BANGKOK - Diethelm Travel Group, an award-winning inbound tour operator servicing Asia, is celebrating its 60th anniversary of offering discerning travellers unforgettable Journeys of a Lifetime. The company officially turned 60 on 2 April and marked the occasion with festive celebrations in all regional offices on 3 April.
"It's been wonderful to experience all the celebrations - in person and in spirit - around Asia and see the passion our staff has for Diethelm Travel," said Lisa Fitzell, Group Managing Director of Diethelm Travel. "Diethelm is dedicated to serving our clients with the most innovative Asia travel products, resources and services, all of which would not be possible without such a committed and creative team - a number of our staff have been with the company for decades!"
Now recognised as one of Asia's leading tour operators, Diethelm Travel was originally established in 1957 in Bangkok and cultivated a long-lasting, trusted reputation within the country and with the Thai royal family. The company has been received a royal warrant of appointment from the late King Rama IX, one of the highest honours in Thailand, recognising the business for significantly supporting the country's economic and social development. In 1991, Diethelm expanded internationally with an office in Vientiane, Laos, and has since continued to use its strong local connections and expertise to further grow, now boasting more than 3,300 custom tours in 12 countries that emphasise authentic experiences.
"While we're tremendously proud of what we've accomplished during our 60 years of service, we're still devoted to continually providing unique new experiences and services for agents and travellers," added Fitzell. "By using our decades of on-the-ground experience, relationships and intimate regional understanding, combined with a never ending desire for discovery and progress, 2017 is set to be our greatest year yet."
