How did you get involved in travel?
"I was born in Guilin, a famous tourist city in China, so I guess I was born with some travel gene.

I enjoy sharing my knowledge of China and Chinese culture with travelers. "

Our trip to china to celebrate our 25th weddind anniversary, China - Oct 10 - Oct 23, 2018
Max, the local specialist, did an outstanding job planning our two week tour through China. We moved around alot during the two weeks (planes, trains, boats, etc) and everything went smoothly. We were always met by local tour guides who ALL did a fantastic job showing us around China. Max put together a fantastic itinerary and even called us in China to make sure everything was going well. We will definately use KimKim again for future travels. (This will be our second trip using KimKim - my family visited Iceland in the summer of 2017). Iceland trip was outsanding too.
