The two weeks that he had organized through kimkim was a terrific travel experience! We will first start of by saying that they do a wonderful job on working with a set budget. Ina was our travel agent for our excursion in Italy and the Mediterranean and was able to provide a very detailed itinerary, then amend it based on our thoughts, prioritization and budget. Each of our destination locations were roughly 2 days, which gave us time to experience pre-set tours, walking around the locations, eat out and allow us to have a "free day" to explore.

It was incredibly convenient to have Ina email us the itinerary prior, with all the tickets, tour info, must see hot spots, and have ALL the intricate travel taken care of. We appreciated the recommended sights to see as well as cafes/restaurants/bars to visit. We had never seen such a detailed itinerary and were very appreciative of all the insights. Car services and water taxis were very punctual (sometimes early) when picking us from the hotels and taking us to the next destination on the itinerary. How to get from point A to B to C was something we were initially stressed about. Kimkim does an excellent job at taking care of all the travel plans while you are in a foreign country. We had minimal issues with moving to and from locations due to the detailed itinerary and punctual aspect of the car services.

Restaurant reservations were even made by her after our input on food preferences.
Every now and then, we would need to reach out to kimkim on Whatapp via mobile if we were in a bind for some details, but kimkim was prompt and handled the situation without any major issues.

The only recommendation we have is to provide different options for the local tours. We overall were happy with the tours Ina set up! For example, we are very interested in Greek mythology and there was an option to do a Greek mythology based tour of the Acropolis. We did the architectural based tour which was good but would have liked to have the mythology incorporated into the tour.

Overall, this trip was incredible, and it went by so fast for how busy we kept. We took this opportunity to do as much as possible in the 2 weeks we had. Ina made sure to be very detailed in the planning.

Kimkim wiped away so much stress, made travel easier and provided an insight into the Italian and Greek culture that we would not have gathered with self-planned travel.

We can't speak highly enough of kimkim and look forward to our next adventure with these folks the next time we choose to travel internationally!

Hotel Review
Abelonas Retreat
Santorini

The Abelonas Retreat is exactly that, a sweet retreat in Santorini located just outside of Fira. The staff is very accommodating. Breakfast was included in our stay in which you could choose what you wanted the night before and pick a time for it to be delivered; between 8-10ish am. Furthermore, they set the breakfast up on your private balcony for a great start to your morning! The rooms were spacious, clean, and thankfully had AC!
