I first did the Cho Lon backstreets tour with Arnaud four years ago, and I learned so much back then. I realized I was lacking in my photographic creativity recently, so I decided to book another tour. Arnaud instantly helped me see the street life in a new and fresh way, and gave amazing advice throughout the entire tour. We connected with the locals and got a look into local life in a little-known part of town. Arnaud is a great teacher/guide and I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to improve their photography skills or simply anyone who wants to see another side of Saigon that most don't see.

The Mekong Hidden Gems 3 day tour with Vietnam Photo Adventures was the trip of a lifetime. Arnaud and his wife were our guides during the trip. We covered a lot of ground and found endless opportunities for beautiful and meaningful photography. Arnaud was a master photography guide, helping to find the good perspectives and providing feedback and guidance at numerous junctures throughout the trip. We experienced the Mekong Delta as few tourists would, making friends with market sellers and shop owners, rice farmers, river boat people and coconut production workers. We spent a night in an exqusitely appointed Mekong river house with warm and kind Vietnamese hosts, ate amazing local cuisine and had unique experiences in a part of Vietnam's south that regular tourists rarely, if ever, have. If you want to experience the Mekong Delta and have an unparalleled photography experience, I strongly recommend Vietnam Photo Adventures tours.

Arnaud was an amazing guide during our one-on-one photo tour, walking me up, down, and through the backstreets of Cholon (District 5 - Chinatown). But first thing in the morning, we stopped for tea/coffee in a little hidden-away corner shop, so he could give me pointers on my camera (which I duly needed) and then talk about the art and ethos of street photography. It was a lot to take in, but fortunately, we put it all into practice right away as we soon set off down streets and hems (alleys) of the neighborhood, chasing the good light, as he might say. A longtime resident of Vietnam, Arnaud speaks the language very well and was a great conversationalist with the people we met along the way, helping to break the ice when shooting shy or indifferent people on the street. He also ran into several people who he clearly knew very well and it was great to watch and be a part of their friendly interaction (even if you speak very little Vietnamese, as I do). Highlights of the walk included walking through the Quan Am pagoda, which was in the midst of a minor Chineses holiday and chock full of worshippers, incense, smoke, and amazing light + shadows, and the nearby Chợ Xã Tây (Xa Tay market), where we worked on shooting in low light as the morning market stalls buzzed around us. All in all, it was a tremendously interesting way to get off the beaten tourist path and see the real TP.HCM while interacting with it and its people.

My wife and I did a Street Photography tour of Ho Chi Minh with Arnaud. We had a great time, went to all kinds of places we would never have gone alone and learned a lot. Arnaud’s approach to the local people opened all kinds of doors for fantastic close up photos. His advice on light and composition were spot on. On top of that he was great company. Thank you Arnaud!

I just returned from an amazing weeklong trip to Ha Giang region in Vietnam. A great mix of exotic landscapes and colorful rural agricultural life throughout the trip. This was my second trip with Arnaud, the first one about a year ago when I first met him for a day photo trip in Saigon. He has a great eye for composition and really helped me improve my photography and Lightroom skills during this trip! I am looking forward to returning on a future trip with him soon!
