Ha noi, Vietnam

Xin Chao! Hello! My Vietnamese name is DUC, which means Virtue in English.

My parents told me that they chose this name because they expected me to become a good man in life and I think I have done it well :). You can also call me ALEX for easier communication.

I was born and raised up in Hanoi for whole my life, so I know and understand all about Hanoi city and its people. I graduted from 2 big Universities in Hanoi, majoring in Tourist Guide and English from 1999. I speak fluently English and have great skills as well as knowledge of Vietnam history, geography, culture, customs, and more. I have worked in the tourism Industry since 1995, have good cooperation with service suppliers, such as accommodation, transportation, and ticket booking agents. This, I am able to organize all private or customize tours upon your requirements. Travelling with me, you will not have any wonder of serives for sure.

Last but not least, I am a traveler like you. I love to explore diffirent lands, taste local foods, and learn about new customs and cultures. I have traveled throughout most of Asia in countries such as: China, Hongkong, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, and Korea. Travelling with me, we're certain to share our passion for discovering Vietnam.

YOUR VACATION IS NOT ONLY A TRIP, IT IS A LIFE EXPERIENCE!

A Recent Review of this guide

Alex is an excellent guide. His English is very good. He was flexible at what museums we wanted to see. We decided to choose the Military History Museum over the Ethnology Musuem that we did not regret. He took us for lunch to a charity cafe and helped us to choose dishes. The spring rolls served there were very delicious! I only wished we could see the Imperial Citadel rather than going to the place that sells paintings. This should be communicated well in advance. Overall, I highly recommend Alex.
