Sorry been nearly a year and should have written this review sooner.
This for us, was easily the highlight of our Vietnam tour. Dat and his brother Din were fantastic...both speak fantastic english. The great thing about this trip is that Dat has special rights to a seperate part of the national park. During our time Din took us on 3 walks and we didn't see any other walkers on these trips.
Be warned that when you get to Sapa...there will be ethnic women trying to sell you things...they will also follow you round....they will actually walk round the tour with you trying to sell you things...even for a few hours! Its a bit of a shame but part of the impact of tourism in the areas.
Thankfully with Dat & Din this will not happen as they take you off the beaten track.....it is very special. We had a fantastic moment sittng with a family who had been working the fields....best lunch time even.
Dat & Din work very hard and are true vietnamese. BTW - you will be expected to entertain the kids!
Food fantastic.....accommodation fantastc.....
Special thanks to Din who took over the walks as Dat was ill at the time...he had some great stories.
Thanks for reading.
