Local guide profile - Nguyen Binh from Saigon

“ I've been working as a local guide for Travel Indochina for 12 years now and it never gets boring. Having lived in Saigon for since 1996, I’ve seen it grow and change, and in this job I get to see more of it than most people. I just love to show our clients the places that I’ve discovered.

There are plenty of highlights, but my favorite part of the job is when I can show them part of my town that many tourists miss. They get a much better understanding of the Saigon the locals know. Sometimes our guests have a specific interest in food or photography or something else. With our small group size I can really get to know each one and help them get the most out of the city. I especially love showing them my favorite places to eat! ”

Western tour leaders

As residents of Asia, our Western tour leaders understand the region like no one else. This select group of intrepid individuals are valued by our clients who consistently award them with satisfaction ratings above 98%.

Tour leader profile - Paula Harrigan

“ In the years that I've been working for Travel Indochina, I’ve been lucky to lead tours across all our Asian destinations. Being a tour leader is great fun. I meet lovely people from all over the world and we share great travel experiences. I’m fortunate enough that some of our travelers come back again and again, and I get the opportunity to see them in different countries.

Our travelers come from such a diverse range of backgrounds, cultures, professions and ages, and it’s lovely when they all come together and mix and mingle, and often make lifelong friendships. I think being a tour leader is a little like a duck swimming on a lake. On the surface everything is smooth and calm, but underneath we are paddling like crazy to make sure that our clients are having the best experience they can. The smoother it looks on the surface, the better I’m doing my job. ”
