Fantastic And well organised trip · Vietnam - Jan 1 - Jan 16, 2020
Alex was incredible to deal with. From our first contact on KimKim, she was always available and made a great effort to really understand what we wanted. The trip went exactly as planned. Absolutely no issues along the way. And when we did have an issue on our home bound flight which had absolutely nothing to do with her, she was there helping us with last minute accomodation.
Alex also made an effort to come and meet us while in Hanoi.
The accomodation was great all the way through, Of... read more
5* itinerary with KimKim · Vietnam - Dec 23 - Jan 13, 2020
Our trip organised by kimkim was 5*. The trip was so well organsied; we didn't have To worry about anything. All our tour guides were excellent, knowledgeable and flexible which really helped with 3 young children. The accomodation waa faultless and our drivers were all on time and safe. We went back and forth on the intinerary for while and Thuy, our adviser, was happy to change, amend and suggest things as appropriate and didn't mind the back ans forth.

Vietnam · Vietnam - Dec 21 - Jan 4, 2020
The experience booking was extremely helpful for someone who does not enjoy or have time to plan a long trip. It was great having guides when we traveled into less touristy areas, and I really appreciated having all the transportation pre-arranged with no day of coordination required. We particularly enjoyed our guide Phạm Khiêm who took us on an over night trip to Pu Luong.

Tour guide Mr. Vy was very knowledgeable, and very friendly. I enjoyed his company. We were able to interact with the locals through Mr. Vy, particularly at Mai Chau. The bicycle ride at Mai Chau is good. It is unfortunate that we picked the wrong time to come and miss the rice field growing season. It would have been beautiful. At Ninh Binh, I really enjoyed this leg. The hotel was fantastic. Mr. Vy recommended us to bicycle to Hang Mua, and that was great. I totally enjoyed the... read more
Northern Vietnam Trip · Vietnam - Dec 22 - Dec 28, 2019
Our trip to Hanoi organized by Nga via kimkim was great. From the start, Nga was able to customize our trip to fit our schedule & needs. Accommodating our various requests, she was able to give us various options to choose from especially during this holiday peak season. We spent 5 days in Hanoi and our local guide Chris was fantastic as well. Nga and Chris from Footprint were very helpful throughout the trip and would highly recommend them!
Wonderful Relaxing North Vietnam Holiday · Vietnam - Dec 8 - Dec 14, 2019
This was a wonderful trip arranged by Victor from KimKim travel and with local guide specialist Nga. It was off peak and my family had the luxury of the full 9 sitter van to ourselves served by 1 driver (Mike) and 1 local guide (Tom). They have local names but it was too difficult for me to remember.
There was a lot of driving and the driver was key to a safe and pleasant journey throughout. The local tour guide gave a very nice tour of North Vietnam mountainous beauty and experience of... read more
Wonderful Vietnam trip to celebrate our 25th Anniversary · Vietnam - Dec 3 - Dec 4, 2019
Miss Linh did a fabulous job! Our only trouble was not understanding that we had to take care of the Vietnam Visa ourselves. However, she ended up handling it for us and even did the fast track. I would recommend KimKim or the agency for Vietnam take care of it and include it in their fees because most Americans don't know how to do the Visa on their own. We were so worried about the Hong Kong portion of the trip that we overlooked doing the visa ourselves. Anyway that got resolved and she... read more

Riding With Grasshopper · Vietnam - Oct 24 - Nov 27, 2019
We had a specific requirement to accommodate our own tandem bike. Kimkim and Grasshopper Adventures were very attentive to that and made it happen.
Our trip was a chain of itineraries beginning in Bankok and ending in Hanoi, with the mix of companions changing as we went. At one time we were 16 (a bit over the promised limit of 15) but on the final leg we were the only travelers, making it a private tour with a guide, a passenger van and a service truck and two drivers! A bit much for a... read more

Wonderful Sapa trip with Local Guide Ms May · Vietnam - Oct 25 - Oct 28, 2019
We had a wonderful trip to Sapa with Ms May who picked us up from Lao Cai Train Station.
Ms May was helpful and took good care of us throughout the trip. She was with us from the start of our Sapa tour till the end where she sent us off at the Lao Cai Train Station for us to take our overnight train back to Hanoi.
During our tour in Sapa, she showed us the ways of the local and we went to the less crowded spots to have a splendid view of rice terraces. As it is very crowded to queue for the... read more
Vietnam 2019 · Vietnam - Oct 1 - Oct 10, 2019
I booked a trip to Vietnam with Ms. Thuy and she set everything up. We set off in Hanoi and out guide was great. He knew the area and was knowledgable about the sites we saw. We then had a few days in Tuy Hoa which we did ourself. This agency lets you customize trips to your liking and needs. I love that. We ended our trip in Saigon which was great too. Guide was great and was knowledgable. I would recommend Kim Kim. Great trip planning experience.

Thuy was simply amazing. She was attentive and available at all times in the planning process and on our trip. Everything was seamless from our drivers picking us up on time to the expert guides and the lovely accommodations, we really could not have asked for more. My husband and I typically plan our own trips but with recent busy work schedules we really needed someone to step in and make sure all the details were nailed down & Ms Thuy did this flawlessly. She was willing to let us... read more

Our trip to Vietnam exceeded our expectations in every way. Victor put together an itinerary that was perfect for our group. He answered all of our enquiries promptly and was very flexible to suit any request we made.
Our English speaking guides were very friendly and more than willing to share their knowledge of Vietnam, its history and way of life. Our transport was comfortable and always on time.

Saigon to Dalat · Vietnam - Mar 30 - Apr 9, 2019
We booked 2 trips with Victor. The first was a 3 day trip to Cat Tien and then transport on to Dalat. The driver was great, the car very comfortable. We did choose to upgrade our accommodations at Cat Tien due to the extreme heat and humidity and felt we needed to have air conditioning. He arranged for several events in the park, which went well. Overall, we were pleased with his planning!!

The overall experience was excellent. The guides chosen were knowledgable and the trip was organized very well. The accommodations were excellent.
Alex was excellent overall. She communicated well and on time. The only glitch we encountered, was we missed our pick up to Halong Bay. This cost us additional fees. We would have appreciated 10-15 minutes to go over the entire itinerary upon arrival with confirmation of times etc., or daily updates/ reminders by email.
In summary, our... read more
Shopping · Vietnam - Mar 11 - Mar 16, 2019
On many of the locations that we visited the detailed information could show that walking in gravel and dirt pathways should be know so as to not ware your best footwear. Asking us if we had out swimwear when in-route to the Delta was not good. That river is very dirty and to swim for someone from the US is not even a question to ask. Also the car travel time to locations should be included so that trips to areas are not booked without reason. Many of the things advertised to tour in the... read more

Working with Victor was excellent and he was always super responsive. We were very happy with his services. We probably did too much travelling in the course of our 2 weeks, our fault as we wanted to see a lot. We had little time to plan our trip so more guidance on how much we could realistically see would have been useful. Overall we could have concentrated our trip in North Vietnam and the Central zone, leaving out the Mekong delta. To get to the delta we travelled for 1 day, by car... read more

Victor made planning so easy, from helping with the itinerary, booking hotels and internal flights, private tours with great guides, transfers and getting our visa letters. He was always available if we had any questions while in Vietnam.

Had a great holidays in Hanoi and Sapa. Fortunate to be blessed with good weather in both locations, although the cloud was a bit too low when we were in Sapa. Hence, missed the beutiful view of the valley from the Heavens Gate. On the whole, it was a good programme planned by Alex. The local guides were good and helpful.

My trip to Vietnam was packed with highlights. Here are the tops:
1) My first few days in Hanoi were great. I really enjoyed Kien and his historical perspective that he was able to provide about Hanoi and Vietnam. It was clear that he studied history at the university, and had many interesting stories and perspectives to share. I walked away with a very rich view of Hanoi and Vietnam, both historically and present day. Kien also let me take my time and come back to him with questions which... read more

I could not fault Kimkim tours. It was so well organized. They really want you to have a great experience. Alex is a huge asset to the company. English was perfect. Alex looked after us from start to finish. She responded to our text right away, whenever we needed her.
We had a problem with our visa (completely our fault) Alex helped us all the way.

Saigon to Angkor in 8 Days · Vietnam - Nov 5 - Nov 11, 2018
Our trip was fantastic. we were in Vietnam for 2 weeks total but 8 days were with the Grasshopper tour and they were definitely the best days of the trip. I especially loved being in the villages and meeting the people and seeing the details of community life. We passed by many towns and stopped to meet the villagers that were working in their homes, making baskets, cleaning rice, creating machetes, etc. the villagers were warm and welcoming.
The food on the trip was fantastic; the... read more

It was simply amazing! From the early planning to the quick response to our pre visit questions, Adam and Ging we’re wonderful. We couldn’t have asked for more.
Both our Vietnam crew and Cambodian crew were fabulous. We fell in love with both countries because of them and had an truly authentic experience. I could write for hours about how great each guide, mechanic and driver were. They were kind, funny, unbelievably helpful and knowledgeable!
We can’t wait to recommend them to others!
Thank you so much to all of them!

Overall, the trip was great. I would appreciate more details prior to the trip. Mike was great but he wasn’t needed the entire time. I didn’t know we would have a full time tour guide. We didn’t really need that. We would have preferred 2 hotel rooms and might have paid extra at a few sites to have that. Again, we didn’t know in advance what we had. In Hanoi and Hoi An, the room was way too small for 3 people, especially Hoi An since it was 3 nights. I might have settled for a lower... read more

The experience from first conversation with Andy to the last adventure on the Vespa tour of Saigon and each incredible adventure in between was perfection! Our guides and driver in each city (Hanoi, Hoi Ann, Mae Chau, Saigon) were professionals, full of knowledge and fun. We fell in love with Hoi Ann and wish we could have spent more time there!

I had bit of a negative review on our onsite local tour guide at Hanoi and I've given that input to Victor. He was very professional and made sure my feedback was heard.

We wanted a trip that covered the main tourist areas, as well as getting out to some of the national parks to see the birds and wildlife.

The guides and in country contacts from Exotic Voyages were great. There was one change made to the itinerary after our deposit that was unacceptable. It involved an eighteen hour trip on a non express train. The in country contact (Giang) was wonderful in dealing with the problem, and more than made us happy.

VIETNAM CENTRAL HIGHLAND 3 DAYS · Vietnam - Dec 30 - Jan 1, 2018
Had a good trip . Good driver and guide . V interesting tours.
Food was also V good.
Only disappoint was the second nights accommodation, described as a homestay, l have stayed in many homestays across vietnam while they are all different this one could not be described as a homestay as there was nobody living there!
Because of this although I enjoyed the tour l would not use you again or recommend you as the homestay sold was not genuine. I appreciate the original homestay was not available but the one provide was not acceptable.
Vietnam · Vietnam - Nov 27 - Dec 13, 2017
The trip was simply amazing. We loved all our hotels as well as our guides. The only area we were disappointed with was communication with Andy. He never checked in with us once during our 17 days in Vietnam and Cambodia. When we emailed him from the states he was slow to respond and sometimes failed to address our questions. When we emailed him from Vietnam he was slow to respond, sometimes inaccurate in his responses and one time failed to respond at all, regarding a timely issue.

Andy went through all the details prior to our visit, so when we arrived, the trip was tailored to exactly what we had asked. The organization, once we were in Vietnam, was excellent. Someone was always waiting to meet us, and the guides were all friendly and informative.
No effort was spared to make little tweaks and changes. Correspondence was friendly and made us feel very comfortable about trusting Andy with our trip.

Really impressive timely response and really appreciated the flexibility to make changes to accommodate different dates. Having now visited Vietnam our only comment would be that it would perhaps have been good to get more and wider suggestions to choose from to tailor the trip e.g. a cooking experience or an interesting stop on the car journey from Sapa to Hanoi. it did feel a bit as if we were on the 'standard' tourist circuit that could have been booked fairly easily locally - although the... read more
