Mathilde Dubuisson

Bonjour! My name is Mathilde, I am 27 years old and I grew up in Troyes, in the Champagne region 馃嵕 It made me develop an interest for sharing my beautiful culture whenever I have the chance (but don't worry, I won't make you eat snails!)

After traveling abroad for my studies and for work opportunities, I am happy to be back in France to make you discover what it has to offer and its bordering countries too! I was working in a school in Glasgow in Scotland as a teacher and in Sevilla in Spain as a travel agent!

How did you get involved in travel?

"I had the chance to travel many times with school, so I consider myself lucky to travel to Ireland or even to Latvia or Turkey when I was young. Then, while I was studying at university, I spend some time abroad: in England, Scotland and Spain. I loved spending my weekends hopping on a train and exploring these beautiful countries!"

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Being a huge Harry Potter fan, I will never forget the breathtaking views of the Harry Potter Bridge and the Black Lake."

Matilde was very helpful with planning our trip to Germany and Switzerland. She communicated often with me, and listened to alterations of the original planned trip. Once in Europe, I found that everything was well thought out and organized. I had zero glitches during our trip. I had no worries from a planning perspective. All accommodations were good, and planned activities were just right. I highly recommend KimKim and especially Matilde.

This trip was done entirely by email and communication through Kimkim. Overall, our experience was excellent both on setting the trip up and the actual trip. I got in communication with Kimkim in January 2024 for a June trip. Mathilde was assigned as my travel agent. I provided some timelines including destinations and some activities desired by us. As this was a continuation of a wine tasting trip that we had already booked, I also provided Mathilde with the itinerary for that trip to give her a sense of what our trip had already been planned as well as the level of service we expected.
Over several weeks of back and forth communications with Mathilde, we came up with a tour that met our needs, finalizing details by February and a downpayment made. In addition to some of the normal tour, hotels, transportation, we made a specific request for a hard-to-book tour in London called the "Ceremony of the Keys" at the Tower of London. While Mathilde had not previously heard of this tour, she did her research and was able to book this for us. In summary, the planning stage of this trip went very smoothly and Mathilde was flexible, cooperative and an overall pleasure to work with. She was also forthcoming with recommendations that we had not though of.
With regard to the actual trip, we received our itinerary and vouchers in a timely manner. The hotel choices were very good hotels with reasonable value for the money. While there were some minor glitches with transportation, we were provided with contact numbers that enabled us to sort things out with a minimum of stress. Overall, everything went off with us having a great time with a minimum of stress.
Highlights of the trip were the aforementioned "Ceremony of the Keys", the Seine dinner cruise, Montmartre, Versailles and the Louvre, both food tours as well as all of our guides and drivers.
In summary, a great trip with great service from Kimkim

When we started planning our trip, we knew we wanted to visit two countries: France and Switzerland. Navigating between the two was too overwhelming to plan. There were four of us, including 4 kids, and everyone had different ideas about what they wanted to see. The tours and experiences we had through KimKim really took our trip to another level. Our rep, Mathilde, was so patient and kind. It was a fantastic experience!

This trip was better than we expected. Everything planned very very well. Timing, etc. We had an early morning train ticket to Berlin and were picked up via private transfer, the gentleman met us with a sign that said "Schlabach" and took us to drop our bags at our hotel and then took us to the meeting point for a food tour we wanted to do. We arrived on time and he was very professional. The rest of the trip went the same way - we so enjoyed it. Thank you so much!

Mathilde did a fabulous job planning and booking our trip to the South of France, Annecy and Paris! Her knowledge and experience was invaluable, and all of the bookings and directions were seamless. I have worked with other travel advisors in the past, and, hands down, the KimKim platform and Mathilde's expertise were far superior.

All of our hotels were in a great location. Mathilde also recommended staying a night in Moustiers-Saint-Marie, which was not on my radar, and ended up being our favorite part of the trip. We visited the lake (rented the hotel's electric boat) and thoroughly enjoyed visiting the town and shopping for beautiful, artisanal ceramics. It is a true "hidden gem."

Some of our favorite tours included the Cezanne Wine tour that departed from Aix (with guide, Greg); kayaking in the Calanques with (Rafaelle, aka Ellie); cooking class in Annecy with Sibyelle; and a private tour of the Musee D'Orsay with Fabio. Having Mathilde handpick our tours/companies took so much pressure off of us, and they were truly wonderful. We also really appreciated having our transportation (rental car, train tickets, airport transfers) taken care of--it made everything a breeze.

Lastly, Mathilde provided restaurant and "things to do" recommendations in each place during our free days, and we did as many as possible, as time allowed.

I thoroughly enjoyed using the KimKim platform and being able to make small changes and ask questions throughout the planning process...it was so much fun!

Overall, I would highly recommend both Mathilde and KimKim...so much so that we are already planning a second trip with Mathilde's guidance!

Thank you!

My daughter and I enjoyed our trip very much. It was a great mother/daughter experience. Our hotels were all in great locations, close to the things we wanted to do. As I am 73, I was a little disappointed that some hotels did not have elevators as it was difficult for me to carry my bags up stairs. Otherwise, the hotels were all good, and the staff at the hotel in Bordeaux were particularly helpful and "sympa."

We also enjoyed the excursions arranged by Mathilde through A la Francaise. Two stood out in particular - the wine tasting in Bordeaux with Ben and the prehistoric art excursion with Anne. Both were interesting, well-informed, and simply lovely people. The only disappointing excursion was the one to Cassis, which consisted of a ride to Cassis with little commentary and 2 hours on our own. However, the guide that day told us it was her first week, so the trip may become more interesting. The scenery in and around Cassis was stunning though.

Train travel went well. There were some problems with the car rental because I damaged the car. The deductible was much higher than I expected, but it was noted on the voucher I received right before departure. In future, I think this deductible should be pointed out to the traveler with the option of booking their own car rental separately. That would have saved me a good deal of money.

Overall a very good trip, and I appreciate Mathilde's help with settling the insurance claim.

Amboise: The tour guide Sophie was very pleasant and took good care of everyone. We love the tranquility and the peaceful ambience of Amboise. We particularly love the cottage style hotel in Amboise. The breakfast lady of the hotel made very good fried eggs which us felt at home. The restaurant recommendation was also very good.

Bordeaux: We love Bordeaux a lot, its vibrancy and sunshine (though a little drizzle) made us very joyful. The city tour guide Jessica was very friendly, resourceful and professional. She taught us a lot of Bordeaux history which was very interesting. Another tour guide, Radouane who took us to the oyster farm was also very good. We enjoyed the spectacular view and experience of La Dune du Pilat a lot, we will definitely come with other family members and friends in the future. The trip was followed by a nice seafood lunch in La Co(o)rniche which made our day.

In general, we are 90% satisfied with the arrangement of Mathilde, if we are to name some areas for improvements, it would be better if you can work with the service providers to assign the tour guide/ contact to us a night before so that we can connect with him/her via Whatsapp earlier.

Thanks again, Mathilde (KimKim). We plan to go to Italy in 2025 (probably Easter). Hope that you can help us with the planning and arrangement. This time, we hope that we can pull in one to two pairs of couples to join us so as to make the trip more joyful.

Lucerne was our favorite place to visit during our trip through France, Switzerland, and southern Germany. The historic architecture of buildings and churches was beautiful. The landscape of the town with the backdrop of the Alps and the lake are absolutely stunning and beautiful. Everything is within walking distance. You have so much to do in this town with the transportation museum along with other activities yet it is a small town feel with amazing restaurants and history. My son asked if we would just leave him here instead of going back to the United States.

Daisy, was an excellent God, who was very relational, good at answering questions, informative, and communicated well throughout the tour. The driver was safe. The bus was new with a restroom and snack bar with big wide seats, and plenty of legroom.
