We just finished the 3 day / 2 night trekking tour with Sinh and it was awesome!! Highlight of our trip so far. He is an experienced guide and is extremely genuine so it’s easy to becomes friends fast. He does a really good job communicating the trip plan and schedule each day so you feel your in good hands the whole time. The food and homestays were both very good as well! He also will teach you about his family, the plant and animal life, and the different ethnic minorities that call Sapa home along the way. I highly recommend his tour company to anyone that wants to avoid the crowds and experience the amazing views and villages around Sapa. Tips: buy rain boots in town as the trails are very muddy in the winter, pack some snacks or buy some along the way to carry you between the provided meals (which were really good)

This was a really great experience, going on a local trek with Sinh through the majestic and wondrous area around Sapa. Sinh is a truly thoughtful, knowledgeable and positive host who encouraged questions. I took that encouragement to heart and probably asked dozens of questions about the countryside, the flora and fauna, the Hmong people of this area and even about how he met his beautiful and gracious wife who accompanied us on the trek. I would highly recommend Sinh as a guide and his trek as an amazing experience.

We did a 2 day, 1 night trek with Sinh and had a truly splendid experience. Sinh met us at the Sapa city center (Notre Dame cathedral), introduced himself and his Wife who is currently his "training guide" explained the trip itinerary and we set off on a beautiful adventure. The terrain was a mixture of rugged side hill trails, small dirt roads, paved (yet remote) scooter trails, and viaduct paths. We never grew tired of the views, unclose encounters with vietnamese farm life was a pleasant surprise, meals were everything we could have hoped for, the homestay was clean, the shower was hot, everybody was friendly. You will notice that Sapa is the center of massive tourist development by huge corporations. It was really cool to support Sinh in his small business entrepreneurship. For a kid who grew up without electricity, in a family of rice farmers it is pretty impressive that he learned english, and built a trekking tour company from scratch. If you would rather hike than sit in a shuttle bus, this is the experience for you.

I did 2days trekking at Sapa with Sinh. It was a light and easy trekking we did due to raining and the road was so muddy. It was unfortunate due to rain and the view was so cloudy. Sinh is a good local guide and can speak English. We also have Chu follow us along the trek and she also helped me during my trekking.
