Rani Cheema

New York, New York Travel Agent

Culinary Travel Specialist

Hello! I'm Rani Cheema of Cheema's Travel. I'm a CEO, culinary travel specialist, foodie, and unshakable optimist dedicated to helping you create your dream gastronomic adventure. Whether you're a foodie, eater, chef, sommelier, baker, or drink maker, I'm here to make your travel planning a stress free process. I went from designing posters for Broadway shows to being an art director at the Food Network. Now I design dreamy food-centric ones vacations. My mission is to inspire everyone to see, meet, and taste their home, Earth. I believe that the ability to travel is a human right. Luxury is about gaining access to parts of the world or “unlocking” doors that are closed to the public and having truly remarkable experiences.
