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.

Trekking Ta Xua on January 15, 2019
I decided very spontaneously to go explore the area and have to thank Nghia for being up for it and taking care of the logistics on such short notice. You couldn’t ask for a better guide and company. She is very welcoming and warm, with lots of stories to tell you about the region and Viet Nam in general – be it history or culture.
While doing the trip she was always engaging me with the people living in the mountains – starting off conversations, showing their homes and their work so that you could actually stop in order to get a real glimpse into their lives as opposed to just passing by or watching from afar.
We had a relatively tight and somewhat taxing schedule but I am very glad Nghia took it in stride and tried to include everything I wanted to see. In the end, it turned out to be so much more and she exceeded my expectations by far.
I can only recommend discovering northern Viet Nam with Nghia and Zonitrip. You will get an unforgettable experience tailored to your wishes and off the beaten paths and – if you like – quite adventurous as well. I wouldn’t hesitate to go with them again.
