Milenka Omireis

Saludos! My name is Milenka and I was born in the city of Potosí and grew up in the beautiful city of La Paz, where I studied tourism. Every time I have the opportunity to travel around my country and know more about it it makes me feel more excited to share the rich cultural and natural history of Bolivia and the Andes with visitors from near and far.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Over the past five years, I have organized responsible travel in the highlands of Bolivia, including the spectacular Uyuni Salt Flats, Lake Titicaca, Sajama National Park and the city and valley of La Paz. Each destination has something different to offer and I love traveling to them and helping visitors make plans for their trips."

How did you get involved in travel?

"While I was studying tourism, one of my professors took my class to visit a small community in the countryside and that experience showed me just how much Bolivia has to share with visitors and how tourism can help communities value and protect their history, traditions, and nature. It was then that I knew I wanted to be a travel specialist and help Bolivia and Bolivians by protecting its natural and cultural history. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"When I begin work in tourism I had the opportunity to work as a guide for a couple from France who wanted to visit the community of Santiago de Okola. Helping them to understand the culture and nature of the community and the lake was an amazing, unforgettable experience. "

Kimkim matched us with La Paz on Foot in Bolivia. We were well taken care of by La Paz on Foot every step of the way. We spent the first two nights in La Paz, then one in Island of the Sun, then one in Tuni, and then back to La Paz, then one night in Uyuni, and one in Villa Mar, then two nights in San Pedro Atacama. We had our own guide and/or driver who patiently explained much about the Bolivian history, current situation, natural history, and any random questions we had. We were grateful for the opportunity to have visited Bolivia.

Overall, an amazing trip and well worth the extra $$
Milenka our local specialist was very patient with us and organised our trip with next-to-no fuss.
Our highlights were the Uyuni salt flats (almost too early in early Dec) and Macchu Picchu.

Wilfredo thank you for the information provided and safe driving. Ready to answer our questions and again very attentive. Finally to the highlight of our trip, Uyuni Salt Flats. Alvaro Oropeza was fantastic. He and his driver were amazing. Besides driving, the driver cooked and with help from Alvaro set up the lunch and the surprise bubbles and nibbles for the sunset. A wonderful experience. Alvaro thank you so much for making the time in Uyuni and the Eduardo Avaroa National reserve extra special and for helping us create fond memories. A big thank you also for helping us through customs crossing the border into Chile. Kimkim thank you. This is our second trip with you. Your attention to detail was excellent.

I spent a total of two weeks traveling in Bolivia booked through kimkim and its local partner. Everything was very well organized, all of my guides and drivers were on time and professional. Prior to my arrival a WhatsApp group was set up in case I needed to contact the operator, which was reassuring. This was a pretty ambitious trip with lots of internal flights, many different hotels, and a full program, and everything worked according to plan.

I did the 3 day tour of Uyuni. Milenka was a great travel agent and arranged everything so there was nothing I needed to do but enjoy my trip. Lucio was a great guide. My only suggestion, is to consider booking “luxury” accommodations over basic. The hotels were chilly and only one of the two hotels had hot water…so basic has a different meaning in Bolivia. That said, both were clean, and comfortable aside from being cold! The night bus was surprisingly nice and everyone I interacted with... Read more

It goes without saying that the scenery was spectacular and the wildlife and ecology of Bolivia were breathtaking.
