Description:

We’re much more than just a food tour – we’re a Vietnamese Food Expo...

We’re much more than just a food tour – we’re a Vietnamese Food Expo providing an entertaining opportunity to experience and learn about Vietnamese culture through its unique cuisine.

We start with the experience of the bustling local Hoi An market where we meet local vendors and taste some selected foods. We then walk a short distance to our comfortable tasting room for the tasting presentation of a wide selection of delicacies bought directly from local vendors - some of whom we saw or met in the marketplace.

Our package includes:

. Pick-up from local Hoi An hotels.

. Guided walking tour of markets, food producers and vendors

. Full commentary with English speaking hosts

. More than 30 different food and beverage tastings

. Complimentary non-alcoholic drinks

. Hygienic and safe food handling

. Comfortable tasting venue

. Printed list of foods offered

. Great photo opportunities

. Food and restaurant recommendations - and more

Yes, yes, yes.... this is a must-do when in Hoi An. I would also recommend you do this tour on day 1 or 2 of your visit to this part of Vietnam. The tour is well organised, professional, trustworthy and worth every cent. You will be taken to the back streets, local restaurants, laneways and hard to find places all... More

We recently did the street food tour with Neville and it was excellent. Neville is an ex-pat Aussie and has built a great reputation with the "locals" in Hoi An and knows exactly which places offer authentic Vietnamese food. Our take home brochure indicates we did 44 tastings on the tour plus visited the local markets to gain a greater... More

We're still full from our tour with neville and Ms Sen and our tour finished 2 days ago! You want to take the recommendations to avoid breakfast, you definately wont need it. First half of the tour is walking through the markets guided by lovely Sen. Her English is amazing and she had lots of knowledge of the local foods... More

We went on this tour on our first morning in Hoi An. What an exceptional experience it was. Neville and his fantastic, enthusiastic staff made it all a wonderful experience. The food we tasted was out of this world, so many wonderful flavours and textures. We wish we had done this tour last year on our first visit to Hoi... More

We love eating a wide variety of foods, but are also somewhat cautious because we want to avoid stomach issues. This Original Taste of Hoi An tour gave us a great introduction to Hoi An Cusine, and gave us more courage to try food items that were previously beyond our comfort level. We tasted about 45 different items on the... More

This tour is a delight from beginning to end, and well worth the early start. I advise, as others have, starting on an empty stomach and pacing your way through the 40 plus (!) tastings as you are expertly guided by Ms Sen, Neville, Colleen and the team. A great way to learn about the raw ingredients, history and culture... More

An absolute joy from start to finish. Neville and his team make you feel right at home from the very beginning, sharing their insight into the culture and food of Vietnam they have picked up over their year there. A fabulous time, and recommended as a start to your trip in Hoi An.

This tour really is a must do and to be done at the start of your time in Hoi An. We were staying in Danang and Neville arranged a pick up and transfer at a reasonable cost. After a welcome drink? Ms Sen leads a walking tour through a local market and streets tasting carefully selected local foods. You are... More
