"Memorable Trip"

Sapa Pathfinder Travel arranged a package for a group of 8 of us from Hanoi to Sapa, Lai Chau and Dien Bien. This included train ticket from Hanoi to Sapa, hotel accomodation, meals & air ticket from Dien Bien back to Hanoi. We were very impressed with their services - right from the time we were picked up from our hotel in Hanoi to go to the railway station. Their staff even see us to our cabin.

When we arrived Laocai the next morning, we were transferred to Fansipanview Hotel where we took our shower and had our breakfast before embarking on a 13-km trek in Sapa. The staff at Fansipanview Hotel were all very warm and hospitable. The rooms are clean and spacious with big shower room.

Our guide was also very professional, taking care of our every need. Not forgetting a very experienced and skillful driver who drove us through beautiful mountaineous and rugged terrains and weaving through picturesque valleys and passing through many small villages. The scenery was spectacular although the journey can be a little tiring. Imagine it took 7 long hours to travel 240km. Thank God we made the right decision to take a flight back to Hanoi from Dien Bien.

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Sapa, Lai Chau and Dien Bien. We would definitely recommend Sapa Pathfinder Travel to anybody who wish to visit Sapa.


"Incredible Experience with breathtaking views. Not for the unfit!"

We booked this tour from Sapa Pathfinder and everything went smoothly from the get-go. It was a 2 day 1 Night trek. I found it physically demanding as we were running a tight schedules with minimal rests. I cannot stress the importance of warm clothing especially if you are intending to hike it during the December-Jan period. The temperature can be as low as 0 degree celsius. It was especially hard to get to sleep at night..especially when our tent was getting pounded by ferocious winds. It was supported by bamboo sticks (tent is built by the guide and porters from Sapa Path Finder). Thankfully, it didnt cave in! We set off at about 5am to make our final push to the summit. Bring torchlights as there are some roots that jut out from the ground. I wore my Vibrams Five Fingers...bad choice! When we reached the summit, the rush of emotions and the sense of achievement is simply overwhelming. For those who want to make a phonecall to their special ones back in town, there is reception...NOT from Vietnam but from China!

We made our descent with little fuss but i have to add that the constant balancing and stepping downs is rather jarring for the knees!

"Trekking Sapa - Most amazing villages of H'mong & Zay people"

Our experience, a week-long tour of Hanoi-Sapa-Halong Bay, was superb. Ms Hai did a great job to organised to cater on our request and budget. The accommodations were excellent and transportation are hassle free . Our tour guides, were knowledgeable on the places we been and very eager to share their knowledge on the rich culture of Vietnam and were charming companions, as well. We had the most remarkable couple tour with Trekking Sapa. Not only everything was perfect, but we felt, in every instance from booking this tour via Ms Hai, to our tour guides and the Halong Bay Peony cruise crew truly cared about us, and did their best to make this trip memorable. Two Thumbs Up and highly recommended tour company in Vietnam. Thank you so much!

"Hiking Fansipan Mountain in a day!!"

The first weekend after the end of the lockdown i went to Sa Pa to hike this beautiful mountain and i had the best time ever. First of all i had a great guide SU ( thank you again!) all for me as i was alone in my group. The mountain as well was desert as Fansipan peak (compared to high season). i highly recomend a two days hiking if you are not a super fit trekker, as the trail is not so easy, especially to do it in 10 hours, but is stunning and worth it!
