A customized trip with Tien

Our city walk with Tien was very interesting. She answered all our questions & chose a local outdoor eatery for dinner. Tein explained how the savory cakes were made & ordered to suit my fussing eating habits. Desert was at another stop. Fresh local fruit which my friend loved. We finished the night with a beach walk. Thanks heaps Tien

Slow biking tour in Nha Trang

I arrived in Nah Trang for Lunar New Year and that at first meant it was difficult to get a guide until I contacted Tien. Tien picked me up from the ship and took me back to share breakfast with her family. Lunar new year is all about family, so after breakfast we joined the masses heading up to the Pagoda to pay the families respects to their lost loved ones.
Tien shared the importance of the place and time with me as we mingled with the locals and tourists. Then we hopped back on her scooter to head to the country and share a special place with only local people. We visited a local pagoda during which time she shared her concerns for how her beautiful part of the world is being encroached by the city.

We headed back to the city to share lunch with her family during which time I was able to taste some special delicacies prepared especially for Lunar New Year celebrations.

After lunch and saying see you later to my new Vietnamese family she took me around some of the wonderful beaches.

What an experience which captures the true concept of “Withthelocals”. Tien shared a very special experience which will live with me for ever.

Scooter city tour and countryside

Tien came to pick us up at a resort 13km from town, no problem or extra cost because of that. Took us home for coffee at her parents house, drove us all over town and outside as well. She knows everything about the area, teaches at the college, speaks english very well and is very helpfull and friendly. The food she served to us was amazing as well. Cant recommend her enough! 🙏🛵😊
