Sophie, Israel, Jordan & Oman Specialist
Having lived abroad for several years while growing up, a passion for travel and understanding different cultures was instilled in me from a young age. With this passion I want to help others discover the diversity and vibrancy of the places I’ve grown so fond of.
Before studying Art History at university, I returned to the Middle East, exploring further some of the destinations that I’d fallen in love with years beforehand.
When joining Audley, I had the chance to rediscover Oman on an exciting self-drive tour to fully appreciate the scenery of the mountains, life in the desert and the hustle and bustle of the cities. More recently, I travelled around Jordan, where my highlights were exploring the grandeur of Petra and floating in the Dead Sea. I also visited Israel, where I soaked up the atmosphere in the food markets, delved into the history of Jerusalem and enjoyed a traditional Shabbat dinner with a local family.

I'll never forget when…
One of my most memorable experiences was the exhilarating 4x4 ride in Jordan’s Wadi Rum. The scenery throughout this Martian-like landscape is simply breath-taking, with canyons seeming to stretch on for miles. We ended the day with a cup of traditional mint tea while watching the sunset with our local Bedouin guide.
