About us

Clay and Culture – Pottery and Ceramic Arts Tours is the fruit of a long-term collaboration and friendship between Dianne Turner, Ceramic Artist and Chris Riou, Travel Agent at Newport Travel.

Newport Travel has been successfully designing seemless, customised travel itineraries for its discerning, well-travelled clients since 1984.

Being an independent member agency of Travel Partners in the Flight Centre Travel Group, we have access to all the buying power and resources of the Flight Centre Travel Group without the restrictions of belonging to a franchise. This means that we are able to deliver to you, unique and quality itineraries with excellent value.

The itineraries for pottery and ceramic arts lovers that we have crafted and personally tested over the years with Dianne Turner are reflective of that quality and value.

All Clay and Culture hosted tours and cruises are co-led by both Dianne Turner and Chris Riou so that you benefit from the expertise of both a professional tour manager and a tour theme specialist.

For all our independent tour and cruise packages with local guides, you can be sure that your package has been well-researched and crafted with the greatest care for a stress-free private tour customised to your requirements.

We look forward to welcoming you soon on a Clay and Culture tour or cruise for the holiday of a lifetime!

Chris and Dianne
