Morocco, Morocco - Apr 7 - Apr 16, 2019
Our honeymoon in Morocco was unreal thanks to kimkim. The planning was seamless and stress free. We simply highlighted the destinations we wanted to visit and the rest was magic. From the hotels, food and guides there was not one complaint. The culture, people and architecture is outstanding.
One highlight of our trip was the outstanding customer service. We received treatment as if we were staying at the Ritz everywhere. Moroccan's are deeply invested in tourism. Our driver,... read more
Trip to morocco, Morocco - Apr 3 - Apr 10, 2019
Thanks to kimkim and Yassine, who organized a wonderful trip for us to Morocco's imperial cities of Marrakesh, Rabat, Meknes, and Fez, along with visits to the coastal city of Essaouira and the commercial hub of Casablanca. Planning our trip was a breeze. Once I told Yassine we were particularly interested in food, history and culture, he recommended places to visit. I did some research and we settled on an itinerary. Although we spent a bit of time driving between destinations, that was an... read more
Trip to morocco, Morocco - Apr 6 - Apr 13, 2019
My husband and I had a wonderful trip to Morocco. Radia and team could not be more accommodating. We had just come off of 10 days of hiking the Amalfi Coast. I way over-booked myself for Morocco. But everything was perfect till our last Riad. There was a miscommunication between KimKim and luxury request and what Radia picked. This is mostly my fault for not doing more research. Everything else was perfect. Our driver, Mohammad stayed with us the whole trip was phenomenal. Great car with... read more
Family fun in spain, Spain - Apr 13 - Apr 19, 2019
It was a delight working with James on my family's recent trip to Andalucia. He was very helpful in guiding us through our options for traveling in the area. His knowledge and expertise of our travel options, as well as his flexibility and helpfulness in adjusting our itinerary to meet my family's specific needs, were essential in ensuring that we had the best experience possible. Our trip also included some slightly more challenging travel that involved the very busy (while delightfully... read more
Trip to greece, Greece - Apr 8 - Apr 14, 2019
We only had a few days available in Greece at the end of a four and a half month trip around the world and we wanted them to be special but fairly restful and Dimitris made the perfect plan for us. We were picked up at the airport by Stavros, who had bottled water, candies and a tour map ready for us. He was part taxi driver and part tour guide, telling us about the city as he drove us to our airbnb. We then had a few days to explore the city on our own. Dimitris would have arranged tours for... read more
Imperial cities of morocco - 7 days , Morocco - Mar 29 - Apr 5, 2019
The kimkim team handled a rather last minute booking for a private tour efficiently, and met my requests effectively.
The tour was splendid! Accompanied throughout by excellent driver Karim, I visited the four Imperial cities, plus Essaouira, Volubilis, Casablanca, Chefchaouen, and Amizmiz. Each place offered a new delight, and experience, and, for me, that made them all memorable. The mixture of history, different cultures, arts, and crafts, and scenery, made a kaleidoscopic impression, as... read more
Trekking northern patagonia: 8 days, Chile - Mar 11 - Mar 18, 2019
It is difficult to award “stars” for this experience – but something like 8 out of 5 would perhaps do it justice!
Equally difficult to pick a highlight in a trip full of them:
It started with a warm welcome from Ingrid in Puerto Varras. After a spectacular flight to Chaiten the next morning, a walk to a glacier and a first night in a nice lodge at Lake Yelcho, the trekking started in earnest the next day.
We started at our lead guide Ricardo’s family home in Futaleufú before setting off on... read more
Trip to japan, Japan - Mar 27 - Apr 6, 2019
Firstly we would like to thank Jeff for such wonderful communication throughout the planning, all the information we received before we began the trip and all the info in our packet on arrival. Everything worked like clockwork( except running for the wrong bullet train) because of the attention to fine details such as every ticket for transport, cards for each check-in and particularly the pocket wifi.
We had two guides, one in Tokyo and one in Kyoto . Ms Junko Dogauchi was helpful and we... read more
Trip to greece, Greece - Apr 1 - Apr 9, 2019
I recently wrapped up an amazing trip to Greece that Kimkim out together for me. Harris and his team took care of every detail with precision and care. Travelling by myself, it was especially meaningful to feel so taken care of and looked after. The team checked in after each excursion to ensure my satisfaction, handled cancellations due to bad weather, and ensured that my trip went effortlessly. The hotels, the excursions, the transfers; all exceeded my expectations! I will definitely be using Kimkim again and will recommend them whole heartedly to any of my travelling friends. Thank you!
Still exploring for spring break 2019, Ireland - Mar 22 - Mar 31, 2019
We had an amazing time. Warner was the perfect guide: knowledgable, easygoing, fun, funny, flexible, everything! We all missed him so much when he dropped us off in Dublin, like we had left one of our family members! Our favorite place was Adare Manor, along with the falconry and archery there. But all of the planned activities were great fun, including the ghost tour in Kildare, the bike tour in Kilkenny, etc. We will be back on day to explore the north of Ireland!
Simple and awesome!, Greece - Mar 30 - Apr 6, 2019
The ease of planning this trip through kimkim was one of the notable highlights of our honeymoon! Harris, our local specialist, suggested some great things for us to do that we wouldn't have been able to coordinate if we were planning the trip on our own, and he was very quick to accommodate any requests we had. Stepping off each plane or ferry to find someone with my name ready to take care of our transfers really eased a lot of the logistics of traveling. You always know that the sights... read more
Trip to morocco, Morocco - Mar 31 - Apr 6, 2019
Great experience....a trip of a lifetime...Mohamed was our guide, did an outstanding job, made sure we are always satisfied... he went above and beyond.
Trip to nepal, Nepal - Mar 24 - Mar 31, 2019
Kimkim connected my husband and I to Ngima from NMMT. We communicated via kimkim's easy online platform, and Ngima answered all our questions and suggestions in a timely and sensitive manner. Ngima's coordination of hotels, in-country flights, guides, drivers, trekking, and cultural tours were invaluable.
In Nepal, we did a day of sightseeing in Kathmandu to see Swayambhunath, Pashupatinath, and Patan Durbar Square. Our guide in Kathmandu, Kedar, was outstanding: incredibly informative,... read more
Adventure in patagonia - 15 days, Argentina - Mar 16 - Mar 31, 2019
The trip was very well planned and all the complicated connections came off as smooth as a babies butt. Hosteleria Cuernos tent situation was the only bummer of the whole trip. They put us in a tent immediately adjacent to the large tent housing the staff for this site. The staff stayed up until one in the morning laughing loudly singing talking and keeping the exhausted travelers up. Someone needs to let them know that we are supporting their livelihood and their behavior is extremely rude and uncaring for their guests.
Mallorca sailing trip, Spain - Mar 30 - Apr 6, 2019
Paty was the best host. Every detail was perfectly arranged. She was always available during the trip for any questions.
Trip to iceland, Iceland - Mar 23 - Mar 30, 2019
Our 7-day excursion to Iceland went very smoothly, and we were very pleased that all the logistics involved with the reservations and itinerary planning worked out well. Except for the hike to the airplane ruin, I think we did all the recommended activities!
Before engaging with KimKim, I had considered just piecing together an itinerary and reservations by myself. In the end, I'm glad we paid the premium to have specialists organize everything. It was extremely helpful to have someone with... read more
Colombia culture tour, Colombia - Mar 23 - Mar 31, 2019
I travel ninety-nine percent of the time independently and without the assistance of any organization or agency of any kind. I forgot how I stumbled upon Kim Kim but I thought the services looked so interesting and beneficial that I decided to take advantage of them.
Jess was very helpful and responsive to my inquiries. We also spoke by phone as necessary which was very helpful. The day she was not available, one of her colleagues was in touch with me by phone when my plane was delayed. I... read more
Tour of italy, Italy - Mar 25 - Mar 30, 2019
Our trip to Italy was fantastic! We saw so many sites in such a short time that it was all very exhilarating yet overwhelming! Our plan was to see and experience as much as we could on this trip so when we come back in a few years, we will know where we want to spend our time. Mario did a great job putting this together!
Venice was a phenomenal city, and while we explored and got lost on our own, the private guided tour with Davide was priceless. He took us to and through places we would... read more
The real colombia - 9-day adventure, Colombia - Mar 26 - Apr 5, 2019
One of the most memorable highlights of Bogotá was our trip to the market with German. We sampled some spectacular fresh fruit juices and ate delectable Lechones (whole pork stuffed with rice, peas and spices). We enjoyed the views of Bogotá from the vantage point of Monserrate. The food throughout Bogotá was varied and delicious.
In the Coffee Region, Jorge Sánchez expertly guided us along the trails of Corcoran Valley, Salento and a coffee plantation. The landscapes and cloud forests of... read more
Spring break 2019 - italy, Italy - Mar 29 - Apr 5, 2019
Awesome trip that covered the Amalfi Coast, Florence and Rome. Loved the accommodations arranged by Carmelo - its sometimes a challenge to travel as a family of 5 and the hotel, then apartment, then shared suite that he arranged for us were perfect! Each had great locations in easy walking distance to the town centers and attractions. Also had first rate drivers and guides in each location, and appreciated the way Carmelo checked in with us throughout the trip to make sure all was well. Things were smooth from start to finish.
Bogotá, coffee triangle & caribbean coast - 7 days , Colombia - Mar 23 - Mar 30, 2019
We had a great trip to Colombia. Natalia was a very good coordinator. She was very attentive to our requests for changes to the itinerary, very responsive to requests we had before and during our trip, and very accessible when we needed her to both answer questions and to arrange transportation when our itinerary changed abruptly due to bad weather on Islas Rosario.
Our first guide in Bogota, Juan was also very good. He connected well with everyone in the family. We especially loved the... read more
Trip to morocco, Morocco - Mar 21 - Mar 27, 2019
The booking process was smooth and Brahim was very prompt in answering our messages given that we only started planning a month in advance. We spent seven days in Morocco, starting and ending in Marrakech, with a four day trip out to the dessert and back in the middle. He selected excellent accommodations for our family of four, and suggested two activities in Marrakech that we would recommend - a walking tour in the Medina (our guide Mohammed was very knowledgeable although soft spoken and... read more
Jerusalem petra , Jordan - Mar 24 - Mar 29, 2019
The guide and car assigned to us for a VIP trip is inferior.
Guide has not taken the time to properly guide.
He was so rushed and quite annoying.
We had an excellent private trip in South America and this one was below standard the guiding etc.
Fortunately Jordan is a great country to visit.
Ultimate guide to diving in the galapagos, Galapagos Islands - Mar 25 - Apr 2, 2019
Linda was absolutely amazing and put together the ideal itinerary for us which turned out to be the trip of a lifetime! Not only was she there for all the preparation and planning but when we arrived she was a total star in sorting out lost luggage, making sure we were ok, and even tracking down a lost pair of glasses that caught up with us by high speed boat just before we were about to leave. 5 stars is just not enough, Linda really was a life saver! I highly recommend Linda and Kim Kim, absolutely brilliant!

Morocco highlights , Morocco - Mar 28 - Apr 3, 2019
Our overall experience planning and booking our Moroccan tour with kimkim was very positive, especially because of the efficiency, professionalism and very timely responses from our local specialist, Brahim. While planning the trip, Brahim was very attentive to my special requests and responded to my questions often within minutes. While on the trip, I emailed him twice and on both occasions he responded back promptly with the information I had requested. On our last night, he even called the... read more
Trip to new zealand, New Zealand - Feb 21 - Mar 9, 2019
Everyone we interacted with from the beginning of our trip planning to wrapping up was excellent. Valentin helped us build the perfect trip and patiently answered all of our questions along the way. Each and every bed & breakfast owner was extremely professional, welcoming, and helpful and we also found KimKim's partner company in NZ to be well-regarded. This trip was the perfect way to view the beautiful country of New Zealand and so much of what it has to offer. At one point, we had in our... read more
Trip to morocco, Morocco - Mar 30 - Apr 3, 2019
Overall, the experience was amazing thanks to KimKim. We felt safe in a country We were unfamiliar with, thanks to our awesome driver, tour guide, and riad staff. My only complaint would be, that the camp in the Afagay desert was empty. My friend and I were the only guests that night, so it was a little boring & creepy. However, the staff treated us like queens. We had an amazing dinner overlooking the desert and mountains, but it was very quiet. The tent we ate dinner in was huge with a... read more

Natalie was exceptionally helpful in recommending tours that worked for our family. She handled all the logistics, provided the guides, transportation if needed and even met us on the last day of our trip and gave us a gift!
All of the guides were knowledgeable, friendly, professional and experienced - our favorite was the cooking class with George, but all three Yannis's were great too! Nota's guided tour of the Acropolis and Acropolis museum was very informative and brought a lot of... read more

My Father-In-Law and I had a fantastic trip to Nepal! I want to thank Kim Kim for providing an excellent platform for planning and communication.

Trip to jordan, Jordan - Mar 22 - Mar 27, 2019
Our driver while in Jordon was Mohammad Althnibat, he was fantastic. We had unexpected health issues with one of our party and he was very supportive and helpful. He was always prompt and courteous. We went to Jerash and the tour guide there was Zehar, very knowledgeable and made the tour very good.
Our guide in Petra was Basil, we had trouble understanding him, which is too bad, he seemed to really know the area and was trying but we just didn't get any useful information. Our second day... read more
Sri lanka: trails of the ancient kingdom - 10 days, Sri Lanka - Mar 16 - Mar 24, 2019
Damayantha was a fantastic guide. After he picked us up from the airport and on our way to our first lodging he stopped and had us experience king coconut juice from the coconut. He also pointed out things of interest along the way. He is a superb driver and we were extremely comfortable with his driving during our long transitions between places we were staying. When he was called away with a death in his family and we had a new guide/driver, we appreciated his driving even more. Dama made... read more
Trip to iceland, Iceland - Mar 24 - Mar 29, 2019
My partner and I planned a six day trip to Iceland without really knowing much about the country or its culture besides the blue lagoon and fermented shark. Zeynep was very patient and very accommodating, and so informative. She helped us book a six day trip where we went on a foodie/golden circle tour, horseback riding, blue lagoon, and a two day south coast tour. She also gave us many resources for finding great places to eat and explore, and a very detailed itinerary. We asked her to give... read more
Highlights of vietnam - 12 days, Vietnam - Mar 17 - Mar 30, 2019
The overall experience was excellent. The guides chosen were knowledgable and the trip was organized very well. The accommodations were excellent.
Alex was excellent overall. She communicated well and on time. The only glitch we encountered, was we missed our pick up to Halong Bay. This cost us additional fees. We would have appreciated 10-15 minutes to go over the entire itinerary upon arrival with confirmation of times etc., or daily updates/ reminders by email.
In summary, our... read more
Buddhist highlights of burma, Myanmar - Mar 18 - Mar 25, 2019
Don't know where to begin - Everything was great!
Anne made planning the trip an easy and interesting experience. We changed our format, timing and group numbers several times and she worked with us to ensure the trip went off without incident. She had excellent recommendations on where to go (we customized the format).
Tin, our River guide, was amazing. Comprehensive knowledge of Myanmar, the areas we traveled and of Buddhism; excellent English, friendly but non-intrusive, and... read more

How to spend 7 days in morocco, Morocco - Mar 24 - Mar 31, 2019
Working with Brahim was very easy. It was clear from the start that he was very knowledgeable and motivated to ensure the trip was just as I wanted, but yet steering me in a direction that in his opinion would make a better trip.
We had a fantastic time in Morocco and were so happy we chose Kim Kim to help plan the trip. The driver provided, Racheed was extremely attentive, and very good with my two kids who accompanied me on the trip. He made sure we were taken care of and kept us... read more

We recently had the great pleasure of visiting Morocco. After a few emails back and forth with Brahim, our trip was finalised!

Everything ran like clockwork from the minute we arrived until the minute we left, thanks to Brahim and his team and I can’t thank them enough for organising such an... read more
Eco-adventure , Costa Rica - Mar 18 - Mar 26, 2019
Our recent 9 day tour to Costa Rica went off without a hitch! All the details were in place so that all our activities happened smoothly. We spent 2 days in San Jose going on a wonderful coffee plantation tour and visiting Peace Waterfall Gardens. Our Hotel Martino was located on the outskirts of San Jose, just 15 minutes from the airport, so we didn’t have to deal with all the traffic in San Jose.
Next we were off to a crocodile and bird tour on Rio Tarcoles, then on to Manuel Antonio... read more
Quick egypt , Egypt - Mar 21 - Mar 28, 2019
My experience in Egypt was great thanks to the guys from Egypt Promotion Travel. I ve been to other countries with some tour packages but never like the one in Egypt. This company have a personal touch, their staff is very firendly and best of all they are very knowledgeable (I felt like they could teach history in University). I was thinking to coordinate my tour in Egypt on my own ut decided to chat with their representative and basically expressed my idea and they were able to put... read more
5 days in morocco: 4 itinerary options, Morocco - Mar 26 - Apr 1, 2019
I used kimkim because I heard good reviews about them and when I was connected with Brahim, he proved to be very reliable, answering all my questions promptly. He was willing to work with my sort-of complicated schedule. I’m very impressed at how fast he would get back with me, something that I require when dealing with a travel agent.
My driver, Said, met us at the airport and drove us for six days. I was happy to have him around. Although his English wasn’t completely fluent he still... read more
Discover colombia's great cities - 14 days, Colombia - Mar 16 - Mar 26, 2019
Kimkim made my trip to Colombia so memorable! I spent 12 days there, and everyday went smoothly & I had great experiences with all guides/tours. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The local guides were very knowledgeable & friendly, tours were super fun & organized and the hotel provided by Kimkim was exceptional. I would trust Kimkim to plan any of my future trips. They really take the stress and anxiety out of planning trips so you can just enjoy and relax. My favorite parts of... read more
Trip to chile, Chile - Mar 12 - Mar 25, 2019
With the help of Mery, I had a wonderful time in Patagonia. She planned a 14day trip of trekking in Patagonia and suggested locations I had not considered that ended up being incredible. El Chaltén, Argentina, was a wonderful addition to my original plans and I would have not discovered this wonderful town if not for Mery. She and her team at Say hueque deserve all the credit for my visit to the Argentine side of Patagonia being a success. Mery also booked a guided trek of Torres del Paine... read more
Outdoor adventures around medellin, Colombia - Mar 27 - Mar 31, 2019
The trip we experienced had some wonderful highlights. However, the hiking on the second and third days, was not properly described. This created a dangerous situation in which my wife was hurt. She had to stop hiking. The only way she got out was on horseback. Luckily, she has experience riding and the farmer who owns Jordan finca was skilled at guiding the horse down 10k of extremely steep, rocky paths and then through 5k more of just wet, slippery paths to safety.
Specifically, the... read more
Adventure in colombia's amazon region - 5-6 days, Colombia - Mar 21 - Mar 31, 2019
We had a great 4-day trip the Amazon region of Colombia. Our full-time guide for our trip was Odin and he was simply amazing. He was very attentive to our bilingual needs, since half our group only spoke English and the other part spoke mostly Spanish. Odin and every other guide was extremely professional and punctual for both the walking tours and the tours that required a boat ride. The Calanoa lodges where amazingly comfortable and well surpassed our expectations. The food was delicious,... read more

Trip, Costa Rica - Mar 15 - Mar 25, 2019
We used KimKim to arrange our first trip to Costa Rica and we were very, very happy how the trip was planned and coordinated through our awesome travel agent, Randall! We had such a great time hiking, biking, zip-lining, touring and had spa time as well and it was due to Randall who is amazingly knowledgeable and very nice and helped us to maximize our time in the country. He made us feel very comfortable with the planning from beginning to end. He was so responsive always- and even while we... read more

Jerusalem petra , Jordan - Mar 24 - Mar 29, 2019
Carmen has been very helpful ! Although There is a little "hiccup " in the beginning of the planning, but at the end was great!
The guide: Eddie was not being helpful. I think he is not good for the line of work in the hospitality / service works. He might be good for other kind of works. He is impatient, he is annoyed when he has to wait, he doesn't like to take our group picture, he walked all the way in the front while we were enjoying the view , he gave some wrong information about the... read more
Trip to jordan, Jordan - Mar 22 - Mar 27, 2019
Tamara and WhyJordan? gave us a magnificent vacation in Jordan. It's hard to know where to start because everything from planning to our trip was so seamless, and beyond our expectations.
As the 6 of us requested, this was a truly 5* trip from airport pick-up, to hotels, to excursions & experiences. Tamara chose 3 top hotels and we loved them all. Mohamed our driver throughout the trip listened and reacted to us, and made sure we had fun and learned. When my husband fell ill, Mohamed's... read more
Jerusalem petra , Jordan - Mar 24 - Mar 29, 2019
Jordan was very beautiful, enjoyed it very much.
Wish our guide Eddy was more helpful .
He was very knowledgeable, but rather moody.
He gets upset when we were late enjoying Petra.
Northern morocco tour, Morocco - Mar 13 - Mar 21, 2019
Brahim arranged for us to stay in beautiful little riads in the medinas which was perfect for us. Our driver, Mohammed, looked after us very well and was always prompt and courteous. We had local guides in Chefchaouen, Volubilis and Fez who were extremely knowledgeable about the history and local life of these very different areas of Morocco. The guide we had in Marrakech was probably knowledgeable but he was much more perfunctory in his explanations and seemed a bit tired of the job, but the... read more
Trip to costa rica, Costa Rica - Mar 20 - Mar 28, 2019
This was our first time to travel to Costa Rica and first time to try Kimkim.
We believe that our trip wouldn't have been as great if we didn't work with Adriana! She really was the hero of our trip!
Despite the short notice, Adriana delivered and amazing overall plan that made us enjoy Costa Rica to the fullest!
She was very great and fast in responding to our many requests and changes and was very accommodating of our demands.
We appreciated her help since we landed in the airport... read more
5 days in morocco: 4 itinerary options, Morocco - Mar 21 - Mar 28, 2019
Our driver and guide, Amine, was very friendly, knowledgeable and always on time. Since we spent all of our time with him over 8 days it was important to establish a good relationship. We had complete trust in Amine’s driving and ability to keep us safe.
He was able to explain the history and stories behind all that we saw.
Brahim was always very responsive and invited feedback on our experiences, even if it might be negative. He listened to our complaints about the Sahara camp and refunded... read more
Quito +amazon+galapagos , Ecuador - Mar 20 - Mar 28, 2019
This trip was amazing! Linda was so helpful from the very beginning. During the whole trip, I didn't have to worry about anything. There was always someone with a sign of my name waiting for me at the airport. There were different local guides to take care of our schedule. (Although I hope the local guide in Galapagos is more professional and helpful. She didn't give us any useful information about the tours, Galapagos in general, other than taking us from the hotel to the meeting points of... read more
Trip to morocco, Morocco - Mar 12 - Mar 21, 2019
Our entire experience with KimKim was effortless. From the initial and follow-up planning with Yassine to the final follow-up was a great experience. We were met at the Marrakesh airport by a young man named Ismael. We could not have asked for a better person to be our driver and to spend the trip with. He was engaging, courteous, helpful and a very cautious and competent driver. Interacting with him was one of the highlights of our trip. We checked into the Riad Melhoun which was... read more
Paris to london , France - Mar 19 - Mar 28, 2019
First of all, Sophie Bonaque did an amazing job setting up our trip. In designing the trip, she answering all of our questions and made the necessary and appropriate changes to our itinerary to set up the trip exactly the way we wanted.
The trip itself was fantastic! All the arrangements she made worked out perfectly. All the tours were great and all the tour guides and drivers met us at the right place and time.

Birkebeinerrennett then see a bit of norway, Norway - Mar 16 - Mar 22, 2019
When I was planning a trip to Norway for a mid-March Nordic ski race, my family (with two teen kids) knew we wanted to see more than the area between Rena and Lillehammer but didn't know anything about Norway or where to begin. I completely trusted the local knowledge of Vilde and Ingrid to make a recommendation for what more we should see in the time we had and without a car. The trip completely exceeded my expectations!
Several friends joined in after they heard the trip plan. We had... read more
Adventure bike , Cambodia
From the moment I emailed Kimkim to our departure from Phonm Pehn , it was perfection! I've previously been a travel agent and would highly recommend Kimkim Travel & Ms Thuy. We asked for a biking/beach adventure through Cambodia with 4-5 star accommodation, Ms Thuy nailed the entire itinerary. She sent the route we should ride/drive with suggestions of accommodation. The accommodation was outstanding! The transfers were seamless which makes life so much easier. Our guide from Siem Reap down... read more
atacama desert & lake district - 8 days , Chile - Mar 13 - Mar 23, 2019
Really fantastic experience booking my trip to Chile with KimKim. Oxana was very knowledgeable and helped me plan the perfect trip and every detail seemed to be taken care of. The transportation services were excellent and I was able to experience all the parts of Chile I had hoped to visit. I was even automatically checked in for domestic flights I had while in Chile, which was super convenient. The accommodations were also superb. My only quibble would be that some of the tours I was on... read more

Wildlife and cullture, Sri Lanka - Mar 3 - Mar 20, 2019
Our experience was great. Osi was very organized and friendly, conversed well. Itinerary was good, glad we went to Nuwara Eliya and not Hepatale. Would have been a very long drive to there from Kandy. Not sure if the drive up to Liptons Seat was worth the very long drive.
Except for the painfully long wagon ride Hiriwadunna was surprisingly good for such a touristed place.
We loved all the safaris. They all had their own charm. Watching the over 70 elephants come in for a drink at... read more
Explore sri lanka, Sri Lanka - Mar 12 - Mar 26, 2019
The trip was fantastic!
My only suggestion is that there is more communication between the tour organizer and the driver before the trip takes place. Sanjaya made a few amendments along the way, one being changing our train journey which meant we did not have pre-booked seats and had to stand the entire way! It was quite uncomfortable and not as enjoyable as it could have been. The drivers are the ones on the ground and know how things work so their knowledge needs to be taken into account.
Trip to colombia, Colombia - Mar 20 - Mar 21, 2019
Mairesol was our guide both days - to Guatape and the coffee plantation. Both days were great!
We loved climbing the stairs of El Penol and it was followed by a great meal, away from other tourists too!. The visit to the coffee farm was great. The views were tremendous and the food and coffee was tops.

Sorry it took me so long to get to providing feedback.
All round I had a really great trip - an unforgettable experience.
Starting with exploring various options through an internet search - your website struck me as really professional and the co-branding with well-known brands gave me the confidence to go with kimkim. Your responses to my initial inquiries about possible options were prompt, friendly and efficient - I felt the same about the booking process and your subsequent... read more
Delicious local food and beautiful, interesting spots in sri lanka., Sri Lanka - Mar 8 - Mar 16, 2019
My boyfriend and I had a fantastic trip in Sri Lanka. We did a nine-day tour, and Shalindra patiently worked with us to create the itinerary and answered all of our questions. Our driver/guide, Kapila, was very knowledgeable and accommodating whenever we wanted to change up the itinerary a bit. He also gave us suggestions and brought us to some local roadside stands for snacks like coconut roti and hoppers. Our hotels were fantastic and the breakfasts were really great, especially the Colombo... read more
Best of kathmandu and surrounding areas, Nepal - Mar 13 - Mar 24, 2019
My friend booked this trip and I joined last minute, the communication with Erin in the booking process was really difficult, which she blamed on the time difference but that was just an excuse. My time difference with Erin was only 2 hrs and 45 min as I'm not located in the US and apart from that, she could go more than 24 hrs to reply. She never even apologised for this.
Once I confirmed the trip I never even got a confirmation that my money arrived until we followed up, which was... read more
Exploring santiago & the atacama desert - 7 days, Chile - Mar 16 - Mar 22, 2019
Marina was very tentative from the very beginning. She’s very responsive and explained very details to us. At first I was a bit nervous using online travel agent since we didn’t have any in person interaction but after a while Marina made us feel very comfortable. I would recommend Kimkim to my friends and our future adventures.
Guys adventure weekend, Iceland - Feb 21 - Feb 25, 2019
Midgard Basecamp was a great place to stay. Friendly staff, and great food and drinks! Our guide Bjarni Guðmundsson was awesome! We spent a few days with Bjarni exploring the wilderness and he knew lots of great spots to show us. I would definitely recommend Midgard Adventure!
Highlights of jordan & israel: 9 days, Jordan - Mar 16 - Mar 25, 2019
This is a complicated review to write because I had very mixed feelings about our trip. Let’s start with the positive: Lena quickly put together the trip and patiently fielded endless questions from me. Our driver in Jordan, Moustafa, was truly fantastic and made our stay in his country very rich and special. The dinner with a local family in Petra was the best meal we ate on the entire trip and the family could not have been more welcoming and kind. It was an unforgettable experience. We... read more
Colombo one day tour., Sri Lanka - Mar 15 - Mar 15, 2019
Kuchara is the name of our tour guide.
3/15/2019 is the date of our cruise. When Perez Group arrived at the cruise port Princess have a bus that took us outside the port to meet our guide. Kuchara was not there and we are so worried because there are so many guides who is asking if you needed a tour. I have to call Sandun to locate our guide. My goodness, he was sitting in the bus and we did not see our name because the sign is just lying on the dashboard not posted on dashboard window. And... read more
Dogsledding adventure at trappers farm, Norway - Mar 16 - Mar 23, 2019
I'm so grateful to Ingrid, Kimkim and Trapper's Farm for helping me arrange the Norwegian adventure of my dreams. I wanted to chase the Northern Lights on a multi-day dogsledding expedition, and Trappers Farm delivered. The 4-day trip was highly personalized, authentic and filled with once in a lifetime opportunities. If you want to experience dog sledding off the beaten track, I highly recommend arranging a trip with them.

Trip to morocco, Morocco - Mar 8 - Mar 15, 2019
I visited Morocco 2 weeks ago with my 14 year old daughter. We had an amazing experience. We are truly pleased with the services provided by KimKim. The tour was arranged by Brahim. He had always provided timely, courteous responses to my questions and helped me every step of the planning process. We reached Marrakech later than scheduled due to flight delays. I had failed to inform Brahim of the delay. Brahim exhausted every resource available to him trying to make sure we were ok/ safe.... read more
5 days in patagonia, february, Patagonia - Feb 19 - Feb 25, 2019
Erin was a delight to work with. She was very prompt in responding to our questions, took our feedback on board and managed to put together our ideal itinerary. We had fairly limited time and quite a few things to fit in, but Erin managed it! Everything worked super well, all transfers on time and comfortable and the local partners she put us in touch with for the hiking equipment, lunches etc were also super lovely and helpful.
As 2 friends with very busy and quite stressful jobs in big... read more

oslo - bergen - tromsø | magic of the fjords & northern norway, Norway - Mar 9 - Mar 15, 2019
Ingrid did a wonderful job planning our trip. She was prompt, professional and thoughtful. We had limited time and wanted to fit in Oslo, Bergen, the Flam railway, a Fjord cruise, dog sledding and the Northern lights. It took some adroit and creative planning to fit all this in 5 days, and we simply could not have figured this out on our own, and I give Ingrid great credit for figuring out a travel itinerary where we could do all this without feeling rushed. Everything went smoothly thanks... read more
Trip to jordan, Jordan - Mar 19 - Mar 23, 2019
Why Jordan? Why not Jordan! What a wonderful trip we have just had to that exciting country.
From start (the booking) to finish ( saying goodbye to our experienced, eloquent, knowledgable guide, Mohammed) everything worked like clock work and nothing was too much trouble.
The people of Jordan are friendly , honest and always willing to help. The food was delicious especially the Kunafeh in downtown Amman!
The highlights are too many to mention them all so here are just a few;

Best of indonesia, Indonesia - Mar 10 - Mar 17, 2019
My Bali trip has been a dream. Beautiful island, warm and friendly local people, rich culture. Our local specialist Ayu had been so wonderful throughout the consultation and booking process. She advised and helped us book everything we needed/asked for to make sure we have a wonderful vacation. Our driver Krisna Arimbawa had been above and beyond our expectation. He was so friendly, resourceful, helpful and always with a big smile. Nusa Penida is so worth the trip to visit. Highly recommend... read more
Colombia perceptions cultural tour - 10 days, Colombia - Mar 1 - Mar 12, 2019
The arrangements for flights and hotels all worked perfectly. The guide we had for Bogota was extremely knolegeable about history, archaeology and art. In Villa de Leyva we had a thunderstorm but the guide substituted a talk on history and politics of Colombia. I didn't find the salt cathedral interesting. Guatavita was very beautiful but unfortunately there was no English speaking tour. San Agostin was particularly interesting, and the guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. Tatacoa... read more
A month in colombia , Colombia - Feb 7 - Mar 11, 2019
We enjoyed all of the trip. Our personal guides were all really informative, authentically and genuinely interested and passionate about their environments and willing to share their culture and lifestyle with us. To us, that is one of the best things about this sort of trip, and we were happy with your choices. It was a long trip, so there is much to recommend, and if I don't mention something, it doesn't mean we didn't love it! - I'm thinking of you Medellin with our great guide... read more
Trip to greece, Greece - Mar 6 - Mar 19, 2019
We can’t say enough praise for Tasos and Travel 12. From the very beginning he provided constant, consistent communicate throughout the booking process as well as the trip itself. He made it very easy to communicate with him and his team during our trip if we had any questions or needs. Having concluded our trip, it is evident Tasos is proficient in his area and took great care and put such detail in planning our trip. He genuinely cares about his clients and their experience. Tasos listened... read more

Trip to colombia, Colombia - Feb 18 - Feb 25, 2019
Natalia, and Kimkim, worked together with our group point person to facilitate our visiting many wonderful places in Colombia. We stayed in very comfortable hotels, were the staff made us feel at home.
Our guides added great interest to our visits to so many wonderful sites. In addition, the guides were really fun people to spend time with.
Everything went flawlessly, all of our check ins, check outs, getting picked up, getting dropped off, making connections.
For me this was a wonderful introduction to South America.
Machu picchu & short inca trail - 5 days, Peru - Mar 15 - Mar 21, 2019
My husband and I just returned from a lifetime trip to Peru where we both celebrated our birthdays! Everything went beautifully and according to plans. The service offered by Kim Kim and Peruvian Soul exceeded all our expectations, mostly regarding our three main contacts: Anne (Local Contact), Cesar (Guide) and Roberto (Driver).
Anne who was involved in the full logistics and planning was excellent since her very first contact with us, always very friendly, very helpful, very responsive,... read more
A taste of morocco: casablanca to marrakech - 9 days, Morocco - Feb 23 - Mar 10, 2019
We had a great trip. Brahim did a great job organizing and planning considering it was last minute. He was able to accommodate the things we wanted to do as most standard tours had a different itinerary. Having started in Tangier he really helped plan out an itinerary that worked for us. Tangier-Chefchaouen-Casablanca-Rabat-Meknès-Volubilis-Fes-Ifrane-Merzouga-Todra-Ouarzazate-Ait Benhaddou-Marrakesh. All in nine days. All of the accommodations were very comfortable and nice.

Trip to nepal, Nepal - Mar 12 - Mar 19, 2019
From been greeted at the airport, my guide, Tashi and driver set the standard of this trip, very high.
Our itinerary was not too manic, but ran like clockwork, with excellent driving, and time keeping, the manners were impeccable. We saw so much, hard to choose a favourite, for me , it was between an Everest Mountain flight, and rafting on river. trishuli.
The visit to Pashupatinath was an experience I wil never forget, made even more memorable by our excellent local guide ,Prajwol, what an... read more
Shopping, Vietnam - Mar 11 - Mar 16, 2019
On many of the locations that we visited the detailed information could show that walking in gravel and dirt pathways should be know so as to not ware your best footwear. Asking us if we had out swimwear when in-route to the Delta was not good. That river is very dirty and to swim for someone from the US is not even a question to ask. Also the car travel time to locations should be included so that trips to areas are not booked without reason. Many of the things advertised to tour in the... read more
