Our Founders
Andrew Grieve
Andrew is an inveterate traveller since his early student days (when he still had hair and a beard!). A Masters graduate from a leading UK University, he started his travel career in local tourist boards before founding his business all those years ago. He is a real authority on all things British and Irish and has a strong personal interest in the history and heritage of the many European cultures and peoples.

Still active in Finest Journeys, and when not involved in senior management activity, Andrew involves himself in the details of tour planning.
