Mitch is an amazing guide; smart, knowledgeable, funny, and his English is excellent. The fees are a bit higher than some of the other companies in Hsipaw, but there is a good reason: quality of service.
We went on a 2-day/1-night trip, staying in a village. The views were stunning and Mitch gave us a running narrative on the regions history, politics, economy, ecodiversity, cultural practices, and the broader changes occurring in Myanmar. He answered all of our questions thoroughly and in detail. His in depth knowledge of the local communities (ask him how many languages and dialects he speaks, its astounding) and culture opened a door that would otherwise have been closed to us. He is a consummate professional who is very considerate of his clients, whilst also be aware of minimizing potential negative impacts of his business.
Would thoroughly recommend, and if we ever go back to Myanmar we will hopefully go on an extended multi-day trip deeper in to Shan State.
