I’m Kien – tour guide. I come from a rural area in the north of Vietnam . I graduated English at Hanoi University and I have been working for Topas since 2008. I guide all over Vietnam from 2-12days. During my trips I have the chance to show the culture and beauty of Vietnam and also to learn more about culture and custom from different nationalities from around the world. My hobby is photography and visiting my good friends.
My name is Chung and I am a professional English speaking tour guide. I have been working for Topas for many years and I love hiking in the mountains mainly for cultural tours. When I am not out and on the trials I like to play badminton and listen to music with my family. If you want to know more about the minorities of the mountains, I am the expert.
My name is Tuan, I am from Vinh phuc province and have been guiding for Topas for several years. I have seen many parts of Vietnam and like to travel myself. If you ever come to the mountains I will show you the five different minority groups living here, each with its own language, customs and traditions. Next to readings books and look after my daughter, I like to do sports such as badminton, volleyball or morning jogging.
