I was so excited when I read about these photo tours - I booked for a morning tour and wait listed for an afternoon tour - lucky me - Etienne contacted me and I was able to do both sunrise and sunset tours. I have done several photo classes/workshops and managed to learn .. well nothing ... and feel completely... More

We'll worth the tour, even if your not that good of a photographer. We did both tours , the sunrise tour to a fishing village, then we went on the afternoon tour to a local village. We both learnt a lot about our cameras, even if you didn't want to learn about your camera it was a great experience, to... More

A unique experience and I would recommend it for photographers and non-photographers alike. From the "workshop" part of the tour, I found Etienne to be patient and easy to talk with, answering all my questions and setting me up with solid advice for the future. From the "cultural" side of the tour, it was an amazing experience to mingle with... More

Etienne took us on an early morning tour to the local fishing village to give us a real cultural experience and share with us some very important tips for our photography. I can honestly say, I learnt more about photography techniques in that one morning and met some really lovely people. Lots of fun, great value and a tour that... More

9 of my family members took the sunrise tour together. Even though most of them are novoice photographer, most of them enjoyed a lot. Etienne was our guide, he tried to explain the basic for the team and then we took a coffee and took the fery to the fish market. Everyone there were so friendly and they were willing... More

My wife and I took the sunrise tour on our second trip to Hoi An. Etienne had plenty of useful advice for photographers of all levels with a wide variety of equipment and an easy rapport with participants and locals alike ensuring that the amazing photo opportunities of the gorgeous Vietnamese people can be taken with confidence. The positive reactions... More

My husband did the sunrise tour with Pieter and was so happy to have done it. There was a total of 4 on the course so plenty of time for individual attention. He learnt so much about his camera and taking shots but apart from that it was just lovely to be out in the village and seeing everyday life.... More

"This was an incredible photo-experience and we had such a good impression on how locals life their lives" - that was short In my opinion you have to take into account two things: 1 instructor and his capabilities 2 the tour and what you see 1. Etienne has such a passion for what he is doing, that it immediately has... More

I love taking photos, but am a bit of a novice with camera settings for the best shots. This tour had awesome locations for great pics, but Etienne combined that with amazing advice. A few little tips have immensely improved my photos already! (Wish I had taken the tour at the beginning of my stay!) Don't miss this ( even... More

Great sunset tour that started with a session discussing cameras, options for shooting and getting to know fellow travellers before six of us and instructor Pieter set out by boat along the Sun River. Our main focus was on life in a village where the only Westerners they see tend to be people on photography tours. Pieter advised us on... More
