Jackie's passion for travel started in college when she moved from Southern California to attend school at the University of Miami, Florida. In her junior year she circumnavigated the globe, visiting 13 countries, learning about the different cultures.
Jackie has been with Audley since 2015 where she first started out as a specialist for the Middle East. She spent several months traveling throughout Egypt, Jordan, and Morocco visiting all of the major historical sites, as well as many unique and less visited regions. She then decided to expand on her knowledge of the British Isles and joined the Europe team at Audley. Jackie spent six weeks traveling throughout England, Scotland and Ireland visiting castles, cathedrals, war sites, whisky distilleries, and much more. Along with the dramatic landscapes, she also fell in love with the local cuisine, friendly people and charming countryside villages.
Audley Travel and the people of Egypt are dream makers
Dave & Kim D. traveled to Egypt for 8 days in December 2015, organized by Jackie Roth
Thank you for helping us experience the greatest trip that we've ever been on. The greeters at the airport, drivers and guides were all class acts. The booklet you sent us ahead of our trip was very helpful and we referred to it often. It was an excellent guide and reminder for the various elements of the trip. Both Kim and I appreciate the way to quickly answered all of our emails and calls with our various questions and concerns. Being in Egypt was magical. It was a genuine dream come true for both of us.
I'll never forget when…
While staying in the Cairngorm National Park in Scotland, I had the opportunity of spending the day with one of the expert park rangers, and experiencing it from their 'behind-the-scenes' point of view. We started by hopping in his Land Rover and off-roading through the park, passing wild bulls, horses, families of sheep and even new-born lambs. Once we’d got to a lookout point where the trees cleared, our ranger set up a lovely picnic lunch, overlooking the snow-capped mountain range in the distance.
After an unforgettable lunch, we continued driving through the National Park where we came across a herd of roe deer. Our ranger whistled and in a heartbeat, they came running over the hill, where I had the opportunity of feeding the deer right from the palm of my hands. To cap everything off, I ended the day by fly fishing on a completely desolate lake, with an expert gillie.
