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."

Best of vietnam - 14 days, Vietnam - Dec 21 - Jan 3, 2019

I would, and have recommended Kimkim to help plan any trip. We used them for the first time to help plan our trip to Croatia and had such a good experience we used them again for Vietnam. 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.

Khai was a great guide in Ho Chi Minh City and thanks to him we made our flights to Danang when there was a small problem at the airport with our names. The Vespa tour we went on one evening with Linda and her team was one our favorite things.
In Hoi An, we were well taken care of by our guide Than. Our hotel there, Golden Holiday, was the best and Hoi An was amazing.
Last but not least, our guide Anh in Hanoi was fantastic. She is energetic and loved telling us all sorts things about Vietnam life.
Needless to say thanks to Victor and his team we had one of the best trips we have ever taken and loved every minute of Vietnam.

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

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 rated hotel and had 2 rooms. So my primary feedback is to provide more detail of what we were getting so we could have more choices. The cooking class had a half day and full day choice. I would have preferred half day.

Hey guys.

Victor was a great operator. From beginning to end, he was responsive and explained things very well. 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. In my business, the question I always ask my customers is: Would you recommend our services to your friends, family and associates? I would definitely recommend KimKim to my friends and look forward to using you... read more

On the note of the Hanoi tour guide, I've given my feedback to Victor and would follow up with him. (the tour was actually great, but the person giving the tour was mediocre at best)

Thank you.
