The drive from Hanoi to Sapa is long but worth the trip. Once we arrived, the tours were organized by which hotel you stayed at. The first day's trek was shorter but involved going down and back up. The second day's trek was longer but only involved downhill and getting bused back to the hotel. The description online didn't quite match with the itinerary (first day trek uphill - no bus, but then dinner included). Our guide, Tai My, was a member of a local tribe and showed us through the villages. She was a great guide, very friendly and she answered all our questions about the area and life in Sapa. We had sun on the second day, so we could see the whole valley and it is incredible. Apparently September is a good time to visit, where everything is green and in full flower. This area was different from the rest of our visit in Vietnam and well worth the money.
We did the two day tour. The mini bus was very comfortable and driver was on time and a good driver. Hospitality at the hotel (Kevin at Legend hotel) was excellent. Their food was superb. We were disappointed in Sa Pa which is over commercialised, crowded and built out. There is no charm left to the place. We only did the first day "trek" which is basically a walk through shops masquerading as a village. We opted out of the second day.
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...
My tour guide was a local from the village who sometimes struggled with english but he was a nice genuine lad who knows the area. some people could struggle with the distance on the second day especially in the heat but its explained before booking. overall a great tour would recommend
Our guide was amazing, the home stay was great with incredible food and overall it was so well organised and I would highly recommended everyone to go to sapa and do it!
