Leisuretime Tours has been trading since 1996, offering coach-based day excursions and holidays for the residents of Essex and Sulfolk. The business was started by a mother and daughter partenership, Mrs Olive Hazell and Mrs Lesley Sulley. Lesley had extensive experience in Retail Travel and Tour Organisation and had worked for several local firms before deciding to start her own business, whilst Olive is a Blue Badge Guide for the East of England & South East England.
Initially formed to provide escorted day excursions by coach with an emphasis on local pick ups, most notably from Mersea Island and Colchester, the business quickly expanded. It now offers a full range of day excursions, UK and continental holidays.
