I'm a solo traveller, is there a single supplement?

Solo travel is taking off. More and more adventurers are forging their own path and travelling alone as part of a group tour. And it’s no wonder. With the confidence you gain from seeing the world on your terms, solo travel gives you a sense of freedom like nothing else.

If you want to travel to your own tune, you’ll be in good company with Zonitrip. Lots of our travellers arrive alone and leave with lifelong friends. With shared authentic experiences in far-flung destinations, our tours are the perfect chance to create lasting friendships.

We’ll match you with the group having suit your departure time, so you can share the tour cost. About single supplements like accommodation, most of our homestay have a single mattress so it’s very convenient for solo travel. If you want to upgrade a private room, the small surcharge can be accepted.
If at the departure time you want, we haven’t had any other group, you can book in advance or deposit to keep a sit. We will inform you of the update or customized suitable or better options.

You can also find many travel ideas and tours here in the best solo travel destinations. Don’t worry, let contact with us.
Email: info@zonitrip.com
Tel/whatsapp: +84389927861

How about accommodation?

After a long day with a lot of activities, we know a comfortable place to rest overnight is a special concern. A relaxed and enjoyable accommodation is not only to state the quality of the tour but also to get the energy back for the possibly hard days after.

We can say Vietnam tourism has been developing so well so please do not worried about the accommodations when on tours in Vietnam. We can easily find and stay in a 3 to 5 star hotels in the big cities or touristic areas.

However, the Trekking and Motorbike tours of Zonitrip are almost at remote regions where accommodations are not like other big towns, so we’ll stay mostly at the standard hotels or home-stay. But don’t’ worry, they’re surely safe and the equipment is comfortable enough for you:

  • Hotels: 

Most of the towns we stay during the tour are pretty small where there may be only one or few little basic hotels; however, they have will have most of the standard equipment for you to have a safe and comfortable stay such as soft mats, blankets, mosquito nets, Air-conditioning, clean toilets… and free wifi. We sometimes tour through some big cities/touristy areas and we can have better choices to stay in a better 3 or 4 star hotels.

  • Home-stay:

Mostly 90% of Zonitrip’s customers are pleased with staying at homestays. 

All the families we choose to stay have special permits and are certificated from the local government. Most of the homestays are nice wood and clean houses on stilts, are owned by warmly host, who are local knowing well area. Below is the equipment you can expect to have at the homestay: private mats, blankets, mosquito nets, fans, clean toilets, hot water. 

  • Hut/tent

If you have ever done a trekking/camping on the mountain, in the jungle, you may know about the hut/tent. With the trekking mountain tour from 2-4 days, we provide a tent or hut and sleeping bag to sleep. You will share a sleeping space with other guests. There isn’t electricity, internet or phone wireless, no hot water, a simple toilet. 

How's about the food?

We would like to say the food on tours is one of the most important reasons to make our clients come back for more.
We serve almost local Vietnamese food on the tour. Generally, Vietnamese food is light but it’s surely not boring and so healthy. We can be sure all food is fresh with a lot of vegetables, especially for vegetarians.
We sometimes choose a basic roadside restaurant for meals or eating at the homestay but the food is always fresh, tasty and plenty to choose.
Such as famous PHO (rice noodle soup), BUN CHA (special noodle with grilled pork), NEM (Spring rolls)…The local people have different methods to cook so we can be sure you can have different food for each meal during the long adventure tours in Vietnam. 

How do I book and pay?

All our quotes are in USD/VND. We accept Visa/MasterCard by either directly giving us your card details or using our authorized payment form, Western Union, bank transfers or cash ( USD & VND).
Once you have agreed on an itinerary or service we will ask for a 30% deposit and start making reservations for you. Once all reservations have been made we will confirm back to you. The final balance is due on your arrival in our area or before your tour departs.

What is cancellation policy?

  • Once you have paid 30% non-refundable deposit your trip is confirmed.
  • Any cancellation of a booking must be in writing and shall only be effective upon its acknowledged receipt by ZONITRIP
  • For cancellations made within 7 days and 48 hrs before the day of the service, we reserve the right to retain 25% of the due amount.
  • For cancellations made within 48 hrs of the tour, we reserve the right to retain the full fee.
  • No refunds are given in case of force majeure

Trekking Mt Fansipan 2D/1N on February 25-26, 2020
I’m very proud to visit north of Vietnam last month at Sapa and Hanoi.
First day, guide and helper were came to pick up me at the hotel that I stay overnight before trekking. Then going to start point and join with Vietnam guy 8 persons (including tourism 6 persons / guide 1 person / helper 1 person. We have lunch at 2,200 msl camp. Continue trekking to 2,800 msl camp at sleep here.
Second day, after breakfast we start trekking to top of Fansipan and enjoy with good scenery but not stay long time becoz many tourist there and very cold. Then trek down to take lunch at 2,800 msl. Then continue trek down to 2,200 msl, take short break and came down to start trekking point. And they send driver to pick up us to Sapa town.
This trekking program was good and very fantastic for me and my team.
We got certificated and medal too. This is 2 things that I wanna be here.
Thank you Zonitrip Vietnam adventure tours for support me anything.

The total trek is around 11-12 hours at a very fast pace and should only be attempted in one day by very experienced trekkers or athletes. I recently completed a half ironman triathlon (1.9k swim, 90k ride, 21k run) and found this trek to be of similar challenge. My girlfriend would be described as fit. Regular gym, ability to run 5-10km, however, she was unable to complete it within one day. I would only recommend the one day trek if you could comfortably run ~20km or are otherwise very experienced in trekking (or are indifferent to suffering).

Other wise it is an incredibly rewarding experience albeit challenging even over 2 days and provides some incredible views (if the clouds clear!)

Definitely the highlight of the Fansipan climb trip, I just wish we were better informed so we could have chosen the 2 days trek and I could have shared the whole experience with my girlfriend.

An Outstanding planning and logistics endeavour
I chose Zonitrip based on reviews. True enough those reviews didn’t lie. We, seven of us were met at airport, transferred and checked in to Hanoi hotel, had a day city tour, sent to train station bound for Lao Cai, met at Lao Cai and transferred to Sapa. Checked in to Sapa hotel, went for trekking Fansipan, had a day of motorbike tour to Hmong & other hill tribes villages around Sapa, sent back to train Lao Cai station, met by rep very early in the morning, had local street breakfast, checked in to hotel, fetch to airport for departure. In our 5D4N trip we met various staff and representatives at each point of the itinerary but I have yet to meet Nghia. We contact only via email and Messenger. I hope to meet her sometime in the future. The execution of the itineraries was impeccable. I would strongly recommend her to the world.

Overall, we are quite satisfies with the service provided by Zonitrip.
We had climbed Mount Fansipan, they are helpful guide and porter.
Besides, Zonitrip had arranged a Sapa guide which can speak very fluent English.
We like the beautiful scenery of Sapa paddy field.
Thank you that Zonitrip always keep in touch with us to ensure we are always in SAFE condition.
