Our family including 2 teenagers enjoyed a photography tour with Loc in December 2019. He was very personable and went out of his way to ensure that our interests were met. We visited a fishing port, boat building yard, rice paper making factory, a family of 3 generations of conical hat weavers and a mat weaving demonstration. He recommended a lunch of traditional rice paper rolls which were delicious. Throughout the day he assisted with great ideas and angles for capturing some fabulous photos.

We joined Loc's photo trip when we visited Nha Trang in January 2019. Loc is a professional photographer and a great local tour guide. He knows a lot of the local people in the fishing village, market place, the conical head factory, rice warp factory, and the local food restaurants. We had a good time and took lots of good photos during the trip. We also visited Loc's gallery after the tour and really appreciate his art works.

Loc is a great photographer and gave us hints and advice to allow us to get great pictures. We went to areas in Nha Trang that were off the usual tourist route and Loc had a great working relationship with the local people allowing us an unusual amount of access to their world.

Loc is truly a professional photographer! He specializes capturing everyday people involved in their daily activities. Our tour was as described, and he was generous with his time and with taking photos of my partner and me at our various venues. If you have an opportunity to visit his gallery in the Long Beach area, it is very impressive! He has won prizes for his National Geographic style photos in various international competitions.

I arrived in Nha Trang and was looking for a photographer/guide on internet and I came across Loc Mai on toursbylocals.com. I feel very lucky to have come across an award winning photographer who is so humble and wonderful to be with! Loc made sure I got all the images I wanted by showing me around. I would definitely recommend Loc Mai to anyone who has a passion in photography.

Without question, our tour through Nha Trang with Loc Mai was a once in a lifetime experience. No one ele on our cruise ship saw the heart and soul of the city like we did. Markets, artisans, craftsmen, the young, the elderly. And Loc showed us how to capture it all on film. An authentic Vietnamese barbecue lunch, with Loc manning the hibachi. It was an experience I will not soon forget. Thank you, Loc Mai, for exposing us to a culture and a people of which you are justly proud.

we were a group of well traveled senior citizens interested in seeing mostly "off the beaten path" sites and fewer regular tourist attractions. We spent a day with Loc and he designed a tour that was perfect for us. The van was comfortable and modern. Loc gave us a glimpse into daily life and history of his country. He is very creative and resourceful; Just tell him what your interests are and he makes it happen.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comments. Wishing you all the best. I am looking forward to see you all soon another time.

Fantastic tour!! Loc took us to many places in Nha Trang that we would never have seen on a large tour (in our case, we were off a cruise ship for a day)or on our own. We got to see in a "behind the scenes way" how the village people work, live, and play. It was the most interesting day of our 3 weeks visit to the many places in this region of the world! Not only is Loc's photography amazing, but he provided us fantastic photo opportunities! Highly recommend Loc! Don't hesitate to book this tour.

Yours faithfully, Best regards Mai Loc
Loc was the fourth of series of guides that we have booked during our cruise aboard the Diamond Princess cruise ship of Princess Lines. Loc was amazing!!!!! He took us to secret places where not a single tourist was to be found. His eye for photography was impressive. We saw things and met people we will never forget. Our photos of Nha Trang are amazing. Plus, considering his life experiences, he has a wonderful outlook in life. We were taken to a popular Vietnamese barbecue. Loc was the best. Thanks
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your feedback .Love to you all from Nhatrang Vietnam. Till then I wish you all the best .
True to his word, Loc met us outside the port of Nha Trang and we were taken by an air-conditioned van to his popular spots. I learned more with Loc in 5 Min than I had in years. Taking our camera in his hands, he showed us how to get the best composition. We went everywhere in Nha Trang, except where the tourist are. Fish Market, Basket Weaving, Rice Paper, and Pottery. Loc could have not been better. A Fantastic Experience. Oh... we won all the photo comps on board too. :)
