    Duc and Linh were terrific. I saw fascinating places, rode on two boats, and learned more about composition. Given the number of people, we were given two options: climb the mountain where many people would be or go to the Nature Reserve which is not as well known. We chose the Nature Reserve and it was beautiful and interesting. Vietnam in Focus always makes sure you are taken care of. If I get to go back to Vietnam I will absolutely book more tours with them.

    We went with 3 generations for this trip, some photographers, some not. It was wonderfull, we had 2 guides, Duc and Toan, boat young, full of energy and humanity ! They were perfect, we loved it. Duc was great for exploration to all generations, from my mum to my son. A perfect photography tour, he stopped the car whenever it was interesting, was nice and human with the locals to make them confortable... All what we want from a photography tour. We recommend them two with a lot of enthusiasm and we are grateful they made our trip to Ninh Binh so nice.

    Duc was an amazing and patient tutor. I am an enthusiastic amateur and he was happy to teach, answer all my questions and show me techniques to enable me to improve my photography. He was also knowledgeable about the area we visited and was happy to vary things according to my wishes. The day was very well organised, with a good combination of places to see & photograph. In addition, Duc has signposted me to useful on-line info & tutorials to help me further and also took some photos of me while i was concentrating on composing shots which was nice. I will look out for similar photo tours on my next holiday but Duc has set the bar very high for others to follow!
