Slovenia and dalmatia , Slovenia - Sep 7 - Sep 19, 2018

The best recommendation would be using the service again and we will certainly be doing that. We like to be independent travellers but had found ourselves getting exhausted by planning and researching what to do tomorrow on our adventures. Now we have the solution. Let someone else who knows your chosen holiday location intimately do that for you. We gave Miha, the local man, our interests and guidelines and he planned the best experience I've ever had on holidays. Slovenia can take some credit too. Such variety all close to each other.

However, we were given a 54 page booklet of our trip, complete with suggested activities, websites, maps, phone numbers, opening times and tips that made our days travel so easy and accessible. Then, on meeting with Miha in Ljubljana, he handed over a phone, ours for the length of the trip, with all those things loaded and one tap and up came the route on google maps or the phone number to the local special restaurant that only the locals would know. It’s hard to say what was our favourite place in Slovenia. Miha chose totally different but equally enchanting destinations and accommodations from mountain farmhouse in the Julian Alps to Boutique hotel in Ljubljana to luxury resorts in Rovinj. A smorgasbord of interesting places to stay in a country that offers a smorgasboard of sites and experiences. So, I’d certainly recommend Kimkim and Miha in particular.

Miha was wonderful to work with. His description of our trip from start to finish was very well organized, accurate and so helpful.

Miha was wonderful to work with. His description of our trip from start to finish was very well organized, accurate and so helpful. The added plus was the use of a cell phone which guided us to each of our hotels and sight seeing spots in Slovenia through the use of its GPS. Miha answered all of our questions, and eased our fears or doubts about any part of the trip that we weren't sure about. We loved all of our hotels, they were centrally located and all of the hosts of each hotel were very accommodating and friendly. All the hotels were wonderful, but there were some that really stood out; Pension Berc,(one of the best restaurants we have been to) and loved the free use of their
E bikes, the manager of the hotel 44, in Dubrovnik Damir was also outstanding. He gave us a lot of tips as to where to go and what to do and carried our suitcase up the flight of stairs. We loved that Miha gave us a lot of flexibility in the planning and our trip was a perfect balance of activities and relaxation time. There were so many favorite spots that we wouldn't have the time to list them all. However I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to recommend Miha for your Slovenia and Croatia trip. All the guides spoke great English and were very friendly, and very knowledgeable. Kim Kim and their travel planners are the perfect way to go if you don't like to be in big groups and want to have the freedom and flexibility and most of all independence from a strict schedule.
