Jon & Jane love Iceland & Emanuela - Sep 3 - Sep 8, 2021

Traveler: Jonathan B. - Local specialist: Emanuela Grieco

Hi, I’m Jon. I live in Chicago and recently traveled to Iceland with my partner Jane. It’s hard for me to express the grandeur you’ll see in the Icelandic landscape, but I can tell you that Emanuela and kimkim helped us make some incredible memories without having to negotiate many of the details that pull me out of the magical moments that make traveling memorable and fulfilling. I had previously used kimkim for adventure travel in the Altai Mountain Region of Western Mongolia, so I knew their value and attention to tailoring each trip for my personal taste. Emanuela didn’t disappoint. From our first emails about our Icelandic road trip to the last minute changes and concierge style help in-country, I wholeheartedly recommend her service if you’re planning a trip to Iceland. She picked hotels and guest house stays that offered us value and style, and she worked in every stop we had on our must see list (black sand beaches, hiking, waterfalls, glaciers, great restaurants, and hot springs, lots and lots of hot springs), and gave us marvelous suggestions that really made for remarkable memories. She helped us, but it still felt like our trip rather than a package deal, this did not feel generic at all. Regarding cost, her fee is a drop in the bucket compared to the amount of time it would have taken us to research and book all the details she put together for us, then there was the advice on traveling in this unique country and time in all our lives. I give Emanuela 10 out of 10.
