Sapa sisters is located in the Graceful hotel, at 9 Fansipan street in Sapa. After your hike, you can have a shower there. Booking through Sapa sisters' website is... More

We did a 3-day 2-night trek around a bunch of the small villages near Sapa with our guide Lan. Both nights were homestays with H'mong families. The houses were clean and safe, with good showers and great home cooked meals. Lan is an experienced H'mong guide who speaks great English and knows tons of people, and tons about the people...

We booked the tour in advance, because we had a very tight schedule and wanted to play it safe. We were picked up at the train station and brought to a little hotel, where we could shower and have breakfast. We then met our tour guide and started hiking to the villages, followed by many other woman, who helped us... More

Our experience with Sapa sisters was fantastic. Chai was our guide and was very knowledgable and flexible in our trek. After 5 hours of walking, our 11 year old twins started to fall apart, so alternative arrangements were made that were pleasing to us all. Trekking with the Black Hmong girls gave insights into their way of life and the... More

Did two day trips with Sapa Sisters, guide was named Khu. You will meet your personal guide at 9am in their office located at Graceful Hotel Sapa. If you arrive early from overnight train there would be a possibility to have breakfast and/or take a shower before you go trekking. As well after if you leave directly to the bus... More

On the day we arrived in Sapa, we wanted to fit in an afternoon hike/tour of surrounding towns. We visited the Sapa Sisters office, and they set us up for an afternoon hike. This took a little convincing, since typically the half-day hikes start in the morning and end early afternoon. But after some discussion they agreed. Lily was our... More

We arrived at the Graceful Hotel early from our overnight train and were keen to book a last minute trek with the Sapa Sisters who we heard were incredible. They lived up to our expectations and the tour was amazing. We had Chi as our guide who spoke incredible English and was very knowledgeable about the local area, taking us... More

We had a fabulous experience with Sapa Sisters. Our guide was Sam and she was a great guide and her English was exceptional. We chose to do the home stay with eating lunch at her sister's house. All of the meals we had were quite tasty and never felt hungry. Our trekking route took us through many villages, rice terraces... More
