Beaches and sites, Sri Lanka - Sep 22 - Oct 5, 2018
Shalindra planned an awesome two week experience for us in Sri Lanka, adapting the itinerary to suit our needs and communicating very efficiently with us. He touched base with us throughout our trip to ensure we were having a good time and to see if there was anything else he could do to accommodate us.
Dhilshan was our guide and he ensured that we had an amazing trip. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he was knowledgeable and had a fantastic sense of humour.
Our accommodation was... read more
Nature and culture in romania: 15 days, Romania - Oct 1 - Oct 15, 2018
Our 15 day, self-drive tour of Romania was exceptional! Raluca and her team put together a terrific itinerary which brought us to a wide range of scenic, historic, urban and rural sights. In addition to the ‘must-see’ stops and historic town centers, the itinerary provided the opportunity to visit a variety of unique, out-of -the-way places like former monasteries, wooden and fortified churches, and castles and fortresses, all in varying states of repair. There were also great country drives... read more
Whiskey cycling trip, Ireland - Sep 30 - Oct 7, 2018
Hi! Fantastic trip, can’t say enough about Maurice; very courteous, responded very quickly to any concerns or questions. Excellent trip organizer. Only negative comment is that the written road directions provided need to be updated. For example., “ turn RIGHT leaving the Skibbereen heritage center parking lot” We’ll it’s actually a LEFT turn. So this happened on a few occasions where the GPS and written directions were in conflict. Who to believe? This added a challenging dimension to the... read more
Kathmandu inside out, Nepal - Oct 2 - Oct 13, 2018
This worked out great!
We got to have input into where we went and what we did and it was easy. I worked on line with Anura before the trip to set our schedule and work out what we wanted to see.
When we arrived they meet us at the airport and every thing worked really well. My wife's suitcase as delayed and they helped with getting it sorted and getting us back out to the airport to pick it up.
1. This was not a group tour. We did not ride a round on a bus and get herded from... read more
Discover the nakasendo trail, Japan - Oct 9 - Oct 14, 2018
Akko-San was an incredible guide - she literally anticipated our every need and was such a delightful, thoughtful person. She is truly perfection! We were all bowled over by her professionalism and warmth. It was a sad moment when we had to say goodbye.
The tour was an incredible once in a lifetime experience. The Nakasendo is fascinating and the post towns chosen for the tour were beautiful and interesting. The accommodations were terrific. The first night was quite rustic which... read more
Trip to iceland, Iceland - Oct 12 - Oct 16, 2018
Had a great time in Iceland for a sort visit. Only 4-5 days but included Circle, South Coast and Food tour, all great.
South africa leg, South Africa - Oct 9 - Oct 16, 2018
Carla was incredibly helpful, friendly, approachable, knowledgable, and adaptable to my changing requests. Even when I thought I was being annoying with my constant questions, I definitely never got that impression from her. I would absolutely use kimkim again, and would recommend Carla to anyone thinking of visiting South Africa.
Greek island cruise, Greece - Sep 27 - Oct 7, 2018
We wanted to explore some of the Greek islands as part of my conference trip to Thessaloniki, Greece. We were particularly interested in ancient history and archaeology. In addition to Crete, Vasilis suggested going to Santorini and Mykonos/Delos. The experience was fascinating, although a medicaine and minor back injury intervened. We particularly enjoyed Athens, where we stayed in the old city, old Chania and Akrotiri site on Santorini. Vasilis was very helpful keeping us updated and... read more
Trip to iceland, Iceland - Oct 8 - Oct 15, 2018
I procrastinated my trip planning to Iceland until it was a week before my departure and I decided to try Kimkim. Chris was pleasant to work with and the process was seamless. It took less than 2 days to complete the planning as I wasn’t very picky on what I wanted to do and just let Chris do his work.
Experience jordan tour - 8 days, Jordan - Oct 9 - Oct 15, 2018
Andy was very accommodating and was very good with the follow up. Once The trip was booked, we did not hear back from Andy or Kimkim. I wrote to them about days before the trip was to begin and at that time I received a handout of what to expect when we arrived in Amman. I wish the materials were forwarded earlier and without having to ask for them.
Group departure - everest base camp trek, Nepal - Sep 30 - Oct 12, 2018
Kathmandu lodging: Ngima's homestay
Trek dates: Sept 30 - Oct 11
I had the most amazing trek to EBC with Chhongba. The itinerary was set at a good pace and they took care of everything on the trip - from booking hotels and ordering meals to helping me change my flights when my schedule shifted around.
The once-in-a-lifetime views did not disappoint as we were lucky enough to have clear weather throughout my trek (not a cloud in the sky when I reached EBC and Kalapatar).... read more
The very best walks on corsica: 7 days, France - Oct 4 - Oct 13, 2018
The trip was very well-planned according to our requests. Lodging was good to very good. The people who picked up our luggage for transfers were always extremely punctual and reliable. Our only issue had both a good and bad side. Arriving the first week in October meant that there were no crowds, less traffic, and it was easy to get into restaurants. The bad news was that many things were already closed for the season and were unavailable. One glaring example was that when we went to... read more
Greek small ship tour, Greece - Sep 25 - Oct 6, 2018
Angeliki did a great job with the arrangements. The drivers were extremely reliable and helpful. It was too bad that the weather interfered with some of the excursions that we were most looking forward to. The hotel accommodations were very nice and well located. The local guides were well informed and entertaining. We really enjoyed the volcano tour at Santorini and of course the Acropolis and the other experiences we had. Angeliki was very diligent about keeping in touch and accommodating our needs.
Trip to morocco, Morocco - Oct 2 - Oct 11, 2018
We booked a 10 day trip to Morocco visiting many of the cities including Casablanca, Fez, Ouarzazate and Marrakesh. I was very pleased with the accommodations : Larbi booked us an awesome trip with really nice hotels and riads. Our hotel in Casablanca was brand new (1 month in operation) and our raids in Fez and Marrakesh were right in the heart of the medinas with great trip advisor reviews. Our driver Mubarak was very sweet and patient as well as knowledgeable about the areas we were... read more
Trip to india, India - Oct 1 - Oct 13, 2018
We were in Delhi and Agra for 6 days. We appreciate having good hotels. We appreciate having all the transportation provided, such as transfers from the airport to the hotel. We most appreciate being about to custom design a tour that was exactly what we wanted rather than having to fit into someone else's agenda.
We love the transportation with the women cab drivers. They are excellent! They inspire confidence. I applaud their bravery.
I enjoyed meeting Anna. She was great!
Group departure - manaslu circuit trek: group departures - 15 days, Nepal - Sep 24 - Oct 8, 2018
Our guide Wangchu and the two porters did a very good job. They made sure everything was taken care off. They were professional and friendly. We’ve been very lucky to have met them!
Trip to ecuador and galapagos, Ecuador - Sep 21 - Oct 8, 2018
We stayed 10 days in Ecuador and 8 days on Galapagos.
All was very good.
Linda planned us the exactly trip we asked her.
The guide who went with us, Marco, was very friendly, also for trip not planned.
We went to Quito, on Cotopaxi, Quilatoa Lagoon, Baños, Chimborazo, Guamote, Cuenca and Guayaquil. A great trip !
Than on Galapagos we stayed two days on San Cristobal, one day on Santa Cruz and the last 5 days on a very beautiful Cruise.
All the accomodation of our trip was fantastic.
We're enthusiastics of this beautiful experience.
Thanks Linda !

How many days should you spend in myanmar?, Myanmar - Sep 29 - Oct 13, 2018
Our three guides and three drivers in the areas of Mandalay, Pyin Oo Lwin, Bagan, Popa, Salay, Pindaya, Dalaw and Loikaw were all excellent. There was nothing we could fault them on. They gave us an insight into the lives and culture in each area we visited. They warmed to our Australian sense of humour and made our trip a lot of fun. All the various Hotels that we stayed in all staff couldn't do enough to please us. Our guides on the Pindaya Trek and Loikaw Village Trek interacted well... read more
One week in peru: 5 great itineraries, Peru - Sep 15 - Sep 22, 2018
Kristy was absolutely incredible! From planning the trip, to the level of communication we received during the trip, I felt well taken care of throughout the whole thing. Kristy was able to create a custom experience for a trip to Peru for my friend and I. No matter what we threw her way (new locations, different sights to see), she was able to revise our itenerary quickly each time while giving us real-time feedback on what she would recommend.
During the trip, my friend and I truly felt... read more
Manaslu and bhutan, Nepal - Sep 24 - Oct 12, 2018
Erin was great at organising the trip and was very quick with responding to questions and requests. The guide was very knowledgable, well mannered and paced the trek well. The porters were also excellent, very friendly and worked exceptionally hard without complaints. The trip itself was very good. The circuit was a quieter than some others and the scenery was excellent. Overall the kimkim experience was very good, the staff were amazing and the trek was outstanding.
Trip to india, India - Oct 7 - Oct 12, 2018
Very good experience. Bhupendra followed up all my wishes regarding the trip. I'm impressed of the scheduie we ended up with in such a limited travel period. Perfect! He also added the spice course in an indian home - that was one of the highlights of the tour. To experience real life is something I would have wanted for all "exotic" trips, but never would have asked for as part of a tour..
Only one thing that was really bad about this correspondance. I would have preferred to send normal... read more
Sri lanka trip, Sri Lanka - Sep 3 - Sep 11, 2018
A large part of our trip was really great. We very much enjoyed the ancient sites and safaris. The Ecolodge and hiking in the rainforest were both incredible experiences. We did have a couple things we were quite frustrated with:
Our driver for the most part was good- he got us to where we needed to go safely. I left my wallet at a hotel in a previous city and he arranged to get it back for me which was incredibly helpful. However, he kept bringing us to these terrible tourist traps where he... read more
Highlights of vietnam - 9 days, Vietnam - Sep 29 - Oct 7, 2018
Overall, the trip was great. I would appreciate more details prior to the trip. Mike was great but he wasn’t needed the entire time. I didn’t know we would have a full time tour guide. We didn’t really need that. We would have preferred 2 hotel rooms and might have paid extra at a few sites to have that. Again, we didn’t know in advance what we had. In Hanoi and Hoi An, the room was way too small for 3 people, especially Hoi An since it was 3 nights. I might have settled for a lower... read more
Trip to greece, Greece - Oct 3 - Oct 11, 2018
We had a fabulous trip and were able to relax and enjoy every step of the way thanks to kimkim and Tasos. I was nervous at first using a travel service that I couldn't find many reviews for, but it couldn't have been better. The planning process was easy and fun, with an email exchange with Tasos to find the right mix of active/relaxing/cultural activities. He found great hotels for us and arranged all transfers. In the midst of planning, the ferry schedule changed and Tasos alerted us right... read more
Best you can do in 5 days, Nepal - Oct 8 - Oct 14, 2018
Ningma and Lhakpa gave me an unforgettable week heli-trekking to EBC in just a week! The highlight was the stop at Kalu Pattar in brilliant sun - I was lucky with the weather which on a short trek can make a difference but NMMT did absolutely everything possible to make it the best experience with seamless booking and organisation at every stage and Lhakpa and I had a lot of fun being first into every teahouse! A prospective client should also look into the huge array of social work and... read more
View gorillas in uganda, Uganda - Oct 1 - Oct 7, 2018
The trip was fantastic driving from Rwanda through Uganda the experience seeing the people, small towns was wonderful. The Gorilla Trekking was much harder than we thought at 7,500 ft above sea level. We live at sea level. Our idea was doing the Habitational on the first day and a regular trek the following day...bad idea as we were very sore after a 10 hour up and down hills including 4 hours following the gorilla family. Following day we just bailed out of the trek as we needed the rest,... read more
India side trip, India - Sep 26 - Oct 4, 2018
Priya was very responsive to my questions and guidance. 2 days before we plan to book the trip the floods hit Kerala and we had to significantly change the whole schedule. Priya was very creative and responsive. My wife and I were very pleased with the tour. we were dependent on her recommendations to guide our experience
Jordan: amman, petra and wadi rum - 4 days, Jordan - Sep 26 - Sep 30, 2018
Petra was great and we all enjoyed that. I was disappointed with Wadi Rum and the organization/lack of information of what we were doing and its duration. For example, we were told we should leave Petra early to get to wadi rum, thinking there was a lot to do. After getting there around 11, we sat around for over an hour not knowing what was going on. We then went on our jeep/camel ride for a few hours and got back around 4 with nothing to do til dinner. Our driver told us he was picking us... read more
Trip to iceland, Iceland - Oct 5 - Oct 12, 2018
Zeynep helped plan our wonderful adventure. The map she provided was highlighted with sights to visit and was our bible.
Trip to iceland, Iceland - Oct 5 - Oct 12, 2018
Zeynep created a fantastic trip for us. The accommodations were all very nice; the detailed map was very, very helpful; and the suggested sights were mostly spectacular and unique. Our experience of Iceland was just fantabulous. I enjoyed most the west and south coasts. Although the 'golden circle' was nice, it was not as interesting and the west coast and the glaciers to the south.
Trip to iceland, Iceland - Oct 5 - Oct 12, 2018
I had spent weeks trying to plan a trip to maximize time in Iceland for 5 people. I stumbled across the kimkim site and was assigned Zeynep as our specialist. She crafted our trip the way we wanted and from there the arrangements fell into place (meaning Zeynep did all the work!). With my busy schedule, I did not have the time to investigate each selection - I trusted Zeynep and she did not let us down.
Everything about the trip from the moment we landed exceeded our expectations. We... read more
East africa, Ethiopia - Sep 29 - Oct 9, 2018
Our guide Elayas was simply superb. We were greatly surprised and excited about the rich scenery, history and traditions in Ethiopia . Evenings of traditional dancing, and foods were an unexpected bonus. The ritual coffee ceremony almost every day was most appreciated, giving us a welcome boost. Local markets were festinating & robust , especially in Lalibela. The people everywhere were friendly and helpful.
Everest panorama trek, Nepal - Oct 6 - Oct 11, 2018
We spent 6 days hiking around Annapurna with Sabin and it was an absolutely incredible experience! I take home memories and friendships that I expect to last a lifetime.
This was my first trekking experience and I have never had to challenge myself so much. But it was worth every painful step. The area and sights and views are absolutely stunning! My experiences meeting people from all over the world along the way will stay with me forever.
Sabin was an amazing guide!!! I don't think the... read more
Oslo to bergen fjord adventure, Norway - Oct 4 - Oct 10, 2018
We are so pleased to have used this service when booking our trip. Ingrid and the team delivered an excellent program that perfectly suited our travel plans. It was a seamless process and took all of the guesswork out of the holiday. Very reasonable pricing as well. Thanks so much for all your help
3 weeks | the best of norway , Norway - Sep 9 - Oct 3, 2018
Ingrid was very helpful fight throughout the trip with additional requests we had. The planning and ticketing went like clockwork and was thus very easy to complete the journey. No problems were encounted.
Rwanda, Rwanda - Sep 23 - Sep 29, 2018
Agnes was excellent at helping me plan my trip to Rwanda. She was helpful in answering my questions regarding which country to see the gorillas and provided several itinerary and pricing options. She even flew in from Uganda to meet me at the airport!
Jean Claude was my driver/guide. he was lovely and excellent company. All activities were well organised. Accomodation was all very nice... Villa Gorilla was awesome!!!! and the best food of the trip! Amazing staff and great... read more
Trip to iceland, Iceland - Oct 3 - Oct 10, 2018
Our trip to Iceland was amazing! So well planned by Preeti and team. Everything on the itinerary was detailed and worked really well. The timing of drives and sightseeing was perfect. Also, the pre-booked tours were very interesting and provided us with an experience that we would have otherwise not had.
We were also very happy with the accommodation and included breakfasts which really saved us time each morning. Only Hotel Hilda in Reykjavík was a very tiny room. However, the... read more
Pikey peak from dhap - 10 days, Nepal - Sep 27 - Oct 4, 2018
It was the most delightful and impressive experience from the moment I made first contact with the company to the moment I was dropped off at Kathmandu airport after the trekking trip, and every step in between worked out exactly as planned. All questions and concerns were quickly and fully addressed; attention to details was second to none.
My guide Phurba and porter Lakpa were the best I could have asked for. Not only were they excellent at what they were supposed to do, they were such... read more
Three passes trek: the ultimate 19-day trek in the everest region of nepal, Nepal - Sep 21 - Oct 7, 2018
At first we weren't so sure of how the trip would go, our guide Ang Gelu was very quiet and his english not great and Tira (not sure if that's how you spell it) our porter, was tiny and couldn't speak English at all... and wrong impressions is how we started the trip. Ang Gelu was just outstanding, well organized, had enormous knowledge over the mountains, the paths, what was safe and what was not. How to properly acclimatize. He was always on time, always ready for help and just amazing all... read more
Trip to morocco, Morocco - Sep 27 - Oct 4, 2018
It was a wonderful experience and I would recommend KimKim to anyone planning to visit Morocco. My driver, Redoune, was fantastic and got me safely through the interary without any problems whatsoever. Brahim did a great job advising me on what to do with the time I had.
From the forrest to the sea, Romania - Sep 21 - Oct 4, 2018
Cristi was amazing...very knowledgeable and helpful and just good company.
I loved the time I spent over at the Black Sea...hotel wasn't the best. My room was near the lobbly and the elevator so it was kind of noisy.
Bucharest is an amazing city. I enjoyed all my time spent there.
The Equus Silvania was great. Food, people, lodging and horses were all great. Didn't get to ride as much as I thought I would though.
Guesthouse Daniela was not the best. Food, and Lodging were not... read more
India's golden triangle: a local perspective - 5 days, India - Oct 1 - Oct 8, 2018
Overall the planning and booking of the trip was great. I really appreciated how fast the trip came together since I started planning this trip about a week in advance of the start date.
That said, I wish there had been faster communication. It seemed to take about a day to get a response. I sense that if I had been able to jump on a call at some point we could have locked down the tour much more quickly.
Best short treks in nepal - trekking itineraries ranging from 3 to 10 days, Nepal - Sep 26 - Oct 1, 2018
We had such a short time in Nepal - only 5 days - but a wonderful experience thanks to Sudershan's expert planning. He was very patient as we emailed back and forth trying to decide what kind of trip suited us and always replied very promptly. It was a very stress free experience as we were met at the airport by Sudarshan, our guide Sanu and driver Amrit, and were whisked off to the first night of our 3 day Balthali Trek. All 3 nights accommodation were very comfortable with excellent food... read more
Sri lanka, Sri Lanka - Sep 21 - Oct 6, 2018
Our driver Thasim was exceptional - made an effort to accommodate our requests and suggested other activities we may have been interested in. Went over and above any expectations we could have possibly wished for.
So many great experiences during our trip!
7 days japan experience with multi-day hike, Japan - Oct 1 - Oct 7, 2018
Our trip was mix of cosmopolitan Tokyo and tranquil, green Japanese countryside along the Kumano Kodo trail. Our itinerary started and ended in Tokyo, with its skyscrapers, nightlife, busy streets and great food. In between we took Shinkansen to the southern part of Japan, where time slowed down: Breathtakingly beautiful vistas, forests, rice and tea fields, traditional Japanese inns, fantastic food and relaxing natural hotspring spa’s. Most important: hospitable & very kind people. Truly an unforgettable trip.
7 days japan experience with multi-day hike, Japan - Oct 1 - Oct 7, 2018
Our 7-day trip in Japan was amazing. Thanks for Mirka for putting together a flawless trip. The contrasts between modern and ancient Japan made this an unforgettable trip. Too many highlights to easily summarize: Great hike along the Kumano Kodo trail, amazing food, fabulous onsens (hot springs), great Japanese hospitality and high energy Tokyo neighborhoods all made this trip.
Day 1: Evening arrival in Tokyo (Mitsui Garden Hotel), followed by a quick hunt for late night food that led us... read more
Patagonia trip, Argentina - Sep 19 - Oct 2, 2018
We were on a trip to Patagonia and toured around Argentina and undertook a number of experiences. All of these were incredible and while there were some things that slightly detracted from the experience we were very pleased overall with the experience.
We happened to arrive at a time when a strike was scheduled which meant one of our days had to be moved around. This meant we stayed a day longer in El Calafate and had to find something to entertain us whilst we were there, which we managed... read more
Best summer hikes in the slovenian alps, Slovenia - Sep 25 - Sep 30, 2018
I really appreciated the tips on what to do in Ljubljana (bike trip and a food tour).
Miha was very nice and responsive when I contacted him to plan a four-day trip to Slovenia on short notice. He helped me decide where to stay and how to allot the four days and set up a guide for two of the days.
Our guide, Bostjan, was incredibly nice, interesting and helpful. It was so nice not to have to worry about driving places and how to get there. I loved seeing Piran but would have liked more time... read more
Almalfi coast , Italy - Sep 24 - Sep 30, 2018
Trip to the Almalfi Coast was amazing! Carmelo was super helpful in planning and tailoring the trips to our needs. The agency was also very quick to respond during our stay in Italy and was very accommodating in helping us work out some last minute changes to our trip. It was truly an unforgettable experience in a beautiful place!
Norway's ultimate fjord adventure - 15 days, Norway - Aug 23 - Sep 6, 2018
Planning a trip with an in-country advisor just makes sense. Ingrid Thornes, our trip consultant for a two week trip in Norway, met and exceeded our expectations. Being from Bergen, she was able to give good first-hand advice and proved more reliable than a guide book.
We outlined our preferences for types of hotels, modes of transport, and places we wanted to include on our visit. Ingrid evaluated our ideas, made suggestions and then delivered an itinerary that we collaborated on for... read more
Trip to italy, Italy - Sep 25 - Sep 27, 2018
Had an amazing time on our short, self-guided bike trip through Tuscany. The area is beautiful, especially the stretch from the outskirts of Florence to Radda in Chianti. Lots of wineries with consistently good wine. Everything was well coordinated in terms of bike delivery, luggage transport, and hotel booking. Had some initial difficulty with the bikes and with navigation but everything went smoothly afterwards.
Photography tour , Ethiopia - Sep 23 - Oct 4, 2018
Its has been amazing 12 days trip with Mihiret being a tour guide and organized by Marco.
Ethiopia is not an easy country when it comes to street and people photography. However every visit to a location was organized with much knowledge, expertise and love., and as a result I got thousands of great photos.
Mihiret speaks local languages, knows, traditions, all do's and what is also very important - dont's.
Mongolia, Mongolia - Sep 29 - Oct 5, 2018
The trip was amazing. Can’t describe how good it was. We had the most fantastic guide (Oyu) and driver (Banzar) and really got immersed into the Mongolian culture. Amazing place with so much scenery, lots of driving but you need to be prepared for that going to Mongolia anyway. Everyone was so kind and wanted to do what they could to help us and make our trip special. Passed some others on trips but ours was quite private so didn’t have much communication.
Kimkim was very organised and we knew what to expect and everything ran very smoothly.
Golftrip, France - Sep 23 - Sep 29, 2018
Estelle from sun e bikes was great and very helpful. The staff at the restaurants: Fort in Marseille, La Fourchette in Avignon were very pleasant and good experiences. Heily Lucullus in Avignon was very good and our owner/hostess was very nice. Eating dinner outside at Les Fin Roches in CDP had excellent ambiance. CDP itself was just OK. Sylvie at La Nerth gave a great tour although a little rushed since we were a little late. But she spent a lot of time with us in the the tasting... read more
Affordable comfortable authentic masai mara safari not luxury, Kenya - Sep 16 - Sep 27, 2018
Hi Susan and Kimkim,
Re: star ratings above: Susan was very nice (five stars) and booking on your site is excellent (five stars). I put three stars because of value of trip to us.
My computer has been in repair but I’m up and running so here is our review.
Accommodations and Sites on Each Stop:
Fairview Hotel: Wonderful. We would love to have rested up here for first day as you know.
Sites: Baby elephants and giraffe fun to see. Suspect in hindsight that a drive through the... read more
The best of greece , Greece - Sep 12 - Sep 28, 2018
Thanks to kimkim and Travel12 for an exceptionally well planned and amazing vacation in Greece.
The attention to detail was most impressive.
I was a little nervous as I was traveling alone and had an ambitious schedule. Christos
ensured I was able to visit all the places I wanted to and got some time to relax and enjoy the islands. Taking my preferences into consideration.
The route was well planned and hotels selected were in close proximity to tourist attractions and pickup points for... read more
Santorini, Greece - Sep 28 - Sep 28, 2018
First let me start by saying I can't give enough praise to KimKim and our local specialist Vasilis in Greece. We had a change in our ships itinerary at the last minute do to weather and one message to Vasilis in hours had a tour change for us, he was just amazing and a pleasure to work with. The tours were wonderful and the service impeccable. The tour we had in Rhodes and the guide, Tsabika Geor Hatinikola was fantastic. Tsabika was not only very pretty and a walking book full of knowledge,... read more
Highlights of croatia: zagreb to dubrovnik - 8 days, Croatia - Sep 25 - Oct 3, 2018
Robert helped us with everything and did an amazing job. Our hotels were just as we had hoped and our itinerary was perfect for our needs. All along our travels, Robert would check on us and make sure there were no glitches. We had a rental car which he had arranged, someone to pick us up at the airport, deliver the rental car, pick up the car when we were done and someone to drive us to the airport. There was no detail left undone! We loved Croatia, especially Dubrovnik. Our vacation was wonderful!
Gokyo trek, Nepal - Sep 12 - Sep 24, 2018
Had a wonderful time trekking Annapurna Base Camp and Muldai Peak with my awesome guide Nawang. Raj, Erin and Amanda were super helpful and accommodating as plans changed, and made all the logistics effortless. Truly an unforgettable trip!
Best of the dalmatian coast - two-ish week croatia/adriatic itinerary , Croatia - Sep 24 - Oct 3, 2018
From the start of planning until our return home, Veselka was the most important asset to our amazing time in Croatia. Starting with a general idea of what we wanted to see during our brief 10 day trip overseas, she was able to put together an itinerary that allowed us to see everything we wanted to and so much more. Each question I had during the planning process was answered promptly and thoroughly. She would check in with me at every step of the way to ensure every detail of the itinerary... read more
Foodie, artist, fashion, history lover, Greece - Sep 5 - Sep 26, 2018
Christos, my local specialist couldnt have been more responsive and communicative. It seems that he works 24/7 as he got back to me so quickly all the time! And also, very importantly, I feel we got very good value from them. All of the guides were first rate, very knowledgeable, delightful, and went the extra mile. We really enjoyed the Vintage Tour of Crete,Cretan Village Tour and Cretan Food Tour. We spent two weeks in Crete, going to Heraklion, Chania and Elounda which was perfect. We're already thinking about a return visit we liked it so much!
Highlights of croatia: zagreb to dubrovnik - 8 days, Croatia - Sep 25 - Oct 3, 2018
Robi was in daily contact with us to insure that we were enjoying ourselves in Croatia. We felt the itinerary which had been presented provided appropriate opportunities to experience each stop during our 8 days in Croatia yet allowing some time to explore on our own. The suggested accommodations were outstanding. We would certainly recommend Kim Kim and Robert to anyone traveling to Croatia.
Classic inca trail - 5 days, Peru - Aug 25 - Aug 29, 2018
Once again another absolutely amazing trip with Quechua Treks. Our guide, Wilson was amazing, as were every single one of our porters (whose names, unfortunately I can't remember). Wilson was a gem, took extra time with my daughter, who has never been to Peru. He got some truly exceptional photos of us along the trek. The planning was seamless and tons of fun thanks to all the hard work from Haley and crew at Quechua Treks. The food was beyond amazing, I always look forward to the food... read more
Trip to nepal, Nepal - Sep 17 - Sep 26, 2018
Had a great time.
Beautiful country & beautiful people.
Iberia trip, Morocco - Sep 19 - Sep 24, 2018
Kim Kim and specifically our contact Brahim was amazing! I had several different questions that came up before the trip and even during and he got back to me immediately and was very thorough and helpful. I would absolutely recommend Kim Kim!
Morocco trip, Morocco - Sep 9 - Sep 15, 2018
Overall, the trip was amazing. Morocco is really one of the places that I would want to go again. It was my first time using KimKim as I would usually travel in the Europe on my own, without having a tour guide. However, since we are a bit unfamiliar with how things are in Morocco, and the limited usage of English there, we decided to have a travel guide there.

Olivier was very helpful, was quick to respond and booked an unforgettable trip for us. Thank you!
Bhutan discovery, Bhutan - Sep 22 - Sep 29, 2018
Very enjoyable and well organised trip. Thank you Vishal. Hotels exceeded my expectations. Guide Younten was very effective and looked after everything without fail. I did not catch everything he told us but that was mainly due to my deafness. The driver Sonam was safe and alert at all times and despite challenging mountain roads I never felt nervous. The Hikes were just wonderful although the altitude and my old age made them fairly tough.
We sometimes wished for additional activities... read more
Pikey peak trek, Nepal - Sep 22 - Oct 1, 2018
Hi ! We did the Pikey peak and Solu trek package. It was even better than we expected. Amanda our local specialist really understood what we wanted, I asked for a trek with the least amount of tourist and she delivered. We did not see any tourist until the end of the trek, so our entire trek was nature and the locals (Sherpa coulture). Very sweet people, warm and very hospitable. We stayed in tea houses and they were great. Our guide Pemba was really great, he knew his stuff well and was... read more
Trip to france, France - Sep 23 - Sep 29, 2018
Our Trip to Provence and The French Riveria was great. Alex our guide and driver was fantastic. Very professional but friendly, excellent driver, so knowledgeable on the history and geography of the area and very flexible when we had requests for small variations. Our hotel accommodations were all very good - the last one - Hotel La Perouse was fabulous - great way to end our holiday. Regarding the activities we partook in - we all thought the hike in Calanques National Park was great but in... read more
Trip to bulgaria, Bulgaria - Sep 13 - Sep 23, 2018
The trip was Bulagaria and Romania. The guide Theodora in Bulgaria was very good and knowledgable and exposed us to the culture and history. Romania is a beautiful country and Transylvania very scenic. The castles, medieval Sibiu and Sighiasora was beautiful. Had some issues with the driver and guide in Romania. I would rate Romania portion a 3 star
Myanmar highlights, Myanmar - Sep 25 - Sep 30, 2018
Anne was great! My initial request was vague but Anne pulled together the perfect itinerary.
Salvador brazil, Brazil - Sep 4 - Sep 8, 2018
This was the second trip we arranged through kimkim. This time we had very short notice. Rodrigo arranged a day tour for me alone in Salvador while my husband worked. I went to Praia do Forte beach + Tamar sea turtle project. He suggested going with a group tour since they are more interesting than being driven around alone.
He was right. Picked me up on time at the hotel. Great music and videos during the trip. The guide even spoke English (I was told not to expect this). They... read more

I would like to wish everybody that made my trip so memorable a HUGE thank you. Thank you KimKim for the ease of which you made booking and organizing my recent trip to Peru and Bolivia.
I had been wanting to do this trip for a long time but had previously been put off just thinking of all the organisation it would take. One day I happened to type in to google 'Peru and Bolivia' and their 11 day itinerary popped up, which was exactly what I wanted to do and see. Once I contacted KimKim... read more
