One week in Peru · Peru - Feb 8 - Feb 15, 2020
I want to give a lot of credit to the organizers of our trip. Everything went like clockwork. People picked us up and ferried us exactly when they said so. All our guides were so nice and very well informed about their culture and history. Magaly, Rony, Maria and Julio were all great. We loved all the hotels especially in Cusco at San Blas where they warmed our sheets with hot water bottles.
We packed a lot in in one week and everything we visited was awe inspiring. Nazca lines, Machu... read more
Pura Vida indeed! · Costa Rica - Jan 30 - Feb 15, 2020
From start to finish - the initial enquiry, through the planning and amendments to delivery and experience - just brilliant. Randall responded to my every enquiry, request and for reassurance. The mix of activities, rest days, hotels and places was just perfect. Driving ourselves gave us added freedom to see more of the beautiful country that is Costa Rica. We met lovely, welcoming people, ate good food and enjoyed the stunning scenery along the Caribbean coast, interior and Pacific coast. We... read more
First time private itinerary excursion into Morocco · Morocco - Jan 24 - Jan 28, 2020
I booked in July 2019 , for a trip in late January 2020, thru Kim Kim and got referred to Sharon at Moroccan Immersions. She was very attentive and booked me the experience I wanted for my first time to Morocco. I was picked up at Tangier airport by Mubarek, a really personable Berber, who drove me to a bank and ATM and then to see the seaside towns on our way to the blue city of Chefchauen. My accommodations at Riad Hicham were really nice. My only complaint is that there is NO heat in any... read more
Cuba was a nice place to get away from being connected all the time · Cuba - Jan 16 - Jan 20, 2020
Cuba was a nice place to get away from being connected all the time. The great weather is a huge plus.
Usually, I personally prefer mid-budget, backpacking style trips, but I was with family and saw that Cuba is easier to see with a guide, so I opted for a guided tour. For my first time in Cuba, I wanted to see a little bit of everything, so I asked for an itinerary which included Havana, Viñales, and the beach. This itinerary is a very common one, and the price appears to be similar to tour... read more

This would be a 5 star review except the questions are about booking experience and I had one glitch when asking to change the excursion one day and continued to get a stock itinerary returned to me. Eventually the itinerary was changed but it made me wonder if Esteban was listening to our request.
The actual trip was excellent and I would give 5 star review to Columbus Luxury Travel for our guides, itinerary, and attention to details of our privately guided tour.

Very happy with our trip to Peru! · Peru - Jan 25 - Feb 2, 2020
We were very happy with our trip to Peru. Mily in particular was amazing. she was very responsive before the trip and made an effort to meet us in person once we got to Peru. Our activities ended up being just like on the trip description and while we did not encounter any issues, Mily made it obvious that she would be available for any issues that may have come up. We will recommend Mily to any friends or family that we have for any future Peru trips. Additionally our tour guide Cesar was... read more

After finding myself en route to Santiago for work, a friend thought, "you should go to Patagonia and take some photos..." I hadn't thought about it until that moment... and with only 3 weeks out, I didn't think it remotely possible. That's when another friend passed along kimkim's info.
I truly didn't think it possible to put together such a well thought out, well planned adventure with so little time. But that's exactly what Erin was able to create... Essentially, pulling a rabbit out of a... read more
Amazing trip · Morocco - Feb 3 - Feb 10, 2020
We had a fantastic trip! We loved every place we stayed - they were all different so we got to experience a variety of designs. Our driver, Mohammed, was fantastic. Very patient and accommodating. The trip generally went very smoothly given the amount of territory we covered. The staff even went out of their way to assist when one person in our group had an unexpected medical issue.
Morocco is a beautiful country - I would definitely go back!
Fabulous time in Cartagena! · Colombia - Feb 4 - Feb 12, 2020
Andrea helped us put together a fabulous trip! The big component that we were concerned about was transportation, and all of our transfers were on time and completely seamless. Andrea responded in a timely manner and was very flexible in making adjustments to our trip beforehand, and while we were in Cartagena. I’m so glad that she recommended Punta Faro because it was exactly what we were looking for and was a tropical paradise. We will definitely use kimkim again to help plan the logistics and get recommendations for future trips!
Very enjoyable, well planned and executed trip. · Sri Lanka - Feb 3 - Feb 12, 2020
Our guide/driver LaLa was very professional, always on time and drove with great care. The hotels recommended were excellent throughout. We restricted ourselves to the southern part of Sri Lanka which worked well for us as distances between our stops were short but take a long time. We spent a long time sitting in the car where every town looked the same. Sri Lanka is very green and surprisingly to us very clean unlike other similar countries. The people throughout were fabulous, happy... read more
First Class Service Every Step of the Way · Ecuador - Jan 23 - Feb 6, 2020
We have so much to share regarding the start to finish adventure that Isabel planned for us. I know she was there in the background managing every leg of the trip and I only wish we could have thanked her in person. Planning with Isabel was easy with 2 way back and forth communication.

All the guides at the different cities were great and had many interesting facts to share. The accommodations exceeded all expectations. Everything about the trip fantastic. Yassine did a great job of keeping us informed during the planning process and was very responsive during the trip when we had questions on tipping.

Adriana did an extremely good job at tailoring the trip to my desires. All the tours, hotels and transfers were excellent that were set up. Since I emphasized hiking and outside activities, all was perfect. She was receptive to my overall plans and her picks for my activities were excellent.
Thanks for you work on setting this up!

Awesome Experience in Costa Rica!!! · Costa Rica - Jan 21 - Feb 4, 2020
This was a fantastic trip! Our family was in Costa Rica for 15 days in January 2020. Our local guide was Randall Jiminez, and he was great.
The whole KimKim experience was really easy to deal with. We established how long we wanted to go for, as well as a preliminary budget. Randall gave us some ideas to start with, as it was our first time in CR.
We wound up doing what we later found to be (from other travelers) a pretty standard sampling of CR. We started in Arenal, staying in La Fortuna,... read more

Natalia was very helpful, caring, and effective in working with us to plan this adventure the Colombian Andes. Even after the trip began, she maintained contact with us to ensure that we were having a great time and that things were running smoothly. She was quick to rectify a tiny glitch in scheduling. The tour guides she arranged for us were wonderful, especially the young man in Barichara.
Costa Rica · Costa Rica - Feb 2 - Feb 8, 2020
I had an amazing travel experience in Costa Rica! I was there for about a week and felt like I was able to see and do so much during my time there. During my trip I saw many different types of birds, sloths, monkeys, a Quetzal, and so much more. I traveled to San Jose, Monteverde, La Fortuna, and Arenal and saw volcanos, jungles and cloud forests. This was my first time booking with KimKim and it was relaxing to know that everything was booked and planned for by our travel specialist.... read more

Nicholas was always accessible, and the tour company made everything hassle-free. Thanks, Nicholas.
Excellent arrangements and experiences · Vietnam - Jan 12 - Jan 20, 2020
We used KimKim for our first visit to Vietnam because they use local people as tour arrangers and guides, and their reviews seemed to reflect the sort of trip we were interested in. Ms Thuy, who set everything up for us, and our guides, Mr. Nhan in the north, Ms. Tra My in the center of the country, and Mr. Loan in the south, were all exceptional resources and teachers.
Ms. Thuy suggested the itinerary, worked with us to make sure we could do what we wanted, made all of the arrangements... read more

The first time using KimKim for mine & my Mum’s 10 day trip to Thailand. I had visited the country a few times but it was a first for my Mum & therefore I wanted to incorporate places that I had been to that I thought Mum should experience as a first-timer, with places that I hadn’t been. We only had 10 days but decided to cover 3 areas, Bangkok (city life), Chang Mai (Countryside) & Koh Samui (beach).

I would just like to say that I work in marketing for a tourism DMO and have been in the hospitality industry for 10+ years - Cote was one of the best guides I have ever encountered. She was organized, genuine, hospitable, knowledgeable and she intuitively knew what our group needed at all aspects of the trip. I cannot stress... read more
Flexible planning meets your needs · Ecuador - Jan 7 - Jan 26, 2020
Lots of pre-planning emails with Isabel resulted in a beautiful trip. Two little glitches along our 3-week mainland trip were resolved very quickly. Our guide/driver Marco was knowledgeable , and when we asked for a deviation, he knew if it was do-able. Wonderful stays at Les terrazzas de Dana in Mindo (recommend Chocolate massage), Hacienda Porvenir(beautiful, peaceful lounge and hiking outside your door.) Thursday market at Sasqisili was fun.

Diego was really fantastic! There is no way I could have made it up & down Acatenango without him.
He is truly an expert , and gave me encouragement and great instructions. He was fun to be with for all those hours
AMAZING Experience!! · Chile - Feb 3 - Feb 7, 2020
Cote our guide was fantastic! She set a great pace and made our time very enjoyable even through the more demanding parts of the trek. Most memorable is the lookout on grey glacier, French valley, and the secret lookout Cote took us for the towers, not busy at all which made it really great. 10/10 would recommend to family or friends that are interested!

Great trip and guide and local people who provided services as per the plan
Hotels all good with one exception on the last night when a local disco partied all night preventing sleep. This should have been known easily by Kim Kim with a little bit of research into reviews of the hotel by other people. This hotel should NOT be used again. Very disappointed that our trip conclude on this sour note

South Island, New Zealand 16 days 19 January through 03 February, 2020. Kimkim organized our self drive 16 day trip of South Island. It was perfect from start to finish. All the BnBs were fabulous. Having a local NZ phone was a great addition for contacting hosts of our arrivals and to check on excursions. Promt refund issued for a cancelled excursion. Would highly recommend and would use again to put a trip together.

Fantastic Uganda trip thanks to KimKim/Natureissan and Vivian! · Uganda - Jan 22 - Feb 1, 2020
We just returned from an amazing trip to Uganda. Vivian was a true pleasure to work with. She is super responsive and planned us a first-class trip with one week notice. She arranged for the best guide ever in Hamid, who stopped us up at the airport and showed us all over his country for 12 days. We saw the rare African shoebill, chimpanzees in Kibale, lions and elephant in QE park, rare golden monkeys in MGhahinga--each a special trek or exploration. We stayed in beautiful lodges, especially... read more
Good Trip · Australia - Jan 20 - Jan 24, 2020
I very much enjoyed the trip. I would have like to attend the Dinner in Forest with the aborigines but it wasn't an option. The only thing I didn't enjoy is the hotel in Cairns, it was a bit outdated and the bed was uncomfortable. Our Guide form Billy Tea safari was excellent and very knowledgeable.

Negatives （in no particular order）
1. No electricity or air conditioning in jungle
2. The driver from Quito to spoke no English
3. The hotel in Alausi was very bad.
4. The return schedule from the jungle to the airport quite poorly calculated and created unnecessary stress with us nearly missing our flight

Yogesh has been very good and helpful, he made my whole trip. Everything went exactly as in the itinerary, except for a minor mistake on Temple Tree Hotel check out and pick up time. The hotel staff told me the wrong time which was one and half hour earlier than the arranged. The last day photograph tour was the best, far beyond my exception. The guide was a super kind and knowledgeable gentleman. He was the best during this trip.
Overall, great experience. I will surely consider Social Tour next time in Nepal.

Hsu was very responsive and offered several itineraries as I explored possibilities. Once I settled on one she failed in details of activities, lodging, and travel very well! Our guide in Bagan was outstanding. Her knowledge of the area was superb and she filled our days til sunset making sure we were happy with activities. Our guide in Chin State was also good but we finished by 3:00 one day and while friendly and informative he was a bit quiet.

My January 2020 trip to Jordan was a great experience. The natural and historical sights were breathtaking - especially Petra, the Dead Sea, and Wadi Rum.
The trip went so well because of the patience, attention-to-detail, and local experience of Sarah who planned and co-ordinated the arrangements for me.

Our trip to Norway was absolutely wonderful. I already knew where we wanted to go and what we wanted to see before I contacted Ingrid. She was instrumental in several crucial ways: She helped me book our flights within Norway; she arranged for the train tickets to Flam and Bergen, as well as the tickets for the trip on the Fjord; and she arranged a local guide for a city tour in Oslo, Bergen and Tromso. She also helped me choose hotels in each city. Her choices were perfect. The hotels... read more

I visited Morocco for 12 days in December and had a wonderful time, thanks to a large part due to the services provided by Morocco Immersion Tours.
Let’s start with trip planning: I travel a fair bit (had been on the road for weeks) and had left booking this itinerary to November!

almost all of Costa Rica in a week · Costa Rica - Jan 19 - Jan 26, 2020
Had an amazing time in Costa Rica! Loved all of our excursions! White water rafting on the sarapiqui River was my favorite! Hiking the 1968 lava field in Arenal was both amazing and disappointing as we weren’t one of the lucky few (per year! Haha!) to see a glimpse of the volcano’s peak. Ziplining in the cloud forest of Monteverde at sky adventures was an experience I will never forget because I was shaking from both fear, excitement, and the chilly temperatures.

All activities was good.

Vi did an absolutely fantastic job preparing our itinerary for Patagonia in January 2020. She was accommodating to our preferences (everything from date preferences to hotels to activities), and she served as a resource for additional activities and sights to experience during our time there. When we ran into issues with planned excursions, she went out of her way to find alternative solutions for us. I couldn't have imagined a better way to have spent 9 days in Patagonia. Thank you, Vi, for the trip of a lifetime.
Easy and Convenient Planning · Patagonia - Dec 28 - Jan 1, 2020
Planning and booking our trip on kimkim was so easy and convenient. Visiting Patagonia can be complicated and you should ideally book everything months in advance since the campsites and refugios fill up. Since we didn't book far in advance, kimkim was super helpful in securing everything we needed. We did the 5-day W Hike and came home with lifelong memories. Having a guide show us the ins and outs of the park was great and super helpful when buses didn't show up when they were supposed to... read more

December in Norway · Norway - Dec 4 - Dec 13, 2019
Traveling to Norway in December presents its own unique challenges - mostly due to the fact that the weather is unpredictable (which we knew going into things)- but everything that could be controlled was handled smoothly and efficiently through Kimkim.

Said our driver/guide was excellent very knowledgeable and easy to talk to alongside being a very good driver, my Mum sometimes gets travel sick but had no issues on the trip. Said was always on time or on the one occasion traffic held him up he kept us informed which wasn't a problem anyway. He was always incredibly polite and accomodating, we really couldn't have asked for a better guide.
The trip avoided tourist traps and we really felt we saw the 'real' Morocco... read more

Family vac in Costa Rica · Costa Rica - Jan 17 - Jan 24, 2020
Kim Kim was amazing. Very prompt in responding to our request. The bookings and hotels were just what we wanted and perfect for our family vacation. The only challenge we encountered was several of the guides only spoke Spanish yet were very helpful to try and accommodate our needs. Costa Rica was beautiful! Great family place to vacation.
Wonderful Experience from our Trip to Peru · Peru - Dec 26 - Jan 1, 2020
My wife and I used Kimkim for our honeymoon to Peru. Their services, prices, availability of their staff and willingness to accommodate our travel arrangements were beyond wonderful. Booking our trip and mapping each stop, the length of the stay for each city, the mode of transportation through Peru, and the tickets for attractions and local flights was very easy and comprehensive. Across Peru, their team was friendly, on time, extremely knowledgeable about every site we visited and so very... read more

Cant say enough good things about this service or our interactions with Andrea. This was the first time we traveled with our adult children as a Christmas present. Lots of different personalities and interests. Andrea took time to interview me. Asked lots of questions and helped design a week with something for everyone.
We spent time in Cartagena and the Rosario Islands. Our accommodations were lovely and all our excursions well planned with terrific guides.
Thank you for all you did

Delightful experience · Nepal - Jan 15 - Jan 19, 2020
Firstly planning our trip with Kim Kim was a delight. The team really asked the right questions and understood what we were looking for in an itinerary. Amanda answered all my detailed questions about safety and they were able to use their local knowledge to suggest the best way to customise our experience. The accommodation exceeded our expectations in terms of cleanliness and luxury. We were given full disclosure regarding the eco lodge not having hot running water but the warmth of the... read more
We loved our Moroccan trip with KimKim. · Morocco - Dec 30 - Jan 13, 2020
We loved our Moroccan trip with KimKim.
Organising the itinerary was easy with Sharon as she was flexible and responsive to our timelines and special interests. We were pleased to see Hicham at the arrivals gate because I had read in reviews that he was a great guide and driver and that turned out to be spot on correct. We may have driven him mad with all our questions (sorry Hicham) but he was at all time super professional and such a great calm driver in the sometimes not so calm traffic. ... read more
10 nights of winter in Norway! · Norway - Dec 28 - Jan 6, 2020
The help we had planning our winter trip to Norway was amazing. Right from the beginning our thoughts were heard and ideas were given to make it all work. Fridur was super helpful and responsive. Our bookings all worked seamlessly and were in great locations.
Fortunately the rain stopped for our walk with an expert in Bergen - which was so interesting and informative - Fartein from Ethical Travel Portal was a great guide and easy to be with. We really loved our time in Bergen and the Bergen... read more

Randall did a fantastic job setting up this trip for 2 couples. The hotels were top notch-Hotel Arenal resort- a very nice property with spacious rooms. Belmar Hotel-Monteverde great views, good food- an ecocentric property, very pleasant staff. La Mansion- Manuel Antonio- a nice property with great views. Staff are nice people but need significant training. The first room they wanted to give one of us had broken AC and a broken sliding door. It took some convincing to change rooms. Bar... read more
Great time in Colombia! · Colombia - Dec 28 - Jan 5, 2020
I've worked with Chio from the agency and she has been really awesome.
My husband and I went to Colombia from 12/28 to 1/5/20. This was our very first time to South America and very first to Colombia. I was looking for tour guide and Kimkim.com came up in google search and I thought I'd like to try the agency. It was a such a good decision. After I contacted Kimkim, Chio got back to me within a day and she helped to plan our trip. I had very specific requirements for the types of the trips... read more

Great Tour to Jordan · Jordan - Jan 16 - Jan 20, 2020
Tamara and the team at Why Jordan Tours were fabulous to deal with. Any questions I had were answered very quickly. The trip went off without a hitch. Zied our driver was great and took care of any needs we may have had along the way. Jordan is so beautiful and Petra is amazing. The arrangements at the airport were so simple it was by far the easiest entry into any of the countries visited. Tamara had all of our Visas prepared and she had a person meet us in the airport to move us... read more
Wonderful Experience · Peru - Jan 11 - Jan 19, 2020
From the first inception of the trip consulting with Anne to conversing with the great tour guides, especially Julio, the whole Peru experience was a wonderful experience for me and my family. Everything went off as planned: Lima, the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Cusco, and back to Lima. I highly recommend KimKim and Peruvian Soul if you are considering a trip for the great culinary scene in Lima or the wonder of Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley.

This was my first experience with KimKim and it resulted in one of the best trips I have ever taken. Our guide on the ground Nathantha was fantastic. He was very responsive and made sure that we were comfortable and safe at all times. All of the places he took us to were great. He understood what we wanted and did his best to make sure we got it. For example, we told him we were really interested in elephants and he hired an extraordinary man with a jeep that took us into the jungle and made... read more
Amazing one-week trip to Costa Rica! · Costa Rica - Jan 8 - Jan 15, 2020
Adrianna was amazing throughout planning our trip.

Golden Triangle India - 4 day tour · India - Jan 2 - Jan 6, 2020
KimKim was great to work with to organize this tour. Priya, our local specialist was very helpful. Because of the time difference, it usually took 1 day to respond. My planning of this trip was revised (by me) many times, and Priya managed all of the changes easily. All of our transportation, accommodations, and tours was seamless. The guides were knowledgable and helpful. I most appreciated our driver, Puran. He was with us from the moment we arrived in Delhi, until we departed Delhi. ... read more
Northern Morocco with guide Ismail: Tangier - Akchour Falls - Chefchaouen - Volubilis - Meknes - Fes - Rabat - Tangier · Morocco - Jan 15 - Jan 18, 2020
Megan put together a jam-packed 4-day itinerary for me as I wanted to fit in as much as possible in the short time I had available. Ismail collected me on day one in Tangier, and I initially had no idea how fortunate I was to have him as my driver and guide. Every day, multiple times a day, I was grateful for his company, his generosity, his knowledge and advice, and his driving. There is no way that I would have seen and experienced all that I did without Ismail at the wheel and by my side.... read more
Detailed review of our Colombia itinerary · Colombia - Dec 28 - Jan 11, 2020
Overall the trip was fantastic. There were a few things we probably would have done differently if we had more knowledge about the area. Here is our detailed review of the itinerary:
Day 1: Everything went well with the transportation from the airport to the hotel. The hotel was great. The only critique we have for the hotel is the lack of breakfast options. But the hotel was in a great location and we would stay there again.
Day 2: Awesome bike tour. We really liked our guide and... read more

The Mexican Eco company, Totonal, that Kim Kim uses in México is excellent. As a solo female traveller, I was very pleased with the custom itinerary planned for me by Sibila. All of my requests were fulfilled, from urban tours and decent, clean hotels in CDMX to horseback riding, hikes and cooking lessons in beautiful Guanajuato. All drivers and guides were professional , knowledgable and arrived on time. I was very reassured by Melina from Totonal, a warm and and very diligent... read more

Both Axel (who handled planning before we left) and Jesus (who helped with logistics and last minute changes once we arrived) from On The Go were fantastic - always super responsive, flexible and keen to make our trip absolutely perfect for us. Despite our regular flip-flopping in terms of requests!
Our trip to Argentina was absolutely fantastic - hotels, day-trips and logistics were all wonderful. Using Kimkim and On The Tour made everything very straightforward and we benefitted from... read more
No Hay Palabras! (There Are No Words!) (But I’ll Try Anyway) · Peru - Jan 2 - Jan 16, 2020
Let me start by explaining that I made this as difficult as I possibly could. Not intentionally, of course, it just happened that way. I started planning this trip in January of 2018, with intention of paying it off (they offer simple payment plans) by the end of the year, with departure the first week of January 2019. I set up an itinerary and began the payment process. Half way through the year, however, life happened, throwing a giant roadblock in my way. I had already been working with... read more

Loved our trip to Egypt · Egypt - Dec 22 - Jan 2, 2020
My family and I went to Egypt for around 10 days and visited Cairo, Aswan, Luxor and Hurghada.

Fantastic And well organised trip · Vietnam - Jan 1 - Jan 16, 2020
Alex was incredible to deal with. From our first contact on KimKim, she was always available and made a great effort to really understand what we wanted. The trip went exactly as planned. Absolutely no issues along the way. And when we did have an issue on our home bound flight which had absolutely nothing to do with her, she was there helping us with last minute accomodation.
Alex also made an effort to come and meet us while in Hanoi.
The accomodation was great all the way through, Of... read more

What a time! · Nepal - Dec 16 - Dec 16, 2019
To say this was a perfect experience is an understatement! Sangita and her husband, Bipin, provided my girlfriend and I with the dream excursion around Kathmandu. They made it so special, tailoring each step of the way to our wants, needs and desires. Trying authentic foods, exclusive sightseeing, meeting local friends and even directing us to the best (and fair) shops were all part of our journey - not to mention the stories, laughs and unique exchanges along the way. A hard 10/10! Thank you so much Sangita and Bipin! We're forever grateful for such an incredible adventure.
Super easy way to plan a great trip · Mexico - Dec 21 - Jan 2, 2020
Jorge and Melina did a great job and I was very happy with my trip. On very short notice during the high season, Jorge put together a perfect itinerary. I hate to plan and Jorge took all the work out of it. He put together a good balance of the big, can’t miss sites and activities that were a little more off the beaten track. Jorge helpfully worked with me to adjust the itinerary to meet my interests, and in hindsight, I only wish I had gotten more involved. Every tour they arranged was fun... read more
My experience of Kim Kim service to Brazil · Brazil - Jan 13 - Jan 16, 2020
I have been asked to write a review of my experience with Kim Kim and for me in particular Luciana who was my representative in Brazil.
This tour was something I do not do - when traveling I usually ensure family are available to look after me but I decided to take a risk.
Luciana poor dear was inundated with questions / concerns / reservations from the time I decided to make the booking. Her patience / professionalism and efficiency was first class throughout.
When I eventually arrived... read more
Not just a typical travel agency · Costa Rica - Dec 30 - Jan 8, 2020
We booked the whole CostaRica 10 days tour through KimKim. The people who helped us with planning and while we were on vacation were extremely helpful.

The activities were planned well, the travel from one destination to another was nicely arranged. We stayed at three hotels - Hotel Arenal Manoa, Senda Monteverde and Shana at Manuel Antonio.

Excellent local consultant · Bolivia - Jan 10 - Jan 15, 2020
Milenka was excellent to work with. She was very responsive to my many questions while planning the trip and was very flexible and helpful when we had to make a major change a few weeks before embarking on the trip. All of the guides, drivers and planned experiences were absolutely wonderful.
Jack was exceptional! · Myanmar - Jan 3 - Jan 14, 2020
Jack was exceptional. From the planning stages to the end of the trip, Jack was always willing to accommodate my numerous requests to customise the trip.
In addition to the standard plans, Jack helped me to plan the whole trip to meet my specific requirements. Even when some of the guides were not up to the expectations, Jack was quick to get involved and sort things out for me.
I would definitely recommend Jack for anyone visiting Myanmar!
Very pleased · Morocco - Dec 28 - Jan 15, 2020
We are so pleased we chose Kimkim to organise our Moroccan adventure. Our driver, our accommodation, our itinerary, our guides - everything was incredibly well executed and communicated. We saw tour buses everywhere and were so glad that our trip was customised and local. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Hakim and his team.

My family is a very active bunch and we love adventure and keeping busy. We certainly had all of this on our vacation. Randall listened to what we wanted, and was easy to contact regarding changes in plans and what we wanted to do. We spent the first half of our trip at La Fortuna and the second half in Manuel Antonio. Our accommodations at Manuel Antonio were fabulous, with outrageous views, helpful staff, spacious for our family of 6. I usually like to plan my own trips, but having Randall took a lot of the load off and it was nice having someone to help out when issues arose.
