We are not the best hikers either, however you will need some level of fitness to complete the hike. If you book through Sapa Sisters they are very good at communicating with you about everything from price to level of difficulty and even help you book your train. Your best bet is to contact Sapa Sisters and speak with them. We had a private berth cabin for the two on the Fansipan, and it was okay (although they are not European level comfort, so don't expect the best nights sleep).
I've been looking into going to Sapa and doing some trekking with the Sapa Sisters Trekking Adventures group. Has anyone had any experience with this group and does this trip take you through rice fields? I wasn't planning on going into the rice fields and thus haven't planned on getting vaccines for it... but if this trek is worth it and involves going through rice I would consider the vaccine.
