I really enjoyed the trip to the Fansipan. The hike is not too difficult and should be manageable for those who do sports sometimes. My guide was super friendly and helpful.

The 2 days trip was great! Tu, our guide was very nice, always smiling and answering questions. We have seen many amazing landscapes, far from most of tourists. We also slept in a local house with Khai’s family who welcomed us and cooked delicious meals for us. Khai the owner of the company was also very kind! I recommande this company for a trek !

My husband and I booked a tour covering 7 days from Sapa to Bac Ha to Ha Giang and finally Ba Be. We were very fortunate to have Khai as our guide. He is very knowledgeable and such a nice person as well. He welcomed any questions. We especially loved that he was quietly spoken and had a lovely personality. We noticed many other guides who spoke loudly and at length and this made us appreciate Khai all the more. He was attentive without being intrusive and always looked out for our interests. And he was great on our various walks and always there with a helping hand when negotiating rough terrain. He is a wonderful guide and if you are fortunate to book his services you will not regret it. Thanks Khai for a wonderful week.

We had such a wonderful time with Chan today. She is a very funny, enthusiastic and curious young lady with many good stories to tell about her life, the people around her and her culture. The tour was interesting and the landscapes were absolutely beautiful. A highlight of our trip in Vietnam. Very recommendable!
