I've travelled to many places which include the Mediterranean, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, Fiji, Thailand and Vanuatu.
If you're ever in the Gold Coast, be sure to let me know and I'll show you where all the locals hang out!

How did you get involved in travel?
"My family and I went on a holiday to Fiji and I fell in love straight away and caught the travel bug. The more I travelled, the more I realised my passion for the industry and soon found myself working with the team at Global Tour Specialists. I really enjoy turning travel dreams into reality. "
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"Snorkelling with turtles and marine life in the Great Barrier Reef was a magical experience like no other and it's my backyard basically!"

Kimkim's associates in Australia, first Jasmine and later Hugh, helped us plan a wonderful 30-day vacation in Australia. Jasmine worked up a candidate itinerary and we worked with it, tweaked it, and fine-tuned it for several months -- way back in late 2019 and early 2020 for travel in August and September of 2020. But then COVID happened. We tried again in 2021, but Australia still had not opened up to tourism and didn't open up until 2022. We picked it up again early this year (Jasmine had... read more

Two weeks in east Australia by Judie Yamamoto and Charley Mullally
Overall, our trip to Australia, arranged by Jasmine through KimKim, was excellent. The accommodations were comfortable and for the most part spacious, modern, and conveniently located, quite more luxurious than we’d expected on the “mid-level” plan we had requested. Transportation (airport and hotel ground pickups as well as our three flights in Australia) went very smoothly, spoiling us for the return home when we had to... read more

Melbourne, Cairns & Sydney
Sep 9 - Sep 18, 2019
My Granddaughter and I had wonderful trip.Meeting first with Rogan Lind giving us an overview of what was planned was really helpful. All of the all of the hotels were perfect but the most perfect of all was the excursions we liked them all. Our favorites Sidney Opera House, The Great Barrier Reef, Penguin Parade,Kangaroos& Koalas in the wild. Trip guides were great especially Amy of Echiona Walkabout. I can't thank you enough for helping make this a memorable trip.
Sep 11 - Sep 20, 2019
Jasmine was very responsive to ALL my questions!
The hotels she chose were exactly what we were looking for. We especially liked the Pullman in Cairns and the Montra Bond in Sydney. Get location and value.
All the tours were wonderful. Especially the 1/2 tour tour of Sydney and the Great Barrier Reef Day.
The only tour we did not like was the Daintree Rainforest. Had we known how long it was we would have opted to do something else. Driving for 5 hours in one day is too much. I... read more
Sydney and beyond for nature lovers
Aug 2 - Aug 12, 2019
We had an absolutely enchanting trip to Australia, thanks to Jasmine at Global Tour Specialists! She created a perfect itinerary for us that involved adventures like a rock hopping river hike to a day spent in the rainforest sampling ice cream and climbing above the tree line! We snorkeled at four sites along the Great Barrier Reef from Cairns to Port Douglas, cuddled koalas, and just had day after day of top notch adventure.
Travel was seamless and included transportation - which was a... read more
