Roland & Anne Neave
Our fearless leader, Roland, has been with Wells Gray Tours since day one! He spent his teenage years exploring Wells Gray Park and during University devoted his summers to arranging bus tours of the Park. After graduation, he expanded this service into a year-round business called, you guessed it, Wells Gray Tours! Since then, the company has grown to become one of British Columbia’s largest tour operators offering trips worldwide, but Roland is still as involved in the day-to-day operations as he was on day one. He still leads our annual tours to Wells Gray Park personally and travels year-round to make sure our tour offerings meet our clients’ high expectations. He is extremely proud of our fantastic team, many of whom have been with the company for over 15 years. After receiving her Bachelor of Home Economics degree from UBC in 1970, Anne moved to Kamloops where she taught Home Economics for 19 years. Roland and Anne married in 1987. Anne worked part-time in the office for many years and continues as a background advisor about many things tour-related. She is an active volunteer in Kamloops and is very busy with several societies. They have two adult children, Heather and Fraser. They look forward to welcoming you on board a Wells Gray tour!
