Not just a tour

There would be no fun in running simple photography tours to take people on location. We are teachers and there are no tours without comprehensive photography workshops

An ethical approach

Teaching Travel Photography is also teaching about the art of approaching people with respect, creating a two way interaction with our subjects

10+ years of experience

We have mastered the art of teaching photography to anyone since 2009, allowing us to design the best photography tours and workshops

About Hoi An Photo Tours & Workshops

Part of the Hall of fame of tours in Hoi An

The most comprehensive group photography tours

Even though travelling in a group doesn't allow to dedicate ourselves entirely to you, experience has taught us to manage your expectations as well as the ones from the other participants.
Every tour will start with a conversation with all participants, getting to know them, their current level in photography and what they are looking for.

Customize your own photography workshop

We offer all kinds of tailored photography workshops, and we can easily tailor more for your needs.
As we are specialized in the area of central Vietnam (and the rest of South East Asia) we can build a workshop that will fulfil your needs as a student, finding the best locations and the best subjects for you.
Don't be shy, contact us if you want something built just for you!

People Power

Our Guides are the Secret Weapon behind our Success.

Surround yourself with professionals

After over 10 years of experience we know what makes a great photography tour: great locations at the best time of the day, great teachings through the tour and a lot of fun!

Our guides aren't professional photographers in need of making some extra cash. They are dedicated tutors who see the teaching of photography as a full-time activity.

There would be no point in running tours to the same locations and not building strong relationship with the local people. Our guides are all gifted with language skills and can easily interact with the people, making it easy for you to compose your image and have a fun time.

Not only the photographic experience, Hoi An photo tour and workshop offers an immersion into the real Vietnam, thanks to our experienced guides.

Eco Adventures

Compared to any photography workshops around the World, we are one of the most affordable ones! Spend half a day travelling around the countryside and learning photography for $50? Nowhere else you will be able to find that kind of offer.

Low Footprint

Travelling and taking photos of people can be something quite gruesome if not done properly. We have an impact on the people wherever we go, and our goal is to make this impact a positive one.

Locals Interaction

Not just a photography tour, we are also travelling in a smart way to bring you the best travel experience. And this can only be done by working closely with the people we meet and building relationship with them.


For the past 10 years, Hoi An Photo Tour has received the best feedback from clients around the world, as well as a Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor EVERY SINGLE YEAR!
