Sapa Tour

by pc99 Online Now Jul 10, 2009 at 5:27 AM

Can someone advise on whether footprintsvietnam tours are reliable? Have found a 3 day 4 night tour leaving Hanoi for Sapa, covering the market on the Sunday. Am looking to visit Hanoi in August and have limited time

    I found it much better practice to arrange my Sapa treks with local operators rather than doing it through Hanoi. Not only did it work out much cheaper, it is also an opportunity to punch some much needed revenue into the local economy, which would otherwise end up in the pockets of Hanoi middlemen.
    We did different treks, including a home stay in Ban Ho, all arranged in situ with Cat Cat View Hotel. Great experience. Another benefit is that you can basically tell them your desired itinerary and they'll work it out for you.
    My two cents worth. Enjoy!

    Footprint is reliable. For the trip in Sapa 3d4n is reasonable, you should stay 01 night in Sapa and 01 night in Cao Son Ecolodge for better experience with tribes markets. You will love the view from Cao Son to Bac Ha as I did
