4/ The review from our tourists
I liked the 1 day trek with TrekkingSapa, because our guide gave us options on which trails we wanted to do. Initially, she suggested we go to the South of Sapa but she found out we had already done a homestay in that area, so we changed the trek to the North of Sapa. Our guide was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions and gave us a better understanding of life in Sapa. The trek was relatively easy, except the parts where it was really muddy and we were slipping a lot, good shoes are important!
