Tour Overview

Sophie’s Art Tour takes a closer look at Vietnam through the eyes of artists. The tour is based on the personal experiences of artists who studied, fought, witnessed and documented major changes in 20th and 21st century Vietnam. This tour is not just for art lovers but for all those who want to gain a deeper understanding of Vietnam’s modern and contemporary history.

Testimonial from the Sinwell family:
“Sophie, we wanted to write and thank you so much for customizing a tour for our family in Saigon. We were thoroughly enchanted by your art tour. As parents we were especially pleased by how you guided our four daughters through the country’s 20th century history, then made it come alive with the specific paintings you chose. One month later, our girls actively point out propaganda art and combat art, and still identify works they saw with you at the Fine Arts Museum. We all felt so much more connected with the city after spending the afternoon with you. I wish we could replicate our experience with you in other cities on our travels. You know you’ve succeeded when a 9 year old says the art tour was one of her favorite things in Saigon!”
All the very best,
Abigail and Andrew Sinwell
