This is a great tour. I only wish I had stayed for another night! Our guide was amazing. She was knowledgeable, kind and funny. The trek was pretty easy the first day and then a little bit harder the second but, I’d say it’s still not too difficult overall. The homestay was really nice with a delicious breakfast with crêpes. I would highly recommend this trip to everyone.

We completed the two day trekking adventure to villages around Sapa. Our guide Say May was fantastic. Her genuine care for her culture, her knowledge and willingness to share and care for us was of the best quality. The scenery is breathtaking. Food is fresh and terrific. SaPa Trekking is for the good off-road walkers.

The trip to Sapa from Hanoi was a great expierence and shows you a different view from Vietnam. You're up in the mountains the view is great, the local people, the way of life, you can experience this all during this trip. We've done 2 trekkings, one each day, which were very tricky through the raining weather conditions earlier on the week. So the path we needed to follow was all muddy what made it extra hard. The homestay was superb. You meet al lot of people, enjoy the food, drink some rise wine before going to bed. The next morning the breakfast is good to get started for another tough day. Again the view was amazing (we had Sunshine that day). The guide we had kept up a high pace of walking through the mountains, explained things along the way and answered your questions. Overall we had a great time at Sapa
