“5 Stars only because they don’t allow 6”
We spent 3 weeks traveling from Buenos Aires to Iguazu Falls, to Salta, to Mendoza and back to Buenos Aires. Guides, excursions, hotels, and in- country flights we all arranged by Jan. Each segment of the trip was flawless. The guides were friendly and professional and always on time. The excursions were well planned and not jammed together, allowing us time to explore on our own. The hotels selected by the company were excellent and always well located. While each day had a planned activity, we always had enough personal time on our own to experience the environment we were in. We could not have been more pleased with our choice of Heart of Argentina Travel and highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great experience while traveling to Argentina. 5 Stars only because they don’t allow 6!

“More than a holiday! An adventure”
Jan and Lis of Heart of Argentina created such an amazing experience for us. More than a holiday! an adventure, but an adventure with the feeling of total support from Jan and the team. From the outset Jan tailored or journey with forethought and consideration for our ideas. The itinerary he created was perfect. Careful thought for the right number of days in different places for distances to cover between stops and a diverse range of hotels and accommodation which were always exciting to find! Jan stayed in touch, checking in on our progress which was so reassuring and special. We both wholeheartedly recommend Heart of Argentina Travel and the brilliant trip they choreographed for us. All the excitement of discovering uncharted landscapes with the added reassurance that we had support and genuine concern that we were having the best experience a trip can offer.

“All together an excellent trip!”
We have made a fantastic tour through the Northwest of Argentina and the unspoiled part of the Argentinean Puna, all organized by Lis & Jan. Everything was well arranged, beautiful accommodations and Jan kept in touch during the trip via Whatsapp and send us useful recommendations for routes and restaurants. All together an excellent trip!”

“For everybody who wants the best full portion services ever dreamed of!”
We made a three week tailored journey to Argentina and Chile in Sept-Oct 2019, having more than ten targets. All communication with Heart of Argentina Travel worked swift and properly, so did all the arrangements with fully professional partners. Because that many phases, accuracy in transports was the key issue. We can’t say the tour was cheap, but Jan and Lis had’nt more than two months time to make all the arrangements to three countries and all the details worked properly. With special interest in bird watching and nature, we visited the Esteros del Iberá wetlands, the Sierras de Córdoba, Mendoza (crossing the Andes at the Aconcagua), Santiago de Chile and Puerto Varas (Chile), where we combined the Chilean and Argentinean lake districts. We ended our trip in Colonia – Uruguay. We are very happy with our complete trip, we highly recommend Heart of Argentina Travel for everybody who likes to get the best full portion experiences ever dreamed of.

“Our group of 8 loved Argentina & the excellent services of Heart of Argentina Travel; we think it was our best adventure so far – *****”
Heart of Argentina Travel is a trustful and very friendly travel agency, which will help you live the best experiences in Argentina. Our group of 8 travels every year to a different destination anywhere in the world. This time we loved our Spring Break Trip 2019 in Argentina, we actually think it is our best adventure so far. The delicious food, the incredible landscapes, the guides and the people, everyone was very helpful and easy to communicate with. We strongly recommend this agency, 5 out 5 stars. Thank you Jan and Lis!

“A fantastic and diverse trip which we all enjoyed fully!”
With our two grown up children we have had the honour to travel one month in beautiful Argentina. Because it was our first trip to South America we chose to use the help from Lis & Jan (Heart of Argentina Travel). They organized a 100% custom made travel experience for our trip; an excellent and diverse trip which we all enjoyed fully. Fascinating Buenos Aires, the beauty of Salta & Cafayate, the breathtaking landscapes of the Puna, the jungle of Iguazú, the amazing Esteros del Iberá wetlands and back to BA…..it was a great mix of experiences: city life, wildlife, culture, food, sports, wine and hospitality. Lis & Jan, you made our dream trip come true, thank you very much for the great care, before, during and after the trip!

“Highly recommended for an individualized travel 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 road trip 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 recommended for people who want an individualized experience!

“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!

“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 organized. Once again thanks so much for making another great vacation!

“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!

“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.

“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 the website of Lis & Jan 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.

“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.

“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.

“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.

“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 organized 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.

“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.

“Heart of Argentina Travel left really nothing to improve”
We are very satisfied with all you organized 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.

“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 organize 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 perfectly 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.
