My name is Hung, but when I am guiding I am known as Mr David as it is much easier for my foreign guests to remember. I have been guiding foreigners in the Northern and Central regions of my country for over 8 years now and have made many friends in the places I travel to, and have a network of “locals” that I can talk to and introduce to my clients. This enables clients to ask questions, become more informed and often is a highlight of my client’s journeys. I have learned many things from this group of friends and it also enhances my knowledge and history of the districts as well. This network of local people grows larger with every visit to their districts.
I am a happy person by nature and I try to instill this feeling amongst my clients and a few jokes or funny remarks tend to set the scene. I work mostly with travel agencies and conduct guided tours mainly in Halong Bay, the mountainous north (around Sapa), private day tours to many handicraft villages, Tam Coc, Hoa Lu, the Perfume Pagoda, Mai Chau, Ninh Binh, Hanoi City Day Tours and many other places.
I am available for bookings of any tour that a client may wish to take; I am honest, hard working and knowledgeable and always ensure the safety of any group with me. I answer questions truthfully and if there is anything I don’t know, I make it my business to find out. I feel that it is important to do this as the information I discover will hold me in good stead for future.

HANOI CITY TOUR
I meet my clients at their hotel, introduce myself and have a 3-4 minute chat with them and explain the day’s movements. We travel to our first site, the Ho Chi Minh Complex that contains the Mausoleum, the Presidential Palace, Ho’s house on stilts, the One Pillar Pagoda and gardens. We then move to the Temple of Literature and on completion of our extensive look we have lunch at a local restaurant
After lunch we proceed to the Ethnology Museum, a museum dedicated to the 54 different ethnic tribal groups that make up Vietnam. This Museum has many sections, some outside the buildings and is one of the most visited places in Hanoi. We then move to the “Hanoi Hilton”, a jail that the French imprisoned many resistance fighters. Our day tour concludes with a cyclo ride in the Ancient Streets of the Old Quarter.
Transportation by tour guide:
Transportation is up to my clients. Some like to walk, others prefer to take a bus or private air-conditioned vehicle, and some like a little of both. I always ask my clients views and explain the price differentials of the different modes of transport available to them..
