          Highlight of our trip!
          Our private tour with Nghia was the highlight of our trip to Vietnam. She organised everything for us including some great meals and beautiful homestays! She took us to places we would definitely have found near impossible to visit on our own. The treks were beautiful and mostly off the usual tourist trails. We met and learnt so much about the different ethnic groups in the north of Vietnam. Highly recommend and hope to be back again soon!

          Culture, Beauty, Exercise ABOVE the Ha Giang Loop
          My wife and I had a fantastic experience trekking on a private tour with our guide Nghia and a conscientious driver. We arrived in Ha Giang without any plans (as opposed to booking from Hanoi as I believe most people do). Initial intention was to do an easyrider motorbike tour of the Ha Giang Loop since that appeared to be the best way to see the beautiful, mountainous countryside - according to most of the tour company sites we looked at. However, since we are both around 60 and love to hike (and my wife wasn't thrilled about riding on the back of a motorbike on winding mountain roads), we were excited when we found Zonitrip in a google search and reached out to book a private hiking tour for the two of us. While our tour followed the basic clockwise eastern HG loop, when Nghia learned that we wanted to do a lot of hiking, she very quickly and flexibly set up several days during the tour that we would do more than 10km/day of hiking into some of the remote Hmong and Tay villages; many of them WAY above the busy, noisy motorbike traffic on the main road below. Nghia speaks English very well and is very knowledgeable about many cultural and historical customs of the ethnic mountain peoples. We developed a great appreciation of how these villagers live, getting some great exercise while viewing the unbelievably beautiful landscapes. If you’re into doing more than just riding a motorbike around the HG Loop, I can’t recommend Zonitrip and Nghia enough!

          Đỉnh Tà Xùa
          What started as a recommendation from a fellow traveller at our hostel in Thailand turned into the best hiking experience we’ve ever had 2 weeks later. ZoniTrip was very helpful and organised everything on our behalf - All we had to do was turn up! We (2 pax) opted for the 2D1N guided hike. Although exhausting to reach the peak within 1 day, it would be unnecessary to have any longer. The porter spoke no English but we made do with Google translate, which in my opinion made the experience more wholesome. Special mention needs to be made to the dinner and breakfast that was cooked for us at the campsite - delicious! Off the mountain we stayed at Zoni Home. What a lovely family, so helpful and kind. This homestay has stunning views of the countryside and a real ‘homey’ feel. The owner is highly responsive and addressed all our questions and needs almost instantly. Highly recommend!

          Amazing Trek up Ta Xua
          This tour is well worth if you are looking for something local and exciting to do. We had delicious home cooked meals at the home stay then had a fun time hiking up the mountain with our guide. She was very accomodating and very helpful as we went up the mountain.

          Ta Xua hike
          My husband and I did the 2 day trek to Ta Xua and it was a great experience! The pickup and transport to Zonihome was smooth and Nghia and her husband welcomed us when we got there with a home cooked meal. The meal was the best food I have had in Vietnam. We managed to get to the top of Ta Xua on the first day and were lucky enough to have good weather for the sunset. Dinner was delicious with some hotpot which was so good in cold weather. Unfortunately didnt get good views of dinosaur backbone but we got back to Hanoi early the next day. Highly recommend!

          Hagiang adventure trip
          This is my second adventure at Vietnam tour organized by Zonitrip. Our 5-day journey took us through the captivating landscapes of Hagiang, offering a perfect hike for those ranging from beginners to intermediate hikers. The views were simply breathtaking, featuring magnificent scenery with beautiful mountains, rice fields, and glimpses into the vibrant lives of Vietnam's ethnic groups. Nghia, who spoke excellent English, shared detailed insights into local life. The trekking paths steered clear of mass tourism, leading us to tranquil and peaceful locations. The variety of homestays, including stilt houses, bamboo dwellings, and clay/mud structures, added an intriguing element to our experience. This trip is ideal for individuals seeking a profound appreciation for mountainous vistas, picturesque rice fields, and an immersion into the cultural richness of ethnic communities. Throughout the entire journey, we were accompanied by our own reliable and friendly car driver. It is unquestionably worthwhile to rise early and embark on this adventure. I would highly recommend this tour to my friends.

          Amazing experience hiking with Zonitrip
          We did the 2d1n Mt Fansipan Trek and it was an amazing experience! Susu was a great guide, the views were spectacular and it was so much fun. Absolutely worth getting up for the sunrise hike and really worth doing the overnight tour. Communication via WhatsApp and payment was easy, food was good along the way and everything worked out nicely. Recommended for everyone coming to Sa Pa, absolute must-do!

          Challenging but Beautiful Ha Giang tour :)
          This is my second Northern Vietnam tour with Zonitrip and I could tour with Nghia again :)(Nghia also toured with me during my first Zontrip trip tour). This time, I went on a 5 day 6 nights tour to Ha Giang (specifically Dong Van & Hoang Su Phi). I found the hikes fairly difficult but the sceneries were really beautiful! Nghia was patient in waiting for us during moments where we were trying to catch our breaths or enjoy the sceneries. She also ensured we were kept safe during the trip. Overall, the trip was well organised and I enjoyed myself immensely (:

          Just perfect
          We had the best stay ever at ZoniHome in Tam Trau. We booked 2 nights there because we wanted to hike the ta chi nhu mountain. They were super friendly, they helped us with transportation en made fabulous local food. The hike was the best hike we ever did. I even proposed to my girlfriend on the top 😁 Thank you!!

          Very recommendable trip!
          Very great and very recommendable trekking trip in the North of Vietnam. We enjoyed the beautiful landscapes, mountains, rice fields and to see how ethnic groups live in Vietnam. Nghia was a very nice guide and speaks English very well. She gave us a lot of detailed information about the local life and was also very interested on our lifes in Austria. The trekking routes were away from mass tourism in calm and peaceful locations. The homestays were very interesting (stilt houses, bamboo houses, houses made of mud). This trip is perfect for people, who would like to deeply enjoy the view of mountains, also rice fields and experience the cultural life of ethnic groups. We had our own nice car driver with a very comfortable car. Everything was well organized. We got a lot of Vietnamese food! Thank you Nghia for this great trip, we won't never forget.

          Great experience!
          Booked a 4d hiking trip with Nghia. First hike was 2d1n Fansipan. We had the local Black Hmong female guide who brought along her 9yo daughter. Truly impressed by the little girl who is so agile and can hike better than any of us! Seond hike was Ta Lien Son where Nghia came with us due to lack of English-speaking guides. The terrain was much more interesting and we managed to summit within the first day! Communication with Nghia was great and she's very accommodating to our last min changes! Definitely highly recommended!

          Gorgeous Trekking Tour
          We had a brilliant time on the three day trekking tour. Communication with the organiser and general running off the tour was great. The route was gorgeous with cosy hunts on the mountain. Also, the food was delicious and very varied. Our guides were lovely and looked after us very well.

          Very good experience
          Ha Giang - 4D5N Trekking Nghia did a splendid job in arranging the program such that it is not monotonous - from trekking route right down to where we stay and the meals we had. A very passionate and accommodating guide who make sure we get the best experience out of the trip. Would recommend her service to everyone who wishes to explore the more scenic places North Vietnam has to offer :)

        We had 3 wonderful days with our guide (and now friend) Nghia in Mu Cang Chai. Thanks her we lived the authentic life of the Nort-West Vietnam tribes and discovered fantastic landscapes and traditions. The trekking on the mountains and rice terraces is beautiful and well organized, Nghia is a very professional and caring guide who always took care about our needs and wellness. We had also some adventurous time: we crossed a river, had a shower under a waterfall and met local people to understand their life and tradition.
        We slept in two homestays that were simple but very beautiful and clean, even better than places where we stayed in other cities. They welcomed us very warmly and friendly, offering a rich and wonderful local cuisine e some funny time together.
        Nghia is a smart and professional guide, but firstly she's a great person who makes her best to connect travellers with the mountains realities. She is flexible and s he can adjust the experience on the guests phisical training.
        We totally recommend this experience with her, for us it will be unforgettable.
