When entrepreneurs Deb Niven and Allison Frame teamed up they brought together a collective 50 years of travel experience. The result is a unique travel company dedicated to exploring the world through one-of-a-kind tours. Luxury, spirituality and adventure come together on a trip from The Divine Destination Collection. You might be connecting with nature and the land in South Africa or cleansing yourself in a temazcal - a traditional Mexican steam bath. Or imagine the thrill of riding the 1920’s Hiram Bingham train in Peru. These tours place you in the company of like-minded people who share a passion for travel. You may even have influenced the detail of the trip itself, so that it reflects your own special interests.
The Divine Destination Collection provides small group trips with the perfect balance of very special organized experiences coupled with personal leisure time. Founders Deb and Allison accompany their guests on every trip they organize - as hosts, their care and attention to detail guarantees an impeccable travel experience where all your needs are looked after.
The Divine Destination Collection, as you might expect, assembles a carefully curated set of tours to some fabulous destinations. South Africa, Peru, Mexico, Arizona and Muskoka are all favourites - and coming down the line are some exciting ideas such as Belize, Bali and European gems such as the South of France, Scotland and the El Camino de Santiago in Northern Spain.
Each destination has its own characteristic spirit that only reveals itself to someone with accumulated years of local insider knowledge and travel expertise. Deb and Allison design unique, behind-the-scenes experiences that most people would never find or be able to arrange on their own. And there are always a few surprises built in as well!
Guests have the option to sign up and do nothing more than pack their bags and enjoy the experience with Deb and Allison at the helm. Or, for those that like to explore behind the scenes, and who may be excited to influence future destination choices and trip experiences, there is the Divine-by-Design Travel Advisory Board. This way the adventure begins long before the trip departs and there are many benefits that come from sharing your thoughts.
Travel Advisory Board Members are invited to three entertaining pre-events right at the early stages of planning a tour:
Divine-by-Design Discovery Event
Meet, mingle and share a glass of wine with other curious travel aficionados. Deb and Allison present an overview of destinations under consideration for design or redesign in the coming year. At the Discovery Event you’ll vote on the shortlist of destinations and you can select the trip (or trips) you’d like to advise on.
Destination Design Session
Deb and Allison host a more intimate Design Session where Members provide insight and feedback on a variety of options to create the best possible experience.
For example, choose between a private cooking class with a well-known chef and a session with a Horse Whisperer. Would you rather take over a local hacienda for an afternoon or go spelunking in an underground cave? Or both? Would you prefer more leisure time to relax or more planned activities to explore the area?
Destination Reveal Session
Based on suggestions from the Travel Advisory Board team, Allison and Deb host a final reveal session for the specific destination. The complete travel experience is unveiled and Members hear first-hand about the inclusions and accommodations, as well as travel dates and pricing. Members get “first dibs” to book the trip before it is announced to the public, since each Divine Destination Collection trip is designed for small groups and the number of participants is limited. Importantly, Travel Advisory Board Members receive a 10% trip discount for themselves and a companion.

When you book a tour with The Divine Destination Collection the flights are not included as travellers may prefer to use points or book their own flights. However, in keeping with the concept of taking care of every detail - help is available with booking flights, airport lounge upgrades, transfers to your hotel, extended stays pre and post-trip and more. The Divine Destination Collections’ Luxury Experience Concierge can take care of all these details for you. Even better, Travel Advisory Board Members earn a service credit.
