Hooked on Safaris & South Africa · South Africa - May 21 - May 31, 2021
Our honeymoon to South Africa was truly unforgettable, and we are already dreaming of our next safari trip. We wouldn’t change anything about the itinerary Petru helped us put together, other than adding more time! We can’t wait to be back and would use Petru again, especially with how communicative she is and how easily she helped us navigate having to delay our trip by 8 months due to Covid. Thanks for helping us create the best memories!
Perfection! · Costa Rica - May 15 - May 23, 2021
The trip was incredible and Randall was incredible as well. There were lots of complicated logistics involved in this trip and everything (seriously, EVERYTHING) went off without a hitch. Transportation was perfectly planned and executed, and everyone he worked with for tours and transport was extremely friendly. The trip itself was SO fun. We couldn't have asked for a better week.
Amazing travels in Costa Rica! · Costa Rica - May 29 - Jun 5, 2021
Absolutely wonderful trip! At the end of May 2021, we traveled to Costa Rica to celebrate our son's graduation from high school. From beginning to end, Olman ensured that our travel plans were both clear and streamlined. We started our adventure in San Jose, where we were picked up by the amazing and knowledgeable Fisroy who drove us to La Fortuna and Arenal. On the way, we stopped at the Doka coffee farm and a beautiful waterfall for local fruit. Once in Arenal, we spent a couple of... read more

We felt well cared for and had the time to get to enjoy the best of Greece, In Athens our driver Lambros brought us to great sightseeing locations around Athens and was so welcoming.

Turkey Road Trip · Turkey - Apr 20 - May 3, 2021
Considering traveling during a pandemic, my trip organizer, Murat Ornek and guides Rdivan Uyanik and Alp Sancar were amazing. They knew how to deal with new covid restrictions while I was there to make the trip as seamless as possible. I highly recommend working with Murat in organizing your Turkish experience. Very accommodating person and I had the privilege in meeting his lovely, warm family. I have to as much as I loved Istanbul with its astounding mosques, beautiful landscape, and... read more
Gorillas, safari and new Ugandan familia :) · Uganda - May 12 - May 18, 2021
Long story short, I have planned this trip since last year but as we all know covid; came along and things got cancelled. My initial contact was Anne; which now I consider her as part of my family. She always responded to my questions and she took time from her busy schedule to meet me at the airport. My journey started with Bob; which he was a great guide. I am a solo female traveler and I never felt unsafe. I had a wonderful experience trekking for the silver back gorillas; it’s a feeling... read more

Olman was extremely helpful with planning. Both accommodations were just as described with friendly staff and nice rooms. The travel accommodations were also always on time and the drivers from each company were knowledgeable about the country and extremely friendly. The only discrepancy came to the nature hike in Manuel Antonio with Tucson Tours. Our itinerary said pickup time was 7:25; however the actual pickup time was 7:15 and the shuttle almost left without us. All in all it was a great experience. Thank you!
Maricruz planned a great trip for our family of 5 · Costa Rica - May 15 - May 22, 2021
Maricruz was a great resource and help for us when booking our family trip to Costa Rica. She was conscious of our budget and our interest. The best part of our trip was definitely our guide, Jose. He was very knowledgeable, patient, flexible, and a great companion throughout the trip. He recommended a lot of great places to eat at and also additional activities when we felt up to it. We enjoyed the different cities of Costa Rica that we were able to see, the hotels were nice to stay at, and... read more
We enjoyed using this company! · Costa Rica - May 24 - May 29, 2021
Olman was very helpful in helping me set up an itinerary that best fit my family and I’s wants. I had never used a specialist to help plan my vacation but this time I wanted someone to set it for me since I was going to a new country and was not too familiar with the surroundings. It can be stressful planning activities and hotels on my own but this was such a breeze having someone do it for me! Our transportation to and from the airport/hotel/activities was on time every time. The activitie... read more
Best last minute trip + Covid issues · Tanzania - May 19 - May 27, 2021
I had Joseph as my contact for this amazing trip to Pemba & Zanzibar. I couldn't be any happier with his great customer service. Due to my busy work schedule, I was unable to book in advance and it was last minute. Finally, when I booked the trip I had a nightmare with CoVid19 as I was coming from Uganda. Joseph was very, very helpful and made sure that I initially received helped with the cancelations, but eventually I was still able to make it to my destinations and he helped me again and... read more
EXCELLENT service · Morocco - May 21 - Jun 1, 2021
I have to say this was one of the best trips. The itinerary completely curated by Abdellah was fabulous and our driver Faysal was the definition of professional with a side of humor! Morocco was made even more beautiful through the kindness of the tour guides and people Abdellah organized for us to meet. I also would like to add that I felt quite safe COVID wise as all the hotels that were picked were very clean (and beautiful). Don’t hesitate and book with this wonderful team!
A Phenomenal tour of a Phenomenal country! · Iceland - May 22 - May 30, 2021
My husband and I had a wonderful 8 day tour of Iceland's Snaefellsnes peninsula and the Golden circle. We had high expectations for the trip, but the actual sights exceeded them!

Mom's Costa Rican Bday Celebration · Costa Rica - May 11 - May 16, 2021
Our local specialist, Randall, helped customize my mom's birthday celebration in Costa Rica. The only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer from our drivers picking us up from the airport to taking us on our adventures and other cities. We enjoyed our trip and will definitely be using KimKim again!

Returned home from an EPIC journey to Egypt. Amr & Ibrahim helped plan an amazing trip for me and my wife for our 11th anniversary and it was one of the best trips we have every taken. I rarely use trip planning services as I like to do most of the work myself but with this trip, everything was executed perfectly. No wasted time. Perfect mix of sightseeing and relaxation. Would HIGHLY recommend this service to anybody wanted to visit Egypt and maximize their time in country.

Trip to Zagreb and Split · Croatia - May 14 - May 19, 2021
Robi was incredible from start to finish. I decided to go by myself to Croatia last second and on a budget. I normally do not do guides or tours but since I was trying to have an "aggressive" schedule, I decided to reach out. Robi was very responsive and presented different options to try to fit all of my crazy requests to see everything in such a short amount of time. I was extremely happy to have him as a guide as it made it seem like I was traveling with an old friend and he was flexible... read more

Thank you Zulmy, the guides at Tucaya, and Nadia for planning and executing my vacation in Panama. They all did a wonderful job putting together an itinerary. They were all available for me if I had any questions or needed assistance. I was a little hesitant traveling internationally due to COVID but they helped me navigate any obstacles. Also arranged for me to get a PCR COVID test prior to returning to the US. The process was very efficient. I had a wonder time exploring Panama in the... read more
Wonderful Costa Rica experience !! · Costa Rica - May 1 - May 9, 2021
The planning was excellent! Olman was very helpful, and knowledgeable, with great suggestions, patience with adjusting itinerary, and attentive to our needs. He did an amazing job of arranging things, and dealing with the changes and requirements caused by COVID, including the testing issues. I have already recommended him to several people!
The places where we stayed, and the activities planned, were all good. We were pleased with Tirimbina, as we anticipated, with delicious food ad... read more
We had a fantastic trip to Marrakech thanks to Abdel · Morocco - May 10 - May 15, 2021
We had a fantastic trip to Marrakech, very much thanks to our guide Abdel. He planned a great itinerary for us and had really listened to what we were looking for. The recommendation of everything from the Riad (Palais Sebban!) to restaurants and our local guide Hassan were such a good match for what we wanted. The best part of the trip was going with Abdel to the Atlas Mountains for hiking and meeting people in the villages around Imlil.
Thank you Abdel and Original Travels for an amazing trip!! We will be back!

We had such a great trip. Everything was planned out for us and our local specialist Yenyi helped us with everything we needed including rescheduling multiple times due to the pandemic, arranging our covid testing and providing us with great recommendations while in Costa Rica. Would use kimkim again and recommend to others.
The Perfect Mix of Adventure and Comfort · Namibia - Apr 30 - May 10, 2021
As someone who usually prefers to make all of my own travel arrangements, I was hesitant to use Kimkim for my recent trip to Namibia. The Kimkim team and Petru in particular quickly proved that all of my biases against travel agencies were wrong. Petru was extremely knowledgeable about the lodges, parks and related travel information in Namibia, and was able to help me successfully navigate the difficulties of COVID-era travel. The lodgings and travel arrangements Petru selected were exactly... read more
A 2.5 week trip to Morocco · Morocco - Mar 25 - Apr 10, 2021
Our trip to Morocco was a once in a lifetime experience thanks to Wanderlust Voyages. We spent 2.5 weeks travelling throughout the country, and our driver/guide Ibrahim, as well as Megan and the Wanderlust crew, made sure everything was just how we could have wanted it to be. Ibrahim took care of us as if we were a member of his own family, especially our two year old son - who to this day is talking about getting back "in the bus and going to Morocco".
Even with COVID restrictions,... read more
A triumphant return to travel · Morocco - May 10 - May 15, 2021
Our trip to Marrakech and Imlil in the Atlas Mountains, planned and guided by Abdel from Original Travels, was a spectacular (!!) return to travel for a group of vaccinated expats coming from Abu Dhabi.
We started out with a very smooth transfer from Casablanca to Marrakech with our wonderful (and safe!) driver, Samir, then had dinner at our gorgeous riad, Palais Sebban, a solid recommendation from Abdel. Our first morning, we took a super fun and informative cooking class at Maison Al Arabe... read more
Abdellah and he´s team did a great job showing us around Morocco · Morocco - May 10 - May 15, 2021
Amazing and well planed trip. Abdellah did a great job showing us Marrakech and the Atlas Mountains. Abdellah and he´s colleagues made everything to make our trip perfect!
Fantastic week in Marrakech! · Morocco - May 10 - May 15, 2021
Fantastic week in Marrakech!
Abdellah was incredibly responsive, organized, flexible and fun. Considering the limitations imposed by Covid, we had to make multiple changes to our itinerary. Abdellah was quick to adjust and constructive in helping us pivot our plans. Each day he planned was fun without being too overwhelming. It was a smooth week all-around, and his help in planning our agenda was the difference maker! Anyone looking to enjoy Marrakech and the Atlas Mountains should not hesitate to use his team!
Our new extended Amazigh family! · Morocco - May 7 - May 14, 2021
"One of our first trips since the pandemic and Abdel made great arrangements for us. Karim was our driver and friend throughout the tour. Mohanned was a wiz at weaving us through the medina in Fes and Hamdan had great insights in Marrakech. We had the entire place to ourselves in Skoura and a wonderful view from our terrace in Chefchouen. We'll definitely go back again since we were limited due to Eid Al Fitr. Glad to have had this experience and wish I had more time...."

I went to Chapada Diamantina to only find out that the real diamond is Nattrip ;) · Brazil - Apr 25 - Apr 29, 2021
To say that I am a hard person to organise something for would be an understatement :D
This wonderful team at Nattrip however managed to go with all my obligatory requests and last minute changes and created the best trip I could have wanted!
At one point I thought they will just leave me or start caring less about me and my trip due to the many demands, but no! They were on point till the last day!

I was fortunate to be paired with Daniel at Responsible Travel Ecuador through KimKim. This was my third time booking a trip on KimKim and once again it does not disappoint! The 15 day tour I did started out in Galapagos Island which was efficient since you need PCR Test to go to the Island and I did everything from boat tours, snorkeling, walking tour, lava tunnel and a day of relaxation! The tour continued to Quito where I was given two insightful tours from Andrea who also is from... read more

My trip to a new foreign land was an amazing experience. The food, the culture, the architecture, the people and the weather were something I will always cherish and remember. Our trip was not conventional by any means. It had many changes to travelers and destinations. But through all of these, I was able to coordinate everything through Andrea and our local guides. We were here for my friend's birthday and she told me it was the birthday of a lifetime. We experienced so many beautiful... read more
Five Stars in Jordan - Dunes and Beyond / Sherif · Jordan - Apr 1 - Apr 9, 2021
I visited the beautiful Jordan at the end of March and early April 2021. I went through the Lonely Planet guide to get a sense of what I wanted to see. (Jordan is way much more than Petra). Through Kimkim, I was put in touch with Sherif. Sherif suggested a proposed itinerary, along with additional things I said I wanted to do/see. And the outcome was fantastic.
From the moment I landed, someone was there for me at the airport to walk me through customs and at the end of my trip, the... read more
Highly recommend · Morocco - Apr 4 - Apr 10, 2021
Hakim has to be the best tour operator we’ve ever worked with. Responsive yet also proactive, he followed up with us regarding our trip throughout the difficult pandemic year and kept the channels of communication going despite the country being under lockdown. This was very reassuring to us. He also kept following up with our progress, and soliciting for feedback during our trip to make sure we were enjoying our time. Who does that? With most operators you have a hard time getting a... read more
Fantastic Trip to Dominican Republic During Uncertain Times! · the Dominican Republic - Mar 27 - Apr 3, 2021
We can’t say enough good things about Marta. She helped plan an unforgettable trip to the Dominican Republic in March/April 2021. We had a mix of adventure and beach relaxation!

First time in Costa Rica! My 2 teenagers and I went to Costa Rica for 12 days. Olman and Alexander did a great job in scheduling all the places and adventures I requested. From the first day to the last day in Costa Rica went smoother than I could ask.

We can't thank Alexander enough for planning an amazing vacation for our family! Everything went incredibly smoothly. We visited the Arenal Volcano, Monteverde Cloud Forest and Manual Antonio Beach. Alejandro was the best guide anyone could ask for! His superior knowledge of the animals and the plants, the geology of the area, the climate and weather patterns and the general culture of Costa Rica helped us learn so much, while having a fun time.

Carlos helped us plan our trip for March 2020, but we unfortunately had to cancel due to covid. When 2021 came around, we rebooked our trip with Maricruz. She was incredibly accommodating and tolerated all my ambivalence about traveling during covid!

We always felt like we had someone to help us out with anything and this was important to us since we'd never been to Costa Rica... read more
Our Flawless Costa Rican Vacation · Costa Rica - Feb 26 - Mar 18, 2021
Diego was amazing! We told him who we were (old but not dead) and what we wanted (more forest than beach) and he listened. His plan was a 21-day drive and stay adventure that was perfect for us. Going on a great adventure means (safely) getting out of your comfort zone – anxiety without harm. Some of the roads were narrow, steep, and twisty, but traveled without incident and minimal held breaths. The fifteen-minute walk alone through the dark forest to our Treehouse was full of... read more

Ecuador was an amazing trip in the midst of a pandemic and an uncertain time within the world. It was a much needed vacation, and not one time did we feel unsafe or at risk due to covid. Extra precautions were taken, and everything went off without a hitch. From volcanoes, to hiking, to city experiences, Amazon adventures and more, there is nothing I would change about our trip.
"Fresh Eddie" our tour guide was one of the highlights for us! He graciously accepted our nickname given to him... read more

I'm usually one to plan and book my own trips without using a travel agent service. However, I was blown away by my experience with KimKim. I was able to customize and have as much say-so in the trip planning as I wanted. Alexander was amazing to work with and his expertise for Costa Rica was top notch. He was more than accommodating to our requests and helped plan the most amazing trip. He even helped arrange our COVID test for our return flight. I would highly recommend KimKim and Alexander to anyone planning a trip to Costa Rica.

We had an absolute wonderful time using Abdullah & Karim through Kim Kim Travels. Our trip was last minute and our arraignments were partially done when I found Abdullah. His level of flexibility, expertise and execution for our visit in Morocco are well worth it! We had a beautiful journey that started off in Marrakech and through the Sahara dessert, Fes, Chefchaoun, and lastly, our departure from Casablanca. Our driver Karim was very pleasant and easy going and always willing to be flexible with our decisions of where we were traveling. Would highly recommend to all my friends and family!

Matias was amazing. Quick responses, answered all the questions we had, most before we thought to ask them. The partners he worked with were on time, friendly, and knowledgeable. The hotels we were set up in were all great, from hot tubs heated by volcanos to having breakfast with a troop of monkeys, it was places that were unique, clean and friendly. I would send anyone I know to Ecuador and I will give them Matias' contact information to make their trip as special as he made ours.

Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons · the United States - Jun 9 - Jun 14, 2019
We took our dad on a birthday trip to Yellowstone and grand Tetons and Ben (and Kim Kim) did a great job identifying awesome accommodation options and taking into account that we did not want to spend the whole trip driving. As a bonus, our trip coincided with the start of guided ranger tours so the trip timing could not have been better.
Lodging at grand Tetons, suggestions in Jackson, and off the beaten path adventures such as trout lake made a big difference in our trip. Kim Kim (and Ben)... read more
Great Trip to Chile - February · Chile - Feb 5 - Feb 14, 2020
Great Trip to Chile - February
Nicholas helped us to organise a great itinerary in Chile at very short notice due to a change in holiday destination!
During our trip we visited Santiago, Vina del Mar, the Atacama desert and then down to Patagonia;. The tours and guides were all fantastic and we managed to fit a lot in in the 10 days we had available and felt like we had seen a lot of Chile by the end of our trip.
The stand out experiences were seeing the geysers in Atacama, visiting... read more
Amazing experience with lovely people · Nepal - Feb 11 - Feb 26, 2020
Sangita, Bipin were wonderful - they were generous with their time, friendly, and looked after my brother and I very well. Every aspect of our trip was planned well and we knew that they were always available to help if we needed anything. Cannot recommend anyone more. We spent 9 days trekking the Tamang heritage trail followed by the Langtang trek with our guide Palsang and our Porter Kazu, both organised by Sangita. Trekking with knowledgable and friendly experts ensured our safety and... read more
Well organized trip. · Greece - Jul 18 - Jul 25, 2020
Well organized trip, thanks to Maria and Dmitri. Transports were smooth and punctual with excellent drivers. Our driver in Athens was extremely helpful. Host hotels were clean, comfortable, and accommodating. The farm tour in Megalochori was a surprise and delight and our host guides were excellent. A bit more information with regard to this farm for review purposes would be helpful. Thanks again!

It was very easy to plan our trip with the trip planner. We were able to choose the types of things that we wanted to do like hiking & eliminate those that we weren’t interested in doing such as no shopping. We could also choose the areas that we wanted to visit. Randall coordinated everything so we didn’t have to worry about transportation or guides. It was all included. It’s a great way to explore such a beautiful country. Our hotels were all very nice. I would recommend KimKim to arrange a trip to Costa Rica.

Where to start - this trip was perfection!!! · Costa Rica - Mar 10 - Mar 21, 2020
Where to start! This trip was perfection. From the greeting at the airport by an incredibly knowledgeable driver who gave us such insight into the area that we already felt at home by the time we arrived at Tabacon. Every tour guide we had was on time, extremely informative (not only about the specific adventure but about the country) and each one had an amazingly warm personality. We saw every animal that we had hoped to see and some we didn't even know about! We started in Arenal; then to... read more
Honeymoon in Argentina during COVID-19 · Argentina - Mar 8 - Mar 18, 2020
My husband I are traveled to Argentina for our honeymoon and Emi helped us plan the perfect itinerary. Emi had great suggestions for our getaway, and accommodated all of our requests. Unfortunately the end of your trip was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and we had to return home sooner than anticipated, but we were able to enjoy the time that we had. We thoroughly enjoyed our private tour of Buenos Aires with Federico, our private tour of the Brazilian side of Iguazu Falls. Mendoza was... read more

Oliver was great managing the whole COVID19 situation, ensured I had the most uptodate information so I could make an informed decision to leave as soon as i possibly could. And for that, I am incredibly grateful to his situational awareness. Even though I couldn't enjoy everything Colombia had to offer, I was well looked after with really great accommodation and itinerary options. Thank you Oliver!
Wonderful cycling (South Island of New Zealand) · New Zealand - Mar 1 - Mar 15, 2020
I wrote to Kim Kim re cycling in NZ having some ideas of what we wanted (and what we did not want). Valentin responded immediately and through some correspondence we planned 2 weeks cycling in Sth Island of New Zealand. He understood our needs and catered to our preferences. The choice of trails, accommodation and attention to detail was fantastic (the trip itself was amazing, so varied in scenery and types of trails. We loved the small towns, the unique accommodations and people, having our... read more
Excellent Service · Colombia - Mar 11 - Mar 19, 2020
We cannot be more impressed with the exceptional service provided by Margoth @ Aracanto on our Colombia trip. We found her on kimkim.com to help us put together a 10-day itinerary. She promptly responded to our emails, eloquently answered every little query and request and gave excellent recommendations and options for every aspect of the trip. Our itinerary was unfortunately truncated by the COVID pandemic travel restrictions but we have nothing but praise for Margoth’s concern and support... read more
Chile March 2020 · Chile - Mar 5 - Mar 12, 2020
This is the 14th day of my isolation. I left Santiago. a city then filled with smiling friendly people going about their chores and lives. to return to a place filled with fear and going deeper in civic shutdown, where some are even being encouraged to tell on one another for alleged breaches of the new normal. And I am so thankful for the ten wonderful days we spent in Chile with all of you looking out for us.
I can truly say that our visit owes much of its magic to the care and... read more
Fantastic 21 Day trip · Vietnam - Feb 27 - Mar 18, 2020
Although Andy's name is listed as our local specialist - in reality all credit goes to Ha! We had never worked with a tour company before, but KimKim came highly recommended by my brother who had used them last year. Ha worked so closely with us in the planning - showing genuine flexibility and modifying the program to our exact specifications. We were in Vietnam and Cambodia with another couple - and had a wonderful trip. Even as the pandemic spread - Ha made sure we were safe and... read more
Trekking and tiger safari · Nepal - Mar 12 - Mar 22, 2020
We did a semi custom trip (11 day) for three with some moderate trekking in Annapurna region, tiger safari in Bardia NP, with some cultural activities in Kathmandu. The trip was well organized and flexible. I only provided some general guidance on my desires and Chhewang made suggestions and tied it all together after some feedback from me. We all enjoyed the trekking and the tiger safari, where we we able to see 4 tigers in the wild over 2 days.
Our trip was interrupted by the covid-19 virus... read more
Kim Kim exceeded expectations · Costa Rica - Feb 22 - Feb 29, 2020
We had a great time in Costa Rica. Carlos did an excellent job organizing our trip. All of the hotels were wonderful and check-in was seamless. I am usually a do-it yourself travel planner, but would highly recommend KimKim for a work free trip if you would like to go multiple places.
Fantastic Trip to Vietnam! February 27-March 17 · Vietnam - Feb 27 - Mar 18, 2020
We recently returned from an amazing 3-week trip to Vietnam, with a short detour to Cambodia. Ha at KimKim was so incredibly responsive in helping us plan the trip and continuing to customize it for us all the way to the end. She made it absolutely seamless with guides and drivers greeting us exactly as planned, and the hotels she selected more than met our expectations.
Some highlights were riding around Hanoi on a motorbike (driver provided!), biking and cooking classes in Hoi An (and... read more

Thank you kimkim. I had an amazing time in Russia.
The dealings I had with kimkim in planning my trip - 18 days encompassing Saint Petersburg, Moscow, Suzdal and Vladimir - were amazingly efficient. Their responses were quick and detailed. It was great being able to deal all the time with people in Moscow and Saint Petersburg who were on the ground and able to provide quick support in those very rare moments in a trip where something goes off the rails.
Beyond Saint Petersburg, I really had... read more
Great Local Specialist - Disappointing reaction and accomodation to global COVID-19 emergency · South Africa - Mar 8 - Mar 21, 2020
I was very impressed with Stephanie. She was wonderful and i would reccommend her and book with her again. We were loving our trip but then the Government of South Africa declared a national disaster and the Canadian Government ordered all Canadians abroad to come home so we needed to leave our trip early and forego our 2 nights at Addo Elephant park, our 3 night safari at Hlosi and our flight on safair back to Cape Town. Given the circumstances, I am extremely shocked and upset that we... read more

Our first driver Otto with Desafio was great! He practiced Spanish with us the whole time so we could converse better the rest of the time. Loved our white water rafting with Steven as our guide. Then Otto safely got us to the Baldi Hotel with s restaurant recommendation in LaFortuna—LaStreet—which we tried one night—wonderful. Really enjoyed the Hot Springs at the hotel! Had a nice hike on the lava flows of the volcano and then a nice dinner at Tabacon Springs and enjoyed their springs... read more

Our guide in Yangon, Linn Linn and our bike guide Nay (apologies for spelling) were both excellent, well informed, helpful and pleasant to be with. The transfers, accommodation, food and cycling were great. The amazing temples in Bagan and the view from Popa Mountain were beautiful as were the sunsets and the river cruise.
Perfect planning, perfect execution, perfect vacation · Costa Rica - Mar 9 - Mar 16, 2020
Everything Adriana planned was exactly what we were looking for - we somehow managed to zip line, snorkel, go rafting, AND lay around on the beach. Schedules went smoothly, and when there was an update to our excursion (because of the tides), a new voucher was delivered to our hotel and we didn't miss a beat.
This was an incredible vacation. The transportation was great, the hotels were lovely, and the activities were perfect. I can't imagine planning another trip like this to Costa Rica without Adriana's guidance.
I cannot recommend this service highly enough.
Costa Rica · Costa Rica - Mar 12 - Mar 19, 2020
Kimkim made my trip to Costa Rica a dream come true. I will be using them for my next trip—for sure!! My transportation, hotels and activities were first class, and they were not possible without Kimkim’s guidance and expertise.

We had a wonderful time until Corona19 came. Pleased with the the way our change was handled. Our driver Samir was wonderful and so kind.. Loved the 3 cities we were able to visit. Did not like the accommodations in Fes but the food was great and the staff were spectacular. Would recommend the company to anyone( very efficient)
Would highly recommend you put Colombia on your trip list. · Colombia - Feb 18 - Mar 10, 2020
We were soooo impressed with the trip. Everything went smoothly. All guides and drivers were early and eagerly awaiting us. ALL Colombians were so friendly to us.
We felt safe and well taken care of the whole trip. We had a pretty aggressive agenda but enjoyed discovering beautiful Columbia visiting many different regions. The trip to Chingaza was a great last minute addition and our guide Juanita was fabulous. We LOVED Medellin region and especially the commune 13 visit- our guide... read more
Awesome family trip to Colombia · Colombia - Feb 23 - Mar 2, 2020
We had an amazing family trip to Colombia thanks to Margoth and her team. We were a party of 7, including children and grandparents, and we wanted to get a taste of everything that Colombia has to offer in an 8 day trip. Already at the planning stage Margoth completely understood what we were looking for in terms of activities, culture, nature, hotels and comfort. She put together a great trip for us and we just had to click “yes” and everything was booked and organised for us. Our trip... read more
Fantastic tour! · Jordan - Mar 9 - Mar 13, 2020
Ahh we had such a fantastic time in Jordan and the tour was great! It covered everything we wanted to do and more. Margherita was super helpful and organised our trip very efficiently. Our driver was lovely and made sure we had a good time. When there was extra things we wanted to do, it was never too much trouble. Highly recommend KimKim and will definitely be using them again in the future. Thanks to all the team,

Erin was wonderful to work with for this trip! She was extremely helpful with planning everything and making a trip that included what I was looking for and in the budget I was working with. She was very patient with me and answered all questions that I had along the way.
The times in Torres de Paine was amazing, with great weather and beautiful views. Perito Moreno glacier was also amazing!
I was thrilled with my trip. Thank you again to Erin for all your work in helping to make it happen!!

great trip tp the galapagos · Galapagos Islands - Mar 10 - Mar 16, 2020
We had a wonderful trip to the Galapagos! the trip went smooth and we always had a guide to meet us at different islands upon arrival. Our guides were helpful and great at rectifying situations. For instance, my boyfriend and I were going to go on a snorkel/dive session. He was going to dive while I snorkeled, but we were going to be on the same boat. For some reason, I was instructed by one of the boat companies to go on a different boat. I assumed we were meeting together but thought it was... read more

Local drivers arranged by Hakim were on time and courteous. Guides were also very good and informative. One minor delay was resolved promptly by Kimkim and Hakim.
We loved our Morocco trip from the... read more

Excellent trip. Amanda did an excellent job of understanding my requirements and tailoring a trip to my exact needs. She was very responsive in her communications and ensured that each aspect of the trip was handled smoothly.

Great Experience for Personalized Icelandic Vacation · Iceland - Mar 8 - Mar 13, 2020
Anuj was a great resource in helping to customize our Iceland vacation to match our expectations throughout the planning process. After our trip began, having Anuj supporting our trip was invaluable. Our trip was to the northern part of Iceland in mid-March which meant we had to adapt to weather, road closures, etc. and Anuj was there with us each step of the way helping us to cancel and rebook lodging, tours, etc. as we adapted our itinerary in real time to accommodate the weather.
