My daughter and I spent 3 nights/4 days on Ha Giang tour and have a great time. Our tour guide Duc was very good. We felt we saw the ‘real’ side of Vietnam and had experiences we never would have had if not on tour. Duc was very helpful regarding camera settings, composition and editing. His personal knowledge when backnin Hanoi was very helpful! Spent time with us outside tour hours helping us out. If you’re into photography I can’t recommend this firm enough. If I ever venture bacj I will most definitely use them again.

Fantastic to know that you guys enjoyed the private Ha Giang tour with Duc! Thanks so much for your kind and generous review. Ha Giang is a really beautiful part of the country, and perfect for photographic adventures. We're very glad indeed that you learned a lot from Duc and we saw that you got some stunning pictures! It was great to meet you too! Thanks again to both of you and see you next time!

We had a great, local experience in Hanoi with Vietnam in Focus. I know we would not have had the same impression of Hanoi if we had not been with the excellent guides Duc and Linh on our tour. They showed us local spots that we would have missed on our own. They were both attentive to our camera settings and angles while helping us set up shots. The numerous fantastic shots we were able to take have formed the memories we have of our stay in Hanoi. It was particularly helpful for Duc and Linh to speak to the local people to communicate our intentions of wanting to take pictures of them in their daily routines, therefore no etiquette was compromised and we were able to get shots we would not have gotten on our own. I will definitely be looking into more extended tours with Vietnam In Focus.

Thanks so much for your awesome review! We were really glad that you and your family got a chance to explore the Hanoi we love and learn some new camera skills. Linh and Duc are both very personable and great photography teachers, and for sure they know how to charm everyone you meet on the street. You got some really excellent pictures too, even on such a rainy day! Wishing you all the best with your photography and future travels. See you next time!

After some confusion and e-mail correspondence I spent an evening with a photographer of Vietnam in Focus in Hanoi. Sorry, but I forgot his name.He was very knowledgeable and could even explain functions of my camera, that I hadn't understood before.It was a very pleasant evening, going to the highlights in Hanoi. We walked around Hoan Kiem Lake, watched the closing ceremony of the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, the Hanoi Opera House and pictured the Christmas decorations of the St. Joseph Cathedral. It was an evening well spent!

Hi there, and thanks so much for taking the time to review us. Your guide for Hanoi by Night's name was Linh, and it's great to hear you enjoyed the tour with him. He's a brilliant photographer and fun to hang out with, so no surprises there! Thanks again and all the best with your photography.

Even though this tour required us to be up and ready to go at 5:30 am; my advice is to "just do it". The tour was very well organized, exciting, and an experience we won't soon forget. We were able to photograph the monks alms giving ceremonies from both land and sea. Equally photogenic was the walk Tou led us on thru his village. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Thanks so much for your very kind review of our On the Mekong tour in Luang Prabang. We're really proud of this tour, and it's great to know you guys enjoyed it so much. Yes, Tou is a charming guy and he really enjoys introducing guests to his village downriver. All the best with your photography and we hope to see you again soon!

We went on the Hanoi on the tracks tour with Hai. As reasonably keen amateur photographers but completely new to Hanoi it was a great experience from start to finish.

Hai really helped us find some interesting shots whilst giving us real insight and background into the places we were seeing.

Great to know you guys enjoyed the tour with Hai and found out about Hanoi behind the scenes. He's a lot of fun to be around and a really talented photographer - sounds like he was able to give you guys some useful pointers in photography too. All the best and see you next time!
