Jane Davey

I grew up in the UK and developed a real passion for the great outdoors, which inspired me to work in travel. As a child, I spent my holidays in the UK with my parents and my brother. My dad used to race pigeons and they would often become lost. Quite often we would travel around the UK, retrieving my dad’s pigeons that had been found by members of the public. This inspired me to explore more remote areas of the UK.
My heart is divided between the Peak District (Derbyshire), Scotland, and Wales (as I have been to the summit of all the Welsh 3000 ft mountains). I live in the French Alps in the Winter as I love skiing. The rest of the year I flit between my home in France and my home in the UK. I have discovered a love for the Vanoise National Park, and spent the Summer of 2022, exploring the area on an electric mountain bike. I am a keen skier and as I live close to the Paradiski region, I can be found on the slopes almost every weekend during the ski season, and in the Peak District and Vanoise National Park in the Summer.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"With an in-depth knowledge of the UK, I specialize in not only single destination but multi-destination, including England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
My favourite TV program is ‘All Creatures Great & Small’, filmed in and around Yorkshire.
As I have been traveling to France for many years, I have a passion for researching the 2nd World War, ski locations, and summer activities. My love of the French mountains and culture was the main reason that I moved there in 2021, but still visit the UK often.
"

How did you get involved in travel?

"My Grandad was a coach driver and he traveled all over the World. On returning from his ‘trips’, he would always buy me a doll, in native costume, from the countries he had visited. I was in awe of his knowledge of how to find locations without a map. His passion and experiences inspired me to become a travel agent, as I love to find new places to explore."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I once traveled on a guided group tour on a Greek Caique Cruise boat, where we went island hopping. It was a rustic experience, and I met many people that had traveled. We slept above deck and looked at the stars whilst chatting about our travel experiences, swam in the sea and I saw a Manta Ray and giant starfish. We visited several destinations that were off the beaten track, met local people, and supported their economy directly, and I just took it all in."

Our trip initially was going to be a short excursion to England to watch a soccer match of my son's favorite team. In starting to plan for the trip my wife decided it would become a full family affair. Having no idea where to start we contacted Kim Kim and were delighted to have Jane become our agent.

Ours was not an easy trip to manage, I am sure. We were flying into Manchester, going to London, returning to Manchester...with 8 people whose ages ranged from 73 to 3. In addition to having a pretty wide age range, we had no idea what we needed to see. Fortunately, Jane did an excellent job of communicating with us. In just a short period of time we were able to develop an outline of our itinerary that we constantly revised and improved upon.

In the end, we have just returned from England and what was absolutely one of the best trips our family has ever had. With so many moving parts, so many transportation and ticketing requirements, having Jane and the team organize everything made it a seamless and wonderful experience. The locations for our lodging could not have been better suited for what we wanted and had asked to have.

Thank you to Jane and the entire Kim Kim team. We will certainly be in touch for our next overseas adventure. I recommend Jane and Kim Kim to anyone looking to travel to Europe, but not having a solid idea of what they want to do.

I recently finished The Trip of A Lifetime. It could not have gone any better!
It began with an Orientation Call from Jonathan . He explained how traveling and planning with KIMKIM works, asked questions regarding things I did and didn’t want to do, other personalization goals and budget.
I soon heard from my personal agent, Jane. We had great text conversations. Jane was patient with my endless questions and concerns; I was traveling alone for the first time, my first time international, and my first plane ride in nearly 20 years.
I proudly labeled myself as the anti-tourist, lol. I didn’t want to go near any trite locations that many tourists flock to just because everyone else does.
I wanted Ancient History, I wanted Ancient Religions, I wanted Archeology. Don’t send me to churches, don’t send me to rote performances. I wanted my own desires, not be a stereotype American Tourist.

Jane went to work straight away.

I had one location and specific dates that were mandatory: The British National Dressage Championship, September 14-17. I didn’t care when I went to nor left the UK. Everything built around that event.

Jane would send me ideas, questions, clarifications and I would send her ideas, questions, locations that looked to hold/meet my desires.
Jane was quick to learn me and my tastes, I’m an “odd bird”, lol, and very much an anti-tourist with different goals and expectations.
We clicked very well and spent six months planning my trip.

This was a TRUE bucket list trip.
I have an incurable blood cancer. It is dormant, yet it can become active at any time. This was my one and only time to physically navigate such a trip. I had been tested and scanned and was given the ok by my doctor to make this trip.

I had given Jane a rundown of my medical conditions and the limitations they impose on my strength, stamina, functions, etc..
She seamlessly worked assistance and help into every movement, hotel, travel and train.

The end result was a magnificent trip! Eleven cities in 30 days. Plus two days, one each way, of long distance travel.
I was supported, pampered and celebrated everywhere I went.
Jane, and her co-worker Flore were with me daily while I was actively traveling. We texted at least twice a day and I reported in daily to keep Jane and Flore apprised of my health(cancer).
They were on top of everything behind the scenes as well - there was a particular chain of hotels that my body found uncomfortable. Jane found an alternative option and we made the change. Flore discovered there was going to be a Train Strike that was going to impact my plans, so they found out more, made plan changes, asked me if I wanted to go with the pivot and we pivoted. Seamlessly. The whole trip was that simple; they handled every little detail and it put NO stress on me.
Jane, and Flore, also went above and beyond!
In one city I got digestively sick. I let Jane know I was cancelling an outing bc I was just too sick to leave the hotel. She checked in with me a number of times. There was once when I didn’t reply back in my normally swift manner, so Jane called the Reception/front desk and ask them to come to my room and check on me. Awww.
I wanted Ancient History - I got Roman, Celt, Pict, and more. I wanted Ancient Religion - Jane found a very Ancient Druid Worship site that dated back to 4,000 bc.
Yes. You read that correctly. That site was approximately 6,023 years only when I experienced it. It doesn’t get much older than that!
More Ancient History: I got to spend one night in a Castle, turned boutique hotel, built in 1380 ad.
Ancient archeology - one location had an active archeological dig site going on!
I even got to experience an archeological find I had seen discovered on The tv show called Time Team. All I knew of the day was I would be having a Private Guided Tour of an Ancient Roman city.
It was in the car ride over that the guides and I realized the destination was That One. I was fan-girling the entire drive over and the hours we were there. Other than a group of school children, I had the whole location to myself. BLISS. One of the guides even carried my phone and took candids as I walked along with the other guide. It turned out, as we said our goodbyes at my hotel, that they really enjoyed the day as well. They loved that I was so engaged, knew so many (few, really ) things, and wanted to learn so very much more.
And just how did it come about that I had such a glorious day? Jane. Jane found it - based on her knowledge of the UK and her knowledge about me.
I saw so many exciting things and places in 30 days, this day still shines brighter than the rest.
So
If you are of a mind to travel, KIMKIM is the only way to go.
Jane, and Flore, took my ideas and wants and needs, plugged in my sizable budget (see True Bucket List) and aligned them together for a breathtakingly beautiful and fantasmagorical experience.
I’d share more pictures here, yet I’ve 2,000 photos to search through - each a memory to delight in over and over.
Point being - I was listened to and made plans with a True Professional Travel Planner.
If I get to travel again, no matter the destination, I will always and only plan via KIMKIM.

Well, when this close to Loch Ness, you really must go for your trip to be complete, eh? It was a nice, though cold, ride over calm waters and properly narrated by the Captain. Once there, the Castle Ruin is lackluster. Though fully paved, the walkway is nothing BUT steep. I skipped walking the (very small) ruin and instead began the LONG STEEP walkway to the face/shop. I enjoyed the variety and bought some very functional cashmere socks and a very warm hat, both served me well during the remaining weeks of my trip. HOWEVER There is an EVEN STEEPER AND LONGER ascent to climb up to the parking lot and our tour bus. It was beyond exhausting, even for the Healthy people in our group. Yet, I’d have regretted not going - you only get one chance to be there.

Better walking path - handrails. Warning the it’s not so much a Castle Ruin as it is a glob of stones.

This is one of the most beautiful and memorable hotels of our trip, set on a lush landscape reminiscent of a time gone by. The accommodations are beautiful and luxurious, and make you feel as if you are living as a Welsh royal. The furnishings are beautifully restored, and the main house fireplaces and lounging areas make you feel as if you are at home. The restaurant chef makes incredible, sustainable meals with produce grown in their garden. It is a special place, and we'll definitely be back!

Having been to the changing of the guards many times as a child, youth, etc., i was looking for a better experience to share with my husband for his first time to London, and this does not disappoint! The guide was amazingly knowledgeable and enabled us to enjoy the ceremonial aspects of the changing of the guards, rather than just stand in front of the gates and "wait" for the guards to change locations. We enjoyed the music, the array of different guards and their various roles/dress, etc.

So when we drove to town and the driver told us about all of the wonderful places to get pizza or a pastry in the town, that was impossible.

Cleanliness & Comfort
We stayed in the new building, and it literally was brand new feeling
The Roseate (ex: The Dunstane Houses)
Edinburgh

Great service and the restaurant food was top-notch. My only complaint was our room was on the fourth floor with no lift. The staff was very helpful to carry up our bags. I would not suggest this for people who do not do stairs They did have a few rooms on the first floor, but still steps to the entrance.

Authenticity & Character
An old mansion. All decor and furniture were authentic from the period.
Location
Great location for quiet from the main city. Small walk to a few restaurants and amenities.
Staff
They gave immediate attention and went above and beyond.

Everything was cleaned daily
