Our Mission

We just so happen to believe that the best experiences occur with a plane ticket in hand—like rolling gnocchi in a Tuscan farmhouse kitchen, sipping a spritz as you sail past a sun-drenched island, or teeing off on a designer course balanced on a dramatic cliff’s edge.

Immersive travel experiences have the unique ability to break down barriers and encourage engagement—across all ages, backgrounds, languages, and cultures. When you travel together, you know you’ve made a friend for life. We’re not just travel designers; we’re relationship builders, as we bring your favorite people together on travel experiences that forge connections, foster community, and leave you with memories that recall life’s best times for years to come.

At King Travel Design, we bring people together for life’s best experiences.

For Life’s Best Experiences


Hi, I’m Deana King! 

I’m the food & wine-loving, party-hosting, adventure-seeking travel advisor ready to make your next group trip an absolutely effortless experience. As much fun as I have planning travel, designing group escapes is serious business—my goal with King Travel Design is to take the complicated logistics off your shoulders and leave all the fun to you.

My Story

For me, groups + travel are a natural fit. All of my favorite memories involve one of two things: being surrounded by the people I care about or exploring jaw-dropping destinations. The very best memories involve both!

From golfing in Ireland to cruising the Caribbean, living like locals with our close friends in the South of France to watching the most epic sunsets from our family beach home in Florida, a riot of clinking cocktails and cousins racing through the sand. The moments that will stay with me forever come from travel experiences that bring the people I cherish the most together. 

Sharing Life’s Best Experiences

Through King Travel Design, I want to do the same for you. Whether it’s your best customers or best friends, family members or club members, let’s bring together the people in your life who make life meaningful—on an unforgettable trip filled with laughter and connection.

After 30 years as a corporate executive (and working mom!) in the food and beverage industry I bring my passion for planning, my exceptional organizational skills, my strong work ethic, and my excitement for designing custom travel to exceed expectations in the planning process. I combine these elements with my collection of insider connections to deliver itineraries that bring vacations filled with luxury and laughter. So, let’s start planning your next great escape—with the people who matter most by your side.
