Diane Rawlings

Diane has spent an amazing 40 years in the travel industry yet still thrives on the excitement of travel and the satisfaction of seeing her clients discover new destinations and revisit old favourites.

Diane’s personal travel passions focus on the great cities of the world and a love of arts, culture, food and wine. However she is just at home in New York, Paris, Prague or Hong Kong as she is sailing on theMediterranean, in an igloo in Lapland or luxury tented camp in Kenya.  Her more recent travels have seen her camel riding in Morocco, vodka tasting in Russia, learning the Highland fling inEdinburgh and marvelling at the magnitude of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janiero.

Above all Diane is a great listener and travel designer.  She turns dreams into reality, taking the big plans and breaking them down into the fine detail that is so essential for inspiring trips and memories that will last forever.
