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! :)

There are 3 things I look for during travel: local experience, budget conscious, and the minimization of environmental impact. Even as a native Vietnamese, YESD provided to me and my friends a unique and memorable trip to Ha Giang. Aside from the exceptional service we received from our tour guides / bike riders (they served as both!), we were able to experience the majestic of the region and were constantly left at awed at the hospitality of the indigenous locals. Personally, the highlight of our trip was during one of the dinners at our homestay with Grandpa and Grandma: I drank the corn wine they made for hours and hours. There's a warm and fuzzy feeling whenever I think back at that moment. This review is my full endorsement for YESD tours if this is what you are looking for when you travel.
