Great trip to Iceland's South Coast · Iceland - May 9 - May 15, 2022
I was very happy I used kimkim to plan my trip to Iceland's South Coast. My specialist, Preeti, did a great job. She worked with us to come up with an itinerary that met our interests, had lots of great suggestions for things to see and do, restaurants, etc, and was very responsive to my many questions. During the trip,
a couple of minor problems were handled promptly. We'll definitely use kimkim and Preeti in the future.
Mixed Iceland Review · Iceland - May 9 - May 15, 2022
Throughout the process of being assigned to Othman at the start of our use of KimKim, we had difficulty understanding what he was doing or saying. It should have been a sign for us to back out of using KimKim.
Othman carried out a plan for us that seemed to ignore some things that were most important to us and seemed scripted and geared toward his personal favorite things to tell tourists to see.
The first example of "The Othman Scripts" was his "Welcome to Reykjavík" and "So happy you... read more
Iceland on the go! · Iceland - Apr 16 - Apr 24, 2022
Our trip to Iceland was nonstop fun & adventure! From the moment we stepped off the plane till the moment we departed our kimkim guide Rinolda had us covered. Day 1 we started off with a luxurious visit to The Blue Lagoon and a walking food tour in Reykjavik with our awesome guide Ben! After stuffing our faces we did some light shopping and headed north for the 1st hotel. Day 2 was a sightseeing / hiking while driving kind of day. We stopped for lunch in downtown Akureyri and visited their... read more
Iceland Ring Road trip May 2022 · Iceland - May 4 - May 10, 2022
Excellent trip planning from Fran. We enjoyed everything and the trip was seamless and easy to follow. My only concern is the price transparency. Hard to know what your getting is worthy of prices if you were booking alone. The price is all inclusive and you are not allowed to see receipts or know how much Kimkim is making for their services. read more
Iceland in April · Iceland - Apr 19 - Apr 24, 2022
We had a wonderful holiday.
Emanuela worked with us to plan a trip that was perfect for our needs, wants and time constraints. She was always responsive and regularly in touch before and during the trip. Logistically, the bookings she made for our trips all worked exactly as intended. We were particularly delighted with the company she chose for our two expeditions, the minibus and the guides were truly excellent.
In Reykjavik, Sky Lagoon was an absolute highlight and my favourite restaurant was Fiskfelagid although we sampled many and had lots of excellent food!
Adventures through Iceland · Iceland - Apr 12 - Apr 19, 2022
Emanuela was absolutely fantastic to work with on this trip. She helped plan a wonderful Iceland adventure and helped us keep our costs down while exploring all the beauty that Iceland has to offer. She made sure to include the 'must see' spots, while also taking us off the beaten path to explore in places like Varmaland. She was extremely communicative during the trip and helped answer all of our questions no matter how big or small. Would definitely use KimKim and work with Emanuela again! Snow mobiling is also definitely worth it :)
Our amazing trip plan by Terry · Iceland - Apr 13 - Apr 22, 2022
Terry and I emailed back and forth and she really got a good idea of what type of a vacation we were looking for. She wanted to know about us, what we liked to do, eat, etc. Then we had a nice long phone conversation to discuss further what we were looking for.
She listened and provided a few ideas and we revised and regrouped and tweaked the plan and the trip plan was fantastic. We stayed in 7 hotels over 10 nights. The selection of hotels were perfect. Exactly what we wanted.

Everything we were looking for · Iceland - Apr 16 - Apr 23, 2022
We were so happy with our trip to Iceland. Terry provided a very detailed and easy to follow itinerary. We so appreciated the convenience of having all of our reservations booked for us and easily accessible. The tours, hotels, and rental car were all perfect for our needs. Terry was excellent in communicating and providing helpful information. We will definitely recommend kimkim to those looking to travel to Iceland! read more

Emanuela planned an amazing trip for us. I traveled with 3 kids and their grandmother. Everything was perfect for our group. The hotels were spectacular, the activities a lot of fun, and even the dinner recommendations were amazing. Our favorite dinner was in a small local restaurant in Vik that we never would have heard about if we didn't have Emanuela. Can't wait to take my husband to the Blue Lagoon!
Unforgettable Trip! · Iceland - Mar 14 - Mar 20, 2022
We had such a wonderful trip in Iceland! It was our first time there and Emanuela was extremely helpful in communicating with us while we were there about any last minute confirmations or changes due to the weather! Everything was set up and very easy to follow, from the google maps to the daily itinerary. It was such a special trip and we would highly recommend Emanuela to anyone planning to travel to Iceland , especially for the first time! It was an unforgettable trip!
Don't go to Iceland without Emanuela's advice! · Iceland - Mar 19 - Mar 27, 2022
I have great things to say about Emanuela. We traveled to Iceland in March, which is not the typical or ideal time to travel there. We had originally signed up for a group tour but realized we wanted more flexibility and to travel just by ourselves. I had bought two different guide books but Emanuela was invaluable in telling me what would be appropriate for the season-- half the hikes and activities that I read about were snowed in or the roads were closed! She helped us pivot to do a fun... read more

Our trip to Iceland was an absolute adventure. We experienced true Icelandic weather with a red storm warning on arrival and the whole range of possible conditions after that. This understandably affected our activities/planned tours but Jenny and the kimkim team did an excellent job communicating with us and updating our trip plan. We received very helpful and quick replies to our questions and felt very well supported throughout our trip. Jenny did a great job spacing out planned tours... read more
Icelandic discovery adventure! · Iceland - Jun 27 - Jul 4, 2021
Everything Preeti did was amazing! We had enough time to explore on our own plus her suggestions of what to see and do made Everything manageable. I cannot recommend her enough!
I would book through her again. She knows this country! Iceland cannot disappoint, but having inside knowledge made it spectacular!
Emanuela was amazing! Trip of a Lifetime! · Iceland - Mar 2 - Mar 6, 2022
Emanuela was amazing she was informative helpful and was able to help pivot and adjust our schedule when asked and even worked through our flight delay to move bookings around on the fly. This enabled us to still see all of the sites we had desired without a hiccup. She listened so well to all of my questions, needs, and wants and created a trip of a lifetime for my children and I! All of the local nuances and recommendations she made were spot on. She gave us plenty of information and... read more
Winter Success · Iceland - Feb 23 - Mar 1, 2022
The February weather created a challenge as several of our booked tours were canceled or cut short due to storms. Our agent, Emanuela, was remarkable in rebooking tours, hotel rooms and reassuring us that she would take care of us!! We can't thank her enough for making our holiday a success! We visited the Katla Volcano, ice cave and and glacier; Víðgelmir Lava tube; Blue Lagoon water spa and enjoyed visiting the shops on Laugavegur in Reykjavik. We met so many nice people from Scotland, Ireland, England, Lithuania and even Brazil. To see Iceland in the winter was amazing!
Stress Free Family Vacation · Iceland - Feb 20 - Feb 26, 2022
Jenny was amazing to work with. Despite working with a shorter than ideal planning timeline she found us a truly memorable vacation experience. With a daughter on the autism spectrum our travel needs can sometimes be very specific with a lot of flexibility built in and Jenny found that perfect balance for us. I doubt I’ll ever plan my own vacations again now that I’ve experienced first hand how smooth this process was. She removed the stress of planning and potential travel challenges so all... read more
Great trip, definitely recommend · Iceland - Dec 10 - Dec 14, 2021
Using KimKim was a fantastic overall experience and I’d definitely recommend using them to book another trip. We were able to pack a lot in during our visit to Iceland and our guides with Hidden Iceland with super friendly and knowledgeable. It was so helpful and easy having our schedule set in advance, with a detailed packet of all of our activities. Our travel concierge was responsive and helpful both before and during our trip as well. We had a great time and I look forward to visiting Iceland again!

Our trip to Iceland was phenomenal! Emanuela designed a fantastic itinerary that allowed us to make the most of our 5 days. From our first glimpse of the spectacular waterfalls at Seljalandsfoss, every stop she planned revealed amazing wonders! The glacier lagoon was a highlight for us all! We loved dinner at Lava at the Blue Lagoon and lunch at Fridheimer. They were both delicious!

Emanuela did a great job setting up our trip to Iceland for us. She asked lots of questions about our interests and was extremely responsive to our questions and requests. She came up with an itinerary that fit perfectly with our preferences, needs and desires and exceeded our expectations. We chose KimKim to book our trip because Emanuela customized our trip for us when most other travel companies simply offered “canned” itineraries with little opportunity for questions or changes. Our... read more
One Amazing Experience After Another · Iceland - Oct 30 - Nov 5, 2021
Emanuela planned a trip that was one amazing experience after another. We followed her recommendations and were not disappointed with the sites, the lodging, and the restaurants. The guides for the glacier walk, Northern lights, and ice cave were extremely knowledgeable. Each was a unique experience. She customized in a few places based on our preferences and that worked really well. Iceland should be on everyone's bucket list.
Iceland Adventure · Iceland - Oct 30 - Nov 5, 2021
Emanuela planned one of our favorite vacations ever. Our decision to go to Iceland was last minute so we turned to kimkim and Emanuela to plan out our itinerary. The itinerary/plan was very detailed and included activities that we enjoyed doing. Every suggestion that she made was great including her recommendations for local bakeries. We even credited her for the wonderful weather we had. Going to Iceland? Using Emanuela to plan your trip is a must.
Lovely fall trip to Iceland · Iceland - Sep 21 - Oct 2, 2021
My parents and I had an amazing 2-week vacation in Iceland!! This was my third time visiting, but it was my first time driving the Ring Road; it was also my parents' first time visiting. Preeti was an exceptional agent to work with. We initially planned to travel in May 2020, but COVID-19 altered that. Once we decided to go in September 2021, Preeti was able to get everything arranged without difficulty. We loved all the hotels and excursions she arranged for us. It was so nice to have... read more
..Iceland tour Oct 2021 · Iceland - Sep 30 - Oct 6, 2021
We were on our own having a rental car for 7 days. Our walking is limited so we asked Preeti to consider that while putting our itinerary together. We missed a few sights due to walking and a few due to torrential rain and wind. The weather is unpredictable so we were disappointed that it was too cloudy at night to see the Northern Lights. That’s the negative. The positive was the spectacular scenery right out the car window, the amazing geothermal baths, a fabulous helicopter ride into the... read more
Absolutely amazing team · Iceland - Sep 13 - Sep 27, 2021

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

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

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.

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.

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.

Beautifully planned! Excellent job! Thank you😊 · Iceland - Dec 26 - Jan 3, 2020
Our trip was beautifully planned by Pauline. We did a 10-Day Winter Drive in the southern half of Iceland. Her itinerary was very detailed with interesting stops, restaurant recommendations and all hotel accommodations, noting what each hotel included. Our trip didn't go without mishaps, but to no fault of kimkim. They actually went above and beyond to make sure things worked out for the best. Our original flight was canceled causing us to arrive at 2am an entire day later than planned, but... read more

We had an amazing time and it was so easy to plan. Pauline took into account all of our requests and made it very easy and accessible for us,

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!
Could not have done it without YOU! · Iceland - Oct 18 - Oct 25, 2019
Thank you all for an amazing adventure in Iceland, your attention to detail, flexibility, and quick responses made us feel very safe as we dealt with snow, cars, and accommodations! Pauline picked even better varied accommodations than we thought were possible and we loved each one! Gauksmyri with its dear sweet horses, tour group of friendly strangers and delicious food were delightful. Vogafjos Farm Resort in the Myvatn area made geothermal baths, cozy warm wood cabins, and gourmet food... read more
Outstanding team · Iceland - Oct 23 - Nov 2, 2019
Michele and his team did a wonderful job. My expectations were high for this trip; and, my expectations were left in the dust for what my experiences actually were on this trip. The accommodations were top notch. The itinerary that was made for me, was spot on, perfect. Michele and his team were able to notify me immediately of an issue with one of the excursions I was going to take, avoiding me driving out of my way to find out it had been cancelled. The few questions I had, their response... read more

We loved Iceland and enjoyed the trip. Thank you kimkim and Preeti for arranged it. We are planning a 2nd visit to Iceland in Feb/Mar 2021 (2020 is already fully planned out), with more time spend in Reykjavik next time.
We loved the itinerary, the hotels and activities Preeti arranged for us.
- The Blue Lagoon was great. Well worth the admission fee.
- Horse riding at Eldhestar was great. Our guide was very knowledgeable and attentive.
- The private glacier hike was fantastic. Our... read more
Trip to Iceland · Iceland - Oct 8 - Oct 16, 2019
This has been the first time that we planned this kind of holidays and that we actually had someone else plan our trip.
Our overall experience was great. We would like to thank Preeti for her assistance in making things easier for us and for replying to our questions. We know it is difficult to set up a holiday plan for different people as the needs and wants of every person vary from one another.
There were some minor details that we all could have done better while organizing but the... read more
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

An epic trip! We did the Ring Road, & Preeti and her team did an excellent job of helping us build out our itinerary, reserve our hotels & rental vehicle, & set up activities for us.
nice scenic drive that can be done in 9 days · Iceland - Oct 1 - Oct 9, 2019

Emanuela was exceptional! Couldn’t have relaxed for the trip without their help! Appreciate all the attention and assistance that was given. Picking up the car reserved for us with hotspot was so easy! We had a wonderful time and can’t wait to go back!
Iceland itinerary · Iceland - Sep 26 - Oct 4, 2019
We were a group of 4 people visiting Iceland and we took several tours - the South Coast, Golden Circle, Silfra, Snæfellsnes, and the Blue Lagoon. Zeynep built our itinerary and gave us very clear instructions on the time and place to be for these tours. I will even give her credit for arranging for the terrific weather. When our return flight got changed, Zeynep was right on top of it and updated our return trip to the airport. Thorough, organized, and friendly! We were more than happy... read more

Preeti did an excellent job putting together our 6 day trip to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula and Southern Iceland. Her itinerary and suggested activities were spot-on, and she and her team were very responsive to questions and changes that we submitted. So glad we enlisted her help!
Trip to Iceland · Iceland - Sep 18 - Oct 1, 2019
Our trip to Iceland was incredible. The places to stay were a wonderful and except for the last night way exceeded our expectations. The last night was fine it was just a smaller room than all the others we stayed at so had grown accustomed to the beautiful rooms and locations along the way. The hints of things to see and do were very helpful. The food was fabulous and enjoyed the breakfast offered at each hotel. Appreciated Caroline's suggestion to go clockwise around the island. It worked... read more
Best Time of Year To Visit Iceland · Iceland - Sep 12 - Sep 26, 2019
This is the third time we have used Kimkim to plan a trip and it was, as usual, extremely helpful. We wouldn’t have had such an interesting and easy time of it without their assistance. The local agency, Iceland Offbeat, arranged for a rental car, provided us with route information and booked all our hotels/guest houses. They also gave us good recommendations for things to do/see and some places to eat. They booked some specific activities that we requested such as a glacier hike, whale... read more
Trip to Iceland · Iceland - Sep 12 - Sep 19, 2019
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.

Bubble tents were great. Could of had a bit more info on what to take in regards to luggage and also didn’t realise we were going to secret lagoon Pick up on last day wasn’t clearly explained we thought the bus was taking us straight to airport that’s why we had been given a later time But took us to depot where we had to wait 30 minutes. 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.
Iceland Trip · Iceland - Aug 29 - Sep 6, 2019
With only 8 days before departure Emanuela put together a great trip to Iceland. Before contacting KimKim, I had an idea of where in Iceland I wanted to go and some must do activities. After finalizing the details, such as driving distance for each day and the type of accommodations that I wanted I received a detailed itinerary for the trip. The trip was fantastic. I always book my own vacations unless I am doing a specialized tour (photography tour etc). Due to timing logistics I... read more

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. The accommodation and vehicle were both quite satisfactory - we had no mishaps whatsoever. And Preeti was immediately responsive on our few queries.
I would recommend Kim Kim to anyone wanting to tour Iceland.
Trip to Iceland · Iceland - Aug 25 - Sep 2, 2019
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

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!

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

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.
