Overall was good. But due to some construction works carried out during our trip, our tour guide has decided to detour by using more difficult trail. There were 2 local people followed us along the trail, help us to pass through all those difficult path. They followed us till Vin Tan village and started begging us to buy their souvenir. Please make sure to wear right trekking shoes as the trail was a bit slippery.

Overall a good experience but a bit confusing. The driver could not speak English, we had to rely on a couple who had a private tour to check in at the hotel. Also, the e-mail we received with the place of the meals as well as the itinerary of the tour, were not correct. Dinner was in a restaurant that had cockroaches and in which they did not serve what they offered.

The transportation was great(limousine van). Comfortable for a 6 hour trip. The hotel was mediocre (4 star). The guide was very kind but more of a Sherpa leading us through the mountain and valley. The limited English hinders exchange of information. It rained and the hike became more like a muddy slip and slide. Regardless the views in sapa are spectacular!!! I would say just book your own transport, and hotel separately. Book your own activities once you get there. I feel this was $50 USD overpriced per person when I did the math.
