Beatriz De Pablo Rocha
The combination of the two places where I grew up (Madrid and a small village in Badajoz, Extremadura) has made me a passionate traveler almost from birth. Unknown destinations visited by travelers who ran away from clichés and unusual places have always caught my attention, and from my point of view, these are the places that best allow you to get to know a culture and its traditions.
I firmly believe that each of the trips we make changes our life (even just a little), and that is why I rely on experiences when I have to choose a new destination and the activities to enjoy there. I had the opportunity to spend a couple of weeks in a favela in Cape Town and listening to the real stories of the people living there absolutely changed my mind. Since I started traveling (through most of Europe and several destinations in Africa), I have felt the need to share these amazing and very diverse experiences with all the people who allow me to do it and create in them a memory for a lifetime.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"Custom-made itineraries and unique trips based in local experiences and the culture of Spain, Portugal and Morocco."
How did you get involved in travel?
"As I had to travel a lot between Madrid and Badajoz as a child, I started to get curious about all the places I passed by. That curiosity grew and over the time I began to take trips that allowed me to know different destinations and cultures. I decided to guide my career in the world of tourism, and for 5 years I have turned my passion into my job, organizing trips that create memories in the lives of others."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"It’s really difficult for me to choose just one experience, but as we are talking about unique experiences probably I have to talk about the first time I lived a Flamenco show at a private and really small Sacromonte Cave, in Granada. Flamenco has always been special for me and could sound like “a cliché” in our country, but to watch a live show in such a magical and familiar place was absolutely memorable. "

Beatriz was able to put together an incredible trip that let us see all the places we wanted to see in both Portugal and Morocco. I was so impressed by the guides in each place.

AMAZING 10-day trip to Spain!
Nov 19 - Nov 28, 2022
Wow, where to start? From the beginning of planning the trip, we had an amazing experience with Beatriz. She answered all of our questions super quickly and I really liked that the budget we discussed was stuck to, so there’s no surprises at the end when you get the invoice. We did a 10-day trip to Spain (Barcelona, Sevilla, and Madrid) and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. We wanted a trip that we had planned events like a tapas tour, cooking class, museums trips, day trips, etc.,... read more

Nov 1 - Nov 15, 2022
From start to finish, we felt like we were in good hands. We had a wonderful experience planning and taking our trip to Spain with Kim Kim. Our local agent, Beatriz De Pablo was consistently reliable and available to us both before we left, and also the whole time we were in Spain. And if she wasn’t in, she made sure to let us know the name and contact information of a colleague who was covering for her. That greatly helped in reducing the stress of traveling with my older parents, who... read more

Trip of a Lifetime!
Oct 29 - Nov 10, 2022
Bea was so patient and helpful in planning our trip to Portugal and Morocco! She checked in with us throughout the process and during the trip. The trip itself was incredible. All of the guides we had throughout the journey were fantastic, but particularly our two guides in Lisbon: Gisela Gouveia for our tour of the city and Paulo Pires for our day trip to Sintra. They were both so knowledgeable, kind, and fun. I would highly recommend them both to anyone who has never visited!

Go to Spain -- and work with Bea. She will take good care of you!
Sep 25 - Oct 16, 2022
Everything about the planning was wonderful-- and the reality was equally good, except for the hotels. So the logistics, the events, the guides were wonderful. Everything worked as planned -- and that is of course hugely important. The hotels selected were a big disappointment, and we should take part of the blame because we should have taken a closer look at the hotels selected. But we were under the impression that we'd be staying in 4star hotels and that speaking for myself, Kim... read more
Hi Ellen! Thank you so much for this incredibly detailed feedback! :) I really appreciate the details you put into it and thank you so much for your kind words to all your guides, I'm so happy you had a great time exploring our country with all of them. As I mentioned during your trip, we had to lower the category of your hotels to match your budget during the planning and booking process, but thank you so much for the feedback about them, all this information will be really helpful for us as we are constantly trying to improve. Sending you my best regards, Bea.
Great trip to Spain.
Oct 1 - Oct 17, 2022
From start to finish Beatriz was on top of things. She customized the trip for us and made changes, at our request, as we moved along. Also, she also provided the name of a backup when she was off so we always felt connected. Eduardo was very interesting and he took us on the walk around Granada through its scents - what a novel and interesting way to explore and learn about Granada. Jose Miguel, our hiking guide in the Sierra Nevada Mountains very quickly realized we were experienced walkers... read more
Hi Malcolm! Thank you SO much for taking the time to write this detailed review and for your kind words to all your guides!

Oct 8 - Oct 23, 2022
All the guides were very pleasant and knowledgeable.
Trip to Malaga was most memorable.
Hotel locations were very good but hotel in Granada was very noisy as there was an outdoor restaurant in front of the hotel and people were talking loud till after midnight.
Hi Homaira, thank you so much for your feedback! Is really helpful for us to keep improving each day. I'm so glad you had a great time learning about our country with your guides and discovered amazing places on the way :) Best regards, Bea.

Oct 7 - Oct 18, 2022
The trip to Portugal and Spain was planned out very well. Beatriz gave great advice on how many cities to visit with the 12 days we had , she advised not to pack too many cities due to time constraint and concerned that we would not be able to enjoy our time in each cities if we did not stay long enough in each city. Karin was also a great support and answered our questions. The itinerary in Trip plans was a great tool because we were able to download it and view it anytime. I like that all... read more

Beatriz and her team did an amazing job organizing our Gems of Southern Spain and Lisbon trip and was extremely responsive both before and during the trip when we needed help.

Oct 4 - Oct 12, 2022
The planning was great. The tour in Oviedo was ok we had a little difficult reaching Beatriz in the weekend when we reached Bilbao because we were trying to reach her by her e mail and phone number instead of the Kim Kim message. The tour guide at the Guggenheim museum kept insisting that our tour was an hour earlier than what we had written in our itenirary and she wanted to reschedule for the next day. The Puebloastur resort was wonderful. We really liked it and the transfers from the... read more
Hi Alberto! Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review and for your feedback. On your travel documents, you had all the detailed information on how to reach any of us at any time during your trip: we talked on the App chat before your trip to make sure you received the messages there, as that was the best way to stay in touch, and had the information on several direct numbers to call us during your trip, for weekdays and weekends, as we can't be in our computers or KimKim... read more
Personalized for our interests and timeline
Sep 14 - Sep 24, 2022
Beatriz found us some great places to stay. A stone house in a small farming village near Portugal's national park; and in Morocco, Riad Fes was one of the nicest hotels I've been in. The drivers and guides in Morocco were all friendly and well informed. read more
Hi Alex! Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a detailed feedback! I'm so happy you had a great time in Morocco with your guide and drivers and that you enjoyed Portugal :) It's been truly a pleasure to help you organize this trip. Best regards, Bea.
Portugal & Spain
Sep 10 - Sep 21, 2022
We had a wonderful trip to Portugal and Spain! All our accommodations were great and centrally located! All of our tours were wonderful with great and knowledgeable guides! The only issue was our driver from Lisbon to Porto! He was a horrible driver and I know Bill Moody has addressed that with you and you are looking into it!
Overall a wonderful experience!
Hi Barbara! Thank you so much for your kind words! I'm so glad you enjoyed all your accommodations and guided visits :) as mentioned to Bill a few days ago, we're still investigating the driver issue but, of course, thank you so much for keeping us updated on this so we are able to take action on it. It was a pleasure helping you organize this trip to Portugal and Spain! Best regards, Bea.
Granada, Seville, Madrid, Toledo - perfect holiday!!
Aug 12 - Aug 20, 2022
We had an amazing time visiting Madrid, Seville, Granada and Toledo. In each location, we loved having the local guides who provided so much insight into the history and beauty of each place. Their love of their city translated into a wonderful experience. We loved discovering the history of each place and getting insight into the hidden gems. Kimkim also made sure we got to experience the "high adventure" activities to break up the sight-seeing. Biking in Granada in the Sierra Nevada... read more

Guides: Martin, in Evora, Andrea in Silves Sara, Coimbra
Sep 2 - Sep 13, 2022
Guides: Martin, in Evora, Andrea in Silves Sara, Coimbra were most excellent on top of their game both in knowledge and story telling. The accommodations in general were just right. The Noble House (Evora) provided a good room and breakfast however parking is very limited and the walk to and from is not for the older. read more
Hi Jack! Thank you so much for your feedback as is really helpful for us to keep improving each day. I'm so glad you enjoyed every tour with your guides and discovered amazing places on the way. It's been truly a pleasure to help you organize this trip. Best regards, Bea.
Overall, our trip to Spain was amazing!
Sep 9 - Sep 14, 2022
Overall, our trip to Spain was amazing! There were only a couple issues that we had. When we first got there the private transfer from the airport, Miguel, didn’t speak any English. He wasn’t able to drop us off right at our hotel in Madrid. We were just getting there, trying to get our bearings, jet lagged and carrying all our luggage. We walked around for at least 20-30 mins pulling our luggage up steeps hills to find the hotel. There were 2 Petit palace hotels and no one, even the... read more
Hi Jen! Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review and for your honest feedback. In the travel documents we always set our contact numbers already with the prefix +34 so you just have to click on the number to start the call. The hotel where you were staying was in a pedestrian area that probably, due to the maintenance works in the area, has made access more difficult than usual. I greatly appreciate your feedback on this transfer and on the rest of the activities and tours and I'm so glad you enjoyed our country! Sending you my best regards, Bea.
This was an amazing trip-very authentic experiences.
Sep 2 - Sep 13, 2022
This was an amazing trip, Exceptionally well-planned, with all the details accounted for. For the most part, the guides were extremely knowledgeable and a great source of information. The pre-trip material gave many suggestions on things to do on free days and kimkin was extremely responsive when we had questions about logistics, meeting drivers, etc. The places kimkin picked for us to stay were not in the touristy mainstream, which is just what we wanted, so our experience felt very... read more

Sao Miguel and Lisbon
Sep 1 - Sep 12, 2022
Our trip was very well planned and Sao Miguel Island is much more beautiful than expected. The hotel view was so calming and delightful and the staff was eager to please. However, by the third day, we escaped the breakfast buffet as it was too crowded and the food became boring a repetitious. I may never eat scrambled eggs again.
Our first tour guide was Natasha who took us off-road to see the blue and green lakes at the top of the crater. She was very informative, but we later learned,... read more
Hi Pat! Thank you so much for your detailed feedback about your trip regarding your guides and hotels, all the information will definitely help us to keep improving each day as it is what we always strive for. As you mentioned, the Azores is a beautiful place mostly because the islands keep their natural environment almost untouched and that's the reason why you won't find any facilities in the mountains, as that would damage the protected areas. About Lisbon, thank you again for all the... read more
This trip was as cultural and gastronomic enriching as much as sightseeing.
Aug 24 - Sep 4, 2022
We had an overall great experience with the places chosen and the guides. We came home with a greater appreciation of the different cultures in the Spanish country.
In Madrid, Hotel 7 Islas was centrally located. The room and the breakfast buffet were good. Both Carlos with the tapas tour and Isabel with the city walk were excellent. Picking up the rental car took more time than expected, which made us a little stressed about making it on time for the wine tasting in La Rioja. We don't... read more
Hola Ricardo y Liana! Gracias por vuestras palabras y feedback tan detallado! I'm so glad to know that you had a great time discovering the different cultures and parts of our country with your guides and that you enjoyed the balance between the different activities and places that you visited.

Barcelona- our stay at Be Mate Gracia was incredible- great location (thank you Bea!), and great space for families. The reception and all staff there was so helpful and kind and attentive throughout. I would highly recommend them.
Our bike tour was great, great guide!

Portugal Cities Friendly and All Uphill--Wear Hiking Shoes
Jun 25 - Jun 29, 2022
Kimkim schedule in Lisbon became confused when we tried to confirm food tour. Resulted in hurry- up-and-wait in blazing sun; finally made connection with delightful guide two hours off schedule.
Enjoyed provided dining and fell in love with fado music. On our own we walked (always uphill) to the Botannical Gardens--impressive green oasis in the middle of the city.

City and the Coast - A Perfect Catalunya Experience
Jul 7 - Jul 17, 2022
Our trip to Catalunya was fantastic. Working together with Bea translated into a perfect mix of city culture and relaxing fun on the coast.
We absolutely loved our tapas tour to kick off our first day in Barcelona. It was a PERFECT introduction to the Catalan culture. Another food orientated experience we enjoyed was a cooking class. The experience was special because we were welcomed into the chef's home with a small group. The personal and semi-private atmosphere with other people from... read more

Amazing Lisbon and Barcelona trip
Jun 25 - Jul 2, 2022
What began as panic and inability to plan our family vacation in a timely manner, turned into a great blessing. Bea was so helpful and easy to work with, she helped us create a trip to remember! In Portugal, we started with a great tuk tuk tour and then Elsa, who showed us local treats! Our most favorite was touring Sintra with Nuno who was a perfect mix of guide and friend and we had the most wonderful lunch and day of exploring. In Barcelona, Dani was amazing- took us all by surprise with... read more

Our guide who took us up the Duora Valley and recommended the lunch venue was terrific, so much so that we treated him to join us for lunch. Also, the wine tasting in the valley was terrific as well, as we bought a case of wine there.
Special thanks to Beatrice who made Kimkim the terrific company that it is. She was very easy to reach if we had questions, she planned a trip that we will never forget. We told her we had 12 days and she planned them perfectly, she is so knowledgeable. We... read more

Beatriz was SENSATIONAL planning every part of the trip and no request was too difficult for her to accommodate...and she always did it with a smile. She stayed in touch with us via text throughout the trip and was able to make some helpful suggestions. She was always responsive to our questions and concerns.

Honeymoon in España
Jun 7 - Jun 18, 2022
The whole experience was easy and the perfect blend of activity and relaxation . Beatriz worked with us the entire time to ensure we had the perfect honeymoon. From the guides at La sagrada familia, el real Alcázar, and the Alhambra to the romantic winery picnic or sailboat experience with Spanish guitar it was all perfect and beautiful. Bea would send us messages and check in with us, and also give us local recommendations along the way. She even told all of the event planners it was our... read more

Hi Anuradha! Thank you so much for your kind words and for letting me know these small details. Of course, we would have been able to include more private transfers to arrive at your activities if mentioned, as well as we did to reach the hotels and train stations.

Bea was great to work with - super responsive and helpful as... read more
