    4.0 - Good

    Excellent service from Tourradar, efficient, person centred and kept me well informed. We were picked up on time from Hanoi airport by our guide, Tang Kim Dung she took us to the hotel and made sure that everything was in order before she left. Next day she was there on time. Very knowledgable and efficient, she gave good explanation of everything. I must mention the driver, ver polite, he kept an immaculate car and always had fresh water for us, a lovely touch. We were picked up on time for our trip to Halong Bay, all went well but I am not sure what we received for our additional $25 per person for the galla evening, not even a glass of champers at midnight, some cheap stuff that wasn't drinkable. Please don't get me wrong the crew were great but I sensed that quite rightly they were always great. Guide then picked us up for our trip to Sapa, again she ensured we were safely on board and settled before she left. Sapa - well this was a bit of a disappointment. Our itinerary stated a trek, what we got was a 2 hour walk on a proper road, yes there were interesting things to see, but there were lots of people on the same road. We then stopped for lunch for a hour, we had anticipated further walking in the afternoon but our guide dropped us off at 12.50. The rest of the day was free but there is nothing to do in Sapa if your not out trekking, very disappointing. The guide was informative but also annoying as he was often on his mobile phone. Next morning the guide suggested leaving at 7 am, from our experience the day before I said 7.30. In reality we could have left at 9. Lovely 2 hour drive, we stopped at the market, which is like any other market in Asia , so no need to have 2 hrs there. We couldn't do the river trip as the river was too dry due to the dam restricting the flow of water. So we were back in our destination by 12 MD with 9 hours to fill in, in a City that has nothing for tourists. Here our guide was very helpful and got us a room in a hotel but it was a long wait, so we did two ten hour trips on a train for 2 hours walking, a three hour drive the next day. ( which was enjoyable) and 45 mins at a market. Please sort this out for others. I am sure that others have said this but Sapa is now very commercialised and you may want to suggest other things for the itenary. I hope you find this useful, it is intended to be. Best wishes Julie
