HOW DO PRIVATE TRIPS WORK?


1. First, you’ll fill out and submit the brief questionnaire found here. It’s ok if you don’t have all of the answers, we can figure them out together on our first call. However, the more information you can provide us with in advance the faster we can narrow things down to meet your specific needs and interests. 

2. After we’ve reviewed your questionnaire we will set up a time for our call. During this call, we will go over all of your answers, address any questions you have and chat openly to get a better understanding of your travel style and preferences. 

3. Within 5 business days from our initial, we will reach out to you via email with a proposed itinerary and budget for your trip based on the details provided in your questionnaire and during our call. Upon reviewing our proposal you’re welcome to request any edits or changes which we are happy to discuss via email, Whatsapp or phone/video call. 

4. We will get back to you with an updated itinerary and budget based on your feedback and we can continue making changes until we have all the details just right for you.

5. Once you’ve given us final approval on the itinerary and budget we will send you an invoice with the option to pay online or via check in the mail. Upon receiving your first installment we will finalize all of the reservations discussed.

6. Leading up to your trip we will be available to answer any and all questions that may come up. In the event you want to make small tweaks to the itinerary we are more than happy to do whenever possible. As we get closer to your departure date you will be provided with the following:

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.

Prompt service. Excellent driver and comfortable ride. Heart of Travel made my arrival from Guatemala City to Antigua very enjoyable. I would highly recommend their services.
This was my second trip with Heart of Travel and it was perfect in every way. The Parque Hotel was beautiful and in a wonderful location. Dylan and Daniel were the best guides and Allie—an added bonus— The Heart of Travel’s photographer. Daniel, the local guide, is so knowledgeable that you will learn so much from him. Dylan also. The Restaurant’s Chelsea picked were all different and wonderful. Lisa, our food tour guide, gave us the best experience at The Market we went to. I loved Mexico City and I look forward to my next journey with Heart of Travel—where ever that may be. Thank you Everyone who made this trip so perfect and memorable. CRP
Even though I speak Fair Spanish, I was a little intimidated to tour Mexico City on my own, given the size and complexity of getting around. Our tour guide showed us the best of Mexico City, with no hassles.

Fun, Fun, Fun! We traveled with The Heart of Travel, our favorite for Spanish-speaking destinations. We had a perfect mix of history, culture, learning, sharing, and food and drink. Día de los Muertos at the cemetery was very special. Our accommodation at an AirB&B was perfect for our group. Our local guide, Gabo, and Heart of Travel guide, Ana, are the best.

This was the best trip to Mexico we have ever been on. If you didn't go to Puerto Escondido as an add on, you missed a very relaxing 4 night side trip, to a very friendly small town.
