Meet the Team

 Many travel companies offer Vietnam holiday with as there are popular places to visit as assual. At Contryside Adventures, We offer to our clients something more than a plane ticket, a hotel room ,a seat on the bus or visit to common places that thousand tourists do. We make your travel meaningfull, true experiences by thinking reallity, thinking local, thinking benefits for YOU as travellers and LOCALs as community and service providers.

Our Philosophy is that travelling to discover a new destination is an exchange not a commodity, we exchange local cultures,cuisines and its people. Each of tour leaders will be an embassodor who try their best to connect between travellers and the locals to create a real interaction with true experiences.

At Countryside Adventures, We want to change the way of  people look at their holiday. The way we make an adventure trip for those who travelling with us not only a vacation but it’s a trip of a lifetime.

 My adventures started in 2013 when I first came to Vietnam for 1 week holiday. I fell in love with the country immediately, the beautiful cuisine, the  relaxed social culture, mixed with the picturesque countryside and of course the welcoming people. I wanted to know the true Vietnam through  the locals. So I set out on my journey, meeting the locals who I quickly warmed to and they showed me there lives. Taking me to off the beaten tracks, to villages not visited by foreign travellers. They opened their homes with a bed, traditional cuisine and made me feel apart of this beautiful country.

 Then and there I decided this was my dream to create tours for everyone to experience the true Vietnam with the locals, just as I’ve experienced yet with organised and time filled to get the best experience possible.

 After travelling here every year since I have now moved here to live and follow my true passion and dreams. Now after 18 months living here I have built my connections and tours to offer the best of Vietnam with expert tour guides and down to earth experiences.

 Time to have an Adventure tour, with unforgetable experiences and make life long memories and friends.
