I had a fantastic day with Rose my tour guide. She took me through the local markets so we could buy food for our meal. Rose was friendly and knowledgable and gave me great insight into cooking Vietnamese food and its culture and people. Her English is excellent and she is intelligent and personable. She took me to her home where we cooked spring rolls, green papaya salad and Beef Pho. It was a truly delicious hands on experience. I highly recommend Rose as your personal tour guide in Vietnam.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lorrie Rothman, I could not know to fully express my sincerest thanks for your kind choice on my service of cooking class. As a trained chef who is really passionate about Vietnamese cuisine, I was so happy and honored to welcome you to my home for hands-on cooking experience. I am so glad that you truly enjoyed the time with me and my family. I am even happier to know that you will make Vietnamese to welcome friends next week when you return home. Please share me your photos. Sincerely, Rose

We have done a lot of tours, but this one was special. Rose is an outstanding guide, with a charming personality and deep knowledge. We did a detailed exploration of the market and bought produce to cook. Then to a kitchen on the second floor of a restaurant where we prepared some outstanding dishes. Too much food for us, but it was so tasty, and fun to cook. My wife hates cooking tours, but she loved this one. Rose does other tours, and when we return to Vietnam we will certainly use her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Paul Gillis and Grace, I am deeply grateful for your kind choice on my service & for enjoying the trip with me. Bringing the exceptional services to clients is always my goal. Cooking is always my great passion. I am so happy for us to cook healthy Vietnamese cuisine. Thank you for your kind co-operating; we are such well-matched team. I am so excited to welcome you back one day for another wonderful experience. I wish you all the best and with deep respect, Rose

Rose is a very assured and organized cooking teacher. Her market tour was so informative and thorough yet not overwhelming. She picked just the right amount of ingredients to focus on. And the spring rolls we made in her class were the best we had on our entire trip! I would love to have one for lunch right now in Chicago!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Good afternoon Mr. Rick Bayless and dear family, I could not know how to fully express my sincerest thanks, exactly my honor to be your share my great cooking passion to such famous chef like you. We had such a wonderful day. I am so excited to see you with your Vietnamese cuisine photos. Please send my hello and best wishes to your dear family. With sincerest thanks and warmest regards always, Rose

If you only had time for one tour - this should be it! Rose did an amazing job of leading us through the market to find our goods for the cooking class. It was absolutely fascinating. Be prepared, you'll see all kinds of things! We could have never navigated this without her. The class was so fun and informative and the lunch we made together was delicious. She gave us the confidence to be able to make the menu at home and when we do, we will always think of our amazing time in Hanoi!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Matthew Allen, I would like to thank you very much for your kind feedback on my cooking class. It has been great to be your companion during local market tour and cooking class. I feel so much glad that we all made beautiful food together. Hanoi cuisine really deserves to cook because it is healthy and certainly yummy. Should you need any help for making Vietnamese food at home, please feel free to tell me. I am willing with pleasure. Rose wishes you all the best.

If you enjoy exploring local markets and learning about local cuisine and culture, this is the private tour you have been looking for. We had an amazing time with Rose as we purchased the ingredients at the local market and then accompanied her to a local restaurant for our cooking class. What an amazing experience! Rose is a wonderful chef and teacher. She taught us to cook spring rolls, Beef Pho, stuffed eggplant and seafood mango salad. What a wonderful day! Thanks Rose!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Paul and wife, I could not know how to fully express my gratitude for your kind support and glowing comments about my services. It is really my pleasure to welcome you in my cooking class. We had such great time to explore local market and cook together. I am so happy that you enjoyed very much the eggplant and spring roll. You can be proud you made the best spring roll. Should any further questions needed about recipe or any Vietnamese food, feel free to ask me. With lots of love & best wishes, Rose
