I initially thought I could plan our trip to Greece on my own. However upon delving into the planning phase, I immediately felt overwhelmed. I did not feel confident in booking the various ferries from island to island , and choosing a hotel was totally overwhelming, because of all the options.

I initially thought I could plan our trip to Greece on my own. However upon delving into the planning phase, I immediately felt overwhelmed. I did not feel confident in booking the various ferries from island to island , and choosing a hotel was totally overwhelming, because of all the options.

I found Kim Kim travel service randomly on the Internet. I had never heard of them before. I decided to take the survey asking me questions about our travel preferences, priorities and some general personal information thinking “what could it hurt?” In a very short time I received a reply from Amalia. After a few conversations via Text, she put together an impressive preliminary itinerary.
Amalia was always very quick to answer my many questions.
We recently returned from our 10 day trip and everything Amalia planned for us was perfect!! The hotels, the activities, the transportation… we have zero complaints! I liked that everything was already paid for so we didn’t have to worry about that. She knew the best ferries to book, with the best seats ! Having drivers lined up was so helpful, especially on the picking up from the Athens airport upon our arrival, when we were so tired. The activities she arranged (after our chats via text) were perfect for us ( based on our age / abilities). We also had just the right of unscheduled time to do what we wished.
I can’t speak for any Kim Kim travel agents other than Amalia,. But we are so grateful to her. The amount of time and stress she saved me from trying to do it on my own is immeasurable!

Hotel Reviews
NLH Monastiraki
Athens

Great location, clean and comfortable rooms, love the rooftop bar. Very kind staff. My one and only complaint/ comment is at night, there is a lot of noise from the music located in the charming night scene behind the hotel, so I had a hard time sleeping.

Cycling experience in Mykonos
Mykonos

This was one of our favorite activities of our 10 day trip! We elected to use E-bikes, as I had always wanted to try one. Now I want to purchase one! Our guide, co- owner Demetria was so kind and patient, and her talk about the culture was so interesting. She took lots of photos of us , which she emailed to us a few days later. The ride to the nearby beach was lovely. I recommend arriving early and have a bite to eat/ wine at the organic winery on the same premises. The one thing to be aware of , it’s location is quite remote, out in the country. It’s a bit difficult to find .It is an expensive cab ride… but worth it!!
