Sep 17 - Sep 24, 2022
Terry did a great job of managing things we wanted to see, downtime and our route. We enjoyed having a couple things planned the first few days then relaxed into our own schedule and our own pace for a few days. It was perfect!

Sep 15 - Sep 30, 2022
Sonia helped us plan a wonderful, personalized trip to Italy. Our itinerary was full, but everything went smoothly. From driver’s meeting us at the airport, to train stations etc - everything was wonderful. She also provided us with a concierge who took care of us during our trip when we had any questions or concerns. All the hotels and excursions booked were great! I would highly recommend booking your dream vacation through KimKim and using Sonia’s services. She was terrific.

Sep 8 - Sep 18, 2022
Norway is such a magical place, and this trip allowed us to burrow in further than our previous trip. Our trip had a nice flow, and our accommodations were excellent. We stayed in both an incredible boutique style hotel suite, and a fishing cabin in the Lofotens. Our overnight on the Hurtigruten Ferry gave us a taste of cruising and allowed us to take a RIB trip to the Saltstraumen Strait. We liked having 2 nights at our hotels so we could get there, explore and relax. Linda was attentive to... read more

Sep 13 - Sep 23, 2022
Audrey and I planned this trip together over a period of a couple of months. She was responsive to my questions and requests in a timely and intelligent manner.
All arrivals and departures were handled with lovely attentive drivers.
We were traveling for 11 days in Barcelona and Marseilles with a 1 day stop in Sete, France.
In Barcelona we went on a tour of Montserrat with Vincent. He was a wonderful tour guide. Friendly , personable attentive, aware of the differences in his group of... read more

Awesome Trip in Every Way!
Sep 4 - Sep 19, 2022
First of all, the trip exceeded our expectations by a long ways! Thank you so much Chris for all your help in the planning and execution!
Our first stop was in Athens, where we stayed in the plako district in a very cute suite in a perfect location. The hostess there [named Magna, I believe] was super helpful in every way.
We were met at the hotel and taken to the fast ferry by an individual whose name I cannot remember. In fact we were always met on time in each location but the names... read more

Duration: 2 weeks
Travel Agent: Ina
The two weeks that he had organized through kimkim was a terrific travel experience! We will first start of by saying that they do a wonderful job on working with a set budget. Ina was our travel agent for our excursion in Italy and the Mediterranean and was able to provide a very detailed itinerary, then amend it based on our thoughts, prioritization and budget. Each of our destination... read more

Sep 6 - Sep 17, 2022
We loved the itinerary that Robi put together for us, particularly the whole area of Istria, the Plitvice lakes and Krka National Park. We had visited Split and Dubrovnik previously and it was interesting to see how they had become so much more 'touristy'. We were pleased that the visit to Mostar was included too. All our accommodation was excellent, welcoming staff, good food and well situated. A minor criticism..the air conditioning in the vehicle could have been more efficient for those... read more
Paris and Marseille
Sep 19 - Sep 25, 2022
Audrey did a phenomenal job planning our week in France. We were concerned that attempting to do Paris and the Provence region would be too ambitious, but it was not! Audrey truly listened to our desires and managed to plan a trip that was the perfect mix of seeing all the major landmarks, to small intimate tours that really captured the culture and flavor of Paris and Marseille. We had plenty of time to sit at cafes sipping some lovely French wine and taking it all in!
Another perk of... read more
Athens, Siros, Naxos and Santorini - FABULOUS
Sep 14 - Sep 27, 2022
The trip was amazing. All of the transfers came off smoothly and the hotels were great.
The first night dinner at the Ergon was fabulous, we could not eat all of it. What an array of foods! Pavlina Snoblova <email@example.com> was a great tour guide for the Athens food tour, a real must for those seeking some authentic Greek food and coffee. We really liked Efyenyi's guided tour of the acropolis area. Being an archeologist, she had some good in-depth knowledge.

What a wonderful trip to Iceland!
It’s hard to believe how effortless it was - my group of friends regularly commented on how well thought out our days were and we can’t thank Lisbet enough for her expertise and patience.
Overall, I found the KimKim site & service modern, simple and extremely convenient. It was just so easy to plan and communicate with our agent, Lisbet.
Lisbet is an Iceland guru. Beyond the detailed itinerary, pre-planned Google Map and reservation documents, she... read more

I think everyone (Francisco, Ricardo, Andre, Nelson, Diego, another Andre, Joao (and Daniel) and Claudia - all of whom were phenomenal in their treatment of 3 ladies visiting Portugal for the first time. Each and every one of them engaged in thorough and pleasant conversations teaching us about their country and sharing stories of great interest to us all.
History lessons accompanied by a genuine desire to let us learn about Portugal and its peoples were carefully and easily given.

Our trip was amazing! We saw 3 cities, Rome, Florence, and Venice and each one was just as amazing as the others. All of our transfers went smooth, our hotels were fabulous, and our tours were great. It was the perfect balance between scheduled tours and time to explore on our own. One tour guide in Venice named Valerio Coppo was phenomenal. He went above and beyond. His tour of the islands of Murano and Burano were exceptional. So personal! Could not recommend more. Livtours also... read more

We could not be more pleased with the trip that Marta arranged for us to visit Portugal. From our time in Lisbon, our spectacular hike along the coast in the Sintra Region and our final days in Porto, we were consistently impressed with the high levels of service, the lovely accommodations and the ease of executing the trip as planned via the travel App. We were able to stay in touch with Marta the entire time and she was always available to connect with us if we had any questions.

Sep 2 - Sep 18, 2022
Overall we had an amazing experience planning and participating in our trip to Morocco where we visited Rabat, Chefchaouen, Fes, Merzouga, Boumalne Dades, Marrakech, Essaouira, and Casablanca. From start to finish KimKim and it’s affiliate Original Travels accommodated our wishes and succeeded in meeting our expectations.

Our experience of using KimKim was excellent from start to finish. Everything was planned according to what we wanted. There are things that we have learnt from the experience and would ask for differently when we plan a holiday using KimKim again (which will most definitely do).
Thomas was always on hand and responded positively.

Thanks so much to Randall and team for designing our holiday to Costa Rica, and being so responsive to any requests or changes we had. It was our first time using Kimkim and they were very patient and understanding. They recommended a great mix of locations and activities for us and we managed to fit a lot into 2 weeks. All of the transfers went really smoothly and we felt really well supported throughout the whole trip. Pura Vida!! read more
KimKim service was fantastic and will use again!
Sep 22 - Sep 26, 2022
This was my first time using KimKim and was phenomenal in many ways. It was like having a personal guide with me and my group of 8 friends throughout my entire birthday celebration.
They set up a personal chef, photographer, five days of transportation and excursions.
The only thing that I am not totally favorable about is the lack of transparency in the pricing model. I had a friend to cancel and hike I understand the no refund policy after thirty days, we all know that all... read more

We thought Lorenzo Capraro delivered a wonderful guided tour of Agrigento.
We loved Professor Onofrio Prestifilippo at the Casale of Villa Romana.
Our tour of Ortigia and the Neapolis Archaeological Park with was amazing with Fausto Mignelo

Our trip planned by Johanna was fantastic! The hotels were all lovely, the food tour in Lima led by Amy was lots of fun and our drivers were all friendly and safe drivers. The highlight of our trip was our guide for Machu Picchu, the Sacred Valley and Cusco. Flor was an amazing guide-knowledgeable, resourceful, accommodating, considerate, and fun! Without a doubt she made our trip an experience of a lifetime! I have already recommended Kimkim to family and friends planning adventures around the world!

We had an amazing trip to Italy and Greece thanks to the help of KimKim and our specialist Harris.
Starting in Sorrento we had a peaceful stay right along the bay. Enjoyed wine and pizza and the local beaches.
Next we traveled to Athens where we had an amazing staying in Plaka District. We then finished the trip in Santorini where we enjoyed days by the pool and amazing Greek cuisine.
I would recommend KimKim to anyone looking to travel abroad and see the world in more detail! read more

Amazing! It was our first time going with kimkim… was a little nervous, having never used a travel consultant online to do our bookings before. But every little detail was well thought out and paced out. We had a great balance of activity and relaxation. Norway is spectacular… Flam is a must see.
I would totally recommend KimKim… thanks so much Julia for planning the perfect holiday.

Tomaz worked tirelessly to organize our trip the way we wanted and Grand Cuvee Tours managed it. Given the complexity of the trip for 3 countries over more than 2 weeks there were a few snafus which were well managed by the GCT team, but in all everything went extremely well. Italy was awesome and some of the hotels we stayed at were fantastic. In particular, the guide we had at the Uffizi gallery was very helpful and knowledgeable and the lady who guided us around Salzburg easily adapted to... read more
Greece - City, Mountains and Sea
Sep 9 - Sep 26, 2022
Greece was so amazing that I really do not know where to begin. First, KimKim and Chris were incredible. Chris took the time to talk to me and my wife and really try to understand the type of trip we were after - we wanted to explore on our own, sail on a small boat and see all the sights but not be with a big group.
He put together an 18 day extravaganza that included local guides in Athens (Thanks Apollo !), a car rental with us driving around Greece to Delphi, Olympia, Nafplio and all... read more

Kimkim and Trail Travel Planned a Great Trip!
Sep 17 - Sep 23, 2022
We were late getting started on planning our trip to Turkey, but Berat stepped right up and got us all squared away in just a few days. We had some ideas about what we wanted to see and she put them together in an itinerary that made sense, with a good balance of travel and sight seeing each day. We had been warned away from Troy, but our guide, Erdem Keseli, did a great job of interpreting the site and the museum, as he did for the other sights we visited (Gallipoli, Assos, Pergamon,... read more

The entire trip went very smoothly. Our guides and flights were on time, and our experiences were amazing. My favorite was the sunset cruise in Santorini and the all day sailing trip In Santa Maria di Leuce! I couple disappointments was where we went on the bike tout and the cooking class. Was a total different than what the agenda said. The guides were still wonderful and Chef Livio was an absolute charm. We thought we were going into he countryside but apparently the Italy organizer was... read more

He was flexible with changes in itinerary and available whenever needed. Every day was a highlight so it is impossible to choose! Kamal, our guide in Fez was a fount of history, culture, and insight. The kindness in Merzouga when I became sick was remarkable and the flexibility to stay an additional night allowed me time to recover. The... read more

They all went out of their way to ensure our trip lived up to expectations, and it certainly did. We were particularly fond of Ha Long bay & our overnight boat experience, we also loved the activities set up for us in Hanoi.
Our only negative is we would have preferred to have stayed in some more accessible locations when staying outside of the major cities (with walking access to... read more

Our trip was great. We had some luggage snags and they were so helpful and rearranged the itinerary. Our guides in each area were so good. Great English. Lots of history and interesting information shared. Taking us to great places. Navigating everything.
Karim was a fabulous driver. His English is phenomenal. He is personable and easy to be with. We really enjoyed him.
Sep 1 - Sep 15, 2022
We had a wonderful time in Morocco, and really loved the itinerary that kimkim put together for our two week tour. Soufiane, our driver, was definitely the hero of the trip. He was so friendly and accommodating, and really went out of his way to make us feel like his guests. We had excellent experiences with all of our guides: Mustapha in Chefchaouen, Hasan in Fes, Hamid in Sefrou, Said in Marrakesh, and Hussein in Ourika valley. Would definitely recommend our experience to friends and family!

Daniel was a phenomenal specialist. He went above and beyond to make our trip to Ecuador's city of Quito and the Amazon Rainforest a once-in-a-lifetime trip.

We were lucky to work with Luis to plan out 2 week, 7 city trip to Spain; including Barcelona, Sitges, Granada, Sevilla, Cordoba, Madrid and Toledo.
Luis recommended things we never would have known about, and the travel guides he prepared were SO HELPFUL.
We had two amazing tours in Granada, one of Albaizin and Sacre Monte with Marta, and one of the Alhambra and Generalife with Gabriella. These are a must, in our opinion.
In addition, we had an incredible electric bike tour of Madrid with... read more

Sep 19 - Sep 23, 2022
Nhung made many mistakes with the dates and desired activities. We told her many times we were not picking up/dropping off our 3d friend, Talya, at the airport. But Nhung messed that up so our first and fourth day activities were decreased to do the airport. We emailed her repeatedly to change it but she didn't. I feel we lost 25% of our trip potential itinerary. She also messed up the payments which I am still waiting for a refund
Our previous rep Sotiria was much more on top of things. read more

Most notably, when we had an issue with one of our visas, he stepped in to help us expedite the process and quite literally saved the whole vacation!
Some of the highlights included a vespa tour in Hanoi, a food tasting tour in Hoi... read more

Sharon, just saying thank you for the extraordinary job you did planning our 50th anniversary trip is simply not enough. You really listened. The cities, monuments, riads, and guides were exactly what we envisioned.
Most importantly our guide, Hicham, was central to our entire trip. He was always on time, prepared, kind, thoughtful, and knowledgeable.

Our guides Julian , Gilles, Sophie and Claire were fun and very knowledgeable about the places and food. We only experienced one problem on our trip.

We did appreciate the refund we received We would recommend kimkim to everyone. read more
Sep 15 - Sep 21, 2022
We have used kimkim in the past and like that it advertises specialists in the country in which you want to travel. The service provided for this trip was disappointing. Granted, we were a large group (initially 12 people), but there were many significant details that were missed creating complications and producing unneeded anxiety. The kimkim platform seemed to overly complicate communication and our travel specialist frequently did not check in on the platform for days at a time - so it... read more

I have always planned on going on my first trip to Europe since 2020. But with the pandemic, it was very difficult with planning. It wasn’t until this year, I made the final decision to go on a solo trip to Europe for the very first time. Not knowing how I would go about planning my trip, I went on the kimkim website and reached out to Chris. He has been helpful from the very beginning, and put together an amazing itinerary! I expressed that I wanted to go to Greece and Italy, and the types... read more
