From sumo wrestling in Japan to the Angkor temples in Cambodia, this tour operator’s team of travel experts tailor group and individual tours throughout Asia. Three years teaching English in Japan led university friends Simon King, 43, and Alastair Donnelly, 42, to set up the Bristol-based company in 2000. It sells direct to customers on its multicurrency website and through travel agents. Overseas sales of package tours grew to £13.2m in 2017, due to increased investment in staff and marketing in Australia and America.
