About Us

Bui Duc Tien - Founder and Bird Leader

Bui Duc Tien is a native of Cuc Phuong National Park. He spent his childhood exploring the area around the forest, and later studied to become a biologist. He began his career as a tour guide for the Ecotourism & Environmental Education Center of Cuc Phuong. When he left that job 16 years later it was with the dream of creating Vietnam Pitta Tours, a company dedicated to birdwatching all over Vietnam.

Today Tien has over 10 years of experience, and is knowledgable about birding sites across the entire country. When he is not guiding he usually spends his time going on research trips to discover new locations, and to find reliable sites for hard-to-find species. He also enjoys working with and mentoring many other up-and-coming Vietnamese bird guides (some of whom also guide for Vietnam Pitta Tours). 

Xuan Thanh - Birding Guide

Xuan Thanh is one of these guides. Thanh began his work in the tourism sector as a driver, and after years of hard work was able to open his own tranportation and touring company based in Hanoi. Thanh is an avid birder on his own time, and has been co-guiding and leading birding trips for several years. He is particularly adept at finding the highlight species of northern Vietnam.

Together Tien and Thanh are committed to giving birders the best experience possible when they visit VIetnam. Whether you have one night free, or are looking to plan an extended trip for a large group of people, they can help make sure that you have a successful trip. Please contact them, and they will do everything they can to tailor an itinerary that fits your timeline, target species and budget!
