With crazy schedules and limited vacation time, we knew we needed help in planning a trip to New Zealand.

Tom and Sandra Hanna

Tom and Sandra Hanna travelled to New Zealand for 19 days in February 2019, organised by Matt M

With crazy schedules and limited holiday time, we knew we needed help in planning a trip to New Zealand. Enter our Country Specialist Matt and Audley. With a desire to see as much as possible in the time we were there, we needed an itinerary that was aggressive yet flexible. Matt answered a ton of questions and helped us build out the perfect trip. Everything we planned worked wonderfully - excursions, ferries, cars, hotels, B&B’s. Thanks Matt and Audley for helping us with a once in a lifetime experience.

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 in 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.

The hotels were amazing, the professional private drivers and tour guides made getting around on the narrow roads of the Amalfi Coast a breeze.

Joan in Italy

Joan Bevis and Jodi Long travelled to Italy for 10 days in September 2018, organised by Taylor L

Such a special trip, from the breathtaking views of Positano, to the ancient ruins of Pompeii, to the wine of Campania. 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.

Our country specialist Joe was very responsive to our needs, interest and requests for what we were looking for in a 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 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.

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.

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.

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 in South Africa

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.

David and Kenneth Roy in Japan

David and Kenneth Roy travelled to Japan for 12 days in March 2018, organised by Tesia S

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.

Beth and Ted in Japan

Beth and Ted travelled to Japan for 17 days in March 2018, organised by Rebecca N

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

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 Audley Travel method of custom-tailored travel is much superior to group travel or self-organized. We are already thinking about 2019.

Clients in Vietnam

Linda and Tim travelled to Vietnam for 26 days in February 2018, organised by Jack

After 35+ years of travel in the US and internationally, this custom planned trip was the best yet. We have planned our own trips and travelled with a number of highly rated tour companies. However, this custom-planned travel is, by far, the best in all ways, as well as the best value for our time and funds. Thank you for working with us on such a memorable adventure. The day by day itinerary was fantastic. We were spoilt by Audley Travel and Jack in particular. The Audley Travel method of custom-tailored travel is much superior to group travel or self-organised. We are already thinking about 2019.
