We had 1 free day in our package tour in central Vietnam and we would like to do this tour for a half day. The tour was excellent as it be. We could not cyclo because my wife has a bad knees and Mr. Hoa, the owner arrange a car for us to get to the vegetable village. Thank you Hoa for that support! We learnt how to be a real farmer and we leant to be a local master chef by cooking the Vietnamese pancakes, spring rolls. It was a lovely tour and we met great people! Thank you again!

Dear Jimmy Rice,
Thank you so much for your kind and great feedback! Wish you have a great time in Vietnam! Hope to see you again in the near future as a friend!
We did the half day morning Tra Que vegetable village tour + cooking class and it was incredible — one of our absolute favorites in Vietnam, our entire group loved it so much! Our tour guide, Quan was super sweet, knowledgeable, and charismatic and did an amazing job teaching us about the culture and ways of life of farmers in Hoi An. The bike ride from our hotel to the vegetable village was super scenic, beautiful, peaceful, and felt like great exercise. After arriving to the village, we gained a lot of in-depth knowledge of the fruits, plants, vegetables grown by farmers and got to interact with some of them and contribute to the planting/harvesting process. It was very interactive and fun! We then did the cooking class, which was also extremely fun, engaging, and interactive. The ingredients were selected and prepped for us beforehand, but we were very involved in cutting, mixing, etc the ingredients, and making the dishes. Eating the dishes we made was super fun and delicious, and our cooking instructor also made us additional dishes including morning glory, shrimp/pork wraps, and fruit dessert, which were delicious and really filled us all up! Quan our fantastic tour guide also took so many photos throughout, so we have a lot of great photos and memories of the experience to look back on! We ended it off with a foot massage which was very relaxing and nice!
