This is a once in a lifetime experience, that will stay with you forever!
Choose a short, easy to explore adventure or a rural, off-the-beaten-track tribal trek! You will be accompanied by your own expert English-speaking native private tour guide.
We try to avoid other tourist routes (unless you advise otherwise). Our guides speak excellent English, are local and have so much knowledge about Sapa, the surroundings, history, culture, and the different tribes.
You'll have the opportunity to stay the night in homestays & enjoy wifi & hot showers. Alternatively, you can choose to stay in a local house with a local family. Either way you will experience this incredible place & amazing people. Huddle round an open fire, spend time chatting and getting to know your host family.
By booking, you are giving back to the local people, giving them opportunities to earn fair wages, which in a region where 70% of the population is below the poverty line, is desperately needed.
