Anna-Maria Frid planned my family's 10-day trip to Croatia. She did a fabulous job, and we will absolutely use Anna-Maria AND kimkim again. We had six in our group, with the ages ranging from 29 to 66. Each one of us had a fantastic time, and couldn't stop raving about the lovely people and the shear beauty of the country . Nearly every detail of our trip was planned by Anna-Maria with our preferences in mind, and she performed nearly flawlessly. She was easily accessible during the trip, and when we asked for tweaks to the itinerary, she was quickly on everything. Anna-Maria was extremely pleasant, knowledgeable, accommodating, and an all around joy to deal with. We had drivers and/or guides every day of our trip, and each one was seemingly better than the one the day before. Well done kimkim and Anna-Maria. I'd give six (out of five) stars to each of kimkim and Anna-Maria.

Definitely a resort. Rooms seemed sort of shabby, and small. We were also unfortunately roomed near the bar and lobby, so it was noisy. In addition, the layout is kind of strange, and we felt like we were in a department store.

Was not exactly as described. We were not offered to go the restaurant at the end of the trip; and after we got in the van and started driving, when we asked if we were going to the hotel, Marijana just said, "yes", and then, "is that okay"? We said it was, because we needed to get back for another event. But I think had we not asked, she would have not mentioned the restaurant. So not a big deal, but not as described. But, the rafting itself was excellent! The guide we had was awesome.

I travelled through Croatia on a trip with my daughter that included many tours and excursions all arranged by Anna-Maria (AM). This was the first time I travelled with the assistance of a tour consultant. I am accustomed to making my own arrangements and I always travel 5 star/First class. I cannot express enough how seamless the entire trip was thanks to AM. Every tour guide and driver were of the highest standard along with all of the side trips that AM worked tirelessly to arrange perfectly. She has the best ideas and is very flexible to contour the trip to the interests of her clients. She is also very patient and takes the time to understand exactly her clients, and therefore, what to suggest and how to tailor the perfect adventure based on their desires. I ran into several snags of my own doing during the trip and AM responded immediately and pivoted to bring about the ideal outcome. I actually virtually over-hauled the entire trip at one point and she rearranged everything so quickly that you would think she anticipated it. If you ever travel to Croatia and don't use AM, you will be doing yourself a disservice. She is a pleasure to work WITH (she never pushes ANYTHING on you) and the utmost professional. I don't recall how I found her but I am very thankful that I did. AM-you are the best.

I cannot say enough good things about Anna or this Croatia trip that she and I planned together! I just completed a 2-week solo trip and actually started crying when my plane left Split, because I just didn't want to leave.

Some of the things that made this vacation so memorable were the little things I usually have to worry about all by myself when I do solo trips. I am famous for getting lost, boarding the wrong train or bus, getting meeting places wrong, etc., but this time it was a... read more

I cannot say enough good things about Anna or this Croatia trip that she and I planned together! I just completed a 2-week solo trip and actually started crying when my plane left Split, because I just didn't want to leave.

Some of the things that made this vacation so memorable were the little things I usually have to worry about all by myself when I do solo trips. I am famous for getting lost, boarding the wrong train or bus, getting meeting places wrong, etc., but this time it was a breeze! When you're in a new country it usually takes you a few days to get a feel for how things work, but Anna even went so far as to send me pictures of what my buses would look like, checked in with me just about daily to make sure I wasn't having any issues, and somehow also managed to make many last-minute substitutes for excursions when the ones we'd booked months in advance canceled due to Covid or other issues. She is truly a miracle worker!

Our trip (and I call it "our" because I feel like she was there with me the entire time) was a labor or love since I'd first reached out to her nearly 8 months ago, and she put incredible thoughtfulness and detail into everything, even down to knowing when I'd need a quiet day to just relax and catch up on sleep or put my feet up - I really did request a whirlwind of a trip!

This is the second time I've used kimkim for international travel, and I plan to stick with them for future trips as well. It's so easy when you give them a timeframe, a budget, and some general ideas of what you'd like to see and do. In fact, on this trip there was so much more I was able to include that it felt like I got a bonus week of sightseeing for my investment.

If I could give Anna ten stars, I would! I rarely visit the same country twice, but for Croatia, I definitely plan on making an exception.

Anna-Maria helped us plan a week-long trip to Croatia where we visited Dubrovnik, Split, and Hvar. The itinerary she put together for us was well adapted to our group and preferences and planning along side her was easy. She was always responsive and provided us with as much information as we needed both before and during our trip. Anna-Maria made it easy for us to travel from one city to another by booking our ferry/rides and providing specific details so that it was super simple for us to get from one place to another. She helped us sort out minor road-blocks along the way so that we always felt as though there was someone there supporting us while we traveled. As far as the bookings: all of our accommodations were excellent and we were well taken care of at the various destinations we visited. Our excursions included a guided bike tour, speedboat tour, a trip to Krka National Park, and oyster tasting. Each one was excellent, but we really enjoyed the guided bike tour in Hvar which gave us a glimpse of a different side of Croatia. Overall, the entire trip went seamlessly thanks to Anna-Maria's planning and attention to detail. Within just a few days, we saw, did, and ate so much more than we probably would have on our own!

We were looking for a custom trip combining an active multi-sport vacation with sightseeing and a family reunion (of my scattered family in the US with relatives in the home country). Anna-Maria was one of the few agents willing to take on a challenge like this, and she put together the experience of a lifetime! Her thorough knowledge of the various regions in Croatia combined with her connections in the country produced a unique and first-class experience, even despite the numerous challenges of COVID-19.
