Awayadays is run by husband and wife team David and Beryl McMaster who are tourism professionals and passionate ambassadors for Norfolk. David was a Director of VisitNorwich and Chairman of Norwich Attractions and is committed to promoting Norwich and Norfolk which he loves as one of the UK’s top tourist destinations. David’s knowledge of Norfolk grew from his job managing farming co-operative, Aylsham Growers. But he decided on a complete change of lifestyle in 1997 when he started Awayadays and he was able to use those past links to enable him to include tours to estates not always accessible to the general public. He also introduced evening tours of Norwich with a Blue Badge guide before, in 2003, global franchise firm City Sightseeing, who operate open top sightseeing buses in more than 100 locations around the world, helped him set up City Sightseeing Norwich and he hasn’t looked back since!
