Wilson Nguyen and Team Local Experience Private tour guide in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City - Vietnam

Wilson Nguyen and Team Local Experience

Guide profile:

From a young age I had always dreamed of becoming a Vietnam tour guide to show people the beauty of Vietnam and after extensive English lessons I am proud to say I now offer a range of guiding services to suit your travel plans. Many people that have experienced Vietnam private tours with me have said that I’m a friendly and happy character which is why they call me “Nam Smile”. Hanoi is my home and with over 7 years experience I can help make your stay in Vietnam comfortable and trouble free whilst feeling like you are travelling with a friend.

My experiences began many years ago as a waiter working in a restaurant for English guests where I could practice my language skills on a regular basis and during my time working, I realized that I should pursue a career in travel and tourism. Shortly after my summer working as a waiter I was granted the opportunity to work as a major tour guide for a university in Hanoi and alongside this, I had secured a position 10km away to work with a non-profit organization as their international coordinator. Working with volunteers every day gave me more chances to practice my language skills and within 3 months I was comfortable having long conversations in English.

I have travelled through 53 of all 63 provinces in Vietnam and also visited destinations in Laos, Cambodia and Thailand many times over the past few years. Choosing me as your Vietnam private guide means I can assist with finding unique places to add to your itinerary whilst experiencing the country as a local without the hassle of translating or strenuous planning. Plus, a wide range of Vietnam private tours are available from the rural Vietnamese countryside to the historic capital and we can customize your Vietnam private tour to cater for your style of travel and budget. Alongside ordinary travel guiding I can also provide my services for business clients, educational visits, airport transfers and interpretation.

Vietnam is a beautiful, vibrant place to visit with lots of experiences to offer and with my assistance I hope to provide you with the best possible welcome and memories of your stay that will last a lifetime.

This was my second trip to Vietnam and through Viator, I contact Wilson. We asked him to show us as much as possible of Hanoi on foot that we wouldn't see on our own or where we had previously visited. The trip was great, we wandered the streets seeing and hearing so much about the life of those living in this great city and learnt so much-Wilson is thorough with facts and information and was extremely helpful with planning the rest of our time in Vietnam. I would highly recommend him as a guide

Wilson arranged our trip to Hanoi and Hanoi Bay with very short notice and fast response. He's informative, knowlegeable and take a good care of us. Halong Bay was fantastic,transfer to Halong Bay, private cruise, speedboat ride to Cat Ba island where we stayed overnight. Next day we had a small fishing boat to take us to Lan Ha bay, and went kayaking and visited Monkey Island. Then we took the bus and ferry to Hai Phong for our flight to Danang. Wilson help us fix my wife purse after the tour

This being our first time in Vietnam we wanted to hire a guide to get the full experience - without being suckered into the normal overcrowded tourists traps. Wilson absolutely provided an experience above and beyond our expectation - he was extremely knowledgeable, outgoing, accommodating, and best of all he is one genuinely nice gentleman.I highly recommend you book a tour in Hanoi with him! 5* service all the way! Also he arranged additional activities and take a good care even after the tour

The Perfume Pagoda really is a marvel deep within the mountains. From the towering trees, forested jungle and peaceful rivers, this day trip was the one we won't forget!Wilson shared with us many different interesting facts about Vietnam,like some of the differences between societies in the north and south, their different attitudes towards jobs and living, and we shared information about home country too. Wilson is a great guide, extremely friendly, personal able, helpful with excellent English

I could not have been luckier to find Wilson as a guide. From the moment he arrived with water and a poncho (it was a very wet day!) and a big welcome smile, I knew I was in for a great day. Not only is Wilson kind, funny and considerate his knowledge is amazing. He took me to so many attractions and at each and every one he talked me through the history, shared his own insights and thoughts and made sure I had photos and time to take everything in.
