Excellent 3 day Sapa trek with Mu who will tailor treks to suit anyone

Overall we had an excellent trip. What really makes any trip is the quality of the guide and ours, Mu from the Black Hmong Tribe, was excellent. There were just the two us on the tour so she tailored the trip to what we wanted and were interested in and went at a pace that suited us which enabled us to take all the photos we wanted. Mu's English was very good and spoken without an accent (she learnt by following tours and picked it up all by herself). She told us about how the village people live, what animals they keep and what plants they grow and often pointed out things of interest. The sleeper train was as expected and at the homestays we had meals together with the other guests, which provided a social atmosphere to find out about their travels. The first homestay was high up in the hills (1,600m) where it was a bit chilly at night but the blankets provided kept us warm (March) but the second one right down in the valley was warmer. It was good trekking to the homestays

Beautiful area where you will not get bored and photographed. Very varied walks to beautiful villages. Villagers walk along with the long walk to the rice fields to help you on the sometimes slippery journey. Halfway they say goodbye with the expectation that you will buy something from them. The guides were very friendly and told a lot about the area. Spoke English well.

Adventerous

A great trekking experience to discover the natural environment of Sapa such as the Love and Silver waterfall. A tranquilizing trekking experience to witness the local village with their beautiful farming activities.

Our tour guide Me, was excellent. Spoke very good English and was very knowledgeable about the area. Would recommend to all, however some fitness is required.

Thanks for the great tour, all the informations, nice treatment and exciting day. It was a pleasure for both of us.
