Escorting tours for more than 15 years

Brad began his career in tourism as part of a very small team of passionate guides onboard the fledgling Rocky Mountaineer. Over the years, he moved his way up in the company, eventually running the Guest Services Department and helping to shape the train into a world-class experience. He has owned his own travel agencies, tour companies and also written marketing materials, with a flair for working with tourism based companies. When he decided to start motorcoach touring, he started as an international guide in China and Italy before finally deciding to focus on Canada's West Coast and the Rocky Mountains, his own backyard. He has escorted thousands of inspired guests through one of the most beautiful areas of the world.
