In overall a really great time. Super tour guide, hotel was great - we got upgraded to a deluxe room with balcony on the last floor (7) - with a stunning view on the mountains. The trek itself was so nice! We were small group of 6, and got the luck to be in great company of 5 ethnic Hmong women to Ta Van, and they were so kind and helpful! We wouldn't have made it without their help somehow, on such a muddy field! Thank you for this great tour in Sapa. We strongly recommend it :)
