I believe that learning about cultures, traditions, and languages are among the most amazing things our world has to offer. I like trying out new cuisines, and meeting the local people all around the world.
Originally, I am from Hungary, but I have spent time working at hotels in the UK and also did my studies in Tourism and Leisure Management for 3 years in Austria. I've spent my internship on the island of Gozo, in Malta. After graduation, I imagined myself staying in Austria, but, long story short, I ended up in Ecuador and fell in love with this beautiful and amazingly diverse country.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"Both cultural programs and adventures throughout Ecuador. Day trips in and around Quito, local communities, indigenous markets, exploration of the jungle, adventures in the Andean Mountains, and the awesome Galápagos Islands. "
How did you get involved in travel?
"I always was curious about exploring the world and my passion for travelling grew with me as I graduated from high-school and left my country to start living an international life."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"One of the most amazing experiences I ever had was spending 3 days deep in the Amazonas Rainforest in Ecuador, where I met local communities, learned about flora and fauna being present in the area and tried local specialties."

Ecuador was an amazing trip in the midst of a pandemic...
Dec 31 - Jan 9, 2021
Ecuador was an amazing trip in the midst of a pandemic and an uncertain time within the world. It was a much needed vacation, and not one time did we feel unsafe or at risk due to covid. Extra precautions were taken, and everything went off without a hitch. From volcanoes, to hiking, to city experiences, Amazon adventures and more, there is nothing I would change about our trip.
"Fresh Eddie" our tour guide was one of the highlights for us! He graciously accepted our nickname given to him... read more
We had an amazing experience using Kimkim for...Ecuador
Jan 8 - Jan 19, 2020
We had an amazing experience using Kimkim for the first time.
Our booking agent Gabor was extremely helpful, responsive and had some great recommendations for us. When we had to change our travel arrangements due to disruption in the country he was able to accommodate our additional requirements as well.
Our first guide Roko was fantastic- from the moment he collected us at the airport until 8 days later when he dropped us off at Cuenca airport. Roko made every effort to ensure we had a... read more
I´m so happy to read your kind words :) I already expressed my gratefulness to Roko and had a small chat with Dario - he is going to pay attention to details and show his interest in making people really get to know with Ecuador in the future.
Again, thank you so much for your kind thoughts, and I hope to be able to help you out again in the future.
Take care both of you,
layers of outsourced operators with poor customer experience
Dec 20 - Jan 3, 2020
Was surprised that the whole tour right from kimkim is 100% outsourced to someone else with no accountability to customer experience. Found out the operator is a freelance for a tour operator to kimkim. All the time, whole tour operator was focused to fulfill his obligation with zero flexibility. Their non availability during weekends made it worse. Since this is my first tour experience thru kimkim and having always leveraged TripAdvisor and Viator, most of my trip could have been achieved... read more

Everything about the trip exceeded our expectations. Ecuador was a perfect destination for a week’s trip—so much to see, beautiful, charming old cities, spectacular and diverse landscapes, perfect weather. Safe, friendly, and you get a lot for your money.
Gabor was so kind and thorough in working with me to plan the trip. Every day of the trip brought new delights. The itinerary and the accommodations were all perfect. I was especially grateful that after 3 attempts to take the trip he... read more
I´m so happy to read your feedback and I´m especially glad that you had a wonderful time in Ecuador!
I will hand over your nice words to Fernando and everyone in our operations team who did their best for your trip to work out the way it did :)
I hope to hear from you soon whether you want to return to Ecuador and Galapagos or plan a trip to Peru or Bolivia.
Take care and all the best,
Trip to Galapagos Islands with Amy & Jeanne
Jun 28 - Jul 2, 2019
Bob and I truly enjoyed our time on the Yacht Anahi. The staff was warm and very helpful. Any request was immediately attended.
Our cabin was spacious and comfortable. We were surprised to find that it was bigger than the hotel room we had in Quito! We had all of the amenities and then some! Couldn’t have been happier.
Our guide, Gallo, was extremely knowledgeable, organized, efficient and funny 😄. He was informative on all aspects of the Galapagos - flora, fauna, birds, reptiles,... read more
Thank you for the feedback and the photos, they look amazing! :)
I´m happy that your overall feedback is positive, and please accept my apologies for the issue with the jacuzzi, I will contact the crew directly and talk to them about this, as well as suggest having snacks available throughout the whole cruise.
If you plan on returning to Ecuador or maybe travelling to Peru or Bolivia, please count with my help!

Trip to Galapagos Islands
Feb 16 - Feb 23, 2019
There were some slight variances from the descriptions but some were lacking while others were above and beyond expectations! Fernando was so great we felt as though we were leaving a friend after out short stay in Quito. Richard in Galápagos was very knowledgeable and clearly proud of all that he has learned. The day tours in Galápagos are not really as described although we enjoyed them thoroughly. I suggest contacting the excursion companies and request updated information.
When I look... read more
Thank you so much for your detailed feedback, I will definitely look into the trip description issue. I´m glad to hear that all in all you had a nice time on the enchanted islands :)
I wish you all the best and hope to hear from you soon!

Jan 4 - Jan 14, 2019
Our overall trip experience was great. Our guide (Fernando Fabre) was the best we have had in our many prior privately guided trips throughout the world. Our accommodations were good to excellent and met our expectations for the price we paid. Our local specialist Gabor provided us with excellent trip planning and coordination services; and we will definitely be using Kim Kim for our future world travels.
thank you very much for your kind words! It´s great to hear that your trip in Ecuador was a memorable one. If you ever consider returning or planning a trip to Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina or Colombia, feel free to contact me again, I will be happy to help!

Dec 24 - Jan 7, 2018
Great trip! Gabor was extremely communicative and receptive and helpful in planning the Honeymoon of our dreams. There was a portion of time when some other man, Rune, was helping us, and he was awful.
On our end, we should have asked more questions about how long each car ride was going to be - we are not really car people and should have anticipated that getting around would take a while.
Our guide, Dario, was fantastic. He always arrived on time. He knew the answers to most, if not all,... read more
Dear Aryeh and Ariela,
first of all, I'm happy to hear that the majority of your trip went well and that you are satisfied with the assistance I provided you.
I will definitely hand over your kind words to Dario and Yacuma Team!
As for Galapagos, I'm shocked to hear what happened with the guide. Since we have met about half an hour after this incident with the photos, maybe I could've done something about it if you had mentioned what happened, however I can assure you that we will not work... read more

Guide, transport and tours were excellent. Accommodation was not on good in couple of places.
Thank you so much for your feedback! I'm happy to hear that the tour itself went well. If you don't mind, I would like to discuss the topic on the hotel in our conversations, so that we can contact them and make sure that the unsatisfactory parts will not be present in the future.
I hope to be able to help you out in the future if you plan to return to Ecuador, or if you'd like to visit Peru, Bolivia or Chile.
All the best,

Amazing tour, so fantastic. Lucky with the weather too. The guide (Dario) showed us new things we were not aware of from our pre trip research too. Highly recommend Dario / Gabor.
Lots of communication - great.
Thanks so much for your feedback! I will also hand over your kind words to Dario. I hope to see some of the great photos you took on tour and of ’course, please count on me whenever you plan a trip to Ecuador, Bolivia, Chile or Peru!

This trip far outlived my expectations. It was amazing!
Gabor put together the perfect itinerary for me. I told him I had 2 weeks and wanted to see as much of Ecuador and Galápagos Islands as I could in that time. He made sure I did!
