Ioannis the Master Planner!
May 20 - May 26, 2023
Ioannis was an excellent resource throughout this trip. We found plenty of fun activities and places to visit in Chania and Heraklion with their help.
Every minor hiccup with quickly resolved by Ioannis for us which made everything stress free!
Thank you, Ioannis for an amazing experience and I am sure I will be using you as a resource again the next time I visit Crete and Greece! read more

May 12 - May 24, 2023
The professionalism and hospitality of all the staff from Active India Holidays, including tour guides, driver and itinerary designers are top notch and exceeded my expectations. I felt treated like royalty everyday with the utter most consideration and care. Ravi and Priya planned an unforgettable two weeks Golden Triangle - Rajasthan tour for me that allowed me to gain a deep appreciation and admiration for India's rich history and cultural contribution to our humanity! They were were also... read more
Seamless tour of Italy!
May 13 - May 21, 2023
Our trip to Italy was booked on Kimkim through Ina, who ensured that my requests were taken care of as they arised during the planning process. For the actual trip, everything was seamless - the drivers, tours, and hotel accommodations. I especially recommend checking out the Amalfi coast and Pompeii! You won’t regret the nurturing assistance of Kimkim’s booking agents. read more

Entire trip met our expectations regarding hotel quality, logistics and service by Marina and The Espiritu team.
Our issues were all with booked events.
The coordinator, Carlos, for the Alhambra tour directed us to stand alone at the wrong meeting point without asking a question. Then he failed to look for us while we stood only 15 meters away. Luckily, we found Edo in the Alhambra and had a great experience.
The flamenco show started 30 minutes before our scheduled time.
The tapas tour started 30 minutes after our scheduled time.
This was an absolutely incredible trip. Saïd and Soukina are a power team!
Apr 15 - Apr 30, 2023
This was an absolutely incredible trip. Soukina, our driver, was among the best I've ever had. She was affable, resourceful, funny, flexible, and always punctual. The trip organizer, Saïd, went above and beyond to make this a memorable trip. For example, while in Merzouga, he responded to my last-minute request to stay with a Berber nomad family that night, and somehow he was able to make it happen! He also arranged for us to stay with a lovely host family in Dades for a couple of nights. The... read more
Andrea from KimKim was better than five stars!
May 9 - May 19, 2023
Rome: 1. Our private walking tour guide was extremely knowledgeable, attentive and very flexible to our wishes. She spent extra time with us and guided us back to our hotel so we wouldn't get lost. 2. Our Colosseum and Forum Liv Tours guide was also knowledgeable, attentive and funny! The most memorable point of interest was St. Peter's Basilica. The Navona Colors hotel has a great location, wonderful staff and well appointed rooms.
Bologna: Our food tour guide was sweet and, as a... read more
Shaun & Lesley 40th Japan Trip
May 17 - May 26, 2023
Malissa did a wonderful job working with us to put together a fantastic itinerary for our ten-day trip through Japan (Tokyo > Hakone > Kyoto > Osaka). During the planning phase, she provided numerous options based on interests and budget and was quick to respond to questions. The itinerary documentation was detailed and allowed us to focus on enjoying our experiences. We had friendly and knowledgeable guides: Jared was welcoming when we arrived rather jet lagged and helped get us situated,... read more
GREAT TRIP - FABULOUS SERVICE
May 10 - May 26, 2023
I booked our trip to Croatia through KImKim, a Company that we had never used. We were assigned to Anna-Maria to arrange our trip. She worked diligently and put together a terrific itinerary (Hotels, Cars, Guides etc). We booked our trip through her. I was under the impression that we would take the trip and that was it. I was wrong. Anna-Maria was in contact with us the entire trip. Any question, problems, changes, etc. were handled efficiently with personal contact via email or text... read more

May 22 - May 25, 2023
- Our driver
- Sigiriya guided tour
- Traditional meal in Dumballa
- Tea factory tour and tasting in route to Sri Padya
- Guided sunrise hike up Sri Padya
- Free time in Galle
- Hotel Welligama
- Better communication regarding travel duration (too much time in car)
- More transparency regarding how trip fee is being used (hotels, guides, activities, food, etc.)
- Ensure drivers know best route between destinations (fewer kilometers does not always mean fastest route)
Thank you so very much for the wonderful review & comments!
Noted your points about areas to improve, appreciate it very much.
I am glad that you enjoyed the vacation in Sri Lanka & truly honored to be your local travel expert who planned your holiday.

Liz did and amazing job providing us some amazing and memorable experiences! The heli cruise heli trip to Milford Sound was incredible, as was the PurePod stay, the Akarao nature cruise (where we saw both the world's smallest penguin and the world's smallest dolpin), and the glacier boat experience at Mount Cook! read more
Dear Robert and Debbie,
I'm so glad you were able to do the Heli flight and the weather cooperated!!
It was a pleasure to help you with this trip !! If I can help in the future in anyway, I would be more than happy to do so.
All the best to both of you.
The most inclusive, an incredible trip I’ve ever had
May 16 - May 25, 2023
Rita Chaves was so knowledgeable and professional. I learned so much. I felt she was a great friend after our wonderful time with her. All the drivers were great. Special shout to Leonardo. We had an eight layover and a lot of luggage -heavy also. At one am he helped is take the bags up the street and give flights of narrow streets.
The Fada was so special and memorable.
Sofia was so flexible and accommodating. Loved her fun personality.
Mario was a great driver and fabulous... read more
Planned a Fabulous Trip to Greece!
May 16 - May 24, 2023
Kim Kim easily connected us with a local agent in Greece. With our input, Amalia planned an amazing 8 days for us in Athens, Paros and Santorini. While we would have liked to have hadthe final itinerary a little bit sooner so we could possibly make some scheduling changes, I understand they need to protect their resources so people don't cut them out and go directly to the source. Having said that, all of the excursions we did were amazing. All of our drivers showed up on time and were very... read more

May 13 - May 23, 2023
Pedro made our first trip to Portugal beyond memorable. Working with him was very easy. He was responsive and his excellent communication continued through the entire trip. His choice of experiences were perfect for our group. Tours were well rounded in variety and all guides were fantastic. Our fado dinner at Mesa do Frades felt intimate, unique, and local. It was a stand out! As was a beautifully scenic tour to the Duoro Valley. Lunch and tasting at Quinta do Pacheco was another highlight.... read more

Pedro did an amazing job
Apr 30 - May 12, 2023
Pedro did an amazing job in planning and executing our vacation details. Everything was planned and carried out as expected. We did not have to worry about anything. The choice of hotels were wonderful. The guides for the walking tours in Lisbon, Porto and Evora were so well versed and full of information. We will recommend this company to all our friends read more

Personalized service, on call while traveling.

I’m most happy to have chosen KimKim and Francesca for my first trip to Iceland. All of the accommodations were really great. It would be hard to choose one above the others. The weather was an issue and forced cancellation of a few activities but it was no problem getting a new plan and refunds for cancelled ones. The Silfra Snorkeling was amazing and such great staff, I felt totally safe the whole time (and I’m 72yrs old.) All of the food I ate while in Iceland was amazing!!!! read more
Hi Anna, it was a pleasure to help you out with your Iceland adventure! Really looking forward to work together again.
9 Days of Ancient Rome and Greece
May 13 - May 22, 2023
Just back from a 9 day walk through the history of Rome, Athens and Naxos, organized by Harris and his team. We learned so much, saw so much and did it effortlessly, thanks to the organization of Harris. It was amazing to just show up to places, have our transportation ready with friendly drivers and lovely accommodations, knowledgeable and fun private guides. Our highlight was definitely Pompeii, with a fantastic and passionate local guide. In Rome, our private guide lead us through the... read more
Thank you so much for your kind words and your valuable feedback!
I'm more than happy that the trip plan turned into a wonderful family trip, and that all of you enjoyed the tours and had a wonderful overall experience in Italy & Greece!
It was a great pleasure working with you, and I would love to work again with you in the future for another amazing experience in different destinations in Italy or Greece.
I wish you all the best,

The guides, horsemen and camp assistants were all very professional. They always had our safety and comfort in mind. I would not hesitate to recommend the Kimkim team to any travelers in Bhutan. read more
Thank you for your kind words and your patronage.
I shall be certain to share your feedback with Tek and nawang.
Take care and stay well, Team Himalayan Kingdom expedition.
Hanna did an amazing job planning our Iceland trip.
May 20 - May 25, 2023
Hanna did an amazing job planning our Icelandic trip. She asked what type of family adventure we wanted and zoned in our family activity style with insight and great suggestions, which made our trip so memorable. When we had an issue with one hotel she was responsive and quickly resolved the problem. I cannot recommend Hanna enough. Thank you Hanna.
Thank you so much for your review, Kim. I'm so glad you had an amazing time!
May 15 - May 21, 2023
The careful planning and on-the-ground attention were seamless. We didn't have to think about a thing! Our driver Samir was the best :) He was kind, calm, and attentive, and he didn't ask a million questions / play music / talk the whole time, which is the fear in these long drives. We could relax knowing he was taking us from A to B and doing so in a friendly, professional manner. We never had to worry about anything knowing he was with us. I think we wish we would have flown into Tangier,... read more
Thank you for your excellent 5-star review! We're thrilled that you enjoyed your trip and that our careful planning and attentive service made it a seamless experience for you. Your kind words about our driver Samir are greatly appreciated. We apologize for any inconvenience regarding the long drive to Chefchaouen and the clarification of the cooking class at Maison Arabe. Nonetheless, we're delighted that the trip created long-lasting memories for you. Thank you for choosing us, and we hope to serve you again in the future.
