Speak to Catherine

Catherine's passion for travel started when she was a child and spent the summer holidays travelling through Europe with her mother.

After completing her BA HONS degree in Dance and Theatre Performance, Cat wanted to see more of the world. The USA had always been of interest and she embarked on a self-drive trip down the east coast of Florida. More recently, since joining Audley, Catherine has travelled to the USA again, but this time to the Deep South. Travelling up the Mississippi River and beyond through four different states in total.

Speak to Jesse

01993 838 937
Jesse was bought up in the Italian countryside and developed a passion for travel from an early age. She travelled extensively in South America before starting her career in the industry as a guide in Europe. This gave her the opportunity to thoroughly research the history, architecture and culture of the cities — enthusiastically introducing first-time travellers to the continent. During this time she also undertook several trips on her own, mostly focusing on Asia. She particularly enjoyed exploring Indonesia's diverse islands and Japan's unique and fascinating culture. Her latest adventure saw her walking the Great Wall of China and driving across India in a rickshaw. She is passionate about photography, wildlife, and is a very keen diver. Whenever she travels her priorities are experiencing the local cuisine and spending time in local communities, getting to know their way of life. View full profile ›

Speak to Sarah

01993 838 743
Sarah's passion for travel was ignited after spending a university summer break backpacking around Australia. After graduating in psychology, she notched up several thousand miles, covering four continents. After spending two seasons skiing in Europe, she embarked on a two-year overseas experience where she was lucky enough to travel Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand. She gained some unique experiences, ranging from volunteering in a Balinese school to swimming with turtles on the Great Barrier Reef, and spending a winter season on the slopes in New Zealand. It was on this trip that she decided she was keen to pass on her passion and knowledge of world travel to others. Sarah began her career at Audley as a New Zealand specialist, creating tailor-made itineraries to inspire clients about her favourite country. She then made the move to the Concierge team, where she is able to use her knowledge and vast experience to advise clients about all the destinations that Audley covers. View full profile ›

Speak to Holly

01993 838 146
During her time at university, Holly spent a summer working and travelling in the USA, taking in Florida, Washington and New York State. She had also visited Tanzania — and the world-famous Serengeti National Park — where she had her first experience of a safari. After university, she began to get itchy feet and the desire to travel once again took hold. It was only through speaking with a friend who worked for Emirates that she realised there was a perfect opportunity for her to live abroad, work and see the world as an air hostess. Now, she had the opportunity to travel extensively through her line of work, covering four continents and over 50 countries. Although only being in a country for 24-48 hours, she made the most of her time exploring the different cultures, cuisine and endless excursions on offer to her. Holly enjoys adrenaline filled activities wherever possible, from abseiling down Table Mountain in Cape Town, to shark cage diving off the coast of Durban. Consequently, South Africa has become her first choice travel destination. View full profile ›
