The combination of the two places where I grew up (Madrid and a small village in Badajoz, Extremadura) has made me a passionate traveler almost from birth. Unknown destinations visited by travelers who ran away from clichés and unusual places have always caught my attention, and from my point of view, these are the places that best allow you to get to know a culture and its traditions.
I firmly believe that each of the trips we make changes our life (even just a little), and that is why I rely on experiences when I have to choose a new destination and the activities to enjoy there. I had the opportunity to spend a couple of weeks in a favela in Cape Town and listening to the real stories of the people living there absolutely changed my mind. Since I started traveling (through most of Europe and several destinations in Africa), I have felt the need to share these amazing and very diverse experiences with all the people who allow me to do it and create in them a memory for a lifetime.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"Custom-made itineraries and unique trips based in local experiences and the culture of Spain, Portugal and Morocco."
How did you get involved in travel?
"As I had to travel a lot between Madrid and Badajoz as a child, I started to get curious about all the places I passed by. That curiosity grew and over the time I began to take trips that allowed me to know different destinations and cultures. I decided to guide my career in the world of tourism, and for 5 years I have turned my passion into my job, organizing trips that create memories in the lives of others."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"It’s really difficult for me to choose just one experience, but as we are talking about unique experiences probably I have to talk about the first time I lived a Flamenco show at a private and really small Sacromonte Cave, in Granada. Flamenco has always been special for me and could sound like “a cliché” in our country, but to watch a live show in such a magical and familiar place was absolutely memorable. "

Aug 30 - Sep 13, 2023
This was our most amazing trip yet. Beatriz of Espiritu Travel was with us every step of the way. She sent the most amazing app we've ever seen and updated it as the trip went on. Everything was on there--our guides' phone numbers, when they would pick us up, what restaurants to go to, everything. She also found things for us to do which we would never have found on our own. For instance, we had seen a large quinta in Bon Appetit which we really wanted to visit for lunch. We asked our... read more

Beatriz was great! She helped us plan trip to Barcelona and Mallorca. She gave us great options for tours to choose from, things we wouldn’t have though about. Our favorite one was tapas tasting walking tour - so fun, and our guide was amazing, we learned so much about food and traditions and got to taste a lot of tapas and drinks too. I highly recommend this tour and thankful to Bea for suggesting it. Another great suggestion was a tour of Montserrat - it was out of the busy city and very... read more

Beatriz did an outstanding job in planning our trip. Her suggestions for various activities including planning many cultural experiences were exactly what we wanted. She was very responsive and met our needs on budget and what we wanted to see and do on our trip. All the day tours were small group and very personalized. The app is very effective and the train tickets, plane tickets etc. provided was very convenient. The guides were excellent - very authentic and knowledgeable and truly... read more

Jun 30 - Jul 15, 2023
The hotels and the activities provided were excellent. Maybe because of our age but I thought the trip had too many activities planned without enough time between. There was no way we could have made the trip from Vigo to the boat trip on the River Sal.
I thought San Sebastián was a Zoo and very hard to drive. I would skip that City and use the time for a more leisurely drive through the rest of the trip.
Everyone is different but apart from the above comments everything else was great. No... read more
So glad we did this!
Jun 16 - Jun 27, 2023
A mere two decades after my wife told me on our first date that she always wanted to go to Spain, we decided to make it happen for her birthday - with our daughters in tow. For the first time, we sought help arranging an itinerary and found Kimkim online. We saw that Beatriz, a travel consultant in Spain, had off-the-charts customer reviews.
They didn't do her justice.
We contacted Bea initially just to explore options. We told her our interests, intent, and party make up. Bea... read more

Jun 13 - Jun 23, 2023
What a fantastic experience from start to finish! Bea planned a perfectly paced trip for our family of three and was incredibly responsive to questions, suggested itinerary changes etc. We got to experience so much while still having plenty of down time to wander.
The guides she arranged were excellent- friendly and so knowledgeable. Tiago provided an unforgettable day in Sintra and Emanuel was the perfect guide for the national park.
Bea (and when she was away her colleague Helena) were... read more

This was such an amazing trip!
We really enjoyed the hotels in both Lisbon and Evora. The staff in each were friendly and accommodating.
Every tour guide was incredible. They were all willing to share about themselves and their culture, making each one truly special.
We had Gisella for the walking tour. We really connected with her, and she showed us a TON of Lisbon. She gave us tips and ideas for food and drink that we used during our free time. She was friendly, and easy to... read more

My husband and I could never have planned this vacation without KimKim-specifically Beatriz De Pablo from Espiritu Travel. At the outset, I tried organizing the trip myself utilizing online services but I instinctively knew professional help was needed to maximize this travel experience.
Our 16-day trip began in Barcelona with travel to Girona, Tarragona ending in Madrid. KimKim arranged all of our train tickets, hotel stays, and tours and provided background support via the Trip Plans... read more

Amazing honeymoon experience in Portugal!
Apr 18 - Apr 27, 2023
Our honeymoon trip to Portugal was absolutely amazing! I'm an event/travel planner in my day job, so I know I could've planned the trip on my own, but working with Kimkim and our specialist Beatriz made the planning experience SO much quicker and I appreciate all the time they saved me! I loved how we were able to customize our itinerary, ask specific questions, and tailor the whole experience to our interests + Beatriz was super responsive during our travels in case we had questions or last... read more

Trip was well organized. Transit from Lisbon to Carvoeiro via coast & Sagres was good. Carvoeira hotel & location was great. Caves boat tour was spectacular . Monchique/Foia was not very interesting. Day trip to Silves & Lagos was great. Same local guide for most of the local tours - good guide & flexibility (e.g, changed Tavira walking tour to trip to Castro Marim & across border to Spain to Ayamonte). Rio Fomosa boat tour - would have done the shorter excursion option . The only issue was... read more

Pascu Robredo gastronomic tour in Balboa was excellent
Gastronomy tour in Oviedo was not what we expected. Noella was a lovely guide and taught us so much about the city. She gave us a history tour, not a food tour we were expecting.
She walked us around the city for two hours and showed us pictures of food on her before she took us to eat.
This would have been wonderful if we had not expected a food tour. read more

Teresa in Sevilla was very congenial and informative. we enjoyed her company and insights on our tour . unfortunately i have lost the name of the lady who took us to the flamenco show but she was delighful and showed great enthusiasm for the dance and explained some of the intricacies of the dance. Our tour of Cadiz was also exemplary and Adriana did a great and energetic presentation of the sights. i would say, in... read more
