Fantastic day from start to finish

We had a great time on this trip. In the morning we walked around the market learning about different foods and different ways of eating them (drying them or putting sugar on them to eat as sweets). We then took a boat along the river with was lovely, and also had a basket boat ride. The cooking class was fantastic. The food was delicious and at the end we were given the recipes to take home. Now we are back home (booo) we are going to try out some of the dishes (planned for next weekend), which i'm really excited about. Thank you for a wonderful day and a memorable birthday for the husband.


Excellent Day

Really enjoyed this tour around the markets and the cooking course. Everyone was very welcoming and the whole atmosphere of the day was very enjoyable and traditional. The meals we made were tasty and there was more than enough to eat. Would highly recommend and will hopefully get a chance to return sometime in the future.
