OUR TEAM

MEET THE ENDEAVOURS LLAMAS...

FOUNDER & CHIEF LLAMA

Alex Taylor (He/Him)

The year is 2019, and after working in group travel, including that of the world's top National Football teams, brands and organizations, and having conquered Mt Kilimanjaro, the Dash to Dubrovnik, and the Machu Picchu Trek, an idea was planted in Alex's head...

'Can I combine a love for travel and adventure together to positively change the world?'

Endeavours Adventures is born...

Alex leads on challenge organisation and partnership development, which includes forging new relationships and making sure all our challenges run safely, smoothly and to the highest standard.

Equally, (in fact probably most importantly!), Alex makes sure each team member feels supported, empowered and equipped to be their professional and personal best whilst working for Endeavours, striving to always support the team and take them to the next level.

Passionate about sustainability, business, charity and adventure, Endeavours is more than just a business, its a passion and a dream that he hopes one day can be visible across the world.

Dash Sales Manager

Alex Cousins (He/Him)

Alex has always been keen for an adventure, travelling to 51 countries so far (and counting!). During his time at university, he completed treks to Machu Picchu and to the top of Kilimanjaro. He commanded a pack of 6 dogs across the Arctic circle and even embarked on an epic 6-day train ride on the Trans-Mongolian Railway, from Moscow to Beijing.


Alex now manages the operations and sales for the Ultimate Road Trip - The Dash to Dubrovnik. General car enthusiast and road trip addict, what Alex lacks in expert mechanical knowledge, he makes up for in DJing skills on the AUX cord!


Alex is super excited to join the Endeavours team alongside his colleague Nick, to grow Dash into Europe's biggest road trip and to create new unbeatable adventures.
