Carly Eden: Sales and Marketing Manager - Tours

Carly is the sales and marketing manager at Anderson Tours but apart from selling our great range of day excursions and short breaks, she will also advise you on our fantastic taxi transfers, coach and mini coach hire and a whole host of other travel related products Anderson’s are involved in. With an MA in advertising and marketing from Leeds University and a BA in modern languages from Leicester University, Carly can converse with you in a whole host of different languages, even Catalan for those of you waving Barcelona flags!

Carly has been with the team for a year now and has made great strides in increasing our passenger numbers and helping to deliver an excellent product to our clients. She is pictured here at Tower Bridge midway between our office and the pub we frequent on a Friday evening.

Steve Lee: General Manager

Steve Lee is the General Manager at Anderson Travel with special responsibility for sales and marketing of both the fleet of vehicles operated and the range of day excursions and short breaks we offer under the Anderson Tours brand name. He also assumes the role of 'commander in chief' when Mark Anderson is away.

A graduate from the City of London Polytechnic Steve has been at the Company for twenty plus years, first arriving as a student on a work placement. Steve also represents Anderson Travel on the Coach Tourism Council, where he is that organisations treasurer and at Visit Britain.

He is pictured here at a music festival at Clapham Common with a 'friend' and proving the point that he can hold her and two cans of beer at the same time!

Mustaf Allale - Accounts

Mustaf has been at Anderson Travel for a period of five years now. A vital part of our accounts team if you need to pay bills or are seeking payment from us then Mustaf is your man.

Mustaf was able to follow his passion for athletics at the Olympics in London 2012 and is seen here shortly after winning the gold medal for fashion and dress sense and is being suitably patriotic.

Nicola Begbie - Reservations Manager

Hard working, amazing and with fantastic patience Nicola has been with Anderson Travel for close on ten years. As our reservations manager Nicola is the first point of call when enquiring about coach or mini coach hire and through the relationship which develops between her and our customers we generate fantastic amounts of repeat business. Nothing is too much trouble for Nicola and she is there to help with amendments and additional elements of your booking such as entrances, restaurant or hotel bookings.

Nicola is seen here on the London Eye last Summer – she doesn’t even like heights but was prepared to do the trip as the most fantastic way to see our wonderful City!


Nicola Begbie
George Aylott - Administration and Compliance Manager

George is the administration and compliance manager at Anderson Travel, a new post we recruited for in 2012. This was directly as a result of the ever increasing amount of paper work, health and safety information, signage, employment law etc which a business needs to deal with in 21st century Britain. Coming from a finance background in the City of London, George has been a quick leaner and has already become an invaluable member of the Anderson Team.

In Summer he occasionally cycles the 17 miles each way from his home in Buckhurst Hill to Tower Bridge. He can do that without even having to negotiate the London road system – he uses the tow path of the River Lea Navigation canal – which passes the Olympic stadium where he is pictured having a “moment”.


George Aylott
Hannah Anderson

Hannah now plays a background role in the business balancing the difficult jobs of mum, taxi driver, school help and general super woman with some special project work for Anderson Travel and Tours. Add to that the fact that she lives with owner Mark and you can see sainthood is not very far away!

Mark Anderson - Managing Director

From one coach which he drove himself in 1988 to the 50 vehicles currently operated Mark has had a pretty eventful 25 years in business. He still enjoys the day to day operation of coaches in the Capital and still goes out to do the odd bit of driving when needed to in the busy summer season. Mark is also Chair of the London Tourist Coach Operators Association, is a Board member of the British Educational Travel Association, sits on the management committee of CoachMarque and also on the CPT Coach Commission.

In his spare time he is a Director of Ryman League Football Team Kingstonian. Mark is pictured here giving some advice to one of his newer drivers about the width of a coach whilst balancing on an unsuspecting visitor from Ireland. Who said men cannot multi task!


Mark Anderson
Raymond Gill - Accounts

Raymond Gill is a key member of our accounts team. Raymond has been with us for over five years, making a valuable contribution to the department at Anderson Travel. Raymond is responsible for all our ledger control and for producing the analysis upon which we base much of our forecasting.

Pictured here on a Sunday afternoon in fashionable Covent Garden, Raymond enjoys the sights and sounds of the City and the atmosphere in and around the west end.

Paul Swanson - Financial Controller

Paul Swanson is our Financial Controller at Anderson Travel and runs a team of three people. He has been with the company almost twenty years and was at university with owner Mark Anderson in the early 80’s. Accurate and hardworking, Paul delivers precise management accounts for the group of companies and forecasts for the short, medium and long term. His experience in the role and insight into market conditions have been vital in the companies continued expansion over the last decade in a complex market place.

Paul is pictured here at the Olympic Park outside the velodrome. He is a keen cyclist, runner and big fan of the west London football team with Russian connections.


Paul Swanson
Danny Thompson - Operations Team

Danny has been around and about Anderson Travel since he was 16 and followed his Dad into the business. He passed his PSV test with us first on mini buses and then on full size coaches before joining the management team as one of our operations controllers in 2014. Quick witted and with the ability to maximise the utilisation of our fleet of coaches Danny has become an important member of the team at Tower Bridge. Pictured at his desk he is posing in his usual "why always me" mode!


Sean Jarrett
Owen Exon - Operations Team

A recent arrival at Anderson Travel, Owen forms a part of our operations team at Tower Bridge Road. Pictured here on the South Bank with the impressive City of London vista in the background, Owen has been quick to adapt to his new role, and we are looking for great things from him over the next few years.

Owen is part responsible for the efficient operation of our fleet of 29 coaches and forty plus coach drivers. Popular with both his co workers and the senior management when not at work Owen is heavily involved with his local gymnastics club where his children compete at a regional level in various age groups.


Owen Exon
Paul Flisher - Private Groups

Paul Flisher is in charge of our private groups department, a growing part of the business . Paul is the one stop shop for all your groups needs, not just coach hire, but booking hotels, restaurants, theatre seats, guides and entrances. From small beginnings this area of our business is really starting to take shape and we are getting many compliments and recommendations from happy customers who have travelled with us. Email Paul at paul.flisher@andersontravel.co.uk and he will be happy to help.

Paul is pictured outside his beloved Millwall FC on match day!

Annie Fraque - Operations Manager, Tours

Annie Fraque is our operations manager at Anderson Tours, responsible for the day to day running of our scheduled sightseeing tours and short breaks. Annie started work with us as a tour guide so is well placed to understand and organise all the tours we operate at Anderson's using the experience she gained "on the road" to ensure all tours run smoothly. Annie hails from Uruguay so has a very different view of Luis Suarez than the rest of us!

Peter Gilbert - Mr Fix It

Peter has worked for Anderson Travel for the last 20 years. Known very affectionately as Mr Fix It, Peter is both a fantastic engineer and a great team member, able to turn his hand to any task which comes his way. A native of South London but now living in Kent, Peter ensures that the Anderson fleet is maintained to the highest standards. With assistance from his son Jeff and our chief engineer Brian, Peter ensures that vehicles are in tip top shape mechanically and that the body work and appearance is pristine, no mean feat in London’s narrow streets with such high volumes of other road users.
