JAMES PHYLAND – Director

James has been travelling to the common and not so common destinations for 25 years for work and leisure. He has travelled extensively both as an independent solo traveler and on family vacations (3 children) so knows how to make travelling a breeze when there are varying demands. James equally loves the laid back relaxation of 10 days in an overwater bungalow at the Maldives as much as an action packed speed trip to Tokyo and the Nagano ski fields. A firm believer that travel is within any ones reach he is passionate about ensuring all of our travel dreams come true. For those time poor, those wanting a working holiday, or for designing a fully guided tour based on your special interest, James will tailor a travel package to suit your needs.
