No need to book from Ha Noi if you want to explore it by yourself. It is very easy to organise trip during the day to villages with a support about information from hotel/ tour agents in Sapa. There is one thing that you should to is to book train ticket and hotel in advance.

Your hotel in Sapa will offer lots of day trips, and a short walk outside your hotel will be lots of other agencies offering day trips. So its easy to organize once you get there. The only thing I would encourage you to think about beforehand is whether you want to visit and ethnic minority market in the area. If you do, this is best done on your day of arrival in Lao Cai, as its often easier to go directly to the market than to Sapa and then backtrack to the market. The bottom of this page has the location of various markets and the day they are held:

I wouldn't recommend booking a 1 day trekk around Sapa from Hanoi as it will certainly be a Cat Cat/ Sin Chai or Ham Rong tour...

Better wait to be in Sapa and see with travel agencies a tour like Y Linh Ho - Lao Chai - Ta Van or, a more remote one like Xa Xeng - Hau Thao - Cau May or, Ma Tra - Ta Phin.
