Organisation and communication were excellent. Our guide was absolutely fantastic: friendly, experienced, knowledgeable and really took care of members of our group who struggled and needed alternative arrangements to be made. Sapa is beautiful and this trek gives you a great experience of the region. They did an awesome job of avoiding the most touristy routes, so we mostly felt like we had the trails to ourselves. This is totally doable for anyone with a semi-decent level if fitness and a pair of trainers. The homestay even had wifi and hot water! The only thing that needs to be improved is the provision of drinking water: The only option was to buy plastic bottles, sometimes only small ones so we had to buy multiple. This was despite the fact that other drinking water was available (a couple of members of out group were allowed to have this, but only after threatening to complain). Overall a fantastic experience that I would highly recommend
I really enjoyed this tour! Everything was well organised and it went very smoothly. It was only a small trekking group of 3 + our guide which was great. And our guide Chau was absolutely fantastic, she answered all of our questions and told us lots of great information about the area and her village. The overnight train was very clean and comfortable - although if you are a solo traveler you will just be in a cabin of 4 with other members of the public, but that was still okay. The homestay was fantastic, the food was really great also. And there were enough opportunities for food and showers.
Amazing experience once in a life time. Our tour guide Phe was so helpful and knowledgable and spoke flawless English which she had learnt only from tourists.. amazing!! Would recommend this to anyone, have told everyone I’ve met in Vietnam since that this is what they should do! Just a shame that the bus drivers were so crazy...
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.
Fabulous service, we made changes on the second day and they were great about meeting our needs. Wonderful guide and wonderful local people,
