Travelling is my favourite hobby, I have always loved it since I am a child. I have lived, worked and travelled in more than 36 countries throughout Europe, Asia, Middle East, Africa and South America... I like to stay in the country and understand in depth their culture, habbit, way of thinking, religion and obviously landscape. I truly believe that travelling enrich yourself and I have seen myself growing over the past years gathering experiences from all over the world.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"COLOMBIA! I have been based in Colombia for more than a year now because i fell in love with the country and the kindness of its people. I became very versatile over the years of organizing trips from honeymoons to business trips to family vacations. I would say that i always look and try to go to none touristic area to make the experience really personal "

How did you get involved in travel?

"well it´s started at a early age when I wanted to go abroad during summer vacation and/or christmas vacation. Then, i slowly started organizing trips for my family and friends. Later on, I started to work abroad and I knew this industry was appealing to me "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"it is so difficult to only select one. My top stories would be: sleeping in a bedouin cave, looking at the tresory of Petra in Jordan, backpacking through carretera austral all the way to the end of the world in Chili, sitting on a sacred crocodile in the jungle in Burkina Faso, diving with hammerhead sharks in Gallapagos, sleeping in a hammock in the high point of South America in Colombia, understanding the history and architecture of Amsterdam in the Netherlands

Bogota/pereira/santa marta, Colombia - May 17 - May 24, 2018

Traveler: Maria M. - Local specialist: Floriane Froc

This was an exceptional trip! Colombia is a beautiful country; a hidden gem. Floriane was as invested as I was in making this trip a wonderful and unforgettable experience. Every driver and every guide was pleasant, professional, knowledgeable and fun. Everywhere we went, the locals welcomed our guides as family and extended the same warmth to us.

Our 8-day trip included Medellin, Guatape, Armenia, Salento, Santa Marta and Bogota. My daughter are already planning our return trip.

A million thanks to Floraine and to all of our guides and drivers.

This was my first experience using KimKim. I was refered from a friend. I recently traveled for 9 days in Colombia. I use travel agents for most of my international pleasure travel. On the plus side my agent, Flor was very responsive both via email and with telephone calls.

This was my first experience using KimKim. I was refered from a friend. I recently traveled for 9 days in Colombia. I use travel agents for most of my international pleasure travel. On the plus side my agent, Flor was very responsive both via email and with telephone calls.

Booking the trip was a bit frustrating. I think this was partially due to my unfamilarity with kimkim. Also my impression was that while Flor was very responsive and doing her best to help but she lacked in-depth travel experience. For example, I thought I had booked both hotel and intrastate travel. I had challenges securing a particular hotel and also plane travel times that I thought were confirmed ... but actually were not. We had to go back and forth a few times.

On the plus side I had a situation in Medellin with a hotel I was unhappy with. The room had a leak under the sink and they really were not too friendly. Flor was very responsive and moved me to a wonderful hotel. Both the private tour guides and the tours in Bogota, Medellin and Cartenga were all very good with the exception of the private tour in Cartenga- the guide was a bit flat.

If there were a 3.5 star rating, that is what I would give. That being shared, I would give Kimkim another try on my next international trip. Thanks!

Hi Frank,

Thanks for your feedback. It is highly appreciated and we are glad that you enjoy your trip to Colombia. On behalf of KimKim we are very sorry for the inconvenience during the process of booking the trip due to high season in Colombia, it is indeed quite difficult to find availability during Christmas time. As for the flight, we faced several issues with Avianca airlines due to heavy strikes which cause a lot of rescheduling, cancelling and/or prices shuffling.

Thank you for your... read more
