This tour was great. They were able to accommodate me when scheduling last minute and the tour was fantastic. The guide, Mr. Minh, was very helpful and had a great portfolio of work. The locations we visited I never would have known to go to and the tour resulted in a great set of photos that my friends have enjoyed. Thank you!

Brett was an excellent photo guide. We explored some fascinating parts of Hanoi that get little tourist traffic. We photographed the night market and Long Bien station and surrounding area. Brett was an excellent photo coach and provided useful tips and camera settings, as well as suggested views. I learned a great deal about Hanoi's street market life and local train station activity. I recommend this tour highly for anyone interested in going beyond the tourist sites and exploring more about the daily lives of the people of Hanoi.

This was a fantastic experience - my girlfriend is a fairly experienced photographer, I am a complete novice. She uses a complicated DSLR, whereas I just have my smartphone. William our guide was able to find something for each of us to learn at our own level, and showed me some of the features I can manipulate even with my smartphone to get some really nice shots.

You start before dawn and head down to the train tracks, there are some amazingly atmospheric scenes to capture here, and it's sort of an area that you would know to go to without a guide. Then you see some little market streets, again off the normal tourist track, so you're actually seeing a real Street market come to life first thing in the morning without throngs of other tourists around, it feels like a chance to see a bit of really authentic Hanoi life.

William was fantastic, very generous with his time and knowledge of the city, and his experience in how to approach people and scenes when doing street photography, we had a fantastic morning and we only wish we had done this tour earlier in our holiday. Highly recommended for photographers of any level at all.

Delighted to hear you guys enjoyed our new On the Tracks tour with William. It's pretty amazing what you can capture with smartphones nowadays, but having a photography expert like Will with you makes all the difference. Great that you both got a lot out of the experience and learned so much. Thank you for the review and hope to see you guys again soon!

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.

Ninh Binh is a great place for photography, just because there's so much variety - but it really helps to be with a couple of guys who know the area so well. Sounds like you made the right choice by going to Van Long nature reserve too. Thanks so much for being a great sport and I'm sure we'll see you again soon.

This is the first photo tour I’ve taken where I learned something. Typically photo tours stop with aperture and shutter speed and if you already know those things they have nothing to tell you. Duc not only took me to interesting photo opportunities, he explained aspects of local life and taught me about street photography. He also taught me new photographic techniques. I was much more comfortable taking shots of people in Vietnam as a result of this tour and enjoyed my entire trip more as a result. Duc will teach you as much as you want to learn. I loved this trip so much that I proceeded to book several more with them.
