Bao Loc, Founder

Hello friends, you can call me “Loc.” I am a native of Saigon and genuinely love my city. I founded Xin Chào Private Vietnam Tours in 2008.  Since then, I have had the fortune of working with an amazing team. Together, we strive to constantly offer the best experiences of our city and country to our clients. It was back in 2005, when I was working at a local restaurant in downtown Saigon, that I began helping travelers find their way around the city. From there, I also was able to help business people and expats with their issues navigating life in the city. I soon discovered that I had a knack in connecting with and helping foreigners visiting or living in Saigon. My passion is helping visitors to Saigon discover my city, my country, and the world-renowned Vietnamese hospitality. It is my hope that you will enjoy your stay in Vietnam and leave you with a desire to soon return.

Xin Chào Travelers! My name is Diem, but you can call me, “Dim Sum.” I have been working as a tour guide since 2011.

My name is Dung (which means “beauty” in Vietnamese). I’ve been married for 6 years and have two beautiful daughters. I have a major in Tourism, and I have been working as a tour guide for the past 8 years. At first, when I had graduated, I just guided Vietnamese people around the country. After about a year, I realized that I love the beauty of my nation, and I want to show that to the whole world and also learn learn new things from other countries and cultures. So, I decided to learn English and to become an English speaking tour guide. I have just earned a degree in English at Ho Chi Minh City University of Social Sciences & Humanities. Now, as a licensed professional tour guide, I pride myself on my ability to add personal touches to every tour I conduct. It is very important to me that my clients return to their homeland with happy experiences about my country. Having 2 daughters, I am experienced with kids – If you are travelling with your children, you can trust me to make you and your children feel comfortable.
