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!!"

Hi Laura,

I confess I receive your review with great surprise.

First of all, I must say that I'm very sorry that the trip didn't go as well as you wished. I understand that this might have frustrating for you but, believe me, this is just as disappointing for me.

We discussed the itinerary a number of times and I think I always tried to give you the best possible inputs for you to make the most of your trip, suggested different locations for you to stay and even during your stay always tried, together with the guide, accommodate last minute tweaks that you requested.

I also understand that the guide-driver might not have met your expectations, but I can guarantee you that he's an official guide and he actually gave me a positive feedback about your visit. And I spoke with him on a daily basis so, once again, it was with a bit of a shock that I received your comments.

Nonetheless, I fully respect how you feel and I'd very much like to have the opportunity to talk with you over the phone to understand a bit better what didn't go well and understand if there's anything I could do to make up for your experience and/or to improve our services. I'll text you in our thread.

Kind Regards,

Tiago

Tiago gave us so much history, introduced us to new foods, and talked about Portuguese traditions, old and new. He took great care to make sure our trip was perfect in every way. The hotels were so nice – – if nothing else, please stay at the Quinta de Sao Luis in Douro Valley. It’s a must! We saw the Algarve coast from east to west and experienced the different land and waterscapes. We took time to enjoy the beautiful beaches, caves, and sunsets. We did walking tours, a river boat ride, kayaking, wine tastings, and a once in a lifetime incredible day on a yacht. We also had time built in to wander on our own and relax. Tiago was so knowledgeable, flexible, kind, and caring. He tended to every detail of our trip. We never would have experienced or learned so much on our own. We thank him so much and will forever cheer for his team…. Go Sporting!!

Tiago's expertise was critical to help us make the best of our trip. he was patient, knowledgeable and very accommodating to our group's needs (which were a lot since we had 5 people). He even created a WhatsApp group so we could stay connected and checked up on us often to make sure that we provided all the information we needed and that everything was going well during our trip.

Both islands were amazing and the hikes suggested by Tiago were unbelievable. We were lucky in that the weather cooperated a lot and we were able to do almost everything int he agenda that Tiago prepared. Some of the places we went to (like the volcanic rock pools in Terceira) we wouldn't have known about if it wasn't for Tiago's recommendations.

Our group traveled to the Azores in December (low season), which was great weather wise (not too cold), but I definitely want to go back in May (high season) to fully appreciate the beauty of the natural flowers that were not in bloom during our trip.

Hotel Review
Senhora da Rosa Tradition & Nature Hotel
Ponta Delgada

Great experience staying at Senhora da Rosa Tradition & Nature Hotel. The building is beautiful and the rooms were gorgeous. Everything was very unique and it felt very special. We ate at both restaurants within the hotel on different days and the food was fantastic. They also have a bar which made great cocktails. We all wanted to try some of the amazing treatments offered at their SPA, but because it was low season (we were there during Christmas) there wasn't a lot of availability when we arrived. Also, we had a pretty tight schedule so our options were limited.

Authenticity & Character
Location
The hotel is not located in the center of town, so a car is definitely needed, but it was less than a 10 minute drive to get to any place within the town of Ponta Delgada. I also liked that it was sort of removed from the main streets, which made the hotel and the vibe very peaceful.

My husbad, and I never had a guide before, but decided to sign up for it, with my sister and partner in order to spend time with them in Portugal.

Although we had little personal contact with Tiago, he was very helpful sending us information and keeping everything organized, between 3 individuals. He even gave us tips on the rest of our trip, on our own in Northern Portugal.
Since culture and history is our main focus on vacations, this was absolutely perfect. We learned and saw different areas of Lisboa and learned the significance of the neighborhood´s architerectual and artistic styles coming from many different cultures. The history was mostly unknown to us, and very interesting. Joel showed us the most beautiful scenery on two outings outside of Lisboa and took us to a castle and to the furthermost corner of the country, which was great between "a head full of cultural and historical information." He introduced us to two unforgettable meals and booked a Fado evening, with about 6 courses, including the two heartful and melancholic Fado musicians, repectively singers. It was local, meaning that it was not a typical touristic "Fado evening." We also had our first food tour, which had much different array of foods, as well as a very enthusiastic guide. It was so much fun, we will do it in other cities, as well.
The tour was a variety of experiences, that were well put together. I could go on and on about how much we learned and enjoyed. Joel love and enthusiasm of Portugal was contagious. Last but not least, Joel thoroughly surpassed all of our expectations. We absolutely recommend booking with Kim Kim. After the tour, we did not find it expensive at all, as originally assumed, after the amazing experience.

Hotel Review
Dom Carlos Liberty

The most important for us, in choosing a hotel in the city is the location. With Dom Carlos, we were not disappointed. It is close enough to the inner city to walk in 10 minutes, but quiet enough that one does not experience the traffic. The neighborhood had a variety of well priced local restaurants, with local cuisine, as oposed to expensive and low quality tourst food. The room was quiet, elegant and clean. The staff was very accomadating and hospitable. The buffet had anything one could wish for, and was hygenic and well organized.
