Our story and team
Launched in early 2019, Secret Experiences quickly became the most unique thing to do in Hoi An. It was featured in The New York Times, Harper’s Bazaar, and on many popular travel blogs.
After becoming popular in Hoi An, we started expanding to other cities in Vietnam and planned to grow internationally.
While 2020 put our expansion plans on hold, we started growing online and created our Virtual Experiences. For over 2 years, we were connecting with people from all over the world who are curious about Vietnam and its culture or just want to learn how to make a good drink and meet others online!
In 2022, when Vietnam opened its borders to international travelers, we restarted our in-person experiences in Hoi An and expended to Ho Chi Minh City.
By 2023, aside from our regular experiences, we have hosted hundreds of birthdays, bachelor parties, friends and family gatherings. We organized team buildings and corporate parties for Google, Apple, Instagram, Deloitte, Airbnb, and other global teams.
We are founded and run by a small team of women. All of us have extensive travel and hospitality backgrounds and strong ties with Vietnam. We thrive to offer our guests once in a lifetime experience.
