What is Inspired Diversions?
When we first started in 2006, Inspired Diversions seemed a fitting name. To us, a trip to Europe can be more than a series of sightseeing stops. It's a chance to be inspired by the history, culture and arts of Europe, a wonderful diversion from everyday life.

We work with clients who wish to travel beautifully: stay in delightful hotels, eat well and explore the historic and cultural treasures of Europe.

Inspired Diversions is a full-service travel company and a registered and licensed Seller of Travel CA 2110172-40.

We build your trip from scratch based on your wants and needs as opposed to simply offering a pre-arranged, standard package. You are not limited to certain dates, certain hotels, or tour providers. Rather, we provide travel recommendations across the full spectrum of options available in order to make the best recommendations for you.

Let us know your preferences and how you envision your trip to be.
