Sophie’s Art Tour takes a closer look at the major shifts in Vietnam’s modern history through the eyes of artists. From the grand halls of the nation's fine art museums to the fresh white spaces of leading contemporary art galleries, this journey will take you from colonialism to independence and from post war to globalisation.

The tour is based on the personal experiences of artists who studied, fought, witnessed and documented major changes in the 20th and 21st century Vietnam. This tour is not just for art lovers but also for those who want to gain a deeper understanding of Vietnam.

Alongside private and public tours, we offer a comprehensive education programme for schools and universities. Clients have included Harvard University, School of Art Institute Chicago, Australia National University, Cranbrook Academy of Art, Fulbright University Vietnam, Cedar Girls' School and Yishun School, Singapore.
