Dave and Ross Kossie travelled to Australia and New Zealand for 25 days in February 2017, organised by Jennifer D

John Hartley travelled to Uganda, Rwanda, Zambia, Zimbabwe, South Africa and Botswana for 21 days in June 2017, organised by Amy C
Audley was helpful at every turn. I communicated with Audley via email and we always got a quick response, even from South Africa. I would recommend Audley for travel anywhere in the world.
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
I had asked for an outdoor adventure trip and Jeanne provided a fantastic itinerary with jet boating, kayaking and snorkeling; a great way to experience these countries and all they have to offer. 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.
Patrick created an outstanding trip to Chile for us. His suggestions and planning were spot on and his knowledge and professionalism throughout the entire planning process was superb. We were very happy with every detail of a fairly complicated trip; with multiple flights within the country.
Patrick did a fabulous job understanding how we liked to travel.
We had a perfectly paced, comprehensive trip to Chile. Exploring the country from North to South over 35 days. Patrick did a fabulous job understanding how we liked to travel and designing a trip tailored to our unique needs. I would highly recommend Chile as a travel destination and Patrick is the perfect advisor for an epic adventure.
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.
John and Sonia Wickham travelled to South Africa for 14 days in September 2016, organised by Vicki
Our trip was organised with precision and passion by Audley, the service you receive from the team is far more than what you read in a brochure or website. In summary, awesome service by Audley and at Chitwa Chitwa Game Lodge, you will not be disappointed by the experience.
After a chat with Jack about my interests and available options, he organized a fabulous agenda leading to another great experience, this time in Borneo.
After being very pleased with the 20 day trip planned with Donna to Madagascar last year, I returned to them to plan a three week trip to Borneo in November 2015. After a chat with Jack about my interests and available options, he organized a fabulous agenda leading to another great experience. On return, I learned that I had to take the week between Christmas and New Year's day off, so I went back to Audley and within a week working with Claire, I had confirmation on an exciting six day trip to Nicaragua - that's service!

Audley was great in helping us make the most of our time and trying to get in as much as possible as well as making the visits to the sites interesting and thoughtful. They work with local partners and are always trying to give an experience with the most local colour they can without breaking one’s budget. The person we worked with was wonderful, helpful, and did all she could to try to create a package that would make the most of our time.
We are already planning when we can go back there we loved it that much!
Tom and Jenny Page travelled to The Maldives for 9 days in June 2016
Our honeymoon was absolutely incredible. We had such an amazing time. We are already planning when we can go back there we loved it that much! Thank you for helping us to book such a wonderful place!!
Our trip was so wonderful and I cannot believe how easy it all was.
I was very impressed with our country specialist Tesia and the organization of what she did for us. I am so appreciative of her expertise in the area and her professionalism. We had one portion of our trip with many modes of transportation and I just couldn’t believe how well done the train time schedule and tickets were. It was amazing. Our trip was so wonderful and I cannot believe how easy it all was. I explained that we wanted to do a lot of hikes and Tesia did just that, she set up the hikes and did a marvelous jobs. I cannot say enough about Audley and the philosophy behind what they do. I am telling all of my friends and I will easily be booking my next trip with Audley!
Thank you for making our dreams come true. I couldn't recommend the honeymoon gift service more highly!
Teresa and Gary Weller travelled to The Seychelles for 16 days in March 2016
We cannot fault our honeymoon in any way, it was a dream trip come true. After planning our trip and having our lovely wedding guests, friends and family contribute on the amazing website provided by Audley, we were counting down the days. We felt the specialists gave us an amazing combination of things to do and once we arrived everything was flawless.
Their attention to detail and responsiveness to our needs throughout the entire process was very impressive.
Audley’s Namibian country specialists, Chris and Jack, listened to our ideas, made suggestions, and together we came up with a travel plan that we felt really comfortable with. Their attention to detail and responsiveness to our needs throughout the entire process was very impressive.
We couldn't have done it without you, as there was so much to organise, which you did perfectly. We have already recommended you to friends and family.
Lu Sellers and family travelled to Costa Rica for 13 days in December 2015, organised by Vicki
Massive thanks again for organising our trip to Costa Rica. Everything from the first time we spoke was dealt with in a super efficient way, which made planning our trip so easy on my part! It was the most fantastic holiday ever, so much so that we are all still sad it's over and would certainly do it all over again. We couldn't have done it without you, as there was so much to organise, which you did perfectly. We have already recommended you to friends and family.
What impressed us most about Audley is the way they selected and liaised with local guides to provide culturally authentic and unusual experiences.
Melissa, George, Corine, and Bruce travelled to Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam for 29 days in February 2016, organised by Alex P
We recently returned from a wonderful Indochina trip planned by Audley Travel. What impressed us most about Audley is the way they selected and liaised with local guides to provide culturally authentic and unusual experiences. For instance, Audley arranged for us to meet with some local fishermen in Hoi An and share time with them as they cast their nets on the local river. This was not a strictly for tourists event, and there were no others sharing this experience. In Siem Reap, our guide was able to get us into Angkor Thom, Angkor Wat, and Ta Prohm Temples at dawn before the throngs of tourists appeared. It was a memorable trip.
Cambodia is a beautiful country. The people friendly, the food delicious and I would happily go back in a heartbeat.
I don't remember the first time I saw a picture of Angkor Wat, but I knew from that moment on, I needed to see it in person. After several years I was finally able to find the funds to embark on a journey of a lifetime. My first thoughts about Cambodia, apart from the heat, were how lush and green the country was. Having just come from Jordan, the contrast was startling. The Angkor Temples are some of the most amazing temples I have seen. The scale and grandeur of some of them and the intimacy of others is quite unique. The carvings are all exquisite and highly detailed and amaze me with their incredible artistry and beauty. Cambodia is a beautiful country. The people friendly, the food delicious and I would happily go back in a heartbeat.
Audley arranged 9 flights, 3 car rentals, 15 types of accommodation and more than 15 tours - and everything went smoothly.
Ivars and Rebecca Zvirbulis travelled to Australia and New Zealand for 38 days in March 2016, organised by Eric
We were very impressed when at the last moment we wanted to make a change that required Audley to make several quick alterations to our itinerary and they were able to find both air reservations and hotel accommodation for us. The most impressive part was that Audley arranged 9 flights, 3 separate car rentals, 15 types of accommodation and over 15 tours, and everything went smoothly. We can truly say that our Audley specialist Eric patiently listened to our preferences and planned the trip consistently with our interests, mixed with his thoughtful recommendations. Virtually every day was a highlight.
There were so many highlights – Seeing Victoria falls for the first time on land and from the helicopter and some rather impressive Lions in Chobe and Moremi.
David Poole and Samantha Leech travelled to Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mauritius and Botswana for 18 days in July 2015
There were so many highlights – Seeing Victoria Falls for the first time on land and from the helicopter, African wild dogs (very rare) and some rather impressive lions in Chobe and Moremi. Our guides deserve a special mention: Mike (Chobe) and Anthony (Sango). You can’t buy the memories that they gave us and their knowledge of the animals was incredible. Thanks for the suggestion about seeing the falls from both sides, you get to see this natural spectacle from completely different angles.
I heartily recommend Audley as a travel planner. The service was excellent and the trip exceeded our expectations.
Lauren's knowledge and enthusiasm for Vietnam and Thailand was amazing. She is a good listener and is excellent at creating experiences that were tailor-made for our interests. She was spot on! I heartily recommend Audley as a travel planner. The service was excellent and the trip exceeded our expectations. It was the perfect mix of experiences! It will be difficult to top this adventure in Southeast Asia.
