    Melinda and Paul A in Italy

    Melinda and Paul travelled to Italy for 9 days on November 2019, organised by Madeline S

    We chose Audley Travel after speaking with their Italy Country Specialist, Madeline. She took the time to get to know us, our interests and personalities, and delivered us a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Italy. Every detail of our stay was perfectly planned and executed. All their travel partners were friendly, professional and took exceptional care of us, from the person who collected us at the airport and took us to our hotel to our drivers and tour guides. Everything was thought of and attended to on our behalf. Our trip exceeded well beyond our expectations. Madeline and every one of their partners helped us to create so many amazing memories — we will never travel any other way!
  • Everything went perfectly from the moment we were picked up at the airport to the moment we were taken to the airport in Phuket for our journey home.

    Peter and Lynn in Thailand

    Peter and Lynn Hendricks travelled to Thailand for 14 days on November 2019, organised by Lauren S

    Of Audley, and especially Lauren who put this trip together, I can’t say enough. Everything went perfectly from the moment we were picked up at the airport to the moment we were taken to the airport in Phuket for our journey home. Our Bangkok and surrounding area guide, Thananlada, was so very knowledgeable and willingly shared her countries customs, history and religion with us. She went out of her way to take us to see things not on our itinerary and was especially careful to see we did not fall when going up or down or walking on rough ground.
  • She helped us develop an itinerary that met our goals and included: comfortable accommodations, superb local guides, and suggestions of local highlights and restaurants to visit on our own.

    Merena, Don, and Naomi in Japan

    Merena, Don, and Naomi travelled to Japan for 20 days on November 2019, organised by Tamatha F

    Tamatha, Senior Travel Specialist with Audley Travel, did a superb job designing our 20 day journey to Japan. She helped us develop an itinerary that met our goals and included: comfortable accommodations, superb local guides, and suggestions of local highlights and restaurants to visit on our own. Tamatha also provided us with carefully thought-out arrangements for connecting travel between cities, taking into account the fact that all three of us are in our eighties. We couldn’t have had such a wonderful journey without her expert guidance.
  • I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed every minute, Not one hiccup. It was perfect.

    Diane and John Peavy in Italy

    Diane and john Peavy travelled to Italy for 15 days on October 2019, organised by Samantha R

    From the moment I spoke to Samantha Rubin at Audley Travel, I felt I was in good hands. Little did I know, in about ten minutes of sharing ideas, our bucket list trip was coming to life. She was so excited to share her thoughts and ideas because she had experienced most of these adventures herself. We wanted to experience the real Italy: high speed trains, hydrofoil ferry to Capri and excellent hotels in city centers so we could walk by ourselves during free time and feel safe. All of our expectations were met on this trip, Samantha never let one detail go lacking. I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed every minute, Not one hiccup. It was perfect.
  • If you wish to have the best holiday ever, Audley will provide you with knowledgeable local guides, immediate access to galleries (we had special passes which meant no queues), and your own private driver.

    Inez in Italy

    Inez travelled to Italy for 9 days on September 2019, organised by Madeline S

    I visited Italy 40 years ago and was so excited to return. Madeline, my country specialist, created the most amazing trip to Italy; we went to Venice, Florence, Rome, ate a seaside patio lunch in Cinque Terre and indulged in a wine tasting at a Tuscan farmhouse. If you wish to have the best holiday ever, Audley will provide you with knowledgeable local guides, immediate access to galleries (we had special passes which meant no queues), and your own private driver. You are the only focus during an Audley Tour.
  • Our country specialist Tamatha was superb, especially since she had visited many of the areas we wished to see and experience.

    Charles Rawling and his partner in Vietnam

    Charles Rawlings travelled to Japan for 9 days on September 2019, organised by Tamatha F

    My partner has a special affinity for Japan but had never visited so we decided to explore some off the beaten path ideas for her birthday. I had worked with Audley before, and was impressed by their service, so decided to seek their help in designing our Japan trip. Our adventures would include catching our own Uni, hunting for heteromorphic ammonites in Hokkaido, and experiencing an authentic tea ceremony. Our country specialist Tamatha was superb, especially since she had visited many of the areas we wished to see and experience. Our experience couldn't have been better.
  • Small touches throughout the trip made the whole experience extra special.

    Pamela Broadman in the Galapagos

    Pamela Broadman travelled to Ecuador for 10 days on June 2019, organised by Paco R

    Paco did a wonderful job planning my trip from start to finish. Small touches throughout the trip made the whole experience extra special. On my birthday he organised a special dessert for me after a complimentary dinner at his favourite restaurant. The private excursions that day topped off the trip to make it extraordinary. A big thank you to Paco and Audley Travel.

    Marsha and Val

    Marsha and Val travelled to Indonesia for 12 days on April 2019, organised by Alix M

    My colleague and I decided to go on a trip to Bali this year but we didn't want the hassle of doing all the planning. We ended up calling Audley and working with Indonesia country specialist Alix who asked us what we like to do on holiday and what our budget was. She was very detailed and we appreciated that her findings always matched our interests. Once in Bali, everything was seamlessly organised. We both have agreed that this trip to Bali is the best one yet of all our travels, thanks to Alix and the Audley team.
  • We would definitely travel with Audley again, it was worth every penny!

    Linda and Mike in Thailand

    Linda and Mike travelled to Thailand for 16 days on April 2019, organised by Alix M

    We loved our Audley trip to Thailand. It was both stress free and full of adventure, plus we felt very safe and well taken care of. We loved all of the hotels that our country specialist Alix selected. We especially enjoyed the bike adventure in Bangkok, the elephant sanctuary, the waterfall hike, visiting the coffee and tea plantations, and getting the chance to celebrate Songkran. We would definitely travel with Audley again, it was worth every penny!
  • Audley and my country specialist Elyssa made everything happen in the best possible way, and exceeded every single expectation I had for this trip. I’m convinced no other organisation or person could have pulled it off.

    Steven in Vietnam

    Steven travelled to Vietnam for 16 days on March 2019, organised by Elyssa F

    In March 2019 my sister Christy and I went back to Vietnam after I had been there 50 years ago during the war. I had some very specific requirements about where I wanted to go, what I wanted to see and who I wanted to have the chance to meet. Audley and my country specialist Elyssa made everything happen in the best possible way, and exceeded every single expectation I had for this trip. I’m convinced no other organisation or person could have pulled it off.
  • Harry listened to our interests and made suggestions as to what we might like to do.

    Rich and Amy in Ecuador

    Rich Saunders and Amy Kendis travelled to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands for 20 days on January 2019, organised by Harry S

    We worked with Audley Travel and Harry for our trip to Ecuador. Harry listened to our interests and made suggestions as to what we might like to do. Harry's recommendation of The Yolita for our seven night Galapagos cruise couldn't have been better. It was active with hikes and snorkeling every day and we had an excellent time. Harry then sent us to Napo Wildlife Centre in the Amazon which was, perhaps, his best recommendation. We were extremely lucky to site a jaguar which is a rarity. Thank you Audley and Harry for an unforgettable adventure.
  • Elyssa kept in touch with us throughout our travels and shared her expertise along the way — we were extremely pleased with the service she provided. We already have our next holiday booked with Audley.

    Elyssa, our country specialist, first discussed our trip wishes with us and then tailor-made a dream trip to Thailand and Cambodia. We saw temples and hiked the mountains, met the elephants and spent a morning cooking with a Thai family. At Angkor Wat our guide was able to take us away from the crowds, making the experience truly unique. Elyssa kept in touch with us throughout our travels and shared her expertise along the way — we were extremely pleased with the service she provided. We already have our next holiday booked with Audley.

    Nancy and family in Southeast Asia

    Scott and Nancy Perlson travelled to Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia for 19 days on December 2018, organised by Matt

    From our first interaction with Matt enquiring about doing this trip, to the wheels of the plane touching down at O’Hare after almost three weeks abroad, our experience has been incredible. We have travelled quite a bit and have worked with a number of different travel companies over the years, and as a result I feel confident in sharing our highest praise of Matt and the Audley team. Our trip was made even more extraordinary because of the professional care and attention to detail that allows a trip with so many moving parts to come off seamlessly. Thank you!

Taylor crafted an itinerary that touched on all of the beautiful local sites of Southern Italy. The hotels were amazing, the professional private drivers and tour guides made getting around on the narrow roads of the Amalfi Coast a breeze. The private Italian cooking lesson at Casa Laura was a highlight, we felt we have made a Friend for life. It was all so seamlessly planned by Taylor, we thank you and Audley for making this trip one that we will always cherish.

Amy’s advice for Rwanda was also unimpeachable. Our guide provided us with a social and political perspective no travel brochure could provide.
