Mery Morelli

My name is Mery and I define myself as a traveling soul. I really love this beautiful country which has to offer so many highlights such as the North with its Andean culture and colorful mountains; the Northeast with its amazing Iguazu Falls; the South “La Patagonia”, with the snowed mountains, glaciers and landscapes, perfect for trekking lovers and of course its capital, Buenos Aires, a multicultural and eclectic city.
I will be glad to assist you in everything you need to know about Argentina and surroundings, to make your trip a full experience!

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I like to recommend the active tourism, there are different options with different difficulty, it does not means that active has to be hard. I mean that I recommend the philosophy of "out of the beaten track" and explore every destination in-depth."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I started to study tourism as the majority people of the career, to be the best traveller, know about destinations and work travelling. After that I was in love of the possibility to help other people with their trips! As an expert in tourism I feel that is an honor to help to people to get the best experience in their trips!"

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I love trekking! I have 2 favourite trips! One in Spain, making the St James way, walking during one month and meeting people from all around the world; and other very close, here in Argentina, in El Chaltén. El Chaltén, is the trekking capital in Argentina, and there are so many paths to make that you can enojoy every day that you spend in that places located between montains."

Trip to argentina, Argentina - Sep 1 - Sep 6, 2019

Traveler: Edlyn G. - Local specialist: Mery Morelli

Considering how packed our schedule was for this trip, things ran smoothly. Service by Marcela in Buenos Aires was amazing. Thank goodness for her because we didn't know about the weight limits in our carry on to fly to El Calafate. Tour around Buenos Aires with Nicolas was fun. It was nice that we were the first to get picked up so we could talk about other things that interested us about Argentina

There was a small hiccup when we got to El Calafate and nobody was there to pick us up. It seems like someone missed our reservation entirely since our hotel was also closed for business when we got there. Luckily, another hotel owned by the same company was available for us.
Tours and service after that was great. Noelia was with us during our tour to Perito Moreno. We loved she had lots of information about the area for us.
Private Service from Puerto Natales was a bit scary sometimes. A three hour long trip was done in two hours and 15 minutes. We were going FAST!
When we got to Santiago, the driver was not waiting where we were told. He didn't know he had to wait for us there. All got sorted after I called.
Hotel in Santiago was super convenient. Perfect way to finish; close to parks and restaurants.
We liked that we had a combination of full service hotels to smaller boutique ones. We liked that for the most part things were confirmed for us by Say Hueque before we had to do so.
Thank you Mery for helping us plan this amazing trip!

Trip to argentina, Argentina - Jun 30 - Jul 5, 2019

Traveler: Darla M. - Local specialist: Mery Morelli

The entire kimkim team was fantastic! We had several flight delays and changes and could not have been more impressed by the support provided by Mery, our drivers and our tour guides to quickly and seamlessly resolve any issues with the airlines. Knowing we had a team behind us we could depend on was an added bonus.

Our guide, Manuel, in Iguazu was terrific!

I cannot recommend kimkim enough and will reach out to the group first as we begin planning or next journey.

Norte grande/norte chico trip, Chile - Jun 9 - Jun 27, 2019

Chile is an outstanding travel experience. I have traveled extensively in the world and I believe the country of Chile is one of the best. The scenery is stunning and the people are warm and friendly. My wife and I returned from a three week trip yesterday and are basking in the afterglow.

Chile is an outstanding travel experience. I have traveled extensively in the world and I believe the country of Chile is one of the best. The scenery is stunning and the people are warm and friendly. My wife and I returned from a three week trip yesterday and are basking in the afterglow.
Our guide and driver in the Santiago and the Elqui valley areas were Alejandro and Luis. There can be no better guide than Alejandro with Senderos Nativos and no better driver than Luis.
Alejandro is a personable individual whom I immediately felt comfortable with on an interpersonal level. I feel privileged to be shown the country of Chile by a person of his stature. He is brilliant in his knowledge of all aspects of Chilean culture, history, flora, fauna, and landscape etc. Luis is likewise easy to get to know and is extremely efficient and dependable. He has raised the level of driving to an art and I never once felt uncomfortable with him behind the wheel.
Travel to the Atacama area is a must. It is a travel experience that is singularly unique and powerful.
Our guide and driver in this area was Javier with Huellas del Desierto. Like the two individuals just mentioned, he is easy to communicate with and is completely knowledgeable of the Atacama area. He went above and beyond to make our experience in San Pedro both fun and informative. He is a professional in every sense of the word.
Our guide in Valparaiso was April who was perfect in every sense. Valparaiso is another must visit travel destination. April brought the city alive in a manner that would have been impossible without her.
Mery ( primarily) and Daiana (backup) worked hard to make our travel experience happen the way I wanted. Mery was critical to the success of the trip and she came through perfectly. Daiana also provided assistance at critical moments. Everything that was arranged happened as planned and occurred like clockwork. I have friends and family considering a trip to Chile and Argentina and I would not hesitate to recommend either one of them for travel assistance.
All of these individuals are complete professionals and are excellent at their respective skills. I have never written a review before but I can honestly say if you are planning a trip to Chile and/or Argentina, you can have complete trust and confidence in them to provide an unforgettable first rate travel experience.

Torres del paine, Chile - Apr 15 - Apr 19, 2019

The first two nights of the trip were terrible. Our original campsites were indiscriminately closed without warning. As a result all the campers were forced to use the facilities of much smaller refugios, which were inadequate for the number of people. We were herded in and out of the eating areas like cattle, with strict time limits for consuming our meals.

We were herded in and out of the eating areas like cattle, with strict time limits for consuming our meals.

Furthermore, I was dramatically overcharged compared to other people in my group who booked directly with the tour operator, Chile Nativo. I was charged approximately $2500 US, including KimKim's fee, while others in my group paid approximately $1700 US!! I have requested a refund and will not use or recommend KimKim's services to my social network unless I am properly reimbursed. This is very unprofessional.

Hi Perry,

Thanks for your feedback.
Say Hueque stands out as a leader in local operator for more than 20 years, and our main goal is to create and to offer to our passengers a personal and authentic Experience.
Torres del Paine is a unique and exclusive place in South America that gives the opportunity to connect with the environment and spectacular landscapes.
In remote places like Torres del Parque National Park is, and in this kind of adventures, and at this time of the year (almost winter for this area), the climate can not be the best to visit it, but it gives you the authentic feeling to be the only group at the park, and avoid the crowd that you can find during summer.
We trust deeply in our guides and in what they consider that is the best for the group during these multi-days treks.
I sincerely hope that in spite of the weather and of not luxury refuges, you enjoyed an amazing place like Torres del Paine is.
Also keep in mind that when making a reservation through SAY HUEQUE, with all the services, you will receive a high level customer service that you would not expect when booking as individual services. We have experience in travel planning and custom itinerary design, we support 24x7 throughout the trip if any problem arises, we support operationally and in logistics in all destinations during your trip and we have the benefits of continuous and long-term investment to ensure a competitive pricing environment, while we work with the best partners, hotels and possible guides to ensure the perfect trip.
From our side we worked hard to do everything humanly possible for giving you the chance to have a memorable experience in our beautiful South America. We really care, and it is our main concern, your opinion. So, of course, we highly appreciate you take the time to write to us.

Best Regards,

Wonders of chile - 14 days, Chile - Apr 21 - May 5, 2019

This was my first time in South America and Chile, and also my first time as a solo traveler. Mery put together a fantastic and thorough 15 day itinerary for me in Chile covering all the highlights and more that I had not thought off. I am grateful and privileged to have covered so much of Chile in such a short amount of time. All credit for this goes to Mery and her team.

This was my first time in South America and Chile, and also my first time as a solo traveler. Mery put together a fantastic and thorough 15 day itinerary for me in Chile covering all the highlights and more that I had not thought off. I am grateful and privileged to have covered so much of Chile in such a short amount of time. All credit for this goes to Mery and her team.

The tours that were arranged were on-time, professional and very informative. The guides, whilst mainly catering to Spanish speaking passengers, also took the time and patience to explain the same to me in English.

I was also impressed with the accommodation that was booked, it felt like someone had really thought about the location and quality of the places. The accommodation in the various towns/cities was centrally located, close to shops and restaurants and very comfortable.

The highlights of the trip were the San Pedro de Atacama desert (would recommend the Altiplanics Lake tours, Laguna Cejar, Moon Valley tour & the Night Sky tour) which has so many varying and unique landscapes. Patagonia including the Torres del Paine national park and Balmaceda/Serrano glaciers are a must see, these are truly spectacular.

Overall a very well organised and thought out trip, that exceeded my expectations. Thank you for putting this together and ensuring I had a great experience. Would not hesitate to recommend kimkim/Say Hueque again.

Mery also booked a guided trek of Torres del Paine National Park, Chile, with Chile Nativo that was incredible. The park itself is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. But the treks were great in large part because of my guide Josefa aka Pepa. She was incredibly nice, helpful, and knowledgeable about the park and Patagonia in general. I am so greatful to have had her as my guide, she did an amazing job. Thank you Mery, Pepa, and kimkim for making my trip to Patagonia a success!

We had an incredible trip.

The street art and painted houses in Valpariso were interesting , Vina Del Mar was not.

I would highly recommend the drive we took from Puerto Montt through part of the lake district to Bariloche, while Bariloche is very touristy and commercialized the scenery around it is breath taking.
Our accommodations were all good especially as we were on a budget. It would have been nice to have had an early check in at San Pedro Atacama Hotel as we had been travelling since 3 AM and had arrived at the hotel at 10:30 AM and had to wait until 2 PM to check in. This was NOT disastrous but it would have been great to get into the room earlier.
The small hotel in Francis Drake in Porto Natales was really lovely and comfortable and the people there very sweet and accommodating.
The mix up with our final hotel in Santiago was unfortunate but Mery took care of it the moment we contacted her and it all worked out very nicely in the end.
