I had an absolutely wonderful photography and motorbike Mu Cang Chai tour to Ban Gioc waterfall with Zonitrip in October this year! You will be extremely lucky to have a guide like Nghia, her professionalism, flexibility, patience and dedication to my needs were beyond my expectations. This was my second tour with Zonitrip and will definitely my prefer tour operator when I plan for my next trip to Sapa and Hoang Su Phi. Highly recommended!!!
“Incredible impromptu road trip!”
I contacted Ms Nghia last minute when I was in Sapa cause the weather was not in my favour and I wanted to get out of there. Had a Sapa – Mu Cang Chai – Hanoi route in mind, to travel by motorbike. I enquired with other tours and the price they quoted was quite high. Ms Nghia came up with an itinerary for us, along with the a reasonable price, inclusive of bike rental, accommodation, food & bike arrangement to be transported back to Sapa.
I had an incredible time riding through the mountainous road with sharp bends and ever-changing horizon which forever left me in awe, especially the abundance of rice fields and terraces from Sapa – Mu Cang Chai. Not to forget the unpredictable weather. It was an amazing 3 days, of new sights and experiences! Staying in hom stays & Definitely one that I wouldnt forget!
Thank you Ms Nghia for making it possible and for the efficiency, taking good care of me and my friend throughout the 3 days! 🙂

Great Customer Service, One of A Kind Trip”
I had a spontaneous motorbike trip in Northwest Vietnam with the customized Mu Cang Chai Tour of 3D/2N from Zonitrip . It was one of the best trips I had taken. The landscapes, the people, and the culture of Northwest side of Vietnam, specifically Yen Bai province, I had experienced fully with the help of Zonitrip and Ms Nghia.
Despite my short notice, she did extremely well in organizing this trip and making it possible. The price is very reasonable and worth every cent. Although their guide and services started this year only, Ms Nghia is very knowledgeable and capable in organizing and planning trips as well as the history and traditions of the people and places in Yen Bai.
However, since it was a motorbike adventure trip, you have to prepare for long rides on a motorbike so better bring along some muscle creams or patches to ease sore muscles. Carry light as much as possible but be sure to bring along windbreakers, face masks, glasses/sunglasses, gloves (optional).
As they say, there’s no better way to experience Northern Vietnam than riding a motorbike and that is absolutely true. Thank you Zonitrip and Ms Nghia for making my experience in Northwest Vietnam a very memorable one.
