Vietnam Galcation

So lucky we found Pham. We are a group of six friends traveling thru Vietnam and visited Pham with a list of places we wanted to see in Nha Trang. He was so accommodating with our list, planned a 2 day private tour including transport, hotel pickup, price up front and lunch. We had the best time - Pham is extremely humorous and knowledgeable on the history and culture of Nha Trang with the occasional far fetched comical story which always roped us in and always ended with us all in stitches..Thank you Pham, without you we would never have seen and experienced such a beautiful city without you. All us girls would highly recommend Pham for a small group private tour to see Nha Trang in a relaxed, fun and informative way. Thanks Pham from your 6 Aussie Girls xx

The tour was very very good. Pham was an amazing guide, who took really good care of us. We had a wonderful and fun day visiting the area outside of Nha Trang. We highly recommend everyone to take the tour. Pham made sure that my mother that cannot see still got the full experience, being feel and touch.
Don't miss the tour!!

We had an absolutely super day with Dung Pham tours going out into the countryside, seeing various local industries and taking a boat ride on the river. To cap it all, we had lunch in a riverside restaurant of local food that was delicious and plentiful and it was included in the price! our driver/guide could not have been more helpful enabling me (I use a wheelchair) to participate fully in the tour. We would all thoroughly recommend this company

Dung Pham is a very professional tour guide in his country that has been sought after by many foreign dignitaries worldwide. Members on this board should be honored to be given his assistance and expertise. I have researched and was provided references before I made arrangements for a tour with his company. He comes highly recommended by all in the know.   MaseratiCruiser

I wish to give the highest commendation to Dung Pham’s River Tours which we did in March 2017.  I organised a group of people (8) to do this tour the day the Princess ship was in port at Nha Trang.  I found Dung’s tour from searching the internet to discover the best one day tour in Nha Trang, and the comments for this tour were plentiful and exceedingly good.


During all the preparation time in the preceding few months, I needed to check a number of things with Dung, including the addition of more people, and the thing that amazed me, was that I always had a reply back in a matter of hours.  The careful attention to people’s requests was delightful when one is planning a tour.  I can not commend Dung high enough for his professional attitude.  Any one who deals with Dung Pham will find that same commendable response.


When the tour day came, all in my group except me (the organiser) went on shore but I was held up by a mishap in the Princess organisation.  Dung collected the 7 people for the tour and sent them on their way with a tour guide, but he waited for me with a taxi until I could get off the ship.  That took nearly an hour.  How many tour companies would do that?  I was so deeply impressed at the decency of this man and his attitude.  He took me to join the group and called in on us during the day to check all was going well (which it was).


His one day River Tour is very well described on the internet, and arrangements made with him are flawless.  We had the very best day any group could have.  We did everything that was mentioned in the description – (Inspirational Pagoda Orphanage, Bakery, Sedge Mat Weaving, Amitabha Buddha statue at a height of 68 meters, Rice paper - Noodles making ( phở ), bánh ướt, bánh hỏi, Conical hat making, 200 year old ancient house, Lunch at a riverside restaurant).


If you are searching for what to do in Nha Trang, you must do this tour. You will not fine a more capable man than Dung Pham.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour with you and you were very professional and courteous to everyone in our group. My wife kept bragging on the care and respect you and your lovely wife took assisting the elderly (especially the lady with the walker, we all affectionately called 'Mum')  the entire day. We all hated to hear that you lost $500 on the previous tour because of inclement weather and the ship's tenders not being allowed to dock.  We would like to add this was our favorite tour of our trip


Ron & DeAnna Webber

Hello Mr Dung Pham
We thoroughly enjoyed our day with you and the rest of the group.  Especial highlights was the river-side lunch and the river cruise and the morning tea in the 'local's house.  The mat weaving and the conical hat making were excellent too, as was the embroidery factory and the rice noodle factory. 
It was all excellent, as was your and your wife's care for us all and my elderly mother (the lady with the walker called 'Mum"). I have posted a good recommendation for your tour and hope this helps with ongoing business - which you most honorably deserve. I will also do what I can to help you recover the lost port fees for the previous trip. Please accept our very best wishes for a happy and prosperous future,

Dear Dung Pham,

Everyone enjoyed your tour very much and all had a good time. Thank you for a good day and I will surely recommend your company as it was from other fellow travellers who had used you before that I got our email address from

Once again thank you  Mr Kim with a group of 43 tourists  ( The first time with us )

Dear Dung Pham, 
THANKS AGAIN FOR A WONDERFUL TRIP. EVERYONE THOROUGHLY enjoyed you tour. Everyone couldn't stop talking
about it and what a good day they had. I was very glad everyone had a good time. I was very tired the next day as it was a big day for me now that I find it difficult to walk because of the stroke but I wouldn't have missed doing it for the world. Thank you once again for the gift. Say hello to your wife for me. She is very kind. Hopefully next time I come you will have a new addition to the family.
Mr Kim with a group of 44 tourists  ( The second time with us )

A good trip had by all 44 pax in Nha Trang and very inexpensive tour. Dung and his wife were very helpful to the aged or disabled people which really showed how kind these people were. I highly recommend this tour company as twice round we were given a day to remember

I have Dung Pham now for three tours - the only one I use when I travel to Nha Trang - and I have always been happy with his service. His staff are excellent, their knowledge of the area and the locals is superb. I have always booked a group for these tours and know Everyone will have a fantastic time. If you want a great day out with fabulous attractions, great food and great company, Dung is the man to use. Mr Kim with a group of 9 tourists  ( The third time with us )

We were on the same tour with wristband and we are in total agreement. Pham is such an engaging person who provides great service in his tours. It was raining when we got there and he even provided us with yellow plastic bags to put on our feet so our shoes wouldn't get mucky as we walked about. I have fond memories of us all walking around with yellow bags on our shoes. The local people had a laugh on two with us!! The cruise line shortened our day in port by an hour (it was already a short day there) and yet Pham got us to all the places we were supposed to go. Must have been a hard thing to do with 21 adults!!!
You won't be sorry going with him.

No one can take care of their clients like what we have done for our clients because we want you to be happy and to come back with us again

A photo of Mr Dung Pham and his beloved tourists with big smiles is worth a thousand words

We used this tour company last Dec. The 38 of us on the tour all agreed it was one of the best private tours we have ever taken. On the top is a photo of our group.
