Trip was great, especially during a global pandemic - Dec 18 - Dec 24, 2020

Traveler: Cristina M. - Local specialist: Daniel Larrea

This was the second trip I took using KimKim and both times it's been great. Daniel planned everything I ask for and he did a great job given pandemic limitations. He added in nothing extra I didn't request and was able to make everything else work for us. Daniel was able to keep the trip in our budget, was extremely communicative the whole time during our trip, and continued to give us tips and advice throughout our time.

The only negative part of the trip was a transportation mishap getting from one place to another. We ended up in a small car having to drive overnight hours in the opposite direction only to return the same way we came and go hours more. Even though this was frustrating for us, Daniel tried everything he could to find a different form of transportation but the pandemic restrictions and lack of tourism at the time were really to blame. Daniel went above and beyond to help during that time.

Our guides were all great. My sister and I basically had a private trip from place to place and had a local guide who knew the area in each national park we went to. This was a trip packed with outdoor adventure just like we requested. Thank you very much!
