It was our first time in Ha Giang and we were grateful for YESD who made our trip successful and memorable. YESD had the most professional and lovely people who took care of our tour from A to Z. They provided timely responses and support. We did a 2-day Ha Giang loop tour on bikes. Although the tour was short and quick, we did enjoy the spectacular scenery, delicious food and friendly people of Ha Giang. Our guides and also drivers (Mr. Son and Mr. Tung) did an amazing job through the loop on those freezing days. The vehicle was well prepared. We felt safe and comfortable on their back seats. We stayed at Mrs. Dung's home when we arrived and fell in love with Thon Tha Village and with her family's cooking. You should try her "dưa chua" (fermented mustard greens). YESD is highly recommeded if you want to explore Vietnam at its best.

Best part of my 5 week trip! This team is phenomenal! I spoke to the team behind the scenes frequently before I left, while I was there, and even after. They were extremely responsive and helpful in answering any and every question. They went above and beyond to ensure I had a good experience, I truly appreciate the phenomenal customer service. I can not recommend this company enough. I was traveling as a solo black woman and a tad bit nervous about reception on my trip and hiking alone. I had nothing to fear. The host family, guide, everyone was very welcoming. The views are lovely. My tour guide spoke great English, he had no problem saying if he didn't understand something, and we only used Google translate once. I taught my host mom a few card games and she even beat me in one! We used Google translate and she practiced her English. what a lovely woman. I truly enjoyed the trek and felt like it was challenging but doable. Breath-taking views and met great families along the way when we stopped for lunch. I loved my sleeping arrangements and fell asleep to the sound of running water. Such a peaceful sound to sleep to. I ate good,, slept good, met wonderful people, and enjoyed my hike. My tour guide was knowledgeable about the community, the plants, and proactively shared history with me. I would absolutely do a tour again with this company.

My wife and I did the 4 day Ha Giang loop rider. It was the best experience we ever had for Ha Giang. It was our first time ever coming Ha Giang and I looked around to do a self tour but I realize it’s better to pick a tour that would take care of everything for me. I made the right choice in picking YesD. Our guide Tuan and Hoa were the best! They were very informative and helpful on our trip. They took great care of us and showed us the best time. You won’t regret picking this tour and company. I guarantee that you will have an amazing time.

From the first contact with YESD they were the most professional, lovely, and helpful people. They came up with a personalized "tour" of northern vietnam for my husband and I and our 15 and 17 year old. Everyday was an adventure with Ly and our driver Lan! It was like traveling with friends from Vietnam..they showed us things we would never see. rice farms, street food, hanging out with locals...we travel all over and this was the most interesting, beautiful and fun trip I think we have done. YESD was so accommodating when we changed our plans a bit to add Ha Long Bay to our itinerary. Linh Mai and others at YESD were so communicative and easy to work with! They really made it an unforgettable experience! Staying with families was the most fun. Hanoi is a blast! We miss Ms Ly and Lan..they are the best guides..we were sad to leave their great company! North Vietnam was so fun..we did a shorter tour 4-5 days because we didn't want to spend too much time driving. We had 11 days..3 in Hanoi (at least!), 5 days Ha Giang and 3 days Bai Tu Long Bay ..north of ha long Bay ...super quiet and beautiful. YESD is so, so professional and the value for the cost is impressive..Have fun!!!

What an amazing tour! We booked a custom tour through Yesd in Ha Giang. Everything was handled for us which made it so much easier and comfortable. The views were spectacular and we got a chance to experience the local food and culture. We took an easy rider motorbike loop with Son and Van up through the mountains in Northern Vietnam. They were great tour guides and really made our trip. We stayed with wonderful, welcoming families that made our trip unforgettable. We spent a day hiking through the rice fields with Lim who was incredibly knowledgable and friendly. Overall we could not have been happier. It was our adventure of a lifetime thanks to Yesd! :)
