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.

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.
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:
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 warm hosts, 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.
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.
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.
The trip is a perfect match for solo travelers who come to Ha Giang for the first time like me. Cold weather made the scenery look a bit gloomy. To compensate for this, the homestay is spacious and comfortable. Nghia, the tour guide of Zoni is nice and very knowledgeable of history and culture of Hà Giang and minority group living there. I had many opportunities to interact with local people as well as enjoy unique specialties including corn white wine, stir fried running chicken, homemade bacon and sausages ^^.
Awesome Experience in Ha Giang
I enjoyed every moment with spectacular view of the valley/ mountains throughout the roadtrip. Lots of photo opportunities. The guide, Happy show me all the nice spot for photography. He’s well spoken and understand solo /muslim traveller like me. Thank you Zontrip for this amazing experience! ?
Back for a second round – life on dramatic mountains
Review of: Ha Giang – Motorbike tour 3D4N
Nghia and Zonitrip simply don’t disappoint. This is the second time I’ve had the pleasure to hit the road with her and like the first time around it was as wonderful to be in her company and discover yet another part of Viet Nam.
What makes Nghia stand out is not only her goal to create an individual itinerary but her own curiosity and thus never ending desire and journey to learn about her country and its people; finding out about new things together with her guests each time she’s out exploring the beautiful north. It truly feels like you are traveling with a peer and friend rather than “just a guide”.
Nghia cares about the local communities, seeking to support them in carefully choosing their homestays and introducing you to their lives and causes. By connecting you to the locals she’s making your travel not only about the landscapes and nature but also about the people who live in it – giving you more context and an overall better understanding and longer lasting impressions.
From my first travels with her two years ago I can now happily say that she’s become part of my family. Don’t hesitate, go on an adventure with her!
Best place in Vietnam
I went on a 3 day tour to do the Ha Giang loop in Dec 2019. Having only ever ridden a scooter back home, I decided that it would be better to hire an easy rider to take me around – and it was the best decision I could have made. Happy was an excellent guide / travel companion who made sure I had the best experience this wonderful region could offer. At times the road was very sketchy, full of holes and narrow, but I always felt safe sitting on the back, snapping pics and being a carefree tourist. Overall a wonderful trip!!
Best adventure – Motorbike Ha Giang Tour
Thank you Ms Nghia & Zonitrip organized well for our Motorbike tour to Ha Giang, the best beautiful destination I’ve visited in Vietnam.
The experience of riding through the winding and narrow road and dangerous rock mountain in Ha Giang was one i will never forget. The scenery was too amzing, stunning and giant, beside the local people in Ha giang is so colorful and interesting.
The riding was fun without being too challenging and Nghia – our tour guide was an excellent guide who showed remarkable patience.
It is definitely the most personal way to see such a beautiful country and would recommend to anyone.
