The Heart of Travel was born out of a deep-rooted love and passion for travel, art, history, food, nature, culture and adventure as well as a call to give back to the communities and people that had already provided us with so much. The travel industry has long been bombarded with double decker tour busses, beach front resorts and cruise ships, often at the expense of the local communities. As a response to this failing system, we began a boutique travel company that allows clients to explore new places in an authentic and non-touristy way, offering travelers a more intimate and unique experience all while removing the stress and hassle of researching, planning, bargain hunting, reserving and more that goes along with planning a trip or vacation.

What a great trip! Great accommodations, great food and great guides. Great company too. The scenery and wildlife were almost too much to take in. Thanks, again, to Chelsea and Heart of Travel for everything they do to make our travels so easy and enjoyable.

I highly recommend the HoT team if you're looking to get the most out of your trip to Guatemala. I have known Chelsea for a while and was delighted to be able to use the HoT teams services. From the moment I outlined what we were looking for, Chelsea made sure to get me all the information I needed and a quote really quickly. We arranged the Acetenango volcano hike with HoT and it couldn't have been better. Our guides were incredible and went above and beyond (including carrying our backpacks - this hike is not easy!) and we had the best time. I felt incredibly safe and well looked after. Chelsea also made sure we had a ton of food and snacks, even catering for a vegan which is not easy for an overnight expedition with very little amenities! We also booked transfers in and around Guatemala with HoT - they all went very smoothly and every trip was well organized. When we threw in a last minute change, they were super accommodating which meant we were able to squeeze in even more sightseeing! If you're into attention to detail, great customer service, flexibility and a sense that someone else is doing the thinking and organising for you, choose HoT!

We did the Mountaintour with Quads. Grest Tour, niice guide, delicious food. Even my 15 year old son enjoyed it so much. Also we enjoyed the volcano Tour. One by horse and one hiking. Sat in the "Lava" had picknick and of course warm marshmellows. Unforgetable day.

I found Heart of Travel through a blog by a Claire. I inquired about a shuttle between Guatemala City and Antigua, and how it was complicated by meeting up with family members and luggage. Chelsea met us at the airport with two vans. It was an incredible way to begin our ten days vacation. We used Heart all through the week. Chelsea also set us up for our return trip to airport and Rio Dulce, and the Covid tests needed for return to US. Thank you!! I can't say it enough. Thank you also for Hobbitland, volcano and coffee farm. I leave feeling we did some of the real Guatemala.

One of the best cooking classes I've ever done! The Heart of Travel + Cuscun Team catered the meals to be veggie friendly for us so we were able to try traditional Guatemalan food with a veggie twist - which is difficult to find in the country. The views, atmosphere, outdoor rooftop kitchen, and mainly the company was incredible. Felt like we were getting together with old friends, having some drinks, and making a meal together. Learned a lot and 100% recommend this! Antigua highlight for sure!
