My husband and I chose the 17 day self guided Best of Croatia Tour, and it was a fabulous itinerary customized by Robi. We have really appreciated all of the patience that Robi has shown us throughout this process (since it initially was scheduled for Fall of 2020. Throughout the pandemic lockdown Robi and I kept in touch, and he never pressured us at all to book, but was kind and understanding of our desire to come when we felt it was the right time.
Our trip was outstanding and we felt that we really did experience "the Best of Croatia". Robi's suggestions for our itinerary were excellent. We liked starting in Zagreb, the capital, and appreciated our tour of the highlights of the capital city with Bruno, who was so passionate about his country! Part of the excitement of traveling for us is learning about the history and getting a glimpse into the culture, and Bruno did that! We were happy that Robi suggested to drive to the north of Croatia to visit the Trakoscan Castle - I loved how the furniture is still set up in their place and you can almost imagine how it was back in the 14th century! Also we were happily surprised at the beautiful highways that Croatia has, they are all so pristine and it was a pleasure to travel on them. We also appreciated the GPS that Robi made sure was in our rental.
We adored Istria and indeed it did remind us of Tuscany, so lovely. The little towns of Groznjan was super cute, as was Motovun. Porec was gorgeous and we will always remember the delicious seafood meal we had at Konoba Aba!
Plitvice was a highlight - I am so happy that Robi booked our accommodation near the park entrance the night before, as we were almost the first to enter the park, and seeing those stunning waterfalls almost by ourselves was just the best. We can understand how busy the park gets later on in the day or in the summer months, and it would have been a lesser experience, had we gone when it was crowded-it was perfect.
Each day was planned perfectly by Robi, with so much thought and consideration. He would send us pins each night for the following day, and so we were able to navigate the driving part all so well, and did not have to use data (which Robi taught us)!
There were so many highlights along the way - we loved the city of Zadar - it is full of character, and it is so beautiful, with the sea organ providing a wonderful ambience-just loved it!
Robi also placed us in accommodation right at the gates of Krka - he suggested we catch the first boat and we did-Krka is simply breathtaking!! The power of those waterfalls in incredible. We enjoyed the best Sea Bass of our lived in Skradin at Konoba Dalmatino.
We left our rental car in Split. Robi arranged for a walking tour of Split and it was a fantastic tour of the Diocletian's Palace.
Next we took the ferry to Hvar. This was our favorite island. It had a good "vibe", and we did not even party there (they call it the party island). It is just a gorgeous Medieval town, with quaint alleys full of little shops and restaurants. Robi booked "The DeVecchi Rooms" - our favorite-absolutely adorable, and again, the perfect location for walking everywhere. We took a beach day on Hvar at Ponkoji Dol Beach - you can walk from Old town-stay on the sea wall, don't follow Google maps-the walk on the sea wall is so pretty and the beach is lovely!
Then off to Korcula, another island with lots of vineyards, and a few beaches. We did a bike and wine tour here, and loved every minute of it.
Robi arranged for the driver, Goran, to pick us up in Korcula, take us on the car ferry to the Peljasic Peninsula, where we embarked on the BEST, most BREATHTAKING bike ride of our lives, along the coastline of the peninsula. Goran also took us to an amazing Vineyard where we sampled a few delicious red wines. This day was a definite highlight for us! And from there Goran drove us to Ston, where we walked the walls and had yet another seafood feast at Konoba Bakus-delicious!
Goran picked us up from Ston the next morning and onto our last stop-Dubrovinik. This walled city does not disappoint - it is jaw dropping!! We were not big fans of Split, but we LOVED Dubrovinik. The wall is incredible, and the stories from Antea, our walking guide in Dubrovnik were fascinating. Antea is a true local and she shares her very personal understanding of the history of Dubronik-one of the most interesting and cool cities you will ever see. We walked to another amazing beach, and the accommodations Robi arranged for us in Dubrovnik were perfect.
Frankly, this trip was faultless, because of Robi's attention to every detail. He is very hands on, and will communicate with you daily, in case there is anything you need. If you want to have someone plan and organize the best trip to get to know Croatia, you must book Robi-he is kind and considerate and so generous with his time - he went above and beyond and always says that his happiness comes from making his customers happy - how can you beat this? Thank you a million times Robi!

This was my first time using a travel agency for a trip. I've always been a very independent traveler and felt that using a travel agent would take away some of that spontaneity and freedom. In fact, it only enhanced the trip. Bruno arranged all the hotels and car rental for us, which took a lot of the stress away. And he was always there on WhatsApp to send us suggestions (always with easy-to-use directions), even helping us to figure out how to pay for parking, so that we were able to maximize our time enjoying the holiday and not spending wasted hours trying to find a place.
This was our first trip to southern Dalmatia and we saw a lot. I like to think of it as a great "taste" of what Dalmatia has to offer, and I can't wait to go back for more now that I have an idea of all there is to offer there. From Cavtat to Split and back again, it was all wonderful, the food (the oysters!), the sea, the hikes and bike rides of Mljet island, the fortifications of Ston and Dubrovnik, (and all the stairs). Especially lovely (and something I probably wouldn't have found on my own) was the Tristeno Arboretum and its Roman Aqueduct, reminding us just how long people have sailed these shores.
In addition we both really enjoyed our guide Pero's wonderfully detailed tour of the Diocletian's Palace in Split was both informative and filled with dry Dalmatian humor. In short, this could have been a mess of a holiday with us lost and frustrated, but thanks to Bruno and his team, we were able to pack a huge amount into a week.

We were in No 3, I think, which was large, had comfy beds and had a washing machine, for which we were very grateful after being on a land tour for 11 days and we were then joining an island hopping cruise for a week. Our travelling companions were in the apartment next door, so they were able to use the washing facility too. It is near the Old Town of Dubrovnik, but you do have to be able to manage a lot of steps to get there and back, If you're fit, then I would definitely recommend it.

First, Robi was terrific on working on what we wanted on our trip from length of trip to hotels, to sights, etc. There was a lot of back and forth and I was always presented with multiple options. We had never been to Croatia so we were open to many suggestions, and it was perfect. Second the communication was top notch, any time we were going to a new city, Robi would whatsapp all details, even down to where to turn on a street, how early to be there, restaurants, etc. At no time on the vacation did we feel stressed as he setup everything perfect. Our trip was Split-Hvar-Korcula - Dubrovnik (with side trip to Kotor). The team he worked with was 5 stars with extra shout outs to Antonio in Split and Baldo in Dubrovnik. If you are wondering about using Robi and Kimkim, I highly recommend it for a special memorable trip.

As for sites, everyone is different, but renting a boat in HVAR and going into coves and swimming was terrific and beautiful, and the same happened in Dubrovnik and Robi was the captain and it was terrific also. Dubrovnik lives up to the hype. Kotor was incredible and you should ask for Baldo as a tour guide. In Split took a trip out to the Krka waterfalls and was a great trip. The day trip to Ston on the way to Dubrovnik was a great stop, from walking the walls to the oyster trip, to the salt plant. Be upfront with Robi on what you want and him and his team will find it, so enjoy Croatia

I don't know that I would recommend going there to anyone even though the site itself was beautiful.
We loved our two guides in Hvar, Gregor and Jelena (hiking and biking) - both tours were great. However, the bike guide ending in the basement of Gregor's father and receiving wine, olive oil, bread and cheese was amazing.
We loved our guide in Korcula, Mislav (biking) - he took us to an amazing lunch experience where the food was divine and the hostess loved doing her job, explaining about her garden the grappa processes, the olive oils and the food!
The guide at Mljet was a darling person but not such a knowledgeable guide and then we had a strange experience at the restaurant on the island where they brought us an appetizer that we didn't order and then charged us for it with the explanation of "It is on the menu". After lunch, there was definitely tension in the air - like I said, an odd experience. After going through this, I would recommend KimKim suggests that people bring a picnic (sandwiches) and water (our guide had none for us) and go to the fire stand at the top of the island - that view and hike was quite memorable. The restaurant is a rip-off -it was our most expensive meal in 12 days and we had no wine with lunch.
The guide Nika in Dubrovnik was an absolute joy to be with and she had SO much information to share with us - she was an incredible guide and just very warm and easy to be with.
The cooking class outside of Dubrovnik was amazing - they provided a vegetarian meal for me without me even asking! The things they had us make were lots of fun and easy - that experience was also fantastic.
We loved our guide "Disco" who drove us to Mostar and the falls. He was also so knowledgeable about the area, the war, the history of both Croatia and Bosnia. He was so personable and gave a lot of good options. I could have spent 30 minutes less at the falls to have that extra time in Mostar.

We loved Villa Nora in Hvar - the hostess there, Natalie, was so nice and ready to help us at any moment. The room was great and the breakfast was so cozy in the walled courtyard. Her sister was also a great cook and also was ready to help us. Great location and we loved being in old town.

The hotel in Korcula Fabris Inn was in a good location, adjacent to the old town. The room was nice but nothing special, the breakfast was nice as well and we loved sitting near the waterfront every morning while we had coffee and breakfast.

The Hotel Lero was nice, clean and modern and offered a fantastic breakfast each morning (I don't think I have had better coffee) - we enjoyed staying there. We had an issue with the A/C turning off around 5:30-6am which resulted in us getting up to turn it back on. We asked the front desk about it and it was never resolved (they sent someone up immediately but they said it was fine). I would have preferred staying in the old town just because that is where we spent the majority of our time but I think that is something we realized in hindsight. The hotel was nice but again, nothing special.

Villa Nora Hvar
Hvar

We loved Villa Nora in Hvar - the hostess there, Natalie, was so nice and ready to help us at any moment. The room was great and the breakfast was so cozy in the walled courtyard. Her sister was also a great cook and also was ready to help us. Great location and we loved being in old town. I also liked how the room was separate from the bathroom - that is a nice touch. As were the mints and dried figs that were everywhere - I would 100% go back to this hotel.

Authenticity & Character
I loved that it was in the old town - there is just a small sign with the name so it feels like it blends right in with all the surrounding buildings.
Location
Close to everything and not too many steps between the port and the hotel!
Staff
The staff was great - we loved Natalie and her sister, they would stop whatever they were doing to answer our questions.

the room was very clean, it was also spacious, it even had a couch to sit on which was very nice.
The Fabris - Luxury Inn
Korčula

The Fabris Inn was in a very good location, adjacent to the old town. The room was nice and clean but nothing special (i.e. old with history). The breakfast was also nice, and we loved sitting near the waterfront every morning while we had coffee and breakfast. There was plenty to choose from at the buffet style and they had one or two different pastries each day.

Hotel Lero

This hotel is clean and modern and has an incredible breakfast buffet. The rooms were nice though I didn't love the frosted bathroom door - I was traveling with a friend so that was a tiny bit awkward. Loved the towel rack and the soap and lotion. The front desk was very helpful and always responded to any requests we made. They lent us umbrellas when needed as well as boxed breakfast when we needed it. The coffee is fantastic.

Authenticity & Character
It is just a modern hotel - so nothing really stands out about it.
Location
It is about a 20 minute walk to the old town of Dubrovnik. Taking the bus was easy but I would have preferred something closer.
Staff
The staff was very responsive to our questions and needs.
Cleanliness & Comfort
Very comfortable beds and linens. There was an issue with the A/C cutting off in the early morning so that was annoying but not a deal breaker - otherwise, we could set the temperature and it was nice and cold.

Small Group Island of Hvar Cycling Tour
Croatia

We loved our biking guide Jelana - the ride was beautiful and she kept a nice pace - not too slow nor too fast. She pointed out some really great things along the way (the old roman roads, the path that the parades follow near Easter, little Venice etc.) She would stop when asked to allow for photos. I loved stopping near the end for gelato - that was the best gelato we had on the trip! Ending in the basement with wine, cheese, olive oil, meats etc was an amazing finish to an already amazing bike ride. Would do this trip again and again.

Day Trip to Plitvice National Park from Split (group tour)

Plitvice lakes are amazing the amount of people there is ridiculous. I wouldn't go back here simply because of the number of people. The infrastructure around the park is great, very beautiful but you are sharing it with a constant stream of people before and after you. I don't know how to resolve this but I really felt like the numbers of people took away from the experience of it.

Plitvice lakes is a MUST do when in Croatia. It is so beautiful!! We had mixed feelings with the tour/guide. We had a good experience and nothing against her, we just weren't sure that it was entirely necessary or that she added to the experience. I think it would've been just as pleasant to have been given the route that is normally taken, and to go alone. The lakes themselves were amazing and are very glad that they were incorporated into the trip.

We had an incredible experience in Croatia thanks to the incredible Antonia! Her planning, recommendations, and attention to detail ensured we had an unforgettable vacation that was completely stress free.
Hvar was our favorite location, but we enjoyed everywhere we visited. All of our booked experiences were excellent, but we’ve listed our three favorites below.
In Hvar, our guide Grgo took us on a private tour of the island, where we learned about the island’s history and the locals. We enjoyed his family’s natural wines in their Konoba with cheeses, meats, and olives, and were brought to a restaurant in Yelsa for a delicious seafood dinner. This was one of our very favorite things we did on the trip!
After arriving in Dubrovnik, we were taken by private driver to Ston (about an hour drive). There, we enjoyed the most beautiful scenery as were taken by boat to a floating bar. Unlimited fresh oysters, muscles, wine, and bread were prepared for us on the water. We enjoyed learning about the oyster farm and our guide even sent us home with the shells of the oysters we ate for crafting.
Sea kayaking in a small group around Dubrovnik’s city walls and local islands was so fun and beautiful. Our guide, Roger, was knowledgeable and friendly, and shared information with us about Dubrovnik’s history and natural beauty. We enjoyed snorkeling, swimming in caves, and catching some sun on the pebblely beaches.
Of all the food we ate in Croatia, our favorite meal was at Panorama in Dubrovnik. Antonia helped us secure cable car tickets and a reservation along the fence, looking over the city at sunset. It was incredible. We were impressed by the service, cocktails, appetizers, and (of course) our meals! The sea bass was SO good.
All in all, an amazing trip. Thanks again to Antonia for the guidance and excellent support!

It's been years since we used a travel agent. We are confident & regular international travellers, and well used to booking our own flights, hotels, restaurants and so on. But when we decided to visit Croatia, we realised we needed a bit of extra help. The country was unfamiliar, our plans slightly complicated, and we wanted to pack a lot into our two week trip. And having been denied a decent holiday for a couple of years, we wanted this one to be special.

So we chose Kim Kim. And boy was that a good decision! We were blown away by the personalised planning, the thought, the attention to detail. Right from the first tentative thoughts about where to go to the last airport cab, Kim Kim made sure everything was seamless.

The whole process feels really personal, right from the start. They work hard to tailor the trip to your individual needs, and take a lot of trouble going back and forth to get it right. And the web interface and the app that help you to keep track of your plans, not only before but during your trip, are very slick and user friendly. Little details like being able to download ferry tickets directly onto your phone make things very smooth.

But the thing that really made a difference was having one person looking after us throughout. Antonia, our local specialist, was AMAZING! To be honest, I was a bit sceptical at first about how much personal contact we would really get once the plans were finalised and the trip paid for. But Antonia was there by our side (virtually at least) every day of the trip, messaging us each morning to remind us of our plans, sorting out things like restaurants, trips and even laundry. As my wife said, it was like having a butler!

This probably wasn't the cheapest way to travel, but it was the best. We packed so much in, and had so much fun, with so little hassle. We will definitely be going back to Croatia, which may well be our new favourite destination, and we will definitely use Kim Kim again.

Great tour of the lakes and waterfalls. It's a stunning location, very instagrammable. Our guide was great, and tailored the walk to the weather and our needs.

Our first experience of sea kayaking, and a great place to do it. Sea was utterly calm.

Loved the little islands, including one recently visited by both Beyonce and Bill Gates, tasting the local snacks and wine, and seeing the deer on the Monastery Island.

Everything was well planned and executed. You really appreciate the depth of his knowledge when he suggests the actual time of day to go and do certain activities and makes specific recommendations based on the time of the year and the expected crowds. We went in August and Robi had specific suggestions of places and times that would avoid the crowds and give us a unique tailored experience. His hotel recommendations were top notch and fitted within our budget too.

Robi is fun to be with and is a walking encyclopedia on Croatia and on activities. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND him for your trip. You can't go wrong.

Also, at the conclusion of our road trip the car was picked up by the rental agency right in Dubrovnik without any hassle. Robi even drove the car from Ston to Dubrovnik to give us a break and helped haul the luggage through the streets of Old town to our hotel. The airport transfer was also arranged perfectly by Robi.

I usually plan family trips on my own - researching destinations (Kenya, Tanzania, France, Spain, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Mexico, etc), figuring out where to stay, what to do, and where to eat. This time, I traveled alone to Croatia. I needed to plan the trip quickly, and did not want the burden of having to rent a car. So after reading many wonderful reviews online about Kimkim decided to take a chance and book through them. Nikola was very attentive from the start. Once he figured out what kind of trip I wanted, he planned every last detail - private airport transfers, private tours, and beautiful hotels. He even suggested restaurants along the way. I could tweek anything I wanted. I decided to upgrade two of the four hotels he originally suggested, but when I look back on it, I probably didn't need to do that. All of his suggestions were spectacular. I will absolutely use Kimkim to plan future travel, and have already recommended the company to many of my friends.

We took three boat excursions and despite the weather, enjoyed them all. Our skippers (Tony, Ante and Ivo) were all very capable and interesting. We felt safe and secure and found their advice very good on what and how to enjoy our time on the water and port. As the weather was sub-optimal the day we travelled with Ivo, the life stories he shared from time in the service, to search and rescue and olive farming made up for it. His lunch recommendation on Lupod was also the best meal of the trip at Obala! We enjoyed a seaside table, truly inches off the rocks with fresh delightful fare!

We enjoyed our time hiking around the beautiful waterfalls in Plitvice and Krka. All of our transfers were efficient, safe and comfortable and the recommended hotels were quite good. Our favorite was the harbor view suite in the Palace Elizabeth Hotel. We truly enjoyed our time in Hvar including the trek to the Spanish Fortress Overlooking the City and Sea.

Our tour guides in Trogir, Split and Dubrovnik were all very knowledgeable and passionate - and the time with Mislav wine tasting was enjoyable and relaxing in Korcula - a very enjoyable and laid back island with good food. The walled cities of Trogir, Korcula and Dubrovnik were our favorites - each with a different scale and vibe but common in the quaintness of their back alleys and cobblestone streets. The wall walk in Dubrovnik was worthwhile, providing great views of the city and sea.

All and all, a truly exceptional vacation and one of the top 5 in our travels to over 60 countries! We highly recommend Croatia and KimKim!

Trust the drivers/guides. They will give you an incredible experience no matter what! We loved Split, Hvar and Mostrar the most.

The air was cooler in the hallways than in our room which wasn’t great because we were there in mid august. The consierge is very helpful with reservations and taxis. The breakfast buffet is large. Overall it was nice to have two separate sleeping areas in one room (picture adjoining rooms minus a door.) I just didn’t like the noise or the lack of cool air and it wasn’t very close to old town, maybe 20 minute walk.

Robbie and his team are exceptional. These days, there are not many companies that put their heart and soul in their clients' wellbeing, .... well, Robbie and his team are the exception. They not only appreciate and please, but always think one or two steps ahead. When our group of 19 (ages ranking from 8 to 53!) arrived to Croatia, together with a heart-warming welcome speech, our bikes and equipment were already prepared according to heights, with our nametag on, water bottles nicely cooled and marked with names. Biking routes were perfectly selected - stunning views, no crowd, difficulty not too strenuous but challenging enough... Robbie's vans were always near us, looking after our security and the need to refill our bottles with fresh water. Arriving to any beach, suprise-suprise, snorkelling equipment already prepared for every kid.. During the 1 week, our overnight stays were perfectly organized in nice hotels, and our dinners were carefully selected and prepared in nice, traditional restaurants/ terraces. As for communication, besides absolutely fluent English spoken, Robbie and his team were also carefully watching the balance of "humanly close, but not invading". We will repeat for sure.

Antonia created an itinerary that fulfilled our every need and even planned for experiences we didn't know we needed! Every transfer we had was greeted with a pleasant driver. Everyone was on time and helpful with information. We flew into Dubrovnik from NJ and had a day to relax at the beautiful outdoor pool and lounges at a fantastic hotel picked by Antonia. Hotel More. Of course we did the Game of Thrones tour in old town and Antonia chose a great guide for us that could balance the 3 different age groups and the heat wave. After 2 days and great food and people we were off to Hvar, my favorite stop! Again Antonia chose a lovely hotel, Adriana, that was perfect! In Hvar Antonia set up a tour that brought us over the mountains to the other side of the island with a great tour and dinner included. We saw a few smaller towns and loved every minute. The next day she booked us on a speed boat to visit the blue and green caves and go for swims in a few different alcove beaches. Spending a day on the water with Dominick's tour company (Antonia wins again) felt like I was living the life of the rich and famous! He brought us to an amazing restaurant on a small island (also all part of our package) and we had an amazing meal. Next stop was traveling to a small town and finding my family heritage in Dragova, on Dugi Otok. Antonia found the perfect guide who did lots of research before we went. She was history buff and proved that when she was also our walking tour guide in Zadar. She knew when to give us private time to spread my grandmother's ashes and have our remembrance and she was lots of fun too. Our last stop in Zagreb was met with another great walking tour guide and lots of recommendations for our last 24 hours! It was the vacation of a lifetime and I will be happy to plan with Kim Kim for our next EU trip to Italy!!

From guiding us on early planning to closely managing our trip while in Croatia, his level of local knowledge and concierge service was 5-star. Robi helped my husband and I custom design a 10 day trip throughout the Dalmatian cost including Split, Hvar, Korcula and Dubrovnik. He understood the type of trip we wanted to create which was a mix of cultural experiences, outdoor activities and relaxing down time. He was really able to anticipate our needs based on the information we gave him and execute flawlessly. All of our transportation to and from airports/ports/hotels was seamless which can be a little be complicated and hectic during the busy summer travel season. Some of the highlights of the trip were excursions to Krka national park and a private boat tour of the Elaphiti islands off the coast of Dubrovnik. Robi also lined us up with local guides in Split, Dubrovnik and an excursion to Ston that were exceptional. By having a local, Croatian, like Robi plan and manage our trip, experience was elevated by removing much of the stress associated with travel, especially in a place we weren’t previously familiar with. Another element which deserves pointing out is that Robi was able to roll with a few last minute changes to our set schedule. If we required a little bit of a late start for a tour or wanted to move up the departure for the inter-island ferry, Robi was on top of it and made it happen. He was also avail to us 24/7 by WhatsApp for ongoing questions we had throughout the trip. Robi’s a very knowledgeable professional who helped us fall in love with such a beautiful country. We will definitely be back and would use him again in a heartbeat.

From the way they set up the trip, by asking for a copy of our passports so that when we could check in hotels fairly quickly, to the way that they paid attention to every single detail including bike sizes, helmet sizes, etc, this company and their CEO Robi were totally focused on making our trip a magic experience. They took us to places that we would not have discovered on our own, and that were not flooded by tourists. The plan was molded to our preferences, the execution was very effective and adapted flexibly to our evolving needs. Can’t recommend them enough.

She was always available for us to take care of the smallest issues. We forgot a few items and she went out of her way to call stores to find if they were in stock. My son got sick for a day and she arranged for a doctor to see us. We never felt unsupported with her just a phone call away.

Nice hotel with great views over the ocean. Rooms can be a bit small so do look at that before booking. It is also a bit far from the old town so if that is what you are looking for then go somewhere else. However, if you are looking for an ocean experience, this is your place.

We are a family of three (mom, dad and 14-year old teen) who wanted a multi-sport adventure that would be fun for all and avoid the touristy areas. Robi exceeded all expectations! It was SO much fun and he took care of EVERY detail and all the logistics--from airport transportation, to hotels, to activities and everything in between. We swam in beautiful sea caves, toured the coast by boat, e-biked the wine country, kayaked among the oyster farms, had the most delicious grilled calamari, went to a secret beach (shhh!) and raced around on jet skis in Zuljana! I asked Robi if there were places I could go for a run in Ston (where we stayed) and he was kind enough to map out a new run for each day were there. Robi is also extremely knowledgeable about all-things-Croatia, so we learned so much about Croatian history, politics and people. Suffice it to say, there is no way I could have planned this much fun on my own. I can't imagine going back to Croatia unless Robi came with us! :)
