Ever since I was a child, I was very fond of the road trips my family took within Europe. We went into nature and hiked mountains, or drove to sunny beaches by lakes and seas. When I was a student (not so long ago), I took shorter but amazing trips by train with my friends within the Netherlands... read more

Dear Emma,

I wanted to take a moment to express our deepest gratitude for the incredible experience we had during our recent trip to the Netherlands. It was truly a journey filled with unforgettable memories, and we owe it all to you.

Your meticulous planning, attention to detail, and kind gestures throughout the entire preparation process made our trip seamless and enjoyable from start to finish. From the moment we began discussing our travel plans, it was evident that you were committed to ensuring that every aspect of our trip was tailored to our preferences.

Your insightful comments and thoughtful recommendations enriched our itinerary and allowed us to discover hidden gems and experience the true essence of the Netherlands. Whether it was exploring the charming streets of Amsterdam, indulging in delicious Dutch cuisine (French Fries were amazing...already missing them; also the mini pancakes), or admiring the picturesque landscapes, every moment was magical.

Your dedication to ensuring that our trip was stress-free and enjoyable did not go unnoticed, and we are truly grateful for all that you did to make our vacation a success. Your passion for travel and commitment to excellence are truly commendable, and we feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with you.

Once again, thank you, Emma, for your exceptional service and for going above and beyond to ensure that our time in the Netherlands was nothing short of extraordinary. We look forward to planning our next adventure with you.

Warmest regards,

We had some input on the Bas' initial plan, and he was happy to make accommodations to fit our requests. Bas was also available to make some changes during the trip. For example, when a cancelled flight at the outset of the trip forced us to change some of our planned activities, he moved things around to make it work. We were able to get hard-to-secure tickets to the Anne Frank museum, and we had the pleasure of having tremendous, friendly, and fun guides for four of the activities. We weren't sure what to expect as this was our first full Kim Kim itinerary, but we couldn't have been happier with the trip.

What a pleasure it was working with Mieke and KimKim on our family trip to the Netherlands and Belgium! I have to say that planning and coordinating the trip with Mieke was actually a real pleasure. She is very knowledgeable and extremely responsive. I never had to wait for responses of excellent, creative suggestions from Mieke, at any hour.

Our trip went quite well. Mieke developed an itinerary for my three kids (22/20/17 - GGB ) that everyone enjoyed. We were in Amsterdam for 3 nights and Belgium for 4 nights. We are active and did bike rides in the countryside in Holland. We also did a bike ride around the ancient city of Bruges. To top it off, we kayaked in the countryside out of Ghent in Belgium.

United Airlines cancelled our return flight from Europe (just as they did last year - Oh, how I'd like to write a crushing review of UAL!). Anyway, we had 2 extra days in Amsterdam at the end of the trip. Mieke worked closely with me on this portion of the trip in real time while I was in Europe, despite the fact that I booked the hotel and activities myself, so she made no money from these efforts whatsoever.

Our transportation was spectacular. Our driver, Fred, was more than a driver, he became our guide and a friend. The mini-bus was a beautiful Mercedes Benz, and Fred always had cold water bottles for us. We stopped and charged the bus and got food at some cool roadside areas along the way. He always texted ahead of time with exact ETA's.

Our hotels were very nice, especially the Pillows Hotel in Ghent - OMG, it was a five-star experience. We felt like royalty. Our guides for Amsterdam and Ghent were both great and very knowledgable. We did a canal cruise in Amsterdam, which was fun, but I'd recommend a dinner or drink cruise in the evening. Also, be sure to have a rice table (reis taffel) dinner in Amsterdam, it was the best meal of the trip.

My only complaint is that it is not that easy to access KimKim on your phone remotely. I had to find an old email from Mieke in my Gmail box, and then connect to the website, and then select the trip itinerary, then finally, access a PDF of tickets etc. It was a bit of a hassle and could be better designed and more functional. But the good news, is that all your activities and tickets can be accessed from your phone with a little bit of work. So, I didn't even carry a backpack around for most of the trip, just my phone and wallet -- and that was super cool!

Three cheers for Mieke - she is truly a star and is great at what she does. You will love planning the trip with Mieke and KimKim almost as much as the trip itself.

Please add a sixth star, so that we can truly identify Mieke as one of the best travel professionals you will ever work with!

Hotel Review
Pillows Grand Boutique Hotel Reylof
Ghent

Beautiful, luxurious hotel. On a fairly ugly street in Ghent, so the entrance is not much to look at. But the hotel is wonderful and it's a 5 minute walk to the ancient city, without all the crowds and bustle. Breakfast is very nice. They have a gym. The staff is friendly and will pamper you, if you want.

Authenticity & Character
More modern than classic -somewhat of a contrast for an ancient city like Ghent, but very nice indeed!
Location
5 mins from old town - the facade of the hotel is not impressive, but interior is great
Staff
Very friendly and helpful

Dear Scott

Thank you so much for your wonderful review and amazing words. You make me blush :) It was a pleasure working with you and I am glad the trip turned out so well for all of you. You have been very flexible about the bonus time that the airline threw in by cancelling their flight.
Thanks for your notes about the documentation and information; we're working on ways to make this easier to access and more user-friendly. Your insights are very welcome!
Best regards,

We came across a hiccup where I lost my luggage and kimkim was kind enough to gift us a wonderful experience at the end of our trip to help soften the loss. I now can’t see myself traveling without kimkim.
