“Professional, Personal, Unforgettable”
Me, my partner, father and brother signed up a 6d6n motorbike trip with Zonitrip at Ha Giang and Sapa without looking up anything about their road conditions. During the first 20 minutes, we already had 3 casualties (but it was all our fault) and Nghia was well prepped with first aid kits and all though she seemed a bit shocked.
We were feeling very low on our first day but we persevered on. From the second day onwards, the road confidence and fun just kept building up. We underwent a myriad of amazing experiences – visiting a school, playing with children, threshing rice, learning about the village culture, sleeping at homestays, drinking with the locals, smoking from bamboo pipes, etc. It was nice talking to the locals and even nicer talking to Nghia and Dung Ha, who were our guides but I’d really prefer to call them friends.
Everything was very well arranged and we enjoyed ourselves a lot. By the end of the trip, we couldn’t bear to go back. The pre-trip service was fantastic. Nghia was very organised and accommodating even though we kept asking her questions. The post-trip service was totally unexpected. Nghia too the effort to compile a trip video for us 😀
Zonitrip is highly recommended. Go with them, you won’t regret it.
““Dong Van adorable, thanks Mrs.Nghia”
First i want to say thank you to Mrs Nghia and her colleague Ms Cham.
They are our guides during our Ha giang and Sapa trip by motor bikes.
We did our trip together with Zonitrip tour 3 weeks ago (oktober 2015) for 7days.
on the way from ha giant to dong van is super awesome and then dong van to meo van is unbelievable.
the mountains, the roads and tribes people.
i can’t describe , but its beautiful, specially in harvest time.
and wooww so awesome views and we were so happy because Nghia and Cham did their best for us, and they took us in traditional shop and had same food like normal vietnamesse people.
and was great experience and finally they are not only your guides but finally be our friends.
and we had unforgettable moments with Zonitrip, specially when Nghia said we can joined with her family for dinner anywhere in Sapa area., such a lovely friendly family.
Nghia arranged all for us, even for our accommodations, and also great because sometimes we slept in the house/homestay from Vietnamesse family, so we knew about vietnamesse culture.
overall we are satisfied with Zonitrip and Mrs Nghia is really kind and honest lady, she will do her best for her clients.
If we have chance to visit vietnam again, we want to join zonitrip tour.
Cam On Mrs Nghia and ms Cham,
you gave us nice memories about lovely vietnam and friendly vietnamesse people.
