Thanks to make me to have an awesome trip at HCM! It was great to meet up with Vi and her family. I have booked Vi for 4 hours cooking tour. I done my last minutes booking and luckily Vi manage to arrange for me. My initial plan is to enrol cooking class at cooking centre, however talk to Inspitrip Alex, he recommends me to book Vi for a private cooking class. I was dilemma to make the decision and until last minute, I found out the cooking centre will be closed due to public holiday. Hence, I must make the booking with Vi. Luckily Vi manage to arrange time for me and it was an unforgettable experience for me. Vi has arrange me to her house for this cooking class, Vi and her husband taught me cook few Vietnamese dishes, and after that we enjoy dinner together. It was not only to learn how to cook, it also has fun to have this kind of gathering with local people, the experience I got definitely cannot get it from others tour. Thanks Inspitrip :D
I could not have been luckier to find David as a guide. From the moment he arrived with water and a poncho (it was a very wet day!) and a big welcome smile, I knew I was in for a great day. Not only is David kind, funny and considerate his knowledge is amazing. He took me to so many attractions and at each and every one he talked me through the history, shared his own insights and thoughts and made sure I had photos and time to take everything in. When we went for lunch David gave me two options and I was so glad I went with the more adventurous one to delight in real local dining. I had such a great time with David I have sought his services again tonight for a food walking tour and tomorrow for a rural day trip. I am so grateful to have met this wonderful local guide and would recommend David to anyone who wants a truly authentic and insightful experience.
