Paulo Torres

As a child I grew up moving a lot due to my father's job. That's when my passion for travel started and when I realized that traveling is a unique and priceless experience everyone should try. Back in Brazil, it didn't take long until I started working in the travel industry and it's been now almost 10 years of experience. Traveling is good, but traveling without worries and with the special touch of those who know the hidden spots of the country is even better. I feel pleased and privileged to be able to help other people to discover my beloved country and I always do my best to meet expectations and guarantee a unique experience for each traveler I have the opportunity to meet.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I have extensive knowledge in tailor-made and customized travel. My main goal is to unveil Brazilian destinations and local culture by offering exclusive and unusual experiences all over the country."

How did you get involved in travel?

"Back to Brazil after living almost 15 years abroad, I started working for a french local travel agency. After many years, I decided to start my own tour operator to do things my way. Fortunately, it has been a success. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I will certainly not forget the time I spend in Japan. The culture, the habits, the people, the food... it's all so different that it's hard to believe. Knowing such a different place was very enriching and brought me a lot of learning."

Paulo, our local representative for KimKim, really helped us out after one of our flights were cancelled. He worked into the evening from home to make sure we were looked after. When you are a foreigner who doesn't know the language of the country this is how a trip can be ruined or fantastic memories can be created for a life time. Paulo was amazing.

Cynthia Lebrao, our English tour guide, at the Pousada Uacari was amazing. Her experience with the area and because she was a biology major her vast knowledge of the mammals, birds, reptiles, insects, flora and fauna was very helpful. Her demeaner, laid-back and positive, when working with the team of locals, who helped as tour guides, was amazing to watch and fit well with the whole experience of an ecotour.
