The first stop of the tour
a Pagoda Orphanage:
where it shelters and cares
for over 130 abandoned, orphaned or street
children. They range from several months to
9 years of age. The children of the
orphanage are taken care of by a group of
Buddhist nuns and volunteers. Their goal is
to provide the children with a safe and
caring environment which lessens their
misfortune and gives their lives greater
purpose and meaning. Being a private
organization, the orphanage is trying to
provide its children food, shelter, health
and education. The nuns and volunteers at
the orphanage have devoted their lives for
the wonderful mission - helping the orphans.
The village path leads us to
the home of one family who
weave mats from rushes
which grow abundantly in the
surrounding area. Two people
working together will weave
just four mats in a day,
which will be taken to the
local market and traded for
food and other essentials.

Mr Dung Pham
(English French speaking)
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
great, full day at a reasonable price
We did a
daylong trip inland that included the orphanage (great
and bring things to them), weaving (fun, small shop,
nice people, hands-on), hat-making (at a small family
hut with their grandma), rice paper factory (VERY cool,
always wondered how they make that spring roll wrap so
thin), The National Park (Alligator feeding/holding,
Ostrich riding, bear/bird feeding, hot springs and water
falls), lunch provided was Ostrich and Alligator meat
and then finishing at the temple in Nha Trang. A great
full day. Well coordinated, organized and narrated by
Dung Pham with energy and enthusiasm. Nicely done!
Private Discovery Tour
The tour was
enjoyable and educational. Pham arrived to pick us up at
our hotel with a car and a driver. He brought us to see
things in Nha Trang that were not too touristy, and he
made an effort to stay one step ahead of other tour
groups so that we could really enjoy the places we
On our tour, we toured a village in the countryside,
before we went to Yang Bay where we got to feed Asiatic
bears and crocodiles, ride ostriches and soak in hot
springs. Pham is friendly and he communicates very well
in English and several other languages. Best of all, he
seemed genuinely surprised when we tipped him at the end
Discovery tour with Pham
We are a
group of 4 adults from Australia who found Phams tour on
trip advisor. It proved to be everything that was
advertised much to our surprise. Pham replied to emails
promptly and emailed us before the trip to confirm out
booking. he told us to bring swimmers and a towel for
the waterfall and hot springs. he picked us up at the
agreed time and took us to a traditional bakery, a rug
making workshop, rice paper factory and a little shack
where a woman in her eighties and her her daughter made
conical hats. The highlight was the orphanage where we
donated school supplies, koala pins and lollies. The
children were delightful and sang to us. We headed onto
the waterfall park where one of our group rode an
ostrich. We had a lovely lunch on a lake. The best part
of the trip was Pham's stories and his knowledge. he
also made it easy by paying all the people at our stops
and the admission fee ate the Waterfall park so we
didn't have to pay for anything including lunch. This
made it less awkward as we wouldn't have known how much
to give. Pham's driver made us feel comfortable and safe
in the air conditioned mini bus. he also bought along
bottled water to quench our thirst. I would recommend
Extremely enjoyable experience for the whole family
We are a
family of 6. With kids 8,15,17 and a grandmother 71 yrs.
We booked Pham for a discovery tour last week. He
promptly picked us up from our hotel and took us to all
the sights listed in his itinerary. It was an awesome
day. We saw so much and weren't pressured into buying
anything from the places he took us. He made sure we
were happy and catered for the whole day. We could also
understand him which was a plus as other tour guides in
Saigon we used made the day exhausting trying to
understand their broken English. He kept us interested
all the time and really knows the region as he's a
local. Enjoyed meeting the kids at the orphanage and
took a bag of clothes and stationery for them. Loved the
mat weaving, conical hats by a family of ladies who
welcomed us into their home. Loved the fresh rolls from
the local baker the Eco park was nice if you can put
behind you that it errs on the side of animal cruelty.
But that is the norm in Vietnam. My kids got to ride an
ostrich which is something they will never forget. Lunch
was altered to a different venue as we don't eat pork or
crocodile which was no problem for Pham. Hot water
mineral baths were a nice way to end the day. We would
love to spend more time with Pham if ever back in Nha
tour was fantastic for 4 adults and 2 children (B7 & G4)
suits all ages.
We rang Pham
and booked for 6, he charged for 5. Pham covered all
outlays for the day.
Visited a bakery, hat maker, orphanage, rice paper
factory, water falls, hot springs spa, crocodiles,
ostrich rides, bears, pig races, lunch, drinks and mini
bus all included.
The kids enjoyed it as much as the adults.
I couldn't recommend Pham more highly. If you are
looking for a good day out, this is it.
Fantastic tour for children
day out - book with this man! He organised a private car
trip for me and my two young children. He promised a day
they would enjoy and it was the highlight of our trip.
We went to a nature park about an hour from Nha Trang.
While there we got to swim in beautiful hot springs and
in a waterfall, ride an ostrich, feed crocodiles and
bears, see pig racing and eat fabulous food on a lake.
Lots of tours must go to this place but I strongly
recommend going with Mr Pham - he took us to lots of
interesting places enroute including small businesses,
the pagoda orphanage, the Buddha statue. Pham's English
is fantastic and he worked so hard, running ahead to get
the electric train sorted for us, constantly checking if
we needed more drinks. The hot springs were the end of
our busy day and he let us stay there as long as we
wanted. The price was inclusive and we didn't even buy
our own drinks when swimming. Communication was very
good by email and he arrived early to pick us up and
waited politely for us to finish breakfast. Our only
regret was that the rest of our family missed the trip
as they were diving
Discovery Tour was fantastic; not sure what Rayndpat is
on about - obviously great sight seeing, knowledgeable
and friendly guide and solid itinery aren't high on
I actually cancelled the tour the night before the we
were scheduled to meet up because of bad stomach pains
from dodgy food purchased at Vinpearl. Dung was fine
with the late cancellation and didn't make a fuss.
I was feeling much better in the morning so I rang him
at 6.00am to see if we could go on the tour and Dung put
us straight back in and he met us at our hotel at
The entire day was great and we got to experience and
see things that we otherwise wouldn't have.
The orphanage was eye opening and was something special.
We gave the kids some small gifts and treats, and at the
end of it made a donation to the orphanage - there was
no pressure to donate.
We did the tour with a 12 and 5 year old and they both
loved the day and got to do so many things in the one
day - from feeding and holding crocodiles to pig racing
and ostrich riding to hot spring bath.
The lunch was good and there was so much of it for the
four of us.
My wife and I are both Vietnamese and migrated to
Australia more than 30 years ago and this is our first
trip back to Vietnam. What a fantastic way to learn
about the country you left as a child.
Overall, a great day and money well spent. Dung is a
fantastic guide - friendly and knowledgeable , and made
sure you enjoyed the experience
great day private country tour in Nha Trang
We had a
great day on the private tour visiting the country side,
orphanage, temple, hat making, hot springs, animal park
and authentic vietnamese food for lunch. My 9 years old
son loved cuddling the crocodile, riding ostrich, bird
and bear feeding and the hot springs pool. We also loved
visiting the orphanage and the buddhist temple.
The tour guide was quite a character, funny,
entertaining, mix of Vietnamese tradition and modern
life. Perfect for a cultural tour to get to know
Vietnamese modern / old culture.
The tour was well organised, he picked us up from our
villa at 8AM on time and we returned exactly at 4PM as
promised. The tour included all fees to parks and
events, water and lunch. I thought it was value for
Be open minded and you will enjoy!
