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.

When it comes to itchy feet, Aaron's have barely touched the ground! While his early years were spent on the picturesque coastline of Whangaparaoa in New Zealand, he's spent the last 20 years globetrotting, calling the UK, Thailand, Vietnam, China, Turkey and Egypt home.
Having come from New Zealand, it's no surprise that his first love is getting into the outdoors. A keen diver, Aaron's gallivanted beneath the waves with Whale Sharks in Borneo, Philippines and Zanzibar, and even dived from a converted oil rig in Sipidan, while back on dry land, he counts trekking the highlands of Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia/Papua, and participating in a mountain bike marathon in Vietnam as just a few of his adventures.
His second love? Rugby of course! In fact, he spent 7 weeks back home following the All Blacks at the Rugby World Cup in 2011 and returned for the British & Irish Lions tour in 2017. Safe to say, he's more than a little excited for Japan 2019!
With all that activity, it's important to keep his strength up, and he has come a long way from a previous life tasting crisps and sandwiches for a living - whether it's Bun Thit Nuong in Vietnam or Khao Soi in Laos, Aaron wastes no time getting to know the food scenes (although does occasionally yearn for New Zealand's green-lipped mussels...)
Having led tours throughout Southeast Asia, China, Japan, Fiji, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Egypt, and Eastern Europe, as well as working in a Product role in Indochina, Aaron's knowledge, skills and stories make every Southeast Asia Small Group Tour special.
