Good trip

Overall this was a good trip that you can visit both Sapa and Halong bay. The trekking to Y Linh Ho, Lao Chai Village was quite long (about 5 hours) under wet weather. However it was a good experience to meet and talk with local. We got many beautiful photos. Our guide Tom was very helpful and knowledgably.

We had enjoyed our stay in Vietnam.

Nothing, is only the train ride not comfortable. Angel Palace hotel 21 Dec room is good. 23rd Dec room is no good, no window, no slippers, no toilet paper. Staffs are friendly. Anyway is ok. I am surprised 3 star hotel without slippers and toilet papers. Hi Vana, thank you for the tour arrangement. Wish you A Merry Christmas.

Good at all

Kenny and Marcus were excellent guides and we had a very good overall experience. There was a mix up with the tour today and my friend with the bad knees found the trek difficult. Kenny was good, however we thought we were going on the shorter walk

Ask a Question

Hi i wanna ask about Holong - Sapa 5 days tour .On the first day of arrival to Vietnam , Hanoi, do I have to arrange accommodation myself or is it included in the tourpackage?


On the first day arrive in Vietnam, you'll stay on the night train to go to Sapa and it's already include in your package

Does your Hanoi-Sapa-Halong tour package include airport pickup and drop off?


Hi John,

It's not included any airport transfer services. 

4 seats car pick up/drop off = 20USD/way/car

If you have any more question, please do not hestitate to contact me any time.
