One of the best trips yet! Thanks to KimKim!

Loved the trip overall. Excellent job by Valentine and her team. They were extremely flexible with all the changes we wanted to make. Even during our trip they assisted with all sorts of questions and even some changes. Overall the guides were good. The best guide was Jim in Fussen who showed us the castles, with a wealth of historical and current day knowledge. Overall we felt the trip was quite expensive, but most of it was the cost of hotels/restaurants in Switzerland and some of it was to do with our choices of guides, excursions and specific activities like driving around Nurburgring. Our family had an awesome time and we could not have done it without KimKim!
This hotel was beautiful, but it didn't have air conditioning which was quite a problem during the summer heat. I was not aware of this when I booked it. Nonetheless, I managed by opening the window to cool down. I'd say it was an okay experience but they should definitely let customers know about the lack of AC beforehand.
This hotel was also good but like the previous one, it lacked air conditioning. However, the cooler temperatures in Grindelwald during the night made the stay bearable. The hotel was fine overall, but again, knowing about the lack of air conditioning in advance would've been helpful
The guide, Barbara, was knowledgeable but very opinionated, which made the tour a little less enjoyable.
This was my favorite activity. The tour guide, Jim, was absolutely fantastic - interactive, engaging, and down-to-earth. He was very knowledgeable, but never condescending, which made the tour very enjoyable. I'd highly recommend Jim and this tour.
This was a nice tour, but I feel that renting a car and driving down ourselves would have been a better and more cost-effective option.
I enjoyed the kayaking activity, but I probably would have just rented the kayaks ourselves instead of hiring a guide.
