  • The sights are breathtaking. Tour guide was fantastic. Some women from the villages trekked with us and thank goodness they did, they stopped us from slipping in the mud a few times. Very muddy and wet when we went so wear good non slip shoes. So much fun though. The buses were like nothing I've ever seen, comfortable though. You'll stop at a road house along the way for a toilet break, you need to pay a small amount to use them so take money and take tissues with you as they don't have toilet paper. The motel we stayed in was gorgeous, staff were lovely, food was great and cheap cocktails and beer. Highly recommend this trip.

  • We had a great time walking through the corn fields and rice fields. Zoom our guide was excellent and would highly recommend him. He is very knowledgeable on the area having grown up there and his english was excellent. A beautiful walk through the village to the waterfall. I would recommend this tour

  • The bus is faster than going by train but has sleeper seats designed for small people. I could not fit my 6ft 2in into most seats so was left with the option of the seats at the back which are more like beds with about 30 cm of headroom. So not good for those who are claustrophobic. I was told the sleeper train has a similar problem with short beds.
    The Panorama hotel was fine but nothing special.
    The walks with the local tour guide were good and he was helpful and informative. The itinerary changed from that advertised but only in that the long walk was done on the first day in 3 hours, rather than on the second day over 5 hours. The shorter walk was then done on the second day.

  • Had a terrible experience. 1st the bus dropped us off in the middle of Sapa, no information was given regarding hotel stay, ended up in the wrong hotel. Journey back crowded bus with no space at all, like travelling in a coffin for 5h. Dropped off middle of Hanoi at 22h15 away from hotel

  • The pick up and transfers were fine,the 2 hr first trek was fine, however,there was a lot of rain and the 2nd day trek was dangerous as the conditions were treacherous as the terrain was extremely slippery. Also, we had no advise from any one about the footwear! Although, at the last minute we were told by the guide that the hotel will rent us some.Great! We thought.When we went to rent them, they hardly had any matching pairs or sizes! So I ended up with 2 different shoes, which were not really for trekking! Also they were too small for me, which made the whole experience awful!After 4 hours of agony one of my feet's toe was bruised so badly, it took about a week to heal, I couldn't walk with the pain.This was the first time I has agreed to trekking as my family are keen, however, even they said the conditions were bad, as it should not be like this! After this bad experience, I would not agree to any trekking holidays! The only positive side of it was there were few local ladies with the guide to help us, in the end we were obliged to buy their products as a gesture.

  • Lovely guide and comfortable transport. Hotel lovely location and trekking perfect. Bit touristy on second day but well worth it.

  • Sapa is amazing. The area these rice terraces cover is so much larger than I thought. It's a beautiful product of man working with nature perfectly. Besides riding an elephant, this was my favorite part of my vacation. We stayed at the Sapa Vista hotel, and the room was amazing, with a great view of the mountains. Our two hikes started from the door of the hotel, which was right around the corner from Cat-Cat Village. The first day of trekking was about 2.5 hours, lots of stopping, didn't cover a huge distance, mainly downhill, and ended at the bridge and waterfall. The second day was easily 5 hours, much more difficult but the views are what makes it worth it. Your not walking on designated paths, it feels like the guide is making it up as you go. We had a group of about 15 people, with some local village people mixed in that helped us along the way. We didn't see any other groups the majority of the day. I have a bad knee and this hike really aggravated it. It was hurting for about a week after this. I still think it was worth it though. The only thing frustrating for me was that the person that picks you up at the hotel in Hanoi, is not your tour guide. There is one person that picks you up in a van, that takes you to a bus, which has driver, that bus takes you for 5 hours to Sapa seats that only lay down, bunk bed style, and not meant for people over 5'11''. That bus drops you off at the bus station for another van ride to the hotel. remember the name of the large bus company, its important info you need to get back, The smaller van driver may or may not be your tour guide for your trekking. There is no clear leader to this plan, but somehow it worked out. There were a lot less people on the way back to Hanoi than on the way there, not sure if anyone got left behind. The town of Sapa is much larger than I thought it would be, very commercial, but the hill tribes, the trekking, and scenery are exactly what you want it to be. Its a long rides to get there, but its worth it. And if it rains close to when you are there, you might lose a shoe in the mud.

  • This was a bit of a stuff up with the 5km trek on the first day changed to 12km, which meant more than 1 hour walking in the dark - so stupid when the next day we had up until the bus left at 3pm to have done it. Instead they changed the 5km walk to the 2nd day. Not happy, especially it rained all of the first day.

  • Highly recommended tour! Sapa surroundings are simply great. If you sped time in Vietnam you don and #39;t have to lose Sapa and his rice terraces. Great tour!

  • The hiking part was great!
    But you change your guides sooo many times (at least 4 different guides).
    None of them knew that i booked a whole package. The hiking on the last day took 5 hours instead of 3,5! So, no time for a shower and i nearly missed the bus back to hanoi... a bit chaotic...
