Hanoi to Sapa tour

I will be in Hanoi in a few weeks and want to take a two-night tour to Sapa with a reputable tour company. I want something that is safe and comfortable and is not a rip-off. Can anyone suggest any companies? And/or how much I should expect to pay for train, tours, hote; etc?

Please do not feed the Ha Noi piranha's (Tour Operators) - immediately on arrival buy your ticket for the rail trip - often they will only sell you one-way as so many fail to show on return - then get yourself to Sa Pa.

Read the post called "A Few Questions Please" < tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g293921-i8432-k848… > and you will find a list of local guides who will give you a better visit at less cost than anyone in Ha Noi.

The Hanoian tour guides can speak Vietnamese BUT they CAN'T speak the First Nations dialects - which means you miss out on invites to drink or eat with them.

Trains USD$30 each way; hotels (weekdays) about USD$1-15; tour USD$10-20 (depending on how long); Lao Cai / Sa Pa bus USD$4.

Take some warm clothes (hooded rain jacket + light sweater and T-shirts - latter 2 very cheap in Russian market in Ha Noi).
