Heart of Sapa

Ha Chau, the hotel manager is very friendly and helpful, she goes above and beyond to provide ease and comfort to the guests. She was born in Sapa and as with many in Sapa, started out as a tour guide. Ha Chau was so popular as a guide that she managed to grow her business and is now the proud owner of a budget boutique hotel and tour business in Sapa! She is well-versed with the knowledge about the region and has extremely helpful and friendly staff who would cater to all your needs.

the trek in itself was good. beautiful encounters and beautiful villages. however, the guide offered very few explanations and was not very talkative. you will also be followed by women who are very friendly throughout the trek until dinner where the dynamics suddenly change since they absolutely want you to buy items from them.

Staff very friendly and keen on helping us all the time. Amaizing views all the way

Very little historical/cultural/political info was shared by the guide (who was very friendly but guests probably received more info from the Hmong women following the tour. Lunch was not “a packed lunch” in a “picturesque location”, but was entirely run of the mill, “tourist friendly” versions of Vietnamese food at a roadside cafe. More than 10 people in the tour. Bueatifyi area, gorgeous walk, but the tour itself was a little disappointing

It was very good experience and local people were very helpful. I would surely recommend this for 1 day (4-5 hrs ) trekking.
