Tiago Filipe

I've always traveled extensively with my family and from a very early age developed a strong taste for it. Portuguese were once sailors and discoverers and I like to think of myself as one too: a discoverer of people, food, landscapes, cultures and, very often, new friends. This is what I like to experience as a travel, and it is exactly what I try to convey to people traveling with me!

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"The whole of Portugal in terms of places and cultural, gastronomic and outdoors activities (where surf plays an important role!)"

How did you get involved in travel?

"I studied in the UK in the year 2000 and got to know a great number of people from different nationalities. Many of them came to visit me in Portugal and I started showing them around for fun. This "hobby" grew in me and I started getting an immense pleasure from it until it became a very serious thing!!"

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Vietnam and Cambodia 2010. Me and my cousin went to attend a traditional Vietnamese wedding where I was the best man of a big friend of mine and got to visit both countries by buses, motorbikes and tuk-tuk some times self-guided some times taking advantage of the local friends expertise! 3 amazing weeks!!"

Tiago is part of the following groups: Portugal Travel Agents, the Azores Travel Agents
Sete Cidades in São Miguel Island
Island Hopping in the Azores : São Miguel, Faial, Pico & Terceira - 15 Days

Explore the volcanic landscapes of the Azores on this 15-day self-driving tour that highlights four of the Portuguese archipelago's islands. Start in São Miguel, where you'll kayak across crater lakes and try stew made with geothermal heat. Then, hop between Faial, Pico, and Terceira to hike dormant volcanoes, explore deep magma chambers, and swim in natural pools made by solidified lava.

View of Câmara de Lobos in southeast Madeira
Self-Drive Adventure in Madeira - 8 Days

This relaxed road trip introduces you to the Portuguese island of Madeira, whose volcanic landscapes and natural beauty make it a popular getaway from the mainland. Discover the charming Old Town and botanical gardens of its capital Funchal. Hike between Madeira's two highest peaks of Pico do Areeiro to Pico Ruivo, then decompress by taking a ferry to the island of Porto Santo—beaches renowned for their healing properties.

Views over Odeceixe Beach near Aljezur
Self-Drive Southern Portugal: Lisbon, Alcácer do Sal, Aljezur & Lagos - 6 Days

Explore southwestern Portugal's spectacular scenery at your own pace on this 6-day road trip from Lisbon to Lagos. Set out from the capital to wind your way south through a land of sweeping beaches, whitewashed villages, and unspoiled countryside. Along the way, you'll stand at the edge of mainland Europe at Cabo da Roca, cross the Sado Estuary by ferry, and explore the wild beauty of Costa Vicentina National Park.

Sunset over the coastline of Terceira
Self-Drive Azores Adventure: São Miguel & Terceira - 8 Days

The volcanic landscape of the Azores archipelago is a nature lover's paradise. Begin on São Miguel, which is a hot spot of geothermal activity. Dip in thermal springs, kayak across a lagoon, and eat stew cooked from the heat of rocks before flying to the smaller but equally lush island of Terceira nearby. Marvel at Terceira's brightly colored buildings, relax on its epic lava formations and get lost in the fog of its ancient laurel forest.

Sun shines in the Douro Valley
Portugal's Food & Wine: Lisbon, Porto & the Douro Valley - 8 Days

Discover the culinary and cultural heart of Portugal on this road trip through Lisbon, Porto, and the Douro Valley. Begin in the 2000-year-old capital, whose antique buildings and local delights like pasteis de Belém make it perfect for history and food lovers alike. Head north to the colorful city of Porto, home of port wine and local pastries whose origins are as rich as their taste. Finally, explore the world's oldest demarcated wine region of the Douro Valley, which produces some of the finest table wines in Portugal.

Madeira's lush coastline
Lisbon, Porto & Madeira - 9 Days

This 9-day itinerary starts in Lisbon, where you'll savor local treats and traditional music as you explore the capital by foot and tram. Hit the road and head north to Porto, where world-class wine cellars and riverside views await, then hop over to Madeira to end your adventure among the verdant, volcanic landscapes of Portugal's "Island of Eternal Spring."

Tiago did an excellent job both planning our trip and helping us to navigate. He provided a comprehensive and well organized document, complete with links, that described our itinerary, recommended points of interest and gave useful information on accommodations. He also included other useful resources, such as advice on driving in Portugal.

Tiago was most responsive during our trip when we had questions. Prior to and during our trip, Tiago would promptly respond when we contacted him. He contacted us immediately I’ll arrival and greeted us at the airport. Prior to picking up our car rental, Tiago drove us to our hotel, showed us some sights along the way, and showed us where to lock up our rental car. He also picked us up the following evening to bring us to two of our planned events. When one of our events had to be rescheduled, he most effectively integrated it into our next day’s itinerary.

The trip that Tiago planned was excellent. Every accommodation he selected exceeded our expectations. Also, he recommended that we go off the beaten path and visit Évora. This city was a highlight of the trip.

We really enjoyed working with Tiago and would most defiant key recommend him to anyone visiting Portugal.

Thank you Patrick!!

I'm very happy that you enjoyed your trip!!

Also happy to understand that you liked Évora, I don't think that either you or Patty had told me about that, and maybe I also forgot to tell you that my father's family is from there, so it's a special place to me!!

Please stay in touch!!

I could not have planned nor created a better experience. Tiago knew exactly what we wanted and planned everything to a perfect T. He was extremely helpful and was easily accessible at any time. Airport pickup was easy, all our scheduled accommodations were quick and easy to access. Our guide Joel was awesome and knowledgeable with the history and any questions we had. It is tough to share a favorite experience because it was all fantastic! Tiago and Joel have become lifetime friends and Portugal is now a place close to our hearts. Joel took the time to cater every experience as our guide in the city to what we wanted and was easily adaptable to changes. Our next trip we will be seeking Joel and Tiago to discuss Futbol and Super Bock!! We will be back. Kim Kim is a great connection and I’m more than happy with this experience. Tiago we will be back and remember surfing in Malibu, oh yeah!

Dear Ashley,

Thank you so much! Not for the review, but rather for being two great persons!!

I'm afraid I won't be of much help in the beer/Super Bock discussion, because I don't like beer. However on the football/soccer front it's a different subject. Like I said before the only thing that you need to bear in mind is that green (Sporting Lisbon) is good and red (Benfica) is bad. That easy!!!

Please send Andrew my regards and be aware that I'll come to Malibu to meet you and surf!!!

All the best,

There were some hiccups due to Mother Nature but Tiago informed us and help us plan alternate to our itinerary. Our driver Luis who was there majority of our trip was amazing and knowledgeable of the country. Dioego who gave us a day tour of Lisbon was very knowledgeable and helped us along the way with buying pastry and communicating with the locals. Can not stress enough how much we enjoyed our trip because we decided to use Kim Kim to plan our trip. I would recommend to anyone and will use their services in future.

Dear Falgun,

Thank you so very much for your kind words!! I told you before but I repeat: EVERYONE WHO WAS INVOLVED IN THE TRIP, ESPECIALLY THE DRIVERS MANUEL IN PORTO AND DIOGO IN LISBON SAID YOU WERE A VERY NICE AND KIND GROUP!!

And I was able to testify that in the short moment we spent together!

I only regret two things:
1 - The rough sea in the Algarve which didn't allow you to have a water perspective of that amazing coast (better luck next time you come!! :D )
2 - Not being able to find you more than 4 orange kit-kats!

Please say hello to everyone for me!!!

Once we rented a car, the itinerary develops for ids was varied and exciting; the accommodations were perfect.

Highlights: at the risk of listing them all, Douro Valley, Porto, Tomar, and Évora and the sites at those locations too my list.

We had a terrific experience through KimKim and we will recommend to others and hopefully take another trip with you soon.

Even with the difficulties we encountered along the way, the addressing of which Tiago provided invaluable support, we were charmed by the southern coast and had great fun surfing -- even in the wind and cold! Also, your restaurant recommendations were excellent. I was initially pursuing those that I had researched myself, but once I tried one of yours, I realized that that was the way to go. Thank you for everything, Tiago, and we hope to visit Portugal again soon.

This is a good hotel that perhaps comes more fully into its own during the high season. It seemed somewhat chaotic and understaffed, which may have been a result of coming back from Covid. Also, the pools outside are not heated so it's not pleasant for swimming if it's cool outside. The indoor pool isn't especially nice (though probably good for small children), so that's not a great option. Much was closed in the hotel while we were there also, which may have been due to it's not being high season. Our room with the sea view was lovely.
