We're a family of 5 with kids in the ages of 12yr, 10yr and 7yr. Our adventure was a 2 day / 3 night (home stay) trek in the breathtaking Sapa area. Apart from being lucky weather wise, all our other concerns about trekking in Sapa with three kids were taken care of our guide, experience, thoughtfulness and sensitivity to our needs. It was amazing how they easily covered the long distances through trails with breathtaking scenery and lush forests. Homestay was good, very kind hosts, very clean!, well organized with towels and bed sheets and excellent local food! The only bad part was that the next day we had to leave and depart the wonderful view they have from their homes. We loved our trek!

Our guide did such a great job of inviting us into her culture. She was patient and knowledgable. We stayed at her brother's house which was the real Hmong deal. We saw so many other purpose-built "homestays" and felt so lucky to have found her. We have already recommended to many others.
