As one of the Co-Founders and Project Manager, Thanh is forced to be the one to keep everyone on task. Although, never without humor. Laughter and creativity at work is Thanh’s formula for success. He is a photographer who loves his country and does not have just one favorite place. Thanh can tell you the highlights of everywhere in Vietnam - many of which he has probably explored on two wheels - and always will include some of his own, brilliant photographs with his descriptions.

Huyen or her lovely nick name Hanna, is proud to be the shortest and the most fiery person in the Footprint family. She finished her tourism studies years ago and knows that she has found the right choice in tourism. "Travel is a spirit of life, I'm married to travelling and I can't never live without him", says Hanna. She works hard daily on her work to complete the tasks assigned and is always willing to do more than given - this is what she calls her personal value.
