Chris Gravas

My name is Chris and I have a passion for unique experiences with an authentic character, cultural awakenings and nature explorations! I am also a part-time musician, occasionally performing with my rock/blues band in local venues. In the meantime, as a local agency, we keep traveling extensively throughout Greece to expand our knowledge of our country while making sure all our trusted partners maintain the high-quality standards that we aspire to offer our clients. We are very proud to call ourselves true Greece Insiders!

My traveling approach is based in two fundamental principles: Offering a truly memorable experience and getting you the best value for every dime spent! My challenge, commitment and personal goal, as your planning partner, is to offer you my 101%!

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Families, couples, honeymoons, gastronomy & wine, active adventures, cultural discoveries, nature explorations all over Greece!"

How did you get involved in travel?

"Having worked for many years in Sales & Marketing roles across multiple industries, traveling has always been my passion, taking every chance for personal trips across Greece, Europe and America. I first started as a part-time travel specialist some years ago, while also living & working in Chicago, USA, in a transitional period of my life. It was something I immediately fell in love with, and I decided to further pursue it full-time. As a life-long learner, I am constantly amazed by the vast wealth of my own country!

Greece remains a treasure of virgin, "unconquered" places and experiences to visit, see, taste, smell, feel, cherish...The opportunity to share my country with the rest of the world, and help them witness its unparalleled beauty, is both a challenge and a blessing, for which I am grateful!"

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I will never forget one of the road trips I experienced as a teenager with my family, starting from the cosmopolitan port of Ancona, then on to beautiful Venice, then to the picturesque small mountain town of Innsbruck, Austria and also Nurnberg in Germany, until resting in the wonderful Evian lake-side town of Montreux in Switzerland! This is a memory I cherish and I am thankful for the valuable time I enjoyed there with my parents and my two brothers.

Also, summer 2017, I lived and worked in the island of Amorgos in Greece for a whole summer season. Apart from being amazed by the natural beauty of this Cyclades island, I was deeply touched by the charm of the Aegean Sea and its everlasting sense. I had never felt so free in my life before!"

Chris and his travel agency are worth all the stars I can give. =) Initially I wasn't sure about using an agency, even one for independent travellers, because I like to be off the beaten path and have flexibility. However, Chris immediately understood what we were looking for (an educational gap year experience for my son - so not exactly a vacation, but not business either.) He was incredibly responsive, asked great questions, and listened to what I had in mind, which ultimately resulted in a trip plan much better than I could have done on my own. Moreover, it wasn't until we actually got to Greece that I understood the true value of working with Chris and kimkim. On our second day in Athens, my son got a skin rash and he was in quite a lot of pain. Not only did the staff at Sweet Home Hotel help me find medical assistance (including a pediatrician who made a house call to the hotel at 11 PM!), Chris was available as well, helping us find a pharmacy, rearrange plans as needed, and just generally providing support. As our trip progressed, there were very few hiccups, and those that did occur were either remedied quickly (or adjusted to something even better). I could not be happier with the service, and I recommend kimkim in general - and Chris in particular - to anyone looking for a bespoke travel experience.

Sweet Home Boutique Hotel
Athens

The penthouse suite was amazing, the unlimited buffet breakfast was delicious, but what really made this place stand out was the truly warm and welcoming atmosphere on the part of everyone we encountered. The owners went above and beyond to help when my son got sick, including finding a doctor to make a house call at 11 PM at night! Staying here really did feel like a home away from home!

We liked this hotel and the view from the room was amazing. Just a note that the photos make the rooms appear larger than they are - not a complaint, but I wish I had noted the actual square footage of the room rather than just looked at the pictures. I'd still stay here again, but perhaps choose a larger room for three people.

I'm glad we went - it was nice to try the variety of grapes used to produce Santorini wines - but the tour was very much oriented toward those who don't know much (or really anything) about wine.

My fiancé and I used kimkim for the first time for our greece trip and it was a beyond amazing experience- Chris who helped us book it really seen our vision for the trip and helped us make it come true. During our 16 day trip Chris was in contact with us at some point everyday verifying tours / hotels / ferries / transfers where good. We really appreciated all the tours Chris set up for us we mostly did private tours but for the ones we did semi-private we had amazing young tour guides and a younger group of people who we were able to connect with (this is something we haven’t always experienced with large groups so being with people your own age really makes the tour more enjoyable). During our trip we had a few weather issue with the ferry as well as a catamaran tour we had having Chris handled it so quickly causing us no delay in our current day and even booked us a new tour to help fill the day, not only did Chris make our arrangements with our hotel to verify we can stay the extra day in our current room when our ferry got canceled he also arranged everything with the next hotel for us as well and had it all handled without us even having to ask. Chris definitely went above and beyond with his help and guidance for our trip, he was always quick to respond to us and always was ahead of the game with a plan when needed. I want to also personally thank Chris for helping my fiancé plan a surprise engagement for me and also keeping it a secret! We have been recommending kimkim to everyone when they asked us we booked due to how impressed we were with the services we received- some small details from our experience- we had private pickups in Mercedes (every driver waited for us with a sign with our name), private fancy pickups for tours (all on time ),we had fast ferries to every location with assigned seats when applicable, we had fast pass in the airport for flights with fast security line and a special lounge, we received welcome gifts from hotels and tour guides as well as kimkim. We really feel Chris did a amazing job and would recommend him to anyone going to Greece !

We got an upgraded room by the hotel and our room had everything we needed and was extremely clean. There is also a pool with a bar as well as restaurant with a large menu for lunch and dinner.

I was able to provide specific guidance on what we wanted, and Chris helped fill in the gaps, share insider recommendations, find great local vendors, and most significantly coordinate all the flight/ferry/transfer logistics that had me looking for a travel agent in the first place. It was an incredible trip and I would definitely consider using KimKim again for our next international adventure. My only piece of feedback would be for there to be more visibility into the vendors that KimKim partners with once everything is booked and paid for. The names of the vendors we did our activities with weren't proactively shared and I would have liked to have been able to look them up in advance, which would have afforded us some more flexibility and control over our itinerary.

Hotel Reviews
Cyano Suites
Naxos

What a hidden gem. Hands down the nicest place I have ever stayed. The location was incredible, with sunset views over the Temple of Apollo from the bedroom balcony (one of THREE balconies in our room!). Exceptionally clean and peaceful. The suite is just far enough from the busy harbor walk to be quiet and secluded but within a ten minute walk of everything you need, including several excellent restaurants. And the breakfast is not to be missed - a tantalizing display of local dishes, fresh fruit, and pastries all homemade by the proprietor's family!

Olia Villas & Suites
Imerovigli

Located in the middle of the caldera, it's certainly picturesque - but the pictures can be deceiving. Our hot tub was essentially in the middle of a public sidewalk and afforded absolutely no privacy. The furnishing is sparse and many of the items are in poor condition. The concierge was extremely pushy and rude, criticizing our itinerary within moments of meeting and pressuring us to cancel our plans to sign on with other vendors he no doubt has a kick-back arrangement with. We were treated less like welcome guests and more like inconvenient rubes. I understand it may be the end of a long tourism season, but it's Santorini - the entire local economy is driven by tourism. For the price, I'd expect to be have been treated with at least the warm welcome I experienced elsewhere in Greece, plus better quality amenities. You can probably find a nicer, more welcoming place for the cost.

I'm very happy that you liked the hotel in Naxos, we constantly get stellar reviews for that establishment, as well as the owners, who offer a personal touch to their hospitality.

Regarding your note on the vendors, I understand your point, however we are bound by confidentiality agreements with them and thus cannot disclose them. We work closely with local partners who are constantly re-evaluated and vetted, so as to offer our travelers nothing short of the best.

Finally, I understand that the accommodation in Santorini, which you had booked yourself, was not up to your standards. This is another reason we usually advise our travelers to let us handle all parts/elements of their trip, so as to ensure that everything is up to the standards and compatible with the rest of the components. I hope that we will be able to do so in your next trip with us, in Greece and/or Italy, which we also work with!

They were not happy, we had do stop and pick up more people, etc. For us, there were several duplications with "Fairytale Villages and Majestic Views" tour. We finally got off the bus after Akrotiri, giving up lunch and wine tasting. Also Museum of prehistoric Thera was closed on this day, so they took us to Lost Atlantis museum which was not to our liking!

(2) you could tell he genuinely cared about what we wanted
(3) he was a great problem solver! From a flat tire we got in the mountains 🤦🏻‍♀️ to a last-minute request for a guided tour in Athens (which turned out better than we expected!), everything was so smooth

As far as what we did:

THESSALONIKI: We had a full-day guided walking tour with Konstantine - he was a great guide and great storyteller! We also really loved the boardwalk, the live music at the Palati restaurant, the rotunda, and all the bakeries 😋 Our hotel here - Urban Colors - was awesome too; super cool modern design and wonderful staff

PELLA AND VERGINA: Both had amazing museums that we wish we would’ve had more time in! The history and artifacts in both were I incredible. Also with the guidance of Konstantine

MT OLYMPUS: We did a 7 hour trail hiking, including a secret waterfall, and the Old Monastery at St Dionysius, and INCREDIBLE Mountain views . While our guide Mariza was competent, we wish she had been engaged with us and told us more about the history of the area and the park we were walking through. Would highly recommend the Mezze Mezze restaurant in nearby Litochoro

METEORA: Two days here - first day we drove ourselves around to four of the monasteries. (Tip - make sure to ask your hotel which days the monasteries are open and their hours, even if you think you know! Their schedules change depending on season and holiday, and we weren’t able to visit Great Meteoron as a result). Varlaam was our favorite monastery of the ones we saw. (Note for ladies: all of the monasteries have skirts you can borrow or buy cheaply, so don’t worry if you forget to wear one) Staff at our hotel, Dallas Boutique, was so helpful! They even helped us find a nearby abandoned monastery. Second day we had a four-hour hike to see the north side of Meteora and the Ypapanti monastery with our guide Evan (he was great!). Awesome trail!

We also saw the 11th century Byzantine church in Kalambaka - it was small but cool to see. Not much to it, and hard to tell what’s original, restored, etc (not much signage)

METSOVA: A marvelous stopping point on the way to Zagori! Make sure to eat lunch and get the special Metsovella cheese. Karma cafe is also a cute spot for an outdoor coffee

ZAGORI: (Tip: Make sure that whoever you stay has an ATV to help with your luggage 😅) we weren’t allowed to drive on the old roads by our guesthouse, and ended up carrying (not rolling) out luggage from the lot to the guesthouse (we stayed at Gaia Guesthouse in Dilofo) we loved the bridges and villages, and the Lithos restaurant in Dilofo. (Tip: make sure you buy whatever you may need (snacks, pharmacy, gas, etc) before entering the area - there are no stores inside the villages. ) Beloi viewpoint was also an easy trail and a great view! Stone forest is interesting if you’re in the area, but probably not worth a special trip just for that

IONNINA: stopped here for coffee and dessert on the lake on the way down south, and walked the boardwalk a little bit. We really wish we could’ve stayed longer! The castle looked cool

DRIVE TO TZOUMERKA: the drive from Ionnina to Syrakko in Tzoumerka got CRAZY. Really extreme hairpin turns and sometimes gravel roads. I’d recommend trying to arrive before dark (unlike us)

TZOUMERKA: This had our favorite hotel, the Old School Hotel in Syrakko! Beautiful place and wonderful staff. We also saw Holy Kipinis monastery, waterfall at Kouissas bridge, Palaka bridge, Anemoptrya Cave near Pramanta, and had coffe in Pramanta’s square (look for the fountain 🤣) The three tavernas in Syrakko were great for dinner!

NAFPAKTOS: We had lunch here on the drive to Delphi. Very cute town! We were unlucky, and happened to be there the one day that the castle is closed to tourists, but had an excellent lunch near a beautiful harbor. Very cute little restaurant area there (we had a food lunch at Nikos, I think it was called)

DELPHI: We had a WONDERFUL hike with great views of the “sea of olives” and a birds’ eye view of the site below with our guide Hilda - she was pure joy, and full of wonderful stories and history. Then we had our guide George at the Delphi museum and site - he was full of knowledge, but we were short on time. One hour in the museum definitely wasn’t enough :) and the site was bigger than I thought! Definitely worth taking a guide to get the full impact.

ACHILLEAS HOTEL: great central location for a hotel in Athens! TINY elevators but comfortable rooms and everything important in walking distance

ATHENS: HIGHLY recommend the restaurants Tazza (super fun baroque decor!) and Black Duck Garden (BEAUTIFUL patio). Acropolis museum is nice and centrally located - worth the visit! And our tour guide Eirini (for Acropolis and Ancient Greek Agora) was PHENOMENAL. If you love history or archeology at all, clear your schedule for her!! She’s an archeologist and a phenomenal storyteller, and our 4 hour tour turned into a 7 hour tour because we were having such a good time 🤣

Transfers, travel in between islands, hotels & excursions were all super seamless. Basically all we had to do is just show up. Took so much stress off the travel experience. A bonus & a super personal touch was meeting Chris in person once we arrived. We really enjoyed the software they use to outline the details of the trip. We used it as a reference the entire time, plus it was fun to read over in anticipation to our trip. Chris gave great suggestions for our free days, several suggested restaurants and detailed info with pics to each destination.
We visited Delphi which I highly recommend. So full of amazing history and in such a beautiful mountainous area. Our driver & guide that day were so informative, it was like hanging out with friends for the day. From Athens we flew to Crete. Such a lush island. We really enjoyed the port towns and visiting the smaller villages in the countryside, tasting grapes from the vine & eating fresh cheese from the farm. From Crete we took a ferry to Santorini. That island is a dream, tall cliffs, blue waters & white buildings. Our hotel was nestled in the cliff side and the views spectacular. We enjoyed watching the famous sunsets from the pool or our balcony. We did a wine tasting & cooking class while in Santorini. Such a fun & wonderful experience of delicious wines & local foods. The chef & guides were so fun.
From Santorini we ferried to Naxos. One of my favorites because it had beautiful sandy beaches, clear water & mountains. We hiked mount Zas & checked out the cave as well. One of our favorite experiences. The rest of our time on Naxos consisted of lazy sunning at the beach which was such a perfect close to our vacation. Greece was a highly anticipated trip that had been on my bucket list for many years. Chris put together an amazing experience we will not forget.

Last minute Greece Holiday - Perfect
My wife and I were on a cruise that ended in Athens. We planned an additional 4 days in Greece. We had never been to Greece, and we didn't know what to do. I was researching some direction, and came upon Kimkim. Upon inquiry, the request was sent to a vetted travel and hospitality company in Athens. Lucky for us, the request landed on Chris's desk. We were putting this together days before we disembarked in Athens. The only thing we knew, is that we wanted to spend 2 days in the Peloponnese Nafplio area, and 2 days in Athens, including a Jewish History tour and the Acropolis. The communication between Chris and I was so seamless, and the ideas, were flowing. Chris managed every aspect of our 4 day holiday. Chris arranged the hotel, a driver for us to pick us up at the port, drive to Nafplio, and be available for what we might need. We couldn't have been luckier than to have Andreas with us, laying out the area, giving us information on options, and with Chris, arranged 2 private tours with George to see the ruins at Epidaurus, and the ancient kingdom of Mycenae. Everything was perfect - and I mean perfect. (We are very discriminating travelers). Andreas drove us to Athens to our hotel for the remaining 2 days. Chris once again, did not disappoint, and scheduled our private guide Giota, who is remarkable, fabulous and so knowledgeable. An archeologist and historian who took us to the acropolis at the sunset hour. It was quite hot, but her spirit, her personality and of course the subject matter, just superb. The following day, Giota took us to the Jewish museum, and arranged a private docent tour, and then on to the synagogue. Lots of planning and security was done behind the scenes - but when Donna and I got there, everything was in order.

To conclude - all of my expectations were more than met and were all exceeded. I would not hesitate to plan another trip with Chris, and his company. This is the first European trip post pandemic - and everything was perfect and fantastic. Imagine planning a quick trip days before and having your travel partner, exceed every single expectation. Chris even found time to meet me at my hotel in Athens to welcome me properly. I will be doing more business with Kimkim and with Chris on locations his company works in. What a pleasure and what a treat. Kudos to Andreas, and Giota who treated us like family with professionalism and so much warmth. The last piece was our private transfer to the airport - and that was seamless as well. thank you all so much. Jodie and Donna

we specifically asked for this portion of our trip. We visited the Jewish museum in Athens. Our guide Giota, arranged this visit. Our private guided tour was perfect. The staff archiologist who worked with us was so knowledgable. SO much history, and presented in a way that everyone could take something away from the experience. From there, we visited a functioning synagogue in Athens. Lots of security and pre planning needed. Worth it all.

We disembarked from our cruise ship, and our driver, and guide Andreas picked us up at the cruise terminal. He drove us to Nafplio (which is about 2 hours), showed us the lay of the land, helped us check into our hotel, and was there to drive us, tour with us, and available each day for whatever we needed. We loved the fact that Andreas was nearby, he is warm, knowledgeable and gave us the freedom to determine what to do and helped us plan a few things. Andreas is a tremendous asset, and we loved getting to know him, as well as totally respecting his professionalism.

Was a total different than what the agenda said. The guides were still wonderful and Chef Livio was an absolute charm. We thought we were going into he countryside but apparently the Italy organizer was under the impression we were adamant about keeping it personal just for us. If we were asked we all agreed that we would have preferred the original pan even if it meant we would be with other people. One other drawback was the accommodations in Naples. The place itself was fine it was the dreadful neighborhood! We tried to venture out and each time went back to the hotel to eat both lunch and dinner! Pretty scary in that area.

I have always planned on going on my first trip to Europe since 2020. But with the pandemic, it was very difficult with planning. It wasn’t until this year, I made the final decision to go on a solo trip to Europe for the very first time. Not knowing how I would go about planning my trip, I went on the kimkim website and reached out to Chris. He has been helpful from the very beginning, and put together an amazing itinerary! I expressed that I wanted to go to Greece and Italy, and the types of excursions I was looking for in each country. Chris was able to quickly customize and put together the perfect itinerary for me. It was easy to follow and included dates and times for each destination, as well as transportation, hotel stays, description of each excursions, and restaurant suggestions. While reading the customized itinerary, I thought it was too good to be true! Days prior to my trip, Chris always reached out to me with any updates on my trip and asked if I had any questions prior. He was very helpful with answering questions on what to expect for each destination.

My 10-day trip included 5 days in Greece and 5 days in Italy! Nadia, who also works with Chris, followed through with me during my Greece destination. My first arrival to Greece was Athens. Traveling solo internationally for the first time was nerve-racking and I was anxious in the beginning not know what to expect. But just as stated in the customized itinerary, everything went smoothly with transportation from the airport to checking into my hotel! Nadia reached out to make sure I arrived safely. On the first day of my arrival, my first excursion was the Acropolis Guided Tour where I met my guide and enjoyed the wonderful walking tour. My guide was a wealth of information teaching me the history of the Acropolis and Parthenon as well as the greek civilization. I enjoyed the beautiful archaeological sites, temples and Parthenon. It was a great way to start my first excursion in Greece. The following trip in Greece included 2 nights in Mykonos and 2 nights in Santorini. I enjoy the beach very much, and experiencing the beautiful beaches of Mykonos and Santorini was like being in paradise! The beautiful island of Santorini has breathtaking views, where I admired the beautiful architecture and islands of the volcano! I ended my last day in Santorini with a gorgeous sunset view on the cliff during my wine tasting tour!

My destination in Italy included 2 nights in Rome, 2 nights in Florence and 1 night in Venice.
Upon my arrival to Rome, Chris followed up with me through video chat and discussed my itinerary and excursions of what to expect while in Italy! Of course, I had to explore one of Italy’s most attractions of the Vatican and world famous Sistine Chapel! Then I went on a walking tour viewing the stunning ruins of the Colosseum and Roman Forum! After my planned excursions, I explored more of the beautiful city of Rome such as the Piazza Di Spagna and tried authentic italian cuisine, pizza and gelato! From Rome, I took a trip to Florence known for its beautiful architecture and Renaissance art. This included a bus tour to Siena, San gimignano, Monteriggioni and Chianti tour where I got to view beautiful Gothic architecture, chapels, breathtaking landscapes, and ended the tour with wine tasting with our tour guide! I couldn’t end my Italy trip without viewing the beautiful city of Venice! It was so surreal being able to get a rooftop panoramic view of the enchanting city with the marvelous canals and renaissance palaces. I took in every moment of the glorious city. The next morning, I ended my last day in Venice taking a water taxi where I got to go through the canals of the lagoon and Adriatic coast seeing the last views of the bridges and enchanting city making my last day memorable!!

I had the time of my life and enjoyed my vacation very much! Being able to visit two beautiful countries and experience a trip of a lifetime was like a dream come true! In Greece, I enjoyed being under the sun and enjoyed swimming in the beautiful beaches and seas of Mykonos and Santorini! And in Italy, I enjoyed the guided tours while experiencing the cultural and countryside of each city! I am truly grateful for Chris for making all of this possible and putting together a beautiful itinerary for my first European trip! I highly recommend him and would definitely go back to him again when I visit Italy and Greece in the future!

Very nice quiet spot close to everything but a beautiful oasis in a busy spot. The breakfast was nice but the service can be slow at times when everyone comes down at the same time. Not a huge issue but the room had no iron or ironing board and the coffee was only instant coffee which I felt was low scale for a higher end property. We had a room with the bedroom upstairs which was nice but the stairs are pretty steep and could be dangerous for people that need to go use the bathroom during the night.

The beaches we swam in were delightful and refreshing. I would have liked more diversity in the locations after a while the archeological sites started to blur. I should have requested a trip to the monastery’s in Metiora be part of the itinerary or maybe included an island as a destination or tours of not just archeological sites. Chris was quite accommodating with my request to have my son join us and with putting together such an immersive trip over 18 days. He definitely delivered a trip that had active days as requested and many great memories.

Although he was not our original planner, Chris hopped right in and did a wonderful job of creating our Italian adventure. He communicated with us from the get go and always answered our questions/concerns timely. Transportation, tours and accommodations all went well. Athough the time was short, we felt like we were able to get a good feel for Florence, Lake Como and Venice, all special places that we would visit again.

Tours: We only had a few tours planned (unfortunately the museums were closed on Mondays in Florence) and Chris arranged several - one to the Accademia Gallery to see the David Statue and a walking tour of the city. I especially liked Deborah, the guide who lead the walking tour. She was very knowledgable and seemed to enjoy what she was doing. We were on our own in Lake Como which was nice not to have to adhere to a schedule. The food and wine tour in Venice was interesting but we felt the guide rushed through it as if she wished she were someplace else...

Transportation:
We had personal drivers for much of our trip. Cars were clean and comfortable. The bottled water provided was much appreciated. The drivers were all on time (actually early, for the most part) and even tho some did not speak much English, they had apps on their phones to help with communication. Our water taxi in Venice to the airport was a fun(and a little wet) ride. Maneuvering the train from Florence to Milan was a little tricky because nowhere on the board in the train station did it say Milan, but we went with the train number and time so we were ok. We had 2nd class tickets and the seats were quite comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our boat ride from Venice to Murano (extra charge) and tho we did not see a glass blowing demonstration, we found a gallery and made some beautiful purchases. We wish we had had more time there and also to go to the island of Burano.
We did not take a gondola ride, but used the city boat transportation both days we were there.
The ferry that took us from Como to Varenna was at times crowded but the scenery made it worth it.

Accommodations:
All were spectacular. I had changed a couple that Chris picked out initially based on my budget and they were well worth the upgrade. The Plaza Hotel Lucchesi in Florence had a most spectacular rooftop view of the city. The Palace Hotel in Como had a wonderful view of the lake from our room. The Hotel Antiche Figure in Venice was a small boutique hotel (no view from rooms) that was a personal favorite of Chris's and the couple who ran it was so kind and helpful.
Although we are not big breakfast eaters, all of the hotels provided abundant and delicious spreads each morning. And they thankfully all had A/C!!

It was good, but very crowded at the Accademia making it a little hard to focus on what our tour guide was saying.

Best of Florence walking tour
Florence

I thought our tour guide Deborah was great! She was quite enthusiastic and informative about her city and I loved her accent.

Cicchetti & Wine Tour
Venice

This was a private tour, just me and my husband and the tour guide. She took us to several small bars and we sampled small plates/tapas and wine in the busy Rialto (?) section of town. The food was a bit exotic for our taste - anchovies, octupus, creamed cod etc but that was described to us when we chose it. Wine pours were generous. Although we enjoyed it, we felt a little rushed through this tour and it seemed like the tour guide wished she were someplace else.

Departure day
Italy

Our driver didn't arrive at the specified time, but the hotel owners quickly got a hold of him and he was there within 5 minutes. It was a fun ride to the airport. Once we departed the boat, there was a person at the dock to help us with our luggage, since the airport is a good ten minute walk away. This was helpful since we had a lot of luggage.

Welcome to Lake Como
Lake Como

We had free time in Como to explore on our own. We took the Funnicular up the mountain for the most spectacular view of the lake and the town. The line to get in was long and it was hot and the bathrooms were a bit shady, but overall we enjoyed the excursion. The ferry to Varenna was very long but relaxing. There were multiple stops along the way but we opted to stop in Varenna, which was awesome!

We were greeted at the airport by a water taxi in Venice and taken to the sweetest hotel!! We felt like guests in someone’s home and the service there was amazing. We enjoyed watching the gondolas drivers out front with our breakfast. This hotel set the tone for our entire trip to Italy!

Andres, our tour guide in Venice, was TOP NOTCH!!! His background was in architecture, he was born and raised in Venice, and was extremely personable. His accent was beautiful but he was able to communicate easily in English!!

The quick train ride to Florence was a nice way to see the surrounding area. We enjoyed our tour but our guide wasn’t as seasoned but communicated well. Unfortunately, we were only there for 24 hours and that just wasn’t long enough to get a feel of the area. Next time, we will plan to spend some time at a Vineyard outside of the city.

We loved Rome and all of its history! The Colosseum was unbelievable and our guide was extremely knowledgeable. He poured tons of information into 3 hours. However, his broken English made it very difficult to understand much of what he said.

Later that evening, we took a FABULOUS cooking class. Davida and Aaron taught us how to make two types of pasta, two kinds of sauces, and homemade tiramisu. It was a small group of eight and so enjoyable. It will be one of our favorite memories of Italy.

The next day, we went on a food tour and also saw the marketplace. Luca was our tour guide and made sure our experience was very enjoyable. We also had an evening food tour that we canceled so our last night in Rome could be at an enjoyable restaurant. It was an exhausting but AMAZING adventure for our family! We plan to go back so we can also see the coast line areas. I imagine that trip to be more relaxing. I will definitely be calling Chris with the Kimkim team to make those arrangements.

This hotel was very beautiful. Because of our early tours we never got to eat breakfast but the bar and dining area seemed nice. I wanted so badly to give this hotel a higher rating but we weren’t able to get much sleep because the bed was extremely uncomfortable. The hotel sheets were very scratchy and the pillow was as hard as a rock which was disappointing for such a nice hotel. My husband and I could feel every spring in the mattress and we tossed and turned literally for hours both nights and woke up feeling exhausted and sore. I don’t understand how a Hotel of this caliber can miss the mark in such a big way on the bed. I feel it’s so unfortunate to give what “appeared” to be a five star hotel only three stars. Sadly, we would not recommend this hotel.

Finding kimkim was a godsend for planning a first time trip to Greece with my husband for our anniversary in only a month’s time!! We were connected to Chris our local Greek specialist and could not be happier with him and his agency as well as their partners, that helped to curate our experience. Everyone we interacted with was lovely. Our private transfers and guides were all punctual, knowledgeable, and laid back. They all seem to like their jobs and take pride in them and that’s very important for us and enhanced the experience. Notably we really enjoyed the company of one of our private drivers Yannis who spent an extended amount of time with us and was so genuine and really personalized our experience, Natalia our guide for our Acropolis and food tour who was so accommodating, and Isabella who led our hiking tour in Naxos who was so easy going. Everyone felt like a friend!

Chris chose excellent accommodations within our budget and with the characteristics we were looking for and even the staff working at the hotels were so kind and hospitable. We hit a few roadblocks during the trip but Chris handled everything timely and the setbacks did not take away from our overall experience, we had an excellent time.

I was skeptical about using Kimkim at first but so glad I did. It truly is made for the in-between travelers who want help planning a trip and don’t want to be in a fixed group schedule but also don’t want to risk or take the time to handle everything independently. It was nice to have a mix of private guided experiences as well as free independent time and on OUR schedule when it worked for us! We also liked that we chose the exact places we wanted to visit in Greece and got to see places we didn’t think of! Often packaged tours miss hidden gems and give you too little time in places. In 13 days we were able to visit Athens, Delphi, Arachova (quick stopover), Galaxidi, Kalabaka (town closest to Meteora), and Nafplio, as well as the islands of Naxos and Santorini. While of course we could have spent more time in certain places, we felt we had a good pace with each place with the assistance of Chris’ expertise. And once again, the “expertise” part was so important. You don’t want someone who will simply say “yes” to everything you ask, you also want someone to guide you to keep your trip pace realistic and really help you make the most of your time! We really valued Chris on this!

Using KimKim was everything we didn’t know we needed. I will highly consider using this service in the future!

Hotel Reviews
Philippos Hotel
Athens

Excellent location is the biggest advantage here! It’s located on a quiet street so you get a great sleep but it’s just steps away from the Acropolis museum, shopping, and restaurants! We had a micro room with terrace that had a view of the Acropolis and we loved the view and the bed was comfortable enough for us. Keep in mind “micro” does mean micro so it was a little tight to move around considering 4 pieces of luggage but nothing that ruined our experience. Main downside was our shower was so shallow and would flood the floor every time we showered so we learned to put towels prior to showering to soak up the water. There is daily housekeeping so this was cleaned everyday but mostly it’s really just a big inconvenience safety and comfort wise, not sure who decided on the architecture here but this definitely could be improved with a future remodel. Not sure if the other room types had this shower issue, maybe only this one. Otherwise no other complaints. Breakfast was great and the hotel staff were very nice.

Very nice hotel that made you feel like you were on an island getaway! Nice staff, great breakfast in the morning. It’s nice that it’s in a quiet area, but it is a little farther from Agios Prokopios ( the closest beach town) than I would have preferred due to the lack of sidewalks on the route from the hotel to there. It is only about a 10 min walk but can feel longer since you have to be cautious about your walk until you get into the beach town with all the shops and restaurants. But in general, not much sidewalks on this side of the island in this area at least, so that isn’t going to change much! Perhaps if we stayed slightly more central the hotel would have been noisier so who knows! Great hotel and service otherwise, just not the best location-wise.

Loved this hotel in the heart of Kamari - the calmer side of Santorini!! We had a room with a jacuzzi and sea view and it was an excellent way to end our first time in Greece! Great staff, great breakfast, excellent location in Kamari steps away from shops and dining and the black rock beach. Bus stop was also not far if you want to go to Thira, Oia, etc. I would absolutely stay in this hotel again if going to Santorini. Oia and Thira may be the more picturesque side of the island but with that come much higher prices and big crowds. It was fine to visit these towns but we LOVED that we were home based in Kamari - so much more laid back and affordable!

- Acropolis & Flavors Combo Tour
Athens

We loved our guide Natalia! She was so knowledgeable, paced the tour well, and knew where to STAND while we moved around the Acropolis. There were several guided tours happening while we were there and whether by coincidence or not, she didn’t have us dying directly under the sun when possible like the other groups! She also knew the best angles for pictures! The flavors part of the tour truly made the experience. We visited places me and my husband would have just walked right past that didn’t look as inviting as the other touristic restaurants if it was just us. This is why you need a local expert to show you around and help you sample really great food!! There’s an abundance of great food in Greece overall but it truly would have been a shame if we missed the places Natalia took us to! It was truly a memorable experience.

Divine Delphi and Galaxidi Private Excursion

The archaeological site and museum of Delphi are truly a divine experience! I actually loved Delphi more than the Acropolis! Our guide was excellent and very knowledgeable and able to answer our questions. He paced the tour very well. Staying one night in the nearby town of Galaxidi was a good decision with the help of our local expert Chris. It was a very nice port side town and helped the visit to Delphi not feel rushed. Worth the stay! The food in Galaxidi was also excellent. Tiny town but big flavors! Our driver Yannis was the best!

Nafplio was one of my favorite places! Vibrant port side city with great food and beautiful streets in the old town. Very romantic!

We spent about an hour exploring the Palamidi fortress (must do!) and then about 2-2.5 hrs exploring the town with enough time to shop and eat lunch. Probably could have stayed another hour if time permitted but overall it was enough time to get a taste of Nafplio!

Highly recommend this experience! If you like to hike or get off the beaten path, this excursion is for you! The beaches in Naxos are great but why not explore the center with some of the neighboring towns? Our local guide Isabella was such a pleasure to have as company! She felt like a friend showing us her favorite trail and tiny villages with some history as we trekked through. We saw only a handful of people doing the trails so it was nice and felt very private. We appreciated having a guide because I think we might have gotten lost attempting this on our own! We loved that the trip ended in the town of Halki, a charming little town where we had a light snack and and did a little local shopping.

Chris was kind, personable, and extremely helpful to us while we took our trip. He was immediately responsive by text or phone with any questions or concerns we had along the way.
Chris was very friendly and welcoming upon our arrival the first day. He had sent us a detailed itinerary for each day of our trip. We received ferry tickets for three different days when we arrived. Chris was also quite helpful in sending our final hotel a link in order to print a hard copy of our airline boarding passes. He arranged drivers to be ready and waiting to transport us to and from each activity and hotel. Each driver was punctual, polite, friendly, and helpful with luggage and knowledge of the area.
Each hotel Chris booked was luxurious and central to interesting sights, beaches, restaurants, and shops. The breakfasts each morning were sumptuous with a lovely, delicious variety of offerings.
We loved the opulent double room with sea front view at Saint Andrea Paros Seaside Resort. The porch was relaxing, the staff couldn’t have been kinder or more hospitable. The huge pool was beautiful!
Cyano Suites Premium Suite with Sea View was absolutely decadent! Two bathrooms and a huge space, also with a lovely porch, overlooking the Temple of Apollo. It was within easy walking distance to The Old Market district and stunningly beautiful beaches. The amazing homemade baked goods and frittatas, fruit yogurts and variety of coffee choices started the day on such a positive note!
We loved our Executive Room Caldera View at Agali House in Santorini. The private patio overlooking the Caldera was stunning. The pool here was a welcome relief from heat. We got our exercise in with the many stairs between the walking path of Firostefani and our hotel door. The hotel was midway between Fira and Imerviglio, so we had an opportunity to hike to both locations. So very scenic!
Katerina, a lovely, knowledgeable and friendly food guide, took us on a fantastic four hour food and drink tour through the Plaka area of Athens! Such fun, and an opportunity to be introduced to the traditional foods, drinks, and snacks that make Greece such an amazing place to visit!
The authentic Greek cooking class and tasting at Anezina Villages in Paros was a fantastic, memorable experience, and not to be missed! The instructor was a lot of fun with a great sense of humor, and tasty recipes. We can’t wait to try them at home.
The Traditional Village and Family Home Cooking in a quaint inland village in Paros was intimate and lovely! The mother/ daughter hosts were warm and very sweet and the meal was great!
We enjoyed our tour of the Moraitis Winery in Paros. We learned a lot about the production and process of Greek wine making. The guide and sommelier taught us so much!
The Santorini Wine Tour was absolutely fabulous, and must be included in your itinerary if visiting this island. Hercules was so entertaining, fun, and quite knowledgeable. The three wineries were great, particularly the last overlooking the Caldera. What a wonderful experience!
The piece de resistance on our final night in Santorini on The Sunset Oia Catamaran cruise was phenomenal! The Delos Boat with three crew was memorable, entertaining and so enjoyable! The native Greek,Alice, was a remarkable cook and created a luscious dinner onboard enjoyed by all.

Hotel Review
Avra Hotel Rafina
Rafina, Athens

My rating is more about the fit of the hotel for our needs and not a reflection of the hotel itself. It’s a nice hotel, very clean, modern styling, in an area close to the waterfront. But our stay was on the evening before our return back to the states and we got there after dark and had to leave to go to the airport by 3:30a. So our experience with he area around the hotel was minimal. The rooms are tiny economy rooms with single beds, the “double” rooms are two single beds pushed together, a quad room is two sets of two single beds pushed together. We stayed at the Athens Intercontinental Hotel when we first arrived in Athens and it met our needs substantially better than Agra Hotel Rafina. It had spacious rooms, better sleeping arrangements for families, etc. The rest of the places we stayed on our trip were AirBnB villas and residences where we had ample space.

Beware of the tiny rooms and tiny beds.

Sunset Volcano & Hot Springs Cruise on a wooden boat
Santorini

Sunset views were fantastic. We had smooth seas, clear skies and the perfect day. We actually went on a catamaran rather than a wooden boat. But I should warn that “semi-private” basically is a group trip of up to 20 people (or more on some of the catamarans). If you have ANY mobility issues please contact the guide first before booking and showing up. The way we had to get on the boat was a bit challenging and we watched a group of six elderly travelers turn away because they didn’t feel safe trying to navigate the slippery, rocky pier to hop into a rubber raft with a small motor that was shuttling passengers from the short to the catamaran that was docked 150-200 meters offshore. Then transferring in open water. I was expecting a marina or dock boarding. We got lucky and there were only 9 travelers (2 others besides our party of 7) so it was truly semi-private.

Food
Our food and entertainment wasn’t as advertised. The original description said we’d have bbq meats, seafood, and veggies… we had some pre-made pasta and shrimp, tomatoes and onions and whitefish. It was all cooked before we went out and warmed up on the ship. Adequate, not delicious. We had also read that we’d have jazz music on saxophone but that may have been on the original wooden boat booking and not on the catamaran.

For many years, my husband enjoyed planning our vacations, but now, we are spoiled! Chris did a fabulous job planning our family vacation (and we enjoyed meeting him, too)! We spent ten days traveling to Athens and all through the Pelopennesian coast -- Epidaurus, Mycenae, Nafplio, Olympia, Delphi, and Rafina. The archaeological guides Chris engaged added so much to our experience, too. Our first guide, in Athens, laid the foundations for the trip. Our walk through the Acropolis and the museum were ten times better because of our knowledgeable and friendly guide. We were with Ilias Papadopoulos for a few days, too, and he really put history and mythology in context for us. We especially enjoyed Olympia - our guide there was a delight, the venue was practically deserted, and her interpretations of the statues and their meanings brought the entire park to life. Delphi was also a fascinating site: the guide again provided context for the visit. Learning how the stories, politics, theater, and everyday life evolved enriched the amazing experience. I apologize for not having everyone's names.

Having an itinerary (all conveyed through the app Wanderlog - complete with directions and suggestions) made the experience virtually stress-free. The hotels Chris chose for us fit our family of five very well -- The Noma in Athens was right at the heart of the action, yet it was quiet and commodious. The Anthemion in Nafplio was beautifully situated. Galixidi and the mountain towns lent a quaint and adventurous aspect to our trip (though we may have slightly regretted taking the beautiful but mountainous and rather harrowing route). Our car rental was also arranged by KimKim, and everything worked out very well.

Overall, I would highly recommend Chris and KimKim for travel planning and implementation. I can't imagine having to book each part ourselves, and I am grateful to them for making our family vacation and son's graduation trip an experience we will always treasure. Next time, THE ISLANDS!

Hotel Europa
Olimpia

Wow - what meals we had here! We were only here for a late dinner (they gave us a lot of extra dishes to try, and they were fabulous), and breakfast. The breakfast was amazing -- they had such a variety, even of teas and coffees and desserts. The lobbies were cool -- actual Olympic torches (the family has a connection), and the pool area was beautiful, though we didn't have time to enjoy it. The rooms were spacious, if a little dated, and the staff was very nice. We purchased some olive oil to take home, too!

Noma Hotel
Athens

We thought the Noma was ideally situated for our three days in Athens. The staff was friendly and responsive. We had three rooms reserved because of the size of our party, and each was different, but they all worked. We enjoyed the tiny balcony on the second floor. The elevator was nice, and there was a little lobby. Our bath towels were the size of hand towels, even after exchanging them (but another couple in our party had normal-sized towels). One of the rooms had a bathroom that was not exactly private from the rest of the room. We would have probably rather have gotten breakfast on our own -- what was offered was pretty plain and monotonous -- a croissant, eggs, and coffee -- no fruit, no pastries. The rooms were comfortable and stocked (for a fee). The best part about it was being able to step out right into the heart of Athens.

The breakfasts were delightful -- we loved having such a wide selection and the dishes were refilled often. The location was convenient (since we had a car), and we were happy to stay a bit outside of town. We had two rooms (one for two people and one for three). I would have liked to have had a microwave or coffee maker in our room (for two). The staff was excellent -- there had been a small mix-up with the reservation, but it was quickly corrected and everyone was very solicitous.

Our guide was extremely helpful in leading us around and providing the context for the experience. The viewers were very cool, and we loved that our guide showed us all over the museum, showing us the connections between the Acropolis and the museum, and teaching us about the history and the meanings behind the statues.

Car rental - Nafplio to Olympia
Greece

My recommendations are the following: ** Change the pin in the Wanderlog app for the Delphi location. It took us to the town rather than to the site by the museum where we needed to meet the guide. We were therefore about twenty minutes late, and the guide had to leave us earlier than we would have liked (I think he had another tour). Delphi ended up being our shortest tour as a result. ** Make sure the drivers know where to drop the car off at the airport -- with a pin maybe on the app. This part caused a lot of stress and driving around, being unsure where to go. The person who dropped the car off to us was not clear, and it wasn't precise in the app. ** Make sure the driver knows what kind of gas to get! There are a lot of choices and we weren't really sure. Luckily, the service station people knew what to use !

- Nemea Wine Tour & Lunch
Greece

Because one member of our party works in the wine industry, we were really looking forward to a tour so that he could compare the sites. We really only got to see the cellars and the showroom. We asked some questions, but the guide didn't go too far off-script. The tasting was okay -- we were given two whites and two reds. None of them knocked my socks off, so to speak. The lunch was fabulous and gave us a great taste (ha ha) of some Greek food we hadn't tried yet. The venue was very pretty.

Quality of Experience
The guide could have shown us around more, found out what wines we liked, been around at the end...

Nafplio Coast and Palamidi Castle Foothills Hike
Nafplio

While the information was interesting and we thought a lot of the guide, we concluded that we prefer more historic tours. I don't think we realized that this "hike" was actually more of a walk through the town. We had, on the rainy day, already walked through much of the town, and we had driven up to see the coast the day before. I can appreciate the intent of the hike, but it just wasn't for us.

We loved our trip to Greece! Because we do not understand the language and transportation is challenging for people unfamiliar with the area, we loved the private transportation and carefully planned excursions with incredibly knowledgable certified guides.
We especially loved the walking tour of Rethymno with a local guide who lives in and loves her town. We highly recommend walking around the Acropolis and in Delphi with private guides in April avoiding the heat and crowds.
The hand picked boutique hotels were clean, centrally located and comfortable.
