France Trip Review:
In addition to comments from Mark & Rhonda, I've added a couple of my comments below:
What we liked the most:
- Bordeaux and wine tours: our guide Bogdan Ghita was very knowledgeable and fun. He did a great job with the itinerary and we just really enjoyed his company.
- Bordeaux itinerary with Bogdan was excellent and well thought out! We enjoyed the variety of Chateau's, from small to big, and the great restaurants for lunch each day.
- Our guide for the... read more
France - Bayeaux, Amboise, Paris
May 24 - May 31, 2023
We had a wonderful trip to France! Mathilde worked diligently to fit everything we wanted into our ambitious schedule. There was not one glitch, it was effortless and totally enjoyable which is what we wanted. Mathilde handled all the minute details and all we had to do was follow her directions. Every guide, tour, hotel, driver was vetted by Mathilde and they all get 5 stars. We traveled in France to Bayeaux, Amboise and Paris and had a trip of a lifetime! read more
Trip to France was wonderful.
May 26 - Jun 2, 2023
Trip was wonderful!! It was nice to have transfers to and from hotels. To and from places on our own for travelers who aren’t used to the metro can be a little intimidating, but it worked out great. Lori, Valley Castle tour I wish we would’ve had more time at each castle. We did pay for audio tour guide, but did not receive. Turned out, we didn’t have enough time to use them if we would’ve had them. One of our favorite tours that we did was our cooking class with Rosa. It was absolutely... read more
Bonjour Amanda !
I've just read the feedback you've left on Kim Kim and I wanted to thank you :)
I am glad to see that you enjoy your trip, especially your cooking class with Rosa ! Thank you for her too.
I will contact the audio guide provider and keep you informed...
Your comments are very helpful for us as they help to improve the quality of our services.
I wish you a wonderful summer and a lot of good memories!
Kind regards ^^
Great taste of France
May 14 - May 30, 2023
We only had 16 days to spend in France and the package that Amandine put together was totally amazing. We got a great taste of France - not just Paris.
The bicycle tour of Dijon with Leah was enjoyable as was our tour of the "Gand Cru" road with Joachim.
Amandine also organised a fantastic dinner cruise for us back in a stopover in Paris.
Bayeaux was amazing, although Mont St. Michel was disappointing because of the crowds, our Guide Julie did an incredible job. A tour of Normandie... read more
Thank you Robin & Manfred for taking the time to share your experience!
It was a great sporting and cultural trip ^^
Thank you for all your comments and kindness :)
I wish you all the best for your next European adventure !
Plan next trip with KimKim
Apr 25 - May 6, 2023
The trip exceeded our expectations. Our planner Lise was absolutely terrific. All of our excursion guides were informative, helpful and very nice. We would highly recommend KimKim again to friends and hopefully for another European vacation in the future. read more
Thanks to KimKim and Amandine our trip to France was beyond our expectations!
May 9 - May 22, 2023
I'm so glad that we found KimKim to help us with our trip to France. We wanted a customized experience and KimKim and our travel agent Amandine really stepped up to provide a once in a lifetime trip. After I explained to Amandine what we were looking for and gave her our budget she provided suggestions for tours and accommodations. We went back and forth for a while until we nailed down all the specifics. She organized amazing tours that we would have probably missed if we had tried to plan... read more
Bonjour Susan, bonjour Robert,
Thank you so much for your review you took the time to share with us.
It's great to read all these details about our selected guides and hotels. Thank you for them too :)
I wish you wonderful memories from this trip and many future travel projects!
May 2 - May 21, 2023
Mathilde was very helpful with planning for the France portion of our 3 week France and Italy adventure. She made excellent choices with the hotels and tours she booked for us. And it was a real boon to have hotel and airport transfer during key points on our journey. It was a luxury to have this kind of assistance with travel planning as we typically do it all ourselves. Glad we made the investment for this first big post-retirement adventure. read more
Thank you so much for your amazing review, I'm happy to see that you enjoyed your trip to France and Italy! I hope you got back home with a lot of amazing memories :)
All the best in your future travels,

Apr 26 - May 6, 2023
We loved working with Mathilde! I would highly recommend her to all of my friends. She was so personable and put together the perfect itinerary for us. I loved ending our trip in Nice and really enjoyed the cooking class. I want to go back and visit more of the French Riviera and part of Italy next time. I loved the experience traveling first class on the high speed train! Better than flying! Thank you Mathilde for planning such a great experience! read more
Hi Jane and Cindy!
Thank you for this amazing review, I'm so happy you enjoyed your trip to France. Unfortunately, the French Riviera is often crowded and the traffic is dense, I hope you still enjoyed your day and have a lot of memories! :)
All the best,
Great trip. Thanks to Amandine for adjusting...

Great trip. Thanks to Amandine for adjusting our plans at the last minute. Debt of gratitude for your help. Thanks. read more
Bonjour Lori, bonjour Kurtis!
I'm glad to read this feedback, I thank you for taking the time to write it :)
I hope you will have nice memories of France! And I wish you the best for the future!
A dream-come-true heritage trip to France with my dad
Apr 22 - Apr 30, 2023
On Christmas Day 2019, I told my then-82-year-old father that I was going to take him to France in 2020 to visit the places our ancestors lived in the 17th century before immigrating to La Nouvelle France (present-day Quebec and Nova Scotia). Dad is the family historian and an accomplished genealogist, so this was my effort to make a dream come true for him, though it turned out to be a tremendous gift for myself. The pandemic delayed our plans, but our trip to France in April 2023 ended up... read more
Thank you so much for your kind words and for taking the time to share your feedback with us and with Kim Kim! It was a true pleasure to design your France trip on the Road to your ancestors! I am touched by your compliments and am so happy that our guides, hoteliers and myself were able to make your trip a memorable experience! Your comments are very important to us as they help to control, maintain, and improve the quality of our services and those of our local partners.
Thanks again for your trust in Kim Kim and in our team !
Western France circuit
Apr 8 - Apr 30, 2023
We had an excellent trip, exploring some of the most beautiful parts of France. Highlights included Park Asterix, walking on the Emerald coast of Brittany, the incredible troglodyte villages of the Dordogne, cycling in the Loire and our incredible private tour of the Louvre. Highly recommend. read more
I've just read the feedback you've left on Kim Kim and I wanted to thank you for the time you've spent doing such a detailed and commented review. This is very helpful for us and I'll share it with all our suppliers involved on your trip (hotels, drivers, guides...). That definitely helps us to maintain and control the quality of our services. I'm truly happy that you've had a great family experience on such a long and immersive adventure.
Have a nice day !
Springtime in the Loire Valley, France--not to be missed!
Apr 24 - Apr 28, 2023
The SPECTACULAR LOIRE VALLEY!! 5 days and 4 nights in this wonderful section of France. Walking through castles where recorded history occurred sometimes 800 years ago! The people, the gardens, the chateaux, the history and art, the food, the wine, and the cheese made our vacation the perfect escape from the normal stressors of life.
I am an experienced traveler, but this was my first time using a travel agent/tour company. I am so happy that my first experience with a travel agent... read more
Loire River Valley - Très magnifique!
Apr 24 - Apr 28, 2023
My friend and I used Lise at Kim Kim to plan a 5 day trip through the Loire River Valley. We gave Lise the overview of what we wanted to see during our trip. From there, she filled in the details that included everything from our train ride from Paris to LRV and back, hotel, guided chateau tours, and drivers. She also did a great job of touching base periodically prior to our arrival and during the trip.
We stayed in Amboise at a lovely boutique hotel that was in a great location. The... read more

Apr 8 - Apr 15, 2023
Using KimKim was a leap of faith. I shared with Valentine a bit about my own experience in France/with French, as well as that of my 15 year old son, and our particular interests and hopes for this short spring break trip together. I mentioned my preference for clean local food and my environmental ethic. Everything was SPOT on, from the “Maison Mere” she sweetly selected for this Mother-son trip that began in Paris, with its peek-a-boo view of the Eiffel Tower, beyond organic and unique... read more
8 days in Paris ...
Apr 10 - Apr 18, 2023
I have used KimKim several times and it keeps getting better and better. Clément planned us unique activities that accommodated my friend on her first trip to Paris while also keeping me engaged ,although I had seen many of the places before. The day trip to Reims for the Champagne tour is a must do. We learned so much and had a great time seeing the area with our fantastic guide Xavier. Our food tour in Montmartre with Carol was perfect for anyone looking to learn the culture and history of... read more
It's absolutely delightful to hear that you had such a fantastic time with us and Kimkim!
As your personal travel planner, it brings me so much joy to hear that I was able to match your desires and create a wonderful experience for you and your friend in Paris, even though you already knew the city so well.
Your feedback regarding the activities and experiences you had with Xavier, Carole, and Martin is greatly appreciated, as it helps us improve and better cater to our travelers' needs.... read more
Perfect customized family trip
Apr 6 - Apr 16, 2023
Mathilde did a phenomenal job of customizing our trip exactly how we envisioned it, especially by getting us hard to get tickets, including the Vermeer exhibit which was nearly a miracle. The pacing of the trip and quality of the stops was perfect no complaints read more
Thank you for your kind words, I'm happy you and your family enjoyed your trip! I hope that you came back home with a lot of memories of French food, Belgian chocolate and Amsterdam museums!
I wish you all the best in your future travels!
We absolutely loved France!! Amandine was the best travel planner!!
Apr 5 - Apr 15, 2023
We wanted to thank KimKim and Amandine for planning such an amazing 11-day itinerary for our first ever family trip to France. We were able to experience the best of both North and South France, from the cooking classes to the biking tours, Bakery tours to dinner cruise, the private guided tours at Versailles and Louvre ( our tour guide- Alexandra, she was the best!!!) and night tour bus. It was all so much fun.
We also wanted to extend our gratitude for the fantastic service provided... read more
Thank you so much for your fabulous review :)
It was a real pleasure to make you discover our beautiful country!
By the way, I love your pictures ^^
Thanks again for the feedback which always helps us to improve our services.
I hope your memories of France are wonderful :)
I wish you all the best,
Anniversary trip to France
Apr 3 - Apr 13, 2023
My husband and I were looking to travel to France for our delayed honeymoon/anniversary trip, and found KimKim while looking online for travel/tour companies. The travel itinerary created by our tour specialist, Nathalie, was fantastic, and we enjoyed all of the different excursions booked (our favorite was the wine tasting tour in Aix-en-Provence!, though they were all amazing, including the excursion to seeing the Pont du Gard, and our own personal guide for our trip to Versailles, La... read more
Thank you so much for sharing your feedback on the hotels and places you've experienced during your trip to beautiful France! Your comments are very important to us as they help to control, maintain, and improve the quality of our services and those of our local partners.
It was pleasure to organize your outings and to secure centrally located and fabulous accommodations. You sure had a lot of adventures (sorry for the private drivers :)) I hope you went back home with lots of great memories!
Thanks again for your trust in Kim Kim and in our team !
Great trip overall with small kids, but heads up!
Mar 26 - Apr 3, 2023
After putting over 100 hours of research into our family trip to Paris, I'm very happy with the tours and guide choices. Amandine had good ideas and stitched everything together very well.
We have a 5 year old and a 2 year old, I'm pregnant and we also traveled with our nanny. There were a lot of moving parts and we hadn't done a trip like this before. We obviously had things that worked well and things we wouldn't do again at our current stage. I can't speak highly enough of the Blue Fox... read more
Truly customized amazing experience
Jul 31 - Aug 12, 2023
The KimKim interface and Clément's flexibility and attentiveness were amazing.
First, before the trip we truly partnered with Clément to design a vacation everyone was very happy with. I did take a few iterations but Clément was understanding and had many wonderful ideas. Before we left everything needed was booked and provided. This significantly decreased the stress of vacation planning especially when you are dealing with a family vacation with children.
I don't feel like we are... read more
Wow, thank you for taking the time to leave such a wonderful comment and feedback, Jeremy! It was an absolute pleasure assisting you with your trip to our beautiful "douce france". Your kind words mean a lot to us, and I'm thrilled to hear that you had a great time exploring our country.
All my apologies again on the mishap with your metro pass, but I'm glad that we were able to resolve the issue for you even if it wasn't in time. Your feedback on the accommodations and activities is... read more
