Thuan Pham Private tour guide in Hue, Da Nang, Hoi An - Vietnam

Thuan Pham

Guide profile:

My name is Peter Thuan Pham.

I was born and raised in the city of Hue. Situated in central Vietnam, Hue was the country’s former capital from 1802-1945. As the historic capital of Vietnam for almost 150 years, Hue invites travelers to explore its many fascinating sites, including the Imperial City and Royal Tombs, as well as its myriad quaint streets, exotic shops, and restaurants that serve our world-renowned Hue cuisine.

As a a well-experienced Local guide, I have been guiding tourists around Hue and other nearby sites for over 8 years.

I would like to not only tell you about Vietnam’s history in gerenal, about Hue history and culture in particular, but also show you how local people live and work and help you understand their hopes and dreams.


* From Mr Ronvoyage ( Cruise Ship passenger - USA)

My honey and I enjoyed a magical day with our guide in Hue withThuan Pham. We travel a lot and Thuan is one of the finest private tour guides we have ever used. He specializes in small groups (1 to 6 people) from either cruise ships that stop in Da Nang/Hue or you can use his services directly. This gentle man is a fountain of information about the culture, history, people, war, and attractions in Hue and Vietnam. His English is excellent and he carefully customized our tour to meet our needs and requests.

Thuan greeted us in the lobby of our Hotel, the Saigon Morin, and carefully outlined our plan to see Hue for the day. An excellent driver with his late model, immaculate, air conditioned SUV was our means of transportation between the attractions. We started with a walking tour of the Dong Ba Market, visited the massive Citadel, viewed the Thien Mu Pagoda, enjoyed the Mausoleum of King Minh Mang, and had a private river cruise on the Perfume River. Thuan asked us what type of food we would like to eat for lunch and we enjoyed a delicious Vietnamese meal at the Banana Mango Restaurant. Ice cold water was provided as needed during the day for our comfort

Thuan has excellent people skills and knows how to effectively communicate with his guests. He carries a bag full of pictures, maps, and history that helps him explain what we were seeing and why the information is significant. He told us a story about helping an American soldier find a young boy that he had befriended during the war and then reuniting the two that had met nearly fifty years ago. Thuan is more than a guide with superior knowledge of Vietnam, he is connector of people and a teacher of the culture.

We were blessed to spent the day with Thuan in Hue Vietnam. If you would like to enjoy Thuan's services too, email him without considering"

* From young lady from the US

" I booked a tour to the DMZ to discover where my uncle (who was killed in Vietnam) was stationed. Thuan was excellent. He did a lot of research in advance (and provided me with notes he had discovered about my uncle's company) and his English was very good. We visited Khe Sahn, two sites where my uncle's company was stationed, the bridge that divided north/south Vietnam, had a yummy lunch and also toured a number of relics/museums/cemeteries. I also really enjoyed seeing the countryside in the car. A+!"

TRAVELER PUBLIC COMMENT: "Thuan was an excellent tour guide. His English is good and is easily understandable. He met us at Chan May Port and toured us all the way to Hoian & Danang. He is a wealth of information and knowledgable of VN history. Most notable was our lunch in local resturant in Hoian. I'd recommend Thuan to anyone touring the Hue/Danang area. Harry from the US

TRAVELER PUBLIC COMMENT: Dinh Thuan Pham (Peter) did an excellent job and we truly enjoyed our visit to beautiful Hoi An. He was extremely knowledgable and expecially helpful, since on of our group needed to replace some broken eyeglasses. Thuan found a reliable optical shop and our friend had a new frame with new corrective lenses in less than 2 hours.Thuan is a very courteous and charming young man and we highly recommend him. Our vehicle and driver were excellent,also. Eleanor and Pablo Siegal, San Antonio, Texas
