France is known for its world-class wines, picturesque countryside, and variegated history. With the help of our local experts, you'll discover both the highlights and hidden treasures of Paris, stroll through romantic hidden villages and indulge in French gastronomy to your heart's content. In this article, we'll go over how kimkim will help you craft the perfect French adventure.

Why choose kimkim?

Connect directly to a local specialist in France. We’re passionate about creating a trip with authentic flavor and unique experiences that speak to your personality. Planning with us means working with an experienced, creative, and highly-vetted local specialist who lives and works in France and will collaborate one-on-one with you to create the ideal vacation.

Your trip will be personalized to your specific tastes. Whether you’re interested in history, wine-tasting, trekking or cycling, our specialists will put together the trip that is right for you. Their insights add immense value to the process—this is what sets kimkim's trip planning apart.

Secure & Easy Booking

Once you are 100% happy with your trip plan, you'll be able to easily book your entire trip through kimkim's secure payment platform.

Meaningful Experiences

Our focus is on creating meaningful experiences that immerse you in French culture. Sometimes this means taking lesser-known (but just as beautiful) routes to avoid the crowds, and sometimes it means seeing the main highlights in a unique way.

We understand that not everyone wants to get completely off the grid—so even if you want to hit France's most popular sites, you'll still have an authentic experience. You'll take a local-led tour through the sweetest pâtisseries in Paris, visit family-run wineries on a road trip through Provence, and leave the crowded streets of Mont Saint-Michel behind to discover the lesser-trafficked ramparts.

We're just as excited about travel as you are, meaning we seek out these experiences ourselves and then go the extra mile to ensure you have a memorable and meaningful experience.

Customizing Your Perfect Trip

Once we have a sense of who you are and what you’re looking for, you’ll be matched with the right specialist for you. That might be based on the region of France you’re looking to visit or activities you’re interested in. Because of their expertise and experience, they’ll also steer you toward the right location and time of year for your ideal adventure.

Your customized experience will also incorporate personalized approaches to accommodation, local guides, and even transportation. Our French specialists like to keep excursions meaningful with private tours or intimate group settings. Rather than being dropped off with 100 other people at the base of the Eiffel Tower, imagine having a guide point out architectural marvels and history in an equally impressive but lesser-known setting away from the crowds.

We only want you to interact with the best of the best at every point on your vacation. That’s why every professional you’ll work with on your trip—from hotel proprietors to drivers—are continuously evaluated by our specialists.  

Local Specialists, Insider Knowledge

Our experts give suggestions based on traveler reviews and their own personal experience—not on who gives the highest commission. Their tips and insight not only add immense value to our process but set us and our style apart from our competitors.

These are experts who have spent years putting together tours and who know the value that creativity and insight bring to your vacation. They are also proud ambassadors of France, and they want to show you the best the country has to offer. 

In-Destination Support and Suggestions

Before your trip to France, you'll receive a trip roadmap from your local specialist. This will include all pertinent information about pick-up times, activity durations, and hotels for each night. In addition, it will often include restaurant recommendations and insider tips for how to spend your free time in each location.

Kimkim’s travel experts are also there for you after you’ve decided on all of the details and are ready to take-off for your adventure. Your local specialist and their team will be available 24-hours a day to help once you land in France. That means anything from making a personalized restaurant recommendation to facilitating last-minute changes to your itinerary (whenever possible) to assisting you if you hit a snag in your travel plans.
