Andy & Bev Fraser 

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.” ~ Mark Twain
Andy and Bev Fraser
New Directions
(But not really)

Stating the obvious, the World of Travel has changed over the past decade or so. And it hasn't always been for the best.

Trying to keep our operations afloat with the smaller numbers has been more than a bit of a chore. So much so in fact that we're 'sort of' amalgamating with Expedia Cruise Ship Centers of Penticton.

Our pals will be handling the bookkeeping and financial end of the business which means we no longer have to tie up many thousands of dollars with the government.

What it means is that any tour we operate will be under the umbrella of our friends in Penticton and your money is fully protected as always.

For you - no change. Anything we 'offer' we will be escorting - same as before. And those offers will have the same structure as before. In other words, they will be set up as they always have been. Except you will now have the option of full service including air and insurances all wrapped into one package.

Who are we???  (We often ask the same question)


After  years as a journalist and editor, Andy Fraser decided it would be more satisfying to take people with him to see these places he loved and cared about rather than to just write about them as he had been doing. So in 1986 Andy set up the first small group journey of Fraser Connection Tours.

From the beginning the idea was to create a personal exploration, not a 'bus tour'. These journeys are relaxed and slow paced designed to give guests the chance to 'feel' the places they visit.
 

On any group that Andy & Bev escort, the groups are small - 12 only; the pace is relaxed with two, three and four nights in each location - always. Start time for the day is nine or 9:30 a.m. with a return to the hotel at four or 4:30 p.m.  Free time is built in and there is no following the lady with the red umbrella!  No Group mentality! A Land Cruise without all the people.

As The Fraser Connection, Andy and Bev escorted their tours to many, many countries.
See the list below.

Countries and regions visited: Scotland, Ireland, Northern Ireland, England, Wales, Channel Islands, Northern France, Provence and South of France, Portugal, Spain, Italy, The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Monaco, Germany, Italy, Austria, Czech Republic, Morocco, Turkey, the Maritimes of Canada, West Coast of Canada. This year: Scotland, Portugal, South of France, The Balkans, Turkey and Texas.

"We've traveled with Andy and Bev three times over the years and are looking forward to having the opportunity to do so again.  Their "untours" are a great way to see incredible sites at a leisurely pace without all the hectic rushing of traditional tours.  They arrange everything and a fun time is had by all."
Ron & Barb K, Abbotsford, B.C.

We knew they offered a one-of-a-kind experience.  We had never sought out a trip to Turkey, but when we learned Bev & Andy were organizing one, we knew it would be something to remember.  We were not disappointed!.
