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.

My daughter and I are very enthusiastic photographers and for us this holiday was a fantastic opportunity to capture the beauty of South Africa.

David in Tanzania

David and Denise travelled to Tanzania and Rwanda for 14 days in June 2018, organised by Amy C

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 in French Polynesia

Bill and Carrie Cole travelled to French Polynesia for 10 days in May 2018, organised by Eric

Around the time of our third wedding anniversary, I informed my wife that we were going to go to Bora Bora for our 20th anniversary. 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.

We found Audley Travel to be a wise investment in making our journey an eternal life long memory.

Carla Fox in Vietnam

Carla Fox travelled to Vietnam for 15 days in May 2018, organised by Mary C

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.

David, Wendy, and Jack in Italy

David, Wendy, and Jack travelled to Italy for 9 days in September 2018, organised by Joe F

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 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

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.

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!

We've already recommended both Audley Travel and Suncica to several friends and family

Glan Sage enjoys his time in Peru

Glen Sage travelled to Ecuador and Peru for 17 days in August 2018, organised by Suncica H

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.

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.

From start to finish, our trip was designed and executed perfectly because of Margaret.

Caitlin and Russel enjoying South Africa

Caitlin and Russell Gage travelled to South Africa for 12 days in January 2018, organised by Margaret H

We loved all three chapters of our trip for various reasons. Cape Town was amazing and The Cape Cadogan was perfect for us. The guides were professional and knowledgeable and the setting stunning. From start to finish, our trip was designed and executed perfectly because of Margaret.

Our expectations of the entire trip were exceeded due to the first class service provided by Audley.

LeeAnn and Mary at the White Temple, Chiang Rai

LeeAnn Rogalski travelled to Thailand for 16 days in January 2018, organised by Brittany K

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.

Mary helped us plan an excellent trip! She was very knowledgeable about the places we visited and her suggestions for activities were great.

Lesley in Vietnam

Lesley Peeler travelled to Cambodia and Vietnam for 20 days in January 2018, organised by Mary C

Mary helped us plan an excellent trip! She was very knowledgeable about the places we visited and her suggestions for activities were great. She urged us to do certain things that we were dubious about, and they turned out to be fabulous! One in particular was the evening Vespa ride in Saigon. It was one of the highlights of our trip!

We had a fabulous trip, thanks to Carly Patane’s knowledge and understanding. She really listened to our preferences.

Ed and Claudia Damon in Ecuador

Ed and Claudia Damon travelled to Ecuador for 17 days in January 2018, organised by Carly P

We have traveled extensively, always independently, and were reluctant to have anyone plan a journey for us. A friend had great success with Audley and we decided to try Audley for a trip to mainland Ecuador because we had to plan the trip on short notice and were too busy to be able to research and plan it ourselves. We had a fabulous trip, thanks to Carly Patane’s knowledge and understanding. She really listened to our preferences, hopes and budget for the trip and plan accordingly, using their detailed knowledge of the country and memorable places to stay.

This was a dream holiday. We travel extensively and hands down this was the best one.

Abby in New Zealand

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!

I spent less time planning this trip than I have spent booking a trip domestically, and this was a 13 day trip for five people to Thailand which was packed with activities daily!

Eunice Perez and family in Thailand

Eunice Perez and family travelled to Thailand for 13 days in December 2017

Audley made the process very smooth and incorporated any changes we made. We loved how organized our itinerary was, thanks to Blair! I spent less time planning this trip than I have spent booking a trip domestically, and this was a 13 day trip for five people to Thailand which was packed with activities daily! My family felt spoiled with our private guides and transportation. Someone was always taking care of us even when it came to the little details like helping us check in our luggage for all our domestic flights within Thailand.

Carley Minkler was amazing, attentive to detail, responsive and all around terrific!

The Burke's in Chile

Lisa Burke travelled to Chile for 19 days in December 2017, organised by Carley M

Valparaiso was amazing. We loved the street art, La Sebastiana, and fireworks on New Year's Eve. We also loved the cooking lesson where we made Chilean cuisine. The visit to the Kingston Family Vineyards was magical and the lunch at Casas Del Bosques was amazing. Carley Minkler was amazing, attentive to detail, responsive and all around terrific!

Looking forward to Audley planning our next trip.

Willa Terry in South Africa

Willa Terry travelled to South Africa for 14 days in December 2017, organised by Luke R

“The safari was absolutely magnificent, I can’t say enough positive things about the lodge, the staff, the experience, the food, everything everything everything was fabulous - serenely luxurious, but not too fussy. The service was outstanding! I feel lucky and blessed to have found Luke via an internet search. Looking forward to Audley planning our next trip.”

Bryn was an absolute joy to plan and work with.
