Dalmatian coast self-drive tour - 12 days, Croatia - Jun 7 - Jun 18, 2019

Traveler: James S. - Local specialist: AndAdventure Croatia

This was an amazing trip. Our itinerary was great with enough time to really get a feel for each place. Our lodgings were great, and all were located close to all major attractions. We spent time in Dubrovnik, Hvar, Split, Zadar, Plitvice Lakes, and Zagreb. All were great. Our personalized tours in Split with Nives and in Zagreb with Vlatka were fantastic and really informative.

This was an amazing trip. Our itinerary was great with enough time to really get a feel for each place. Our lodgings were great, and all were located close to all major attractions. We spent time in Dubrovnik, Hvar, Split, Zadar, Plitvice Lakes, and Zagreb. All were great. Our personalized tours in Split with Nives and in Zagreb with Vlatka were fantastic and really informative. Our lodging in Hvar was especially great. Our host, Mila, was so welcoming. She invited us in to her kitchen with her and her friends and we shared wine and food and wonderful conversation. Our wine and dinner tour in Hvar was great with a great dinner in an abandoned village above Hvar town, Malo Grablje. What a neat experience strolling through the ruins up to restaurant with great service and great scenery. Though crowded, the national parks we visited (Krka and Plitvice) were beautiful, and I highly recommend them. Veselka planned our trip wonderfully. She was responsive to our questions and concerns. She personally met at us the ferry port in Split to take us to our lodging. There was one minor glitch in trip requiring us to rush to cabs to get to a ferry. Veselka responded rapidly and resolved the issue. When we arrived at our ferry destination three hours later our greeter presented us with an envelop of cash to reimburse our cab fare. I could not have asked for a better vacation and a better planner than Veselka. I highly recommend her and her company. Anyone uncertain about visiting Croatia should get over it. It is a beautiful country with wonderful people, incredible history, great roads, and great food!

To begin Veselka Huljic was excellent to help us plan our vacation to Croatia. She was also available,
supportive and quick to assist us with minor problems. Dubrovnik was great. Hear was wonderful!

Our city tour guide was Nives and she was superb, very bright and very funny. Radar was fun and we enjoyed the city. Plitvice Lake National Park was beautiful. Our stay at Etno Gardens was delightful. Tim was absolutely amazing and very energetic. We had three meals there each of which were very good. Our final tour was in Zagreb. Viatka was so knowledgeable and interesting and showed her city with great pride. Our rental van was perfect and our entire trip was perfect. Thanks so much to Kimkim and Veselka for your organization. We loved our trip!

Our trip to Croatia was wonderful and it was made all the better by using KimKim. I normally never book trips through "an agency" but had heard about this site through some friends and thought why not give it a try. I worked with Ante to plan the trip and after providing a description of what we were looking for, he planned an AMAZING holiday. It really did meet all of our expectations. What I most appreciated was the constant communication and even though there were two little hiccups on our trip both times I was able to get in touch with Ante through the KimKim site and he took care of it. The nicest thing was that we actually got to meet in person at the end of the trip. All the folks that picked us up and helped us throughout the trip were amazing - Antonia in Dubrovnik, Mario in Hvar, Elena our guide to Plitvice, all of our drivers including Ivan were all lovely and made the trip more warm. Can't wait to make a return trip!

I've honestly enjoyed planning and communicating with you, and it was such a pleasure to meet you in person in my hometown.
I am really glad that you liked your trip to Croatia, including accommodation, guides, drivers, and all the people you've met during your trip :)
If you ever decide to come back, feel free to contact me and we can plan exploring the north like we discussed here in Split.
Kind regards,

Trip to croatia, Croatia - Aug 12 - Aug 21, 2018

Traveler: Karen Z. - Local specialist: AndAdventure Croatia

We can't say enough good things about the KimKim experience. We traveled as a family of four with 19 and 16 year old son and daughter and this was our first trip to Europe. Planning the trip with Ante was very easy. He provided several example itineraries which we were then able to adjust to fit our preferences. We were able to meet him when we were in Split, having coffee before leaving for Hvar. He was genuinely interested in us having a good experience. What made the trip so special... read more

We can't say enough good things about the KimKim experience. We traveled as a family of four with 19 and 16 year old son and daughter and this was our first trip to Europe. Planning the trip with Ante was very easy. He provided several example itineraries which we were then able to adjust to fit our preferences. We were able to meet him when we were in Split, having coffee before leaving for Hvar. He was genuinely interested in us having a good experience. What made the trip so special was the local people Ante set us up with, from the drivers, to the apartment hosts, to the guides; every single one of them was exceptional. I might not get all the names correctly, but it's worth trying. Antonia, our guide in Plitvice Lakes park was great. The park is very crowded and she was able to get us around many of the long lines the visitors were stuck in. Diana and Christian, our apartment hosts and Sea Kayaking guide in Hvar were awesome. The Apartment was perfect, clean, comfortable, with a nice terrace. Daria, our hiking guide to the Lost Villages was absolutely the best. The hike and the lunch we had in Malo Grablje was a highlight of our entire trip. We hated to have to say goodbye to Daria. The apartment in Dubrovnik, and our host Octavia, were also excellent. The apartment was located a short walk outside the old walled city, and had a beautiful terrace, with a small pool. We went sea kayaking around Lokrum island outside the old city walls. Luksa, our guide was really great. There are many large kayaking groups with commercial guides. Luksa was our own personal guide, and made it a point to avoid the other large groups, and educate us on Dubrovnik's history. It's worth mentioning that the drivers, both to Plitvice Lake and the transfers in Dubrovnik were also first rate. They were on time, professional, and very personable. Overall, the trip felt like we were visiting with family friends. I would absolutely recommend planning your trip with Ante. We will definetly be using Kim Kim to plan our next adventure.

We were lucky enough to learn of KimKim and be connected with Ante during our planning process. Ante helped from pre-planning, all the details during our trip and also met us in person. He listened to our preferences and helped us design the perfect itinerary including excursions and transfers. Our trip included a walking tour, bike tour and boating day - all were coordinated with amazing guides and were the perfect experience. Ante took care of (and communicated to us) all of the transfers between cities whether they were through fast ferry or rental car.

During the trip, Ante was with us the whole way - answering questions, providing tickets and information. There is nothing as beneficial as having someone who lives in your destination to help you with your trip. Ante went above and beyond and we were thrilled to meet him in person too.

I really can't say enough good things about our experience!! Highly recommend Kimkim and ANTE!!

A TRULY MEMORABLE HOLIDAY — HVALA ANTE!

From the 2 weeks of planning to the duration of our holiday, Ante went well above and beyond his role of local specialist, which we never expected from someone we met for the first time!

He was consistently available to answer any and all questions; providing useful advice and numerous options for all aspects of the trip — activities, dining, transportation & alternatives when the weather presented setbacks. Indeed, despite thunderstorms delaying our transit via Zagreb, he kept us updated via messages on the status of the subsequent flights and ensured our safe arrival. Ante hand-picked our tour guides to best fit our requirements and personality, even guiding us through Split when he could have easily found someone to take his place — putting in extra effort with no hesitance. Throughout our numerous holiday stops, he would send regular messages to ensure our safe arrival and that all transportation and activities went over smoothly; always courteous and never forceful!

This holiday was also very special to me, because of my intention to propose to my girlfriend (now fiancé) — Ante proved a great asset; providing numerous ideas for romantic venues and settings throughout the trip, culminating in a wonderful sunset dinner atop Srđ Mountain overlooking the beautiful city of Dubrovnik where she would say yes! In her words: "the proverbial cherry on top, making an already fantastic holiday... perfect!"

Thanks to Ante's positive attitude, friendly demeanor, willingness to help, and passion for his role gave us peace of mind, but also a truly personal level of attention reserved to family and friends: which is how we both felt after leaving Croatia — we visited a truly beautiful country and wonderful friend!

Hi Andrés, thank you very much for this beautiful review. I am really glad that all of our "secret" planning gave a wonderful result, both in trip experience and the proposal :)

I enjoyed every second we've been able to spend together during your stay and it was a real pleasure and privilege to work and meet both of you. Wonderful, easy going, and a great couple :) ( hope that you managed to talk her into GoT )

Wish you all the best in the future and see you when I come to UAE.
Thank you once again - friend :)

Kind regards,

Sailing and island hopping the dalmatian coast, Croatia - May 16 - May 22, 2018

Traveler: mike h. - Local specialist: AndAdventure Croatia

Ante did a fantastic job tailoring the trip to our needs. Allen and his wife Natalia the owners of Avocado were amazing as well. The islands we visited ( Mljet, Havar, Korchula, Saipan) and meals cooked on board were so much better than anticipated.
Allen has so many toys (seabob, electric bikes and paddle boards) you do not need to book any tours.
