10 day trek in Ha Giang, Dong Van, Ba Be, Bac Ha
Review of: Northern Loop Adventure 11 days 10 nights
My wife and I just completed a 10-day trek with Mr Linh's Adventures, traveling in the Ha Giang region of North Vietnam, staying in a combination of homestays and hotels, trekking through minority villages, rice paddies, markets, etc. The trip was excellently organized, our guide was knowledgeable, our driver (when needed) was safe, the views were stunning, the food very tasty and the accommodations distinctly memorable, friendly and comfortable. Along the way we saw Dao, Tay, Hmong ...Read Moreand Lo Lo ethnic minorities. Highly recommend Mr. Linh for a unique experience and you will also be off the main tourist drag. Read Less

Amazing tour
Review of: Northern Loop Adventure 11 days 10 nights
We recently booked a 10 day tour of the north of Vietnam (Sapa & further north) with Mr Linh Adventures. We wanted something “off the beaten track”, private tour and we wanted to leave the next day - a tall request. We found Mr Linh Adventures office on Ma May street. We explained our requirements to Mr Linh, the owner of the company who quickly put together an excellent itinerary for the 10 ten days. We had a dedicated tour guide and driver who Mr Linh assured us were ex...Read Morecellent at their jobs.
The next morning we were collected by Linh our tour guide (not to be mistaken for Mr Linh the owner) and Bao our driver - the car was of excellent condition. We started at Hanoi and headed for Sapa, our first stop and then headed onwards for the next 10 days following the intinerary set out. We stayed in various homestays and hotels that were prefixed by the company. Some were more authientic than others but all provided a wonderful host service and the food was excellent at each place.
Our Tour guide Linh spoke excellent english and is highly informative in all areas. Linh knowledge of his country was second to none (this may have something to do with him also being a history teacher) and he was always happy to take the time to share all the information with us, from the local food that he would source out for us (we ate delicious food for the 10 days due to Linh and Bao knowing the best places to eat) to history of the caves, lakes, rice fields, minority people and their traditions and so on. An excellent tour guide that exceeded all our expectations. Linh takes exceptional care of his clients and provides you with a great sense of care while never over stepping his professional role – a fine balance indeed for a tour guide and someone you are sharing 10 days with that you had never met before.
While we met other travelers along the way with other tour guides, each had complained about their tour guide for one reason of another, so we understood how lucky we were to have Linh, who clearly outshone the other guides. Ling knows his job extremely well and we were very thankful for this.
Our driver Bao, is an exceptional driver who knows his job very well. Bao knows how to drive to ensure his clients felt safe (which we did) at all times even when the roads and routes were very tricky.
Throughtout the trip, we can sincereyly say that Ling and Bao made our time so much more special!
If you ever find yourself in Hanoi I would highly recommend anyone to book Linh and Bao for a trip up north. Read Less

Incredible trip through north Vietnam!
Review of: Northern Loop Adventure 11 days 10 nights
My parter and I went on a 10 day trekking tour through the Ha Giang provence and Ba Be National Park with guide Mr Long and driver Mr Nam and had a fantastic time!! Firstly the scenery and views were spectacular whether we were on foot or driving in the car. Our guide Mr Long was excellent; he spoke good english, knew the area very well and took us to some excellent spots that not many others know about. Mr Long made sure the trip was personalised for us, from food and drinks we liked to...Read More the type of trails we liked. Our driver was also very good and we enjoyed our time with them both. The food was great - we ate heaps and a huge range of things. There was a great range of accommodation from home stays to hotels, always clean and welcoming. If you can afford to spend more for a personalised trip, we would highly recommend Mr Linh's adventures. Read Less
