Incredible Sapa
Reviewed On: Apr 12, 2023VanessaUnited States

Mr.Hong from AsiaTourAdvisor was most helpful at every step on the way exploring to Sapa. He supported us greatly on our three days trekking adventure. We were also thrilled by our guide, who spoke very good English and was very knowledgable about her land and her people, the Black Hmong. It seems three-day tour wasn’t enough for the curious travellers like us, who always quest for beauty and culture of Sapa. We will come back and stay longer soon. Vanessa -United States

Very impressive tour to Sapa
Reviewed On: Apr 08, 2023JesseAustralia

We traveled in a group of 4 to Sapa. It was a great experience with AsiaTourAdvisor from the registration of this tour in hk till the completion of the tour. Hong, the one in charge for our trip, has provided us lots of advices in fine-tuning the tour itinerary and has given us helpful travel information. Hong keeps on checking with us throughout our tour to make sure everything is going on fine with us. In particular, Hong took action quickly to liaise with the hotel when we encountered some room issues on the first day at our hotel and the issues got solved right away. This is very impressive to us. And she is like 24/7 standby for us and we felt being very taken care of. For the 3days 4nights tour that we joined, everything is on schedule. Thanks to our tour guide Mu who is a very cheerful and knowledgeable. We love her laughters and the routes which she has brought us to, some of which are less busy with very tranquil environment. Her english is also amazingly fluent. Food during the tour also exceeds our expectation. We could taste the authentic dishes prepared by the villagers with beautiful terraced rice fields as the backdrops. Overall, the trekking tour with AsiaTourAdvisor is highly recommended. It is a tour that would brighten your Vietnam trip for sure. Jesse-Australian

Excellent way to see Sapa
Reviewed On: Mar 29, 2023DonaldUnited States

We asked for a two-day-trip with more trekking than the “tour-package” contained. The tour operators where very helpful and planned an amazing tour experience with an incredible guide, Phang. The transport to Sapa with night train and the transport by bus after the tour were very comfortable and on time. The first day we walked for about 5hours up a mountain Ban Khoang and down on the other side to a nice village for lunch. There where no tourists on the way and we felt like we where all alone in the mountains. Then we had an amazing night staying at the Bamboo Sapa Hotel. The next day we walked with many tourists and women selling hand made crafts. This was a bit annoying, when the women asked many times for us to buy something. The total impression of this trekking tour was still amazing and we strongly recommend others to use this company to experience wonderfully Sapa! Donald –American

3 Day Trekking & Cultural Adventure of Sapa
Reviewed On: Mar 23, 2023ClairemarieUnited Kingdom

I researched and sent an online enquiry to AsiaTourAdvisor Co Ltd. I received a response within 24 hours from a travel consultant Hong. She prepared a tailored trekking & cultural 3 day itinerary for myself and husband. She was very prompt and patient with my never ending questions, as I needed to ensure this trek was not too difficult as my husband has a knee injury. Ms Hai kept in touch with me on a regular basis via WhatsApp in Australia before our departure and whilst travelling in Vietnam. She met us at our hotel in Hanoi and briefed us about our itinerary. Very personalised and professional service, and provided names for our tours guide to collect us from the hotel to take us to the train station for overnight train journey to Lao Cai and also the local tour guide in Sapa. I cannot fault the service and timings of all the pickups, departure times the friendly private car drivers and especially our Trekking guide Ms Sang. Her knowledge of the Ethnic minorities of the hills was amazing. Trekking through the local villages learning about their daily lifestyle, stunning views of the rice terraces and agricultural gardens was breath taking and educational. Local lunches provided in the villages were delicious. At the end of our trek each day we looked forward to going back to the magnificent 5 star Bamboo Sapa Hotel to rest and enjoy our daily foot and body massages, swim in the infinity pool overlooking the village and terraced rice fields. We had a great experience of trekking and leisure. I recommend comfortable walking shoes, a camera is a must and rain jackets as the weather changes very quickly. I can highly recommend AsiaTourAdvisor Company to tailor your itinerary to suit your needs. A professional tour company who provide the best quality of service I have ever experienced in all of my travels throughout the world. Thank you Ms Hai and Ms Sang for making our Trekking in Sapa memorable. Clairemarie-British

“Top Class Service”

The passionate integrity and commitment of Mr Hong and Ms My and driver to maintaining the culture of the Sapa tribes people and preserving their landscape and privacy, while at the same time offering them real practical support, transmits itself to all who participate in their project. As a tourist, you are made to feel a vital part of this project, so in addition to a wonderful touring experience you come away with a deep sense of satisfaction at having been able to contribute in your own small way to ensuring that what we understand by ‘Sapa’ will still be there for future generations. And for ourselves if we are lucky enough to return. Ms.Bianca Troncone – United States

“Fantastic Sapa Trekking and homestay adventure!”
Reviewed On: Feb 24, 2023KartikUnited Kingdom

The 3 days trekking escapade in beautiful Sapa and visiting the many villages was most exciting and fulfilling!! A memorable trip that will be remembered for a long time. We trekked on dirt roads and nature trails up the mountains and across many villages, Ma Tra, Ta Phin, Lao Chai, Ta Van, Suoi Ho, Giang Cha, where tribes like Black H’mong, Red Dzao, Zay can be spotted easily. Learn about their rich cultures, colourful costumes and way of life. Appreciate the calmness and simplicity of nature in these beautiful mountains. The joy of achievement and satisfaction of navigating the many winding roads and uneven stone stairs up the mountains. The surrounding landscape which is so wide and far with views of the valleys and villages. Marvelled at the waterfall and vast paddy fields. The bamboo forest was equally magnificent and mind blowing. A trip that I would describe as ‘inspiring and fulfilling’ or maybe even ‘enriching and peaceful’. Highly recommended if you love trekking in the nature! Kartik-UK

Really great experience
Reviewed On: Oct 11, 2019EmmaCanada

We did the three day off the beaten track trek. Our guide, Me, was very sweet and good fun. We trekked between 10 and 15km per day, which we felt like a good distance. We felt that we really were off the beaten track and passed through Hmong and Reddzao villages. The scenery was very beautiful dispute there being lots of fog for the first two days. The temperature was pretty cold too. Then on the third day the sun came out and the scenery was glorious! The two homestays we stayed in were basic but really gave the experience a very authentic feel.

The best tour guide
Reviewed On: Oct 06, 2019ChristopherAustralia

AsiaTourAdvisor really delivered in terms of creating the best authentic, most humbling and rewarding Sapa trek! Mi was an exceptional tour guide who answered all our questions and some more, not only offering us her wisdom and humor, but also offering us her family home for the night, and letting us experience the most genuine Sapa adventure! Cannot recommend enough!

Must book your trek with the AsiaTourAdvisor
Reviewed On: Oct 03, 2019LauraUnited States

I can’t say enough about this company! From beginning to end communication was great. Treks are customizable to your ability level and interests. I went solo and had Dung as a guide who was INCREDIBLE! Even though I was solo homestays were with a group of other trekkers and during the day paths crossed here and there so I never felt lonely, especially because my guide was so conversational and enjoyable. I did 3 day 2 night stay and loved it. Just enough time. Hiking was more rigorous than I anticipated in parts, but in a good way. I’m in shape and enjoy a challenging hike – some parts flat and others fun and steep! Really felt like I was with friends the whole time.

Good experience with really good local guide
