All of our group tour itineraries are very dynamic, striking a balance between seeing the major points of interest and enjoying the subtleties of everyday life in your temporary new home. While no two destinations are the same most of our tours incorporate the following types of activities:
We totally get it, it’s not for everyone. If you’re on the fence we would highly recommend you give group travel with Heart of Travel a shot. However, if you know for sure you’d rather do your own thing we can still help to make your travel dreams become a reality with either our travel consulting or private trip services!
Having traveled rather independently ourselves it wasn’t until we began guiding group tours that we fully understood the many advantages of group travel. Over the years we’ve fallen in love with group travel and found that it offers the following advantages:
Our tours are open to anybody over the age of 18 regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, age, socioeconomic status, etc. We have had people from all walks of life join us on trips and we welcome diversity of all kinds on our tours.
We will accept teenagers on certain trips if they are traveling with a parent or guardian, however, the majority of our group travel itineraries are designed for adults, unless advertised as a family trip in which case it’s open to all ages as long as minors are accompanied by a parent or guardian.
While the consumption of alcohol is by no means the primary focus of our trips, nor is it required in order to participate, our itineraries can often include visits to learn about the production of local spirits and many travelers choose to indulge in responsible drinking. We are more than happy to arrange alternative activities during these times if desired for personal reasons or if you’re traveling with your teen and would prefer for them not to be involved in these activities.
There is no maximum age limit for our trips either and we’ve had clients in their 80’s enjoy trips with us. That being said, the trips do require a certain level of health and physical fitness so regardless of your age we encourage you to read the itinerary carefully to make sure you feel comfortable with the activities. If there is anything that concerns you, such as a volcano hike or a boat ride on the open water, please let us know as it’s likely something we can modify for you so that you can enjoy the rest of the trip!
We are also happy to accommodate any dietary restrictions or preferences. For those with medical conditions that require daily care or the safe transport and storage of temperature sensitive medications we ask that you please contact us to discuss. In many cases we can easily accommodate such needs on group tours, otherwise we’d be more than happy to create a private travel experience for you in order to tend to your specific needs.
Our goal is to help people travel and we will do whatever we can to make travel possible, easy safe, comfortable, educational and FUN!
