About Me

My name is Diana Zilioli and I have a Ph.D. in Environmental Sciences. For many years, the job of scientific researcher gave me the opportunity to satisfy my insatiable curiosity, to have unique experiences, to understand other cultures and to intellectually enrich myself. Over the years, my travel from one place to another accompanied by children, dogs, family, friends, colleagues and acquaintances has led me to face a series of incredible organizational challenges. This is how I discovered over time that my real passion is to share my journey through life with anyone who wants to follow me, because if it is beautiful to enjoy life, even more can be achieved with other people who like me are curious and insatiable for new adventures. I have discovered that I am very good at solving problems of any kind, very patient and serene in company and incredibly enthusiastic about everything I do. After living in Ecuador for a few years I moved to this country, where I decided to use my travelling experiences in my job and offer myself as a guide for an unique and tailor-made holiday to anyone who wants a different and authentic experience in Scotland, which surprises and leaves an indelible mark. I became a Blue Badge Tourist Guide, a very prestigious title in Great Britain, dedicating 2 long years exclusively to the study and the exploration of Scotland.
