About Us

Bellair Tours and Adventures pedigree originates from two long time Whatcom County motorcoach companies. In 2015, Bellair Charters & Airporter Shuttle celebrated its 30th year of providing scheduled transportation and customized charter service and in 2016 upon Jim Hesselgrave’s retirement, purchased Hesselgrave Tours. Today the companies operate over 60 vehicles in 4 different Washington State locations and employ over 140.

Whether you travel with us on a Tour or Adventure, a special group charter coach or on one of our scheduled services our goal is for you to relax. Enjoy our professional drivers and your ride on any of our 20, 30, 47 or 55 passenger vehicles. We’d like you to take in a movie, listen to your favorite pod cast, read or just look out the window and enjoy the ride!

Tour Host

Judy is a lifelong Washingtonian, living in Whatcom County the past 20 years.  She is blessed with a daughter and son and their spouses and six grandchildren.  She is a retired educator and in retirement finds joy in traveling, volunteering, playing bridge, quilting, reading and cooking.

When asked what Judy enjoys about being a tour host she immediately replies, “the people” and  in addition, the tours are fabulous.  She finds the tours fun, interesting and wonderful when the driving is left to an expert safe driver. Her primary focus as a tour host is to make the tour a great experience for the tour guests.

She doesn’t have one specific dream trip in mind but likes to look at experiencing new things that she may not have thought of or not had the opportunity to experience.  She says, that is why being a tour host for Bellair Tours has opened the door to many fun experiences and sharing those experiences with new friends.
