About this trip

Join us on our Coffee Farm tour with Don José. We first met Don José’s through his daughter, Gloria, who participates in a program at our sister non-profit, Fundación Fénix. Her husband, Jose Antonio was a volunteer firefighter who passed away during the rescue efforts during the June 3rd, 2018, eruption of the Fuego Volcano. It’s been an honor to get to know Gloria and her family and we are excited to work with them as a part of our sustainable tourism program. 


Upon arriving at their home, we will have a delicious home-cooked meal. Then it’s time to get even further off the beaten path as we climb into the back of Don Jose’s pick up truck and ride through the farmland of Alotenango to visit his small coffee plot. Here, he will teach us about all the steps involved in making your morning cup of joe including cultivation, harvest, processing, and roasting. You will also enjoy spectacular views of the countryside and not only will you see coffee but many other plants such as corn, avocado, beans, jocotes and various trees and medicinal plants. After our time at the farm, we will return to Don Jose’s home to taste a cup of his delicious coffee before saying goodbye to our friends.

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.

Such a great trip with great trip leaders, guides and fellow travelers. Lots of fun and varied activities with plenty of time for self exploration. I would highly recommend the trip for those looking to experience the many charms of Spain. - and the food!

I’ve just returned home from 17 days on Heart of Travel’s first fabulous trip to Spain. We visited Barcelona, Granada, Malaga, Seville, and Madrid— not to mention side trips to the smaller towns of Ronda and Cordoba. Chelsea and Pam amazed me daily! Their ability to research artsy boutique hotels, small family owned businesses for us to experience, along with their attention to detail and ability to respond to glitches was impressive. I loved going into two homes for cooking classes with delightful women. Our guided tour through Sagrada Familia was a highlight as was spending time in Parque Guell in a Barcelona. I thoroughly enjoyed our kayak outing and would have liked to have done a city bike tour for a bit of variety and exercise too! We saw amazing citadels, mosques, cathedrals, and a bullring. Thank you ladies for organizing a wonderful tour and helping to create a “family” of fellow travelers.

We booked heart of travel services with only a limited amount of time before our actual trip took place. This is my second time using their services and as always they go above and beyond. Chelsea's communication and organizational skills always amaze me. Selvyn, who was my tour guide once again is extremely knowledgeable, kind and funny. My friends and I had such an amazing time! It was their first trip to Guatemala and they already stated we will all be going back and using Heart of Travel services to explore other areas of beautiful Guatemala. I highly recommend anyone who is considering booking a tour to do so. They offer an experience that allows you to really get to feel and know the people of the country you are visiting and as an avid traveler not many companies do this. I love Heart of Travel and the amazing work they do in the communities they serve and am looking forward to utilizing their services not only in Guatemala but in other parts of the world.

This was an amazing trip. The accommodations were great, comfortable and varied. We enjoyed the hotels as much as we enjoyed the change of pace and the stay at the Air B & B near Seville.. It was definitely comprehensive and we got to experience many regions of Spain and the pace felt just right. There was always the option of opting out and having some time to explore on our own which was welcomed. We not only visited the museums and Cathedrals that each city had to offer, in addition, there were also opportunities to vacation and go to the beach, kayak and go sailing/boating. We enjoyed the food as well as the opportunity to learn how to make Paella, Sangria and delicious Moorish sweet treats. Rather than piling on and off of a designated bus we used a variety of transportation methods including the metro in Barcelona, small buses/vans, hired cars and a flight from Barcelona to Granada. If I could go to Spain again in the future I would do it again with Heart of Travel. The leaders, Chelsea and Pam, were there for us 100 per cent, and took care of all the details. They were creative problem solvers, warm and have good travel skills. It was a pleasure to experience Spain with them.

It was a very pleasant trip, with a well balanced combination of activities. There was the Sunday bike ride on closed-to-car-traffic Reforma Blvd, visits to neighborhoods and coffee shops (including as a site for one of our many Spanish lessons!), visits to the main parks, several museums (Frida Kahlo, Palacio des Bellas Artes, and the Anthropology Museum), artisanal markets, the historic district, Xochimilco, Teotihuacan, Ballet Folklorico. To name a few of our outings! There were also quite a number of absolutely fabulous restaurants (lunch or dinner). Dominique prepared an excellent Spanish workbook directly related to our activities which was very helpful and explored new vocabulary and expressions for an intermediate level of students. Our local guide Daniel was extremely knowledgeable and Dominique and Eimy (both with Heart of Travel) were both very attentive to the needs of the group. The fact that Dominique has lived in Mexico City was also helpful. We did a lot of activities - but not too many! The pace was good. There was adequate solo time. I would definitely go on another trip with Heart of Travel!
