We did the six hour trekking tour with Xee through the stunning rice terraces in Sa Pa. An experience that we undoubtedly never forget. Xee is a very nice and good englisch-speaking guy who explained a lot and gave information about the region. We recommend the tour with Xee without limitations!

Trekking Through Rice Terraced Fields - 1Day​に参加しました。思っていたよりもがっつりトレッキングでしたが、山の中を歩くからこその素晴らしい景色でした。ガイドのシンさんはとてもジェントルマンで、トレッキング初心者の私にもとても親切にサポートしてくださいました。とても素晴らしい経験になりました。

This was my favourite hike I have done so far in Sapa! It was amazingly unique. Sapa I’m unlike anywhere else I have seen in Vietnam. Sinh, our tour guide, spoke very good English. He was very knowledgeable in Sapa history and cultures. Bonus is that he was very kind and funny! I would recommend this tour for anybody who wants to see the unique sapa landscape! It is an excellent value for the price.

After some easy and effective communication with Sinh to organise this trek, our local guide La met us at our hotel at 9am to get started. The trek was fantastic with La giving us insight into the local minorities, whilst taking us on the road less travelled and moving through the rice fields and villages. We came across very few other tourists as La wanted to take us on the quieter roads/paths. This meant that we saw small villages, families and the way of living. It felt very insightful and was very interesting. As we travelled further, taking in the beautiful scenery we stopped for lunch and enjoyed some fried noodles and vegetables. We finished the tour after crossing a river and visiting another local minority village which was a lot busier and seemed to be where a lot of the tourists went. However, La took as away from the main tracks and we took in the last of the beautiful views before being picked up and taken back to our hotel. This was a brilliant experience! Thank you to La!

We enjoyed the trek with Sinh and his brother. We hiked through corn fields, went over barbed wire fences, crossed streams and balanced our way across muddy rice terraces. Our shoes were dirty compared to other tourists taking tours from other companies... and that's exactly what we were looking for. Thank you Sinh (and baby brother) for the fun experience. Tip: Wear trekking shoes with good grip!

I was Invited to go to Sapa and enjoy the trip organized by Sinh. Expecting nothing as I had heard so many review on how Sapa is boring, I was shocked and amazed by the scenery of Sapa Sinh showed us through the tour. All the terraced rice field, the H’mong children smile, the sky, the cloud and much more than that totally rocks my mind. I am 100% sure that this is the Sapa I was looking for. Natural, untouched, beautiful and ... I guess you will have to discover that by yourself with Sinh (don’t wanna be a spoiler). Pls come and enjoy! Sinh is so far the best Sapa tour guide you need while staying in Sapa! Thank you Sinh, wish you and your family all the best wishes in the future!

We hiked 2 days one night with Tzu, Sinh's sister. We traveled several villages and slept in a cottage in Ta Van. Tzu is an amazing guide. She answers all our questions in excellent English. We had a great time with him. Thank you for sharing your culture with so passion. We recommand this tour for sure. Isabelle et Michel

Sometimes when traveling it is difficult to receive an authentic and true experience when going with a guide, but with Sinh it is truly going on an adventure with a long time friend. He was able to accommodate the trip and make it even more enjoyable than expected. I also loved how up front he was with everything and we did not have any surprises regarding trip details. We got to practice some Vietnamese, English and Spanish. He is very sweet and knowledgeable about Sapa and the surrounding areas and he really enjoyed sharing his culture with us. Thank you Sinh for making our experience in Sapa better than we could have hoped. Thank you!

Trekking with Sinh was by far the highlight of our stay in Sapa. Sinh is a Hmong guide and while you walk, he will teach you the culture of the different indigenous people of the Sapa valley. As guide he is always trying to give you the best experience and make sure you are safe (rocks are often slippery) Sinh will adapt to all kind of needs. You can do a small trek or, like us, a one day 20km trek. You can even do homestay in a village. You can't go wrong with Sinh
