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."

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 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
Highlights of Vietnam - 9 Days · Vietnam - Jul 4 - Jul 13, 2019
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.
The highlights of northern Vietnam were the evening street food tour of Hanoi by Vespa,... read more
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!!
Our other trip was a 10 day tour of North Vietnam beginning in Hanoi, and traveling up along the... read more
Highlights of Vietnam - 12 Days · Vietnam - Mar 1 - Mar 15, 2019
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
Best of Vietnam - 14 Days · Vietnam - Dec 23 - Jan 7, 2019
the trip was amazing and we were well looked after throughout! Especially the Tu Lan cave-trip was absolutely stunning and amongst the best I have ever experienced. The kids were completely in awe and we will all never forget the trip, the many friends we made and the many experiences we made. It is impossible to list all the other experiences but clearly, each component had its own value and exceeded our expectations.
Our guide for the food tour was very good, friendly,... read more
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... read more
Highlights of Vietnam - 9 Days · Vietnam - Sep 29 - Oct 7, 2018
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
Highlights of Vietnam - 9 Days · Vietnam - May 11 - May 19, 2018
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
