Let’s take an adventure!
Hi, my name is Nguyen Duc Dien. I live in downtown Ha Noi, 30 mins away from the Old Quarter. My passions are travel and people, so I started Recycle Tours to help you experience Vietnam like a local!

2. We want you to see the real Vietnam.
3. We will help you travel in a local’s footsteps.

Experience the real Vietnam

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.
