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.

Ewan was fantastic in helping me arrange a US trip for me and my Fiancée. Gave me all the top spots and recommendations on what to do, when all I really had to start with was a broad idea of where I wanted to go.
The locations were perfect and the activities made the experience extra special.
I would definitely recommend Audley and especially Ewan to anyone looking for a more bespoke experience.

Unfortunately, I can't review our TRAVEL experience with Audley Travel, but can comment on their non-responsiveness.

I contacted Audley as they came recommended by Wilderness Travel, the company we traveled with previously.

I left multiple messages for their regional specialist Adam -- voice messages through his co-workers (Alec and Jacky), email, website inquiry -- he didn't reply. I finally spoke to another specialist at the office (Lydia) and pressed her to not take yet another message for Adam, but tell me honestly if they are interested in working on our itinerary or we should move on. She then told me that they are busy. Well, wish they had some integrity to tell me on the first call, so I didn't have to loose time on trying to contact their "specialist".

p.s. They sent their automated marketing message with ALL their trips listed in response to my website inquiry. In this message they included: "When you are ready...". I replied that, indeed, we are ready, as I explained in my inquiry -- ready, know where and when we want to travel and are inquiring if you are interested in creating a private journey for us. No reply! Instead, they sent another marketing message the next day (and after Lydia already told us that they are very busy and won't be able to make reservations.) The second marketing message had no option to "unsubscribe". Again, I replied to that message and asked them to stop spamming me with marketing materials.

UPDATE: Audley's Client Experience Executive reached out to me in response to this review. She apologized profusely and wanted me to know that my "feedback is being heard". She said that she spoke with the employees' manager to "ensure mistakes like this don’t happen again and provide additional training to support their growth." She also promised to ask the marketing to delete my name from their marketing list. I took her at her word.

I don't know if this interaction with the client experience executive convinced me to seek Audley's services in the future, but I promised her to include in my review this "status update".

Unfortunately Audley Travel are so arrogant they don’t believe anyone else can provide a better holiday at lower cost

I’m booking for South Africa and they simply can’t accept that another company can provide a better itinerary at a lower price - even to the point of asking for the other quote and saying this is usual practice in the industry!! ( rubbish) . Totally unprofessional behaviour. Furthermore , sending me emails knocking my choice of hotel and safari park while at the same time promoting hotels that clearly have issues as evidenced by poor ratings on the major sites

I use another well known travel provider that actually provide high quality at a decent price

Audley are simply interested in selling the highest price hotels etc that give them the maximum profit rather than what is right for you

They love themselves and keep on saying nonsense such as “ I’m really pleased with what I’ve come up with and hope you are too “

They need to get real

I won’t reveal the name of the agent dealing with me as that’s probably unfair

Where do I start, a trip of a life time, with experiences and memories for all my family. Every detail of our amazing journey in Cambodia & Vietnam was exceptional. The key was the guides provided, local, knowledgable and flexible, they all became friends over our stay. Engaging in the culture, experiencing life from food to travel, to luxury and amazing people. I would like to thank Mark Hotham for creating such special trip with many memories, to all the guides, Sophea, Tien & Tan and the drivers. Will I be booking another trip with Audley - yes, my only problem is what location

We were planning a special family holiday in Thailand to celebrate our Golden Wedding anniversary. We were a party of 11, coming from the UK and Australia at slightly different times.
Mark Hotham at Audley Travel helped us to put together the holiday of a lifetime. He helped us through the complexity of different start dates, advised on a suitable hotel and arranged a terrific trip to the Elephant Hills camp in the jungle.
The arrangements worked splendidly, the hotel in Khao Lak was first class and the Elephant Hills trip was magical.
Nothing was ever too much trouble for Mark and every effort was made to deliver the holiday we were looking for.
We have already recommended Audley travel to our friends and they will be our first choice of travel agency from now on.

This was our first time using Audley to organise a holiday for us and Ewan did a simply fantastic job. From the very first contact call, where we explained what we hoped to see and do, to wishing us 'Bon voyage' as we stepped on to the plane, Ewan was always there, helping and guiding. He selected exactly the sort of hotels and experiences we were looking for as well as the flights and car hire in one seamless operation. We will definitely be using Audley again !
