I couldn’t recommend this tour enough, Helen who works for the company was amazing. Her infinite patience and help to soothe anxieties faced when traveling with two children was incredible.

The tour was amazing and we felt safe and confident with our drivers. The homestays were excellent and everyone was kind and friendly. I was worried about the night bus but it was great and Helen helped with ensuring everything ran smoothly.

Incredible Trekking in North Vietnam
Review of: Trekking around Ha Giang 5 days 4 nights
We had an incredible 5 days trekking through the mountains and rice fields in Vietnam’s north. The scenery was spectacular! Our guide Sonny was really knowledgeable and helpful. Most of all we loved how quiet and tourist free the trails were! All of the accomodation was fantastic- a mix of home-stays and hotels. Highly recommend!

5-Day Ha Giang Province Trekking Tour
Review of: Trekking around Ha Giang 5 days 4 nights
My fiancé, sister and I booked our guided trekking tour just a few weeks out from our intended travel days, and from start to finish, Mr. Linh’s office and guiding staff went above and beyond to provide us with a safe, fun, worthwhile experience.

From the beginning, communications with the office were frequent, helpful, and consistent. Kevin’s attentiveness and attention to detail laid to rest any initial reservations or hesitance I felt about booking a
...Read Moretour with a local operator from so far away.

From the itinerary to our guide and driver: I wouldn’t have changed a thing. Thanks to the willingness of our guide Loi to spread his love and enthusiasm to everyone we encountered, he helped break down any cultural and language barriers so we could learn from and experience the beauty of the people in the villages we’d trek by. Loi is a giver. He cared for my sister when she came down with flu like symptoms, he accommodated all of our food preferences, offered us options for our days, and is just a great guy, and now a lifetime friend.

Our driver Long was also a joy to be around—and though he spoke very little English, he did everything to make us feel at home! I can not express enough praise for the work he did—we felt so safe driving up some of the craziest roads, and his kind-hearted gestures over our meals and when he didn’t have to drive will never be forgotten.

The sheer beauty of the far north is the stuff of dreams. We encountered very few tourists up there, and I hope that those who visit in the years to come will tread lightly, and respect this sacred space and the people that breathe life into it.

Thank you to everyone from Mr. Lihn’s for the trip of a lifetime.

5-day trekking in Ha Giang
Review of: Trekking around Ha Giang 5 days 4 nights
The 5-day trekking in Ha Giang was a wonderful and authentic way to experience Vietnam's north. We booked our trip via Mr Lin'h's website and all communication with sales representative Kevin was smooth. My boyfriend and I especially enjoyed the homestay experience and hospitality of the local families, and of course the scenic landscapes which we encountered during the 3 days of trekking. Our guide Minh and driver Minh made our tour an unforgettable experience. Lunches were ...Read Moreexcellent and I especially appreciate the detour which was made to get a special lunch for my boyfriend who had become sick during the tour. Our guide Minh's English was perfect and he told us everything about the places we visited and tribal people we encountered. One suggestion we would like to make to Mr Linh's adventures is to add the car travel time to the tour description, which we would have appreciated. We had a truly memorable experience in northern Vietnam thanks to Minh and Minh and would definitely recommend the tour for those looking for an experience off the beaten track! Read Less
