My friend and I did a private 5-day tour of Ha Giang with the Terrible Tour Guide. It was an amazing way to get to know a remote and stunning part of the country. Chi, our guide, was fantastic. We got to experience culture and beauty. We ate amazing local food. Took some great hikes. Even visited a cave and rode a boat to get an up-close view of a huge gorge. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone planning a trip to Northern Vietnam.

Joey was very responsive to all our questions and they helped us organize all points of our trip - from the Sleeper train to the hike itself to the return journey. The language barrier in Vietnam is quite steep since many have trouble communicating in English, so the fact they were able to function as our bridge was really helpful. They also let us leave certain things in their office and shower after the hike. For the hike itself, we had a really helpful guide named Van. His English was limited but he was doing his best to explain the weather to us and the trail itself. He went over and beyond to help me with my bag as well. The food prepared was also quite good, especially the little dinner feast at the cabin - excellent stuff! The weather in February definitely could have been better. We hiked through mostly fog and mist and we decided to forego the sunrise push since you couldn't see anything beyond the clouds anyway. The trail itself was quite empty and the sleeping cabins were cold. So be sure to bring lots of warm clothes and prepare for all weather conditions.

we made two arrangements- because of lack of time,the agency perfectly linked the ascent to Fansipan with Ha Giang trip. Great guide and chauffeur, we have seen a lot of interesting things near chinese border. The agancy really took care of everything- i recommend to everyone

Took a short trip to Hanoi late Nov with the family. A family friend recommended we use The Terrible Tour Guide as he had booked a tour with them previously, and thought they were good. Mind you this family friend has HIGH standards, and The Terrible Tour Guide did not disappoint. Joey, the CEO, very promptly sent me an outline of things that we could do as a family in Hanoi and included the estimated prices and amount of time of each tour per day. His suggestions were right up our alley so there wasn't much to tweak. Upon arrival in Noi Bai Airport, we were greeted by our lovely guide, Fifi and our driver, Mr Trang. We went on a city tour, a walking foodie tour and visited villages all around the outskirts of Hanoi of the 4 days. Even though traffic in Hanoi was crazy, Mr Trang kept his cool and we felt safe in his car. Fifi was always very chirpy, knowledgeable and obliging - we even visited an AEON Mall to buy home rice paper and fish sauce. We will definitely return to Hanoi and arrange for more tours with The Terrible Tour Guide!

The tour guide, Chi, is friendly and always brief us all the background of each places. Sapa trekking is superb! Walked through the villages, to see the farms and people. Had an experience to have lunch in their villages. Due to winter season, the Love Stream waterfall is okay but the journey walking through the woods is amazing. To see the buffaloes by our side.
