My family just returned from a trip to France. The team at Kimkim, Sebastian helped plan our trip. He was great to work with right from the start. This was our first trip to France so we didn’t know what to expect going in. Sebastian and the team at Kimkim made it effortless to travel through France.
We were picked up by a driver upon arrival to Paris, and transported to our hotel.
Most of our activities were booked, including a bike tour of Paris, and a guided tour of Versailles palace.
The team had purchased our train tickets to Aix en Provence and arranged a guided tour of surrounding villages.
We had a fantastic tour of Marseille’s national park on a speed boat. This was quite a treat!
We went to Nice and had a fantastic experience. A private tour of Monaco, arranged by the Kimkim team was one of the high points of our visit to France.
We look forward to working with Kimkim in the future for other visits to Europe.
All accommodations we stayed at were very clean and comfortable.
Their pricing was fair compared to some other companies we tried to work with.
I highly recommend this company for anyone traveling to Europe.

Hotel Reviews
Aparthotel Adagio Nice Promenade des Anglais
Nice

The staff were helpful. The apartment was very clean. And the location was excellent. It overlooks the ocean. It was nice to relax at the balcony, and gaze at the ocean. Also, was nice to walk across the steeet and be at the beach. We ate at Cocoon restaurant right along the beach and the food was delicious! Note:They charge 25 euros to get your room cleaned if staying less than 8 days. 5 euros per towel is charged if you want towels replaced.

Francesc was my favorite front desk person by far. She was very helpful from the day we checked in. I left my purse at the front desk when we checked out and she helped us arrange for an ups pick up. My purse was delivered to me when we arrived in Nice, with everything intact. Thank you so much!!

This was a great adventure tour of Paris. It rained most of the day but that did not dampen our spirits. It was a little scary at times navigating the streets of Paris on bikes, on streets with cars. Our tour guide was excellent and told the best stories about the history of the city and France in general.

Our tour guide made the tour really a fun one. His stories aboutThe paintings, and the gladiator arena were very interesting.

What can I say this was my family’s all time favorite activity for our entire trip. Our Chef was truly talented and had many helpful tips. We made multiple different pastries. My whole family took this class and it was fun to learn to make croissants from scratch with my husband, my 16 year old son and my 13 year old daughter. We plan to make more pastries at home from the recipes we received from the class. Highly recommend this class.

Transport
We traveled with metro to the location. It always felt like an adventure to travel and navigate the metro system since we don’t have any subway transport in our city of residence.
