Hiking to Fansipan was an amazing adventure!
I would recommend you to find a local guide in sapa ( no booking).. it is cheaper (we payed 70 usb/ person [water + food included], u should take a another water with you at least 3 liters / person and take your own sleeping bag beacuse it was quite cold under the top.

Booked the one day Fansipan climb since we were short on time and chose Climb Fansipan because they offered the best price. Our email consultant Glory was friendly and replied daily. There was some confusion about payment which was sorted out - many tours in Sapa you can pay on arrival but here they require online payment in advance, maybe for the permits. Most one day itineraries are the same across agencies including hotel pick up, drop off, breakfast, lunch and porters. When we arrived at the mountain, we and the other couple asked about breakfast but were told there was no pre packed breakfast for us even though it was in the itinerary. It was a long, hungry morning until lunch. The inclusions also state Hmong porters between 2-3 people and there were 4 of us but we were told to carry our provisions ourselves so maybe these are only for multi-day hikes. Lunch was carried by our guide. The trek itself was really interesting and varied with forest paths, river crossings, rocky climbs and tree roots with the occasional metal ladder to give a hand. As we got higher, it got foggier so there was less and less to see although the wind would at times offer a glimpse of the view below. It was a long, hard climb with little views but we really enjoyed the scenery. Our guide was amazing. We were quite slow but he was always patient and a big help over a long day. He also gave some information about the mountain and it was interesting to hear about his life in Sapa. The campsites on the mountain seem to be fairly new and look reasonably clean and comfortable but also cold and dark. There's plumbing and water but no electricity. Still it would be worthwhile spending at least one night on the mountain to be able to go at a slower pace and enjoy the scenery more. Would highly recommend! A big thank you!

It’s a very impressive trip to Fanxipan Mountain. I can tell that this is one of the best place I have ever been to. By the way, I don’t think I could make it all through if I didn’t have the great guide and potters who always been there to give me a hand [including water, boots, sleeping bag, lights, etc. when I was in trouble with this stuffs].
With the long rough way and the cold weather, I would like to thank for being like my best friends and fulfilled this trip perfectly.

We booked a 4 Night, 3 Day Tour via Internet with this company to climb the Fansipan. Pick up service from Hanoi Airport and train tickets to Lao Cai were included in the price, but nothing was good organized.
When we were at the departure airport we looked at our train tickets again. We recognized, that the train back to Hanoi were booked on the wrong date. So we sent an email to the company. The company did not answer.
An hour later we took the flight to Hanoi. When we arrived at Hanoi airport, there was nobody waiting for us to bring us to the central station. So we checked our mails again. The company had sent an email and asked for the flight information. Very sad, because I had sent the flight information two times before. We called the company and they told us, that we should take a taxi to central station and they will give us a refund for the transfer. We took the taxi and paid 25 $ (including fees for express road). The taxi driver was quite fast, so got our train to Lao Cai.
The next morning, we arrived in Lao Cai. Again nobody was waiting for us to bring us to Sapa, as described in the itinerary. We had to call the contact person and then we met a guy, who told us which bus we had to take. We were brought to a very strange guest house. According to the itinerary for our booked tour, we should have breakfast and a shower at this guest house. Breakfast was ok, but the shower was not available. The owner of the guest house told us, that a shower before hiking is not good for our legs ... nice! We had to pay the tour after breakfast. We told the owner, that we had to pay the taxi from Hanoi Airport to central station. He called the company. The company told him, that we only can get a refund of 15 $, because this is the normal price for this transfer. We discussed the price, but no chance.
After that we were brought to the starting point to climb the Fansipan. There we met our group, guide and porters. According to the itinerary we should get an introduction. But there was nothing, the guide only talked to the rest of the group in Vietnamese. There was no "hello" or "welcome" for us. The whole trip, the guide did not speak any word with us. But the group of Vietnamese guys was really nice. They translated for us what the guide and the porters told them.
We walked to the camp site on 2800 m and slept there. There was no cosy fire, we got no torches or sleeping mats, as described in the itinerary. The sleeping bags were too thin for low temperatures.
After a really bad and uncomfortable night we started to climb the top the next morning at 4 am, to be there for sunrise. But it was worth it. The view was beautiful.
After that we walked the whole way back to the starting point. From there a bus took us to Sapa, but we had to call the contact person again, because the bus driver did not know were to bring us.
At the guest house we could take a shower in a very dirty room. But this was ok after a hard hiking trip.
Then we were brought to Lao Cai and yes, the train tickets were now booked on the correct date.
All in all, the hiking tour to Fansipan was really nice, the group of young Vietnamese guys was very friendly and the food during the tour was good.
But the organization was really bad. We had to call the company for each pick up service.
And therefore we had to pay 10 $ more as agreed before.
We cannot recommend this company. What we can say is, do the hiking tour to Fansipan, but with another company, e.g. Sapa o'Chau.

We booked the tour 2 days before our arrival hence it was a little rushed but we were able to contact the company when we reached Vietnam.

The climb was not easy but it was made better with a good porter who cooked our meals for the climb (shown in photos). The porter knew little English so he did not talk much but he was friendly and patient. You’ll have to carry your own belongings and water.

For the night, we had to stay in a shelter at the 2800m mark and it was very cold. Also, the toilet had no water or lights. Would be good to bring your own torchlight and wet wipes.

The guide who hosted us in his homestay was well articulated in English and friendly as well, helping us with the transport between the town and the train station. Overall it was a pleasant experience.

Organised this climb through A Vinh and he responded to my doubts very promptly. My friends and I are so amazed that our guide, Chang, is only 20 years old! We were able to communicate easily with his fluent English and he has been very helpful throughout the whole climb. A Duc even provided us a room to wash up and rest after the climb while waiting for the bus back to Lao Cai.
We are truly grateful to the Climbfansipan staff and they made the whole Fansipan experience so much better.

We are a group of 5 pax from Singapore joining climbfansipan 2d1n hiking trip through Vietnamtouronsale (A Vinh). They offer one of the lowest cost including 2 way overnight Hanoi - Sapa train transfer, all local transfer, 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches and 1 dinner.

1st day climb was relatively easy with lots of buffolo along the way, weather was good as there was only slight drizzling. We met a lot of other hikers along the way, all of them are very friendly guides and hikers. There's a concrete hut/lodge at 2800m campsite for us to stay overnight, 6 toilet cubicles with flushing ability but no electricity. I guess it was built recently for hikers. The sleeping matts were in the room and they provide sleeping bag for all of us. The dinner was delicious and fantastic with lots of variety. It was cold at the lodge and we need to wear layering to keep warm.

We started off 2nd day at 5.30am after breakfast and it was strenuous climb down and up. When we passed through cable car on our head, it was almost reaching the summit. There were lots of side railing to assist the climb and some stairs along the way to make climb easier. The aboriginal guide and porter were helpful and provide plenty of mineral water to us along the hike. The last 100m climb to summit was nicely decorated stairs probably due to near to the cable car station. There were still a lot of construction activity going on there!

We took up homestay package at Sapa after our climb and we transfer straight to the homestay by mgr A Duc. To our surprise, we were given individual certs and medal for reaching the summit of indochina! Overall, we were impressed with the climbfansipan team!

Fansipan, the highest summit in Indochina, finally we conquered. With the spirit of trekking, we try to adapt our self and recognize the difficulty and inconvenience of hiking. The occasion for living with nature in the forest is our exaltation, challenging and inspiring us. So we try to take adventure that it is different from our lifestyle in the city. Therefor some mistakes of the package is insignificant for us.
We took the 2D1N climb to the summit with reasonable price, a manager in Hanoi was very active to reply me promptly every inquiries by email. His high efficiency of swift response is helpful and appreciative.
In Sapa, the mistake appointment interrupted our itinerary but a tour leader solved the problems professionally by offering specific exra benefits. We esteem his hospitality.
We were assigned to the tour guide called Mr. C, an excellent ethnic. He is very nice, kind, helpful and attentive. We got good service, good dinner on mountain, live in a house, sleeping bag, gloves, 2 bottles of water etc.
After summit achievement, we separated in 2 groups, me and half of us descended by the cable car. Perfect idea of bird eye view of the fantastic scenery of Fansipan forest and thick fog in the valley.
Fully recommend to all.

We did the two day, one night to Fansipan private tour and were asked to pay upfront and agree T&C's on prices that were valid until 2010.

Itinerary stated porters, water, tents with sleeping bag & mat/ mosquito net supplied along with first aid kit and plastic rain coat. None of this was supplied apart from the sleeping bags mentioned later.

The 'tent' when we arrived after a long days hiking turned out to be some bamboo poles with blue tarp thrown over the top. It could not be closed, the sleeping mats were old used very thin floor mats. Sleeping bags had been left in from the previous evening, they were dirty and had been stitched up so you couldn't close them. As we entered our guide tried to discreetly move all of the rubbish in the tent to one large pile in the corner. There was one additional blanket but as our guide had nothing at all he told us he needed it and would be sleeping in our tent with us.

This is a very hard trek and having paid 100USD each we certainly expected somewhere we could sleep or at least close to keep the wind out overnight. That said this may have been a blessing in disguise as it absolutely stank.

Food wasn't great, communications prior to going were sketchy at best. Over all a very poor performance and I actually feel like as if we paid $200 for almost nothing.

Mr Chen our 'english speaking' guide was nice but he was the only good thing about the whole ordeal.

Avoid this company at all costs.

Overall, it was a good experience and we paid a decent price for it. Before the climb, the staff gave us some time to shower and allowed us to leave some belongings behind before we left for the climb. We took the 2D1N climb to the summit, and we were assigned to this tour guide called Mr Su. He is very helpful, funny and attentive. It was a great time!

Food wise, don't expect anything fantastic but at least we had food and I'm appreciative of the porters and cooks who brought the heavy ingredients up the mountain.

Recommended things to include in the backpack:
Extra sets of poncho, torch lights, food/energy bars
