Growing up in Africa, Alex caught the travel bug early. As soon as he finished university he travelled the world for two years, before settling down in the UK as a ski specialist tour operator. While working there for 6 years, Alex travelled to the USA numerous times and is proud to say that he has skied all of the major ski resorts in North America.
Taking his extensive USA knowledge he made the move into luxury travel and started at Audley.
Alex has recently returned from a trip during which he explored more of the USA including South Dakota, Yellowstone, Teton National Park, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon, and returned to some of his favourite areas of California such as Santa Monica, the beautiful Big Sur coastline and San Francisco.
He is now delighted to be part of a select number of specialists promoting his favourite part of the world.
I'll never forget when…
Taking a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon will be something that I remember for the rest of my life. I was fortunate enough to be given the 'co-pilot' seat up front, from where I had the best view of some of the most amazing scenery in the world.
The sheer scale of the canyon is hard to describe, flying over it in a helicopter really is the best way to see it all. The feeling I had when the ground below me dropped by a mile in a second as we flew out over the canyon for the first time, with views of the canyon walls all around me is something that I will remember for ever.
