Meet Spring Vietnam Tours

Spring Vietnam Tours

Spring and Hiếu (pronounced almost like Hugh) are a couple who have been leading tours for more than 5 years in Vietnam. Since team up with Heygo, they have decided to live stream the whole country by traveling to a different city every month. These live streaming tours are a condensed version of Vietnam's untold history and culture from their Vietnamese perspective. They both love history, history made them realize how grateful they are to have a better life than their people did. They have it 1000 times easier than their older folks did. For them, Vietnamese people were the strongest, smartest, and most courageous people back then. Book their virtual trip and you just might feel the same. They are always finding new ways to do it better than last time! Spring and Hiếu are here to give you value and make you relax a little. When not guiding, Spring loves lifting weights, listening to K-pop, and watching Korean dramas. Hieu loves doing yoga taught by his teacher Sadhguru and reading.
