Our team at InsideAsia Tours
The sun never sets on the InsideAsia Tours team (well, maybe on Sundays) and here you can meet the people behind our Southeast Asian tours and holidays.
We have a wide range of backgrounds and interests, but you can be sure that the one thing that ties us all together is a love of travel, foreign cultures and a passionate desire to share that with other people.
From the accounts department, through the travel consultant teams to the tour leaders and guides on the ground, you can rest assured that everything we do is to make sure you have the best possible experience in Asia.
Ater seven months exploring Southeast Asia, Chris dedicated seven years to becoming an Asia expert.
With a love of climbing, hiking, kayaking, snorkelling, diving and, of course, travel, Chris was almost destined to study Adventure Tourism Management.
