    One of the highlights of our trip! This was definitely one of the highlights from our trip. Not only is Sapa and the views stunning but our guide Npaus was absolutely awesome. She was funny, informative and spoke great English. We were given the option to to a trek up into the mountains or one in the valley. We opted for the more difficult mountain route. Npaus gave us as many breaks as we needed and they did provide a bottle of water. But I suggest bringing additional water as it’s hard and hot. Walking through the local villages was so cool and the way they live and interact is unique. We booked everything through Sinh who was very responsive and followed through to make sure we had all questions answered. Really such a unique and wonderful experience. And our guide confirmed that the money goes directly to the locals, an even bigger plus. Thanks for a fabulous experience!

    Gorgeous, gorgeous views throughout the trip with a really friendly and knowledgeable guide! Sinh was awesome 🙂 The trek is for sure moderate to challenging so make sure to give yourself the next day to relax. Also, if it rains the day before, there's lots of potential for slipping and sliding, so make sure to wear clothes and bags you don't mind getting dirty. The sliding actually made it more fun and the trek is incredibly worth getting a little messy. After the trek, we had a great lunch (included + you can buy drinks extra) and walked around the villages. Again, Sinh was very knowledgeable about the local ethnic minority being a local himself! All in all, excellent trip, would definitely recommend!

    Me and my mum went to sapa to do the trek. From the moment he met us, Sinh was friendly, happy, and so welcoming! Our group - just as amazing! Sinh really gave us a brilliant experience. He took us on the most beautiful trek, we got to see the way of life, the stunning scenery, and he welcomed us into his family home. He shared so much information with us, and he was so knowledgable, yet he shared it with fun, and always with a happy smile. The kindest and sweetest person. Thankyou so very much for our time in sapa, you really are one of a kind.

    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

    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

    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!

    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!

    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!

    The trek was a challenging and an overall exciting experience. We went across a path that was least travelled.The guide was well informed and went a steady pleasant pace. Really loved every aspect of it.
