Traveling is one of the first things that comes up to my mind when I started studying tourism, but later on, that´s not enough. After a few years, I understood that I could find real pleasure in helping other people to live their own unforgettable experiences , what became my main purpose by combining both efficiency and effectiveness in my work.
Born and raised in Buenos Aires, I have been traveling all around my country since a very young age, visiting all the unexplored places you can imagine for over 10 years. From the most southern point in the continent, to the warmest and most awesome landscapes in the north. When you travel, you open your mind by experiencing new tastes, cultures, and passions.
Every person in the world has a main goal in their life, and if you are here with us, it means that traveling, is one of them. My goal is to make your dreams come true.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"I specialize in organizing multidestination trips in Argentina and its neighboring countries, either connecting by air or land. I recommend domestic/regional flights for long distances and buses for the shortest ones. There are no good trains unfortunately in South America. I also like to suggest some self-driving programs in certain locations, such as in the northwest of Argentina, the lakes area in Argentina & Chile, among others.
As I´ve traveled a lot around South America, depending on your traveling profile, I can recommend you the right activities to include in your trip, by suggesting for example soft adventure tours for the more active travelers or small groups sightseeing options for the ones who prefer short walks.
I always try to have a quick chat on the phone at the beginning, in order to get your real expectations about your trip, and then design a first proposal in which we can work together until we get to the final trip that matches both your desires and budget!"
How did you get involved in travel?
"Since a very young age, I was really curious about visiting every single corner of Argentina and its neighboring countries, in order to increase my knowledge about South America. I was really sure that tourism was my passion and it became my way of life."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"Everything started whith one of my first trips to Bariloche, Argentina. Until that moment, I had already been in several citys of Argentina but, particulary Bariloche, has something that made me fell in love. Lakes, Mountains, green forests, snow, blue skies and hot chocolate. Everything you need to feel at home. Starting with the ski, my passion for this city seems that will never reach the top. "

Going Off The Beaten Path in Argentina
Jun 27 - Jul 3, 2019
Martin at KimKim, for the last year, has been dealing with your July Eclipse trip to Argentina 2019. He was always helpful with his replies and bookings we needed to change, I even got to call him once which was great to hear someone's voice, not just typing, sometimes you just need to chat to make sure we understand each other.
This was our first time using KimKim and not the last! Argentina was a wonderful experience and we'll be back!
Thank you again for making this one of the most memorable trips!

The Best of Northern Argentina - 14 Days
Jun 14 - Jun 29, 2019
Thanks again for this wonderful trip! Back home, we wish w're back there.
We had issues, but you were there, to get everything right.
Day by day we will review the trip.
Day 1: we had to call you for the car. The changed flight schedule was not known by the car rental company.
For one night it's better to stay in a different hotel or hosteria, because we had the feeling that this was a one-person room.
Day 2: beautiful stay
Day 3: we visited La Garganta del Diablo and the... read more

Good price, very good destinations, good internal flight arrangements, except one bad experience good airport pickups and transfers. Excellent arrangements and quality of lunches and dinners. Responses from Carla were very prompt, and Martin’s were generally good.
Failure of my transport at Rio was very disturbing and that was a bad start.
While the hotels were all four star rated, Dione of them were below our expectations and well below what we had... read more

The first stop in Brazil was not good as the hotel was below par. It was very disappointing to see the hotel lobby.
Best of Patagonia - 9 Days
Nov 17 - Dec 2, 2018
We had a great time booking with Kimkim, and will definitely use them again. We would also recommend them to others, and in particular others doing the trip we did.
We had some really great calls with our specialist Martin, who did an amazing job, and helped us plan the trip that we wanted. I was very particular about our accommodation, but Martin listened to what I wanted and (patiently) found the perfect options. He also helped us maximise our time in Patagonia e.g by thinking outside the... read more
Trip to Argentina
Dec 28 - Jan 9, 2019
Overall it was a fantastic trip.
I take at least 2 and sometimes 3 vacations a year and I am very particular. I had been using a particular agency for many adventures and decided to give Kim Kim a try.
I will give a concise but honest evaluation if you permit and at the end some suggestions that may help Kim Kim and future travelers.
Day 1, All day walking tour A , that night was the Argentine Experience A+.
Day 2, Navigation to Tigre C
Although interesting, I found it to be a long boat ride... read more

Pros: Smooth booking process, quick turnaround to our requests, professional dialogue and we got compensation (other services) or refund for all travel inconveniences. The services we did benefit from (tours, accommodation) were of good quality.
Cons: one day tour was not what we asked to book, and one day tour was cancelled due to transportation issues at one of kimkim’s partner.
Martin was very cooperative, communixative, reaponsive and went above and beyond to solve the issues in such a manner that he managed to minimise our travel discomfort.

We had issues, but Martin was good in getting the situation back on track.
Oct 19 - Oct 21, 2018
Martin was easily contactable and helpful in providing tours, and selected some perfect tours for us in the end. However it was hard to determine the exact day itineraries to see what was involved. It would have been useful to have been sent final overviews to what each day covered and what was included with more information than was provided. This lead to a bit of confusion on arrival as there was a misunderstanding of the plan for the day and being dropped at the hotel for lunch when we... read more

We were on a trip to Patagonia and toured around Argentina and undertook a number of experiences. All of these were incredible and while there were some things that slightly detracted from the experience we were very pleased overall with the experience.
We happened to arrive at a time when a strike was scheduled which meant one of our days had to be moved around. This meant we stayed a day longer in El Calafate and had to find something to entertain us whilst we were there, which we managed... read more
