3 cities | fjords and mountains, Norway - Aug 2 - Aug 13, 2018
Just returned from a totally epic trip to Norway, planned with great care by our awesome specialist Linda. Linda service was nothing short of perfect. She listened to what we wanted to do during our visit, understood and respected our budget and planned a trip for us that maximized our dollars and used our travel days very efficiently. Without Linda's help I am certain that we would not have been able to see so much of the country in such a smooth and logical manner and would never have... read more
One day hike, Iceland - Aug 15 - Aug 15, 2018
A fantastic day with a local guide - great hiking with some cool, secret canyons and waterfalls. Lunch was amazing. Best of all were Jon’s Saga stores and personal love for the region. More than we expected!
Adventure in costa rica, Costa Rica - Aug 3 - Aug 12, 2018
Sylvia is amazing! She is pleasant and easy to work with. We missed our flight and Sylvia rearranged pick-up and transfers from the airport with no fuss. She surprised us with a last minutes city tour of San Jose and dinner at Tiquicia Restaurant. The view of central valley from Tiquicia Restaurant was spectacular! It is truly a million-dollar view. The food was delicious and the traditional dance was fantastic.
Tabacon Resort , all I can I say is " Wow, wow, and wow... read more
A relaxed pace through cultural triangle, Sri Lanka - Aug 5 - Aug 14, 2018
My trip to Sri Lanka was a true pleasure. I wish to thank my guide, Mark, for his expert care. I felt at ease and well cared for throughout my 10 day stay.
I can't say which region was my favorite to be honest. I traveled in the North and through the cultural triangle. I loved all of it but ,Jaffna, perhaps, stole my heart. I think, because of how much the people have had to endure and have come so far in rebuilding life there.
The beauty of the island is truly amazing. I was greeted so warmly by the people there and I met some forever true friends. Lovely. Thank you.
Jordan south, Jordan - Aug 10 - Aug 13, 2018
Sharif was a real gentleman. We fell in love with him. Always on time, polite, attentive, full of useful suggestions, discreet.
He helped to make our two birthdays special.
Petra and Wadi Rum amazing. So much history. Bilal was a great story teller. Camel ride fantastic. Lying on the sand looking up at the stars beautiful. Sharif suggested snorkeling in Aqaba - just right.
Guatemala 2018, Guatemala - Aug 4 - Aug 11, 2018
Chris and team provided my family with the best vacation we have ever shared together.
This was the first trip to Guatemala for my 2 biological children, as well as the first trip to Guatemala for my youngest daughter that we adopted from Guatemala 13 years ago. It was also our first opportunity visit with Telma, a 9 yr old girl that we sponsor from Guatemala through the organization, Unbound.
When I first reached-out to Chris, I didn't know what to expect. I had very little knowledge... read more
Varied trip for a family, Nepal - Aug 5 - Aug 13, 2018
Mads was really helpful from the outset and helped me work out a fantastic itinerary for myself and my family. We thoroughly enjoyed it all from the trekking with our lovely guide chheering, the white water rafting expedition and our luxurious stay at Chitwan. Our adventure to lumbini and across the border was fun but would maybe fly from Kathmandu next time! Amanda, our contact in Kathmandu was faultless- giving us excellent recommendations for meals and providing us with a phone so we could... read more
Explore iceland in 5 days - seven optimized itineraries to help you make the most of your short trip to iceland , Iceland - Aug 8 - Aug 13, 2018
We really enjoyed the itinerary and the hotels that were selected. Would have appreciated a bit more detail and tips. For example the day trip to the waterfall, where there was no opportunity to get lunch, a note suggesting to take a picnic lunch would have been helpful. Also some detail on the timing of activities would help plan the day better - seal colony viewing duration, whale watching duration etc.
History tour wanted please, Sri Lanka - Jul 17 - Jul 20, 2018
Sajith was great with organising our Sri Lanka trip, his attention to detail was very high. Although we didn't end up going on our trip we would highly recommend using Sajith for organising a trip.
South africa self-drive, South Africa - Jul 15 - Aug 6, 2018
This is an incredible service, and I can’t express how much I appreciate being able to visit a new place — new cultures, new languages, contested histories — and feel like I left it with something more than a superficial layer of tourist-appropriate experience.
Deborah (with help from Tara - of Elgin Africa) provided us with an incredibly thoughtful and perfectly paced itinerary for our 22-day holiday. Deborah’s understanding of us — she really listened to us — and of the options before... read more
Active, Philippines - Aug 8 - Aug 12, 2018
Johnas was WONDERFUL. Thank you for a wonderful trip. Everything was handled expertly.
Roman battlefield - pharsalus, Greece - Aug 8 - Aug 9, 2018
Tasos went out of his way to accommodate my unique request. Everything went according to plan. Panagiota was a GREAT guide to Philippi. She adjusted the amount of information provided based on our level of interest and it was fantastic!!!
Norwegian highlights- bergen- the hardangerfjord- oslo, Norway - Aug 1 - Aug 7, 2018
We had a fabulous trip to Norway, orchestrated by Ingrid.
She was patient, kind, responsive and so extremely helpful!
We would definitely do this again!
Myanmar & thailand tour - 15 days, Myanmar - Jul 23 - Aug 6, 2018
What a great trip! Loved Myanmar. The first time I visited was as a backpacker in my mid 20s in 1986. That as a remarkable time to visit what was then Burma but I certainly travelled rough.
This time I requested higher end accommodation for my wife and I. Anne excelled with her selection. For instance, the Sanctum Inn and Bagan Lodge were modern suites in 5 Star accommodation. But we loved every choice she made for us, plus she saved us some money by recommending we stay at the Savoy in... read more
Costa rica, Costa Rica - Aug 1 - Aug 6, 2018
To be honest, I’d never heard of Kimkim, coast to coast adventures, or Randall. This made me a little bit wary of sending over a few thousand pounds and just assuming it would all be ok. Randall seemed very nice over email and we were keen to support local business in the country were visiting rather than some massive tour company, so we took the plunge.
I really didn’t need to worry at all.
We’ve had a stunning time in Costa Rica - truly the trip of a lifetime. Whatever words or photos... read more
Intro to chile, Chile - Jul 28 - Aug 8, 2018
For the most part, Oxana did a very good job planning and organizing out trip to Chile. We had printed our itinerary and had access to the Axios app of our daily activities. The itinerary was well organized and structured with lots of helpful information(I.e., confirmation codes, flight #s, seats, check-in and departure times, hotel names, et. al. info). The bilingual tour guides were all knowledgeable, capable, well-prepared, punctual, and professional. We were especially impressed by two... read more
First time family trip to china, China - Jul 28 - Aug 8, 2018
This was an amazing first trip to China for our family. KimKim, Max, and our local guides really took the heavy lifting and stress out of planning our family trip to a destination unfamiliar to us.
Max was quick to respond to our initial enquiry, worked closely with us to build an itinerary tailored to our interests, and stayed in touch with our guides throughout the trip. The itinerary details were clear and well thought-out. A helpful contact list gave us additional guidance on things... read more
Maya ruins, culture, beaches, Mexico - Aug 5 - Aug 11, 2018
I’m a solo traveler and I chose to get a trip in Mexico by myself. Laetitia is the girl that assisted me during the planning of the trip and we kept in touch all the time, before and during my trip. She has been really detailed in everything and she always made sure that everything was fine. Always available for every problem and doubt I had. Once there’s been a little mistake and the company after having fixed it, they made me find in the hotel a little gift from them. I really recommend... read more
Highlights of croatia: zagreb to dubrovnik - 7 days, Croatia - Jul 29 - Aug 5, 2018
We had an amazing time during our week long visit to Croatia - thanks to Ante!!
We were lucky enough to learn of KimKim and be connected with Ante during our planning process. Ante helped from pre-planning, all the details during our trip and also met us in person. He listened to our preferences and helped us design the perfect itinerary including excursions and transfers. Our trip included a walking tour, bike tour and boating day - all were coordinated with amazing guides and were the... read more
Looking to take in as much as possible during a 4-5 day visit! , Ecuador - Aug 5 - Aug 11, 2018
Linda was outstanding, she was quick at answering all my questions and made sure I was in the loop when itineraries changed.
All the guides did a wonderful job explaining Ecuador and the different locations that are popular to visit or that make Ecuador unique.
The city tour was nice, I really enjoyed the mitad del mundo museum - very informative.
Otavalo, Cotopaxi, Quilotoa, and Baños were all wonderful experiences!
I was very thankful that Linda was able to connect with my hotel and ensure that I had a to go breakfast on the days I left early. I love breakfast!!
Jomsom muktinath trek, Nepal - Jul 29 - Aug 6, 2018
My wife and I recently traveled to Nepal on our honeymoon to explore part of the mustang region. We were looking for adventure, culture and scenery. Our guide Thinley and the whole team from Responsible Treks gave us a wonderful adventure. Nepal is such a beautiful country rich in history, culture and spirit, and the mustang region was just as breathtaking as we had hoped it would be. Even with the monsoon weather providing us with a range of obstacles, the Responsible Treks team worked... read more
Planning your visit to cuba, Cuba - Aug 4 - Aug 10, 2018
Eiser was our guide and he was excellent in his knowledge of Cuba and his awareness of our needs. His driving on the trip to Trinidad was excellent and navigated the many pot holes with extreme expertise and diligence. He made the trip fantastic with his calmness and willingness to go the extra mile for whoever needed it. There was one participant who was quite difficult at times, and always late for whatever we were doing and complained about everything, but he showed great equanimity,... read more
Lima and cusco , Peru - Jul 29 - Aug 6, 2018
Everything was so awesome ..I'm so glad I met Kristy. She is did a great job:)
Lima and cusco , Peru - Jul 29 - Aug 6, 2018
Our family’s trip to Peru was amazing, and a lot of the success is owed to our specialist Kristy. She was fully involved in our trip planning and spoke with my wife multiple times to answer all of our questions and help plan out a custom package. Upon arrival, she met us at the airport and ensured that every step of the way was taken care of. While in Peru, Kristy was always just a phone call away - she went above and beyond multiple times to ensure that our trip was smooth and a success. In... read more
Tour of jordan, Jordan - Jul 23 - Aug 1, 2018
We booked a 10 day trip to Jordan as a family (2 adult children). Starting in Amman we did the standard trip - Amman, Petra, Wadi Rum, Aqaba then ending at The Dead Sea.
Lena's communication and advice was excellent. We had a driver (Mohammed) throughout which made the trip very straight forward. I don't see how you could really cover this ground in a limited amount of time without a driver. The car was very comfortable and Mohammed was efficient and punctual. We got a couple of quotes... read more
Nature at a slow pace, Slovenia - Aug 3 - Aug 10, 2018
Miha organised the trip so well to suit our style. He made it easy. Everything was organised from the printed itinerary to the mobile phone on loan! Nothing went wrong and we really enjoyed the hike.
Trip to jordan, Jordan - Jul 31 - Aug 4, 2018
Two things I have to say: thank you and amazing!
The best thing of all, the people I interacted with: Tamara, Mohammad and Tito!
I usually do my own travel planning and booking, this time I booked a last minute trip to Jordan and I am more than happy I got to be connected via kimkim to the Why Jordan Tours team, from the first moment I got contacted by Tamara I knew that all I had to do was to leave it all to the experts and begin to enjoy my trip.
Tamara was incredibly helpful, despite the... read more
Tour of ireland, Ireland - Jul 21 - Aug 2, 2018
Our trip was thoughtfully planned to provide us with the opportunity to drive to many unforgettable places and sights in Ireland.
Norway's mountains & fjords road trip - 18 days , Norway - Jul 23 - Aug 9, 2018
Our trip to Norway was great - helped in great measure by Ingrid, our travel advisor.
She helped us a lot in planning our itinerary - listened to what we were interested in and followed through with thoughtful suggestions. Once we decided on a trip plan, Ingrid made accommodation suggestions and then made the reservations. It was so helpful to have an agent from Norway who knows the country and helped us make excellent choices.
As to the trip itself, it was wonderful. The accomodations... read more
Guatemala, Guatemala - Jun 22 - Jun 24, 2018
Overall, the experience is good. The guides are knowledgeable, courteous, friendly; both the guides and drivers are very professional. However, even though this was a private tour, it still felt like we were on a tour group, albeit a very small group of two, with a preset agenda and timetable. The tour was lacking flexibility as we were dashing from one destination to another, spending too much time in a destination that we had no interest in (e.g. the jade shop demonstration or the visit... read more
Starting in liev, Ukraine - Jul 10 - Aug 8, 2018
The portion of my trip to western Ukraine was the best. The driver Yuri was extremely friendly and his company was able to plan our itinerary so we got to see everything we wanted.
Beyond the alps, Slovenia - Jul 30 - Aug 9, 2018
We spent a wonderful two weeks driving around Slovenia, seeing the sights and taking lovely day hikes. Domen and Miha both worked with us designing a unique trip. We visited both the usual tourist sights and some that were specific to our interests. They gave us gps tracks to quiet, solitary day hikes with amazing views. We do not hesitate to recommend Slotrips for a fabulous vacation.
Croatia family vacation - 15 days, Croatia - Jul 31 - Aug 9, 2018
We had a wonderful first time in Croatia. Ante was extremely helpful and professional, providing us with an excellent service. We highly recommend using kimkim! Thank you Ante :)
Nature and adventure tour, Costa Rica - Jul 26 - Aug 7, 2018
We had a truly amazing time in Costa Rica. Sylvia organised everything so well. It's hard to know what the highlights were as there was so much which was just fantastic, but here are some that stick most in our memory:
• The first very rainy boat trip through the rainforest to Laguna Lodge, with Clarence taking good care of us throughout.
• The butterfly garden at the back of the Selva Tropical restaurant
• Witnessing a giant turtle laying her eggs (so many of them)
• Mauricio the driver... read more
Trip to the faroe islands and iceland, the Faroe Islands - Aug 3 - Aug 8, 2018
Our family of four engaged Heimdal Tours to show us Mykines Island. It was an amazing experience! Our guide Tummas was extremely knowledge about the history, flora and fauna, and the people of the Faroe Islands. It was a busy day with more than one ferry to Mykines, but, even with the additional crowds, we felt like the island was ours. We would highly recommend Heimdal Tours.
Venice to athens, Croatia - Jul 30 - Aug 6, 2018
Veselka was great to work with. She listened to what I wanted and helped me plan an incredible trip. All of our hotels were in incredible locations and were in the budget that we wanted to be in. In Dubrovnik we stayed at Hotel Lapad. In Hvar we stayed in the pedestrian area in the old town at a hotel called Villa Nora. It was very charming and old. It was more like a bed and breakfast then a hotel. Every room is different, but they were all clean and very nice. In Split we were also in a... read more
Trip to nepal, Nepal - Jul 16 - Jul 30, 2018
We had a wonderful experience in Nepal, and I can't say enough great things about Chhewang and Sonam from Responsible Treks. This was our first time to Nepal, and Chhewang was extremely helpful in designing the perfect itinerary for us. He assessed our capabilities and interests, and proposed several options. He was patient and responsive with our questions and flexible to meet our needs at every step.
We trekked the remote region of Nar and Phu, and then part of the Annapurna Circuit. We... read more
Trip to iceland, Iceland - Jul 23 - Jul 31, 2018
We had a wonderful trip to North and West Iceland with our 2 year old daughter! Everything that Zeynep recommended was wonderful and completely doable with a toddler in tow. We especially loved seeing the geothermal areas in Myvatn, our awesome boat ride to see the puffins from Husavik, and the pebble beach on Snaefellsnes peninsula where a seal swam right up to us! Such a gorgeous country, and Zeynep's arrangements kept us out of the tourist crowds while still letting see so many amazing things.
Explore iceland in 5 days - seven optimized itineraries to help you make the most of your short trip to iceland , Iceland - Aug 1 - Aug 6, 2018
Thank you Zeynep and kimkim, we had the most wonderful days in Iceland!!!
Everything was so well organized and worked as swizz clock that we had to worry about nothing, just make sure we will get to next place in time.
We had asked for budget accommodation, but were amazed how great and cozy all hostels, gueshouses and hotels were - Sunna’s guesthouse in Reykjavik had the best location! Guesthouse Lambastaðir was so cozy, just like somebodys home and the late night hot tub was brilliant. Same... read more
Jordan in 7 days - amman, jerash, mt nebo, petra, wadi rum, aqaba and the dead sea, Jordan - Jul 30 - Aug 4, 2018
Everything was great, the fact that I was able to message back and forth in a "conversation" style on KimKim was very easy going and helped as I was able to request changes as they happened up to the trip.
One of the best things about my trip to Jordan when booking through Kimkim was my driver, Yahya. I wasn't sure about doing an individual trip to another country. But my driver was great company, he was a good converser.
He talked me through what to expect, how to get the most out of my... read more
Trip to slovenia, Slovenia - Jul 21 - Jul 30, 2018
Slovenia was such a memorable trip. Our Kimkim organisers planned the holiday just as we wanted it...a mixture of sightseeing and activity. The Julian Alps are a must for anyone who enjoys picturesque scenery and cycling/river activities.
Best of uruguay/chile, Chile - Jul 25 - Aug 4, 2018
I have done a good few trips and this one was definitely up there with the best. I travelled the length and breadth of Chile - which has plenty of the former and very little of the latter, so it meant a lot of flying north and south. I feel like I got a taste of the entire country, from Atacama to Patagonia. Could doubtless have spent longer at a few key places, but on the other hand, Chile is such a long way to come from the UK I felt I had to pack as much in as possible on this one trip. I... read more
9 days roundtrip oslo - bergen - trondheim , Norway - Jul 26 - Aug 3, 2018
Our wonderful trip to Norway went off without a hitch. Linda was knowledgeable, cooperative and flexible during the planning process. She was willing to Skype with us as well as communicate by E-mail. All the arrangements she made -- hotels, cruise ship, and other transport tickets -- were fine. She did as she was asked when we wanted to be near an airport or a train station. She was also very pleasant personally.
The only thing that might have been better is that a couple of the rooms... read more
Ultimate guide to machu picchu: everything you need to know, Peru - Jul 25 - Jul 28, 2018
The whole trip was amazing. Alexandra and Julio were very knowledgeable guides and both went out of their way to make our trip as pleasant and fun as possible. Machu Picchu was amazing and our guide made sure we got the best shots which is priceless taking into account how packed it was. Clara was super helpful and always ready to answer any questions and accommodate changes in our schedule. Thank you guys for making our trip to Peru such a memorable and special experience!!
Colombia birding tour excluding santa marta, Colombia - Jul 15 - Jul 30, 2018
The trip was fabulous. the guide (Alejandro Pinto) was superb. He has excellent knowledge of the local birds and was happy and helpful throughout despite being ill. The most memorable part was staying in Tatama. An excellent place. Good food and great hospitality.
Nepal's main trekking regions, Nepal - Jul 21 - Jul 29, 2018
Loved the trek so much! Didn’t really think about much before I go. Alex and Erin are very experienced in terms of giving good advice on the drier route during monsoon season and taking care of my arrival. Ngawang is such a experienced guide and he was very helpful along the trek. Food is very good and satisfying during the trip too ;)
Group departure - birdwatching in colombia's andean ranges & magdalena valley - 16 days, Colombia - Jul 14 - Jul 30, 2018
The Colombian Project’s Eastern, Central, and Western Andean Ranges and Valleys 16-day tour exceeded my expectations! We visited a variety of birding areas, so the tour was a great introduction and sampling of the birds and birding in Colombia. Our bird guide, Alejandro, was energetic, enthusiastic, and located many hard to find birds.
I enjoyed dining at a variety of establishments, many of which included local fare, and staying in a variety of accommodation types, all of which were... read more
1 day | oslo with a local specialist | , Norway - Aug 2 - Aug 3, 2018
My Oslo tour experience was a great one. Thank you very much Ingrid for booking this at such short notice. I really enjoyed the long walk along the river because it was beautiful and quiet especially in the middle of a very busy city.
My guide, Stig, was very helpful in explaining the history behind the tiger for example close to the train station. Stig also shared facts about other things we saw and was of tremendous help in showing us around other places we needed to visit before we left for home. You guys are the best! Thank you:)
the fjords and glacier hiking | bergen | stavanger | oslo - 7 days , Norway - Jul 22 - Jul 28, 2018
All of Ingrid's recommendations were terrific. We had a great experience! She even went above and beyond to give us directions at each site. The glacier hike at Folgefonna was amazing! But the highlight of our trip was a sunrise hike to Priekestolen. Driving around on our own was a great way to explore and see the "real" countryside... it's beautiful!
Thank you Ingrid!
Europe 2018, Slovenia - Jun 30 - Jul 9, 2018
My Trip to Slovenia started off with a request to “Solo hike through the alps, away from crowds and tourists". Miha contacted me and wanted to understand what I had in mind. Living in Silicon Valley and working in tech, my desire was to reconnect with nature and pursue a solo-hike through the Alps. I had envisioned doing this in Austria just based on its familiarity with my past travels.
As Miha and I exchanged messages, Miha who converted my desires into a well defined route to... read more
Oslo to bergen fjord adventure - 5 days, Norway - Jul 23 - Jul 28, 2018
It was pretty good but I had to check some details. Flemmet at Bergen did a good job too. We had a good time in Norway over all. Thank you for the arrangement.
Trip to peru for family with two older teenagers, Peru - Jul 22 - Aug 2, 2018
Steve and Katy and the Aspiring Adventures team did a great job. They helped plan and set up a highly custom tour of Peru for us and really dealt with a lot of added complexity and changes when the weather impacted the original trek we had planned; and then when one of us had some health issues and had to change plans. Really appreciated their hard work and expertise. Very happy with the trip.
Our guides arranged by Aspiring Adventures (Arturo in Lima, Justino in Sacred Valley/Trek/Machu... read more
Balthali village trek via namo buddha and panauti, Nepal - May 26 - Jun 3, 2018
We are very grateful to Erin and the kimkim team for putting together a fantastic and memorable holiday this May. Our decision to go to Nepal was pretty last minute and not exactly at the best time of year to visit, but with Erin's guidance we were able to figure out an itinerary with all of the experiences we were looking for, while maximizing the opportunities for good weather and clear skies/views. Our trip included a four-day trek from Jomsom - with an incredibly memorable flight to... read more
Jordan in 5 days: amman, jerash, mount nebo, petra, wadi rum, and the dead sea, Jordan - Jul 22 - Jul 27, 2018
The driver was great, very thoughtful and attentive. Not always punctual at the start of the day, did give us some notice. Throughout the day, perfectly fine. Bilal the day tour guide was very knowledgeable. We saw petra through his enchanting descriptions and with great detail. LENA Was amazing, always there to respond and answer our questions, almost immediately. Seamless travel tailor made.
THANK YOU 😁
Quiglayshan vacation, Fiji - Jul 13 - Jul 27, 2018
Wonderfully planned and stress-free trip! Every connection was seemless and timely. Ben was amazing keeping in touch during one unexpected change. We especially liked our quad bike adventure & guide, diving at Kuata with Brad, and with Semi and Epi at barefoot manta. Saki was an amazing host at manta.
When we were ready to leave manta the money hadn’t been paid by Kimkim, but the manager Lauren said, “no worries... they always pay. We’lol sort it out” and they let us leave without $$ in... read more
Soaking up some rural culture without breaking our necks!, Japan - Jul 27 - Aug 2, 2018
Fantastic trip and organisation ran like clockwork... the trains.. the buses...the timetable and so on. No corners were cut, as is often the case. Each ryokan visited over-delivered. This trip allowed us to get below the surface of Japan's big cities and let us experience the real Honshu. Simply fantastic.
Trip to greece, Greece - Jul 6 - Jul 17, 2018
This trip was above and beyond what I expected. Tasos completely outdid himself in creating an unforgettable tour of Greece. All of the tours I went on were informative and unique. I especially enjoyed Naxos island, from the beaches to the local food it was paradise. My tour guide on Naxos was also very friendly and made me feel like I was being shown around by an old friend, rather than a tour guide. Overall the trip was excellent, all of my accommodations were top notch, and my experience was nothing short of amazing.
Trip to nepal, Nepal - Jul 25 - Aug 1, 2018
My guide was very friendly and helpful for my trekking. He organized well and take care of me well too as we travel together. Erin helped me a lot by providing some information about this whole trip as this is my time to come trekking in Nepal. Everything was excellent and the one thing I was impressed was to see the local people in Langtang who work hard to rebuild their villages destroyed by the earthquake in 2015.
Exploring bergen and tromsø, Norway - Jul 26 - Jul 27, 2018
Our guides in both Bergen & Tromso were excellent!
When we arrived into Bergen off our cruise ship Vilde was there with a huge smile and waving! She called up Ben who was waiting with the van and our luggage was taken care of with out any fuss.
Our walking tour was just right... We saw so much but at a leisurely pace. Enjoyed sharing the lovely City with a local.
Our guide arrived at our hotel in Tromso (sorry I cannot find the notes with her name ) and gave us an excellent over view of... read more
High lights of sri lanka, Sri Lanka - Jul 20 - Jul 26, 2018
La was a very attentive guide and good driver. He ensured that we understood the schedule on a day to day basis to enable a smooth routine.
Our schedule was interesting with a good variety of sightseeing and physical activity.
Trip to iceland, Iceland - Jul 23 - Jul 30, 2018
We had an excellent time in Iceland and particulary liked the scheduled activities (Glacier walk and Iceberg lagoon boat ride). We also very much enjoyed our overnight on Westman Is. On the south coast we loved the major waterfalls-Seljalandsfoos, Skogarfoss and Gullfoss-, the black beaches-Dyrholaey & Reynisfjara . Also the wildness and vastness of the Snaefellsne was a highlights.
The amount of dramatic and beautiful scenery was unlimited and endless in Iceland.
Preeti made several... read more
Costa rica national parks adventure - 14 days, Costa Rica - Jul 1 - Jul 18, 2018
We had a wonderful 18 day vacation thanks to John and his great organization of our trip. This was our first visit to Costa Rica and we experienced a bit of everything - diving, visiting rainforest parks, zipline, white water rafting, horse back riding. Communication with John was very fast and efficient--both when planning the trip as well as throughout our itinerary. He booked for us places that matched very well our travelling & vacation style. I would highly recommend using the services of his company when planning Costa Rica vacation.
Guatemala vulcano trip, Guatemala - Jul 27 - Jul 30, 2018
Chris and his colleagues did a great job planning our vacation in Guatemala and we had an excellent time. The visit to Pacaya Vulcano followed by the spa experience was a treat for the entire family. The white water rafting day was fun and we were happy to hear about the noble mission of Rios Guatemala (the rafting company) which is a non-profit aiming to use the money raised from organizing adventure trips to cleanup the rivers in Guatemala and educate the local communities how important... read more
Iceland, Iceland - Jul 20 - Jul 25, 2018
The Westfjords were recommended first by Preeti and this was a highlight of the trip. Halldor took over after the initial contact.
Our main complaint is the vehicle. We were assigned a Renault delivery truck that had been converted to carry passengers. We experienced the following problems. The seats were to close together, the van was noisy, but worst of all, the leaf spring suspension made the vehicle very uncomfortable to ride in not only on some of the rough backcountry roads, but even on the well paved roads.
Trip to croatia, Croatia - Jul 15 - Jul 27, 2018
Kimkim is a very convenient service, and I am beyond thrilled with the local guide they connected us with in Croatia. Robi of Soul of Croatia (aka ACDC) helped us plan the perfect honeymoon! He worked closely with me prior to the trip to make sure we got everything we wanted out of our trip. He is attentive, responsive, considerate, detail oriented, friendly, professional, and makes amazing recommendations! While we were on the ground, we did tours with his colleague Goran who was also... read more
Colombia birding tour excluding santa marta, Colombia - Jul 15 - Jul 30, 2018
Overall a great experience with very sociable and helpful guide, Aljandro really knows his birds.
I would have preferred to see more owls, nightjars and raptors but the forrest birds made for a superb trip.
Tx again KimKim
Highlights of jordan: 6 days, Jordan - Jul 22 - Jul 27, 2018
I enjoyed the private Jordan tour and all Tamara’s hard work putting it together at the last minute. Her flexibility and helpfulness along the way were most important, answering my numerous questions, and ensuring I had non-smoking hotel rooms and a driver I could speak to.
The disappointments were mostly due to a lack of research on my part and even so we’re far outweighed by the positives. I would and will recommend your agency, driver Ala’a (the very cool, smart Aloosh), the Ramada Dead... read more
Day trip in crete from chania, Greece - Jul 23 - Jul 23, 2018
Yiannis was an excellent and knowledgeable guide. On our full day tour of Cretian villages. We enjoyed the history & culture museum, cheese factory, bakery, restaurant and distillery tours. In each location we met the proud and passionate business owners who showed us Cretian hospitality. Yiannis was the best guide! Lunch was delicious as well.

Wonderful trip, Ingrid was fantastic with all details, hotels, and guiding us to make a schedule that made sense for our various driving trips. Highlights were definitely the driving trips to Geiranger - Trollstigen and the Gamle - Strynefjellsevegen roads.
Highlights of mandalay and bagan - 5 days, Myanmar - Jul 16 - Jul 21, 2018
Our guide in Mandalay, Thwe Thwe, was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about her country's history and culture. We really appreciated the opportunity to learn more about Myanmar through a local guide. We liked visiting a Buddhist monastery and sharing a meal with a family. We also liked seeing a small village that produced palm oil and learning about their way of life. ToeHlaing was our guide in Bagan and he was very nice. Our most memorable part of Bagan will always be renting... read more

Good choices for veggie food.
norwegian fjord road trip: oslo | bergen to ålesund - 8 days, Norway - Jul 21 - Jul 28, 2018
Ingrid did a phenomenal job helping to plan and book our trip. Even when we changed our plans multiple times, she was able to quickly adapt to our changes and come up with constructive solutions.
She knows her country very well, so was able to advise us on the best travel plans, since we were traveling with a child and elderly parents.
Iceland in july , Iceland - Jul 6 - Jul 13, 2018
Our trip to Iceland was amazing! We were very pleased with the sites and recommendations made by Preeti and kimkim - so much so that we want to visit again - and soon.
Things that stood out:
While we enjoyed the entire trip, the following stood out as truly exceptional experiences: the south coast, Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon, the glacier hike, the fjords on the east coast (Hotel Bjarg was charming!), Arnarstapi hotel and the surrounding area, Skaftafell national park, Kirkjufell mountain,... read more
Southern peru adventure, Peru - Jul 14 - Jul 24, 2018
Or southern Peru trip was wonderful. The petroglyph field of Toro Muerto was amazing and the weather for the trip could not have been better. Our favorite places were the area surrounding Colca canyon (such as Sumbay Caves, Mollenpunko Caves, the viewpoint of the volcanoes, the reserve with the wild vicuñas and all the wildlife, including the wild flamingos) and the canyon itself with the Andean condors. Another favorite was Puerto Inca, staying at the hotel with the private beach... read more
Romania, Romania - Jul 17 - Jul 21, 2018
Raluca was fantastic! She met us at the hotel and made sure we understood the route and itinerary as well as arranged for car pick up at the hotel. She was also easily contactable the we wanted to make some minor adjustments to the program we had arranged. Would highly recommend her as a tour organiser.
We mainly stayed in a B&B in a small village in the Carpathian Alps (Maluga). The hosts were friendly, helpful and efficient with ample breakfast and dinner provided as well as opportunity to... read more
Jordan in 5 days: amman, jerash, mount nebo, petra, wadi rum, and the dead sea, Jordan - Jul 22 - Jul 27, 2018
We had a great time in Jordan. Lena was very thorough and helpful both prior to the trip and during the trip. She was quick to respond and deal with queries and issues. She made the whole experience seamless. Yahya was a thoughtful and knowledgeable driver whose local knowledge helped us experience and appreciate the history of the area. Petra was unbelievable. Beyond what we were expecting. Bilal was a very knowledgeable Petra guide who has endless amounts of information about the area. We... read more
Wildlife safari, Malaysia - Jul 15 - Jul 26, 2018
An unbelievable trip of a lifetime. Through Kimkim, Sticky Rice we’re able to put together a truly unique experience. Although some details weren’t exactly clear before travelling (some confusion over one accommodation) when I arrived the whole trip ran like clockwork. I can’t recommend Sticky Rice and each of their staff more, and without KimKim I wouldn’t have found them.
A few days in jordan, Jordan - Jul 5 - Jul 9, 2018
It was incredibly helpful to have kimkim to arrange this trip. It was in between heavy work travel and I needed something to do on personal time, but I did not have the bandwidth to arrange such a complicated trip by myself. Having an English-speaking driver as well as guides at Petra and Wadi Rum was enormously helpful. They were all flexible and resourceful. I was also pleased about how easy it was to customize elements of my trip, particularly choosing and using miles to book... read more

Lencois maranhenses trip, Brazil - Jul 14 - Jul 18, 2018
Marco was great helping us plan this trip. He did not miss any detail and was able to answer all the questions we had. Our guide Felipe from Nattrip was wonderful. He was with us from beginning to end of the trip. Since we do not speak Portuguese, he translated everything to us. Seems to enjoy what he does. The few times he didn't have the answer to one of the many questions we had he did not hesitate to find the answer.
Lençóis Maranhenses is an amazing place, we are so glad we were able... read more
Peru sabbatical, Peru - Jul 2 - Jul 16, 2018
We just took three teenage boys on an adventure in Peru. We used KimKim to start the trip and Quechua Treks. I can not express what an amazing trip this was. James and Haley were amazing at changing details and getting the trip just right, and Quechua Treks were the best. From hotels, to amazing food, great adventures, and the best guides we have had on any trip. They were also extremely accommodating when we had to make a change mid trip. This was such an amazing company. We could not have done what we did without them. Thank you for making such an amazing memory for our family.
Slovenia/croatia , Croatia - Jul 9 - Jul 20, 2018
Working with Miha and the Kim Kim team was a seamless experience from start to finish. I would highly recommend this company and will be using them in the future.
Thanks Kim Kim

Colombia's coffee region, Colombia - Jul 13 - Jul 15, 2018
Lisa from Adventure Colombia was fantastic as our travel coordinator and advisor to the coffee region of Colombia.

Lisa had made reservations for us at the best hotel in right in the heart of the town. We were met by David our tour guide the next morning for a fantastic day of hiking in the Cocora Valley and touring OcaSa Coffee Farm. David has fantastic knowledge of the... read more
