Truly enjoyed our experience with Kim Kim. I was delighted to experience the different locales and different types of hotels/inns/cabins. The various guides and transfer drivers were, as a whole, delightful and informative.
The only drawback was our guide on the Isle of Skye. He didn't seem to know that we would rely on him to recommend places to see. He expected us to outline specifically what we wished to see. When we informed him that we would like to visit the Fairy Pools, he was adamant that we wouldn't be able to do it in the allotted time frame. Overall, our experience of the Isle of Skye was tainted by his lack of knowledge and enthusiasm.
Loved the historical nature of this inn. While it had been renovated to allow for modern conveniences, the historical nature of the building and the coziness of the pub were delightful. Alex, who welcomed us to the inn, was extremely helpful and charming.
The cabins were adorable and the kitchen was well equipped. Both of our cabins were clean and comfortable and the staff were most helpful.
The staff was fabulous and extremely helpful. Our bed was a king-sized bed. I am a 5 foot 10 inch tall woman and my feet hung off the bottom of the bed unless my head was touching the headboard. It was an uncomfortable bed, but the front desk had housekeeping provide us with a bed topper to alleviate the lumpiness of the bed. Other than the bed issue, everything was clean and comfortable.
Our driver was extremely helpful and informative. He stopped occasionally to allow us time to experience some of the sites en route to our hotel.
Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and fun. She dressed in Regency attire and paced the tour in a manner that allowed for all members of our foursome to keep up.
I loved Stonehenge and the exhibition hall and buildings were truly helpful in imagining what it was like for the people from back in time to live and celebrate around Stonehenge.
