This was a great morning out into the countryside seeing life as it really is, whilst learning how to use my camera to its best, Ettiene was a great source of knowledge about the village and villagers and show the group how to take photos in all the situations presented. Patience that Ettiene had helping us to get our heads... More

The early morning fishing village tour with Etienne was superb. There were 10 people in our group, all at various levels and yet we all gained from the day. We were challenged to think about camera settings, light, composition etc and make decisions ourselves which Etienne then discussed with you personally. He had three or four people in the village...

I did a morning photo tour with Etienne. An early morning start got us to the river and onto the boat by sun-up. The trip features a boat ride down and across the river to a fishing village in time to document the buzz as the boats come in to unload they catches. Afterwards, the tour takes you on a... More

I would highly recommend Hoi An Photo Tours . A wonderful experience for any tourist who wants to learn more about their camera and the Vietnamese culture on the Mekong River. Our guide Etienne was highly professional and offered a joyful learning experience. This tour is a must!

As a professional photographer for over 15 years, I was looking for access to a different area of Hoi An other than the old town and the usual images everyone captures. I was excited to be able to capture the Vietnamese people in their everyday lifestyle. The tour is very well organised and the rapport Etienne has with the Vietnamese... More

I did the sunrise tour with Etienne and a fair sized group - 8-10 I suppose. We were running a little bit late, so Etienne was a little flustered, but he kept his enthusiasm and good humour. He conveyed a lot of information, and organised things nicely so that all levels were catered for. The light was beautiful, and there... More

Hello Jill, I do not think naming your review "did not show up" is fair. As we have been exchanging several emails since that event happened and you know that I was late on that day (due to the number of hotels for other pick ups). Also I did show up, as you know, and the reception of your hotel... More

I recently did a morning tour with Etienne and the whole experience was absolutely superb. Etienne is a lovely and genuine guy and incredibly knowledgable on the local area. He collected me from my hotel and we headed to the river to catch a boat over to the villages on the other bank. The trip is brilliant for both amateurs... More

Both being keen photographers, my son and I signed up for the early morning workshop. Getting my teenager up at half four was the worst bit but once that was over things started to look up. The minibus picked us up a little late but Etienne had already been in email communication to warn us. Our first coffee of the... More
