide is Christine, a very nice lady who can speak good English. The food is a lot nicer than the one we bought from the night market the night before. It’s a great way to understand the local culture and history. Highly recommend this tour.
Foods always deeply connected to local culture. We tried 9 different kinds of food tonight.Almost each of them has its own story. We know more about Hoi An's history after joining this tour. BTW, our tour guide,Christine's English was extremely great. She was so friendly and professional. I really recommend people to join this tour. But don't forget to empty your stomach before starting this tour or you might be too full!!!
First ever food tour and it was amazing! Our guide Gum spoke really fluent English and was very knowledgeable about the local culture. She was very interactive throughout the whole tour, and introduced us to many good food in Hoi An! As you would need to walk from place to place, you will have time to digest your food along the way, so feel free to eat to your content if you’re up for it! The boat ride along Hoai River was very tranquil and the bingo game at the end of the tour was really fun too! My dad was super hyped for it, and guess what, he was the winner of the game! How lucky (:
The morning guide was cheerful and full of smiles. We had fun riding on the water buffalo. The owner was skilful and sensitive to the rider and the buffalo. The coconut basket ride was enjoyable too. They took their time to bring us through the waterway to the restaurant. Though they couldn’t speak English, they use simple words like, ‘photo’ and hand gestures to communicate to us. As the weather was pleasant, we were all relaxing on the boats.
Dishes at the restaurant were simple yet tasty. The hosts were warm and friendly. They spoke good English too. Strongly recommend the countryside tour for something different.
The afternoon tour was informative. Christine spoke English well and was patient and got along very well with our children. She was also humble and the learning was two-way and enriching. She chose the 5 best places to show us the ancient Hoi An town. Having being born and grew up in the ancient town, you can feel her love for the place. She also shares her personal memories about the town and the people she knows. Overall, a great way to take in the sights and sounds of Hoi An and learn more about Hoi An. Our group of ten had a lovely time with her. She is young but experienced and paced the tour well to suit the needs of our group.
Highly recommend this experience in Hoi An. Throughout this experience, we able to taste the Vietnamese home cook dishes, coffee and delicious local street food.
The tour guide 'Gum' can speak fluent English. She is friendly and tell us a lot about the local cultures.
We ended the activities with boat ride, foot massage and their local bingo game. Overall, It was really fun and interesting tour for us.
Absolutely recommended, especially as early in your Hoi An stay as possible. We learned so much about central Vietnamese cuisine, got to taste a heap of different dishes at restaurants that specialise in them, plus the chance to make our own spring rolls at a local home. The bingo was fun, and the boat ride at the end a lovely way to finish. Our tour guide spoke very good English and was funny and engaging with lots of insights about Vietnamese life.
