Itinerary

Day 1: Montego Bay

Accommodation options: Aerial view of Eclipse at Half Moon, Aerial view of the hotel, Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall & Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall

Today you begin your journey by boarding an outbound flight to Jamaica, landing in Montego Bay. On arrival, you’ll meet your driver and take a private transfer to one of the many luxurious hotels in the city. After checking in, you’ll have the evening to relax, perhaps take a stroll down the long stretches of white sand beach and dip your toes in the warm water.

Day 2: Montego Bay

Accommodation options: Round Hill, Aerial view of Eclipse at Half Moon, Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall & Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall

Spend the day relaxing at your hotel. Bask in the sunshine near the infinity pool or take a dip in the crystal-clear waters, exploring the sea life by snorkeling in the reef. Why not take advantage of the wide array of water sports available including tubing, water-skiing, windsurfing, kayaks and Hobie cats.

Day 3: Montego Bay

Accommodation options: Aerial view of Eclipse at Half Moon, Aerial view of the hotel, Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall & Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall

You’ll be picked up from your hotel in Montego Bay in the early afternoon and driven out into the green hills of Saint Ann, where you’ll experience a different side to Jamaica on this guided tour of a family-run farm. You’ll explore the grounds on foot with your hosts, learning about the local produce, before sitting down to a seven-course plant-based menu out on the terrace.

Day 4: Montego Bay

Accommodation options: Aerial view of Eclipse at Half Moon, Aerial view of the hotel, Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall & Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall

Another day to make the most of your luxurious hotel in Montego Bay and the white-powdered beaches. Why not start the morning with a yoga class, followed by a relaxing massage at the spa, as you listen to the Caribbean waters lapping the shore?

Day 5: Port Antonio

Accommodation options: Kanopi House,Geejam pool & The Trident

After a leisurely breakfast at your hotel, you’ll be collected by your private driver and driven to Port Antonio, to your hotel located deep in the wilds of the Blue Lagoon, a journey of approximately three and a half hours. In the afternoon, why not take a stroll down to Frenchman’s Cove with its white sand shores and clear waters. On balmy evenings, you can eat outside on the pink limestone terrace at Kanopi House.

Day 6: Port Antonio

Accommodation options: Kanopi House, Geejam pool & The Trident

Today you’ll spend a few hours floating along the Rio Grande by traditional bamboo raft, taking in the tropical rainforest scenery as you go. Along the way, your guide can fill you in on the history and culture of the area, as well as pointing out different plants along the banks and their various uses. You’ll also have the chance to pause for a refreshing swim. Halfway along the journey, you have the option to stop for an authentic Jamaican meal on the riverbank.

Day 7: Port Antonio

Accommodation options: Kanopi House, Geejam pool & The Trident

Today you’ll have the day at leisure to relax or explore the area independently. Whether you’re interested in hidden waterfalls, secluded beaches with undercurrents of freshwater, historical sites, snorkeling, surfing, delicious food or just some time to experience the authentic local charm, you’ll find it all in Port Antonio. Your hotel or guide will be able to arrange tours with knowledgeable guides to experience any of these natural wonders.

Day 8: Port Antonio

Accommodation options: Kanopi House, Geejam pool & The Trident

A private driver will pick you up in the morning from your hotel for the drive to Kingston. Here, you’ll have the chance to visit the former home of Bob Marley, along with the historical village of Port Royal and the National Gallery. Once you’ve explored Kingston, you’ll be driven out to the Blue Mountains just outside the city. As well as taking in the fresh air and views over the forested peaks, you’ll have an opportunity to sample the world-renowned coffee that’s produced in this part of Jamaica as your guide explains the coffee-making process from bean to brew.

Day 9: Return home

You’ll have most of the day at leisure to enjoy the beach or the Blue Lagoon, before being transferred back to Kingston Airport in time for your international flight home.

The only reason I am not giving them one star, is because they actually have AMAZING customer service while planning a trip. The issue that I have is that I had to postpone my trip due to Covid and because not all parties were vaccinated. At the time, Thailand had strict rules so I changed the trip to Vegas to be more affordable and convenient at that time. I have asked for a refund multiple times and still no response. I understand that if you couldn’t go because of Covid, you will receive a credit towards your next trip. At this point, numbers are going back up and I’m not going ANYWHERE!!! I was making adjustments to try to keep not just my party happy but to keep audley travel happy because I understand everyone was missing out on money because of Covid. But I do not want a credit, I know I am not going to travel by Dec 22 or 23 with the state of this nation and I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!! NOT A CREDIT!!! That’s damn near $1800 that I’m missing because I am choosing my health over excitement. I’m even more frustrated because I’m continuously being told I can not get my money back yet there’s multiple people on this site who stated that they did get a refund. I never even got my final statement. I really need a manager to call me and assure me that I will receive ALL my money back. This is my final attempt before I go legal route.


UPDATE: I spoke with someone less than 24hrs after making this complaint. Ms Karen was EXTREMELY helpful and understanding. She actually understood my concerns and instead of trying to persuade me to find another trip, she sympathize with my situation and immediately released my funds. I told her that I would be sure to use them in the future if the world ever goes back to normal.

My recent trip with Audley to Peru was an amazing experience, thank you very much to Caroline Revnell their south American specialist. All the logistics ran perfectly and I was met clearly with my guide or a representative at every point of travel, who would look after me and provide me with anything I needed. All accommodation was just right for me, all guides were excellent and had a great knowledge and I enjoyed every minute of it, thank you again Audley travel.

Just returned from a two week trip to Costa Rica organised by Nik Horncastle at Audley. Every element of the process - from discussing our requirements to booking, and the holiday itself- was efficient and professionally done. Nik’s personal experience meant he was able to make recommendations we could trust, and that proved just right for us. All communications were clear and prompt. This is the second time we’ve used Audley (first was to Sri Lanka a few years back, also excellent). It is not the cheapest way to go about a holiday, but it has to be the least stressful. Overall a fabulous experience, and I wholeheartedly recommend Audley and Nik’s services!

Booked a trip prior to covid that was delayed and canceled but the deposit was held hostage. Used the deposit and additional monies to make it the trip of a lifetime. The referred resort was of the lowest expectations compared to what Audley explained. Returned and have requested full refund do to the lack of services promised but not delivered.

We have just returned from a 3 week trip to Peru and Ecuador and the Galapagos.
The trip was booked pre covid and Audley were excellent and rebooking and changing the itinerary several times. The trip we ended up with was excellent. The accommodation was great and all the hotels were of a high standard and well situated.
The guides we had were really good and all the logistics were taken care of from beginning to end. Due to strikes and unrest Audley quickly rescheduled us and the tour company in Peru were very efficient at changing the itinerary so we saw everything all be it in a different order.
The boat in the Galapagos was excellent (Endemic for 16 guests). Our last day in Guaquil was a bit of a disappointment but that was due to flights back to the UK.
