Photography tours

Since 2013 I run photography tours in Hoi An, Vietnam. At first under the name Hoi An Photo Walks, but in 2017 the name changed into Photo Voyager. When you click on any tour you will be transferred to that website.

Sunrise in town

Catch the first light in Hoi An Ancient town, experience river life and many small yellow alleys.

We go into a local neighbourhood and see how the Vietnamee people live.

Country side with farm life and hopefully a splendid sunset.

How to take photos when there is a lack of light.

Anything goes. What would you like?

We go to a fishing village to witness the trading of fish, with the best light of the day.

You don’t need a fancy camera to take splendid photos. See what you can do with your phone!



On all tours I bring you to interesting places and I help you with all your needs. Apart from choosing the right settings and composition I will also show how easy it is to take photos of people who are not part of your own culture.

Some of the testimonials

I reached out to Pieter for a private photography tour. He was very knowledgeable, could capture photographs that only a good artist could and was great company. We did a combination of alleyways and landscapes. I learnt a lot from my session with him and feel more confident about my approach with using more advanced cameras. Lastly, he is a wonderful person and is sure to positively impact your day in more ways than one. Thanks Pieter!

I had an excellent time with Pieter. We went out on 3 outings together, and I can fully endorse his photo tours. Pieter is a wonderful guy, good company and I can see very committed in doing his absolute best to give you an enjoyable, informative and very memorable experience. He is a great observer looking at all the elements, fully understanding the nuances of light and shade and how to approach and frame the shot. He discusses photographic techniques and the different ways of looking at a scene.

I loved this experience! You get amazing tips and insights into both photography AND Vietnamese life.
Pieter is incredibly gifted and and has a lovely and patient manner when imparting his knowledge.
It was a great balance between technique, composition and mindset. I went in a little anxious about my skill level but it doesn’t matter at all. He’s great at reassuring you, suggesting new angles to take photos from and most importantly helping you to confidently interact with locals and capture moments. It was lovely walking through the village and farmland in golden hour and cruising down the Thu Bon River. Thanks Pieter for my most memorable Vietnam experience.
