Previously, we built some of the world's leading travel apps, including TripAdvisor, EveryTrail and TrekkingPartners.

We're excited to now launch kimkim, a better way to plan and book travel through the help of a local expert.

For many of us, travel planning has become a painful experience; we spend countless hours researching online and are left with too many choices.

Instead, imagine talking with a local travel expert, someone who knows the destination well and can offer curated travel advice. A person who loves recommending great experiences based on your personal interests. And what if they could put the entire trip together to easily review and book in one place?

We believe this is the future of travel — bringing the local expert back into the trip planning process equipped with the tools to put together a truly amazing trip.

We're excited to be part of your travel experience, whether it's a once-in-a-lifetime adventure or a short holiday with your family.

Feel free to reach out to us with your feedback, ideas, and travel aspirations!
