Who are Andy & Bev Fraser? 

And how does it all work?
The Travel World

Keeping your money safe - and you happy!


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 have worked  out a simpler operation whereby others 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. We are the organizers and the escorts on every tour.

What it means is that any tour we operate, the money you pay will be under the protection of  Maritime Travel, Canada's largest independent travel agency and your money is fully protected as it always was when we operated as Fraser Connection.

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. And we can slow down a bit without having to still feed the government ever increasing fees.

If you have any questions at all, please give us a call at 1 604 795 7748.

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

After  years as a journalist and editor with various newspapers and magazines, 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.

Bev, who came on the scene just a few years later was a flight attendant for a time with Wardair, that great airline that knew that people had to be treated as more than profit making centres. She has also lived in various locations in Canada, California, Antigua, London and Hong Kong.

Bev and Andy have worked together since the early 90s organizing and escorting their own brand of small grou journeys.


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 - maximum of 15; 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 company grew, Andy and Bev escorted their tours to many, many countries.
(See the list below.)


Countries and regions visited:
Scotland, Both Irelands, 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 and West Coast of Canada, Texas, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Sarajevo, Montenegro.

"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!.

I want to go back for more and wouldn't hesitate going the next time with my dear friends, Andy and Bev Fraser.

P.S. In an e-mail from our Turkish guide Seyhun, he said The Fraser Tour was way more fun than the archeologists' tour.
