    Hello everyone! My name is Hieu and I am a tour guide in Ha Long Bay and Cat Ba island. I have a travel office in Halong city and I am a host of a homestay in Halong city, too. I organize adventure tours around Halong Bay, Catba Island and Ninh Binh. I love traveling, making new friends and exploring new areas.

    I am looking for travelers who speak fluent English, to help me and support me in my travel office, eco homestay and during my adventure tours around Halong Bay and Catba Island.

    I need volunteers that like to interact with customers in my homestay and travel office and help me with the English language. I also need someone that can occasionally help me with computer related tasks, such as fixing my English grammar mistakes in tour itineraries and help me with social media. I currently only use Facebook, and I have plans to set up a website, so if you think you can help me come up with a good online strategy that would be highly appreciated! If you like photography or have video-editing skills then this will be a big plus too. It would be great if you can make some nice pictures and videos of my tours so that I can use some of this as content for my social media and website.

    During tours you accompany me to have fun with customers, generally just making a good time with them. Every tour has local employed staff on board, such as a tour guide, captain and someone that prepares lunch/dinner, but not everyone speaks fluent English and sometimes we are very busy. You can have fun with the customers, help them making pictures, join them with swimming, fishing, hiking, snorkeling, playing with monkeys, enjoying beach dinners and watching beautiful sunsets. It's not hard work, just a lot of laughs and a good way to enjoy Halong and Catba!
