Antonia planned the perfect trip! · Croatia - Oct 20 - Oct 24, 2019

Traveler: Kate C. - Local specialist: Antonia Ljuština

Antonia planned the perfect trip! The guides she works with all over Croatia and Slovenia are excellent, and the private guided tour of Plitvice Lakes was a highlight. She also planned an amazing excursion to Bled in Slovenia, where I took a hot air balloon ride over the lake - a truly unique experience that I'll never forget. I highly recommend Antonia for your next trip to Croatia/Slovenia!

Amazing Vacation Thanks to kimkim · Croatia - Sep 28 - Oct 11, 2019

Traveler: Esther W. - Local specialist: Antonia Ljuština

After this trip through kimkim, my husband and I are convinced - the only way we can travel is through kimkim, a fully-personalized and customized vacation that meets our travel objectives with private transfers from city to city, 4 and 5-star hotels, and all within our prescribed budget.

I found out about 6 weeks before a fully-paid-for pilgrimage to Croatia that it had to be cancelled because of insufficient interest. I had bought the airtickets myself and so had to make the trip.... read more

After this trip through kimkim, my husband and I are convinced - the only way we can travel is through kimkim, a fully-personalized and customized vacation that meets our travel objectives with private transfers from city to city, 4 and 5-star hotels, and all within our prescribed budget.

I found out about 6 weeks before a fully-paid-for pilgrimage to Croatia that it had to be cancelled because of insufficient interest. I had bought the airtickets myself and so had to make the trip. Desperate, I googled online late into the night and found travel platforms and companies which might be able to help me put together a trip to Croatia. Kimkim surfaced towards the end and I was exhausted and thought, “No need for more” but something told me to write to them too, and so I did.
Guess what, kimkim was the first to respond and Antonia Ljustina of Croatique sent me a proposal that covered all the places I wanted to visit with a clear and well-presented full itinerary within my prescribed budget. She asked if she could call me and within 5 minutes of chatting with her I made up my mind to go with her. I did receive several other proposals in the next few days but none could beat Antonia’s in terms of depth or appeal.

Antonia is the consummate travel professional, a joy to work with from day one. She has great ideas but listens carefully and the end result, she crafts a customized dream vacation for you – Croatia is a beautiful country and we wanted to enjoy the scenery, partake in the cultural and religious heritage and try the great local food.

Antonia did an amazing job for us – it was so easy communicating with her prior to the trip through the kimkim platform. Being local, she put together a most enjoyable itinerary with “must-do” experiences, beautiful hotels, and some of the best local guides. Private transfers, the way to go. No fear of being delayed by anyone and we simply zipped across borders….very different experience for the tour buses each with 40 or more passengers trying to clear customs.

Antonia welcomed us with a full package on arrival, we had a good chat on the phone discussing the itinerary and any questions I had. We also had a great app for the itinerary. She reminded us every night of the program for the next day with helpful reminders re passports, weather, etc. We could call her anytime for help – she was available 24/7 and we were in constant communication through Whatsapp. Upon checking in at each hotel, she made sure we were happy with our room and on 2 occasions, got us upgraded to bigger rooms with better views.

My husband and I had a very special and wonderful vacation, and we have been telling family and friends nonstop since returning about kimkim – a secure online Californian platform that works with terrific travel specialists overseas. You must check them out for your next trip!

Antonia, we so appreciated your diligence and care in both planning and executing our incredible Croatian Adventure. All of our lodging, transports and activities were well done and suited our needs perfectly. The tour guides added so much to our understanding of the culture/ history/ people...most of them exceptional! So many wonderful experiences, hard to choose a favorite...kayaking, hiking Plitvice, biking/cooking/wine tasting in Konavle, drives cross country, Hvar and Vis, walking the old cities, swimming in the Adriatic, accommodation update on my B Day and locating my luggage which was mistakenly taken....wow! We had a memorable experience and hope to return. We barely scratched the surface of what this lovely country has to offer! Thank you for your exceptional support throughout our two weeks in Croatia. We are so grateful Antonia.
