You'll do better arranging it in Sapa -- see the sights section on the Sapa page for more information.

Posted from within Vietnam.

I had good luck with the guy at Friendly Hotel in Sapa. He hooked us up with a reasonably priced private tour. Our guide was a very nice young Hmong woman who spoke excellent English. She took us to villages where there were no other tourists, and did a good job of explaining things to us. It was among the more memorable experiences of our trip here in Vietnam so far.
