TRAVEL PHILOSOPHY
I never thought in terms of having a travel philosophy. But, I guess it would be to have fun, be open-minded, don't insulate yourself from local life and - very importantly - show humility and respect for the country you're visiting and the people who live there.

TRAVEL SPECIALTY
Bali, other islands of Indonesia, Malaysian Borneo

WHY KAANECT HAS ASKED BALI BARONG TOURS TO BE A PARTNER
Andrea and April have known Diane for over 10 years through being on the Conde Nast Traveler Top Travel Specialists list. Diane is kind, honest and passionate about Bali and the other islands of Indonesia. She has deep personal connections with the people she works with in the region, and plans travel in a sustainable and respectful manner - for the local communities and also for her clients. One of the things I’ve loved about working with Diane is that she’s not afraid to really break down the misconceptions about Bali and then build back up a trip that truly aligns with what your dream trip is. In sending past clients to Diane, the feedback from the on the ground experience has been phenomenal. We have a deep developed trust with Diane personally and professionally, and we’re honored to have her as a Kaanect Travel Partner.

ABOUT
My company is very small - just me. But, I have some wonderful partners in the areas in which I specialize. In Bali, I know all the guides and drivers personally and I've worked with the same local operator there for over 30 years. All the trips I arrange are custom-designed. So, clients aren't getting a cookie-cutter/brochure tour. Clients love the interaction with their guides and other locals. They love that the pace of the trip, the included activities and cultural experiences are based on their interests instead of someone else's interests. For people who want hands-on cultural experiences, they love that I can arrange unique experiences that aren't available to the vast majority of people who visit Bali. They love that I personally know wonderful boutique hotels and that they don't have to stay in generic western chain hotels.
