      About this trip

      We are beyond excited for Heart of Travel's inaugural 14 day/ 13 night excursion to Argentina: Wine, Culture, & Patagonia tour. On this trip we'll experience the bustling metropolitan city of Buenos Aires, making sure to indulge in all the delicious gastronomy, visit world-famous wine country in Mendoza, while also getting a healthy dose of nature and stunning views as we venture into the Southern region of Patagonia. 

      On this tour, we'll start by learning about the arrival of the Spanish, the massive European migrations at the end of the 19th century, and analyze how the history of the nation has impacted modern-day Argentina. We'll spend our days in Buenos Aires watching live tango shows, meandering the ever-charming streets of the city, and sharing meals with a local Argentine family. In Mendoza, taste a local Malbec while also learning about the entire wine-making process, and get an expert's opinion on which bottle you should take home from our in-house sommelier and Program Director extraordinaire, Pamela Aguilar. While in Patagonia, prepare to be in constant awe of the crystal clear glacial lakes, tall mountain ranges, and the quaint Colonia Suiza- the first European settlement in the region. 

      We are thrilled about our 2023 trip to Argentina and we can't wait to share this incredible country with our Heart of Travel family. Keep scrolling to view the complete itinerary.

      Day 1
      Welcome to Argentina!

      Upon arriving at the airport,  your Program Director, Pamela Aguilar, will be waiting to greet you. She will then accompany you to your accommodation to get settled and give you a brief orientation of the area. 

      Once everyone has arrived, we’ll head over to a family welcome dinner in which we’ll experience a typical Argentinian evening. Between conversations, anecdotes, and experiences being shared, we’ll enjoy an authentic Argentina meal as we taste empanadas, an array of local cuts of meat and vegetables on the grill, and local wines. 

      You'll have an unforgettable evening becoming part of an Argentine family descended from Italian immigrants that are passionate about traveling and sharing experiences with people from all over the world. This particular family is so inspired by travelers that they opened their beautiful home in San Isidro, one of the most beautiful residential neighborhoods in Buenos Aires, for guests to come to share great food, delicious wine, and amazing conversation.

      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.


      Peru is a country of many different types of terrain and experiences. Dune buggy rides in the sand dunes, boating to the floating islands on lake Titicaca, visiting the salt mountains and, of course, hiking up to Manchu Picchu gave us a great sample of what the country has to offer. The cities are also full of friendly people and lively activities and, with the help of our wonderful guides, Eimy and Wilmer, we were able to enjoy our adventures even more! Emmy was so very helpful in recovering a phone lost by one of our fellow travelers and Wilmer was one of the best local guides we’ve ever had. It’s a “not to be missed trip” if you can make it and certainly one of my best.

      It has taken me a while to write this but I wanted to tell everyone what a great trip we had. The highlights for me were the “fairy forest” with the incredible collection of orchids, the fun times at the coffee plantation and making chocolate bars at the incredible site of the farm. The colorful town of Guatape and the lodgings on the lake were also some of the incredible sites. Lots of other fun things too numerous to mention and, of course, all made easy by our great HoT guides, Pam and Eimy. The local guides are always so knowledgeable and informative some are and even stand-comics! I highly recommend this trip for anyone who is interested in seeing what Colombia has become.

      The Heart of Travel team was exceptional. Arrangements were confirmed and drivers were always where we expected to find them. Made travels to Guatemala comfortable and relaxing.

      I just returned from a two week trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos. The trip was an incredible balance of learning, discovery, and recreation. Both the local guides and the Heart of Travel coordinator, Chiva, were excellent!!! The accommodations, food, and itinerary were fantastic. I will definitely travel with Heart of Travel again.

      I just completed the Oaxaca 2022 Did de Muertos Trip with Heart of Travel and it was amazing. Such a surreal and gratifying experience. Learned so much in regards to the culture and celebrations and customs of the local people and enjoyed learning about their traditions. Heart of Travel made this entire experience so enjoyable and well rounded with cultural immersion experiences. Great accommodation choices and knowledgeable local guides. Their use of local guides to share their knowledge and love for their traditions and home is a great learning experience. I have partake in several of their trips and would highly recommend not only this trip but any they have to offer. They defintiley take care of you. Would travel with them again!!

      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.
