      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.


      Fantastic, custom-designed trip for our extended family vacation to Ecuador. Chiva is an incredible guide and maybe the nicest person in the universe, as were Carla (in Quito and other parts of the mainland) and Kari (on Galápagos). They were each so knowledgeable, flexible, responsive, professional and also FUN! Gustavo was involved in supporting our trip but unfortunately we only saw him briefly at the airport. Great drivers and other help from the extended team at Heart, even with questions about our flights home - absolutely above and beyond service. We learned so much, were inspired by amazing people and places, and had such a great time! This was our third trip with Heart and I'm already looking forward to the next one. THANK YOU CHELSEA AND TEAM!!!

      Nice shuttle ride to and from Lake Atitlán. Would recommend using Heart of Travel for transport needs. Well organized and good communication start to finish.

      This trip was well organized and offered a good look at realities of living in Cuba with the ongoing embargo of the country. The guides were knowledgeable, fun loving, and aided us in exploration of Cuba. I enjoyed the contrast of Havana and the Vinales valley. Our accommodations were good, the food we had was yummy, and all of this exceeded my expectations. I had needed a little help due to a foot injury and rather than cancel my trip I notified Chelsea. She set up an ox cart ride for me to save me from a walk and a carriage ride rather than riding a horse myself. The efforts to help me surpassed my expectations. I feel fortunate that the description of the trip attracted a great group of fellow travelers. This added to our experience in unexpected ways. Thank you for this eye opening opportunity to explore Cuba.

      The transportation coordination and services were excellent! We had a lot of modifications due to last minute change of plans and Heart of Travel could not have been more accommodating and gracious. Appreciate their professionalism and wouldn't hesitate to use them again!

      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.
