We were 3 persons and we did a 2 days for the new year eve in Sapa.The sun was clearly shy during the trek but it didn't ruin anything.The guide adapted the trek to our level and the weather.They are really good English speakers.Despite the cold the bedroom has got enough equipment to have a warm night.The welcome was just amazing, we haven't dreamed better than spend new year eve with a Hmong family with so much welcoming from them. And after a month in Vietnam it's the better moment we spent in the trip. Thanks you very much!

I visited Sapa with a group of 4 friends. Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly and spoke perfect English. We visited the village with her on a walking tour one day and the next day she took us to hike (trek) through the rice fields. She was fun and outgoing. She met our every need. All of the members of the group were Happy. Bring waterproof everything: clothes and shoes. The environment is rain forest like. I wanted to help the local people. When I told our guide, she took us to buy school supplies and deliver them to a school on the nearby village of Nam Sai. The happy faces of the children was priceless. Lang made our visit to Sapa a memorable one. She is knowledgeable of the terrain and weather patterns. Take her suggestions on the best way to view the rice fields.
