What people are saying about Sa Pa

Everything was very well organized on this trip. The buses are luxurious and very comfortable. The selected hotel was also great and provided good alternatives for vegetarian orders. The first tour wasn't that long to get used to... The second day was more to our liking. Get off the street, straight through the mountains on hiking trails, enjoy the peace and quiet of the country. Overall a very nice trip if you don't have much time.

We had an amazing trekking tour - would highly recommend! We stayed at Sapa Charm Hotel, and they have links with a local tour guide named Trang - she was absolutely fantastic. Took us on great trekking trails and helped us understand a bit about life in Sapa. She was a wonderful tour guide and we couldn't speak more highly of her - very enthusiastic and knowledgable!

Very good experience, with a guide for us alone. The reservation a bit disorganized as we were booked into another hotel (much better than we initially thought) but we were not told, so when we arrived in Sapa we didn't know where to go and the driver didn't know either and didn't speak much English. Except this, the rest very well with a guide of 10.

Excellent tour organization. Good hotel and meals too! Efficient pickup from Hanoi and adherence to the times described. Friendly and helpful local guide. Highly recommended!!!!

Great experience around local Villages. The local Guide was exceptional: adapted her way of explaining the history and tradition to what we were interested in. Fantastic!
