Italy in September - Sep 13 - Sep 22, 2018

Traveler: Lynn Z. - Local specialist: Marianne Lopez

This was the first time we have ever planned,booked and paid for a trip totally on the internet. We are older travellers and were a bit hesitant about "faceless" booking, but we are happy to say everything worked out wonderfully. We started planning our trip to Italy with local specialist ,Georgia who put together a fantastic package and was completed by Marianne, with a few changes that we decided to make. All in all, every detail worked out great with no problems with any of the arrangements. What we really liked was being able to plan exactly what we wanted to see and to have the ability to have days to ourselves such as we did in Amalfi for 3days.

HOTELS...... We asked for 3star hotels and were very pleased with all of them. They all were in prime locations for walking to all the sights. Particularly lovely was the Hotel Culture in Napoli, Il Piccolino Giardino in Taormina and the Via Della Giudecca in Syracuse, Sicily.
DRIVERS......Every driver was waiting for us at each airport to take us to our hotel.also punctual were the drivers between cities. Every car was a Mercedes!
TOURS......we had 2 tour guides, both very knowledgeable and approachable. Ludevicia for Napoli and Pompei was exceptional and Eva in Syracuse was very personable. The boat trip around Ortega Island was really fun. The cooking class at Porto Messina restaurant was a great day too.

We would not hesitate to use KimKim again for future travels. The cost was very fair for the quality of trip we experienced. Such a good idea to be able to plan with an agent who actually lives in the area you want to visit and also have the backing of the KimKim company throughout the process.
