Big Yellow Suitcase is a bespoke tour company specialising in small group adventures to some of the most beautiful and interesting places in the world. The brainchild of two professional travellers, Wendy Hand and Tom Neal Tacker, the tours offer cultural immersion and authentic interactions with interesting and talented local people.
Tom Neal Tacker 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.
Wendy Hand 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 experience with other avid travellers.
Both Wendy and Tom share a passion for ‘slow travel’ offering the opportunity for travellers 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.
