Trip to Vietnam - Feb 9 - Mar 7, 2018
My wife and I just returned from an incredible month in Vietnam and Cambodia. What an incredible blend of culture, history and cuisine. We are recently retired and have always been fiercely independent travelers. I pride myself on my research and trip planning, but being Vietnam, we decided to get some local help.
After reading the positive reviews, we selected Kim Kim as our travel platform. They put us in touch with Andy Carroll, the Vietnam expert and the process was flawless. Andy was very responsive and answered all my emails promptly. He put together a proposed itinerary and we worked together on selecting hotels, side trips, museums, cooking classes, etc.
Bottom line- 30 days, five internal air flights, one overnight train, one overnight boat, two countries, 10 cities and it was flawless! Every guide and driver showed up on time, the accommodations were truly 4 and 5 star, every mode of transportation was on schedule-- I don't think that would happen in the USA!
We are culture and history tourists and the guides Andy lined up were all superior. Incredible knowledge, fairly good but certainly passable English and true ambassadors to their country and their employer. Since we were a tour group of "two", they all went out of their way to ensure we had a fantastic and flexible holiday. The guides and drivers really made the trip!!
Using an internet travel company was a big leap of faith for me (would the guides show up, would the hotel have our reservation?) but I can report unequivocally, that KimKim is worth your trust.
And I am not a guy who lavishes praise easily!!
