Loved the experience! We went as a family - the trek was a little challenging for my mom, but our guide held my mom during the steeper sections, and my mom never felt that it was more than she could handle at any point. The waterfalls were awesome, and we loved the village and the trek as well. Our guide spoke wonderful English and showed us so much about the village, the people and the plants on our trek. It was also less touristy than other treks. Lunch was also great! We would recommend this tour to everyone

We had a fantastic day visiting the waterfalls, and walking through the countryside and local villages. Our guide Lem was fantastic, very enthusiastic, helpful and charismatic. Great way to get out of Sapa and see how the locals live.

Guide (Lu) was on time and all 3 of us enjoyed her well paced hike She was able to cater to the weakest n was looking out for her while we climb on up to the waterfalls. During hike thru villages she was also helpful.

The best tour we did in Vietnam. The scenery was beautiful and the guides were incredibly kind and helpful.

Chao was a very nice guide and shared with us a lot about the Black Hmong culture. Very interesting trek
