Colombia non-stop and loving it · Colombia - Jun 23 - Jul 3, 2022
We had a great time and it was planned well. We never would have done as much or see so much without your service. It was such a pleasure to be greeted by Oscar when we arrived at Bogota. He has so much knowledge and knew so many people along the way that made the trip extra personable. Gustvo made the coffee region exciting, fun and full of local greetings everywhere we went. Sebastian toured us throughout Medellin hitting every aspect of the city while explaining both the successes and... read more

Incredible first trip to Colombia! · Colombia - Jun 19 - Jun 27, 2022
We just returned from a magnificent vacation in Colombia planned by the amazing local specialist, Wendy. Wendy planned the perfect itinerary for us in Medellin, Zona Cafetera (coffee region) and Cali. She was so easy to communicate with leading up to the trip and checked in all the time during the trip to make sure all was going well. She coordinated amazing tours for us with local guides Samuel and John who had so much passion as guides me helped us truly appreciate the beauty of Colombia.... read more
Highly Recommend · Colombia - Jun 13 - Jun 18, 2022
I was skeptical at first, having never heard of KimKim before but Andrea was very reassuring and responsive to all my questions throughout the planning. Oscar was a phenomenal guide! He is so knowledgeable, interesting, and not boring at all! We had an awesome time. The activities were also really great. Colombia is such a beautiful country and the food is magnificent! We also had an awesome and relaxing time at Punta Faro, everyone was so attentive and accommodating. I was especially glad we... read more
A great trip! Highly recommend for families · Colombia - May 16 - May 23, 2022
Thank you Michael for planning an amazing trip for our family. We packed so much fun and adventure into each day and everyone had a blast. We really appreciated the help with a last minute request for horse back riding. It ended up being one of the highlights of the trip.
The accommodations recommended were all really lovely. Especially the eco hotels. Great service and kind people everywhere we stayed.
We really enjoyed the company and skills of our drivers and a special thank... read more
Family Trip to Columbia, May 2022 · Colombia - May 20 - May 30, 2022
Our family of four recently enjoyed the best trip to Columbia, planned and facilitated by Felipe and team. Upon deciding to visit this part of South America, I discovered KimKim and was impressed by the reviews. I sent a message and very quickly received a warm and helpful response from Felipe. While the initial itinerary was beyond our budget, he was more than happy to work with us.
Columbia is a tremendous destination, rich in history, culture and otherwise. The people are kind,... read more

Wonderful first trip to Colombia! · Colombia - May 21 - May 28, 2022
Our first trip to Colombia was nothing short of amazing! Andrea and our team of local guides (Juan Carlos and Jasmine, to name a couple) made sure everything ran seamlessly and added so many special touches to our planned experiences. We especially loved our stay at El Nido del Condor Ecolodge; it was beautiful and offered a quiet respite from the busier days touring Medellin and Cartagena. We couldn’t have thought of a better trip and would absolutely use KimKim again in the future! read more
10 days - Colombia Essentials · Colombia - Apr 23 - May 2, 2022
This has been my first experience with Kim Kim and it has been excellent through and through.
Michael and the team were super attentive and diligent from the start, when curating an itinerary according to my preferences and time available. Every request to change things I had, they were very responsive and gave me options right away.
Then, during the trip the communication was excellent, checking in with me through WhatsApp regularly and adjusting flights and timing as needed, on the go.... read more

Our trip to Colombia exceeded all of our expectations. My mom and I took a week long girl's trip to Cartagena to learn the history, see the beautiful city, and experience some of the local culture. Our specialist, Margoth, was so helpful and responsive when setting up the plans for trip. We somewhat expected that we would be on our own once we had paid for and landed in Cartagena, but Margoth and her team were beyond helpful and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Any questions or... read more
Already planning my next trip to Colombia! · Colombia - May 6 - May 11, 2022
Like a few other travelers on here, I just happened upon KimKim while doing research on our trip to Colombia, and I'm so glad I did! Andrea was an awesome travel specialist to work with. She provided great advice on what would be feasible in the time that we had, and was really flexible in changing things around based on our preferences. We even had a hiccup with food poisoning (be very careful with the tap water!) but our local guides and Andrea worked together to make sure we could recover... read more
What a fantastic way to experience Colombia! · Colombia - Mar 28 - Apr 9, 2022
This was my first experience with Kimkim. I was honestly blown away by the level of detail in the planning of the itinerary and the level of customisation available. Michael and his team went above and beyond to maintain a channel of communication and provide constant updates and information, at every stage of the trip. If I had any questions or issues, Michael was more than happy to assist- he even checked the entry requirements for the USA before I left Colombia and organised a nurse to... read more

Dream Vacation · Colombia - Apr 2 - Apr 12, 2022
This was our first time leaving the country since the pandemic and we were very nervous about travel restrictions. There were a number of things that did not go as planned with flight cancelations and delays that affected our vacation. All things out of Kim Kim's control. Michael sprung into action and made adjustments to extend our vacation, reorganized our activities and contacted the hotels and vendors. His help was priceless. Michael worked to ensure we had a wonderful, stress-free, dream... read more
Amazing trip and customer service. Highly Recommend! · Colombia - Mar 14 - Mar 23, 2022
Amazing trip and customer service. Our family of 3 had the most incredible 9 days in Colombia - split between Cartagena, Tayrona and 4 days hiking the Ciudad Perdida trail. Margoth fielded my numerous questions in advance patiently and graciously! And then once there we were still able to reach out and make tweaks to our itinerary. We ended up catching a bug on our penultimate day, and Margoth and team had the driver show up with gatorade and extra hydrating drinks. So thoughtful! We... read more

Colombia ladies' trip · Colombia - Apr 25 - May 2, 2022
Went with some girlfriends to visit another friend in Columbia. I was unsure about an online travel agency but KimKim and Michael had very good service. Our 2 main guides and all the transfers were also good.
We had some changes with another person being added after to our original plan. We also had to change the last hotel on our itinerary on the fly but I realize this was our fault as we told Michael that our friend was in Santa Marta while she was really was in Minca. So we changed on... read more
Family Trip to Medellin/Tayrona/Cartagena · Colombia - Mar 9 - Mar 19, 2022
Our family of 5 had an awesome trip to Colombia with the help of Felipe and the arrangements we made through kimkim. Felipe made the planning process easy by suggesting an itinerary and being very responsive to changes I requested before we finalized. Alba, our guide in Medellin, made us feel like family from the moment we arrived. Diva was also terrific for our time in Santa Marta and Tayrona. Staying in historic Cartagena was fun for the kids, and Eduardo was a very informative guide. The... read more
Amazing experience! · Colombia - Apr 11 - Apr 21, 2022
We had a wonderful trip to Colombia, and working with KimKim/Chaska Tours made the planning very easy. Michael listened to all my requests, and his expertise ensured we had some really interesting experiences that I would never have known to look for when planning the trip myself. I still feel like I played a part in the planning of the trip, but I didn't have to worry about making sure everything was booked as it was all done for us. KimKim also has a wealth of resources which helped with... read more

One of the BEST, most incredible trips of my life!! Huge huge thanks to Andrea, who took such wonderful care of me, and carefully planned everything, taking into account my preferences and feedback, and was always available and in contact to help with anything.

Our first trip to Colombia but not our last · Colombia - Mar 23 - Apr 4, 2022
We made a last minute decision to go on a trip to Colombia. We had very specific interests and goals and Michael's service made it easy to customize our itinerary. Communicating through WhatsApp was quick and efficient and all our questions and changes were answered promptly. The pre-trip information was detailed and organized. It would have been nice to see a breakdown of expenses as opposed to a lump sum payment. We have travelled extensively through Central and South America and feel... read more
Amazing trip, great planning · Colombia - Mar 1 - Mar 8, 2022
My husband and I had an amazing trip to Colombia through Chaska Tours this past month! We knew that going on our honeymoon right after the wedding would be a lot of planning stress, but Micheal took care of all the logistics. We were able to coordinate with the team to ensure that we fit everything important to us on our trip and made requests for hotels we really wanted to check out, and then they took care of all the logistics. Every drive from the airport pickup to transfers across the... read more

Andrea arranged all the details of our trip! We had great guides and drivers in Bogota, Medellin & Cartagena. The tours were professionally organized and... read more
Use Michael, but consider using someone other than Chaska Tours · Colombia - Mar 16 - Mar 25, 2022
Overall, Michael was very responsive, with a diverse and exciting itinerary, and would use him again!
The company, Chaska Tours, that they used for the actual services in Colombia I would give 3.5 stars. For the money that was paid, I would have expected fewer problems.
1. Driver was not ready for pickup at first airport
2. Wrong and worse hotel during one part of the trip
3. One not so good tour guide and one average one. One excellent one and one good one.
4. Missed a flight bc of... read more

Our 14 day trip to Colombia was great and we owe it all to our wonderful local specialist, Andrea.

Outstanding and adventurous 2 weeks in Colombia · Colombia - Jan 28 - Feb 11, 2022
We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the country of Colombia. Felipe and his team planned an itinerary for us that was perfect. We had outstanding guides and drivers. In particular Diva, in Santa Marta and Jose in Medellin were excellent for learning the culture, the food, the history, and all the natural beauty that their regions had to offer. Having a professional driver throughout the country was critical to a relaxing trip. The roads are good but crowded with many different types of... read more

We spent 20 days in Columbia and had a very active trip of multi day hiking, city tours, food tours and different excursions in various parts of Columbia. Andrea was there... read more
Colombia was phenomenal! · Colombia - Jan 14 - Jan 23, 2022
Colombia was phenomenal - we had such an authentic, local experience due to the effort and care put into our trip plan by our local guide, Felipe. KimKim made it easy to communicate with updates constantly through WhatsApp while we were in the country, and catered to every need we had that popped up.
Medellin was like a tropical, Spanish-speaking San Francisco - a must see! Cartagena was an enchanting colonial Spanish town. I hope to have those wooden windowsills and white walls on a latin... read more

Felipe and his associate were very responsive and available at all points, checked in with us to make sure things were running tight and we’re just super helpful. We loved Medellin and our city tour there. The restaurant reservations everywhere worked well and were appropriate for what we wanted. Cartagena was more heavily touristed than we expected but our city guide Manu was great, and the hotel was very nice,... read more
So glad we used this service! · Colombia - Dec 31 - Jan 9, 2022
So glad we used this service! COVID had really taken a lot of the fun out of planning trips since there was so much uncertainty and so many restrictions to keep track of. Rafaja's team made it so easy. We knew very little about Colombia coming in to the trip planning and Rafaja was so patient as we honed in on what we wanted and made recommendations that we never could have come up with on our own. A great example was when we went to the Pacific coast and people kept asking us how we... read more

Amazing experience with Kim Kim - especially our advisor (Margoth!) and guide (Juan Manuel) · Colombia - Dec 23 - Dec 31, 2021
I want to preface this review by saying that I've traveled to almost 50 countries, so I've had my fair share of trip planners that I've worked with. Margoth has by far been the most efficient, professional, responsive, and thoughtful one I've ever encountered!

Where to even begin! First, I believe Margoth deserves a lot of credit for her resilience in assuring me a safe and very special experience for my first ever international trip outside of the US! Having never even left the country before, I always had major doubts in myself, but something in my gut told me to go with this..
I didn’t want to do anything really typical. I didn’t want the all-inclusive resorts with lots of other US tourists. I wanted to be plummeted into another culture and... read more

In Medellin, I was also extremely happy with my driver Claudia and my guide Daniel, as well as my guide Flako in Communa 13.
What made the tours of both cities go so well, is that having one guide the whole visit means they know what you have done so far and have not done yet, so if/when schedules or interests change, they can be flexible without being redundant or missing... read more
Cartagena & KimKim · Colombia - Sep 11 - Sep 17, 2021
We had a great time in Cartagena, all the activities planned by Margoth were thoroughly enjoyed. She hit on the nail with all her suggestions.

First - we will definitely use Kimkim again for future travels! Thank you for a well-planned vacation.
Secondly - Chio was responsive and helpful - nice work! Our only complaint is that everyone knew that Tayrona National Park was closed in February - apparently it's an annual thing. If we had known this from the beginning, we might have altered our itinerary. We did not get informed until January. We really loved the place we stayed outside of Tayrona Park, but the River Don Diego... read more

Laura and the rest of the KimKim staff were incredible and easy to work with throughout the planning phase of our trip and the trip itself. They were flexible in planning as we wanted to spend less time in the large cities and more time in the countryside. Salento was the major highlight for our trip and our guide, Christian, was a pleasure to spend two days with. We highly recommend the Cocora Valley and the surrounding towns including Filandia. Our guide, Carlos, in Medellin was... read more

We loved Isabella and Alexjandra as well as our driver. They worked hard to insure that we had a good experience.
Fabulous time in Cartagena! · Colombia - Feb 4 - Feb 12, 2020
Andrea helped us put together a fabulous trip! The big component that we were concerned about was transportation, and all of our transfers were on time and completely seamless. Andrea responded in a timely manner and was very flexible in making adjustments to our trip beforehand, and while we were in Cartagena. I’m so glad that she recommended Punta Faro because it was exactly what we were looking for and was a tropical paradise. We will definitely use kimkim again to help plan the logistics and get recommendations for future trips!
Quick and Wonderful Trip in the Colombian Andes Villages · Colombia - Jan 27 - Jan 31, 2020
Natalia was very helpful, caring, and effective in working with us to plan this adventure the Colombian Andes. Even after the trip began, she maintained contact with us to ensure that we were having a great time and that things were running smoothly. She was quick to rectify a tiny glitch in scheduling. The tour guides she arranged for us were wonderful, especially the young man in Barichara.
Sister Trip to Colombia · Colombia - Jan 11 - Jan 20, 2020
I really enjoyed my trip to Colombia. It is now my favorite Latin American country. I was impressed with it's infrastructure, cleanliness and kindness of the people.
One of my favorite places I visited was Bogota and our guide Juan. The city was very clean and the graffiti murals were gorgeous. Going to the market and trying all the different fruits was a lot of fun. Juan was very knowledgeable and did a great job showing us around the city.
My favorite hotel was the Finca... read more

Cant say enough good things about this service or our interactions with Andrea. This was the first time we traveled with our adult children as a Christmas present. Lots of different personalities and interests. Andrea took time to interview me. Asked lots of questions and helped design a week with something for everyone.
We spent time in Cartagena and the Rosario Islands. Our accommodations were lovely and all our excursions well planned with terrific guides.
Thank you for all you did

Great time in Colombia! · Colombia - Dec 28 - Jan 5, 2020
I've worked with Chio from the agency and she has been really awesome.
My husband and I went to Colombia from 12/28 to 1/5/20. This was our very first time to South America and very first to Colombia. I was looking for tour guide and Kimkim.com came up in google search and I thought I'd like to try the agency. It was a such a good decision. After I contacted Kimkim, Chio got back to me within a day and she helped to plan our trip. I had very specific requirements for the types of the trips... read more
Detailed review of our Colombia itinerary · Colombia - Dec 28 - Jan 11, 2020
Overall the trip was fantastic. There were a few things we probably would have done differently if we had more knowledge about the area. Here is our detailed review of the itinerary:
Day 1: Everything went well with the transportation from the airport to the hotel. The hotel was great. The only critique we have for the hotel is the lack of breakfast options. But the hotel was in a great location and we would stay there again.
Day 2: Awesome bike tour. We really liked our guide and... read more

First, let me say that we enjoyed our trip and have no regrets. Kimkim and you generally did an excellent job. The hotels were generally a pleasure, with a great deal of character. There were odds and ends they could do better, but we were quite happy with them. The pace we had worked out gradually before the trip was just about right. We had enough time to simply wander on our own, which we value. I think there is a tendency to try to pack in too much, and we were glad we had pushed... read more

We had a super time and felt very supported. Chio was there for every little question I had! All the drivers, hotels and tour people were on-time and extra nice. I'm so pleased.
Memorable Trip · Colombia - Dec 21 - Dec 31, 2019
Our 10 day trip to Colombia was a very memorable one. We weren't sure what to expect, but were pleasantly surprised. Beautiful country and people. Natalia was extremely helpful and responsive to all our questions, queries and concerns. she was connected via whats app and available for any questions during our trip. Since our trip was in December, she was even working on the 25th addressing our needs. From putting the itinerary together and catering to our specific requirements; Natalia was... read more
Travelling in Colombia with four children · Colombia - Dec 24 - Jan 4, 2020
My husband and I travelled in Colombia with our four children (ages 11-15) and overall we very satisfied with the kimkim experience. The planning stage was fantastic-- I spoke with an agent in the US and also an agent in Colombia-- and it was very easy to come up with a specific itinerary to fit the needs and wants of my family. Our local specialist (Chio) was very responsive to my questions and requests and always responded in a timely manner.
For the most part, everyone involved in... read more

The best Colombian experience · Colombia - Dec 26 - Jan 6, 2020
Working with KimKim made my boyfriend and i’s trip that much better! Fabian was awesome, he gave every option I asked for. From seeing multiple cities and including day trips, drivers and hotels at every stop, Fabian wasn’t pushy on the itinerary and was so helpful with all my questions. He set all my nerves as ease going into the trip and allowed for my boyfriend to just enjoy Colombia and not worry about the itinerary.
Throughout the trip, Chio who replaced Fabian (as Fabian sought out a... read more

Kimkim does make things much easier, but it's not the best option if you want to save money.
For flights and hotels, we saved more than $500 booking everything on our own.
Cartagena was great and it's the place I would have spent more time.
The guide in Medellin was awesome and explained everything we saw and asked about!
However, the guide in Bogotá was quite different. His English wasn't very good so it wasn't very easy to communicate. Perhaps this was the reason why he didn't explain... read more
The trip was great and we enjoyed it · Colombia - Dec 26 - Jan 3, 2020
The trip was great and we enjoyed it.
Chio was very good all the way and was very responsive to our needs and did her best to solve any problem we had.
I have an issue, however with the team that designed the trip. Here are some points:
The transport company in Medallin was bad. Out of the three trips with them there were two problems. On the second one, they simply sent the driver with the wrong name, as a result, he ignored our sign and it caused delay.
The trip to Nuqui was good, but we... read more
Excellent Family Adventure · Colombia - Dec 19 - Dec 31, 2019
The trip was excellent! We loved the activities and guides (especially Samuel, Diego, and Manuel). The one day that could be improved was the trip from Cartagena to the island since we did not realize the car ride would be so long and in a group bus (we would have prepared better and brought a car seat).

I recommend the Kimkim team in Colombia without reservations. We had a fantastic trip and I could not have asked for a better agency to work with.
In terms of the initial planning, they patiently helped me through deciding whether to go to Colombia or Peru, which areas to cover, and worked with me through my endless questions and changes. Lisa and Chio worked out an amazing itinerary for our family based on our stated interests, and changed it with only a few weeks to go when it turned out... read more
10 extensive days in the beautiful Colombia · Colombia - Nov 14 - Nov 22, 2019
We had a great experience planning our trip with Laura and the KimKim team.
All our drives we're nice and polite the vehicles were very clean, in all cases except once our drivers arrived on time.
Our guides were great and we got to ask them about their daily life and learn a lot more about Colombian culture. In general the tours outside the city were more comprehensive then the city tours. We especially enjoyed our in and around Valle de Cocora tour with the wonderful Mauricio, who was full... read more
Wonderful 10 days trip to Colombia · Colombia - Nov 14 - Nov 22, 2019
We had a wonderful 10 days trip to Colombia. From start to finish our experience with Laura in Kim Kim was perfect. She gave us plenty of options and listen to our feedback and needs and answered all very promptly and kindly.
I would highly recommend using her services.
The guides were good and I wish to particularly mention Mauricio who walked us through the Valle de Cocoa and Salento. His knowledge, energy and beautiful way made it the favourite part of our trip!!!

All of our guides were exceptional! Lina in Bogata, Mauricio in Villa de Leyva, Natalia in Pereira, Daniel in Medellin, Juan in Tayrona Park, Carolina for the cooking lesson and Ingrid in Cartagena. The guides were all very knowledgeable and obviously proud of their wonderful country.
We enjoyed all of the things we experienced. A couple of things that stood out were the visit to the coffee farm that was run by women, the visit to Bazurto market with a local that knows her way around. We... read more

A few comments.
Perfect Hotels ! Authentic , clean , good breakfast , very nice service. ( Bantu and Punta Faro at Isla
Uncomfortable feeling in transfers and overall pick ups as I did not have direct contact - until I asked for WhatsApp contact and even with that not always responded to in real time. I ended up talking to Laura once as we planned - internet communications is uncomfortable as I can’t reference back as I can with emails.
Overall all transfer were fine, as was... read more
