For DIY travellers: A friend living in Hanoi said if you want to chance it, you could easily book train tickets to Sapa at the Hanoi train station by yourself, hoping that the travel agents haven't booked out all the cheaps berths. Make sure you are there in plenty of time, giving yourself at least an hour to buy tickets, as your first choice of berth and train may already be sold out. Getting around will take you a lot longer without a tour guide and private transport, but if you have plenty of time and not so much money, it is do-able on the local busses. On a short trip (like a 2 or 3 day jaunt) definatly take a tour, as a simple trip from Sapa to somewhere like the Bac Ha Markets on a Sunday will take a couple hour van, and a few hour bus just to get there.
If you are on a rush trip around Vietnam, be careful if you are planning on flying late into Hanoi and taking the train to Sapa the same night. Jetstar is notoriously delayed, and if Vietnam Airlines has a lot of buisness class ticket buyers, they group them all onto one flight, and economy ticket holders go on later flights.
Would suggest flying in late and sleeping a night in Hanoi and spending the next day touring Hanoi, or flying in on one of the very early flights and spending a day in Hanoi. If you have pre-booked a train ticket through a tour the ticket is non-refundable, so you will have to pay additional for 1 way to Lao Cai if your flight is delayed enough for you to miss the train.
Alternatively, you could chance taking an early afternoon flight to Hanoi, and ask your tour provider to exclude the price of the train ticket. Then you can buy the train ticket by yourself if the flight arrives on time. If you miss the train, the tour provider can change the Sapa tour to 1 day less, and you can just spend an extra day in Hanoi.
