My wife and I joined the 2 D/1 N Tour from Hanoi to Sapa inclusive of cable car ride to Fansipan by bus . Journey commenced in the morning about 7 am pick-up from our hotel and transferred to a Sleeper Bus . The bus journey was smooth and wifi available with a comfort stop of 30 mins before starting the mountain climb . En-route the scenery was refreshing and beautiful ! Arrived Sapa Town mid -day and lunched in one of the hotels , Thereafter we were transferred to various hotels . Ours was a 3-star hotel Sunny Mountain Hotel . The room was simply laid out but rather spacious with wifi , more than we could ask for on 1 night stay . Afternoon we continued for a supposedly' easy' 2.5 hrs trek to Cat Cat village to visit the H'mong hilltribe and a waterfall . However ashamed to report that this not so old man of 68 failed to complete the trek: about 15 minutes into this' easy trek' which saw rather sharp descending down the slope on a rather slippery and uneven stone steps . As there was no rails or any tree branches to assist , i was falling bit behind the rest so i had to make this sad and painful decision TO QUIT . Too unfit nothwithstanding the fact that i was still recovery from a total knee replacement ops 4 months ago . Next morning after breakfast we were transfered to Sun Legend Park to board a cable car ride to Fansipan - The Roof Of Indochina .The almost 20-min ride was rock steady and smooth . The view en-route was foggy and hardly visible as outside temp was single digit (typical in Dec/Jan) . However there were moments of clarity when sunlight triumped and the view was breath-taking , you could see clounds waltzing around and below .We disembarked at 2800M and walked up another 50-70 steps to another level where the pagoda located . Thereafter one could exercise the option to take a electric tram to the Roof Of Indochina 3143M and have great photos taken complete with bragging right ! The visit to Fansipan was truly sublime with mesmerising view and counted as the highlight of our trip . After lunch we were tranferred to the sleeper bus for another 5-5.30hrs trip to Hanoi . Now allow me to air my personal view or 'prejudice' on the sleeper bus : It might be interesting way to travel for young able-bodied but i strongly feel otherwise ! The sleeper bus confiqure on 3 rows of double deckers ,rather squeezed to get in ,out and haha,to climb up ! No doubt when you get to you 'bed' you could lie on 75% sleeping position . WORSE still ! in the name of cleanliness and hygiene the passengers need to remove footwears wrap in a plastic bag and put on their scandals .It's so cumbersome and it is hygienic ? It's a mere 5 hours journey where is the logic ? Most of us have been on bus/coach tours for much longer distances and no need to have this taking off and putting on rituals ! Many long distant coaches are well equipped with seats that are super comfy and reclining ! Sincerely hope you will make a trip to this wonderful Sapa/Fansipan but perhaps make an informed decision on the mode of transport !

I booked a 2-day and 1-night Sapa Easy Trek and Hotel stay by bus from Hanoi with Alice. Paid a deposit on booking and the balance was collected from my hotel in Hanoi. Picked up from hotel by a minibus and transported to bus station to board a sleeper bus (which you are required to take off your shoes. Soon makes sense.). On arrival in Sapa, I was met by my guide, Vang. After checking-in and had lunch went for a short walk through interesting Cat Cat ethnic minority Village. The highlight for me was visiting the actual home of my guide and meeting some members of her family. My young guide speaks English well, was good-natured and informative. The next day a much longer trek through beautiful scenery and more ethnic minority villages. Although there was no rain the track through the rice fields can be slippery. Even though this trek is billed as “Easy” I would rate it as “medium”. All the meals at the (Sapa Vista) hotel were good. I was very lucky to get the best room (608) in the hotel. Overall an excellent tour and very good value for money. On my return to Hanoi, I was picked up by a pre-paid Transfer Service (organised by Alice) to an Airport Hotel rather than my pickup hotel. A big thank you to Alice for everything going so smoothly and the breathtaking hotel room.

My first reaction when boarding this bus was shock horror as I have limited movement in my left leg and foot. However, once I got over the crawling into the lower bunk/seat and managed to get the seat back adjusted for a comfortable 6+ hours journey it was ok. By the time a couple of hours had passed I was quite happy to drift off to sleep. :o) My two friends were not so fortunate and ended up in top bunks for journeys to and from Sapa. This was not without difficulty for them as they both suffer from knee injuries. Anyway, we made it there and back and can actually highly recommend these buses. No fault of the company, but our tour guide should have warned us in advance.

I booked a 2 days and a one night at a home stay with Alice online before arriving Hanoi for my sister and myself. Alice was very prompt in her replies and was really good and accommodating with the money collection. I did not know what to expect, but the coordination was really impressive. We went to Sapa in the sleeping bus; which was a very new yet comfortable experience. So, our tour guide met us, and with other fun 8 people, we went on a 12KM trek on the first day. So was very informative and her English was very good and clear. The nature's beauty is so overwhelming and no camera can capture the real life view. we stayed at a home stay in a village though there is a hotel option, but we wanted to experience the humble village life. Please dont expect a five star bathroom or food. However enjoy the experience. Next day we woke up to the beautiful view, and trekked for another 6 kms, and the fun time was over too soon. We returned to Hanoi in the sleeping bus again by 7-8 pm/ Definitely recommend Travel to Sapa by Bus tours to anyone.

We were free lancing Vietnam and decided to include a tour of Sapa and Halong Bay. Alice organized an amazing few days for us from our home stay to a beautiful hotel with amazing views Sapa also really nice hotels in Hanoi a food tour and a night on Halong Bay even a bike tour around Hanoi. The price was cheaper than we would have found and took the worry out of everything. I would definitely recommend them. Thanks again Liz and Kristen
