Kimkim team has provided excellent service. All scheduled activities were in time, shared guided tours were well organized and well performed. Did not have any problems while visiting Peru. Thank you and special thanks to Liz / my coordinator, who put whole package together. She even brought me a Bday gift, which was very kind of her.
Cusco Region with Julio... · Peru - Mar 7 - Mar 12, 2020
Julio was an excellent tour guide who grew up in the Cusco region and was like traveling with a family friend. He was knowledgeable about the various ruins we visited and provided great advice on dietary choices and knew when to push and when to back off on physical challenges with the high altitude. Our five days of hiking allowed for a good understanding of the region along with the natural resources, the local food and the people. This trip was customized to our desires by KimKim and I... read more
This was a 5 plus star experience! · Peru - Mar 7 - Mar 14, 2020
This was a 5 plus star experience and completely exceded my expectations. Steve worked with me with my times and desires. For example, I had no desire to spend time in Lima and wanted to maximize my time in the Jungle. Steve worked it out. We customized our time to spend it in the Sacred Valley, Macchu Pichu, and the have a jungle experience. We arrived and were greeted by our guide Aldo and Paul, the driver. They were awesome and were always doing all they could to make our experience... read more

Where do I begin? Every aspect of this experience was just fantastic! This was a Dad/Daughter adventure and we couldn't have been more pleased with this adventure. Yassine was super responsive and helpful in our planning stages. The communications and advance prep were wonderful for these first time to Morocco/Africa travelers.

Trip to Marrakech and Fes with Omar and Megan · Morocco - Feb 28 - Mar 7, 2020
This was an absolutely incredible trip! The planning done by our local specialist Megan and the service provided by our guide Omar was phenomenal. They dealt with all the hassle and logistics so that we could focus on enjoying our vacation. Our guide Omar was very knowledgeable and personable. I would highly recommend Omar and Megan to anyone else visiting Morocco!
Outstanding trip to the Galapagos · Galapagos Islands - Mar 1 - Mar 6, 2020
Thank you Edwin for organizing the perfect experience in the Galapagos for us. Our guide Karla was the best! She was knowledgeable about all aspects of the island and very sensitive to our needs. We had a great time and would highly recommend Karla as a guide!
I couldn't have asked for a better first trip to Myanmar. I can't wait to go back with KimKim! · Myanmar - Feb 6 - Feb 13, 2020
Everything was perfect, from itinerary creation, to booking, to the actual visit!
Anne is a great communicator - she listened to everything I wanted and gave me just that. She was always reachable and very helpful with everything I needed (even random stuff like printing needs).
I also loved all of my tour guides. Each one was different with their own personalities, background, experiences, etc. and it was great to get to hear so many different perspectives.

Top notch service and experience · Costa Rica - Feb 27 - Mar 9, 2020
We had top notch service with kimkim and have already recommended them to several friends. I was a bit leery using this service without firsthand knowledge of what we were getting into. But I was worried for nothing. Kristy put together a great 12 day Costa Rican itinerary for our family of five, including three teenagers! And Monica booked all
of our lodging, excursions, and in-country transportation (we took three Sansa flights...an easy and quick way to get around...and had private drivers... read more

Our Pura Vida guide in Arsenal, Christian was awesome and we were the only two people in our group that included hikes of Arenal and the hanging bridges.
Every aspect of our itinerary either met or exceeded our expectations. The one exception would be the night tour in Monteverde. We were not the only ones to say it was over-hyped. There were over 100 tourists in groups of 6-8 walking the same paths that reminded me of a “snipe” hunt.
Lodging at Arsenal was superb! Great complimentary breakfast and on-site hot spring.

Two weeks in east Australia by Judie Yamamoto and Charley Mullally
Overall, our trip to Australia, arranged by Jasmine through KimKim, was excellent. The accommodations were comfortable and for the most part spacious, modern, and conveniently located, quite more luxurious than we’d expected on the “mid-level” plan we had requested. Transportation (airport and hotel ground pickups as well as our three flights in Australia) went very smoothly, spoiling us for the return home when we had to... read more

My husband and I are avid travelers and we tend to do all the booking, organizing and trip planning on our own, however I had recently come across Kimkim's website so we decided to give them a shot.
From the start the KimKim website was user friendly and the staff were kind, informative and attentive to our needs, and trust me I am a VERY detail oriented person. We were paired with our amazing coordinator, Hsu Hlaing, who was patient with me and answered every single question I rose, which... read more
The Grand Tour of Morocco! · Morocco - Feb 11 - Feb 25, 2020
Our drive for the entire trip was Samad. Though not a full guide he did have a lot of local information and in essence helped make the trip as great as it was. He has a great command of English, He was willing to stop to allow my wife to take roadside photos. His road skills were excellent and we never fear for our life while he was driving. We did have local guide in Fes - Hakim. He took us into the many winding streets and alleys that was a wonder that he didn't get lost. He was very... read more

I am also extremely grateful to Chris Gwinner, of Old Town Outfitters (OTO), who tailored this adventure for my group. His professionalism,... read more

The trip to Peru was fantastic. Cesar Surco, our guide post Lima, was exceptional in every way. He was patient, kind, knowledgeable and an absolute genius with the camera. He was filled with excellent recommendations of what to do (and what not to do). We were never rushed and yet, got to see and do everything. He is a true local and took us to places we would never have seen on our own. I can't stress how great he is.

Our local specialist Deborah was fantastic in helping us organise the trip from start to finish. We encountered a few teething problems along the way to do with booking of flights but all issues were resolved to our total satisfaction without any fuss. Deborah also arranged excellent choice of on the ground personal guides and car transfers which all went very smoothly, they were all very professional and knowledgeable. All in all we would highly recommend Deborah and her team and would like to thank her for making our honeymoon so memorable in South Africa.

Winter wonderland · Iceland - Mar 2 - Mar 8, 2020

How Colombia captured my heart · Colombia - Mar 3 - Mar 8, 2020
Five days before flying to Colombia I found Kimkim online and was encouraged by the favourable reviews. I like that there was a form to decide if it was the best option for me within my budget. I was contacted by Natalia who made an itinerary with all the things I wanted to do; I’m grateful for them making my stay in Colombia AWESOME. I’m truly grateful for the itinerary, accomodation in fantastic locations and the BEST local guides.

We had a great time with our Kim Kim team. The trip was tailored to our needs and we saw everything we wanted to during the week of our trip.

Have already recommended this to several friends.

Valentine created an awesome itinerary for us! If I were to pick out the best highlight (which is hard because everything was awesome!) I'd say it was the Waimarino glow worm evening kyak tour which was absolutely fabulous. However, everything was great from the moment we arrived in Auckland, to the whale and dolphin watching, to the wine tasting on Waiheke island, to the Hobbiton movie set, hiking around Wai O Tapu, and hanging out next to the stunning ocean in Tauranga. We had an amazing time in our 7 days in NZ!
Chile Lake District Trip · Chile - Feb 27 - Mar 5, 2020
Guides and activities were outstanding! Hotel in Puerto Varas was fine, but not exceptional -- very much enjoyed the hotel in Pucon. We had to defer the trip for a year after a preceding trip to Antarctica was deferred -- Oxana was extremely helpful in working with us on those changes. We did have some confusion with internal Chile airline reservations -- caused by different requests within the travel group -- also some confusion with final payments (likely caused by the fact that we had to defer). Overall, it was a very positive experience.
Wonderful Christmas Vacation! · Thailand - Dec 22 - Dec 29, 2019
Ha was awesome from the start! She offered a lot of great initial options, and we worked together over a few weeks to make this vacation everything we wanted it to be. We were spoiled from the moment we met Mr. Sauce and his driver at the Bangkok airport, when we met Ms. Mew and her driver at the Chiang Mai train station, and until our last driver dropped us off at the Bangkok airport at the end of our vacation. And Ha was in constant contact with me the entire time to make sure everything was perfect. I would highly recommend Ha and her team!

We will definitely be using KimKim again.
Visiting the Lake District · Chile - Feb 27 - Mar 5, 2020
Overall the trip to the Lake District was enjoyable with several hickups. We wrote to you about the discrepancy on Day 2 between what was originally quoted about lunch being included and still have not received any answer or verification of that. The original quote on which we paid stated lunch was included and then we found out it was not. The stay at Casa Karfu in Punta Arenas was not enjoyable. The hotel is very noisy, ALL the floor boards squeak, the walls are thin, and you can hear... read more
Kudos to the Lanka Kim Kim Team · Sri Lanka - Feb 9 - Feb 27, 2020
We were delighted with our Sri Lanka trip. The organization was great and when we were dissatisfied with one of our hotels, Yasantha quickly made alternate arrangements that were perfect. Our guide/driver, Kumar added to the overall enjoyment of our visit to Sri Lanka. He is an excellent reflection on the Kim Kim operation, along with Yasantha.
There are too many highlights to cover. We REALLY enjoyed the Horton Plains hike; and, of course, Sigiriya, and the cave temples of Dambulla.
Carlos was excellent! · Costa Rica - Feb 21 - Mar 1, 2020
Carlos was so great! He gave us a ton of options before we booked our trip, and then made sure everything went smoothly thereafter. He also quickly jumped in to help out with any bumps in the road while we were on our trip.
Sara is the one to use. Superb · Jordan - Feb 28 - Mar 2, 2020
I had never been to Jordan, but after some research went for Kimkim. Went with them and Sara(h) was the agent.
She is outstanding. organised an outstanding trip, form collection in Israel to dropping off back in Israel. Great suggestions too. Definitely will recommend her to anyone going to Jordan and Petra. Stayed in a Bedouin camp near Little Petra which was very good, and a lot cheaper than the overpriced hotels in Petra as well.

We recently used kimkim.com for our recent 11-day trip in late February/early March, 2020 to Costa Rica. Alberto Molina, the local specialist, was really easy to work with and easy to contact with any questions. A few days into our trip, we had a few questions and Karol with Green World Adventures, and she was very quick to get back with us. She helped us several times during our trip and adjusted our tours when we had questions. She was always handy and helpful.

Fantastic Northern Norway Tour · Norway - Feb 22 - Mar 1, 2020
When my son said that he had a lifelong dream to see the northern lights, I knew that I'd need the help of a travel agent familiar with northern Scandinavia. A quick internet search led me to Kimkim, which had already done the work of planning the outline for a perfect trip. I had never used an internet based travel agent before, but the idea of using agents based where we would be traveling was quite appealing so I gave them a chance. I was very glad I did.

For the next two days she provided an energetic and welcoming introduction to Bogota.

Vietnam and Cambodian Adventures with Kimkim · Vietnam - Feb 13 - Mar 1, 2020
We couldn't have had a better experience than we did in Vietnam and Cambodia thanks to Kimkim. All of our travels went smoothly with people meeting us at the airports and transferring us to our hotels. The local guides were all fantastic with good English skills and great knowledge to share. We especially loved Hui in Hoi An and Se Vannesak in Siem Reap. The accomodations were wonderful and very well located so we could walk to city centers for dinners. We had a great five weeks on the road thanks to Kimkim. Much thanks and appreciation to Will for setting it all up.

The activities were interesting and fun as well. Everything went as planned and we could just relax and enjoy the trip knowing every detail was well taken care of. We will likely never plan our own international trips again.

Between the high end accommodation, fabulous food, wildlife and beaches couldn’t have asked for anything better. Can’t wait to book our next trip.

Argentina Trip · Argentina - Feb 6 - Feb 20, 2020
Emilce was very responsive and gave us great service. The trip itself was very enjoyable. the only wrinkle was that we had expressed an interest in hiking anddespite the fact the south of Argentina has lots of great hiking, the "hiking experiences" were mostly bus rides to scenic places.

First - we will definitely use Kimkim again for future travels! Thank you for a well-planned vacation.
Secondly - Chio was responsive and helpful - nice work! Our only complaint is that everyone knew that Tayrona National Park was closed in February - apparently it's an annual thing. If we had known this from the beginning, we might have altered our itinerary. We did not get informed until January. We really loved the place we stayed outside of Tayrona Park, but the River Don Diego... read more
An remarkable experience of Adventure and Hospitality · Iceland - Feb 4 - Feb 12, 2020
It is one thing to book and adventure into the unknown to try to figure it out for yourself. It was my intention to do so, but the reality is that it helps to have somebody at least give a map or a general guide of what to look out for.

We combined our trip with a trip to Sagada. (8 day tour including travel to and from Manila.
Our tour guide Marvin is a local and answers all questions regarding the Ifugao region.
Unfortunately the day we arrived in Sagada all tourist attractions got shut down due to the covit-19.

Go to Italy! · Italy - Feb 12 - Feb 21, 2020
Just back from an amazing family vacation! Emi’s recommendations and planning allowed us to see and experience parts of Rome, Milan, Turin and Florence - both through relaxed self exploration within the cities and small group tours for daylong excursions in smaller towns nearby. The hotels, and train travel she organized made it easy to relax and enjoy the trip. Questions arose while we were traveling, and she was quick to reply - so nice to have a friendly local resource! Would definitely recommend and use this service again for future trips. Thank you Emi!

The organization and schedule met our requests. Abdellah perfectly understood whate we wanted and organized everything accordingly. The places we visited were magnificent. The roads and hotels we stayed in surpassed our expectations in most cases. Our driver, Karim, was great. He was very professional, respectful and with a great attitude. He made our long trips enjoyable. Also, he is a very good driver and has a lot of patience. Thank you for making this an unforgettable trip.
Our trip to Spain, planned by Patricia of Your Trip to Spain · Spain - Feb 12 - Feb 23, 2020
Our trip to Spain, planned by Patricia of Your Trip to Spain, was perfect in every way. Every place we visited was memorable: Madrid, Toledo, Seville, Cordoba, Ronda, Granada and finally Barcelona. All of the hotels we stayed in were centrally located as we requested, just steps away from main attractions. In Madrid, we were so close to the Plaza Mayor. In Seville and Granada, very close to the cathedrals and historic areas. Every driver was on time, and all the guides were exceptional:... read more

I had 3 excellent guides: Maria Alejandro Nariño in Bogota, Juan David Martinez in Leticia, and Mauro Hernandez Aguinago in Medellin! The Lost City of Colombia Trek guides, Juan and Checo (sp) also did an excellent job!! I hope that the friendships I established with them will continue into the future:-)
Created our own cruise "excursions" · Thailand - Jan 18 - Jan 29, 2020
We decided to create our own "excursions" while traveling through Asia on a cruise. Linh helped us plan activities for three of the ports we visited. We gave her our destinations and she gave us various options to pick and choose from. Our first port was in Koh Sumai, Thailand, where Mr. Sonthaya gave us a great tour of all the island highlights and brought us to a beautiful beach side restaurant to enjoy the view and some local food.
Our second stop was in Laem Chabang, the port south... read more

Stellar trip to South Island New Zealand · New Zealand - Feb 8 - Feb 17, 2020
Had a great experience with KimKim and Eloise who booked our travel for our honeymoon in New Zealand. As a seasoned traveler, I usually book my own travel, however the ease and quality of our trip reserved with kimkim has forever changed how I will book future trips! We gave Eloise the places and activities we were interested in and she put together a stellar itinerary where we had flexibility but structure to our trip. It felt like we were on a private self-guided tour. We wanted to hike and... read more
Experiance in the Amazon · Brazil - Feb 15 - Feb 22, 2020
Paulo, our local representative for KimKim, really helped us out after one of our flights were cancelled. He worked into the evening from home to make sure we were looked after. When you are a foreigner who doesn't know the language of the country this is how a trip can be ruined or fantastic memories can be created for a life time. Paulo was amazing.
Cynthia Lebrao, our English tour guide, at the Pousada Uacari was amazing. Her experience with the area and because she was a biology... read more
Cancun Vacation · Mexico - Feb 16 - Feb 21, 2020
Melina and Sibila were excellent. They answered all my questions promptly and spent time with me to plan out activities. Melina was also very responsive during the week while I was on vacation as we made some adjustments to the itinerary. Overall, I was very satisfied.

We had a fantastic family trip to Antigua & Lake Atitlan, Guatemala · Guatemala - Feb 16 - Feb 23, 2020
We just got back from our week-long family trip to Guatemala. We had an incredible time, due in large part to the efforts of Eduardo of kimkim who set us up with fun things to do, fabulous guides and a great driver, all for a reasonable price. We travel a fair amount but generally wing it when it comes to activities and getting around but using kimkim is likely to become my new modus operandi when planning family trips for our family of 4 (2 parents + 2 daughters ages 11 and 15). It was so... read more
Myanmar 2020 · Myanmar - Jan 26 - Feb 9, 2020

We spent a wonderful week in Colombia with stops in Cartagena, Minca (El Dorado reserve), and Mucura (Punta Faro hotel). We highly recommend Bazurto Market and National Aviary. Walking the streets of Cartagena was a joy. The many murals, buildings, people, shops, street vendors, and restaurant’s were all wonderful. I would recommend spending 2 full days and 3 nights in El Dorado with a 1 full day in Minca. Mucura was a wonderful and relaxing island. Punta Faro was amazing. The staff... read more
Where do I start? ... · Jordan - Feb 18 - Feb 22, 2020
Where do I start? I stumbled upon Kimkim while researching a trip to Jordan. With nothing to lose I entered my wish list for the journey and thought no more about it, except that maybe it would be too expensive.
What a surprise. I was contacted by Carmen Sholten at in2jordan who helped me refine my wish list into something more practical for the time available. My questions were not treated as too silly, no request for added extras too difficult and I felt like I was the only client going to... read more
Great trip! · Morocco - Feb 3 - Feb 10, 2020
I used kimkim as part of a group of friends and family, I wasn’t the primary planner, but prior to the trip I loved the kimkim website with ability to have an online group conversation about the trip. We could ask questions about accommodations, weather, tipping customs, payments, etc. I thought it was a great communication tool. Once in Morocco, it was great to have a wide variety of amazing and varied accommodations and experiences-the more modern city of Rabat, the ancient Roman ruins... read more
Nepal tour · Nepal - Feb 2 - Feb 15, 2020
Sangita was so great from the start. She promptly and patiently answered all questions and concerns when we were coming up with the itinerary. Together with Bipin and Rabin, they gave us a memorable trip that introduced us to how wonderful Nepal is. We hope we'll have the chance to return.
A great experience with Vive Atacama! · Chile - Feb 16 - Feb 20, 2020
We had a great tour with our guide, Rodrigo, and our driver, Oscar. The two had a great rapport and were both very friendly. Our favorite sight was the Rainbow Valley (which was not on the original itinerary, and we only ended up going because the Taito Geyser Field was closed), because Rodrigo took us on some paths that most tourists don't go on, and we had the whole place to ourselves. Additionally, Rodrigo has studied geology in university, so he was very knowledgeable on the rock formations and other geologic details we saw throughout the whole trip.
Our trip was amazing! · France - Feb 10 - Feb 18, 2020
Our trip was Amazing! Simon was so responsive, both before AND during our trip. I've traveled a lot but never used a travel agent before and what a difference it makes! Thanks to Simon, KimKim, and the So Provence! So Alps! team, we enjoyed sights and experiences we would not have planned ourselves. All of our guides were very knowledgeable and experienced. We had a great trip.
A Memorable trip to a welcoming country. · Jordan - Feb 12 - Feb 17, 2020
In response to your request:
As to my Rami, He was great and I recommend him without reservation. As to Wadi Rum, worth it and am glad that i went. Petra, Town Seasons Hotel, a great place, one that you want to keep. the Jerash trip was really a delight. The only down side, my guide in Petra, Gul. He knew his history but I had been under the impression that he would be with me for 3 hours: he was not. After 2 hours and 15 minutes he told me I could find my way, and he left. Not what I... read more
Extremely Organized and Professional Company · Ecuador - Feb 2 - Feb 16, 2020
I have never used a travel agency to plan a vacation before, so initially, I was a little nervous. However, it turned out to be a fantastic experience from the beginning to the end. Edwin helped me plan my trip and was very responsive and flexible. He was easy to communicate with friendly and professional. While the booking and planning part when well, I still wasn't sure how it would be when I got there. Waiting for me at the airport was my pickup and local guide, Dario. Dario was extremely... read more
Perfectly Planned Trip! · Patagonia - Feb 9 - Feb 16, 2020
Thank you to Erin and Julia for planning a spectacular trip. The process was so smooth and problem free that we never had to reach out to the kimkim team once for help. Every time we went to our new destination, the drivers were always ready to pick us up, the hotels knew we were coming and the guides were ready to pick us up at the designated time without fail.
I'm so glad I stumbled upon kimkim via a random google search after our trip with another vendor fell through (they had a strict... read more
Amazing trip to Guatemala with Oldtown Oldfitters · Guatemala - Feb 1 - Feb 9, 2020
My experience at KimKim began with Chris Gewinner's support and advice, he was always super attentive and helped us create the best plan according to our wishes and expectations.

Exploring Morocco's Cities · Morocco - Feb 4 - Feb 9, 2020
Our local specialists Brahim and Hakim were wonderful. We planned our trip very quickly through kimkim and it was seamless.

The trip plan was detailed and we had all the vouchers and documents we needed way before departure. Great professional service provided by Orion Trek.
The two guided tours arranged for us in Marrakech and Fes were fantastic. Our guides were very friendly and... read more
Fantastic experience with kimkim's team in Nepal · Nepal - Jan 20 - Jan 24, 2020
Our party of 4 adults from Thailand were in Nepal for our first time for 4 nights and we all had a safe and wonderful time thanks to kimkim and the team. As the organizer, it wasn't easy to choose a local tour company because there are so many to screen, but I was very happy to have chosen kimkim and this team. Pre-trip, the entire coordination process such as emails back and forth, queries, payment etc was very smooth. I love kimkim's email communication system which basically makes life... read more
Five days in majestic Morocco · Morocco - Feb 4 - Feb 9, 2020
Hakim & Brahim pieced together our trip based on our desired cities and worked it perfectly around the flights we already had booked. Each place we visited was as compelling and engrossing as the next. On the night we arrived, we met at the Riad and it was the most beautiful room I think I've ever stayed in. It had blue marble walls and a shower fir for a king. That evening we ate at a restaurant called Nomad, which had an open upstairs sitting area with really cool views of the city.... read more

My husband and I did the 8-day Imperial cities Private tour with our amazing tour guide/ driver/ security officer all-in-one extraordinaire- Ismail. He has thought of everything we could possibly want and need and nothing was ever too much trouble for him. There was such genuine care and concern for our comfort and well-being as travellers and we felt extremely well looked after. We would recommend having Ismail as a guide for anyone wanting to explore the region as new or return... read more

Our 3 week self-drive trip through Nicaragua ... · Nicaragua - Jan 27 - Feb 16, 2020
Our 3 week self-drive trip through Nicaragua organised by Lucia at the local tour company Vapues through kimkim was excellent and exceeded our expectations. The initial discussions with Lucia about our interests and pace of travel were quickly understood and an appropriate itenery with realistic travel expectations proposed, negotiated, agreed, and most importantly delivered.
Despite our late arrival in Managua, the Vapues staff were there to assist with the 4WD booking and get us off to a... read more
Patagonia Highlights · Patagonia - Feb 9 - Feb 16, 2020
Overall we had an amazing trip to Patagonia. Laura and Julia were extremely responsive when we needed their assistance throughout the trip. We usually plan our trips and navigate countries on our own, so this was a new experience for us. Not having to think about anything...and just being picked up at the airport and hotels was great. Our experiences with the various guides and drivers and most hotels were all positive.
Such a beautiful part of the world!
The only reason I can’t give 5... read more
8 days in Colombia · Colombia - Feb 9 - Feb 16, 2020
Laura and the rest of the KimKim staff were incredible and easy to work with throughout the planning phase of our trip and the trip itself. They were flexible in planning as we wanted to spend less time in the large cities and more time in the countryside. Salento was the major highlight for our trip and our guide, Christian, was a pleasure to spend two days with. We highly recommend the Cocora Valley and the surrounding towns including Filandia. Our guide, Carlos, in Medellin was... read more
