After Hanoi city tour, we started first day in Sapa with trekking. Our group members are not really used to trekking so it was quite a struggle for some of us. But we had an excellent guide, Quang. His energetic, cheerful & friendly attitude made it so much more enjoyable and really help to push us forward. Second day was hiking through Cat Cat. The view & experience was amazing. Really calm, peaceful & relaxing. And with Quang around with his very contagious fun attitude, the whole experience was magnified even more. Our team were quite slow & did a number of stops to enjoy the view & some coffee. We even did quite a number of shopping along the hike too! Quang was very patient with us & kept his joyful attitude throughout the hike. He even helped us to take many great group photos! Highly recommend this tour & make sure to ask for Quang. For Halong Bay tour, the pick up from the hotel was very efficient. Rose was very entertaining on the coach trip and had some interesting commentary. Halong bay is a beautiful place, we visited a cave and a beach for swimming. The swimming was lovely, as it was very hot. Overnight on the boat was great, the food was lovely and plentiful. The next morning was the highlight, with Kayaking, it was so peaceful only 2 v’spirit boats there. The views were amazing. Would definitely recommend this tour and would like to thank Rose for an amazing trip. In conclusion, this tour is excellent for people would like to have memorable experience in Northern highlights.

We book the combo directly. Thanks Huyen to give us an advice for the tour. We went night train to Sapa with Deen picking us up from our hotel to railway station. The sights and landscapes are just beautiful and worth the trip to Sapa alone. This tour did however stand out, as our guide during the tour was the best we experienced during our whole trip. He was knowledgeable, helpful, cheerful and everything in between. He made the difference between a good and a great tour. Will highly recommend. The city of Sapa itself is a touristy hell. Avoid the usual tourist traps and find smaller, less centrally placed restaurants with good reviews. V'Spirits and our tour guide Hoang were excellent and very organized. We enjoyed everything on the itinerary. The cave tour and kayaking was our favourite and the food was very good. Highly recommend choosing Asia Package Travel.

Our family did the 3.5km trek to Cat Cat village and the 12 km trek in the valley to a couple of other villages. Our guide Quang was fantastic! He interacted well with our group of a number of different nationalities and abilities, ensuring everyone was engaged. He shared some stories and a lot of information about the cultural,lives of the local groups in each location. The 3.5km trek was an easy afternoon adventure, our trek the following day was in the rain, but still easy enough for us to complete. Our hotel hired us rubber boots which were a must to navigate the streams and muddy tracks. In spite of the weather we still had a fab day, and I would encourage everyone to ignore the weather, it's a pretty amazing day in any conditions. We loved our cruise in Halong Bay with Rose. Her commentary and hosting was charming. Our rooms were comfortable and clean. The food was great - so much! - and they accommodated one vegetarian and one with no seafood in our family of four without problem. The dining room was very elegant with its dark wood and glass. Good activities on offer and even though you are amongst lots of boats, it never felt like we were in a crowded location. The bus we were transferred on could have been a bit more modern and comfortable for the 3 hour trip but this is a minor quibble. This company was middle in price but we felt we got great value for money for our Halong Bay experience.

Great service, quick response to our questions and the sales executive, Tracy is very helpful throughout our trip. Everything was great. Really like the arrangement for our short trip in Vietnam. Would highly recommend this company. You won't regret it. I think it's by far, the most satisfying service I have ever had.
