WHAT WE DO

WHO WE ARE The Traveler’s Gift was created to provide you the opportunity to not only see the world, but to make a difference in it. We make it possible for you to travel to the places that you have always dreamed about while experiencing ways in which to purposefully make a difference in the lives of the needy around the globe. Our goal is to provide you with a complete travel service allowing you to have the adventure of a lifetime that is exciting, comfortable, worryfree, and full of unforgettable life changing experiences. We truly combine luxury and purpose in a way you won’t find anywhere else!

We partner with local charities to provide hands-on experiences that you will cherish long after your journey is over. Our travelers have the opportunity to serve in local communities in a variety of ways, such as interacting with kids in local orphanages, volunteering in soup kitchens that feed hundreds of families, teaching children how to cook, leading arts and crafts activities in community centers located in the poorest of neighborhoods, encouraging and empowering battered women, distributing life saving blankets in remote villages, and the list goes on.

HOW WE DO IT When you decide to join us on one of our inspiring journeys, we provide you with an itinerary consisting of many activities to choose from. You can custom design your own vacation and confidently leave all the details to us as we design a trip that ensures you experience all you imagine and reflects your personal interests! In addition, we allow plenty of free time so that you can do your own exploring, shopping, or relaxing. Our approach provides personalized service to enjoy selective activities that will meet each traveler’s unique desires. We go beyond what is expected as we know the details make the difference. Looking back on your Travelers Gift vacation should be a highlight of your life!

Spectacular country, wonderful accomodations and fantastic itinerary. Highlight was sharing gifts and our time with the children at the orphanage and soup kitchen, the love and smiles shared with them is indescribable and unforgettable, one of my best memories ever. Maria C., Miami, Fl, Argentina Traveler, May 2009


ARGENTINA Full of romance and passion, Buenos Aires is considered the “Paris” of the Americas. Enjoy the heartbeat of this beautiful city as you tour the sights, dance the tango, savor the delicious cuisine, play with children in a local orphanage, and fall in love with its people. Contrasting with the vibrant energy of Buenos Aires is the relaxing atmosphere of Mendoza. Sip the many award wining wines of the region as you unwind amongst the idyllic vineyards, breathe in the beauty of your surroundings in the quiet of your luxurious accommodation, and feel the sun smile down on you as you raft along the river. Whether you desire thrilling adventure, relaxation, or a combination of both, Argentina will exceed your expectations! It will be an understatement when you return home and say, “This is a better trip than I could have ever imagined!”
