    I heard that you have taken a trip recently.

    Both are correct, but they aren't the same.

    So...

    A : Wow, Long time no see.

    B : Oh, I heard that you have taken a trip recently. Please, talk to me about that.


    or


    B : Oh, I heard that you had taken a trip. Please, talk to me about that.
