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.

I appreciated Hieu's enthusiasm and the tour, but I did not like him talking about history that he has no firsthand knowledge of and thap apparently he has not studied in depth. He spoke for the country, he said, naming Viet Nam's 5 best friend nations but not giving any source for this. He said all fellow citizens were so glad the USA left Vietnam--and I am too--but what he does not know is that the US was there because they were asked to help and to promote democracy. As a US citizen, I opposed being in Vietnam, but I also could see both sides of the picture. Actually, any piece of history has way more than two sides and for him to talk as a representative of his country without knowing and sharing the history makes me not want to tour with him again.

Always enjoyable with this young couple. It is insightful to begin to understand the culture in Vietnam, and see the people.
