Wow! My husband and I are seasoned travelers, and this was one of our best vacations ever! Robi was so knowledgable, responsive and SO generous in helping us plan the perfect trip. Though we moved around a lot (We wanted to see everything!) the pacing was perfect, and we had something cool to explore each day. We covered Istria, 2 national parks, and the Dalmatian coast in 14 days!
There were so many highlights, but the most unexpected was our 4 day bike excursion from Kocula to Dubrovnik with our incredible guide, Borna. He led us on the most beautiful roads with stunning views and delightful stops along the way (vineyards for wine tasting, beautiful bays for swims, old monasteries, local meals . . ) He and Robi found roads that were not only gorgeous, but relatively traffic free, which was important given that the narrow winding Croatian roads have little to no shoulder. Borna was a delight, following us in the van, making sure we never made a wrong turn, and that we were always well equipped with water, snacks, and everything else we could possibly need! (Frankly, I expected someone to show up with e-bikes and GPS routes. I did not realize that we would have the same kind of personalized service as the more expensive group bike tours!)
Another highlight was the spectacular Oyster experience where we got to eat fresh oysters straight from the sea and drink homemade wine with one of Ston's premiere Oyster farmers -- while learning about oyster farming onboard his little boat.
So many great experiences (Shout out to Ovi, our awesome tour guide in Split!) I could go on and on, but suffice to say that Robi was SO accommodating and attentive to every last detail. His inside knowledge and suggestions were spot on. (e.g., Ston, the town I was on the fence about, ended up being one of our favorites!)
This was our first time booking with KimKim and we are hooked! Hvala to Robi and Borna!!!
What a find! This brand new, charming, spotless 2 bedroom-2 bathroom home in Mali Ston was an unexpected gift! Surrounded by fig, lemon, lime, pomegranate trees + rosemary and lavender with tons of room to spread out and chill! Nice break from hotels in this charming little town!
Beautiful upscale hotel right on the water. Excellent service!
Dubrovnik is a beautiful historic city that must be visited, however, it can ge very crowded!
Lovely driver picked us up at the city walls and even suggested a stop to take a final photo over Dubrovnik!
