I like one of the newer private carriages (they're all pulled by the same engine) like Chapa, Fansipan or Sapaly

If you want to book ahead, this company is very good - I've known them (Sense of Indochina) for 9 years.

I'd say no real need to book in advance for tours -- unless you know exactly what you want.

A wide variety of trains between Hanoi and Sapa can also be booked through our reservation partner, 12GoAsia.
