“Highly recommended for people who want an individualized experience!”

We had never used a travel agent before finding Heart of Argentina travel for our 2 week trip in January 2019. We had an idea of where we wanted to go (Buenos Aires, Patagonia, the lake region, and Salta), and they helped us string it all together and create an itinerary with great suggestions and lovely local hotels that we would not have found otherwise. Our trip took us from a glacier on New Years Eve to the high desert wine country. A highlight was a roadtrip through Salta province – Cachi and Cafayate. Jan was very helpful beforehand, answering all our questions, but during the trip everything unfolded without a hitch. Highly recommend for people who want an individualized experience! Bonnie, NY, USA – January 2019

“We would recommend Heart of Argentina travel both for price and for a great itinerary”

Our 10 day trip in the Puna was truly an adventure to one of the earth’s wild and beautiful places. Jan found us a knowledgeable and friendly English speaking guide who drove us over hill and dale safely and he also provided a running commentary on the history and geology of the region. I would recommend Heart of Argentina travel both for price and for a great itinerary! Robin & Robert, Seattle – USA

“As usual your organisation was faultless” – quote by repeating customers!

Trip was really great – again. You will know the hotels and so when I say they were all really good you won’t be surprised. At each, the staff were really helpful and were very patient with our attempts at Spanish – even though most spoke excellent English. As usual your organisation was faultless. The excursions were all really good, especially the ones in El Calafate are very professionally organised. Once again thanks so much for making another great vacation! Stuart & Anne from the UK

“Private excursion in Salta & Jujuy was simply fantastic, with a very knowledgeable guide”

Dear Jan and Lis, we would like to thank you for having made a very nice and well functioning programme for us: whether it was the facility of changing money in Buenos Aires, the nice hotels in Salta and Iguaçu or the fantastic private excursion with your guide in Salta and Jujuy. The guide was an amazing acquaintance. He is very knowledgeable, has a super personality and is very easy to spend time with. He also provides very pleasant and secure driving. The hotels during the excursion were also very nice. As you can see, we were very pleased, and will definitively recommend that friends contact you for organising trips in Argentina in the future. All the best, Henrik & Margrit , Copenhagen, Denmark

“We are completely satisfied with your service”

Dear Lis and Jan: we had a fantastic trip! We very much enjoyed Argentina and are completely satisfied with your service. We absolutely would and will recommend you to any one who is going the Argentina! Laura and Shep, California, USA

“We felt that we got a lot of value”

The trip was in a word, wonderful. We had a very good guide. He was friendly, knowledgeable, attentive without being intrusive, enjoyable to be with and easy going. We felt that we got a lot of value and learned a lot about this region of Argentina. The guide shared some special places with us, and took us to many different places. Special highlights were the rock formations around Cafayate, the beautiful nature everywhere, Colomé winery, Molinos and Cachi. John, Carolyn and friends, USA

“Everything was done to make our trip relaxed and stress free”

We have just returned from a five week holiday in Argentina organized for us by Heart of Argentina Travel. We had spent several months trying to decide what to do and where to go and were getting very confused, although we had decided that we were going to stay in the North of Argentina. Luckily we stumbled on Jan and Lis´s website and having contacted them on Skype they suggested a drive between Salta, Mendoza and Cordoba and the rest was easy. They booked all our hotels, all good and well located and some just brilliant. We would never have found them ourselves. They also booked the car for us and organized airport transfers. They organized a guide for us in Buenos Aires, something we would never have thought of doing ourselves, but well worth it as he was interesting and good company and gave us useful local information. Everything was done to make our trip relaxed and stress free. Added to which they were in contact with us almost everyday to make sure things were going OK. We couldn’t have been better looked after. We couldn’t recommend Jan and Lis too highly. Anne and Stuart

“Recommended to anyone who wants a special, custom made trip to anywhere in Argentina”

I made the decision to use Jan and Liz after reading about them on Tripadvisor. I couldn’t have been happier. They arranged a 9 day trip to Buenos Aires and Iguazu Falls for my husband and I and our two twenty-something sons. We stayed in very unique hotels and had fantastic guides – all arranged by Jan and Liz. We Skyped with them several times before the trip and they checked in with us every day to make sure all was going well. Any “hiccups” (which were very minor) were solved immediately by them. All the recommendations they made were great – I felt well taken care of and knew that they cared tremendously about providing us with great service. They are the type of people that make you feel like a friend – I would recommend them to anyone who wants a special, custom trip to anywhere in Argentina. Beth (Atlanta, USA)

“We have been able to fully enjoy our holidays in Argentina”

Thanks to the excellent support of Jan and Lis from Heart of Argentina Travel we have been able to fully enjoy our holidays in Argentina, which is a beautiful country! Besides the well known highlights like the Perito Moreno glacier and the falls of Iguazu the country offers amazing natural landscapes and interesting cities. Because Argentina is no mass tourism destination, you can experience all the beauty in a relaxed way. Jan and Lis offered us a fine selection of accommodations, many times small boutique hotels with a personal touch. During our 5 week trip they contacted us on a frequent basis to see if everything was running smoothly. Therefore we highly recommend other travellers to use the perfect and personal service of Jan and Lis.  Cathy & Ronald (Leiden, The Netherlands)

“Good personal service and back-up. Definitely recommended”

We used Heart of Argentina Travel to organize a 3 week trip around Argentina. We are normally very independent travelers, but after much thought we handed it to Heart of Argentina Travel. They organized a great trip for us – particularly arranging interesting stays in boutique hotels that we would never have found on our own. Everything ran very smoothly and we were delighted to meet them in person at the end of our trip. Good personal service and back-up. Definitely recommended. John (London, UK)

“This is a trip we will remember for the rest of our lives”

My son Marks and I just returned to USA after 10 days in Argentina and organised several tours via Heart of Argentina Travel. I would rate this trip as one of our best ever and something I will long cherish and remember. We saw a great deal in the limited time we had. And we had superb guides everywhere! Marks and I thank Heart of Argentina from the bottom of OUR Hearts. This is a trip we will remember for the rest of our lives. Thank you so so much. Dace & Marks (Virgina, USA)

“Heart of Argentina Travel has been able to give Argentina a very special place in our hearts”

Together with a befriended couple we have been traveling three weeks through the Argentinean part of Patagonia and we want to advise everyone who is looking for a good prepared, tailor made and nicely accompanied trip to get in touch with Heart of Argentina Travel. Jan and Elisabet are very committed during the preparations of the trip, they were thinking along with us in a very professional and practical way. They turned our wishes and plans into a splendid travel itinerary. Looking back the trip has been a “monument” in our life. Moreover, Jan and Lis also constantly checked during the trip the status of the agreements made, if we were very satisfied with the hotels, drivers, private guides, rental cars, etc. Heart of Argentina Travel has been able to give Argentina a very special place in our hearts. Pauline & Bas Nieuwenhuizen-Berkovits (The Hague, The Netherlands)

“Heart of Argentina Travel left really nothing to improve”

We are very satisfied with all you organised so good for us during our 10 day private excursion through the Northwest of Argentina (from Mendoza to Jujuy). The guide and driver were a perfect couple, very kind, always helpful, reading wishes from our mind and flexible. The tour always was safe, although the road conditions were sometimes problematic. So there really was nothing to improve. The guide knew so much about everything and could tell us a lot about landscape, culture and people of this region of Argentina. The accommodations you choose were nice and good, some of them simply perfect. Let me tell you that we all have learned to love Argentina. Very friendly people. Of course we will all recommend Heart of Argentina Travel without any restrictions to our family and friends. Dr. R. Huebner and friends (8 persons, Germany)

“They organised an excellent trip for us”

Recently we went 3 weeks on holiday in Argentina. Jan and Lis organised an excellent trip for us. To give an example: we went 4 days on a private excursion with an English speaking guide in the South of Salta. From the first moment the guide, Juan, seemed to understand exactly what we wanted, so we have made many light hikes with him during the excursion. We talked, laughed, hiked, ate 4 days long. He was also very polite and always asked us if we had enough water, if we ate enough, if we had no difficulties with the height, etc. Because of him this excursion was a real success. Also the accommodations during the excursion brought a smile on our faces: from a luxurious hotel with swimming pool and sauna to a traditional and cosy family house turned into a hotel. What we also appreciated very much during our holidays was the personal attention of Jan and Lis. This way you feel really welcome and do never have the idea you are being left alone in this big and beautiful country. Family Broeders (Drenthe, The Netherlands)

“Their personal service and commitment before, during and after the trip was really outstanding”

We are a family of five (the two parents and three kids of 15, 13 and 10 years old) and we really enjoyed our holidays in Argentina. During 3 weeks in July we traveled around and we felt like being at home. The people are very friendly, curious and helpful. Even without being able to speak Spanish we were managing. And for those who don´t know it yet: winter time in Argentina is not so bad to travel around, the weather is mild and the sun shines all the time (dry season), only the nights can be really cold. The complete trip was organized by Jan & Lis of Heart of Argentina Travel. Their personal service and commitment before, during and after the trip was really outstanding. During the trip they were all the time available to help us out in case of problems. The really organized this trip very well for us and we highly recommend them.

“The fact that they live in Argentina makes it possible to help you on the spot”

I have very good experiences with Heart of Argentina Travel. I had them plan my three weeks round trip through Argentina and was pleasantly surprised by all the interesting accommodations where I spend the night. Lodging varied from a comfortable bed & breakfast with a very sweet and service minded hostess to a private house of a rich family which was redesigned into a classical hotel. The round trip was the most beautiful holiday I ever had. Besides, the fact that they are living in Argentina makes it possible to help you on the spot. When someone robbed my wallet in Buenos Aires, they helped me directly in the most practical way. Highly recommended: Heart of Argentina Travel. Klaas (Rotterdam, The Netherlands)

“Their service was fully professional”

What do you do if you already have planned a holiday to Argentina, but have no time to organise it yourself? Some searching in Google and find out what the possibilities are. Fortunately we got in contact with Heart of Argentina Travel, a local travel organization run by the Dutch/Argentinean couple Jan & Lis. We had a rough idea what we wanted to see and visit, they just did the rest and booked great accommodations, some private excursions and car rental. Their service was fully professional, the prefectly translated our wishes into a fantastic holiday. Furthermore it was good to know that they were really interested in our experiences during the trip, if we liked the accommodations, if we liked the guide, etc. We also thought it was very comfortable to know that they live in Argentina and are always to help you out during the course of the trip. A special recommendation we like to make for the guide in Salta, a real professional and very good company. Pieter-Marc & Randi (Zeeland, The Netherlands)

“Planning your trip like this offers a huge added value”

It is amazing that nowadays with the Internet you can find fantastic small travel agencies everywhere. Because of that you are much more free and not obliged to use the bigger travel organizations. Many times they are expensive, much less personal and none of them can give you the tailor made service which you can get at smaller agencies. We have traveled three weeks in Argentina and let our personal travel preferences be planned by Jan & Lis of Heart of Argentina Travel. They organized beautiful accommodations for us, gave very good advices on how to plan our trip and of course used their own personal experiences with Argentina, which we could make use of. It has been an excellent private round trip by car through Argentina. What a beautiful country! At the end of the trip we had a great night at the house of Jan & Lis in Córdoba, with some good empanadas and nice chats about traveling and life. This again confirmed us that planning your round trip like this offers a huge added value! Thanks Jan & Lis. Frits & Ingrid (Amsterdam, The Netherlands)

“We can fully imagine your passion for Argentina, what a beautiful country!”

We really enjoyed our private excursions & the accommodation you organized for us in Mendoza. The guide was really fantastic, she was kind, well educated and spoke very good English. We really thought she was an excellent guide. The nature in Mendoza and its environment is spectacular. Some details: the organization of the excursion was punctual, we had a beautiful car at our disposition and the guide took care of all the catering. We really enjoyed it and can fully imagine your passion for Argentina, what a beautiful country!
