Tiernan O'Rourke Araujo

I am a very curious person with lots of energy to arrange the best possible unique holidays for visitors to Spain and Portugal. After having studied tourism in Galicia, Spain, I have now travelled and arranged trips to the destinations I can cover.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I specialize in tailor-made holidays to Spain and Portugal. Trips could be staying in bigger cities like Barcelona, Madrid, Vigo, etc... or just relaxing in coastal & mountain areas staying in small, charming villages such as Cangas do Morrazo, Moaña, among others. For all nature buffs discover hidden places surrounded by nature savouring the local gastronomy and wines in a sustainable way, in tune with the environment which is so important nowadays. Take walks along nature trails, historic old quarters, and in the wine countryside. All in a slow way of touring enjoying every landscape and experience in each destination. If walking tours are not for you, I can arrange driver-guided tours all over Spain and Portugal. Just let me know your preferences and I will design the perfect tailor-made holiday for you in Spain and Portugal."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I love learning about different cultures and exploring places around the world, especially being in contact with nature. Traveling is in my DNA, being born in Vancouver, Canada but living in Spain all my youth, and the many trips to Scotland visiting the homeland of our ancestors, I have made traveling an innate quality."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I have travelled to Scotland and spent 6 months exploring this wonderful country. Admiring its breathtaking landscapes, cities (Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, Stirling and St Andrews) and great historical and cultural heritage (magnificent castles, cathedrals and old ruins). I also felt that Scotland had a strong connection with Galicia in terms of Celtic culture and music (the bagpipes) as well as in the lifestyle of the small fishing villages. It was a great experience to discover its unique gastronomy where I tasted traditional dishes like Haggis, Neeps & Tatties which I fell in love with and I also tasted the excellent Scotch Whisky, enjoying all the different flavours."

- Pedro on the Duoro Valley tour was also fantastic. Appreciated his insights throughout the day. (Side note, the tour and tour guide at the second winery were not impressive. Although the meal was good.)
- Fabio was a wonderful driver. Really appreciated him accommodating the lunch stop at Nazare. (Side note, we had lunch at Maria do Mar in Nazare. Recommended by the hotel. Great seafood and great staff down a side laneway.)
- Last trip was with Roi. He probably had the most stress to deal with the timing and the crowds at the palace. But the best part of the tour was when he seemed to go 'off script' and walked with us down through the trees/vegetation and ponds. Really appreciated his willingness to show us that part of the area.

Great experience with the KimKim team. Everything went off without a hitch. All of the accommodations were nice. The tours and tour guides were particularly fantastic. Rui, Ricardo and Joana were the best. Very satisfied with our entire trip and will happily book through KimKim again. No ten day tour would go off perfectly and there were a couple of hiccups that weren’t a big deal but I would likely change if I had to do things over: 1. We had a rental car while we were in Lisbon. I understand why it was arranged but it really wasn’t necessary while we were there. 2. The room that was booked for our first three days was nice but it was called a family suite on the hotel’s website. It was really just one room with a pull out couch. It was spacious and the room and hotel were nice but we would have preferred two rooms. It wasn’t really a big deal but if I was staying at this hotel again I would be sure there were two separate rooms. 3. Our second hotel had two rooms and was wonderful but there was no pull out couch in the separate room. Luckily the hotel brought in a roll away bed and our youngest could fit on the smallish love seat. Problem solved. I would consider these issues minor inconveniences. Overall the trip was something that our family will never forget. Thanks so much to Tiernan for all of his hard work and a special thanks to our tour guides who took great care of us. Also NuNu was the best at driving us and taking care of us while we were traveling.

Very nice and people were super nice. Nice accommodations. The only hiccup was expecting the family suite would in fact have two rooms as might be the custom in the US. While this one appears to have two rooms on the website, it is only one room with a pull out couch. Otherwise the hotel was nice.

I want to start off by saying that Kim Kim is hands down the best travel agency I have ever worked with. From start to finish, they made the planning process simple and stress free and curated the most amazing Portuguese experience we could have ever asked for! Tiernan, our local specialist, worked very hard to plan a dream Portugal vacation for my husband and I to celebrate our anniversary! He was extremely helpful, communicative and attentive and made appropriate changes to the itinerary when needed. We both work in the wine industry in the United States and wanted a true wine experience in Portugal and Tiernan went above and beyond to make sure we had just that! It was also very easy to get in touch with him while on our trip if we had any last minute needs or questions. The hotels that Tiernan chose were perfect and convenient to everything we wanted to do! The tours and suggestions he made throughout our trip were all amazing! If you are traveling to Portugal, I highly recommend reaching out to Tiernan and letting him plan the vacation of your dreams!

A few experiences that we want to point out:
We had a lovely dinner at a local's home on our second night in Lisbon. Our host Margarida and her son were fabulous! We were only supposed to stay for 2 hours and ended up staying for 4! Margarida was so friendly and welcoming and cooked us an amazing 3 course meal paired with wine! She is definitely one of the highlights of our trip and we will never forget our night with her!

We visited several vineyards throughout our stay and all were incredible. We would highly recommend visiting all of these amazing operations and we bought several bottles from each that we visited! Tiernan did a great job choosing some wineries that were larger commercial operations and much smaller, family owned operations as well! We enjoyed the experience and the wines at each stop! If they are offering tapas with your tasting, we highly recommend trying them as they enhance the experience!
Wineries we visited:
Casal Santa Maria
Adega Belem
Prova Wine Bar
Quinta De Crasto
Quinta Do Infantado
Sem Igual
Vale dos Ares

I also want to give a huge shout out to two of our drivers: Ronado Santos and Pedro!! Ronado took us to Colares and Sintra and we had a wonderful time getting to know him! We took him up on his suggestions for lunch and dinner and both were absolutely delicious! He was extremely helpful and friendly and didn't mind when we took too long at our first vineyard stop! Tiernan then set us up with Pedro, our local guide/winemaker, who met us on our first day in Porto and was with us for the rest of our trip! He truly was the best guide we could have asked for and we appreciated how helpful, friendly and passionate he was! His knowledge of Portugal's history is extensive and there wasn't a question he didn't know the answer to! Pedro took us to Douro Valley and Vinho Verde and we enjoyed every minute of getting to know him! It was very exciting being able to spend so much time with a local winemaker so that we could compare notes on everything wine! I cannot recommend Pedro enough and we hope to see him again on our next visit!

Again, we cannot thank the Kim Kim team and especially Tiernan enough for a magical, dream vacation to Portugal! We could not have asked for a better anniversary trip and learning experience. We look forward to working with Tiernan again in the future! Obrigada!!!
