Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
My name is Nhu Lanh. I am a professional, licensed, tour guide. I am Vietnamese and speak fluent English. I have lived in Ho Chi Minh City for 10 years and have travelled extensively throughout Vietnam and South East Asia.
My work experience includes three years experience as a tour leader for an inbound travel company. I have a degree in Business with extensive study in tourism and hospitality.
I pride myself on my ability to get along well with everyone that I meet and to deliver excellent customer service. I am highly organized, extremely reliable and professional.
I regularly work with TOURISTS visitors, BUSINESS visitors and clients who are MOVING TO VIETNAM TO LIVE.
Your time in my country is limited and I will ensure that your travel expectations are met. I have travelled extensively myself and have been taken from tailor shop to jewelry shop by unprofessional "guides" and have been ripped off by taxi drivers. I will make sure that this does not happen to you.
ENGAGEMENTS, WEDDINGS, ANNIVERSARIES, BIRTHDAYS and other SPECIAL EVENTS.
If you will be celebrating a special event during your time in Vietnam I can help to make it even more memorable. In the past I have worked with clients to arrange memorable birthdays, proposals, weddings and anniversaries. Whether a beautiful dinner, a romantic weekend away or an entire proposal scenario I can help to make the experience unforgettable.
I am a keen photographer and I understand well the needs of photographers when they visit another country. I can act as a location scout, arrange shooting locations or tours for photographers.
I am often booked by BUSINESS visitors who need help arranging travel or organizing meetings etc. I regularly provide these types of services to business visitors as well as acting as a facilitator or translator.
MOVING TO VIETNAM TO LIVE
An increasing number of people are moving to Vietnam to live, whether it is for work or retirement. If you are making a semi permanent or permanent move to Vietnam I can help with all aspects of your move including accommodation, childcare, schooling, banking etc.
If you contact me please provide as much information as you can regarding your interests and what things you would like to see or avoid, as well as providing confirmed dates for your travel.
Recent reviews of this tour guide:
Nhu Lanh was a wonderful guide and we would hugely recommend her. She was very responsive to our requests and planned the time expertly. She is very knowledgeable about the city in particular, and also Vietnam in general. Her English is very good, and we learnt much more from her than we would from any guide book. Five stars and do book her if you are coming to Saigon

Tour guide services/sample itinerary:
I tailor travel experiences to meet your needs. If you are a photographer I can arrange shooting locations, if you are a medical tourist I can arrange appointments with highly reputable medical service providers. I have acted as a translator and "fixer" for visiting business people, arranging and attending business meetings etc. If you are interested in living in Vietnam I can provide advice and assistance on making Vietnam your home.
As a 10 year resident of Saigon I can take you to the usual tourist sights as well as to more "off the beaten track" places where tourists seldom tread.
If you would like to venture further afield from Ho Chi Minh City I can arrange a tour around your interests and budget.
I do not arrange holiday "companionship" under any circumstances.
Transportation by tour guide:
Transportation to meet your travel needs can be arranged on request, from a motorbike to a car and driver to a fast speedboat.
Tour guide interests:
I specialise in tours in and around Ho Chi Minh City that are tours "with a difference" and I tailor everything that I do for my clients specific interests.
As an example If you would like to explore the Mekong Delta I prefer to arrange a fast speedboat run down the Mekong River followed by a leisurely day of exploring the canals and backwaters rather than the one day bus tour that is the Mekong experience of many.
Reviews of this tour – by clients who booked!
For all emails & while visiting, Nhu quickly responded & met requests with cheerful & helpful options. I set a walking route & she knew the best way to see most sights, opening hours vs. lunch hours, & entrance fees. She didn't mind braving heat, humidity, & rain, & ensured we had enough water or tea, & cover for the diverse weather. She became a friend!
Ignore guidebooks: Crossing the street is more dangerous (1000s of motorbikes!) than using iPhone, walking, or markets, so go & ENJOY Vietnam
