It's one of extreme hard trips for you. I provide this for riding experts who come with high require of dirt road.
That sounds awesome!
Right now I have a quote of $800 for a fully guided trip from Hanoi to Sapa with the train ride home - includes hotels, meals, train ticket, bike and gas. Do you think I should go for this or I am better off on my own?
