Our guides were outstanding. Lucy in Prauge provided a detailed history of her country. We learned so much from her . Bernie in Salzburg was very informative as well and recommended many things to see and do as well as places to avoid. Our guide in Vienna was very excellent too. She spent extensive time with us and made sure we were comfortable with the transportation in the city. She was super smart on all of the history of Vienna. Our guide Alice in Budapest was very kind and took lots of time with us . All of them were so very good!!!

We could not have done this trip through Croatia and Slovenia without Nico or our local contact, Lucija! Lucija was very detailed in her directions, instructions, and was always very quick to respond if we needed assistance. Everything was pretty seamless and we had an amazing trip. The guides in each city were knowledgeable and personable. I would recommend Kimkim to everyone!

Trip was great, well coordinated, Jared was always immediately available with help / guidance along the way, even when I was abroad. I would recommend Mostar for future guests in place of Travnik day trip, but all else was interesting to see. Jared is the best!

Antonija and Jared did a great job planning and coordinating our ten day trip to Croatia. In Split our guide Andre took us on a great trip yo Plitvice Lakes. Hvar is a magical island and our favorite stop on our tour. Villa Nora was superb. In Dubrovnik our highlight was visiting (and tasting) an oyster farm in Ston.
Surprising Poland Memorable Experience
Nov 24 - Nov 30, 2019
The KimKim Team truly came through beyond my expectations for this short, but very memorable trip to Poland. The hotel choices were excellent, well except for one, but fortunately all others were top class. The drivers were very professional, puntual and friendly. The tours I booked were amazing, but also had plenty of time to spend on my own exploring Krakow and Warsaw. My visit to Auschwitz was with a private driver and guide. I strongly recommend it to avoid the crowds even in late... read more

I appreciate Nico asking what my interests are, because he was able to tailor our trip exactly to that. Lidja met us at our hotel, bought us a drink and talked to us a long time about the itinerary. We really appreciated the phone and outlet converters. She was very watchful and responsive the entire trip. Our walking tour of Ljubljana helped us get our bearings of the town, which is the most beautiful capital city I've seen. We enjoyed the trip to and from Idrija because our driver was... read more
