I could not thank Nghĩa enough for making this trip one of the most memorable experiences. My mum and I decided we wanted to do a trek in Sapa and we could not have been more lucky to come across Zonitrip website. Throughout the 4 days, Nghĩa provided a real-life taste of living among the locals, with great home stays, amazing food, and unforgettable views. This incredible experience was only complimented by Nghĩa’s warm, friendly and considerate nature, and I feel lucky to now be able to call her a friend.

“Amazing 5D/5N trip in North Vietnam”Thank you Nghia for organizing the best trip I ever experienced. The first 2 days of our trip were spent trekking up Mount Fansipan, which is a first for me! Our third day was spent traveling around Sapa on a bike. Our guide, Mr. T, was very professional and he made sure that we enjoyed the tour safely. Our last days of the trip were spent on a cruise in Ha Long Bay, which we visited Sung Sot Cave and Ti Top Island. All our transportation and accommodation were covered, and the guides were amazing! Nghia was contactable before and during the whole trip, and she made sure we reached our destinations smoothly! Thank you, Nghia and Zonitrip will try my best to visit Vietnam again and hope to see you again!

Lan Ha Bay cruise -Relax? Always the right place”
After the adventure? Relax!! Luxury cruise on Lan Ha bay. We were the first boat on the bay, so we had the most beautiful view on the sunset. Good activities(a bit commercials but it’s common…), great food but overall, great service. The perfect way to relax after the motorbike tour.
