Back from an outstanding few days working on a project in the jungles and wetlands of Cuc Phuong, and Van Long, with my friend Tien. Nobody knows the wild spaces and creatures of this country like Tien does, and knowing him has so enriched my experience of Vietnam. I think this picture captures most of our time together, with Tien leading the way and pointing to something beautiful. — with Duc Tien Bui at Van Long Nature Reserve.

"Thank you so much, Par,Tien and Tui for your so professional presence.This trip was well prepared, so that we have no trouble for the end of it. Birding inThailand was quite different than in Vietnam, in order the weather, the habitats, but sincerelly, impossible to compare.You three do all your best to help us to watch as well at these foreign birds, sometimes so smoggy and fast, so small and frightened. And, sure, to book for us so nice lodge and hotel for resting. You help us to discover respectivly your own country, trying to choose the best suiting for us, with care and vigilance, always in the hope for enjoying ourself. I won't forget to tell the best on your naturalist travel agency to my friends. So on, and one more time, many thanks for all......." -- Gisèle Beaudoin

"Thanks so much to Bui Duc Tien for a marvelous 7 days Birding in North Vietnam... We had wonderful birding experiences and so many "lifers" but our moments with the Black-Faced Spoonbills, keep coming back to my mind. As we lifted off from Hanoi Airport and entered the clouds I thought about the four Spoonbills we had seen at Xuan Thuy National Park along the coastal zone of the Red River Delta. We had almost given up on finding this special species. Tien thought that perhaps the wintering birds had already left. He was the first to see one flying in the distance, recognizing it's distinct flying style. We watched the general area it landed and turned around and started walking fast. We found the bird and even better we were priveleged to observe it eating. As the day’s light was turning into a gorgeous sunset, three more Spoonbills flew in. -- Mary Willard Gallagher & Tim Gallagher

"But our luck did not stop there, and we had even better views of the endangered Collared Laughingthrush, another Dalat Plateau endemic, which is still sadly heavily trapped for the cage bird trade in a country where keeping pet birds is a die heard tradition. It took us the best part of two days to finally connect with this striking bird, possibly the most beautiful of all laughinthrushes. Kudos to local guide Duc Tien Bui for the feat." -- Yann Muzika

"We spent a trip with Mr. Bui Duc Tien during my visiting in Vietnam. He is a superb bird guide and a great host, punctual, warm and very nice. He knew birds and birding places very thoroughly and could spot birds in no time. He helped us find almost all the birds that we wanted and also many other species as well. He took us sightseeing around the town we stopped over along the way and the experiences were very pleasant too. His birding professionalism and great hospitality made our trip very very enjoyable." -- Pinit Saengkaew

"I have taken two week-long trips and several weekend trips with Mr. Tien when I was in Viet Nam teaching. He is a wonderful guide - knowledgeable about the birds and where to find them and attentive to every detail. These were the trips of a lifetime for my husband and me, and we hope to return for more birding with Mr. Tien." -- Katherine Towler
