With a deep interest in medieval French art and architecture, I've been carrying a list of sites that I meant to visit "someday" around in my head for more than 40 years. The problem has always been that many of these sites — like St-Martin-du-Canigou, St-Guilhem-le-Désert and Conques — are fairly remote and pretty far off the usual tourist track for Americans. I had no idea how to visit them until I contacted Joël Massé of Trip My France through kimkim. Unlike some other travel agents I spoke to, Joël understood my goals immediately and was fully committed to helping me achieve them. He created a customized itinerary that added many highlights I hadn't been aware of. He selected memorable hotels in each location, all perfectly suited to my tastes, and hired outstanding tour guides to make each site come alive. Best of all, he made everything easy. The entire trip came off flawlessly — and on the few occasions when minor problems did arise, Joël and his colleagues were immediately available to help resolve them. Joël exceeded my expectations in every way, and I couldn't recommend him more highly. For me, he turned "someday" into today.

Hello Frank,
I can't thank you enough for the 5* review you've left on Kim Kim. Your trip being much more original than the majority of trips we are dealing with, it was definitely an exciting challenge to work on such an off-the-beaten paths itinerary. Being myself native from the Pyrénées Orientales of course helped me, and I'm truly happy that you've enjoyed your adventure overall.
