Absolutely amazing team · Iceland - Sep 13 - Sep 27, 2021
I had a wonderful 2 weeks trip with my son in Iceland. Many thanks to Jenny, Preeti and the team. Especially to Jenny, thank you so much for being there and helped me through everything.
Me and Sean were having some problems pre-depature after everything been booked up, I was panicking but of course and thankfully Jenny 'saved my life' Jenny and the team were absolutely amazingly, they worked so hard to rearrange the whole trip again for me in such a short time.

Great Trip! · Iceland - Sep 30 - Oct 8, 2021
This was our second trip planned by KimKim and our second great success with them. The first one was two years ago in Norway and this time in Iceland. Preeti did a wonderful job of connecting with us to find out what our specifics were in terms of arrivals and departures and what we wanted to see and how we wanted to experience Iceland. She put together a great itinerary that met all of our needs, reserved very comfortable hotels with a large breakfast each morning. She and her associate were... read more
Michele is the BEST!! · Iceland - Sep 19 - Sep 27, 2021
Michele planned such a perfect trip around Iceland! He really helped us find the "off the beaten path" gems. He selected great activities and hotels and really listened to what we were looking for! We even have the good fortune of an incredible northern lights display. We especially enjoyed the time we spent in eastern and northern parts of Iceland; away from some of the "crowds" of the golden circle and Reykjavik. Iceland was our favorite trip we have taken! We highly recommend Michele!

Preeti was my Iceland specialist who planned and organized our trip for two over many months. Preeti was exceptional. Unfortunately, she can’t control the weather. If anyone could though, it would be Preeti. We were away for 19 days returning Oct 6/21 and toured the country counter-clockwise with an emphasis on great hiking opportunities. It was a very busy itinerary. All of our many bookings- car, hotels, ferry, glacier hike, etc., went through without any glitches and all met with the... read more
Excellent itinerary for Iceland! · Iceland - Sep 25 - Oct 2, 2021
Excellent itinerary for Iceland! Emanuela was excellent before and during our trip. All recommendations were spot-on and met all of our needs. Even when we had questions during our stay in Iceland, we were able to get quick responses back from our guide. We especially enjoyed the Glacier Lagoon boat trip, the volcano hike, and hunting for northern lights (which we saw twice!). I would absolutely recommend doing the self-driving tour of Iceland as I believe this is the most flexible way to see the country.
Bucket list trip to Iceland · Iceland - Sep 20 - Sep 27, 2021
Our trip to Iceland was amazing! Definitely in the top 3 trips we’ve taken. Working with emanuela was wonderful - she took all of our inputs and modified the itinerary to meet our needs perfectly. All 3 of the tours we did were incredible - glacier lagoon in a zodiac, Hiking an ice cave on Katla, and northern lights. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable. The hotels were also tremendous - they were definitely a great way to wrap up every day. We will definitely fo back!
Fantastic way to self-drive and see Iceland! · Iceland - Sep 25 - Oct 3, 2021
My husband and I felt very taken care of in planning ring road trip. Essentially Michele did everything for us, booked the car, hotels, created maps and driving routes, and stops for us to see. We are both busy professionals and the fact that we didn't really have to think about this trip until we landed in Iceland was absolutely perfect and we enjoyed exploring the itinerary on a day to day basis. The hotels were also really nice and comfortable. Thank you Michele!
A great 12-day trip to Iceland · Iceland - Sep 11 - Sep 22, 2021
Emanuela did a great job planning our 12-day trip. Everything went smoothly and she checked in on us several times during the trip to make sure all was going well. I would recommend her for trip planning in Iceland.
Ease of Mind · Iceland - Sep 18 - Sep 26, 2021
Booking the trip through KimKim made for much more peace of mind leading up to and during our travels. We were able to speak with our specialist Terry prior to booking and she made a specialized itinerary based on our interests. I didn’t have to worry about what I didn’t know when going to a foreign county because she and she folks on the ground in Iceland took care of all the bookings and scheduling and even gave us driving directions. When one of our tours was cancelled due to weather we... read more
We loved our visit to Iceland!!! · Iceland - Sep 20 - Sep 26, 2021
We had a fabulous time in Iceland from September 18-26th. I worked with Emanuela to plan all what we hoped to see in Iceland and we were not disappointed! 2 night in Reykjavik, 2 nights in Vik and 2 night in Grindavik on our self driving tour. We loved our hotels, dinner suggestions and tours. Emanuela was in constant contact with us throughout our time in Iceland - even alerting us to the bad weather alerts and offering us alternative plans. We hope to return to see even more of beautiful Iceland and I will definitely be calling Emanuela to book our visit!!

All 4 of us had a great time during our trip to Iceland. Preeti did a great job allocating our time as we traveled around Iceland. She tried very hard to help us see some interesting events, like fall sheep and horse round ups which would be very difficult for a visitor to find. All of the hotels were attractive, clean and comfortable with great breakfasts.
The downside of the hotels is that they were almost uniformly located significantly out of town, making it more difficult to eat... read more
Our trip to Iceland was truly memorable-highly recommend Kimkim and Halldor · Iceland - Aug 19 - Sep 5, 2021
Our trip to Iceland was truly memorable! Halldor from Kimkim organized a trip tailored for our requests which included lots of hiking and experiencing the more remote, less crowded areas of Iceland. The trip he arranged was a perfect fit for us. We really appreciated his recommendation to head to the Westfjords and include a 3 day "glamping" trip in the Hornstrandir National Park-spectacular scenery and families of arctic foxes who are not shy and came right up to our feet to play. We also... read more

Iceland in All It's Beauty!! · Iceland - Sep 1 - Sep 7, 2021
Just returned from the most spectacular trip to Iceland, using KimKim and its self-guided itinerary. We worked on the trip via email with KimKim's local travel specialist Preeti, based in Islafjordur. She knew the country well and helped our group of six women plan a 7-day off-the-beaten-path self-drive adventure to Iceland's gorgeous Arctic Coast. KimKim planned for us whale watching, horseback riding, geothermal spa visits, guided hikes to volcanoes, stays at great hotels and delicious... read more
Jon & Jane love Iceland & Emanuela · Iceland - Sep 3 - Sep 8, 2021
Hi, I’m Jon. I live in Chicago and recently traveled to Iceland with my partner Jane. It’s hard for me to express the grandeur you’ll see in the Icelandic landscape, but I can tell you that Emanuela and kimkim helped us make some incredible memories without having to negotiate many of the details that pull me out of the magical moments that make traveling memorable and fulfilling. I had previously used kimkim for adventure travel in the Altai Mountain Region of Western Mongolia, so I knew... read more
Great Experience for Road Trip in Iceland · Iceland - Aug 31 - Sep 5, 2021
The service that KimKim and Emanuela (our trip planner) provided was great! We decided to do a road trip in Iceland and Emanuela worked out all the details. She rented the car, reserved hotels and restaurants, was available whenever we needed her. Our budget was also respected as well.
The trip itself was wonderful and I would recommend that other people do the same trip if they can.
Beautiful Iceland! · Iceland - Aug 26 - Sep 7, 2021
This trip was super well organized. Every hotel booking and activity booking was perfect. We covered a lot of ground each day but it wasn't too much and we were able to see some amazing sights. What a beautiful country. Will definitely return!

Emanuela did an amazing time organizing my brother and I's trip around the ring road. She not only organized our accommodations, but had amazing restaurant recommendations and new all the best sites to stop at along the way. It made everything so much easier, so we could relax and focus on enjoying Iceland. We absolutely could not recommend her services enough!
wonderful Iceland trip · Iceland - Aug 23 - Aug 29, 2021
Thanks to Terry and the entire KimKim team, our family had a fabulous time in Iceland. We knew we trusted Terry from the first time we spoke to her on the phone. She listened to us and understood what we were looking for in our vacation. Her attention to details allowed for a smooth, trouble free week in Iceland. The responsiveness of Terry and KimKim representatives exceeded our expectation. Needless to say, we will use KimKim again for our future vacations. We will recommend Terry to all of friends.

Great itinerary. Kept us busy from early morning till sunset (9pm in Iceland when we were there)
Links to driving directions very helpful. Responses to issues when we were there were very helpful.
Lodging recommendations were quite good. But mostly the recommended places to visit were excellent
Emanuela and Kim Kim did A GREAT JOB for our Family Trip to Iceland! · Iceland - Aug 12 - Aug 21, 2021
We can highly recommend Emanuela without reservation.
She did a fantastic job putting together our Family Trip coordinating travelers from two continents and multiple time zones. Our hotel accommodations were thoughtfully chosen and in the city of Reykjavik was particularly exceptional (Hotel Odinsve). It afforded us a "home base" with easy walking distance to the harbor, restaurants, museums and shops.

Iceland trek - Hornstrandir · Iceland - Aug 13 - Aug 23, 2021
Jenny organised a great trip to Iceland for myself and a friend. We gave her an idea of the type of adventurous trip we were looking for and she organised a great remote trek to Hornstrandir. She gave us a really detailed itinerary with great logistics for every part of the trip. I would highly recommend Hornstradir for anyone looking for spectacular scenery and remote trekking. The trek is fully guided and groups are small.
Great trip to Iceland during pandemic! · Iceland - Aug 11 - Aug 25, 2021
I asked our specialist Preeti to book my husband and I a Ring Road trip, staying at the best accommodations available with activities we could enjoy with my limited physical capabilities.
And she did. We enjoyed suites, junior suites, all in the best available hotels.
We choose a cross-over SUV KIA Sportage which was perfect for tight parking in Reykjavik in garage across from Hilton Canopy.
The detailed itinerary that KimKim provided was excellent. It included google map directions... read more
One of our best vacations ever · Iceland - Aug 3 - Aug 18, 2021
Emanuela arranged for us one of the best vacations we have ever taken. Every day was an adventure to new places and experiences with a bit of respite thrown in every couple of days to let us recharge. The hotels were excellent, and her restaurant recommendations were always great, from the best fish and chips in Iceland to fine cuisine next to the harbor in Reykavik (Kopar) and great restaurants in Stykkisholmar (Narfeyrarstofa), Akureyri (Strikid) and Lake Myvatn (Vogafjos Farm).

Emanuela planned a memorable, spectacular trip to Iceland for me. Everything went off without a hitch, other than the helicopter ride over the volcano (which I booked on my own) due to poor visibility. A one-week trip of a lifetime! Best of the trip? The ice cave. Don’t miss it!

The perfect trip to reenter the world after Lockdown.
We worked with Kimkim and Emanuela to plan the perfect anniversary trip for my husband and I to drive from the east to west coast of Iceland.
Emanuela was perfect at every stage of planning, hearing what we were looking for, and delivering exactly what we wanted. There was not one part of our trip that wasn't perfectly orchestrated.
In our itinerary, not only included all the "must see" popular sights, but she also included many off the... read more
9 day trip to Iceland · Iceland - Jul 24 - Aug 1, 2021
We worked with kimkim to plan a 9 day trip to Iceland for a family of 4 that involved lots of hiking on top of lots of sight seeing. The team at kimkim was amazing - incredibly responsive to our questions and requests, worked to build a trip that was right for us, and made sure that everything we did and saw was genuine Iceland (ie, not just there for tourists). We could not have been happier with the team. They made sure that our day was not over scheduled or involved too much driving, gave... read more
Great Trip to Iceland · Iceland - Jul 28 - Aug 2, 2021
Emanuela did a good job at planning our trip to Iceland. We had the plane tickets, the car, but nothing else. It was a last minute trip. She put together a trip that worked within our timeframe, budget, and interests.
Since we had a car, she provided links to Google Maps that we were able to follow daily which included all of our stops. She also provided recommendations for different restaurants along our route. She handled the booking of all of the activities and hotels.

Amazing 10 days in Iceland · Iceland - Jul 2 - Jul 11, 2021
I was looking for my first post Covid trip and Iceland Ring road travel was on my mind. During that research I came across KimKim and connected with a wonderful person by name of Emanuela. With three of us planning to travel together we wanted to drive through stunning Icelandic nature, photograph puffins, arctic terns and whales, stay in apartments and have good driving directions to all the places we wanted to visit. Told her the $ amount we want to spend. As the itinerary was built I was... read more

One of the best family vacations we've ever had - and we travel quite extensively. Since the planning stages, Emanuela has been an invaluable asset and was in constant communication. At the same time she provided flexibility to cater the trip to each of our family member's tastes. She gave outstanding suggestions that otherwise we wouldn't have thought of ourselves and all this as the world is getting out of the pandemic. We highly recommend Iceland for any family looking to have the... read more

We had a wonderful experience and will always use Kim Kim in the future. We just returned from our trip and I’ve already recommended them to a friend who is traveling in September.
We loved Iceland · Iceland - May 17 - May 28, 2021
Our trip to Iceland with the expertise of Kimkim's personnel (Preeti and Michele ) was phenomenal. They worked with us in design, and were able to accommodate changes in plans per our request, i.e. volcano, extra days, etc. Very few 'surprises' during the trip. Vouchers worked well, car rental, nice hotels, etc. It was a trip we will never forget. All the more following a pandemic. As soon as the border opened, Michele let us know so we could resume trip planning. Thank you Preeti and... read more

Anuj was a great resource in helping to customize our Iceland vacation to match our expectations throughout the planning process. After our trip began, having Anuj supporting our trip was invaluable. Our trip was to the northern part of Iceland in mid-March which meant we had to adapt to weather, road closures, etc. and Anuj was there with us each step of the way helping us to cancel and rebook lodging, tours, etc. as we adapted our itinerary in real time to accommodate the weather.

An remarkable experience of Adventure and Hospitality · Iceland - Feb 4 - Feb 12, 2020
It is one thing to book and adventure into the unknown to try to figure it out for yourself. It was my intention to do so, but the reality is that it helps to have somebody at least give a map or a general guide of what to look out for.

Her itinerary was very detailed with interesting stops, restaurant recommendations and all hotel accommodations, noting what each hotel included.

Preeti did a fabulous job!!!! Everything was terrific! Very well organized and detailed.....
The only activity that we didn’t enjoy as much as everything else was the ice cave tour. The “ice cave” itself was interesting but we didn’t know that it involved a good 45 minute + drive to and from the meeting point to get to the cave (it was not a very enjoyable ride at all).
All of the hotels/accommodations were great.
We would definitely recommend Preeti!
Amazing Trip Planning · Iceland - Oct 3 - Oct 10, 2019
Preeti and the team were fantastic and answered all of our questions and created a unique and memorable trip for us. I want to go to Iceland again and I know who I am going to ask for help in the future!

Trip to Iceland · Iceland - Sep 1 - Sep 11, 2019
Iceland was an amazing experience for my husband and I. We will never forget about it! Everywhere we go had a breathtaking vista: the nature on the island is perfect and silent. We ran into a few travelers that were there during the same week, visiting the same places. I guess that's a common thing in Iceland, because all you wanna do, as a foreign, is to enjoy the beauty. Pauline helped us every time we needed her and her information was always accurate.
We enjoyed all of our experiences · Iceland - Oct 1 - Oct 9, 2019
We had a great time and learned a lot in this trip. The drive guide was wonderful in highlighting the major points. Having gotten stuck on some rainy day’s with gale force winds (who knew waterfalls could fall up?) we found drier locations to visit. The Bjarnarhöfn shark museum was inexpensive, interesting and a whole lot of fun. The lava museum on the way to Vik was a little more modern museum but still helped us to spend part of a very rainy day. We enjoyed all our hotels except... read more

We enjoyed the route through the Snaefellsnes Penninsula and remote areas Westfjords, We were able to snag a reservation at Tjorhusid in Isafjordur which was a real treat. Driving through the snow in the mountains on a gravel road was a real adventure. We liked the Malarhorn guesthouse and suggest taking route 68 from beyond Holmavik on the way back to Reykjavík for wild beauty and staggering views. It was the only time we ventured off the route planned by Pauline and it was well worth it. Pauline was able to develop an amazing 7 day trip for us with very little lead time.
Trip to Iceland · Iceland - Sep 1 - Sep 15, 2019
Our trip was great. Itineraries were created thoughtfully to match our interests and were packed. The first day was very tough because we had been awake all night, maybe a more low key day would have been nice. We loved all the local recommendations and the restaurant recommendations were amazing! All the recommendations exceeded everything that we found on our own.
It was a trip of our lifetime and we were so happy to have found Preeti and her team to help us enjoy their country. I can't wait to use kimkim for our next adventure.

Not much time for check in But rest of trip was amazing. Thank you
Trip to Iceland · Iceland - Sep 2 - Sep 8, 2019
My week in the Westfjords was beautiful. I felt comfortable navigating all the roads knowing I had the KimKim team within reach in case I needed help. Being someone who does not drive much in New York, driving through the steep gravel mountains of Iceland became more daunting as the week approached. As usual it was the most breathtaking scenery. I also met with Preeti who compiled my itinerary and answered all my neurotic New Yorker questions. 10/10 would use KimKim again for future travels.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 14 day self driving tour of Iceland. The itinerary prepared by Preeti enabled us to see much of Iceland and much more than if we just followed highway 1.

I would recommend Kim Kim to anyone wanting to tour Iceland.

The clockwise direction around Iceland and detour onto Snaefellsness peninsula were perfect. We saw far more cars heading in the opposite direction which made for a much smoother driving. Given the extra time it was a real treat to have some of the island’s most beautiful attractions to share with a relatively small crowd of visitors . It was shocking to encounter large caravans of cars and campers by the time we reached glacier lagoon. The golden circle was almost anti-climactic.... read more
Viknaslodir East Fjords Trek: 3-Day Hike from Borgarfjörður to Seyðisfjörður · Iceland - Aug 20 - Sep 1, 2019
Judith was great we have to change or alter our plans many times and she was super helpful and cool. All communications were very professional and prompt everyone was on time;
Iceland2019 · Iceland - Aug 6 - Aug 12, 2019
Favorite memories of our early August 2019 trip to Iceland include the low sunlight illuminating the horses in a field near Hofn and lighting the cliffs behind Hotel Kria as we got into our rooms that night.
August 10 was a 5 star day: beautiful shirt sleeve weather, ice cave tour -- just out of Vik-- with Katlatrack, followed by puffin shots, followed by rainbow shots at Skogafoss, followed by Frost and Fire restaurant. Try their chocolate cake and Pine-smoked Arctic Char!
Our ice cave... read more
5 Days in Iceland - 7 Unique Self-Drive Itineraries · Iceland - Aug 3 - Aug 9, 2019
As a family who has self toured to 30+ countries, we were reluctant to use a travel service for our 6 day trip to Iceland. However, with limited time to see the country, I sought help from KimKim for guidance. They connected me to a local specialist, Preeti, who organized an amazing 6 day trip to remember. Leading up to the trip, we communicated via email on several occasions to work out the schedule and the package she delivered was well before the trip, giving our family plenty of time to... read more
5 Days in Iceland - 7 Unique Self-Drive Itineraries · Iceland - Aug 10 - Aug 15, 2019
Thank you Preeti and also Pauline for your assistance in setting this up
Overall the drive/trip went very well
A couple of caveats for your awareness
1) The Google maps driving instructions were not always the most accurate; sometimes off by multiple kilometers (this is not your fault; but something to be aware of... not sure if there is a better way to map these trips) which did create some confusion
2) I would not stay in the Hotel West again; very very small room, no TV, no coffee, cold only breakfast, etc... I would barely consider this a two star hotel
Iceland Highlight tour · Iceland - Aug 11 - Aug 18, 2019
Our guide Kristjan was knowledgeable, efficient, and tremendously flexible. All necessary attributes in dealing with our family!
Trip to Iceland · Iceland - Aug 3 - Aug 8, 2019
I wanted to thank Preeti for being such a patient and helpful travel specialist. She always answered my questions in a timely matter and was very flexible. She really tried her best to accommodate us and I appreciate that. It was a pleasure working with her, she was fantastic.
We had and AWESOME trip. Everything was planned so well and we were able to see and do all the things we wanted to do. All the guides were super friendly and helpful. I would recommend this trip to anyone thinking of going to Iceland. They will help you plan a fantastic trip.
Trip to Iceland · Iceland - Jul 22 - Aug 2, 2019
What an experience! Our family thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Iceland. No one, from the youngest to the oldest (ages 4 to 77), has had any negative comment.
We were there almost twelve days and really needed more time. Well, I suppose that will have to happen in a subsequent trip. We were pretty much seeing the southwest quadrant of the island, doing all the activities requested and then some. Halldor was an excellent tourist agent. It must have been quite a feat to pull together such... read more
Iceland West Coast & Golden Circle - 5 Days · Iceland - Aug 6 - Aug 13, 2019
I appreciated the detailed itinerary and arrangements that Emanuela prepared for our Iceland trip. She had lots of activities and suggestions for how to make the most of our time there, visiting Reykjavik, the Snaefellsnes, Thingvellir, Golden Circle, and southern coast. As we travelled at a self-pace, we were not able to do all the suggestions, but I think that we got the highlights. The recommendation for the Iceland Lava Show in Vik was great, the show is informative, entertaining and... read more
Trip to Iceland · Iceland - Jul 27 - Aug 6, 2019
We did a 11 day driving tour around Iceland. I wish I could pick a few places that were most memorable but the whole trip was amazing. The accommodations were exceptional and the directions were accurate. We had no problems while in Iceland and following the itenary that Preeti put together. Thanks to the WIFI in the car, we were even able to add in a few detours on the fly and still get back to the routes that were part of the iterary. The tours that were booked for us and the guides were... read more
2-Week Ring Road Self-Drive Itinerary: Highlights of Iceland and the Remote Westfjords · Iceland - Jun 20 - Jul 4, 2019
Solid two weeks plan, good accommodations by and large, good guidance on the sites to visit and places to see. She put together a good plan under very short notice with good local guides.
Could benefit from more insights upfront on people interest and some quicker responsiveness during planning.
Trip to Iceland · Iceland - Jun 22 - Jul 6, 2019
We enjoy our trip in Iceland very much. Sotiria has been really helpful and answered all of our questions. Her planning has helped smooth our trip and we had more opportunity to enjoy the moment with less worry.
2-Week Ring Road Self-Drive Itinerary: Highlights of Iceland and the Remote Westfjords · Iceland - Jul 24 - Aug 5, 2019
After an initial few hiccups with getting going, the experience with kimkim has been very pleasing. The quality of the accommodation choices were in line with expectations, which was not a bad thing as we tend to have high expectations! However the star of the show was your instructions guide as that made our road trip through Iceland a piece of cake! Preeti and importantly Halldor were extremely helpful in getting our bookings together especially when we wanted changes on the fly while in Iceland and that was greatly appreciated. Overall it was a positive experience!
Iceland with Teens · Iceland - Aug 4 - Aug 9, 2019
I was nervous about using an online service, but it was simple and Preeti and her team were great. We had a wonderful trip that included everything we wanted to see and a couple less-known places that we really enjoyed. And, Preeti helped us however needed while we were there, including re-scheduling a tour for a later time. We could not be happier with the service we received.
Iceland with Teens · Iceland - Aug 4 - Aug 9, 2019
We loved our trip planned by Preeti and KimKim. All of the day-by-day instructions were extremely helpful in navigating and getting to where we needed to be on time. Thank you so much for suggesting that the Price family go up to the lighthouse at Gardur. We met the funniest gentleman manning the lighthouse coffee shop and spend a good deal of time listening to his stories.
We weren't sure we would enjoy all of the driving along the South coast, but when we were done, we really... read more
Trip to Iceland · Iceland - Jul 20 - Jul 28, 2019
Our experience with Preeti and the kimkim service was excellent. Our 9 day trip to Iceland was our first family trip abroad and it couldn't have gone smoother. Once off the plane, our rental car was waiting and was all tricked out with wifi and plenty of leg room. Our itinerary provided by Preeti was excellent, we never felt rushed, yet there was so much they recommended we see. The guides were excellent, we did an ATV tour on black sand beaches and into a gorgeous valley (this was... read more
Iceland · Iceland - Jul 23 - Jul 26, 2019
Sotiria made it so easy to set up our trip. The itinerary and all pick-up and drop-off arrangements were perfect. The tours were everything we hoped they would be.
The guides were knowledgeable and professional. We are very glad we booked with Sotiria.
Sister's Trip · Iceland - Jul 23 - Jul 27, 2019
Preeti listened to our desires for our Iceland trip and developed an itinerary that was perfect. We skipped a few things to cut down on the driving time and increased our outdoor time.
7 Days in Iceland - 4 Unique Road Trip Itineraries · Iceland - Jul 15 - Jul 24, 2019
10 days, 9 nights in Iceland... trip of a lifetime. Caroline was so in tune with what we wanted to see and she made sure to include all the right places to view puffins, (we saw thousands), as well as magnificent scenery and all the suggestions for spectacular sights. The ease of hotel check in, car rental and all the ferry schedules and tickets were perfect. Each hotel offered a great breakfast to start our day, for the many km's we drove and walked. Grimsey Island the best for the... read more
7 Days Exploring the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, Westfjords, and Golden Circle · Iceland - Jul 3 - Jul 10, 2019
I can't believe how easy it was setting everything up for this trip. Actually, all I did was get airline tickets and pack, Caroline did the rest! My son chose Iceland as a place he wanted to visit and Caroline made sure that we were able to enjoy so many activities while we were there. The hotels she booked were great, as well as making sure we have a rental car waiting for us. The itinerary was easy to follow and there was even a day in there that we decided to skip the suggested... read more
15/40 · Iceland - Jul 8 - Jul 14, 2019
We started to try planning on our own, but all the choices seemed a tad overwhelming! Preeti was great in helping plan a trip that really hit the areas we wanted to see. We enjoyed the places we stayed and saw the beautiful Eastern fjords. We really enjoyed the adventures of the going on the glacier hike and the ice cave tour. We unfortunately weren't able to hit all the recommended stops just due to time but I feel we hit the majority of them. We were able to cram quite a bit into our week... read more
Trip to Iceland · Iceland - Jul 15 - Jul 19, 2019
We appreciated how hard Emanuela worked to ensure that we had a great trip. We found him to be knowledgeable throughout the pre planning stages. It helped to make for an awesome trip knowing that everything was looked after. Even when there was a mix up with our Glacier Hike, he was readily offering a refund but thankfully we were able to have the company squeeze us in.
My only feedback would be to offer more support in answering questions once we were there. We had asked about a pool,... read more
Southern Iceland: Explore Volcanoes, Lagoons, Glaciers and Hiking Trails - 8 day Itinerary · Iceland - Jul 11 - Jul 19, 2019
We just returned from our amazing trip to Iceland. Preeti planned a great itinerary for us, with the perfect mix of activities and sightseeing for a family of 3 with a 10-year-old. Highlights included a glacier hike, horseback riding through the hot springs, exploring lava caves and soaking in the hot baths at Krauma. The waterfalls and glaciers were epic. Each one, unique and awe-inspiring. We covered a lot of ground over the course of our 9-day trip and were blown away by the natural wonder of Iceland and its varied, other-worldly landscapes.
Iceland + Norway · Iceland - Jun 28 - Jul 6, 2019
Preeti was a great specialist, she planned a great route and every detail was organized perfectly. It was super easy to do the self-drive and we really enjoyed the trip she planned for us.
I really recommend kimkim and Preeti for an iceland trip.
Trip to Iceland · Iceland - Jul 9 - Jul 14, 2019
Absolute first rate experience - used kimkim for the first time and was not disappointed. Sotiria is super helpful and planned a great itinerary for us, tailored to our interests and timeline while also highlighting the best that Iceland has to offer. Special thanks to her for adding my spouse to the trip just 8-10 days before I was scheduled to leave! It ended up being a very memorable trip, and I will most definitely use the site again and recommend it to others (have already been doing... read more
Iceland in July · Iceland - Jul 5 - Jul 11, 2019
We just got back and we had a great vacation. It was just the right amount of time and travel. It was very easy to navigate Iceland thanks to your navigation and picks.
Hotel 1001 5 stars the best place. Great food and room the folks were very friendly. Staying there 2 nights was great. Lots to see on side trips.
Lilja Guesthouse - 3 stars. room was good breakfast was good. Not very friendly.
Hotel Katia - 2 stars Hotel looked nice but they stuck us in a small off building not in... read more
Trip to Iceland · Iceland - Jun 23 - Jul 6, 2019
Herbert was fantastic. The only reason I didn’t give this a 5 star was because we initially had another specialist Herbert who was extremely difficult to get a response from. I understand he’s not with the company anymore and Halldor was awesome. We spent 14 days around Iceland and saw many out of the way things that we never would have found on our own. The accommodations were all quite nice and the day excursions were great as was the scheduling. And in fact after we were in Iceland and... read more
Trip to Iceland · Iceland - Jun 29 - Jul 6, 2019
All I can say this was a trip of a lifetime!! Iceland is one of the most beautiful places on this earth. My daughter and I did the self- driving ring road tour and had a blast. Preeti and her team did a fantastic job of organizing our trip and customizing to our needs. I will definitely be utilizing KimKim Travel again for our upcoming trips. Thank you again for planning an unforgettable trip.
Trip to Iceland · Iceland - Jul 3 - Jul 8, 2019
Sotiria was so helpful every step of the way. She answered all of our questions and communicated often and provided lots of information. About 2 weeks before our trip, we asked if we could add another person and she made all the arrangements to make that happen. The hotels she booked for us were excellent.
I loved all of Iceland. Each place we visited was beautiful and awe-inspiring. The country was so clean - no litter, buildings taken care of, etc. The people were friendly and... read more
7 Days in Iceland - 4 Unique Road Trip Itineraries · Iceland - Jul 1 - Jul 7, 2019
Thank you Kim Kim and Preeti for planning this amazing trip to Iceland for us! It was spectacular and we can't wait to come back and tour North Iceland. Preethi was very prompt with answering all my questions and customizing the itinerary to our needs, I was 25 weeks pregnant and we had our 3 year old daughter along. In 6 days we were able to cover almost all major sights and then some, it was planned in such a way that we didn't have to drive more than 3-3.5 hours on any given day and even... read more
Trip to Iceland · Iceland - Jul 2 - Jul 7, 2019
Climbing the glacier was good, into the glacier was a bit contrived.
Trip to Iceland · Iceland - Jul 3 - Jul 8, 2019
My family/group of 5 went on our own self guided tour and it was amazing getting to build our own itinerary and work with Sotiria. She made the trip planning a breeze and we were able to fully enjoy all the sights and natural wonders Iceland had to offer
