Trip to jordan, Jordan - Oct 6 - Oct 14, 2019
I cannot fault the quality of service provided by Amanda.
Planning a trip to Jordan is quite a daunting task. It was also going to be our honeymoon so the pressure was on!
My partner and I aren't the most organised people in the world, so we only started to look into planning our trip a couple of months before our wedding. Unsurprisingly, this was a very busy time for us...!
As soon as got in touch via kimkim, Amanda immediately took on the burden of honeymoon planning. She was efficient,... read more
Addamo holiday, Sri Lanka - Oct 4 - Oct 12, 2019
What an amazing tour. From the moment we considered this trip Shalindra offered assistance. We catered everything to our wants and our dreams were fulfilled. Kapudeh (forgive the spelling) was informative and helpful but also intuitive, giving us time to breath, time to enjoy and time to sit back and watch the amazing scenery of Sri Lanka pass by. Our guide went above and beyond. We stopped where we wanted, ate what we wanted and shopped where and when we wanted. We loved the Leopard... read more
Thank you and your team for putting together a wonderful experience for Fiona and I through Jordan and Lebanon. There were so many memories made that will recall for years to come. Jeita Grotto Limestone Caves in Lebanon, Jerash, Petra, Wadi Rum and the Dead See in Jordan are great examples of what these countries uniquely offer.
Our drivers were very good and conversed well with us about life in Jordan and Lebanon.
Jordanian food was excellent and we tried everything. The “mansaf” that... read more
Trip to japan, Japan - Sep 24 - Oct 2, 2019
We had a fantastic 10 day trip throughout Japan! Alan, Gibwa, and Katherine were wonderful to work with. They were quick to respond and very thorough. They created a custom journey with many of the must-see highlights as well as some hidden treasures. Some highlights were our bike tour through Takayama with our guide Taka. The festival float exhibition hall exceeded expectations and we'd love to go back and experience the exhibition. Our cooking class in Kyoto was a blast! We had a wonderful... read more
Western norway's rivers, islands & fjords - 10 days, Norway - Sep 18 - Sep 25, 2019
All the hotels were great. All but 2 transportation arrangements went off without a flaw. Overall, we are very pleased with our visit to Norway. I am thankful that Ingrid helped me to arrange everything!
In Oslo, we liked the Thon Europa more than the Thon Spectrum. The Europa had a better breakfast buffet, was an easier walk from the train station & the neighborhood seems a bit better. Next door to the Europa is the Brunello Ristorante. You should recommend this to others! This was some... read more
Trip to morocco, Morocco - Oct 5 - Oct 10, 2019
We had an amazing trip, thanks largely to Moroccan Immersion Tours and Adventures and to the help of Sharon (who helped us plan our 6 day itinerary) and to Abdou, who was our gracious, informed, and unfailingly cheerful guide. We contacted KimKim only about 4 weeks before our trip and were quickly connected with Moroccan Immersion/Sharon. Sharon was extremely helpful -- and patient! -- in recommending options for our 6 day trip, jumping on the phone with me at least a few times for me to... read more
Colombia in september: travel tips, weather, and more, Colombia - Sep 20 - Oct 6, 2019
We had a great time, just as we had wanted it. Highlights, were the guided tour in Medellin. Gorgona diving, Bazurko market, the seamless transfers and the nice hotels, particularly Bioxury and Ananda. However there were often unnecessary early starts that put us at the airports around 3 hours before the due time of flight departure.
We really appreciated your help and availability during our trip, the welcome by Jules at the airport and the most useful SIM card. We have... read more
Active and cultural croatia tour - 10 days, Croatia - Oct 4 - Oct 13, 2019
Our group of eight had a wonderful trip to Croatia. Veselka and her team were terrific to work with. We had a great itinerary and every detail met our expectations. Veselka worked with us right up to our day of departure for Croatia to assure all of our needs were taken care of. Our guides were pleasant to be with and helped to educate us on Croatia today and yesterday; ‘V’ in Zagreb, Anna Marie and Vedran in Hvar, and Anada in Dubrovnik were all terrific. They opened our eyes to a beautiful... read more
Chengdu city & pandas - 4 days , China - Oct 9 - Oct 12, 2019
I have recently returned from the 4 day Chengdu tour and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
The service provided by KimKim was first class from the minute I enquired about the tour on-line, Lemon my first point of contact was very helpful with any questions or concerns I had,
Andie the tour guide and my driver were both excellent and their local knowledge made the trip extra enjoyable.
The highlights were definitely seeing the Giant Pandas which I personally feel was one of the best... read more

Highlights of croatia , Croatia - Oct 2 - Oct 10, 2019
This was my first solo travel experience and Marina ensured it was a memorable one. From the beginning she helped plan a wonderful itinerary tailored specifically to my interests. She provided all the information and details I needed before hand to ensure I was prepared for my trip. When my cousin decided to join me in Dubrovnik, Marina was kind to ensure it’s feasibility. Marina also went the extra mile in providing me with her personal number, checking in with me to ensure I was Ok during... read more
Exploring guatemala, Guatemala - Oct 5 - Oct 13, 2019
Everything was so great! Upon arrival Catherina called us to check in which was extremely thoughtful. Esteban, our overall guide was absolutely fabulous! He was so knowledgeable and kind. He was a great driver and tour guide. We loved our time in Antigua, Lake Atitlan and Tikal. I would highly recommend Esteban for any other tour. Pablo, our driver in Tikal was really kind too. We found out he was a Audubon member for birding! We loved the Cacao boutique hotel, the service was fabulous and... read more
A taste of morocco: casablanca to marrakech - 7 days, Morocco - Oct 2 - Oct 10, 2019
Well, what a trip !!!! We got picked up in Casablanca by our wonderful driver, Muhammed Ismail. He was a very cautious but good driver and we felt in safe hands with him at the wheel. The tour vehicle was excellent with plenty of room for both us and the bags and nice AC. I booked the first night myself for the Casablanca night ( "Suite Hotel Casa Diamond") and I will recommend that you use that hotel in your itineraries since it was an outstanding hotel with beautiful rooms and the best... read more

The accommodation was world class and the tour ran really smoothly!
Trip to spain, Spain - Sep 16 - Oct 4, 2019
Sam, Rocio and the Tailormade Andalucia team provided an excellent service. They guided us very sensibly in terms of our 3 week itinerary - at the right pace and with a great mix of experiences, including local guides now and then. Our accommodation was of a very high standard... and when things weren't quite perfect they intervened to make sure things were. They were absolutely committed to making sure we had a great trip and nothing was too much trouble. So thanks again Sam and Rocio! We loved Spain and we will be back!

Amman, petra, dead sea, Jordan - Sep 15 - Sep 22, 2019
Super easy process, Sarah was wonderful in accommodating all my questions and changes, giving me information on different options available for me at my budget, and very supportive while I was on the trip. As a single woman traveling alone, this was the best value for money I found, a completely tailored trip for me, very professional service from the drivers and Sarah, and a great experience overall.
Trip to morocco, Morocco - Sep 21 - Sep 28, 2019
Stumbled upon Kimkim by chance when trying to search for a quick way to plan our Morocco trip amidst our busy schedules. Brahim was assigned to us very quickly and he was extremely responsive. After a quick chat over the phone, our customised itinerary was available the next day. Brahim answered our questions with great haste, demonstrating a wealth of local knowledge on weather, culture, apparel sensitivities of the different regions etc. The booking process was also swift and easy to use.... read more

Trip to greece, Greece - Sep 23 - Oct 6, 2019
We enjoyed our trip around Greece and the arrangements made by Travel12 were top notch. We normally make all our own arrangements but decided to try KimKim because we could customize our itinerary and let KimKim make all the detailed arrangements. It turned out to be a very good combination. The hotel locations were centrally located which we like, and the tours were all very good. The transfers to/from the airports were very convenient. That’s something we have never arranged on our own and... read more
Highlights of croatia: zagreb to dubrovnik - 15 days, Croatia - Sep 17 - Oct 1, 2019

Kyle's 40th birthday trip to spain, Spain - Sep 19 - Oct 2, 2019
Our family trip to Spain was very memorable. Sam and his team were top notch and provided us with everything that we needed from hotels to transportation to specialized guides for all the things that we were interested in seeing and experiencing. They put such a personal touch on every step of the way. Each day they had us dialed in for exclusive experiences; and the tickets were Pre-paid so that we were able to go right into some of the worlds greatest attractions like last sagrada Familia... read more
Sacred valley, short inca trail & amazon adventure - 9 days, Peru - Sep 14 - Sep 24, 2019
Anne was integral in helping me plan my husband and I's first trip to Peru. She was wonderful in giving different options that fit our interests and budget. It was so great to have drivers and guides pick us up from the airport and transport us to our next destination and all of of it went seamlessly. We loved the beautiful landscapes, Peruvian cuisine and the lovely people. Cusco was a magical place to spend time in and we will not forget our Amazon experience. Even when I was sick... read more
Lance and dom - italy in 9 days., Italy - Sep 27 - Oct 8, 2019
The best review I could give is to say that when I do my next Italian Holiday I’m going to get KimKim to organise it for me again. We had the most amazing, stress-free holiday I could ever have imagined. Thank you so much Matthew for your amazing attention to detail and the clarity of all of the documentation; worth every penny. The hotels were really well located and made getting around so easy. The care that we were given made our Italian adventure a trip of a lifetime. We felt very spoilt.
Grand morocco tour: north to south - 10 days, Morocco - Sep 26 - Oct 5, 2019
Brahim was splendid in helping us organize our trip. Particularly helpful was the tipping guide, that served as our bible throughout the trip. I am glad that he strongly recommended the camel ride in the desert. May I say that we were happy to have missed the sunset ride. Rising at 5 am and seeing the amazing starts, and enjoying the peace and quiet of early morning; plus, having a private ride of just we two with Mustafa our camel driver was amazing, and by far my favorite moment in the... read more
Highlights of croatia: zagreb to dubrovnik - 15 days, Croatia - Sep 17 - Oct 1, 2019
This was altogether an amazing trip. All hotel accommodations were excellent and well-situated for our needs and stays were well-allocated. Katja met us in Ljublijana and made sure we understood the tip itinerary and provided us with maps, catamaran tickets, etc. Sedja was an excellent guide for Zagreb, providing us with thorough details of the city to fully enjoy all the city had to offer. After picking up our car, we drove to Ljubljana where we met Katja. We had chosen to do the food... read more
Trip to greece, Greece - Sep 23 - Oct 3, 2019
Overall I was very pleased with the trip and had many pleasant experiences. Naxos was by far the highlight of the trip. It didn't have the crowds and commercialism that were present on Santorini. It was very noticeable that the residents of Naxos smiled more and seemed happier than their Santorini counterparts. On Naxos the guide who took us on the bicycle tour deserves special mention, he was outstanding. The cooking class on Naxos also deserves special mention. In Athens the guide on... read more
Cairns, uluru & sydney - 10 days, Australia - Sep 23 - Oct 2, 2019

Trip to iceland, Iceland - Sep 15 - Sep 21, 2019
Emanuela was exceptional! Couldn’t have relaxed for the trip without their help! Appreciate all the attention and assistance that was given. Picking up the car reserved for us with hotspot was so easy! We had a wonderful time and can’t wait to go back!
Kimberly chau (traveler 3), Brazil - Sep 22 - Oct 3, 2019
I interacted with so many people and I can't all remember their names. Everyone was very nice and helpful from Noriela, to each of the hotel crew and tour guides. We had an excellent time. I've been in many trips and the Buenos Aires, Mendoza, Iguazu falls and Rio is up there.
Thank you very much!
Morocco, Morocco - Sep 27 - Oct 1, 2019
Brahim invested time and effort to fully understand our requirements and put together a 3-day itinerary that took the 2 of us from Marrakech to Fes via the desert. Our driver (Adnane) spoke good English and made sure that we had everything we needed to have a safe and enjoyable trip.
Trip to greece, Greece - Sep 26 - Oct 2, 2019
the guide for the food tour in Athens was awesome! Andreas Morgridge
The guide for the farm tour in Mykonos was awesome as well, as was the food and the ladies that cooked. I just can't recall their names.
The wood boat tour in Santorini was good, the swim in the hot spring area of the volcano was oversold, it was cold and difficult to navigate.
Overall the wood boat tour was good and the sunset was beautiful
I would change 2 things, it is very very confusing the ports in both Santorini... read more
Honeymoon in myanmar, Myanmar - Sep 24 - Oct 4, 2019
My husband and I went on a 10 day tour of Myanmar for our honeymoon, and it was the best decision we could have made. What a beautiful country with amazing people! The whole Pure Myanmar team took extra care of us from our first contact until the end, treating us like friends.
We loved every part of the trip and were sometimes moved to tears of happiness -- some highlights being the circular train in Yangon and Shwedagon Pagoda, the elephant preservation in Kalaw, watching the sunset on U... read more
Trip to morocco, Morocco - Sep 26 - Oct 3, 2019
We are so happy that KimKim connected us with Abdellah, because we have had the most wonderful experience travelling through Morocco in a private tour that he organised for us.
He was so easy to talk to, and so accommodating as he tailored the tour to suit us and our schedule.
Abdellah chose for us the most wonderful riads and hotels for us to stay in during the tour. But the most special night was our visit to the Tiziri Desert Camp in the Sahara at Merzouga. This was a magical experience... read more
Fall 2019 journey, Romania - Sep 22 - Oct 1, 2019
The KimKim portal turned out to be an excellent tool to work with Silviu during the planning stages of the trip. It is easy to navigate and by keeping and allowing full access to the running dialogue, I found it a very good repository for reference and sharing with the rest of our group.
Silviu was responsive and very willing to tailor the trip to our requirements. He included everything that we had set out for him as our "wish list" for the trip and offered some options for our... read more
Northern lights, the Faroe Islands - Sep 30 - Oct 4, 2019
A taxi picked us up at the airport.
Taxi transfer to airport.
It was good but felt like there was not much to do. We were on our own a lot of the time.
The printed itinerary felt like there was a lot to do.
The Mulafossur waterfall was amazing.
We sat the trollfingur and the giant and the hag.
The old capital was adorable. The scenery was stunning. We did an amazing hike with Tummas in the mountains. Wow. Scared and enjoyed it at the same time.
Bolivia trip with desiree, Bolivia - Sep 22 - Oct 4, 2019
We really enjoyed the trip and Collin was great about listening to what we wanted and making it happen for us. For the most part, the trip was easy and enjoyable and things ran smoothly. The accommodations, food and guides were excellent for the most part.
There were a couple of communication errors -- For the Salar de Uyuni trip, we were not informed of any details during the 3 days, so for example, we were not told to bring suits and towels for the hot springs. Also when we arrived to... read more
7/10 days in peru: 5 unique itineraries, Peru - Sep 24 - Oct 2, 2019
We loved our trip to Peru. Although it was a lot of traveling we were able to visit Arequipa, Iquitos, the Amazon, Cusco, Aguas Calientes and Macchu Picchu within 12 days. Our visit to Tahuayo Lodge was a true adventure. We were able to explore and see Amazon wildlife with the help of our amazing guides, Herzog and Eduardo. The accommodations and food were great and Siomey was our friendly face at mealtime who ensured our food was always delicious. Julio Cesar took wonderful care of us... read more

We had an amazing trip, and experienced the local culture in many different areas of Nepal and saw breathtaking views ! It was like nothing else I have ever experienced . We felt very well supported by our guide Bhim when we visited ghandruk , and our guides in Chitwan. They were all amazing and friendly and full of information and knowledge in their local areas eg. the jungle animals, mountains, history of the area etc . Our trip planner Sangita and her husband bipin were so great and... read more
Iceland itinerary, Iceland - Sep 26 - Oct 4, 2019
We were a group of 4 people visiting Iceland and we took several tours - the South Coast, Golden Circle, Silfra, Snæfellsnes, and the Blue Lagoon. Zeynep built our itinerary and gave us very clear instructions on the time and place to be for these tours. I will even give her credit for arranging for the terrific weather. When our return flight got changed, Zeynep was right on top of it and updated our return trip to the airport. Thorough, organized, and friendly! We were more than happy... read more

Trip to peru, Peru - Sep 22 - Oct 4, 2019
Liz was our travel agent and she did a great job. Everyone at Andean Travel was really helpful. They provided additional guidance when we had a situation.
All our guides and drivers were great. The guides were all very knowledgeable and were able to answer our questions. I really loved the Machu Picchu tour with Javier? and the Sacred Valley tour with Ruth. They ensured that we had a truly unique experience.
I also really appreciated that we did not have to wait for transportation. All the drivers were waiting for us when we arrived in an area.
Trip to greece, Greece - Sep 11 - Oct 2, 2019
Our holiday was intended to give my wife and me a first time taste of cultural Greece.
Tasos from the Travel12 team suggested a great mix of archaeological sites as well as food and wine experiences extending from Athens to islands in the Cyclades, the astounding monasteries of Meteora to the Peloponnese and then Delphi. Our drivers were excellent, punctual and always courteous and friendly. All of the guides were exceptional, Tania and Constantine of Alternative Athens, Anastasia in Mykonos,... read more
Trip to peru, Peru - Sep 22 - Oct 4, 2019
Àll our drivers and guides were wonderful ! I admired our guide at Machu Picchu! He told personal observations that were not found in books! All the personnel were patient and kind! They were knowledgeable and considerate of our health and well being! As I’m presently on my last bus ride home, I can honestly say that I would recommend this service to anyone ! I need more time to find all our guides names to thank them personally - but I’m so happy to experience the beauty of Peru with the assistance of your staff and all the tours we took! Thanks to all!
Post cruise travel, Greece - Sep 26 - Oct 3, 2019
We enjoyed our trip very much and found the Travel12 team very responsive. The hotels were in great locations, but the rooms were very very small...especially the bathrooms. Other than that, all great. Although the two tours we had on Santorini were repetitive, we enjoyed the guides and our fellow tourists very much. We especially liked Sophia. She was extremely well informed and personable. Thank you for our great trip.
Adventures in southern italy - 7 days , Italy - Sep 7 - Sep 14, 2019
Our trip in Italy was fantastic. The drivers who picked us up and drove us to all of our destinations were extremely friendly, nice and professional. One of our phones was forgotten in one of our driver’s car, and he was kind enough to bring the phone back to us the next day in perfect condition. The hotels were greatly located, clean and the staff were very accommodating. The hotel in Amalfi and Rome were beautiful, however the hotel in Sorrento lacked some appeal as we were put in a room... read more
Trip to croatia, Croatia - Sep 4 - Sep 16, 2019
Antonia, we so appreciated your diligence and care in both planning and executing our incredible Croatian Adventure. All of our lodging, transports and activities were well done and suited our needs perfectly. The tour guides added so much to our understanding of the culture/ history/ people...most of them exceptional! So many wonderful experiences, hard to choose a favorite...kayaking, hiking Plitvice, biking/cooking/wine tasting in Konavle, drives cross country, Hvar and Vis, walking the... read more
Trip to greece, Greece - Sep 22 - Oct 1, 2019
Spent five days on a six cabin sailing vessel, traveling to the islands south of Athens. Seros, Serifos, Kythnos, Kos. Eight other tourists, plus the captain Alex, and we all got along very well. Aside from sailing, we swam in the coves, hiked the islands, and had dinner on the beach restaurants at night. Then, 3 days in Athens at a very nice apartment rental in the city, seeing the Acropolis, visiting the museums, and spending time reading in the local cafes. The local people spoke English... read more
Discover medieval romania - 6 days, Romania - Sep 19 - Sep 27, 2019
My husband and I are retired school teachers and usually plan our own trips, however because Romania is brand new to us, I checked online. When I read reviews of Raluca I was convinced to give it a try. I was not the easiest client, because first I said we like to hike. When Raluca offered us a complete hiking vacation, I saw that would be too much. So she changed our itinerary to include one all day hike in Craiului National Park and the rest exploring old Saxon villages, going in a rental... read more
Trip to greece, Greece - Sep 16 - Sep 21, 2019
We typically are DIY travelers. For air, ground transport, hotels, and activities, I enjoy the planning process. Often, this is driven by the very specialized aviation activities I enjoy. Indeed, the first part of our trip was to Belgium for an airshow and photography activities. However, I was a little unsure of myself when it came to Greece so we decided to go with Kimkim. I was struck by the professional nature of the website.
We were then put in contact with Rebecca who did a great job... read more
Trip to peru, Peru - Sep 20 - Sep 29, 2019
It is difficult to state the most memorable attractions because there were so many. Every attraction was unbelievable and at times jaw dropping. The attractions and scenery were something to behold!The adventure gave us a briliant insight into the geography, geology, history , culture, cuisine and lifestyle of Peruvians, both past and present.
I should state at this stage that our original reason to come to Peru was to learn about the Inca civilisation and we came away with an indepth... read more
Buffett plus , Ireland - Sep 22 - Sep 28, 2019
Our guide Maurice from Ireland Walk Bike Hike was very helpful both before and during our recent trip to Ireland. He and a woman from their office (whose name I don't recall) called twice in our 7 day trip to make sure all was well. Galway was a good base for excursions. Westport was a lovely little town. We heard the best Trad music there and on my husband's birthday too! Ballina was a fun. We tried the traditional hot seaweed baths since this wasn't something we could do in the US. It was... read more
Trip to costa rica, Costa Rica - Sep 21 - Sep 29, 2019
We are very disappointed with our experience with KimKim on what should have been a great trip. Randall was helpful in laying out an itinerary that suited our needs. The quoted price seem quite a bit higher relative to the experience of friends and family who have been to Costa Rica, which prompted us to ask about any included fees. Randall said that all contracts with tour operators were "confidential" and that "all benefits are passed along to you." He insisted that there were no added fees... read more
Icelandic sightseeing and fun, Iceland - Sep 12 - Sep 18, 2019
Preeti did an excellent job putting together our 6 day trip to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula and Southern Iceland. Her itinerary and suggested activities were spot-on, and she and her team were very responsive to questions and changes that we submitted. So glad we enlisted her help!
Experience spain, Spain - Sep 15 - Sep 29, 2019
Our trip to Spain was all that we hoped it would be. A view of the culture, it's diversity, history and richness has made us desire to return.
Patricia did a masterful job making our desired results a reality. We had a very diverse list of things we wanted to see and experience: history, culture, nature, etc.: and she spent a lot of time refining our itinerary to maximize each one.
She booked us in small hotels right in the center of historical areas so that we could easily, in our free... read more

We had an AMAZING time in Morocco and give all the thanks to KimKim and Brahim for the experience!! Everything was seamless and I never had to worry about anything from the moment we booked to when we left Morocco. Brahim had worked with me on all my asks, getting me everything I wanted in our itinerary and answering any random questions I came up with. Mohammad was our driver and we loved him! I was part of a group of 6 and he picked us up in a large van that was clean and had AC and fit us... read more
Trip to iceland, Iceland - Sep 18 - Oct 1, 2019
Our trip to Iceland was incredible. The places to stay were a wonderful and except for the last night way exceeded our expectations. The last night was fine it was just a smaller room than all the others we stayed at so had grown accustomed to the beautiful rooms and locations along the way. The hints of things to see and do were very helpful. The food was fabulous and enjoyed the breakfast offered at each hotel. Appreciated Caroline's suggestion to go clockwise around the island. It worked... read more
Russia's capital cities & golden ring tour - 7 days, Russia - Sep 23 - Oct 1, 2019
Our trip to Russia was amazing! What a beautiful and interesting country.
Our guide in Moscow, Sergei, was full of local knowledge and so friendly as were Darya(Vladimir Guide), Alexander (Suzdal Guide) and Irina (St Petersburg guide). The city of Moscow was very interesting and we were surprised by the beauty and splendour of the Kremlin. Vladimir was full of medieval history with beautiful churches. Suzdal was beautiful, had a very laid back vibe and some beautiful buildings/churches. ... read more

Casablanca to marrakech: imperial cities, hiking & the desert - 10 days for todd fischer, Morocco - Sep 22 - Oct 1, 2019
Our driver, Mohammed, was absolutely fantastic. He was one of the best parts of the trip. We had a great time in Morocco but wish our experience in Marrakech was a bit better. Our tour guide was okay but we walked for most of the tour instead of seeing places of interest. It would have been better if we hadn’t walked through the worst places of the city. When we left early, Brahim called to make sure we were happy. The customer service was unexpected and unprecedented. Overall, our favorite... read more
Self guided hiking tour, Ireland - Sep 13 - Sep 24, 2019
I had a really great trip with Kimkim. Everything was so easy all the way through and the team was always a phone call away if I had any questions or needed some help.
Dean was fantastic and even dropped in for a face to face half way through to check in. I received phone calls from the team during the trip which was really comforting as I was travelling alone.
Petrina was also always close by when I needed anything and responded very quickly to any questions I had.
The hosts at each of my... read more
Greek islands, Greece - Sep 20 - Sep 30, 2019
My wife and I had a wonderful time touring four Greek Islands. Kim Kim was extremely helpful in arranging all the ferry/boat transportation and local transfers. This made the journey very easy. This was one error on a ferry ticket time and date; as soon as I contacted the local representative, it was immediately corrected. Overall, we were very happy with the hotels that were selected for us; they all had central locations and they had amazing views.
A relaxing trip to spain with senior parents, Spain - Sep 12 - Sep 26, 2019
I've been to Spain several times and love this country so much. This time, I was taking my 74-year-old parents with me to Spain. It was their first time and I wanted them to have an amazing experience and fall in love with Spain as much as I did. Instead of planing the trip on my own, I decided to use KimKim to help me plan the trip to make sure my parents would have a smooth experience. KimKim connected me with Sam's team and it could not have been better. The entire trip was super smooth... read more
Outback australia - self drive, Australia - Sep 4 - Sep 17, 2019
The entire team was great! Whenever we encountered any issues they were resolved very quickly. The paperwork was very thorough and made the driving experience go smoothly. We will definitely contact KimKim for travel in the future.
Relaxed athens, santorini, naxos & mykonos - 8 days, Greece - Sep 8 - Sep 15, 2019
Fantastic walking food tour on Naxos
Great hotel in Santorini, 5 min walk to the black sand beaches
Informative walking tour in Athens
Kimkim hooked us up with a great personal driver in Athens!
First hotel in Athens was just ok, but it had a great view
Probably should have flown to Santorini rather than take a 5 hour ferry. With getting there early to avoid rush hour, it ends up being a 7 hour trip with a 5am wakeup. Worth the extra $
Exceptional Service: When all... read more
Best time of year to visit iceland, Iceland - Sep 12 - Sep 26, 2019
This is the third time we have used Kimkim to plan a trip and it was, as usual, extremely helpful. We wouldn’t have had such an interesting and easy time of it without their assistance. The local agency, Iceland Offbeat, arranged for a rental car, provided us with route information and booked all our hotels/guest houses. They also gave us good recommendations for things to do/see and some places to eat. They booked some specific activities that we requested such as a glacier hike, whale... read more
Hiking in southern dolomites, Italy - Sep 24 - Sep 28, 2019
David was very attentive to our requests and needs from the start. We wanted a hut experience in the Dolomites and he suggested a beautiful trip. We had a wonderful accommodation at Hotel Pider in Wengen, and then two days hiking to and back from Rufugio Fanes. The hikes had a lot of variety in addition to the beauty that is the Dolomites. The food was delicious and the hosts were welcoming in both places. We had several questions for David before the trip, which he answered promptly and graciously. We found his service very professional yet friendly.
Spain highlights, Spain - Sep 12 - Sep 20, 2019
I can't speak highly enough of my 9 day Spanish experience. From the drivers, the hotel service and Rocio, who made time to check in how my trip was going.
My tour guide Delia in Sevilla was great company and her knowledge was fantastic. She really made me feel welcomed. I can't recommend her enough. Kudos to La Azotea on Calle Zaragoza, some great tapas!
Both Madrid and Barcelona were great urban escapes. My tour guide Sandra in Barcelona was an absolute joy. She was quite taken back by... read more
Anniversary adventure-bike, hike, and paddle, Slovenia - Sep 9 - Sep 20, 2019
We recently visited Slovenia to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. We wanted a trip that was active but one that would also highlight the history and beauty of Slovenia. Katja helped to plan an adventure that exceeded all of our expectations. Every last detail was well thought out; we were able to explore the immense beauty of the country by foot, bike, and boat almost completely independently with the preset arrangements of gps directions and luggage transfers. After big days of adventure... read more
Top wildlife lodges in the ecuadorian amazon, Ecuador - Sep 4 - Sep 25, 2019
It was an absolute pleasure working with Mathias:
1. He listened carefully to our special areas of interest (birding photography) and designed a fantastic itinerary for us.
2. The accommodation and guides that he set up for us exceeded our expectations.
3. His personal input and support when we needed urgent medical assistance was invaluable.
4. He was always available and responsive throughout the whole 4 week trip
In Mindo, Mathias set us up with Edison from... read more
Historic athens, mainland greece, cyclades and crete - 10 days, Greece - Sep 13 - Sep 22, 2019
I have nothing but praise for Tasos and his team of local travel specialists who made our 30th anniversary trip to Greece a trip of a lifetime. It's not easy to put into words how incredible the trip was for us -- we have come home with fond memories of EVERY experience we had and we wish we could more easily reconnect with our guides and the locals we met during our visit. I am not exaggerating in saying every detail was taken care of for us with punctual transfers, delightful hotels, and... read more
Upcoming trip, Egypt - Sep 2 - Sep 23, 2019
Ibrahim did a great job for my wife and I, booking tours with Egypt Promotion. Zain, a manager, gave us a local sim to borrow and checked in with us each evening to ensure everything was to our expectations. The guides and drivers were exemplary - special thanks to our Egyptologist guide Ahmed who was amazing, Mohamed and driver Said.
Experiencing the pyramids and temples were obvious highlights - we had a good amount of time to explore these grand structures with so much detail and history.... read more
Trip to greece, Greece - Sep 12 - Sep 23, 2019
Every phase of our trip was excellent. Starting with our excursion to Mycenae and Nafplio where we had both a driver and guides who were very personable and informative, to our hike and food tour on Naxos where our guides were outstanding, to our Cape Sounio and Athens Riviera sunset tour where our driver was terrific, we had an absolutely fabulous time. The only small glitch was that our dates for touring Mycenae and the Acropolis were switched from the original itinerary ( Mycenae was to be... read more
Discover jordan - 7 days, Jordan - Sep 13 - Sep 22, 2019
Carmen was very easy to communicate with.
She tailor made our package and accommodated our requests organising an itenary that we wanted.
Would recommend Carmen to others and would definitely use KimKim again.
Jordan was lovely, the locals and other people we met were very friendly and interesting to talk to.
Petra and Wadi Rum in particular are two places not to be missed.
Norwegian city, mountain & fjord adventure | hiking - 7 days, Norway - Sep 14 - Sep 20, 2019
My wife and I are so pleased we decided to hire Kimkim to plan our first trip to Norway. We had a limited time (6-7 days) and felt they did a wonderful job giving us the best itinerary for our interests/time constraints. The accommodations they selected were convenient and comfortable, the detailed itineraries they provided were extremely helpful (including maps, wayfinding info, etc.), and the guides they hired were professional and informative. If we had planned things ourselves we... read more
Western norway's fjord road trip - 8 days, Norway - Sep 20 - Sep 27, 2019
Andre was quick to respond and always accommodating. The hotels he chose were excellent, as were his suggestions for our day trips. We totally appreciated not having huge drives to make. His planning was superb!!! We can’t thank him enough for such an amazing experience!!!!!
Trip to morocco, Morocco - Sep 22 - Sep 28, 2019
Experience Morrocco did indeed make our trip a great experience. We could not have been any more satisfied. Every single aspect of the trip was perfect. Our guide, Ahmed, Had more than 20 years off experience and knew the country and its people very well. Both Ahmed and our driver, Abdul, looked over us 100% of the time and made us feel at home. We really did not miss anything. We saw it all.
The trip plan was also perfect and the special things we did were ones we will remember the... read more
Trip to morocco, Morocco - Sep 20 - Sep 28, 2019
Kimkim was the company with the best reviews I found in internet when I was planning my trip to Morocco by myself and being an older lady I really needed to make sure that I was in the beast hands.
Best decision ever! They put me in contact with the agent in Morocco, Abdellah, who immediately started to put together an itinerary that also included the hotels and a personal driver who took me around Morocco in the most comfortable newer SUV. He also picked me up and dropped off the airport,.... read more
Croatia biking and fun, Croatia - Sep 15 - Sep 21, 2019
Tomi planned an amazing trip. Everyone we met from the Bed and breakfast hosts to the water taxi driver seemed invested in us having a good time and things going smoothly. They showed us fun things to do in the area and answered all our questions. Communication with tomi and Ivana was prompt throughout and it was overall a wonderful experience. The views on hvar, korcula, and the bike to ston were simply incredible. I would work with tomi again!
Trip to morocco, Morocco - Sep 19 - Sep 28, 2019
I chanced upon kimkim while looking for tours in Morocco. They connected me to Abdellah and I have not regretted booking the tour with him. He was very receptive and open about our requirements and planned the tour in such a way that we were able to cover a lot of places in Morocco in 9 days. He was also prompt in replying to queries that we had during the trip and went out of his way to make it comfortable for us. Karim our driver/guide was most courteous, helpful and professional. It is... read more
How kimkim trips work in greece, Greece - Sep 15 - Sep 24, 2019
I discovered Kimkim online and got in contact for a little bit of advice to start with and was so impressed with Harris, our Kimkim contact, that we ended up booking our trip through him. His advice really helped me shape the itinerary, and he had lots of great suggestions for hotels, day trips and more.
We decided to book our hotels directly, but used Kimkim to arrange all our transportation between the islands of Mykonos, Naxos and Santorini, transfers to hotels and a few excursions.... read more
History and islands, Greece - Sep 12 - Sep 24, 2019
This was the first time for our group of 3 couples to use a tailored tour company. Tasos Mylonas and Travel12, the local tour company in Greece were terrific. Once the schedule was agreed upon, Tasos put together a detailed itinerary for our trip. Our goal was see many of the historic sites on the mainland and then tour a few of the islands. We saw wonderful antiquities and had super guides to bring these ancient locations to life. Penny at Delphi, Antonia at Olympia, Lena at Mycenae,... read more
Melbourne, cairns & sydney, Australia - Sep 9 - Sep 18, 2019
My Granddaughter and I had wonderful trip.Meeting first with Rogan Lind giving us an overview of what was planned was really helpful. All of the all of the hotels were perfect but the most perfect of all was the excursions we liked them all. Our favorites Sidney Opera House, The Great Barrier Reef, Penguin Parade,Kangaroos& Koalas in the wild. Trip guides were great especially Amy of Echiona Walkabout. I can't thank you enough for helping make this a memorable trip.
Bariloche & el calafate classic tour - 9 days, Patagonia - Sep 7 - Sep 13, 2019
Erin was super helpful in getting us all that we needed for our trip to Patagonia. She put together a completely customized itinerary to suit our needs. Everyone who was scheduled to pick us up and bring us somewhere was on time, was very pleasant, and the transfers went smoothly, with one exception, upon our leaving Torres del Paine National Park. In that case it was the other company that had some confusion in their paperwork and was expecting to pick up other people. The tour guide,... read more
Trip to france, France - Sep 19 - Sep 22, 2019
KimKim did a great job planning for the wants/needs of our group. We used KimKim for transportation, cooking classes, winery tours, and train tickets. I can’t say enough about our cooking class. Mathilde was knowledgeable, providing history and passion for her cooking class. She was also a great resource for things to do in the area. The meal we created in her kitchen was informative, fun, and delicious.
The train tickets and transportation was also great. With 5 girls and luggage, we... read more
How to spend two weeks in norway, Norway - Sep 2 - Sep 23, 2019
We had a very very positive experience each step of the way, from planning the trip with Emily (who listened very carefully to what we wanted, found the kinds of places we wanted to stay at, and developed an excellent itinerary that allowed us to see and experience truly beautiful places) , to the places we stayed, all that we saw, our hiking and kayaking experiences, and especially with our guide, Thomas Riis. He was an exceptional guide, outstanding in every way. Thomas was friendly,... read more
Western norway's fjord road trip, bergen | aurland | solvorn | geiranger | hjørundfjord | ålesund - 11 days , Norway - Sep 16 - Sep 26, 2019
We took an 11 day road trip through Norway that was a fantastic experience. We wanted to be on our own for the most part, but appreciated having the hotels and activities suggested for us. From there, Fridur helped us to customize something that worked for us. Fridur was also VERY helpful mid-trip proactively helping us to manage detours caused by unexpected weather.
We also very much enjoyed our time with David, our guide in Bergen. It was more like a friend of friend showing you his city than a stuffy tour. That was perfect for us.
Ireland, Ireland - Sep 16 - Sep 26, 2019
Our trip to Ireland was memorable and we will use kimkim and Ireland Walk Bike Hike again to plan new adventures. Although we did not bike at all we had many walks and shorter hikes in beautiful places. Our windy, rainy excursion to the Aran Islands was warmed by an Irish Coffee at a small island pub followed by a boat trip around the Cliffs of Moher. Our itinerary was ambitious and we will spend more time in fewer places next visit. Many thanks to trip planner Dean from Tralee who was... read more
History and islands, Greece - Sep 12 - Sep 24, 2019
The trip was very well planned and thought out. Sites visited were generally all worthy of the time spent. The "Welcome" dinner was very enjoyable. I recall two visits that were much too long; Santorini especially, as we didn't get to our hotel until after dark; We could have stopped at a couple of the museum stores if there had been a little time after the guided tour.
We liked most of the guides. The first one at the Acropolis, Jason was not a top level guide, nor was Katia in Tinos.... read more
Trip to france, France - Sep 13 - Sep 17, 2019
Our trip to Paris was flawless and memorable thanks to Joel’s help from Kimkim. From airport pick-up to drop off, we didn’t have to worry about anything. Each guide we had was knowledgeable, helpful, and kind. We especially loved our guided trip to the Louvre, our pastry baking class, and our bike trip to Versailles. Our guide, Rachel, showed us where to get the best crepes and make the trip memorable and fun.

The team is very responsive and really listen to your requirement and tried to accommodate your demand . The response time is quick . When arrived in Mexico , the responsible person kept close contact to ensure things are on the correct track . The itinerary planned just fit our requirement .
It had included both the colorful culture and history of the country . Even with a last minute request to book a restaurant , the agent is willing and try her best to arrange for us ,
Focus on athens with some greek isles, Greece - Sep 8 - Sep 18, 2019
We absolutely loved our time in Greece. The hotels were great. We especially loved Hotel Adriani in Naxos and would recommend that place to anyone! Please continue to suggest this hotel to others. The staff there really made us feel welcome and a part of their family. We also really enjoyed our welcome dinner at Mavro Provato in Athens!
The pre-arranged driving and ferry services were extremely convenient. Being able to access our local contact when we had ferry delays was invaluable -... read more
Trip to morocco, Morocco - Sep 12 - Sep 22, 2019
Our driver, Said, was very good, he was attentive, polite, and informative. He made us feel like friends, not just customers. Our guide in Fes, name? Was very informative, and took us to a lot of co operative shopping spots. Our guide in Marrakech, was very amusing, but didn't give us much time to browse the medina.
