This is the first time we've used Audley Travel to organise a holiday and it was amazing. The support and advice from the initial enquiry through to the final itenary was superb. Caroline Revnell was really knowledgable and guided us to make decisions.
During the trip we were welcomed at every destination and the local guides were really informative. Thank you to everyone who helped us at the start and throughout the trip.
We would definitely recommend Audley Travel and will use them again for future adventures.

My husband and I booked a safari to Tanzania in 2019, due to leave in June of 2020. Of course, Covid hit and we had to postpone. Again in June of 2021 we had to postpone due to Covid and moving across country. We finally went on our safari in June of 2022.

We travel all over the world, but this trip was the best we ever took. Not only because of the amazing destination, but because Audley Travel went so above and beyond to make our travels outstanding! We had the most wonderful time and every detail was planned and executed flawlessly. Our travel advisor, David, kept in contact with the suppliers to insure we were at each destination safely and timely. All of the people that assisted in our trip were great, friendly and accommodating. I would not hesitate to use Audley Travel for any other trip we plan in the future.

I cannot recommend Audley Travel enough, from our very first contact, through to satisfactorily resolving an issue with one the providers at the end of our holiday. Our Travel Consultant, Lucy, listened to our initial requests from the very first contact and put together a superb trip to Canada and Alaska, that was tailor made for us on our honeymoon. Lucy's tenacity in dealing the issue we had (not Audley's fault in any way) to a successful conclusion after our holiday was over, speaks volumes about her personally and about Audley Travel. We will be back for our next adventure!

Cannot recommend Audley travel highly enough. Every detail of our trip was taken care of with a few added extras thrown in as a surprise during our stay. It took all the hassle out of organising our safari and stay on the Kenyan coast and the arrangements were seamless.

From start to finish, Lucy at Audley planned the perfect trip to Canada for us. She managed to pack in so many fantastic experiences and excellent accommodation options to fit within our budget and suit the age of the kids. It was so stress free to have the trip planned for us and know that there was not going to be any glitches along the way. The Audley itinerary was our bible and was superbly detailed with extra information about where to eat, timings and local knowledge. Lucy’s care and attention in talking things through before the trip helped with a lot of the admin issues and pre-empted problems with sound advice. It was an amazing, memorable holiday. Thank you so much!!!
