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.
As co-Director of InsideAsia Tours, Alastair oversees everything to do with IT, web, design and printed material for InsideVietnam.
Alastair's interest in Asia dates back to his university days, when he took a paper in modern Japanese history for his finals and found himself fascinated by the country's spectacular transformation from pre-industrial feudal society to the world's fourth-largest economy in little more than 30 years. Then, when an opportunity then arose to join his friend Simon out in Toyota City, he jumped at the chance - and the rest, as they say, is history.
After achieving great success with InsideJapan Tours, founded in the year 2000, Alastair and Simon made the decision to launch InsideVietnam Tours in the year 2013 - bringing the same depth of expertise and passion to travel in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. Since then, the InsideVietnam team has gone from strength to strength, and shows no sign of abating!
These days, Alastair is the InsideAsia IT manager and plays a key role in the design and upkeep of the company website - as well as in the production and management of all advertising and printing material. Outside the office, he is a man of many hidden talents and interests. Not only a dab hand at the guitar and a grade eight violinist, he also loves literature, theatre and politics - and had a penchant for wearing make-up to clubs in his early 20s.
