Bruce and Lindy Bishop
Bruce and Lindy Bishop both grew up on dairy farms near Berry on the South Coast of NSW Australia. This practical beginning has stood them in good stead for the tasks and challenges involved in running a tour business.
They have been working in the tourism industry for over 30 years. Bruce moved into tourism in the mid 1980 with the "Bigfoot" machine he had built to operate at the family owned "Coolangatta Historic Village".
Their first adventure was to Cape York in 1992. Through their years of experience they have gained a wealth of expertise and knowledge which is born out in their organisation and enthusiasm. Over the years they have discovered many hidden treasures which they love to share with their travellers.
Each of their tours are personally created to ensure you experience the most out of every adventure. They love what they do and it shows through their friendly attitude and reliability. They welcome the opportunity to share their wonderful adventure secrets with you today.

Many thanks for a wonderful tour of Northern Italy. We certainly met the locals and felt that we were a part of this beautiful region. The tour was set at a very comfortable pace which made the distance travelled by both walking and train easy and rewarding. Once again thank you for showing us this colourful Region of Northern Italy and your great pre-tour info reading.
