This is a 2D1N join-in trip to Mt Fansipan Summit (3143m). You will be traversing up and down the ridges with a local H'mong tribe guide. This includes one night's basic accommodation on the mountain and a sunrise summit-climb the next morning. Please Note: The accommodation here is a very modest shared tin hut or tent depending on availability. The huts or tents do not have any heating or electricity as this is a very remote area.

Took a short trip to Hanoi late Nov with the family. A family friend recommended we use The Terrible Tour Guide as he had booked a tour with them previously, and thought they were good. Mind you this family friend has HIGH standards, and The Terrible Tour Guide did not disappoint. Joey, the CEO, very promptly sent me an outline of things that we could do as a family in Hanoi and included the estimated prices and amount of time of each tour per day. His suggestions were right up our alley so there wasn't much to tweak. Upon arrival in Noi Bai Airport, we were greeted by our lovely guide, Fifi and our driver, Mr Trang. We went on a city tour, a walking foodie tour and visited villages all around the outskirts of Hanoi of the 4 days. Even though traffic in Hanoi was crazy, Mr Trang kept his cool and we felt safe in his car. Fifi was always very chirpy, knowledgeable and obliging - we even visited an AEON Mall to buy home rice paper and fish sauce. We will definitely return to Hanoi and arrange for more tours with The Terrible Tour Guide!

The tour guide, Chi, is friendly and always brief us all the background of each places. Sapa trekking is superb! Walked through the villages, to see the farms and people. Had an experience to have lunch in their villages. Due to winter season, the Love Stream waterfall is okay but the journey walking through the woods is amazing. To see the buffaloes by our side.
