I'm searching for a Sapa - Ha Giang tour, is it possible for a 7 days itinerary? Is there any option for 2 people with $300 - 400 per person or maybe cheaper? We prefer staying at hostels or homestays, group tour is ok.


There are not many travellers doing this route for we do not operate join group. And price for tour is quite expensive because of the route is very adventure. Can you join with a Vietnamese group?

I want to book 5 days of Sapa trekking and Halong Bay cruise but confuse about the trekking in Sapa. I and my wife are 68 and 65, we love exercising but can't adapt to anything too strong or hard, is Sapa trekking suitable for us, is it difficult?


The trekking route is about 12km first dayand 6km for 2nd day, mostly down hill, are you able to do that? We could customized shorter trekking time to 3 or 4km.

Hi, interested in a family tour in Vietnam for 7-8 days. I see you have this tour but it ends in Halong which is not ideal - we would want to end in Hanoi. Can you please confirm what options you have? Could you please also confirm: - when we book twin rooms, are we ensured to be together (at least one adult and one child)? I would assume so. - what are the rates for adult versus children (our kids are 8 and 10)? Thank you


Dear Anne-Sophie Purtell,
Thank you so much for your interest in our services.

Further to your request, I would like to send a customized family trip to North Vietnam in 7 days/ 6 nights just for you. In this program, I would include the visit of Bat Trang pottery village and leisure walk in the mountainous area of Mai Châu, which are highly recommended to families with children and received great feedback from our other customers.

And yes, if you book twin rooms, I will take note to hotels, to make sure your family have room as closer as possible (next doors/ opposite doors).

Here below is our Children Policy:
The rate for children applicable for one child sharing a twin or double cabin with two adults
For infant (<04 years old): FOC except domestic ticket cost
04 - 11 years old without bed: 50% adult rate
04 - 11 years old with extra bed: 75% adult rate
04 - 11 years old in twin share: 90% adult rate

Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions,
All best and looking forward to hearing from you soon,
