Our 3 days of Amazing Sapa Tour, was that and more, as our guide was great. That was topped with the monthly Water Buffalo Market with the Flower Hmong People, which was a wonderful experience.

This was an ideal days trekking for our age group (65) around 13km in the highlands, beautiful scenery, lovely weather and very helpful guides. When we arrived in Lao Cai on the overnight train at 5am we were able to enjoy a refreshing shower and breakfast before heading off to Bac Ha markets and villages… More

Everything ran very smoothly and with no problems. The treks were ok. We thoroughly enjoyed Bac Ha market, much more colour and diversity and the guide looked after us very well on our return to the train station.

On our trip to Sapa, the train arrived late to Lao Chac, so things were a bit rushed when we got to Sapa.Our guide was trying to get us out on trek before we had checked in.(Only a small point). There are too many tribes people in Sapa now. Spoiling it slightly.

great hotel location and trekking
first guide was good to the rice paddies) (and the second one was excellent and the third one to Bac Ha Market was ok). The bus guide and the rice paddy could explain more to us.

pick up from train station was slow (it took over 30 minutes to leave as they tried to crammore people into the bus). And then we had to turn around after leaving the town to pick up a random friend of the driver. The van was already over crowded and made the ride unenjoyable.

The guides are very good; friendly and knowledgeable. Ethnic market was the best. It allows understanding of culture and good experience. It was short but like a gem, full of wonderful experiences. Travelling among the Flower H'mong people in the market was wonderful. It is highly recommended or is… More

Maybe include one drink in the meal as there were no costs of drink list. People will drink more when the price are reasonable. Not a lot of food and very basic. Too much MSG.
