Hanoi, Vietnam

Xin Chao! It's Nam (David ) from Vietnam. From a young age I had always dreamed of becoming a Vietnam tour guide to show people the beauty of Vietnam and after extensive English lessons, I am proud to say I now offer a range of guiding services to suit your travel plans.

Many people that have experienced Vietnam private tours with me have said that I'm a friendly and happy character which is why they call me "Nam Smile".
Hanoi is my home and with over 7 years experience I can help make your stay in Vietnam comfortable and trouble free whilst feeling like you are travelling with a friend.

My experiences began many years ago as a waiter working in a restaurant for English guests where I could practice my language skills on a regular basis and during my time working, I realized that I should pursue a career in travel and tourism. Shortly after my summer working as a waiter, I was granted the opportunity to work as a major tour guide for a university in Hanoi and alongside this, I had secured a position 10 km away to work with a non-profit organization as their international coordinator. Working with volunteers every day gave me more chances to practice my language skills and within 3 months I was comfortable having long conversations in English.

I have travelled through 53 of all 63 provinces in Vietnam and also visited destinations in Laos, Cambodia and Thailand many times over the past few years.
Choosing me as your Vietnam private guide means I can assist with finding unique places to add to your itinerary whilst experiencing the country as a local without the hassle of translating or strenuous planning. Plus, a wide range of Vietnam private tours are available from the rural Vietnamese countryside to the historic capital and we can customize your Vietnam private tour to cater for your style of travel and budget.
Alongside ordinary travel guiding, I can also provide my services for business clients, educational visits, airport transfers and interpretation.

I focus on local living tours with unique travel local experiences with fully customized private tours and eco-friendly tours in and around Vietnam. I am working hard to make Hynam Tours bring more value to a real visitor to Vietnam and make memorable holidays.

A Recent Review of this guide

Our Rural Hanoi Farm Tour and Day trip was one of the best highlights of our entire trip. David (Nam) was an exceptional guide - the best guide we had in our 17 days in southeast Asia. He was very bright, very knowledgeable, and spoke fluent English. He totally understood the type of day we were looking for and built an itinerary accordingly. It was perfect. We were the only tourists in the villages Nam brought us to throughout the day. It was a great opportunity to engage with locals and learn from them.
