What people are saying about Sa Pa

Perfect organization! Punctual transfer by limousine (which is actually a minibus but air-conditioned and with large and comfortable armchairs), 4-star hotel with a very comfortable bed and views of the valley, varied breakfast and very good meals (they were however a fixed menu so every extra order was paid separately). the first day we visited cat cat village, beautiful but obviously artfully created for tourists. on the second day we walked through the rice fields, visited three authentic villages, had lunch in a local place and enjoyed all the wonders of the place. Vote 10 and praise! there were two guides, both good and available in answering our every curiosity.

Very fun excursion, good walk and incredible views and landscapes. The fair organization, you have to take care of contacting people so as not to make a mistake on the buses. The sleeper buses are small, I am 1.85 meters tall and it was difficult for me to get into bed. We really enjoyed the excursion with a great guide!

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!

It s a great tour. You don t want to miss it. Very nice and friendly guides, good hotel with great food and kind staff. The walk is fantastic as the scenery.

Lala our guide was really fantastic, very beautiful views of Vietnam and a real immersion in Vietnamese families.
