My Background

After years of trip planning for family and friends, it seemed only natural for Kim to turn her passion into her profession. Family summers spent driving cross-country and traveling to her ancestral homeland of Scotland fueled this passion at an early age. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Delaware, Kim spent the next 10 years in corporate America while traveling as often as she could. She has four wheeled in the sand dunes of the Baja Peninsula, ridden horseback in the African bush, driven 125 mph on the Autobahn and swam with wild spinner dolphins in the Pacific Ocean. As the mother of two young girls, Kim understands the challenges of traveling with small children and makes sure that her clients' travel plans accommodate even the littlest of travelers. She believes that sharing the world is one of the greatest gifts we can give our children. Her specialties include custom family travel, luxury honeymoons, tailor-made safaris & bespoke golf experiences.

Wow what a great trip!

We had Kim line up all of our international airfare, connections, etc. for a wonderful trip to South Africa. We did a week of safari and then a few nights in Cape Town. Everything Kim set up was well organized and service was very friendly and professional. All the travel was well organized and thought through. It really made for a wonderful experience. This was the trip of a lifetime thanks so much Kim!!!

Responsive, friendly, professional service

By: Candace

I can't say enough good things about my travel experiences with Kim. She has planned at least five trips for my family over the years. Kim is extremely responsive, friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Our most recent trip was to the Half Moon resort in Jamaica. The travel to our destination was flawless, thanks to Kim. We took her recommendation and booked Club Mobay for our arrival and departure. I'm so glad we did! We breezed through customs and met our driver with ease. Upon arrival at Half Moon, we were warmly welcomed and shown to our beautiful villa. Kim made sure our villa had an ocean view. It was breathtaking! We enjoyed a wonderful week of rest, relaxation and amazing service. Our children had plenty of activities to choose from and we created some wonderful family memories. It was truly a dream vacation and just what we wanted. Kim has consistently surpassed our vacation expectations. I wouldn't dream of planning a trip without her!

Perfect selection of resort!

Kim has helped me plan many different trips. They have all been different: honeymoon, girls get-away, and this time a meditation and hiking-focused retreat for my friend and I. Kim found us a beautiful property that was loaded with activities - all related to exactly how we wanted to spend our time. She connected us with tour guides that were the most amazing! I love working with Kim because when the hotel staff knows that you are a Virtuoso client I firmly believe that you get 110% service (versus the 100% they give to all hotel guests!!!!).... they just go out of their way EVEN more to check on you. Thank you Kim. I love referring you to family and friends... I think you have helped at least a half-dozen of my friends plan their honeymoon. And I know they have all enjoyed it! I look forward to working with you on my upcoming Safari trip to South Africa in 2016!

Our trip to Bermuda was perfect in every way thanks to Kim and her eye for detail. She worked with the hotel to find the perfect room. She made sure our driver around the island was professional and friendly. Our dinner at Ascots was lovely and even included a wonderful surprise birthday platter. All in all it was a 10 out of 10. Thanks Kim!

Our Trip to France and Iceland

By: Greg

Reviewed on: 21 Sep 2016

Kim was amazing. Given that this was our first family trip to Europe, you can imagine we had many questions. There were 4 of us, each with different interests, goals, and things we definitely wanted to do. Kim very patiently navigated that minefield and put together an itinerary that met all those needs. She gave us a great combination of elegance, functionality, and uniqueness. Kim is very knowledgeable and everything she recommended turned out amazing. When we suggested things to do or see, she would often guide us away from things that would not have met our needs or would have been a disappointment. I cannot think of one thing we experienced that I would not do again. If you want someone who is a partner or consultant and not merely a reservation person then Kim is your person. She leverages her vast experience and great taste to mold memorable vacations.

Our tour of Monaco and Eze was fantastic! Every detail was perfectly handled, it exceeded our expectations. Our tour guide grew up in the area and was very knowledgeable of every aspect and spoke great English. He was very friendly and we enjoyed our day spent with him. We would highly recommend this tour to others!

As always, it was a delight to work with Kim Heflin. Our trip to Tortuga Bay was absolute perfection. Our resort was gorgeous and the views from our ocean front villa were spectacular. The staff was exceptional, as well. It was Kim's suggestion to consider this resort. I was looking at another property in the Dominican Republic and I am so glad that Kim suggested Tortuga Bay. It offered the perfect balance of relaxation and activities. Kim understood exactly what we wanted! Every aspect of planning the trip and the vacation itself was sheer perfection. Thanks again, Kim, for another fabulous getaway!

Group trip to Italy

By: Elizabeth

Reviewed on: 10 Jul 2017

Working with Kim was a pleasure! She arranged a trip for a group of eleven of us to visit Italy. We stayed in three hotels in three cities during our ten day vacation. Everything flowed seamlessly! The properties worked well for our needs and the tours, tour guides, and drivers were exceptional. We didn't have to worry about a thing except enjoying ourselves. I especially liked Kim's personal touch of suggestions for packing. She went above and beyond to communicate with all members of our traveling party. We absolutely could not have made this trip without her!
