As an Argentinean with an unwavering passion for travel, I have always been captivated by the wonders of the world around me since childhood. Argentina, in particular, holds a special place in my heart, with its astounding diversity and incredible cuisine that never fails to impress.
Throughout my extensive travels across the country, I have had countless enchanting experiences, and it's safe to say that I have fallen in love with Argentina many times over. However, it is the northern region, especially Salta, that truly resonates with me and feels like my home away from home. Every moment spent in awe of the magnificent Hornocal has left an indelible mark on my soul.
Journeying through Argentina is a constant voyage of discovery, where every step brings forth new flavors, enticing aromas, historical landmarks, and breathtaking natural wonders. It is a land brimming with vibrant life, boasting a distinctive identity that is ever-evolving and never ceases to amaze.

How did you get involved in travel?
"My professional journey began as a sales manager in my hometown, where I quickly discovered my affinity for working closely with people. However, it wasn't until I arrived in Cordoba that I truly delved into the inner workings of travel agencies. It was during this time that I had an epiphany – I could merge my two passions: travel and fostering connections with others.
In Cordoba, I embarked on a voyage of self-discovery, immersing myself in the intricacies of the travel industry. Through this experience, I realized that I could effectively channel my love for travel into a career that allowed me to interact with people on a daily basis. The prospect of combining these two fundamental aspects of my life filled me with immense excitement and a deep sense of fulfillment.
Now, as I embark on this new chapter in my professional journey, I am grateful for the opportunity to pursue a career that allows me to intertwine my passion for travel with my innate ability to connect with others. I am excited to leverage my knowledge and expertise to create remarkable experiences for fellow travelers and help them uncover the wonders of the world."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"When I was approximately 10 years old, my father took me on a memorable motorcycle journey to the mountains. We spent several hours immersed in the picturesque landscapes, passing through charming villages and savoring a meal alongside the highway. As we navigated the winding roads, we had the opportunity to interact with local residents, engaging in heartfelt conversations that left a lasting impression on me.
Even now, as time has passed and my heart yearns for my father, I hold onto that cherished memory, forever grateful for the experience we shared. It serves as a reminder of the invaluable lesson he imparted: that every day presents a wonderful opportunity to cherish the company of those who bring us love and joy. Moreover, he instilled in me the belief that investing in travel is an investment in life itself.
With this profound understanding, I have come to recognize the profound impact that quality time spent with loved ones can have on our lives. I carry my father's wisdom close to my heart, as it continues to inspire me to create meaningful connections, explore new horizons, and make the most of every precious moment."

First thank you to Ana from Cordoba who made this trip for us. 👏👏👏
So many people to thank and names I might have missed. But I will start with my accommodations. Whether it’s a 5 star hotel or air bnb, I was given that served it purpose well for me. Aside from great hotels like Llao Llao in Bariloche, Alto Andino in Ushuaia and Senderos Hosteria in El Chalten are nice.

Ana was amazing in putting together our trip to Patagonia. She was prompt to respond and organized an amazing itinerary, exactly what I wanted. The guides were very knowledgeable, kind and responsive. I lost my phone, by contacting the urgent line I had it back by the next day. Will certainly book with them again for my next adventure read more
Aug 8 - Aug 30, 2023
We had a wonderful time in Argentine. Ana and her team put together an itinerary that ensured that we saw the best that the country had to offer. From vibrant cities to high altitude Andean towns and villages, from glaciers & icebergs to verdant rainforest and the unforgettable Iguazu Falls, we were constantly stunned and amazed by the share scale, grandeur and beauty of Argentine.
On top of this, we quickly discovered how helpful and tourist friendly the Argentinian people are. Add good... read more
Argentina- well done Kimkim
Jun 22 - Jul 2, 2023
Our trip ( my husband and myself) was a dream come through. I have absolutely no negative comments re the organization of our trip by Ana. Ana answered all our queries promptly before our trip . All the drivers and guides - Fabio, Andrea , In Buenos Aires,Daniel in Mendoza, Aljender in El Calafate and Manuel in Igwazu Falls were all professional and went out of their way to make sure that we were always comfortable and made the experience an unforgettable one. ( I have forgotten some... read more
EXCELLENT TRIP IN CHILE
Jun 18 - Jun 23, 2023
My client Karyn Anderson and her child Sebastian were delighted and have nothing but praise for all the arrangements made by Kimkim and Ana who was extremely helpful right through the booking process.
For starters, I would like to commend Ana for her selfless and prompt responses and excellent suggestions.
There were many changes but she handled the challenges with great expertise, otherwise for me, an unknown destination.
My client has written that everything went without a hitch,... read more
Not the guide's fault.
May 23 - May 26, 2023
My "guide" was a lovely man, very friendly and prompt. But he wasn't really a guide. I spent a day touring Pablo Neruda's homes because I thought I would learn more about the poet from him. Instead I went to each home and listened to a repetitive audio tour. Not what I thought I was paying more for. I do want to reiterate that this was not Orlando's fault, he was very kind and considerate every step of the way. But the planning by the agency was poor. read more

Trip to Patagonia and Iguazu Falls
Apr 14 - Apr 22, 2023
Our trip to Argentina exceeded our expectations and some. On the ground, the transfers were always early and ready for us, providing a seamless and on-time experience. We felt like each of the guides on the ground were knowledgeable about the given area that we were in and, most importantly, answered our one-off questions when we had them. We traveled to El Calafate, El Chalten, and Iguazu Falls and had a memorable time in each destination. In addition, each of the hotels we stayed had... read more
A beautiful trip to Argentina
Apr 5 - Apr 18, 2023
Argentina is indeed a beautiful country and our trip was made most memorable by the excellent service provided by our travel specialist Ana and her entire onsite team.
Clementina, the local specialist was extremely responsive and flexible to change the trip as needed.
Our guide in Buenos Aires, Andrea Zunino and driver Fabio were both extremely knowledgeable about the city, history, culture and a pleasure to be with, with the pleasant and friendly demeanor.
We had the same experience in... read more
Kim kim is great but you have to be careful about the travel agent you get
Mar 7 - Mar 17, 2023
Had an amazing trip overall and loved our itinerary to Chile and Patagonia. Overall, the coordination between cities was great and the transfers were perfect. The kim kim platform was wonderful and I really liked this service. However, I would not recommend using the agency or Ana, as she dropped the ball as our travel planner. Specifically, we met virtually to discuss the details of our hike in Patagonia… her lack of knowledge and insight into the W trek led to us staying in a small 4 foot... read more
Amazing trip overall to Chile! Would recommend entirely
Mar 18 - Apr 3, 2023
We had an amazing trip overall to Chile (Valparaiso, Santiago, Rapa Nui (Easter Island), Atacama desert and Patagonia). The trip was smooth, informative, had great guides overalls and very few hiccups.
The few elements I would propose to improve:
1. Our first night in Hotel Fundador was not good. We had a horribly tiny room that gave to the front of the hotel. We were on the 2nd floor and it was extremely noisy. I had never been in a hotel room that small. During our second stay at the... read more
Kimkim did a great job planning my "bucket list" trip across 5 South American countries!
Feb 20 - Apr 3, 2023
Overall, a very positive experience working with Kimkim organizing and executing my 6-weeks "bucket list" trip across Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, and Uruguay
Ana - the planning specialist - has done a great job designing the initial trip and then adjusting it based on my feedback - I think we went through ~15 iterations of the plan
If you plan on travelling across multiple countries - I would highly recommend Kimkim, as most (all?) local travel agencies only operate in their own... read more
Excellent and appropriately adventurous tour to Chile and Argentina
Mar 6 - Mar 22, 2023
Excellent and appropriately adventurous tour of Chilean alpine world, Patagonia (Torres del Paine, El Calafate, El Chaltan) and End of the World. Ana worked with two of us to identify great lodging and enriching experiences--all within our budget. Transport through two countries was seamless and all taxis were on time and well briefed. Also friendly and helpful in making adjustments to our schedule, booking internal flights, and suggesting places to eat and places to go at each locale. ... read more

Mar 9 - Mar 27, 2023
Oh my goodness-where do I begin? From start to finish, working with Ana and the Kimkim team when planning our trip to Patagonia and Easter Island was fantastic. She was so responsive(and trust me, I asked a lot of questions) and very sensitive to what I wanted. She even planned an ancestral ceremony to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary.
Ana suggested activites which were of our interest and then her team on the ground changed them to match our ability(my husband's hip was bothering... read more
Magical trip of a lifetime
Mar 13 - Mar 24, 2023
This was a trip that was so out of our comfort zone…. But the minute we started talking to Ana, we could relax! The trip that we came up with had everything we wanted and so much more we would not have known abt.
Once our trip started, we were contacted every step of the way. We did not have to worry abt anything…. We got picked up easily at the airport and our hotels were so great. Each of our guide were so knowledgeable, kind and so much fun. We had Fernando in Buenos Aires, Pedro in El... read more

Amazing trip to Argentina thanks to Ana and her team. Ana was great, paid attention to all our needs and organized everything so well: flights, hotels, tours, and rides. We were on a tight schedule and everything worked out really smoothly. All the tour guides, van drivers and contact people were very kind and helpful. We visited Calafate-Perito Moreno, Iguazu Falls and Buenos Aires with our three kids. We came back home with great memories. Thank you to the crew who made it possible.

Mar 4 - Mar 11, 2023
We had a glorious first time in Chile! This is a huge country, so we narrowed our trip to Santiago and Torres del Paine. And we saw Santiago, Valparaiso, Vin Del Mar, Colghagua Valley, Torres Del Paine National Park (two areas). From our time in Santiago, we learned about Chile’s history and economy. From our time in Torres del Paine and Patagonia, we saw great natural beauty. Everywhere we met lovely people and had a wonderful time. Our tour guides were fantastic - thank you Chris, Orlando,... read more

Our guide to Valparaiso was Orlando. He too was awesome. He had been our driver on a lot of shuttles prior as well.
