    Dien is a fantastic person. He immediately responded to my request and picked my up with his motorbike, even though he had to change his personal plans. He introduced me to his friends and we had a great time in the city centre. He helped me get around in Hanoi a lot! We had interesting conversations and laughed. His house is clean. Spending time with Dien is pure pleasure.”

    Was so glad to meet Dien! I wasn't hosted by him, but Dien kindly took me around Hanoi and places outside the city. I would like to say he's one of the most helpful people I've ever met. It's a big fun to go out somewhere in the evening and hang out with his numerous friends!!!”

    Thank you!

Can you organise custom tours?

We will gladly create custom tours to best suit your needs. We will try our best to accommodate any travel needs you may have.

Why are things cheaper?

We work directly with the local people of Vietnam. We don’t use any tour agencies or special arrangements that will drive the cost up. By cutting out the middle man that means you get to pay extremely low costs.

What’s different about Expat Local Tour?

Dien is the founder of Expat Local Tour. He started Expat Local when he realised he loved introducing traveller’s to the Vietnamese culture. He left his job working as a chemical engineer to pursue his passion for travel. Dien truly enjoys doing what he does. He believes the best way to experience Vietnam is get to know the locals personally. This is what he does best-combining locals with expats.
