SIMON ELLIOTT

Director of Sales

Having lived in locales as varied as Cape Town and Busan, Simon has settled back in his hometown of Toronto to embark on his greatest adventure yet: fatherhood. As our Director of Sales, Simon’s a veteran of many B&R trips who counts our Japan Biking and Peru Walking trips among his favourites—though he’s always on the look out for new trips that might trump them. When not in the office or on the road he can be found playing with his son Tom, walking Joni the wonder dog, on his bike or performing with his band.

ALLISON BARNES

Travel Advisor & Team Administrator

When Allison came to interview for a job at B&R, we were going to ask her if she shared our passion for adventure, food and making friends on the open road. Then we looked at her resumé: Working amongst grizzly bears at a private wildlife-viewing lodge off the coast of British Columbia, travelling Africa from Cairo to Cape Town managing communications for the Tour d’Afrique bike tour, cooking for cyclists riding from Turkey to Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan — so instead we just asked, “When you can start?”

PETER WHISH

Travel Coordinator

Studying Tourism in the heart of the Niagara wine country allowed Pete to develop an astute taste for the region’s ‘best exports.’ He worked summers aboard a cruise ship along the Eastern Seaboard and Caribbean before graduating with an Honors Degree in Tourism Administration. Straight off adventures backpacking through Thailand, Pete joined B&R where he specializes in planning all of your pre- and post-trip desires. Outside of the office he can be found on the nearest soccer pitch or supporting his beloved Manchester United.
