Where to start - this trip was perfection!!! · Costa Rica - Mar 10 - Mar 21, 2020
Where to start! This trip was perfection. From the greeting at the airport by an incredibly knowledgeable driver who gave us such insight into the area that we already felt at home by the time we arrived at Tabacon. Every tour guide we had was on time, extremely informative (not only about the specific adventure but about the country) and each one had an amazingly warm personality. We saw every animal that we had hoped to see and some we didn't even know about! We started in Arenal; then to... read more
Honeymoon in Argentina during COVID-19 · Argentina - Mar 8 - Mar 18, 2020
My husband I are traveled to Argentina for our honeymoon and Emi helped us plan the perfect itinerary. Emi had great suggestions for our getaway, and accommodated all of our requests. Unfortunately the end of your trip was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and we had to return home sooner than anticipated, but we were able to enjoy the time that we had. We thoroughly enjoyed our private tour of Buenos Aires with Federico, our private tour of the Brazilian side of Iguazu Falls. Mendoza was... read more

Oliver was great managing the whole COVID19 situation, ensured I had the most uptodate information so I could make an informed decision to leave as soon as i possibly could. And for that, I am incredibly grateful to his situational awareness. Even though I couldn't enjoy everything Colombia had to offer, I was well looked after with really great accommodation and itinerary options. Thank you Oliver!
Wonderful cycling (South Island of New Zealand) · New Zealand - Mar 1 - Mar 15, 2020
I wrote to Kim Kim re cycling in NZ having some ideas of what we wanted (and what we did not want). Valentin responded immediately and through some correspondence we planned 2 weeks cycling in Sth Island of New Zealand. He understood our needs and catered to our preferences. The choice of trails, accommodation and attention to detail was fantastic (the trip itself was amazing, so varied in scenery and types of trails. We loved the small towns, the unique accommodations and people, having our... read more
Excellent Service · Colombia - Mar 11 - Mar 19, 2020
We cannot be more impressed with the exceptional service provided by Margoth @ Aracanto on our Colombia trip. We found her on kimkim.com to help us put together a 10-day itinerary. She promptly responded to our emails, eloquently answered every little query and request and gave excellent recommendations and options for every aspect of the trip. Our itinerary was unfortunately truncated by the COVID pandemic travel restrictions but we have nothing but praise for Margoth’s concern and support... read more
Chile March 2020 · Chile - Mar 5 - Mar 12, 2020
This is the 14th day of my isolation. I left Santiago. a city then filled with smiling friendly people going about their chores and lives. to return to a place filled with fear and going deeper in civic shutdown, where some are even being encouraged to tell on one another for alleged breaches of the new normal. And I am so thankful for the ten wonderful days we spent in Chile with all of you looking out for us.
I can truly say that our visit owes much of its magic to the care and... read more
Fantastic 21 Day trip · Vietnam - Feb 27 - Mar 18, 2020
Although Andy's name is listed as our local specialist - in reality all credit goes to Ha! We had never worked with a tour company before, but KimKim came highly recommended by my brother who had used them last year. Ha worked so closely with us in the planning - showing genuine flexibility and modifying the program to our exact specifications. We were in Vietnam and Cambodia with another couple - and had a wonderful trip. Even as the pandemic spread - Ha made sure we were safe and... read more
Trekking and tiger safari · Nepal - Mar 12 - Mar 22, 2020
We did a semi custom trip (11 day) for three with some moderate trekking in Annapurna region, tiger safari in Bardia NP, with some cultural activities in Kathmandu. The trip was well organized and flexible. I only provided some general guidance on my desires and Chhewang made suggestions and tied it all together after some feedback from me. We all enjoyed the trekking and the tiger safari, where we we able to see 4 tigers in the wild over 2 days.

Kim Kim exceeded expectations · Costa Rica - Feb 22 - Feb 29, 2020
We had a great time in Costa Rica. Carlos did an excellent job organizing our trip. All of the hotels were wonderful and check-in was seamless. I am usually a do-it yourself travel planner, but would highly recommend KimKim for a work free trip if you would like to go multiple places.
Fantastic Trip to Vietnam! February 27-March 17 · Vietnam - Feb 27 - Mar 18, 2020
We recently returned from an amazing 3-week trip to Vietnam, with a short detour to Cambodia. Ha at KimKim was so incredibly responsive in helping us plan the trip and continuing to customize it for us all the way to the end. She made it absolutely seamless with guides and drivers greeting us exactly as planned, and the hotels she selected more than met our expectations.
Some highlights were riding around Hanoi on a motorbike (driver provided!), biking and cooking classes in Hoi An (and... read more

Thank you kimkim. I had an amazing time in Russia.
The dealings I had with kimkim in planning my trip - 18 days encompassing Saint Petersburg, Moscow, Suzdal and Vladimir - were amazingly efficient. Their responses were quick and detailed. It was great being able to deal all the time with people in Moscow and Saint Petersburg who were on the ground and able to provide quick support in those very rare moments in a trip where something goes off the rails.
Beyond Saint Petersburg, I really had... read more
Great Local Specialist - Disappointing reaction and accomodation to global COVID-19 emergency · South Africa - Mar 8 - Mar 21, 2020
I was very impressed with Stephanie. She was wonderful and i would reccommend her and book with her again. We were loving our trip but then the Government of South Africa declared a national disaster and the Canadian Government ordered all Canadians abroad to come home so we needed to leave our trip early and forego our 2 nights at Addo Elephant park, our 3 night safari at Hlosi and our flight on safair back to Cape Town. Given the circumstances, I am extremely shocked and upset that we... read more

Our first driver Otto with Desafio was great! He practiced Spanish with us the whole time so we could converse better the rest of the time. Loved our white water rafting with Steven as our guide. Then Otto safely got us to the Baldi Hotel with s restaurant recommendation in LaFortuna—LaStreet—which we tried one night—wonderful. Really enjoyed the Hot Springs at the hotel! Had a nice hike on the lava flows of the volcano and then a nice dinner at Tabacon Springs and enjoyed their springs... read more

Our guide in Yangon, Linn Linn and our bike guide Nay (apologies for spelling) were both excellent, well informed, helpful and pleasant to be with. The transfers, accommodation, food and cycling were great. The amazing temples in Bagan and the view from Popa Mountain were beautiful as were the sunsets and the river cruise.
Perfect planning, perfect execution, perfect vacation · Costa Rica - Mar 9 - Mar 16, 2020
Everything Adriana planned was exactly what we were looking for - we somehow managed to zip line, snorkel, go rafting, AND lay around on the beach. Schedules went smoothly, and when there was an update to our excursion (because of the tides), a new voucher was delivered to our hotel and we didn't miss a beat.
This was an incredible vacation. The transportation was great, the hotels were lovely, and the activities were perfect. I can't imagine planning another trip like this to Costa Rica without Adriana's guidance.
I cannot recommend this service highly enough.
Costa Rica · Costa Rica - Mar 12 - Mar 19, 2020
Kimkim made my trip to Costa Rica a dream come true. I will be using them for my next trip—for sure!! My transportation, hotels and activities were first class, and they were not possible without Kimkim’s guidance and expertise.

We were soooo impressed with the trip. Everything went smoothly. All guides and drivers were early and eagerly awaiting us. ALL Colombians were so friendly to us.
We felt safe and well taken care of the whole trip. We had a pretty aggressive agenda but enjoyed discovering beautiful Columbia visiting many different regions. The trip to Chingaza was a great last minute addition and our guide Juanita was fabulous. We LOVED Medellin region and especially the commune 13 visit- our guide... read more
Awesome family trip to Colombia · Colombia - Feb 23 - Mar 2, 2020
We had an amazing family trip to Colombia thanks to Margoth and her team. We were a party of 7, including children and grandparents, and we wanted to get a taste of everything that Colombia has to offer in an 8 day trip. Already at the planning stage Margoth completely understood what we were looking for in terms of activities, culture, nature, hotels and comfort. She put together a great trip for us and we just had to click “yes” and everything was booked and organised for us. Our trip... read more

Patagonia - Chile and Argentina · Argentina - Mar 8 - Mar 18, 2020
Erin was wonderful to work with for this trip! She was extremely helpful with planning everything and making a trip that included what I was looking for and in the budget I was working with. She was very patient with me and answered all questions that I had along the way.
The times in Torres de Paine was amazing, with great weather and beautiful views. Perito Moreno glacier was also amazing!
I was thrilled with my trip. Thank you again to Erin for all your work in helping to make it happen!!

great trip tp the galapagos · Galapagos Islands - Mar 10 - Mar 16, 2020
We had a wonderful trip to the Galapagos! the trip went smooth and we always had a guide to meet us at different islands upon arrival. Our guides were helpful and great at rectifying situations. For instance, my boyfriend and I were going to go on a snorkel/dive session. He was going to dive while I snorkeled, but we were going to be on the same boat. For some reason, I was instructed by one of the boat companies to go on a different boat. I assumed we were meeting together but thought it was... read more

Great Experience for Personalized Icelandic Vacation · Iceland - Mar 8 - Mar 13, 2020
Anuj was a great resource in helping to customize our Iceland vacation to match our expectations throughout the planning process. After our trip began, having Anuj supporting our trip was invaluable. Our trip was to the northern part of Iceland in mid-March which meant we had to adapt to weather, road closures, etc. and Anuj was there with us each step of the way helping us to cancel and rebook lodging, tours, etc. as we adapted our itinerary in real time to accommodate the weather.

Julio was an excellent tour guide who grew up in the Cusco region and was like traveling with a family friend. He was knowledgeable about the various ruins we visited and provided great advice on dietary choices and knew when to push and when to back off on physical challenges with the high altitude. Our five days of hiking allowed for a good understanding of the region along with the natural resources, the local food and the people. This trip was customized to our desires by KimKim and I... read more
This was a 5 plus star experience! · Peru - Mar 7 - Mar 14, 2020
This was a 5 plus star experience and completely exceded my expectations. Steve worked with me with my times and desires. For example, I had no desire to spend time in Lima and wanted to maximize my time in the Jungle. Steve worked it out. We customized our time to spend it in the Sacred Valley, Macchu Pichu, and the have a jungle experience. We arrived and were greeted by our guide Aldo and Paul, the driver. They were awesome and were always doing all they could to make our experience... read more

Top notch service and experience · Costa Rica - Feb 27 - Mar 9, 2020
We had top notch service with kimkim and have already recommended them to several friends. I was a bit leery using this service without firsthand knowledge of what we were getting into. But I was worried for nothing. Kristy put together a great 12 day Costa Rican itinerary for our family of five, including three teenagers! And Monica booked all

Our Pura Vida guide in Arsenal, Christian was awesome and we were the only two people in our group that included hikes of Arenal and the hanging bridges.
Every aspect of our itinerary either met or exceeded our expectations. The one exception would be the night tour in Monteverde. We were not the only ones to say it was over-hyped. There were over 100 tourists in groups of 6-8 walking the same paths that reminded me of a “snipe” hunt.
Lodging at Arsenal was superb! Great complimentary breakfast and on-site hot spring.

Two weeks in east Australia by Judie Yamamoto and Charley Mullally
Overall, our trip to Australia, arranged by Jasmine through KimKim, was excellent. The accommodations were comfortable and for the most part spacious, modern, and conveniently located, quite more luxurious than we’d expected on the “mid-level” plan we had requested. Transportation (airport and hotel ground pickups as well as our three flights in Australia) went very smoothly, spoiling us for the return home when we had to... read more

My husband and I are avid travelers and we tend to do all the booking, organizing and trip planning on our own, however I had recently come across Kimkim's website so we decided to give them a shot.

We were paired with our amazing coordinator, Hsu Hlaing, who was patient with me and answered every single question I rose, which... read more

He has a great command of English, He was willing to stop to allow my wife to take roadside photos. His road skills were excellent and we never fear for our life while he was driving.

The trip to Peru was fantastic. Cesar Surco, our guide post Lima, was exceptional in every way. He was patient, kind, knowledgeable and an absolute genius with the camera. He was filled with excellent recommendations of what to do (and what not to do). We were never rushed and yet, got to see and do everything. He is a true local and took us to places we would never have seen on our own. I can't stress how great he is.

Valentine created an awesome itinerary for us... · New Zealand - Feb 20 - Feb 27, 2020
Valentine created an awesome itinerary for us! If I were to pick out the best highlight (which is hard because everything was awesome!) I'd say it was the Waimarino glow worm evening kyak tour which was absolutely fabulous. However, everything was great from the moment we arrived in Auckland, to the whale and dolphin watching, to the wine tasting on Waiheke island, to the Hobbiton movie set, hiking around Wai O Tapu, and hanging out next to the stunning ocean in Tauranga. We had an amazing time in our 7 days in NZ!
Wonderful Christmas Vacation! · Thailand - Dec 22 - Dec 29, 2019
Ha was awesome from the start! She offered a lot of great initial options, and we worked together over a few weeks to make this vacation everything we wanted it to be. We were spoiled from the moment we met Mr. Sauce and his driver at the Bangkok airport, when we met Ms. Mew and her driver at the Chiang Mai train station, and until our last driver dropped us off at the Bangkok airport at the end of our vacation. And Ha was in constant contact with me the entire time to make sure everything was perfect. I would highly recommend Ha and her team!

Overall the trip to the Lake District was enjoyable with several hickups. We wrote to you about the discrepancy on Day 2 between what was originally quoted about lunch being included and still have not received any answer or verification of that. The original quote on which we paid stated lunch was included and then we found out it was not. The stay at Casa Karfu in Punta Arenas was not enjoyable. The hotel is very noisy, ALL the floor boards squeak, the walls are thin, and you can hear... read more
Kudos to the Lanka Kim Kim Team · Sri Lanka - Feb 9 - Feb 27, 2020
We were delighted with our Sri Lanka trip. The organization was great and when we were dissatisfied with one of our hotels, Yasantha quickly made alternate arrangements that were perfect. Our guide/driver, Kumar added to the overall enjoyment of our visit to Sri Lanka. He is an excellent reflection on the Kim Kim operation, along with Yasantha.
There are too many highlights to cover. We REALLY enjoyed the Horton Plains hike; and, of course, Sigiriya, and the cave temples of Dambulla.
Carlos was excellent! · Costa Rica - Feb 21 - Mar 1, 2020
Carlos was so great! He gave us a ton of options before we booked our trip, and then made sure everything went smoothly thereafter. He also quickly jumped in to help out with any bumps in the road while we were on our trip.
Sara is the one to use. Superb · Jordan - Feb 28 - Mar 2, 2020
I had never been to Jordan, but after some research went for Kimkim. Went with them and Sara(h) was the agent.
She is outstanding. organised an outstanding trip, form collection in Israel to dropping off back in Israel. Great suggestions too. Definitely will recommend her to anyone going to Jordan and Petra. Stayed in a Bedouin camp near Little Petra which was very good, and a lot cheaper than the overpriced hotels in Petra as well.

Macarena was professional, flexible and responsive. Quick follow up is very important to me when planning a trip.
Her suggestions made my trip special: cooking class, wine tour and Termed hot springs I would not have found.
Great Trip . . . A few constructive comments · France - Feb 15 - Feb 20, 2020
Overall this was a wonderful trip, and we were very pleased with our accommodations at Hotel a la Villa des Artistes in the Montparnasse area. That Les Jardins de Luxembourg was walking distance made it even lovelier.
All of our guides through Localers were extremely knowledgeable. We do want to offer a bit of constructive feedback regarding the Treasures of the Marais walking tour with
Patrick. I was at first reluctant to book this tour during discussions with Joel because I felt it... read more
Fantastic Patagonia Vacation for Four Friends · Patagonia - Feb 23 - Mar 4, 2020
Overall, we had a great trip and with minor exceptions all the logistics and tours went very smoothly. Some notes regarding our specific experiences in each destination:
- Gabriella, our guide for the first two days (Kawen Adventures) was exceptional. She was extremely knowledgeable and provided a wealth of information regarding the geology, flora and fauna, etc. She was very attentive and accommodating to our individual needs and interests.
- Both drivers (Tricky sp?,... read more
Fantastic Northern Norway Tour · Norway - Feb 22 - Mar 1, 2020
When my son said that he had a lifelong dream to see the northern lights, I knew that I'd need the help of a travel agent familiar with northern Scandinavia. A quick internet search led me to Kimkim, which had already done the work of planning the outline for a perfect trip. I had never used an internet based travel agent before, but the idea of using agents based where we would be traveling was quite appealing so I gave them a chance. I was very glad I did.
From the very beginning it was... read more
Two weeks in Colombia · Colombia - Nov 7 - Nov 21, 2019
This is a long overdue review of our fabulous November 2019 trip to Colombia.
Despite a prolonged wait to clear customs, we were greeted by Lina who graciously made sure we were safely transported to our destination. For the next two days she provided an energetic and welcoming introduction to Bogota. In Villa de Leyva Mauricio was a delightful guide, providing a personal and entertaining opportunity to explore area. We really enjoyed his musical background and knowledge.

Morocco you have my ❤️! · Morocco - Feb 15 - Feb 23, 2020
Hassan was fantastic booking this trip. I decided to go two weeks before I left. He was able to make all the my requests happen and more! The day before I left I slipped on the sidewalk and fractured my knee. I thought for sure I wasn’t going to be able to go but the doctor cleared me for the trip and I was so excited. He helped me get a better seat on the plane and wheelchair assistance at the airport which was much appreciated. He made sure I was well taken care of throughout my trip.

What an unbelievable trip! Absolutely amazing! · Costa Rica - Feb 21 - Mar 1, 2020
What an unbelievable trip! I’m not sure what was better; Costa Rica or Carlos! This was my first time using KimKim and it won’t be my last. Carlos planned the perfect trip. From starting out in the rustic Corcovado national park to the cloud forests and then ending at one of the nicest/relaxing hot spring resorts in Arenal. The trip had everything; rainforests, jungles, wildlife, zip lines, bungee jumping, volcanos, delicious food, amazing resorts, beaches, 6 seater airplanes, snakes, night... read more
Enjoyable Trip · Argentina - Feb 23 - Feb 29, 2020
We had an enjoyable time in Buenos Aires and the Iquazu Falls. Emilce had done a wonderful job for all the transfers between places and the pick ups were on time. Also thank Federico who was so wonderful in guiding us thru the city of Buenos Aires. We learnt a lot about the political background, history and cultures of Argentina. We really appreciate his service. The hotel which Emilce arranged in BA was really good. However we were not very happy about EcoIguazu's tour on the Argintina side.... read more
Fantastic Trip Through Morocco! · Morocco - Feb 21 - Mar 1, 2020
My husband and I did a 10 day Highlights of Morocco tour and it was one of the best trips we’ve ever taken! The booking experience with Megan was quick and easy and she was able to customize the tour to suit our interests and budget. Our driver, Brahim, was absolutely superb! He was a fantastic guide and took care of us from the moment we were picked up at the airport. He was always courteous, timely, and very helpful. During our time in Merzouga, his family had a lovely surprise for us and... read more
Amazing 13-day Trip to Morocco! · Morocco - Feb 16 - Feb 28, 2020
My wife and I booked a private 13-day Chefchaouen to Sahara and Beyond trip with Wanderlust. We had the excellent fortune of being assigned Said Attioui as our driver. Said went up and beyond to make our trip an incredible experience. He was knowledgable about every location we visited and made our two weeks in Morocco seamlessly comfortable. Even though it wasn't on the itinerary, Said made time to help us find and visit the grave of my great grandmother in Casablanca.

Vietnam and Cambodian Adventures with Kimkim · Vietnam - Feb 13 - Mar 1, 2020
We couldn't have had a better experience than we did in Vietnam and Cambodia thanks to Kimkim. All of our travels went smoothly with people meeting us at the airports and transferring us to our hotels. The local guides were all fantastic with good English skills and great knowledge to share. We especially loved Hui in Hoi An and Se Vannesak in Siem Reap. The accomodations were wonderful and very well located so we could walk to city centers for dinners. We had a great five weeks on the road thanks to Kimkim. Much thanks and appreciation to Will for setting it all up.
The Best Way to Plan and Book a Trip · Vietnam - Feb 13 - Mar 1, 2020
This is a great way to plan and book a vacation. Will worked us to put together a wonderful 4 week trip to Vietnam and Cambodia. Our accommodations were perfect- beautiful hotels every one with great staff and morning buffets. Our guides and drivers were always punctual, knowledgeable, and fun to be with. The activities were interesting and fun as well. Everything went as planned and we could just relax and enjoy the trip knowing every detail was well taken care of. We will likely never plan our own international trips again.

Truly the best trip ever!! From planning to execution everything was flawless. 10 days 2 teens and a single Mom not a single argument, PRICELESS!!. Every excursion was amazing. Waterfall rappelling was our adventure highlight. Relaxing in Manuel Antonio was the cherry on top. Between the high end accommodation, fabulous food, wildlife and beaches couldn’t have asked for anything better. Can’t wait to book our next trip.
Great Trip Ecuador · Ecuador - Feb 6 - Feb 27, 2020
Isabel Fernandez worked so hard to make our trip to Ecuador so memorable. Every part of the trip was smooth. No hassles in terms of pick ups and transportation. Our guide, Christian was fantastic. We told Isabel what we loved to do as travellers (hiking, nature, etc.) and she worked with us to plan a perfect vacation. She made great suggestions and we worked together to make our Ecuadorian experience so memorable. Rich and Melissa
Trip of a Lifetime to Egypt and Jordan and # 1 Bucket Item Destination, Petra · Egypt - Feb 2 - Feb 11, 2020
I had pretty much planned out my trip to Egypt and Jordan on my own, when I decided to contact kimkim to see what assistance might be available. I had used kimkim to help plan a trip to Myanmar which was incredible -far beyond my expectations - and so I decided to use kimkim again for on the ground support in Egypt and Jordan.
I am so glad I did - everything went like clockwork. From the moment we were picked up at the airport in Luxor until we were deposited at the airport in Amman at... read more

Pissa was the best guide and the insight and cultural history I learned from the inside was invaluable. High highly recommend KimKim and, if possible, a solo tour with one of their guides.

Every aspect of the trip that Patricia planned for us was flawless. The guides and drivers, particularly Miguel, Daniel, and Inma were so knowledgeable and concerned with our experience and comfort. I have travelled extensively in Europe, individually, as the leader of student groups, and as part of a travel group, and I can say unequivocally that this was the best trip I have taken. I loved meeting Patricia and I especially thank her for her terrific work.
8 nights in Jordan and Israel · Israel - Feb 14 - Feb 21, 2020
First of all, I want to say thank you to Lena for sticking with us! We took months to plan and finalize our trip, and she was with us through it all, changing our itinerary multiple times and answering our seemingly endless questions promptly!
Jordan was full of natural beauty and we LOVED our hike in Dana and our guide Mohammed. Will never forget having Bedouin tea and freshly warmed pitas with him over lunch. Equally lovely was Wadi Rum. Aicha Camp was gorgeous (and they upgraded us to... read more

Overall we had a really positive experience using KimKim. As two people who don't speak much Spanish, we found their services to arrange tours and transportation to be a huge benefit in making our travel throughout Argentina easier. We were thankful for Virginia's responsiveness and recommendations.
We especially loved El Chalten and Los Glaciares National Park. We only had one small tour/transportation hiccup but Virginia responded right away and came up with a solution quickly.

Overall the trekking was very well organised with excellent commumication leading up to the trek itself. The rice terraces of Ifugao were truly amazing and better that I expected. Loved the villages and the warm welcome we received throughout our journey. Our guide Marvin was very friendly and led us through well, and has a superb knowledge of the local area, the environment, its people and its customs.

This is my first time using the services. I had Virginia as my agent and I was very happy with her. Things were planned last minute and somehow everything worked out. My highlight was the stay at the Mercure Hotel in Iguazu. I did not do any research at all and I was blown away. Thanks Virginia and KimKim for making dreams come true!!!
Argentina Trip · Argentina - Feb 6 - Feb 20, 2020
Emilce was very responsive and gave us great service. The trip itself was very enjoyable. the only wrinkle was that we had expressed an interest in hiking anddespite the fact the south of Argentina has lots of great hiking, the "hiking experiences" were mostly bus rides to scenic places.
Memorable Colombia Trip! · Colombia - Feb 15 - Feb 22, 2020
First - we will definitely use Kimkim again for future travels! Thank you for a well-planned vacation.
Secondly - Chio was responsive and helpful - nice work! Our only complaint is that everyone knew that Tayrona National Park was closed in February - apparently it's an annual thing. If we had known this from the beginning, we might have altered our itinerary. We did not get informed until January. We really loved the place we stayed outside of Tayrona Park, but the River Don Diego... read more
An remarkable experience of Adventure and Hospitality · Iceland - Feb 4 - Feb 12, 2020
It is one thing to book and adventure into the unknown to try to figure it out for yourself. It was my intention to do so, but the reality is that it helps to have somebody at least give a map or a general guide of what to look out for.
It is another thing when you can have a specialist help carefully curate an experience. First, I'd like to mention that the magical experience of my trip was only emphasized by the incredible knowledge and hospitality of the agent who helped me - Emanuela... read more
Amazing trip to Morocco! · Morocco - Feb 15 - Feb 22, 2020
We had a fantastic trip to Morocco thanks to Kimkim! They provided us with luxury accommodations and a wonderful driver, Faissal, who was with us for the entire trip! Faissal was extremely friendly, spoke English well, and helped us quite a bit with our interactions with locals. The tour provided an excellent taste of Morocco and I feel that we really did get to experience everything we wanted in just 8 days. We enjoyed our time in the Sahara the most as it was such a unique experience, but... read more

Go to Italy! · Italy - Feb 12 - Feb 21, 2020
Just back from an amazing family vacation! Emi’s recommendations and planning allowed us to see and experience parts of Rome, Milan, Turin and Florence - both through relaxed self exploration within the cities and small group tours for daylong excursions in smaller towns nearby. The hotels, and train travel she organized made it easy to relax and enjoy the trip. Questions arose while we were traveling, and she was quick to reply - so nice to have a friendly local resource! Would definitely recommend and use this service again for future trips. Thank you Emi!

He made our long trips enjoyable. Also, he is a very good driver and has a lot of patience. Thank you for making this an unforgettable trip.

In Seville and Granada, very close to the cathedrals and historic areas. Every driver was on time, and all the guides were exceptional:... read more
