Tim grew up in both the USA and the UK and made an early decision to enjoy a career in travel, and specifically aviation. He spent 36 years working as a Chief Purser for several airlines, latterly Air New Zealand, as well as additional positions in both pilot and cabin crew training and management teams. He retired from flying in 2014, but the travel bug proved hard to resist and the role of a Tour Manager was an immediate attraction.
Tim is the Tour Manager Specialist for GRJ Tours to China, but also regularly takes clients to Vietnam & Cambodia, India and across the USA. Within Europe he often enjoys Tours to Italy, France & Spain/Portugal.
His passions are Cookery, West Coast Jazz, History, Cuban Cigars, Lagavulin 16 years old single malt, Apple computers and of course, helping others to enjoy the adventure of travel. During the recent lockdown he worked as a home delivery driver for a supermarket chain. In his remaining spare time, he teaches English as a foreign language to foreign pilots and air traffic controllers.
His late Grandfather may be known to some clients as the Bandleader, Henry Hall.
Every day on Tour, be it good or bad, is an adventure. Enjoy it!
