A Case History

Behind every great journey there is a story.

What began as a social meeting between two professional travellers in New York’s grand Algonquin Hotel has quickly evolved into the newest bespoke tour company specialising in small group adventures to the most beautiful and interesting places in the world.

When Wendy Hand and Tom Neal Tacker first met in New York, they immediately began sharing travel stories, as one does when travelling is central to their life’s work.

Wendy has owned and operated an events management company that has taken her around the world many times. Over the years she has nurtured a deep affection for particular places and a desire to share this fondness with other avid travellers.

Tom has been writing about travel for nearly twenty years. He owns and operates the online magazine www.nakedhungrytraveller.com.au which continues to lead him around the globe searching for unique cultural, gastronomic and historical insights. His stories have also appeared in all of Australia’s major newspapers and magazines.

They share a passion for ‘slow travel’, which means having an ability to settle into a place, living as the locals do, getting to know a place well instead of rushing through it simply to tick off another goal on a bucket list of destinations.

Believing in cultural immersion and authentic interactions with interesting and talented local people is essentially what Big Yellow Suitcase tours are all about.

The tour based in captivating Ajijic on the shores of stunning Lake Chapala is a project both Wendy and Tom have worked hard to establish.
