Adam Ford is editor of The Big Bus tour and travel guide and an Australian travel TV presenter, writer, blogger and photographer. He has travelled extensively through Australia, Europe, Asia, North America, parts of South America, Africa and the Middle East.
Adam worked as a travel consultant for a number of years with Flight Centre and Escape Travel, before taking up the opportunity to travel the world himself as host of the TV series Tour the World on Network Ten. The Big Bus tour and travel guide was launched shortly after.
With a professional background in PR and marketing, Adam took up acting at the age of 30 before making the transition to TV presenting a few years later. He trained as an actor at the National Theatre Drama School, and TV roles soon followed including Blue Heelers and We Can Be Heroes. However, as a presenter, Adam really found his stride.
Adam spent six years living in London and the city remains his second home. During that time he travelled extensively and has since clocked up visits to 50 countries, and all but one continent. He loves to experience everything a new destination has to offer and is equally at home in a five-star Palazzo in Pisa or a home-stay in Hanoi.
Adam’s presenting career has included roles on environmental affairs show Ecotopia and the award-winning café, restaurant and resort review series Eat, Play & Stay. It was on the road during a shoot in far north Queensland with Eat, Play & Stay that the idea for Tour the World was born. Adam hosted, wrote and co-produced three series (eighteen episodes), which aired on Network Ten, One, 4ME and Foxtel.
