I love traveling, I have been traveling to most places in Vietnam. Travel is to learn more about the life of the locals, not just a holiday and more important is about to keep the destinations better for our future generation to come back, that's why we set up Footprint Travel to show people around the World about Vietnam and Indochina while making it sustainable.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"We specialise in Vietnam, and with Laos and Cambodia. We love to take you off the beaten path on a soft adventure, such as walking, trekking or cycling trips, however, we are 100% tailor-made to your expectation."

How did you get involved in travel?

"When i was a high school student, my family has took me on a journey around the north of Vietnam, I visited many places from mountain to sea that was the inspiration for me to apply to the tourism university. In 2010, I graduated the University of Tourism then I started my job as a travel consultant to help travelers worldwide to know more about Vietnam."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I have visited many caves in Vietnam but Paradise cave is one of the biggest caves I have ever seen. It's a part of Phong Nha Cave system. This cave is very well worth to visit, the stalactites and stalagmites are amazing. And the variety of rock formation and colours are incredible. This is the must thing to do when travel to the centre of Vietnam."

Camellia did a nice job planning and executing our trip. Here are a few comments about the itinerary and overall experience of our time in Vietnam.

The eight day trip gave us a great sense of the northern regions of Vietnam. Four destinations in eight days was a bit more ambitious than we might have liked. Since we spent so much time in the van en route to Mai Chau, Ninh Binh, Ha Long Bay, and back to Hanoi, perhaps three destinations rather than four would have been a bit better. The hotels were all nice with pleasant service.

Our guide Hiep was a lot of fun and shared interesting information about the country. Our driver, Mr. Hong, was also very good and helpful. I would say that Hiep tended to be a bit more reactive than proactive in terms of telling us about the culture and history of the country. That said, we enjoyed our time with him.

We found that a couple of the activities didn't quite map to the description. The "food tour" in Hanoi as described didn't happen. We sat down to eat at one location for Bun Cha, then walked around the neighborhood without stopping to taste or learn about different kinds of foods. By the end, we had a chance to have Bahn Mi, but were tired and by that point and just returned to the hotel after coffee (and didn't learn anything about egg coffee, as an example of something that was described in the write up, but never happened). By comparison, a food tour we did through Kim Kim in the Netherlands included about seven different spots to try seven different dishes and learn about them. Also, the bike rides were more challenging than expected so Carla didn't have a good experience. I have more experience cycling so they were fun for me.

The food was all good and we particularly enjoyed the opportunity to make spring rolls in a home in Hanoi. We appreciate Camellia's and Hiep's efforts to explain Carla's food allergies at all of the meals to keep her safe.

Overall, we enjoyed our time in Vietnam and are grateful for the different experiences that were organized for us.

Ninh Binh was also out of this world; I recommend it 100%! We did a two-hour hike with Daniel in Pu Luong, despite it not being harvest time, the rice paddies looked stunning, filled with water. The sunset reflecting on them prompted us to appreciate the beauty of nature, and witnessing the dedicated work of the locals in the area only deepened our admiration. Our hotels were all super good! The locations were super central, allowing us to walk around in our free time. We also had the Footprint Travel team check on us every few days, which was super valuable. We also enjoyed the gastronomy, history, and culture of Vietnam! It's such a BEAUTIFUL country with the sweetest people. It's definitely on my list to go back and explore other areas. Thank you, Camellia, for this amazing trip that my mom and I will forever remember!

Mai Chau was a complete surprise for us! We stopped there for a short hike around the rice paddy fields and had lunch there. It is a super beautiful village and a great first contact with nature. It was good that we only went there for lunch as apparently it gets quite busy with tourists and locals, and we also went on a Monday, which really helped! The food and the views were amazing. Then we drove to Pu Luong, which was astonishing. The hike was beautiful, and it was great that our guide gave us the option on how long we wanted the hike to last, we decided on 2 hours, and it was the best option, as the route we took gave us the most amazing views.

The trip went off okay. The pluses were the transfers , as they were all on time and the accommodations all were amazing! There was a few small issues with Quan our guide in Hanoi. First it was hard to understand him at times and we know he didn't understand us a lot of the times we asked questions. We understand English was his second language however when you are assigning a guide to an English speaking group you should make sure they have and understand enough English to carry out their tour successfully. In addition to the language barrier we felt Quan wasn't as truthful as he could/should have been. We felt, at times, that he was making up answers just to provide one when he should have just said he didn't know the answer or understand the questions. In addition to these issues our guide feel asleep numerous times when we were in route to different places. We understand that he didn't need to provide constant commentary the entire time however he should have been available for us if and when we wanted to ask something about the sights...instead we resisted because we didn't want to wake him.

In regard to the tour itself, we had issues with the bike portion of the tour. We thought, according to the description, that the village tour was going to be in a quiet remote/rural area however the first portion of the ride was through a very busy village and we had to keep dodging motorbikes/cycles, cars and trucks which wasn't just dangerous but NO FUN! The second portion of the bike ride, through the flower village, was a little less trafficed however because of the season we didn't see the flowers in bloom so you should either offer this tour when the flowers are in season or disclose to the tourists/customers that seeing flowers will be dependent upon the season.

Another issue we had was the fact that most of the restaurants that we visited were also visited by many other tour buses therefore the restaurants were busy, causing our meals to come out at different times even to the point that sometime one person would be finished with his/her meal before others even get theirs. In regard to the restaurants choices should be given to the travelers and they shouldn't have to go to the same restaurants that all other tour buses go too.

Now that I have expressed my disappointment in the tour I will say that there were some really great highlights to the tour. One was the Halong Bay cruise. Not only was it an amazingly beautiful but our guy Thai was amazing as well, we really enjoyed him. But by far we truly LOVED Micky our guide in Cambodia. He was funny, truthful, provided picture images to go along with his verbal explanations and was all around a very good guide.

The experiences such as kayak, cruise, cycling into the towns, and boats were breathtaking. The nature and the cities are vibrant and rich in culture, history and wild landscapes.
A special thanks goes to our first and favorite guide Mr Binh, Mr Binh was outstanding and super passionate about what he does, you can see and feel his love for the country. He teached us a lot of what he knew, made us feel safe and welcome. The adventures with him are something we will always bring with us. We want to give the highest rating possible to him, he really made a big difference in our trip. The transfer guy (we don't remember the name sorry!) who was with us and Mr Binh during our trip was also very polite and gentle, we enjoyed his driving skills and company. The second guide Mr Huan was also very pleasant and prepared on Hue's history. We enjoyed his tales, stories and anecdotes. The driver together with Mr Huan was also very nice, we enjoyed the music he was playing and he was very courteous. Hue's history is full of wonders and we were glad to get a bite. So far the experience was amazing. Minh was always present for us, thanks to Minh we never felt alone and if something was happening he was on top of it. He was sending us messages to let us know flights/details or anything really. Top evaluation for him, not sure how much is the maximum but he deserves it!
The third guide, unfortunately, was not at the same level as the first two... we don't want to ruin his reputation or bad mouth him, however, we did not really enjoy the time with him for different reasons. On the other hand, the places where we went and the activities kept being amazing. So overall the experience with kim kim is a 4,9 stars out of 5!

Camellia was very responsive to all our questions and very easy to work with. Our trip in the loop was fantastic! Our guide Pho was knowledgable, flexible, personable and made my wife and I feel very comfortable during the 4 - 5 day tour. The scenery was breathtaking, and the local communities and it's people were welcoming. We'll definitely be using KimKim again.
