I'm from Cordoba, Argentina. I had the opportunity to travel a lot through it and beyond. I really enjoy getting to know new places, like typical food, music and meeting people.
I love the southern region where I experienced the magnificence of the Perito Moreno Glacier and the natural beauty of Bariloche and Ushuaia with their numerous waterfalls, lakes, forests, and snowed mountains. As I’ve already been to the south I would love to truly immerse myself in the culture of the arid regions in the north and enjoy their local traditions and craftwork.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"We are destination specialists with insider knowledge of each country. We specialize in Argentina, Chile, Peru, Brazil, and Uruguay. We offer integration of travel services to provide a complete, consistent experience - particularly useful for multi-country itineraries featuring the main highlights of South America's most southern regions."
How did you get involved in travel?
"I've always been very interested in learning different languages, cultures, and most impressive natural resources and architectural patrimonies of the countries where those languages are spoken.
That led me to work on something related to learning and specialization in certain places, especially the landscapes that surround me, those of South America, and especially of my Country."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"When I was very young, we went on a cruise trip across Argentina and Brazil with my whole family. I observed the different tasks that could be done in the area of tourism. It was then when I had a great interest in working in tourism."

Chile; San Pedro de Atacama. Valparaiso & Santiago
Sep 17 - Sep 24, 2023
After 3 flightss to get to San Pedro de Atacama, it was great surprise to see the service and how helpful was the GM (Rosario Villagra) and her entire staff at Nataya Alto Atacama Hotel. All the excursions we picked were well planned and every guide was fenomenal, they considered my disabilities and supported me thruout the trip. The hotel beautiful location and facilities are above many. The hotel restaurant had a different menu for each meal daily and still provided enough selections for... read more

Chile and Bolivia
We had a great trip to Chile and Bolivia arranged by Emilce.
At all times her service was immaculate, and her advice was essential to the success of the holiday.
In Santiago we had a good experience with our tour guide Francisco.
Highlights were the Nayara Atacama and the great guides we had there, particularly Alexis who was a local musician who played in an Andean band.
The journey to the Bolivian border we had an excellent guide and Giovanni our Bolivian guide... read more

The trip was amazing ! Really enjoyed all the tour guides they were very knowledgeable and caring. We especially liked our tour guide in Easter island patricia she went above and beyond to make our experience amazing and smooth and gave us a lot of tips for restaurants and the place. In Atacama dessert it would have been nice to know ahead of time that the tour started at 4:30 am in the morning. We were notified at 5:30 pm the day before the tour that we had to be ready that early which was... read more
First time in South America
May 6 - May 20, 2023
This was our first time using a travel agent (also our first trip to South America). Emi provided us a great itinerary (including key activities and hotels) which was easy to work with, and within our budget range. Planning was easy and payment was easy also. We had a great experience with the teams in-region on WhatsApp (especially as neither of us have strong Spanish- this came in handy for a lost property question and also to confirm if the information from the local guide on arrangements... read more

Apr 24 - May 5, 2023
We had planned our trip before the COVID -19 happened. We were one week from our departure when the lockdowns were announced globally. Fast forward three years,we finally managed to visit the beautiful Argentina. The team during these three years was extremely cooperative.
Special call out to our local specialist,Emilce. She accomodated us at a very short notice. Her suggestions were excellent and the selection of the hotels was super. Everything was meticulously planned and we take back... read more

Apr 1 - Apr 16, 2023
I had an amazing experience travelling through the Argentinean and Chilean Patagonia and to Atacama. Despite having an activity packed vacation, everything worked smoothly. I am very satisfied with the service provided by Emilce and all the partners at KimKim. I will definitely used them again.
Argentine Adventure over 14 days
Mar 12 - Mar 25, 2023
We just returned from a 14 day whistle stop tour of Argentina and it really was amazing. During the planning stage, we found Emi incredibly patient and helpful. Reorganising the itinerary around 3 or 4 times fid not phase her at all - she was professional and insightful throughout.
The trio itself was planned and executed to perfection. The in-country team were all very efficient and the chosen excursions were really wonderful. Professional, informative, high quality and fun.

Mar 17 - Mar 26, 2023
Our entire trip was amazing. We loved every single activity and had a great experience overall. Emilce was very helpful throughout the whole planning process, especially when we had to delay our trip due to COVID. We plan to book all future international trips through KimKim. There is not a single experience on out trip that we did not enjoy or wouldn't do again. My only minor complaint is that I wish our itinerary was more detailed and included contact information for our drivers/guides or... read more
A fantistic trip after the first hotel glitch
Mar 12 - Mar 19, 2023
After problems with the reservations at the first hotel in Santiago, the rest of the trip went very smoothly and was a wonderful introduction to the country. Every guide and service provided was exactly on time, professional, engaging and fluent in English. It's hard to identfy one as better than another. I could not have been more pleased with the local service providers. When a glitch occurred because of the Valley of the Moon excusrion was rained out, the schedule was quickly rearranged to... read more

We are home, thank you so much for putting the trip together. We have had an amazing time, experienced so much and learnt so many things about the countries we visited. We could never have done it ourselves. All the trip went to plan apart from the interruptions in Peru which we managed with. It was great to see such good organising. We were collected and delivered on time to wherever we needed to be. La Paz was a great city to visit. The drive across the highlands of Bolivia was... read more

It was unforgettable trip.
Jan 31 - Feb 14, 2023
It was unforgettable trip. The service in every point was accurate, that means each pickup point we had ready driver waiting for us, which was even above expectation, compare to other countries we have traveled before. Good selection of the hotels and accommodations in every point we have chosen. Also the people in each town that provided service to us, drivers, guides, tour guides were cheerful and genuinely liking what they're doing, which reflected on us, as a clients. This may be because... read more

Emi was wonderful. We changed our itinerary so many times. We had to cancel one year and rebook the next. We started out with a completely different itinerary than we ended up with.

Incredible adventure across Argentina - best delayed honeymoon
Dec 28 - Jan 11, 2023
We had an amazing experience working with Emilce for our delayed-honeymoon trip to Argentina! Emilce was extremely responsive to our needs and questions, even when we asked her to rework the itinerary multiple times throughout the year. She was very knowledgable in the best activities and tours that matched our lifestyle, but also in finding the best value for the budget. She did an amazing job at the end with getting everything booked on a tight timetable.

Jan 5 - Jan 16, 2023
KimKim review: Emi was amazing and curated such a wonderful trip for us. Booking on KimKim was very convenient for us as we had very little time ourselves to plan a whole trip. The one aspect that caused some frustration was that Emi was only reachable by email effectively which makes the process very slow. I think even having one phone call to sort out small details and ask questions would have been much more efficient. In addition, factors outside of our control (big storms that take out... read more
