Jennifer was always a pleasure to deal with, she did an exceptional job
Dave and Ross Kossie traveled to Australia and New Zealand for 25 days in February 2017, organized by Jennifer D

It amazed us that everything went exactly as planned. Jennifer was always a pleasure to deal with, she did an exceptional job.

John Hartley traveled to Uganda, Rwanda, Zambia, Zimbabwe, South Africa and Botswana for 21 days in June 2017, organized 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 traveled 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 & 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. My most memorable experience was snorkeling in the waters of the Low Isles of the Great Barrier Reef. The coral was like a visual symphony of brilliant colors – pinks, blues, greens – all enjoyed in the muffled silence of the warm waters. For me, it was a sensory experience like no other!
We have been so impressed with the individual attention to our needs.
Jen Fortin traveled to The Galapagos Islands for 12 days in April 2017, organized by Harry S
It has been our dream for years to go to the Galápagos. We finally decided to plan the trip when I saw Audley on the web. Harry immediately contacted me and we started the booking process. We have been so impressed with the individual attention to our needs. Harry found out what we were looking for in the Galápagos and in Quito and he set up the itinerary. Swimming with a family of sealions and visiting the beautiful beach Gardner Bay in Espaniola were stand-out experiences for us. I also saw marine iguanas which was another dream come true! Audley met all of our needs from the very beginning to the very end of our trip!
Our specialist, Jack, assisted in planning out a trip that was near perfection.
Sharon and Gary Goodman traveled to Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam for 25 days in February 2017, organized by Jack
We discovered Audley Travel during an internet search of how to travel to Southeast Asia, and felt that Audley’s “tailor made travel” was exactly the right fit for them. And that turned out to be exactly correct! Our specialist, Jack, assisted in planning out a trip that was near perfection. Jack did a wonderful job of planning out the trip so that areas that required more strenuous schedules of sightseeing were nicely interspersed with segments of the trip that were particularly relaxing and refreshing. The guides that Audley arranged were one of the many highlights of the trip. We relished in the fact that most drivers and guides met us at each airport and never disappointed us with a no-show or late arrival. In many cases, we felt we had made a local friend. We would recommend traveling with Audley with no hesitation and, in fact, cannot sing its’ praises loudly enough. During their travels, we met other fellow Audley travelers who also agreed that everything planned by Audley had gone perfectly! We have already been urging all of our friends to travel with Audley on their next trip.
It was a tremendous benefit to us that the Audley specialists have actually been to the places we wanted to go, experienced many of the activities we were interested in and stayed in the accommodations they suggested for us.
Frank and Paula Evelhoch II traveled to Zanzibar Archipelago, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Zambia and South Africa for 21 days in January 2017, organized by Amy C
We'd talked about doing an African safari for most of our married lives, so after an extensive search for a travel company to make this happen for us we chose Audley. And what a wise decision that was. Perhaps the best thing about Audley is that our specialist asked us a ton of questions to determine what level of accommodations we'd want and what kinds of activities/sightseeing we like to do – not just suggesting that we should do what everyone else does on such a trip as ours. They went to great lengths insuring that the trip was tailored just for us. It was a tremendous benefit to us that the Audley specialists have actually been to the places we wanted to go, experienced many of the activities we were interested in and stayed in the accommodations they suggested for us.
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 through out the entire planning process was superb. We were very happy with every detail of a fairly complicated trip; with multiple flights within the country. His choices of accommodations and excursions complimented our desires to see as much of the country as possible within our time frame. He most definitely satisfied our desire to have Chilean epic adventure!
It was the time of my life without a doubt.
My wife and I enjoyed a fantastic trip to South Africa due in large part to the efforts of our specialist Lauren and Audley Travel.
Andy Mckinley and Jamie Wolszon traveled to South Africa for 11 days in February 2017
My wife and I enjoyed a fantastic trip to South Africa due in large part to the efforts of our specialist Lauren and Audley Travel. Lauren went to great lengths to understand our travel style, our interests, and our desired destinations in South Africa. She made excellent suggestions on lodging and tours to accentuate our interests, and she always invited our feedback. We will undoubtedly contact Lauren and Audley Travel for future trips!
Our twelve day Audley trip across Cuba exceeded our expectations.
Ron Haak traveled to for 12 days in March 2017, organized by Patrick H
Our twelve day Audley trip across Cuba, starting in the west and finishing in Havana, exceeded our expectations. We had been advised that the accommodations, food, and roads wouldn't be quite up to what we typically encounter. And that was good advice, but all those things were fine, no doubt aided by the good planning and oversight of Audley and their Cuba partner as well as the excellent quality of our driver and guides. Our advice to anyone thinking about a Cuba trip is to go now!
Megan was a joy to work with and very accommodating in developing a final itinerary that proved perfect for our needs.
We have wanted to go to Machu Picchu for many years and we were not sure how to plan this adventure. When I did an internet search, I found Audley and our country specialist Megan who helped make this a truly wonderful experience. Each hotel we stayed at was more impressive than the last and all Megan's effort added to our enjoyment of this spectacular trip. Megan was a joy to work with and while we were not exactly sure of what we wanted, and we changed our mind all the time, Megan was very accommodating in developing a final itinerary that proved perfect for our needs.
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. I contacted several travel agencies for quotes and Audley was different immediately. Rather than contacting me via email with vague options, I was contacted personally via phone by a Japan specialist, Tesia. I loved that she had spent many years living in Japan and would 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. Tesia was able to plan a trip that gave us the perfect balance between modern and traditional Japan. I was shocked to see that a trip that included so much and several private guides was just as affordable as the trips being quoted to me by more run-of-the-mill travel agencies. Not only did Audley not disappoint, it exceeded all our expectations! We had the most wonderful trip to Japan, were able to see EVERYTHING we wanted to see, had absolutely wonderful guides, and had great accommodations. Tesia guided me every step of the way and was incredibly patient with my thousands of questions, changes to the itinerary and nervous excitement. We knew this would be the trip of a lifetime, and it was, thanks in large part to Tesia and Audley. I was so impressed by Audley that I am now planning an upcoming trip to Italy. As far as I am concerned, Audley will be my travel company for life and I recommend it to anyone wanting to travel abroad. Thank you Tesia and Audley for memories we will treasure for the rest of our lives and for more memories to come!
I did a tour in Vietnam in 1969 and often thought of going back.
I did a tour in Vietnam in 1969, serving as an infantryman with the 9th Infantry Division in the Mekong Delta. Over the years I had thought often of going back. I think I felt it would be good for me to see the country and the people without the effect of a war going on. This past winter my wife and I traveled to Thailand and took an extra week to go back to Vietnam. I had done some research about returning veterans and found Audley Travel on the internet. Jack was our country specialist and after several e-mail and phone conversations he designed an itinerary just for us. I was very pleased with our experience. Our personal guides and driver made every effort to make our stay enjoyable and stress free. Vietnamese people are very welcoming and I found no animosity toward Americans. The country has changed so much since my first trip. I enjoyed our trip very much and I was happy that my wife could accompany me this time.
Our vacation was organized with precision and passion by Audley.
John and Sonia Wickham traveled to South Africa for 14 days in September 2016, organized by Vicki
Our trip was organized 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!
Eric Nelson was skilled at tailoring my trip to my desires in a number of ways.
I took this trip because it was the first anniversary of my husband's death and I thought it would be good to be far away and in a different hemisphere during this period. Eric Nelson was skilled at tailoring my trip to my desires in a number of ways. When I told him my desire to dine out on my wedding anniversary date, he made sure to schedule a tour that included a group dinner for that day. He adjusted my Melbourne tour schedule a few weeks before my departure to accommodate my desire to attend Melbourne Vegfest with a local resident I had contacted on my own. When I told him of my special interest in wildlife, he made a point to schedule tours that allowed me to get outside cities to wildlife preserves.
My trip to the Galapagos was an amazing experience. I learned a lot I did not know about the country and the islands as well.
My trip to the Galapagos was an amazing experience. I learned a lot I did not know about the country and the islands as well. The trip went off mostly without flaws. Audley arranged for 2 day stay in Quito to experience some of the local culture which was great. I also had a desire to see the Blue Footed Boobie and I was able to get up close to these marvelous creatures and watch them with hatchlings.
We had a wonderful trip and we were very impressed with Audley and the arrangements made on our behalf.
We had a wonderful trip and we were very impressed with Audley and the arrangements made on our behalf. While we consider ourselves seasoned travelers, I can't imagine a trip to Thailand without having drivers and guides. All of the guides were excellent and the people of Thailand were truly amazing. The food and accommodations were great. We were so happy to have visited Thailand, and overall we would highly recommend Thailand and Audley.
