    Overall was good. But due to some construction works carried out during our trip, our tour guide has decided to detour by using more difficult trail. There were 2 local people followed us along the trail, help us to pass through all those difficult path. They followed us till Vin Tan village and started begging us to buy their souvenir. Please make sure to wear right trekking shoes as the trail was a bit slippery.

    Overall, Sa Pa is a beautiful place and a must visit destination. However, the advertising for this experience is a little bit misleading. We were not given an itinerary, instead we had to rely on the minimal instructions from the various staff we encountered. These instructions were occasionally confusing and left us guessing where we were meant to be for dinner or lunch and also where and when we should meet any transport. For a ’3 day trekking tour’, only 1 of the days was an actual trek. The Cat Cat village looks surprisingly like a movie set and after asking some questions we found out that no local villagers actually live there (this was still a great photo opportunity; just not authentic). The quality of the guides was inconsistent, one day the lady was helpful then the next day the lady was clearly in a rush to get the trek finished. Also prepare yourself for pestering “village women and children” who will follow you the entire way trying to sell things.

    The bus ride to Sapa was great, very comfortable way of traveling. Our guide was excellent - she was a local girl with very good English and knowledge about the area. The length of the hike in Sapa should be specified in the tour description. We didn't have any problems with this approx 11 kilometers long track, but other people did. Some needed to get picked up in the middle of the trip simply because it was physically too exhausting for them. Our return bus from Sapa was for some reason changed for 2 hours earlier (no communication about it from the company) and there was no one to pick us up to get back to our hotel in Hanoi. In the tour description it clearly says that the pick up and drop off to hotel are included. The tour organizer did not pick up her phone nor replied in WhatsApp. Luckily the Sapa Sleeping bus guide helped us out and we got a free taxi ride back to our hotel.

    I loved seeing the local culture and Sapa is truly beautiful! The only downside is that you’re constantly harassed by the local women to purchase their crafts, even during the trek. Also, if you’re staying in the winter, it will be very cold.

A great experience! Our cheerful, tireless and very warm guide Chu accompanied us on very beautiful and varied paths, protected us from stray dogs with a height of only 1.45 m and told a lot about life and her tribe to the Black H'mong. Lovely hosts in the homestays and delicious food everywhere on our way. The trip was a bit different than announced or booked. No picnics, no houses on stilts and no return trip on the train. Dear GetYourGuide team, to avoid disappointment or irritation, it would be good if the travel plan and the execution were congruent. However, these changes did not harm our enthusiasm. A real asset!
