Overall, our whole trip was an unforgettable experience and we can’t thank Tom enough for all his hard work in planning it down to the tiniest detail. Every connection and transfer was smooth and easy, with absolutely no stress at all, which made it all the more enjoyable!
Oslo and Bergen are beautiful cities and we learned so much about the hidden gems of both from our amazing guides on our private tours.
By far our most memorable experience though was the fjord cruise! I’ve never seen a... read more
City and Fjord Adventure
Sep 15 - Sep 22, 2022
Tom helped us fulfill our dream of visiting the Fjords and spending a fantastic week in Norway. With lots of advance planning, every transfer and connection went off smoothly! We skirted rain at every turn and enjoyed beautiful scenery on the Flam Railway from Oslo to Myrdal, on a RIB boat adventure in Flam, from our hotel in lovely Aurland, and on an excellent ferry trip from Aurland to Bergen. The fjords were even more spectacular than I imagined! Tom also set up personalized tours in... read more

Tom was infinitely helpful in planning our trekking trip in Norway! All of our hytte & hotel bookings went perfectly when we arrived, and everything was well organized for us before our trip. Tom even went the extra mile and helped us find a laundromat for after our trek. We never would've been able to do all of these bookings with confidence ourselves from the US, we are beyond grateful that Kimkim made this trip possible for us. Thank you for organizing the trip of a lifetime! read more

Jul 31 - Aug 6, 2022
Spent 6 days in Norway (August 2022).
Our guide Stig in Oslo was fabulous, and our walking tour through Oslo was exactly what my daughter thought was great. Oslo was easy to traverse, and we both obsessed over the art at the Munch museum (don't miss)
Train ride from Oslo to Myrdal and the Flam Railway were breathtaking. The highlight of the trip was the Fjordsafari out of Flam. Easily the most beautiful scenery in the world.
Wished we could have had more time in Bergen. Morning was... read more

We are back home in Maine with our two cats, the gardens are in late Spring bloom and we have many, many photos to be edited and posted.
We sincerely thank Tom Christer and the KimKim team for their guidance throughout the trip, from framing our itinerary to our final days in Oslo. Tom was not only a guide but a friend in times of uncertainty when we tested positive.
Times and technology have altered the nature of travel on many levels and a new set of challenges often await at every... read more

May 7 - May 13, 2022
Kimkim saved us because inly 5-6 days before our sudden departure to Norway they managed to make our 7 days beautiful and not too stressful like we asked. Tom Christer was very kind and helpful. He responded fast on our questions and requests.
A note that our room in Oslo was so small, that we could hardly open our luggages. And we requested a comfort trip.
Other than that the itinerary and accommodation were perfect for us. Thanks so much Tom and Kimkim!! read more
