Hello to whoever is reading this, if your uneasy give this a flick through trust me.
I’m 21, from Australia, never been to Vietnam. Had no idea what to expect but I put faith and good vibes into booking this tour.
I applied for quotes with multiple companies, Hong from trekking sapa was the quickest to reply.
I will not lie, I had my suspicions as any first time traveller would, Hong was patient, efficient and willing to answer any question I had and in a very timely manner.
I still was nervous not knowing what to expect, Hong himself came to our hotel with his wife, briefed us of all details the night of our sleeper train and escorted us to the station and ensured we got on safely.
Waiting for us was our tour guide. We lucked out big time! We had an amazing guide called ‘Ngoc’ and he truly showed us the full sapa experience. We had our own private car with driver which took us from Lao Cai into Sapa and whenever we required transport.
Ngoc not only took us on amazing treks, but we went off-road aswell, through buffalo trails, through villages and rice terraces, up and down mountains and we experienced the true authentic culture of Vietnam, it blew my mind.
We trekked about 12-15km each day but we were quite agile and willing to go the distance cause we loved it so so much.
Not only did we trek we ate and ate and ate, received education on the Black H’Mong and Red Dzao tribes and experience their houses day to day living and workshops. Our guide also took us to local schools where we got to mingle with children. Might I highlight none of the above was in the tour itinerary, our tour guide just wanted to make sure we had a great time.
Sapa truly is a magical place, we got to see and do so much in 3 days, and I wanted to go out of my way to write this review so that Trekking Sapa can give themselves a pat on the back.
Thankyou so much I had an unforgettable time and will be forever greatful.
