I knew I want to work in travel industry since my high school years. I was born in Slovenia's capital and spend my youth dreaming about showing other people our lovely country and travelling the world. That's why in 2006 together with Mojca I opened my own travel agency. Since then we are working enthusiastically on preparing new itineraries and we are completely dedicated to our clients' needs. I love my job!
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"We do multi-country sightseeing tours, combined with different activities from culinary experiences to hiking tours."
How did you get involved in travel?
"Travel has always been my passion. I considered myself lucky that finally I was able to combine my passion and work and become a travel agent. It was pretty easy for me to decide about by studies, as I knew I wanted to work in tourism. I studied tourism planning and in 2006 I opened my own travel agency together with my colleague Mojca. We have been working hard so that we can now happily say that we are confident in our services and we look forward to planning new trips for our beloved clients."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"Truffle hunting in Slovenia with a local hunter and his dog. I really like that. It is such a great filling when dog finds the truffle and you can smell it fresh! And of course eat it later with pasta.
One of the thing that is also amazing and I will never forget it is winter skiing on the Morteratsch Glacier, Switzerland’s longest glacier run. Perfect activity for all advanced skiers."

How Many Days to Spend in Austria
With its pastoral landscapes, lively viticulture and gastronomy, and renowned art and music scene, Austria offers something for every traveler. A 10-day trip is ideal to fully experience Austria's top cities, from the country's capital, Vienna, to Innsbruck in the historic Tyrol region. In a week, you can still see much of the country by basing out of a major city and taking strategic day trips into the countryside. For a more condensed five-day getaway, focus on one or two regions to get the most out of your trip.

Recent trip reviews for Tomaz
Berlin, Munich and Neuschwanstein the last week of Dec 2022
Dec 26 - Jan 1, 2023
Zala and Tomaz planned an excellent, detailed itinerary with transportation, tours and lodging. Hotel Mio in Munich was the best. Located in the old city on a pedestrian shopping zone, rooms were quiet and one had a view of an old church clock tower. The rooms had espresso machines. Berlin's Hotel 38 rooms were very small and the bathrooms were tiny- similar to a train, but the breakfast was superior with plentiful offerings and fantastic staff. It would have been nice to have had... read more
Hi Liza, thank you for your kind review. We look forward to seeing you travel with us in the future.
Excellent, had a very merry Swiss Christmas!
Dec 20 - Dec 27, 2022
We had a really good time in Switzerland.
It was a wonderful experience!
Interlaken and Zermatt were absolutely memorable! We loved all the Christmas markets as well which was incorporated into the visit. Basel Christmas market was especially amazing!
Excellent communication and quick response from the local tour specialists, when we needed questions answered while in 🇨🇭
Very good sense of responsibility demonstrated by the local tour guide/team, which is much appreciated. We... read more

Oct 14 - Oct 18, 2022
Me and my husband are returning customers to Kimkim and we are glad that we trusted Kimkim again for our aniversary celebrations. Tomaz and team planned a perfect vacation for us in Switzerland. Tomaz paid attention to all our needs, interests and incorporated each and every detail into our trip. We were there in Switzerland for just 5 days and we managed to explore all the must see attractions in St Moritz, Zermatt, Interlaken and Luzern. This was only possible due to the excellent planning... read more

Oct 2 - Oct 13, 2022
This is my second trip booked through Kimkim (1st time was to Ecuador). It’s similarly been a great experience. It’s definitely the service to use if you have very specific itinerary and style of travel in mind that doesn’t fit into a prepackaged standard tourist format. As a very experienced traveler, this is essential for me. This time we wanted a very specific 2-week itinerary covering major and lesser known Jewish heritage sites throughout Vienna, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic,... read more
Hi Mark, thank you for your kind words. I hope to see you travelling with KimKim soon.
Perfect trip to the Czech Republic
Sep 13 - Sep 21, 2022
My husband and I had an amazing trip to the Czech Republic. The itinerary was perfect. We can not single out one place that was memorable. It was all so interesting , beautiful and welcoming. Each accommodation was unique and very special. We especially enjoyed our stay at the Aria Hotel in Prague. The staff was welcoming and very professional and the location was ideal. Henry the concierge, was particularly helpful and gracious. Lenka, our driver and guild (for our entire stay), was... read more
Hi Brenda, thank you. I look forward to seeing you on another trip with us. Kind regards, Tomaz
This was our first trip to Germany .
Sep 26 - Oct 1, 2022
This was our first trip to Germany . We used Tomaz help to plan a trip in Bavaria . We had three days planned and each day the plan was really well scheduled .
First day we met Karl . We loved Karl . This man is full of patience , is so good with kids and gave us so much information . We did not want to leave his side so as not to miss any information . He is so kind and helpful. A very honest person who did not push any of his ideas and gave frank reviews of hotels and restaurants . We... read more

Sep 8 - Sep 24, 2022
Tomaz worked tirelessly to organize our trip the way we wanted and Grand Cuvee Tours managed it. Given the complexity of the trip for 3 countries over more than 2 weeks there were a few snafus which were well managed by the GCT team, but in all everything went extremely well. Italy was awesome and some of the hotels we stayed at were fantastic. In particular, the guide we had at the Uffizi gallery was very helpful and knowledgeable and the lady who guided us around Salzburg easily adapted to... read more
Hi Marissa, thank you. I look forward to seeing you on another trip with us. Kind regards, Tomaz
Excellent Service from Kim Kim
Sep 8 - Sep 17, 2022
We were very pleased with the service we received from Tomasz and others. You arranged for hotels and guides that fit our requests, and we had a wonderful trip. One minor matter was that on our rental car return to Sixt in Munich, we were given the address of the office for Sizt and it should have been their rental return in a nearby (but hard to get to) location. The local manager made the problem go away for us. read more
Hi Robert, thank you. I look forward to seeing you on another trip with us. Kind regards, Tomaz
Switzerland in September
Sep 12 - Sep 19, 2022
Tomaz and Zala did a fantastic job planning our trip to Switzerland. Every detail was taken care of and everything worked out without any issues. The trip plan was exactly what we had in mind- great hikes, beautiful scenery, very great accommodations which were all very well located and clean, cozy and with great breakfasts! We would highly recommend Tomaz and Zala to anyone interested in exploring Switzerland. Thank you both!! read more

Fantastic Austrian vacation
Jul 14 - Jul 23, 2022
We had a fantastic trip. Everything was planned out perfectly and there were no problems at all with all the planned activities. Wolfy, our guide on the walking food tour of Vienna was outstanding and I would highly recommend both this tour and him as a guide.
Thank you to Tomaz and the team for all the planning. We thoroughly enjoyed the vacation.

Great Planning, Horrible Execution
KimKim was a wonderful service to use. However the Switzerland extension they used to execute the planned activities was poor and obviously over priced.
Won’t be using again.
Trip of a lifetime!
Jun 4 - Jun 15, 2022
Once booking with Tomaz and KimKim, my friend and I were given to a local company with Zala helping us. Overall, the trip and recommendations were amazing. Day by day feedback to follow.
We had great directions from Zala regarding transportation and luckily the train was easy to get the hang of. Our first hotel was Hotel Josef. Very cute hotel and close to the train as promised. What we didn't know however, was that there was no front desk at this hotel. Check in was a bit difficult,... read more
thank you for your comprehensive review. We did our best to stay within your budget, that's why some of the options for hotels and activities were replaced or taken out for you. That was all discussed in our initial planning phases. I look forward to welcome you in Europe once more. Kind regards, Tomaz
Best trip ever!
May 29 - Jun 9, 2022
From start to finish, KimKim was so attentive to our wishes and responded to all our inquiries in a prompt manner. We gave them
some of our ideas, and they filled in the days with places we did not know existed. We could not have been more pleased with their service. Their attention to the details of train schedules, passes, hotel reservations, etc took away a great deal of the stress of traveling in a foreign country with an unfamiliar language. They were also respectful of our budget. We would highly recommend this firm to anyone wanting to plan a stress-free getaway.
Hi Norma, thank you for your kind words. I hope to see you again travelling with us soon! Kind regards, Tomaz
Exceeded Our Expectations in Every Aspect
May 29 - Jun 1, 2022
Our three days and nights in Salzburg exceeded our expectations , which were quite high to begin with. Mitch, the guide who provided two days of tours (one for Salzburg and one to drive us to Hallstatt) was an excellent fit for our group of 8 persons. He knew Salzburg details but did not flood us with information, however, when we asked questions he could provide interesting details in response. Clearly, his 30 years of living in Salzburg and his highly developed social skills were key... read more
Hi Jack, thank you for such a nice feedback! I am happy that you liked the tour! See you soon back in Europe.
Kind regards, Tomaz

May 20 - May 30, 2022
Wonderful 9 day itinerary across Switzerland…mountains, lakes and valleys with city sites as well. Kimkim (Tomaz in particular) was very helpful laying out the initial plan, and the local company that worked the logistics was extremely detailed, accurate in all facets of the final plans with great maps and possible train connections. Overall couldn’t be happier with this experience.
Hi Garth, I am happy that you liked the tour so much! Switzerland is indeed fantastic country.

George arranged it all
Tom was great on the transfers and side trips
Tell any non German speakers to buy the translation. Booklet for the Passion Play
Available in many shops in Oberammergau
Made the play much better when we had them for the second half
Hi George, thank you so much for your review, we appreciate it and we hope to see you again travelling with us. Kind regards, Tomaz
An Amazing Autumn in Slovenia!
Oct 11 - Oct 18, 2021
Had a wonderful time in Slovenia's spectacular autumnal colours! A great way to get back into adventure travelling after having been unable to for so long. Local specialists Tomaz and Jala were both excellent in helping piecing together an excellent itinerary which included the places I wanted to see (Lake Bled, the Julian Alps etc) and the activities I wanted experience including hiking, paragliding and whitewater rafting. The Seven Lakes trek through the Julian Alps was both challenging and... read more

Aug 18 - Aug 22, 2021
This was our second time using Kimkim to help with our trip and as before everything was great. Maria, who provided the walking tour, was charming , informative and fun to spend the time with. The Wachau wine tour with Iolo was perfect. Wonderful wines, a special spot for lunch , all in all an enjoyable day. Both restaurant recommended were excellent. Zala responded immediately when we reached out with questions. We wished we were able to stay longer, but we will be back!
Thank you, Tomaz
Hi Inge, thank you for your review. I hope to see you travelling again with us!
