We had such an incredible time in South Africa, a place whose riches are not found in money, but in the nature, culture, and memories that we created.

We found Audley Travel to be a wise investment in making our journey an eternal life long memory.
Using Audley Travel, and working with Specialist Mary, is absolutely the smartest foreign travel decision we have ever made. Mary exceeded our expectations. She was categorically outstanding, profoundly knowledgeable, organised and responsive. She booked us all the tours, good Vietnamese flights, as well as lovely and comfortable hotels with incredible staff and amenities, and everything went flawlessly in all three cities. Overall, we found Audley to be a wise investment in making our journey an eternal life memory.
Having never been overseas before the services provided by Audley Travel were essential to us having such a successful trip.
Our country specialist Joe was very responsive to our needs, interest and requests for what we were looking for in a trip. Having never been overseas before, the services provided by Audley Travel were essential to us having such a successful trip. The stresses of where to go, what to do and how to get there were all taken away. All we had to do was show up and enjoy the trip. We all got along famously — there were literally no hiccups and the experience was tenfold what it would have been if we had attempted it on our own.
This destination was a little intimidating for us, especially traveling on our own and not in a group, but Audley gave us back some sense of independence.
Rebecca and Michael travelled to South Africa for 27 days in April 2018, organised by Devon B
Devon was outstanding. Very responsive and the ultimate trip planner. When I think back to where I started in this process and how she listened to my requests and added her knowledge of South Africa to the mix, it ended up being the perfect trip. Of course the location was a big part of that but Audley did it right! Thank you so much. This destination was a little intimidating for us, especially travelling on our own and not in a group, but Audley gave us back some sense of independence. It went off without a hitch and we loved it!
Tesia was a good listener and clearly understood what I hoped to accomplish on this visit to Japan.
Tesia was a good listener and clearly understood what I hoped to accomplish on this visit to Japan. All the accommodation was superb. The cities we visited were all different in their own unique and special ways. The time of year we chose on her advice (early April) was ideal for seeing the cherry blossom in full bloom.
We would highly recommend Audley Travel to anyone considering a unique trip not only to Japan but to any of their other destinations.
From our first contact with Audley Travel to our return home, they were a pleasure to work with. Rebecca, our specialist, listened carefully, planned the trip to the last detail, and included what we asked for and more. The advanced preparations made making the moves between locations easy. We continue to rave about our trip. We would highly recommend Audley Travel to anyone considering a unique trip not only to Japan but to any of their other destinations.
We've already recommended both Audley Travel and Suncica to several friends and family
Our trip with Audley was incredible. Working with Travel Specialist Suncica on our trip to Machu Picchu and the Galapagos was a pleasure. My son and I appreciated all the work she put in to make our trip so special, every suggestion and excursion was exactly what we asked for. We loved the different boutique hotels we stayed at and found all of the restaurants she suggested to be excellent. We have already recommended both Audley Travel and Suncica to several friends and family.
Our expectations of the entire trip were exceeded due to the first class service provided by Audley.
LeeAnn Rogalski travelled to Thailand for 16 days in January 2018
Our trip to Thailand was amazing thanks to our travel planner Brittany, and the service provided by Audley. We sincerely enjoyed our visit to Chiang Rai. We toured the White Temple, coffee plantations and tea plantations. Our guide Anek made the tour extra special with his personal connections. We got a 'Behind the Scenes' tour of the White Temple workshop. Our expectations of the entire trip were exceeded due to the first class service provided by Audley.
In Tanzania, our guide was a top notch professional and extremely knowledgeable, taking us off the beaten path to provide us with an unrivalled experience in the parks.
From start to finish this trip was perfect. In Tanzania, our guide was a top notch professional and extremely knowledgeable, taking us off the beaten path to provide us with an unrivalled experience in the parks. Amy’s advice for Rwanda was also unimpeachable. Our guide provided us with a social and political perspective no travel brochure could provide. It was a privilege for us to have him share his story with us which was honest, raw, and poignant and changed us in profound ways.
Everything went off without a hitch, a testament to Audley’s attention to detail.
Bill and Carrie Cole travelled to French Polynesia for 10 days in May 2018, organised by Eric

Thanks to Audley Travel and Country Specialist Eric, we were able to make our dream a reality. I informed Eric of our interest in visiting Bora Bora, our budget, and dates of travel. He was always professional and extremely patient with my questions and suggestions. It was a true collaboration. Everything went off without a hitch, a testament to Audley’s attention to detail.
This was a dream holiday. We travel extensively and hands down this was the best one.
Abby Mackness travelled to Australia and New Zealand for 29 days in January 2018, organised by Eric
This was a dream holiday. We travel extensively and hands down this was the best one, we didn't have to worry about anything. Audley Travel took away the hassle of our 'out of the country' holiday. I didn't have to worry about what to do, how to get there or where to go. Everyone involved from Audley Travel to a driver in New Zealand, was so friendly and professional. Nothing less than five stars from us!
The hotels he chose, the destinations we traveled to, the tours, the meals we indulged in, the balance of free time and amount of time at each location was optimum in every way.
Arlene and Julie travelled to Indonesia and Thailand for 14 days in February 2018, organised by Ashley B
Ashley took the time to listen to our requirements and put together a dream holiday for us. The hotels he chose, the destinations we travelled to, the tours, the meals we indulged in, the balance of free time and amount of time at each location was optimum in every way. He was able to make the arrangements so that inner travel time was minimised, the excursions were strategically scheduled, and the driver and guide selected were friendly, flexible, informative and knowledgeable about the culture which made the trip incredibly interesting and pleasurable. Thank you for the best three weeks ever!
The entire trip was well planned. Our connections were always exact and on time. The trip exceeded our expectations.

Jennifer was always a pleasure to deal with, she did an exceptional job
Dave and Ross Kossie travelled to Australia and New Zealand for 25 days in February 2017
Jennifer spent a lot of time getting specifics from us in the planning phase. She listened to us and came back with the perfect range of excursions to meet our expectations and budget. It amazed us that everything went exactly as planned. Jennifer was always a pleasure to deal with, she did an exceptional job. We feel like we really got to know her and that she really cared about making our trip one of a lifetime.
We also had a wonderful knowledgeable guide in Rwanda and he took great care of us as well.
Amy suggested that we should travel by jeep the entire trip and this turned out to be a fantastic decision. We had an entire safari vehicle to ourselves so we could easily see scenery on both sides of the roads. Some days, we were on the road for hours and sharing the trip with our guide Becki and his insights was really special. We ate our meals with him and really enjoyed learning about his life in Uganda and his family. All of the lodges seemed to know him very well as he was such a kind, friendly individual with a contagious laugh.
Jeanne was a pleasure to work with; always very friendly, polite and a very good listener.
Joan Bryant travelled to Australia for 16 days in February 2017

Jeanne was extremely knowledgeable about Australia. It was a real pleasure working with her. She was always very friendly, polite and a very good listener.
We were very happy with every detail of a fairly complicated trip.

As far as I am concerned, Audley will be my travel company for life and I recommend it to anyone wanting to travel abroad.
We have been yearning to visit Japan for over 15 years and Audley was different from other travel agencies. I was contacted by Japan specialist Tesia personally and I loved that she had spent many years living in Japan and could give me advice that came from experience. Most importantly; she was as excited as I was to plan our trip and really cared about making it wonderful.
Our holiday was organised with precision and passion by Audley.
