I enjoy slow travel, ideally being in one country for a month where I can really get to know the local people, their way of life and of course their food! I am Peruvian-American and have traveled through many of the beautiful countries LATAM has to offer.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"I specialize in all things South America! You can count on me to recommend the best cafés and restaurants in town specially in Lima, the gastronomical capital of Latin America. "
How did you get involved in travel?
"Back in 2011 I joined a study abroad culinary program in Peru. Here, my curiosity began to burst. Not only did I want to travel everywhere In Peru but I wanted to learn about different cultures and different food and techniques the world has to offer. Now no matter where I travel, making a stop at a local market is at the top of my list! "
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"In 2012 I went to Iquitos with a couple of German friends, we camped out in an indigenous community in the middle of the Amazon, it was not at all glamorous, but one of the most memorable trips. I got to learn so much about how the community lived, their culture, their food, and their reality. It was both eye-opening and life-changing. "

Sep 3 - Sep 17, 2023
Our trip to Peru was amazing and unforgettable! Firstly, a huge applause for Johanna Fabian, our Trip Planner. She was with me beginning to end. She helped plan our trip in detail and customised it in every way that I wanted. She responded promptly to all my mails and queries, and it is because of her attitude, experience and promptness, that I felt confident in proceeding with Kimkim! Even after we landed in Lima, she was following up with me about the trip! A very big thank you to... read more

We really enjoyed our time and sad that it had to end. We were taken great care of especially in Cusco where we spent most of our time. We had safe drivers mostly by Sr. Carlos and our superhuman tour guide Sr. Valerio who was very knowledgeable and patient with our slow pacing trying to get acclimated while hiking and trekking. They were accommodating of our time because we wanted to start early and they were punctual. Not a second was wasted. We are very appreciative of the entire team!

Bolivian Dream Vacation:
Johanna helped create for us a detailed and individualized vacation that suited our interests and time constraints during our April visit to Bolivia. She was easy to communicate with and tried very hard to include as many of our wishes as was feasible. This was not an easy task, since we wanted to see everything but only had a week to devote to our travels. Johanna and Kristy were both available to us during our trip through WhatsApp for any last minute questions or... read more

We had a fantastic trip to Peru, a family of four with kids aged 10 and 13. Our trip went so smoothly, can't say enough in gratitude for the support we received from Johanna and her team. They efficiently helped us manage a passport mishap on day 2 of our trip! We truly enjoyed two weeks - dune bugging and sand surfing in the dessert, a trip to the Ballista islands with tons of wildlife, into the Amazon for three amazing days, followed by a week in the Cusco, the Sacred Valley and Manchu... read more

"I had the pleasure of working with Johanna and Kristy to plan our group’s recent trip and I cannot recommend their services highly enough! From start to finish, my experience with Johanna and Kristy was exceptional. Their dedication and hard work truly demonstrated when we had to change our destination location in an unexpected turn of events. It is no small feat to rebook flights, hotels, tours, restaurants, and activities to a group of 68 people!!!

Chile was a fantastic country to visit. The diversity starting with the lagoons in the high regions of the Atacama desert, to the Glacier regions and mountain vistas in Patagonia and the happening city of Santiago left us spellbound. Our guides, Johanna and Kristy were amazing, patient and super helpful through out the planning and the trip.
This is a must go to! Trip was amazing!

The guides were wonderful, the people were great, the food was amazing and the mountains and culture already have me want to go back. In hindsight, I would've stayed another week to ten days and done the rainforest, and rainbow mountain.

We had a wonderful trip to Peru. The booking process and working with Johanna on the trip plan was enjoyable and she provided the best suggestions. We had some delays due to the airport incident and Johanna was even more amazing to work with during the rebooking/cancellation process. She was always available and willing to help. Our trip would not have been a success if it wasn't for her and Kristy who went out of their way to accommodate our changing plans. A big thanks to Johanna and... read more

Nov 9 - Nov 17, 2022
This was our first trip using KimKim planning for our 10th anniversary in Peru including Lima, Cusco and Machu Picchu.
To our pleasant surprise, it turned out that all excursions were private, and therefore we were always in the safe hands of all the friendly, very knowledgeable team members Amy, Edwin, Richard, Flor and all the excellent drivers who made our trip wonderful, enjoyable and unique.
We would never have figured out how to plan this trip on our own. Joanna, our agent, has... read more
Amazon & Cusco Adventure
Nov 1 - Nov 9, 2022
My husband and I booked our whole trip with KimKim and had an amazing time. We spent 4 days in the Amazon of Puerto Maldonado and 5 days in the Cusco and Sacred Valley area of Peru. Our travel was fairly smooth. There was one point when our flight was changed but Johanna helped us and made sure the Hotel would still be able to pick us up to bring us to the lodge in the Amazon jungle that night. It was so amazing to have everything already worked out, and we never had to wait for rides or our... read more
