Wales and stonehenge / london, Wales - Jun 8 - Jun 10, 2019
We had a great time in Wales and the English countryside! Thank you to our local specialist, Daniel, who provided five-star service! (Excellent communication, useful advice, super responsive and paid attention to our trip details). We had an unexpected missed flight connection, and he jumped in to adjust our itinerary. We were truly in the hands of a professional! The local tours he confirmed were inspiring and personalized to my family. The guides adapted to what we liked and adjusted... read more
Italy, Italy - Jun 15 - Jun 21, 2019
The planning portion with Edmondo and Valentina were great and a huge relief. They worked very hard and efficiently to answer my questions and address my needs. It was nice to have the trains all booked ahead of time. We weren't too excited about our hotel choices, we felt as though they weren't really 4 stars, and the hotel in Florence was out of the way.
During the actual trip, we hit a few snags and we think it may be a miscommunication between KimKim and the tour groups chosen.

Sailing in croatia: everything you need to know, Croatia - Jun 14 - Jun 19, 2019
Our trip sailing the islands of Dalmatia was awesome! Veselka took care to respond to all of our requests on details. The master stroke was Dubravko--the owner of the 43 foot sailboat that we made home for 5 nights. He treated us as family. We loved hearing the stories and history of Vis, Brac and Hvar. He continuously showed us the places to see "off the beaten path" as well as letting us see the well-known places. Loved Stari Grad--they were having an evening of traditional dance and... read more
Cambodia trip, Cambodia - Jun 16 - Jun 22, 2019
Steve and his team took such great care of us throughout the trip! Our two guides, Pich and Dy, were wonderful as they helped navigate us around Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. Not only did they show us the sites but they were helpful in recommending places to visit as well. The itinerary crafted by Steve was well thought out and was very accommodating to my family since we could only walk a few miles per day. I highly recommend using this agency for any future Cambodia travels!
Spain 2019, Spain - Jun 14 - Jun 22, 2019
Sam was fantastic. His communication was superb, he listened to our requests well and provided excellent experiences coordinated by reliable, on-time, friendly, competent and helpful drivers and guides. He made us reservations at restaurants with unbelievable vistas - we couldn't believe our views in Granada and in Ronda - once-in-a-lifetime dining! Our guide in Seville was our favorite - Delia was kind, helpful, friendly, engaging and professional. The bike ride she took us on was... read more
Trip to greece, Greece - Jun 11 - Jun 22, 2019
It was a fantastic trip for our family. Greece was beautiful and the people we met were all so wonderful. All transfers were smooth except the ferries. The assigned seats on our tickets didn't work and we got bumped to a different ferry, which was confusing, but all in all we made it to Santorini and Crete. The guides, and I wish i could remember all of their names, were so all wonderful. Especially for our tour in Athens (Maria??), Delphi (Kristoff??), Akrotiri, Heraklion (George) and... read more
Dalmatian coast self-drive tour - 12 days, Croatia - Jun 7 - Jun 18, 2019
This was an amazing trip. Our itinerary was great with enough time to really get a feel for each place. Our lodgings were great, and all were located close to all major attractions. We spent time in Dubrovnik, Hvar, Split, Zadar, Plitvice Lakes, and Zagreb. All were great. Our personalized tours in Split with Nives and in Zagreb with Vlatka were fantastic and really informative. Our lodging in Hvar was especially great. Our host, Mila, was so welcoming. She invited us in to her... read more
Places most travelers miss (but shouldn't) in india, India - May 29 - Jun 19, 2019
We’ve just finished our Indian Odyssey, all superbly organised by Priya from kimkim. Three perfectly coordinated weeks of travel adventure & Priya was with us all the way. It felt like she was constantly in the background ensuring everything ran smoothly, that we were happy & liaising with our driver & hotels to ensure we had the best of times. Priya put together a fantastic mix of travel, adventure, activities, & relaxation using a mix of hotels; some super luxury, some more basic, some... read more
Group departure - best walks in slovenia - 8 days, Slovenia - Jun 16 - Jun 23, 2019
Couldn't ask for some one more prompt in his response like Miha, the travel specialist. Kudos to Primoz, my guide, for his patience with a level-zero noob like me from the city. Loads of gratitude to my warm hearted travel companions from Spain.
Slovenia is an amazing travel destination with so much to offer - spectacular natural beauty, hospitable locals, delightful experiences and awesome food. I will remember this vacation for a long time.
Hike & bike in slovenia, Slovenia - Jun 9 - Jun 22, 2019
We just returned from a fabulous Slovenia holiday with our itinerary designed by Miha at Slo trips. Everything went like clock work from the moment we arrived in Venice. All our transports were courteous and timely. All our accommodations were clean and lovely. The huts and hotels all had been informed of our arrival and we had no surprises. The restaurants and activities that were recommended by Slotrips were phenomenal. Our guide Aljaz was the absolute best!! He was knowledgeable,... read more

Moroccan towns & imperial cities - 5 days, Morocco - Jun 8 - Jun 16, 2019
I am one of the kimkim staff based in Lima, Peru and just recently got back from a mother/daughter trip to Morocco organized by Brahim and his team and it was amazing! Everything was carefully coordinated by Brahim, just how we wanted. He was always tentative to our needs before, during, and even after our trip was done. He even surprised my mom with a birthday cake on her birthday. He was great! We also had a private driver that we loved, he took us from one region to the next, his name was... read more
Trip to albania, Albania - Jun 4 - Jun 13, 2019
I really don’t know where to start. My trip to Albania so exceeded my expectations and I think a lot of that is owed to Ed Reeves who listened to me about what I was looking for in my trip and planned it for me perfectly! Also, he was always very quick to respond to my emails with all my many questions. Then there were our two guides/drivers, Henri Manushi and Elton (I forget his last name )who were absolutely incredible. The 10-day trip that Ed planned was in Southern Albania and it... read more
Slovenia self guided walking tour, Slovenia - Jun 12 - Jun 23, 2019
Overall this was a great concept and great trip. Gorgeous scenery, perfect accommodation, attention to detailing and availability by kim Kim and slotrips was perfect. We would recommend this trip. As we were on t he “non-guided” trip some of the trails are not marked, so stay on the blue line on phone given you. We would also advice asking locals before you get on trail as they know where the trails are and alternates. Especially after severe weather, as we experienced. A couple of our... read more
Greek islands, Greece - May 25 - Jun 3, 2019
Christos was very helpful with the planning of our trip to Greece. He was prompt with his responses and he listened and adjusted the itinerary according to our needs and requests. Everything went exactly as scheduled and when we had an issue with one of the excursions, he was understanding and did his best to handle things expeditiously. We visited Athens, Aegina, Hydra and Spetses. We thoroughly enjoyed each place, but the Hotel Rastoni in Aegina was especially beautiful. I would not hesitate to use kimkim again!
Spencer's bar mitzvah trip, France - Jun 13 - Jun 23, 2019
Overall, we had a wonderful trip. In general, the excursions Stephen planned and booked for us were a big hit all the way around. A couple didn't quite make the grade, and I'll mention below specific thoughts on some of the elements of the trip.
The hotel in Paris was not up to the standards it should be to be rated 3 stars. I would not recommend it to anyone. The first room they gave us was ridiculously small for 3 people. The lamp shade was torn, the bathroom sink fixture was broken and the... read more
Active athens & the cyclades - 7 days, Greece - Jun 15 - Jun 22, 2019
Our tour consisted of Athens, Mykonos, and Santorini. Harris and the rest of the Kimkim team was very responsive in answering our questions as we built our itinerary. The only thing we didn't really get any value out of was the visit to the farm, prior to the delicious home-cooked meal that the cooking class made. We also didn't agree that the caged rabbits should be picked up by their ears, which the tour guide assured us was okay. We also didn't like seeing that the eight rabbits were... read more
Hike & bike in slovenia, Slovenia - Jun 9 - Jun 22, 2019
What an amazing trip! A beautiful country with friendly interesting people and the perfect itinerary. It’s hard to express how impressed I was at every step of the way with the planning and organization that Miha, his team at Slotrips, and our guide, Aljaž, delivered. Bravo guys!!!
From the outset, the organization of the itinerary, with the explanations, and various options presented on the Kim Kim App let me know that I was in for a exciting experience. The group communication,... read more
8-day ring road itinerary: explore iceland’s top places along its most famous road, Iceland - Jun 5 - Jun 13, 2019
I wanted to take my son on a trip for graduation from Medical School. We decided on Iceland a few weeks before we went. I told Preeti what we wanted to do in Iceland for 7 days and she made it happen! The trip was great...a perfect mix of hiking, excursions and driving! Our last hike to Glymur Falls was especially memorable/challenging for me but after I crossed the log bridge, waded across the top of the falls, hiked straight down the rocky trail and lived to tell you that it was worth it... read more
Norway's ultimate fjord adventure - 7 days , Norway - Jun 17 - Jun 23, 2019
My adult daughter and I just returned from a seven day Norway Fjord and Viking Adventure (June 17 through June 23, 2019) and could not have been more satisfied with our journey that was handcrafted for our special interests by Linda.

Trip to peru, Peru - Jun 6 - Jun 22, 2019
Kimkim did a great job organizing an amazing Peru experience for my family of five and our extended family. We had children ranging from age 4 to 14 and they all had a great time seeing the classic Costa, Sierra, y Selva of Peru. All of our guides were knowledgeable and helpful. Alejandra in the Andean portion and Oscar in the Amazonian portion were especially fantastic! We had numerous family members joining and leaving at different times and the organizational team at Kimkim didn't miss... read more
Best of the dalmatian coast - 8 days, Croatia - Jun 5 - Jun 15, 2019
I recently had a 10 day adventure w a culinary flair trip in Croatia w 1 day in Bled, Slovenia. Our guide, Robert (Robi) Pincevic was awesome. I gave him a list of activities I wanted to do, ( hiking, biking, kayaking) , places I had to see like Plitvice NP and walk the walls in Dubrovnik. He sent a sample itenerary that seemed to have read my mind. A couple tweaks and the trip was a go. We( group of 4) started in Dubrovnik and ended in Zagreb. Lodging was mostly family run B and B's. 1st... read more
Barcelona 2019, Spain - Jun 12 - Jun 19, 2019
Our trip was to Barcelona and the Coasta Brava (staying in Calella de Palafrugell).
James planned a great itinerary for us! He asked the right questions to learn what we would enjoy and made great suggestions. Our favorite parts of the trip were things that we wouldn’t have done without his help in planning. (The more forgettable parts were the “must dos” that I found on lists and asked him to include!). In fact, it was James who suggested visiting the Coasta Brava and it was the perfect... read more

Karim, the driver is a thoughtful young man, who took really good care of us and answered all our questions. He is a really good driver.

Ultimate guide to visiting petra - jordan's ancient city, Jordan - Jun 12 - Jun 18, 2019
I don’t even know where to begin. Everything about our experience was fantastic. Our friend was originally visiting Jordan solo when my husband and I decided to tag along. Carmen was so accommodating in switching everything from a single person itinerary to a party of three. Any questions I ever had were answered very quickly.
Our itinerary was well laid out allowing us amble time at each location. We had a rather short trip and while we did move a lot to fit everything in, it never felt... read more
Adventure food relax, Greece - May 23 - Jun 10, 2019
Overall our trip to Greece was wonderful! Dimitris was very responsive during our planning phase and while we were there. He put together a good itinerary that included accommodations, travel to/from islands, tours based on what we like, car rental and a driver to pick us up during our travels. (The driver, Stavos made our trip particularly enjoyable as he drove us to various sites as part of our journey. He was very knowledgeable and so kind.) Dimitris recommended a smaller less inhabited... read more

supportive and quick to assist us with minor problems. Dubrovnik was great. Hear was wonderful!
Mila Krcevinac was outstanding and made us feel like her family treating us to wine and food and discussions. Her accommodations were super and we didn't want to leave.

Trip to greece, Greece - Jun 4 - Jun 17, 2019
We enjoyed every place we visited in Greece for different reasons. We experienced beauty, history and culture. Most of our guides were excellent, but I did not write down their names so I can’t give specific input on certain ones. The one at Delphi seemed to be in a hurry so we felt a little rushed there. The experience our last night at the fish restaurant was especially nice. The people connected with the the farm tour and meal were very gracious and made a lasting impression. The... read more
Nature and culture in romania: 15 days, Romania - Jun 4 - Jun 18, 2019
We enjoyed a wonderful Romanian experience thanks to Raluca’s excellent planning and organisational skills.

We enjoyed the variety in our itinerary which included a visit to the Bear sanctuary, visits to beautiful Medieval towns and castles and a steam train ride through the scenic Vaser valley. Our Romanian experience has left us... read more

Trip to costa rica, Costa Rica - Jun 10 - Jun 16, 2019
Carlos arranged an amazing trip for my family that captured all the best things about travel: opening hearts and minds, meeting new people and some great fun! I'd say that the trip included something for everyone, but it actually included everything for everyone. We all - myself, my wife and my 10 and 8 year old kids - loved rafting on the Balsa with Carlos T., a chocolate tour near Arenal with Katherine and surfing (or trying to, anyway) on Playa Blanca with Walter and Niels. Along the way... read more
Trip to lithuania, Lithuania - Jun 5 - Jun 11, 2019
My cousin and I had a great experience in Lithuania! Our tour guide Minda was fantastic and made the trip a special experience for us. We called him our Guardian Angel. As we drove or walked he gave us such great historical and cultural information just as we wanted. He felt like a friend or relative and was so comfortable to spend time with. We highly recommend him.
Leva did a great job helping us with our itinerary. I told her some places we wanted to go and the types of experiences we... read more

2-week ring road self-drive itinerary: highlights of iceland and the remote westfjords, Iceland - May 28 - Jun 13, 2019
There are so many wonderful places to visit in Iceland, but to do it justice you need time. We had 17 days and it was hectic. Course, we didn't want to miss anything. Caroline certainly put a great itinerary together for us.
One of the regions I thought was exceptional was the Western Fjords, but everything was memorable. The northern regions of Akureyri and Lake Myvatn were also well catered.
We met people from all over the world and shared stories and experiences, and you always felt... read more

Morocco with camel in desserts, Morocco - Jun 5 - Jun 10, 2019
Brahim was very helpful and patient in organizing our trip! He went above and beyond in picking the kindest and most knowledgable guides. The driving agency was top notch, as was every experience we had through Brahim planning. I would love to repeat my trip and would not hesitate to recommend Brahim and the Kimkim team to anyone!!!
Suzannes holiday, Greece - Jun 1 - Jun 16, 2019
I found Kimkim on the internt when i was looking at going to Greece for a holiday.
I dealt with Chris and he listened to what i wanted to visit and as a woman travelling on her own, safety was too of this list.
Not only did Chris put together a fantastic itinery he sent draft copy to me first to peruse, along with some excellent comments on due to his knowledge of the area.
From start to finish everything rang like clockwork, the best was having someone there to pick me up at airport or... read more
3 days in beijing , China - Jun 5 - Jun 10, 2019

5* highly recommend!
Trip to iceland, Iceland - Jun 5 - Jun 12, 2019
After years of doing my travel arrangements all on my own, I decided to trust a travel agent again, for a trip to Iceland that I was organizing as a birthday gift to my husband and had to be just perfect in every way.
Entrusting Kimkim and their local specialist Preeti was the best decision I ever made! Massive time saver, not a single problem or hiccup, and all the choices they made - bookings, itinerary, recommendations, - everything was perfectly tailored to my requirements, individual... read more
Trip to greece, Greece - May 29 - Jun 6, 2019
Our trip to Greece exceeded my expectations. From the first interactions with kimkim I was very pleased as I was having difficulty finding a good balance between relaxation, luxury and adventure from one source. The initial survey made me feel I finally found a source that understood that there was more than a single goal in vacation planning. With limited time available, Dimitris with Personality Journeys was able to fit all three goals into a 9-day tip with a one-month lead time. With... read more
Ireland 2019, Ireland - Jun 1 - Jun 9, 2019
Dean was great to work with and it was nice to have things set up and prepaid along the way (car, B&Bs, etc). Also good suggestions on places to stop, sites to see. One place not to miss is Skellig Michael, especially on a clear day, but reserve well ahead!
Trip to costa rica, Costa Rica - May 18 - May 25, 2019
Olman was amazing responding to all my queries in a timely manner and changing things in the itinerary based on my daughter’s animal and wildlife requirements!
Our trip, while only 7 days, incorporated so many trips and places. We had an absolutely amazing time and pretty much saw most of the country’s animals in their natural habitats.
Absolutely stunning country and Olman’s help definitely helped us to make the most of our limited time there.
Hazel trip 2019, Ireland - Jun 7 - Jun 14, 2019
My granddaughter and I had a wonderful trip!
Petrina arranged everything beautifully and was responsive to all my questions and doubts.
My only complaint was the weather. I doubt she could do anything about it, though.
Ireland is beautiful. The people, the scenery and the food were lovely.
Thank you for all your help.
Trip to greece, Greece - May 31 - Jun 12, 2019
We booked a vacation that included me, my husband and our adult children and children in law. Tasos made it all so easy. We arrived and departed at different times. Pickups and drop offs were perfectly executed.
Tasos's recommendations were excellent. We had a wonderful combination of historical exploration, guided cultural experiences, beach days and time to explore on our own.
Highlights included: welcome dinner at Zillers, our guides in Athens, our guided trip to Delos, our full... read more
10 days in norway: 7 unique itinerary ideas, Norway - May 28 - Jun 8, 2019
I can't thank Julia enough for all her recommendations of where to go in Northern Norway. I started out trying to organise the trip myself, as I would usually do, and Norway had me perplexed with exactly where to go and how much time we would need. Julia was spot on with her advice and location choices. Particular highlights were the Sea Cabins in Reine, the stunning house and surrounding areas in Senja and the gorgeous accommodation approximately 30 minutes outside Tromso. Active Tromso... read more
Trip to nepal, Nepal - May 18 - Jun 5, 2019
Review for Nepal Tibet trip from 18th May – 5th June 2019
Unforgettable Nepal, I was back to this country again for trekking to Lower Mustang,
which is very similar to Tibet Plateau?
First time domestic flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara without delay, leaving me plenty time to explore this town again either food or shopping. Stunning view from plane flying from Pokhara to Jomsom and landed on an “unbelievable” that it’s an airport! Weather changed from hot Pokhara to a dry and cool Mustang,... read more
Athens, mykonos, santorini, Greece - May 20 - May 28, 2019

Peru father daughter adventure, Peru - May 21 - Jun 4, 2019
Anne was wonderful and so caring. Made the trip seamless. She wants people to learn and explore her country not on a bus with 100's of tourists.
I would definitely recommend Peruvian Soul to future travelers! She worked with our budget seamlessly and didn't feel like a budget trip AT ALL. Kudos to her hard work! Thank you so much!!
Discover athens, mykonos, santorini and crete - 10 days, Greece - May 19 - May 28, 2019

Trip to greece, Greece - Jun 6 - Jun 14, 2019
Tasos was great in planning our trip. We got to see everything my grandson wanted to see and more. The guides he booked were great, everyone of them. The driver, Nikos , he booked for the Olympia, Vasse, and Mycenae trip was the most professional diver we could ask for. He was very accommodating to our every need. Very engaging in conversation and went out of his way many times to makes us happy. We felt like we met as strangers but parted as friends. The boat trip with Socrates... read more

Italy trip, Italy - May 28 - Jun 8, 2019
Mario did a great job with our trip! His planning took all the stress out of our visit. From the transfers, to the guides, to the trains, everything was perfect. We loved our guide, Julia in Florence. She was very informative and catered our tour to our tastes.
David in Venice was extremely knowledgeable and again, catered the tour to where and what we wanted to see.
Our Murano, Burano and Torcello tour out of Venice was awesome. A great way to explore the islands.
Loved our tour of... read more
Best of the dalmatian coast - 8 days, Croatia - Jun 4 - Jun 13, 2019
Croatia is a beautiful country of rocky mountains, clear waters and blue lakes. It was our first time visiting Croatia and we really enjoyed our time spent exploring the coast between Dubrovnik and Split.
Booking through KimKim was an easy platform. Robi and his team put together an itinerary that was a perfect way to explore the Croatian coast, including a good mix of islands and historical towns. We were never too busy and had time to explore on our own.
Goran, our tour guide was very... read more
Trip to greece, Greece - May 25 - Jun 8, 2019
I can’t say enough about Christos, Maria, Angeliki and Dimitris and the whole travel12 team. Wow! They planned a wonderful and seamless trip for my teens and me. Anything went perfectly and if it didn’t the travel12 team make it right AND gave us something to make up for the trouble. In Skopelos our favorite island we had the team schedule us a mamma Mia tour. But on the day the tour company did not show up and didn’t have our reservation. Travel12 got right on it and got us scheduled for... read more

Greece at it's finest, Greece - Jun 5 - Jun 15, 2019
In one word - AMAZING!
Tasos and his team helped us plan a trip of a lifetime. Beginning in Athens with our driver, Lampros, who took us to the Sounio Temple and an impromptu dinner, which was wonderful. We then did an Acropolis tour, which was fascinating and awe inspiring.
Our next stop was Tinos. Our accommodations at Favie Suzanne were great, but the personal service we got from both Yannis and Fabio was above and beyond - they were so helpful. Tinos is a beautiful island, which we... read more

Trip to mongolia, Mongolia - Jun 5 - Jun 13, 2019
Oyu planned a wonderful 10days roadtrip for us. There were 6 of us (grandparents, 2 kids and us).

We covered the Terelji National Park, sunset at Ugii Lake, explored the ancient city Kharkhorin and Endene Zuu Monastery, Ongi Monastery, sliding @ Singing Sand Dunes, horse riding at Yol Valley to see the ice lake and not to mention building our own gers! Our guide and driver,... read more

Khopra danda trek, Nepal - Apr 18 - Apr 28, 2019
I travelled to Nepal for the first time with my 3 kids and 2 other young people. What a fantastic experience. Ngima was informative and helpful right from the word go. Tailored the trip to our needs as an extended family group and obviously chose a trek that suited our fitness. Everything went smoothly from the first airport pick up to our wonder guide Pemba and our porters.
Nepal itself was simply marvellous. A mix of the bustle and fun of Kathmandu to the trek on the Khopra Danda track in... read more
Langtang trek - 11 days, Nepal - May 29 - Jun 9, 2019
We just got back from an amazing adventure in Nepal. We can't thank Kimkim enough for helping to create a magical trip. From start to finish, we couldn't have asked for anything more. Erin, our local specialist, was extremely responsive in arranging all of the details for our time in Nepal, patiently answering my questions and providing a lot of information to help us prepare for the adventure. Raj welcomed us our first night in Nepal, and met with us again on our last day, making sure... read more
Dalmatian coast self-drive tour - 12 days, Croatia - Jun 4 - Jun 13, 2019
We had an amazing holiday and a lot of the credit should go to Robi, who was amazingly attentive both in London when we were planning the holiday and also in Croatia. He planned the trip extremely well for us and explained everything we needed to know, provided the best guidance and support but was never pushy. Communication was perfect and all Robi's recommendations were spot on.
We had such a good time, I have no hesitation in giving 5 star praise.
Trip to morocco, Morocco - May 31 - Jun 8, 2019
We had a wonderful vacation in Morocco! We visited Casablanca, Rabat, Mekenes, Volubilis, Fes, Marrakesh and the High Atlas mountains.
Hajar (local specialist) made every effort to understand what we were looking for and did an amazing job planning out the itinerary in detail. I had a mix of phone/email interactions to finalize our plans. Oussama and their operations team made the plan a reality!
Our driver Hafid drove well; he was calm, pleasant and ensured our comfort at all times. ... read more
The very best walks on corsica: 7 days, France - Jun 6 - Jun 12, 2019
Overall a good trip. We had 2 drivers. One was English speaking - Emanuel. We enjoyed his knowledge and sense of humour. The other was Patrick whose English was less extensive. So we couldn't chat much to him unfortunately so we couldn't learn as much from him during our long drives.
Both drivers were nice people and very punctual and helpful.
We missed the train ride due to incorrect timetable information provided ( traveling on a public holiday) and that was a shame. However that hiccup... read more
Italian , Italy - Jun 3 - Jun 10, 2019

* all of them adjusted to our needs...
Spain, Spain - May 31 - Jun 9, 2019
Patricia planned the perfect trip for us. She communicated with me throughout the planning process and answered any messages in a timely matter. Our hotels were perfectly located, clean, and the staff were very pleasant. All of our drivers arrived on time and were courteous. Our tour guides , Elena in Madrid, Sara ( tapas tour), Damiano in Seville, Alvaro in Gilbratar, and Danahe in Barcelona were very knowledgeable and informative. I would definitely use KimKim again.
Trip to peru, Peru - May 25 - Jun 10, 2019
My daughter and I really enjoyed our trip. The connections were seamless and always on time. The best part of the trip were our guides. They were all well informed, interesting, and just plain fun to hang out with. I would highly recommend Kim-kim.
China holiday, China - Jun 2 - Jun 9, 2019
I d just like to thank Lemon and the team from kimkim for a such a well organised tour of China ! My three guides Jerry, Candy and Danny treated me very well and spoke clear English fluently. My first guide Jerry, showed me the highlights of Beijing, the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, a rickshaw ride and visit to a local family and the summer palace. The second guide Candy, she was very experienced and knowledgeable about her tour in Xian, Terracotta Warriors, Museum, old... read more

Preeti took the info we gave her on what we wanted to do and see and designed a great vacation for my family I will recommend her to all my friends that want to experience the wonderful place called Iceland
Trip to italy, Italy - May 31 - Jun 5, 2019
Overall, the expectation for this experience was met, however I expected more service from the concierge and better coordination between the planner and concierge for each location I got a concierge.
The concept of having a digital travel agent was very appealing especially since the planning is performed by people locally and helps for my busy schedule. I felt during the planning process I got the service I expected. However, I felt that I was not attended too as much as I thought I would... read more
2-week ring road self-drive itinerary: highlights of iceland and the remote westfjords, Iceland - May 24 - Jun 8, 2019
Chris did a great job putting together a memorable trip around Iceland, encouraging us to explore some of the more remote areas. We had all kinds of weather from sleet and snow and wind to warm sun. No problem at Lake Myvatn with bugs, probably because it was a bit cool. Good marsh bird watching there and at Djupivogur. Loved Seydisfjordur and the newly renovated guesthouse, Vio Lonio. Appreciated being pointed to the various little museum: Sheep Farming Museum in Holmavik, Herring Museum in... read more
Saranda to split road trip , Albania - May 24 - Jun 1, 2019
This was a fantastic experience and tour … absolutely gorgeous scenery … and very few tourists to compete with. Ed's Drive Albania put together a custom itinerary through 4 countries. Our guide - Ardi - was absolutely fantastic … at the end of the trip we consider him our friend and have invited him to visit us in Florida. Ardi was always making sure we were being taken care of and even modified the itinerary at our request. A very high service level.
We agree with the write-ups that... read more
Can you organise a custom trip for 2 in the chachapoyas area?, Peru - May 25 - May 29, 2019
We loved our trip to North Peru that we organised through Phima Voyages. Martina was wonderful as we made our plans and bookings. She kept us really well informed and provided lots of good advice and local information.
The airport transfers and hotel bookings were very well organised.
Our tours were wonderful. It was great to get away from the main areas for international tourism and explore a bit more of Peru. A highlight for us was the ruins at Keulap, but we enjoyed our experiences too.... read more
Trip to bolivia, Bolivia - Jun 1 - Jun 10, 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Bolivian Altiplano. Milenka was very good at planning the trip for our group of six . She was available for help and tips before and during the trip . It was very easy to work with her. The hotels she picked were comfortable and in great locations . We especially enjoyed the Hacienda Cayara in Potosi ( it was like going back in time) and the Palacio de Sal. Her guides were all very nice and knowledgeable. I want to especially commend the two drivers we... read more
Asian hike adventure, Bhutan - May 13 - May 31, 2019
What rating do you give a tour when the guides – literally – saved your life? We arrived in Bhutan and began acclimatizing to the higher altitudes. Part of this process included hiking to Tiger’s nest (which was utterly amazing) and we hiked from Cheila Pass to Kila Goemba (a monastery). In regard to altitude, we were hiking at altitudes as high as 3,988 meters. While I did experience some issues, I got through both hikes, relatively, unscathed. In case one wonders, I was taking medicine to... read more
Ireland 2019, Ireland - Jun 1 - Jun 9, 2019
I thought overall this was a well planned trip. Every day was different and it felt that there were different themes. We didn't drive long between locations. What made it so successful is that we had a framework and a structure, but allowed us the flexibility to change our plans during the course of the day. Weather is Ireland is always unpredictable. We had a challenging start but the weather came through nicely at the tail end of our trip.
On the first day, driving up to Galway made... read more
Dubrovnik to tirana private tour, Albania - Jun 1 - Jun 9, 2019
Ed and Ardi were unfailingly polite and available to help us with every request.
Norwegian highlights: oslo, bergen & the sognefjord - 7 days, Norway - May 31 - Jun 6, 2019
I enjoy planning and booking trips on my own, however for this last minute vacation I felt pressured. We would be meeting family in Europe then travelling on together for just 5 full days in Norway. The itinerary (Norway in a Nutshell based) involved several connections by train and ferry at the beginning of tourist season, and I was worried that by the time I did my research the tickets we wanted would be unavailable. So I decided to let kimkim expert Andre handle everything. Good move;... read more
norway's ultimate fjord adventure , Finland - Jun 3 - Jun 10, 2019
We absolutely loved Norway. It is a beautiful country with wonderful people. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Our boat tour through the fjords was gorgeous. We especially enjoyed the Flåm train ride and our trip to Lofoten Islands. A guide named Boyd, from Aktiv took us on a very nice kayaking tour. He was very informative about the people, the culture, and the history of the area.
Planning the trip with Ingrid was a dream! She had excellent suggestions, was thorough in her planning... read more
Athens & islands, Greece - May 20 - May 31, 2019
We had an extraordinary trip to Greece, in large part because of the excellent guidance we received from Nicky. We found that our vacation very much matched our sensibilities in terms of our destinations, accommodations, and the activities that were planned for us. The pre-trip planning process went very smoothly and communication was prompt and very helpful.
Despite a few glitches that were quickly remedied, the logistics of drivers and ferries was handled smoothly. I’m pretty sure the... read more
Highlights of macedonia, North Macedonia - May 12 - May 16, 2019
Xheni was incredibly patient! I changed my plans several times and she was always flexible and understanding. We had a really great time in North Macedonia and really appreciate all the excellent input from Xheni. Thanks for everything.
Greece, Greece - May 14 - May 23, 2019
In planning my trip to Greece, Vasilis was very attentive. He adjusted my itinerary many times to meet our needs. Our anniversary dinner he planned at Point A was outstanding. However, our travel documents were not received until May 9th for a May 13th departure. I feel that was cutting it close just in case there were any issues. As a whole, the trip was outstanding. Lampros, the driver in Athens, was excellent. Our tour guides in Santorini, Gustos and Paris, were fabulous. Costos and... read more
