What our guests say

  • “Best tours in Vietnam.  Colm, Alex, My, and Linh are all fantastic guides, extremely helpful, and have every step of every tour set up perfectly. I've been in Vietnam for 3 years, and will miss my trips with ViF more than any of the other trips or experiences I've had.”
  • “Once in a lifetime experience.  We really got a feel and appreciation for the lives of the ethnic tribes of the North and an opportunity to capture the experiences with the help of a world class photography expert”
  • “Excellent photography tours in Hanoi. Colm is a fabulous teacher and is extremely knowledgeable about photography and the area.  I thoroughly enjoyed learning new techniques, seeing locations I would never have found myself, and the company's professional service.  I would highly recommend these tours. Thank you for a wonderful experience.”

Street Storytelling Photo Workshop
September 19th to November 7th

Hanoi residents – learn how to make the most of your camera and capture stunning photographs on our weekend Street Storytelling Photo Workshop. We start with a crash course on camera settings and composition, moving onto an analysis of the art of storytelling through pictures.

Each lesson, we look at the work of both grand masters and contemporary photographers to help us develop our own unique styles. Guest photographers Jon Sanwell and Nikolaj Svennevig are on hand to guide us through portraiture, editing skills and software, and finding your own photographic style.
