Private tour guide Leon

Leon

Ha Noi, Vietnam

My name is Leon, I used to live in Germany for 12 years before coming back to Viet Nam and becoming a tour guide in 2004.

Thanks to the 12 years living in Germany, I have excellent communications skills in English, German and speak good French.
However, this is not my main strength, as a hobby traveller, I used to travel all around Europe and now started my discovery journeys around Asia. Whenever I travel, I have only 1 wish, I wish to meet somebody who will regard me as a good friend and show me the places that an usual tourist won't be able to see. Understanding that point, I turned myself to that person here in Viet Nam for all other visitors. I usually say, when you contact me then you are my client, when we meet then we are still strangers, but when we go on the tour then I am a friend of yours.

My private tours around Vietnam and unique Hanoi tours will show you things that you neither find on any travel map nor any guide books. Going on a private charter trip with me will make your trip unique, filled with unforgettable memories and enrich your experiences through the deep looks into the country. And all that is my promise to you!

A Recent Review of this guide

Leon is a fantastic guide with a unique perspective. He was easy to communicate with before our arrival to help us decide on a tour that would be interesting to us. After spending a day touring some of Hanoi he was able to suggest additional experiences that suited our interests. He really cares about the people he has developed relationships with that in turn allow visitors an inside look into Hanoi life. Highly recommend!
