There were 2 tour guides with us - 1, by the name of Mr Nam who took us fr Hanoi to Sapa to Hanoi, the other Mr Phaj who took us on the Trekking in Sapa.
Mr Nam did not leave us with good impression as we all find that he could have been more helpful and attentive to our needs.
On the 1st night as we walk our ways with baggages to the train, one local man abruptly took over 2 of our baggages and another local man followed and slapped the first. The 2 went off they actually fought. We quickly left with our baggages. Our tour guide was ahead of us leading his way walking straight not knowing what happened behind him. We told him about what happened later.
Arrived in Sapa, Mr Nam was eager to introduce his friend's shop Salmon Hot Pot. We did not show up. He did not share much about anything but told us that there'd be a local tour guide. He didn't inform us about the check-out matter as well. When asked he pushed the matter to the local tour guide. We knew it was his scope as he was staying in the very same hotel.
On the last day as we returned to Hanoi, Mr Nam took us to this Fansipan Restop see pic, which charges VND25,000 for a 3-in-1 coffee stated as milk coffee in menu, the lady in the shop admitted it was a 3-in-1 when asked and VND60,000 for a chicken noodle soup. We witnessed the shop assistant ordering fr a road side stall just outside which costs only VND30,000. We could not help but wonder why we were taken to such a shop.
The local tour guide, Mr Phaj who took us fr the trekking was GREAT. He was helpful, jovial and being professional. He speaks good english and was clear in his explanation. He was not pushy about local souvenir or anything to purchase/add on. We highly recommend Mr Phaj to anyone who wishes to do trekking tour in Sapa.
