Nine Muses Travel
Danielle Dybiec has been a New Yorker since attending CUNY Brooklyn College for her MFA degree in Performing Arts Management. Building on an exciting career in the arts, she transitioned to working in luxury travel in 2013 to design and operate bespoke, art-filled group trips, then joined Tauck as a North America Product Manager to refresh a third of their domestic itineraries. In Summer 2018, she founded Nine Muses Travel, joined with host agency Gifted Travel Network, and signed up for their Travel MBA program, which won a 2019 Magellan Gold Award.
Dybiec saw a need for a travel company led by someone who’s both an arts and tourism professional, a trusted expert fluent in both languages who can provide uniquely insightful travel services focusing on authentic cultural experiences, arts, history, and cuisine. She’s passionate about the arts and travel because they take you outside your comfort zones and expose you to new worlds, new perspectives, and new voices, and you return changed, with a deeper understanding of your place in this world. For Nine Muses Travel, arts and travel aren’t frivolous. They’re essential.
