Why choose kimkim?
Connect directly to a local specialist. We’re passionate about customizing 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 will work one-on-one with you to create the ideal vacation.
Your trip will be personalized to your specific tastes. Whether you’re interested in white-water rafting and wine tasting, exploring caves and island hopping, or seeing ancient ruins away from the crowds—with a guide who highlights secret treasures of even the most visited sites.
This commitment to experiences and attention starts with our quick and fun onboarding process and continues through the length of your stay in Greece.
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 Greece you’re looking to visit (like the Peloponnese and Crete) or activities you’re interested in (like trekking or cooking). Because of their expertise and experience, they’ll also steer you toward the right location and time of year for your ideal adventure, ensuring you have access to fantastic trails for hiking and perfect weather for canyoning or skiing.
Your customized experience will also incorporate personalized approaches to lodging, guides, and even transportation. Our Greek specialists like to keep excursions meaningful by eschewing “bus excursions” in favor of private tours or intimate group settings. Rather than being dropped off with 30 other people on an island in the Cyclades, imagine having a guide point out architectural marvels and history as she walks you to a private studio visit with a local craftsman in a town you wouldn’t have thought of visiting on your own.
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 know the value that creativity and insight bring to your vacation. They are also passionate tourists and proud ambassadors of Greece, eager to bring you to an island you've never heard of or a picturesque sea cave you wouldn't have otherwise visited because they want to show you the best the country has to offer.
Access to Hidden Gems
Our focus is on creating meaningful experiences that immerse you in Greek culture. You’ll be led to Greece’s hidden gems: think hiking the monasteries in Meteora, trekking through gorges on Crete, kayaking the caldera in Santorini, or visiting a marble-sculpting atelier on the island of Tinos.
Unique Ways to Experience Greece's Highlights
Not everyone wants to get completely off the grid—but even if you want to hit Greece's most popular sites and cities, kimkim ensures a customized experience.
If you’re a culinary enthusiast eager to visit the Peloponnese, your specialist may suggest a visit to olive groves in Kalamata. You can meet farmers, see the pressing process of fresh olive oil, and do a tasting or even a cooking class that teaches with incredibly fresh local produce.
Likewise, if you’re excited to visit some of the most famous—and notoriously touristy—sites from the ancient world, your specialist will match you with a guide who gets you out of the fray of foot traffic. Take a personalized tour based on what excites you, be it architecture, art history, or more.
Experience Athens and Crete like a local, learning about traditions, customs, and culture in an intimate setting, rather than in a big group, or trying to navigate on your own with a guidebook.
In-Destination Support and Suggestions
Kimkim’s travel experts are also there for you after you’ve decided on the details of your trip. Not only will your specialist provide with additional tips so you can make the most out of your vacation, but we are available to help once you land in Greece. That means anything from suggesting a perfect taverna on Mykonos to facilitating last minute changes to your itinerary (whenever possible) or assisting you if you hit a snag in your travel plans.
