Although sleeping in the train was hard, the full experience was great and positive. They care for us from the hotel to the train station. The only improvement is in the train, maybe water & fruit included in the cabin will make the travel easier.

I did the Sapa Authentic trek with my guide, who is a really amazing woman. This trek is sometimes off track but made sure due to my ankle injury so our guideto take me through easier paths when the track would be difficult for people with bad ankles and would always ask which option I preferred before taking new routes. The homestay was really heartfelt and welcoming. The landscape was beautiful!

We spent 3 days trekking villages and we enjoyed this place so much. Sapa beauty is still in nature and the weather was so cool in hot summer of Northernn Vietnam. Can recommend.

Soft trekking experience 2 days around Sapa, it was awesome. Our tour guide was super cool! She was a young woman from the Black H'mong village. She impressed me in so many ways. She spoke amazing English, was very knowledgable about Vietnam and about her village. She answered all our questions. After touring the market in sapa, we made our way to her village. We walked for about an hour, all the while admiring the beautiful views Sapa had to offer. We then met her family, who were very nice and welcoming. We had lunch with them, which had prepared. Our lunch was by far one of the best meals I had in Vietnam. This was a worthwhile experience which we will Never forget. ! :)
