Francesca organised a fabulous trip to the Faroe Islands!
the Faroe Islands
May 8 - May 15, 2023
Francesca organised a fabulous trip to the Faroe Islands for us. Contact and payment in lead up to the trip was simple and quick. We were a little unlucky with weather on the trip, which unfortunately resulted in morning ferry cancellations to Mykines (we tried three days in a row!) but we appreciated Francesca and her colleague's support to keep re-booking the ferry so we could keep trying. Anytime we had little hiccups we received prompt assistance from KimKim. Highlight of the trip was a... read more
Most amazing trip ever!
the Faroe Islands
Aug 19 - Aug 24, 2021
I was expecting the trip to be amazing, but it was an absolutely incredible experience and blew my expectations out of the water. From the moment I started planning, to the day we left, working with KimKim, Tummas, David, and Eydun couldn't have been better. Everyone was so helpful, the day trips were so beautiful and the schedule was flexible. The hotel was great, transportation right on time and easy, and the destinations we went to I will never forget. Best trip ever and I can't wait to come back!!
Tummus and the Faroe Islands - a fantastic guide and incredible nature
the Faroe Islands
Jul 3 - Jul 11, 2021
One of the best trips I've been on! Our guide, Tummas, was pure joy. Enthusiastic, knowledgeable, prepared and fun. Because the weather is unpredictable, he always had a plan "B" which for us was as good as "Plan A". Lunches were delicious and fresh. The daily trips were well planned and we loved being able to experience some the of hidden gems and experience some of the local, off the beaten track cafes and restaurants. I will remember this trip always and will never forget the kindness and generosity of the people of the Faroe Islands and Tummas. A must holiday.
