Sisi was a wonderful tour guide for our half day trek through the landscape around Sa Pa. Her english is excellent and we learned a lot about the local culture and way of life. We were a bit unfortunate with the weather (fog and overcast) but still enjoyed walking through the rice terraces and villages. We can definitely recommend a guided tour with Sisi - it was the highlight of our trip to Sa Pa.

Apart from how much polite and nice Sisi is, she is one of the best guide that I’ve encountered in Vietnam so far, she knows all the places and she is so flexible adjusting the plan according to the weather and our preferences, 6 days was really nice with her and she is much better than I expected. Highly recommended and a must try guide in SaPa

I had an amazing day in Sa Pa’s nature thanks to Sisi. It didn’t feel like walking around with a guide, it actually felt more like a day with a good friend ! Her English is more than good and you can ask her everything you want to know about the Hmong people but also about the Vietnamese culture in general. The trekking route wasn’t too exhausting (5h), doable for everyone but really nice ! I would recommend Sisi as a tour guide to everyone who is interested in trekking through Sa Pa’s nature (which is beautiful!). Thanks again Sisi! :)

Sadly Sisi couldn’t do our tour as she was already booked so we were given one of her guides called Yao. This was not a disappointment at all as Yao was so friendly and funny, with lots to talk about and inform you throughout the day. Our trek took us through the most beautiful scenery I have ever witnessed, and was full of such interesting lessons on culture and Yao’s personal daily life. We had a lovely lunch and met local villagers where we bought handmade souvenirs to remind us of such an amazing day. Thankyou Yao, and Sisi for our favourite highlight of this lovely country.
