Every single time I have the opportunity to travel, my goal is to fully experience the destination. I truly believe that the essence, the context & the materialization are the key factores to fully unveil an incredible and memorable travel experience.
- As a local and travel expert, I know the essence of each destination.
- By experiencing/knowing the essence of each place/destination, I know the context in which they flow.
- Due to the relationship I have built with local suppliers over the years I know exactly how to materialize the essence in the right context.
This is me - I care, so you can travel carefree!

How did you get involved in travel?
"I was born and raised in Sintra and since I was then I won the taste for traveling and exploring the world. By the time I reached 18, I decided that I wanted to assist others with their trips and enrolled in Tourism Degree to acquire not only skills, but also the knowledge needed to achieve my goals within this work field. Since then, I never stopped doing what I love and now, more than ever, I am really happy for sharing my experience with travelers through my own company."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"Memorable experiences are the ones that change the way you see the world! They´re funny, they´re frightening and they´re fascinating.
Something that is still remarkable in my life, dates back to a few years ago when I applied to volunteer program to help other people. I realized that you don´t need that much to help people around you. Having that in mind, I try the best I can to share this idea with people around me.
Tourism is a business from people to people and it will only make sense if you care about the others."

I can’t express how much we enjoyed our trip to Portugal! Pedro and Joao exceeded our expectations both with the trip they planned for us as well as their responsiveness when anything came up along the way! While we enjoyed everything we did and all the places we stayed, we particularly enjoyed our walking tour of Lisbon with Ricardo, our drive to Sinatra with Jose, the beautiful Vila Vita Parc Hotel in the Algarve and the Aurora boat tour to see the caves!

Best trip ever!
Aug 6 - Aug 14, 2022
Gosh, Portugal was never on my radar till a few weeks ago. We spontaneously cancelled our planned trip to Ba Hamar and went in a different direction. Being familiar with KimKim, my wife found Pedro to be the most experienced/ highest reviews on the KimKim sight when it came to Portugal. We stayed in Lisbon for 3 nights at the Tivoli. Pedro scheduled our hotel, and a walking tour, as well as coordinated our driver around our schedule.
Then the driver drove us to Algarve. Pedro put us... read more
19 days in Portugal
Jul 15 - Aug 2, 2022
We reviewed the guides, the hotels, and the itineraries every day with Pedro so refer to him. Generally speaking, the guides were very good and professional and spoke English quite well. The drivers were always punctual, well dressed, spoke English well and drove us to our destinations in E- class Mercedes. Certainly, kudos to the drivers. Although we had 4-star hotels, a couple of hotels were a little disappointing. They didn't have wash cloths, they didn't have tissues, the final hotel,... read more
