They gave us top notch hotels in great locations throughout. All the flights and transfers were arranged so all we had to worry about was getting up and making sure we had our passports.. Holiday was amazing. Saw all The sights there was to see and had at least A week uninterrupted beach time to relax.. Holiday of a lifetime!!

Audley travel... It's simple, compare they're quote with someone else And they will probably be a little dearer yes but compare they're perfectly presented itenary (which must take half a day just to create) and review they're hotels and they will be better than your budget quote! I have done a similiar 3 week Far East trip 2 years previous ( incorporating Thailand, Borneo and Hong Kong) and it was £800 a head cheaper! So I struggled initially to accept audleys qoute....but at the creation stage of holiday whilst discussing With cate I knew they were a different league!! When I broke down the two trips I realised that Audley wernt only providing much better standard of accommodation but they Had more destinations, hence more flights and many more private transfers.. We had one issue with one transfer not turning up and they neglected To mention that one airline didn't take 30kg luggage as standard Without charging a fee....now I only mention this as a positive Because on return, they contacted us within two days and said that they Noticed that a transfer let us down so the refund for that is already being Processed and when I mentioned the luggage they said they will refund extra fee!! I didn't have to complain or moan, they just took it upon themselves.. I didn't think customer service like that existed anymore!! Obviously if you are just having 7-10 days in the sun then Audley is probably not of benefit to you but if you want a tailor made multi centre tour then I would strongly advise anyone to contact these people for a qoute first.... Even if you get many qoutes slighty cheaper afterwards, you will be impressed by this firm from the onset and nothing will seem as good!! And I think the same can be said about your oncoming holiday!!! Can't recommend highly enough

Wonderful Indian Experience

Delhi, Agra and Jaipur all in a week, saw nearly everything and had it all explained expertly. Fabulous trip.

It was our first Audley trip, and will not be our last. Everything was handled perfectly and we were treated like royalty everywhere we went.

A fantastic insight into South East Asia

We spent 3 weeks travelling from Northern Thailand, through scenic tranquil Laos, onto the frenetic city of Hanoi. A slightly slower pace for a few days in the beautiful Hoi An, before returning to hustle and bustle in Saigon. Two very special days on a converted rice barge on the Mekong were followed by a speed boat trip up the Mekong to Phnom Penh. The killing fields and S21 were harrowing trips but so interesting and necessary to understanding ...

We spent 3 weeks travelling from Northern Thailand, through scenic tranquil Laos, onto the frenetic city of Hanoi.

Two very special days on a converted rice barge on the Mekong were followed by a speed boat trip up the Mekong to Phnom Penh. The killing fields and S21 were harrowing trips but so interesting and necessary to understanding Cambodia. Finally 3 days exploring the most incredible sites in Siem Reap. We were guided through each section of our trip by some incredibly knowledgable guides who were great company and driven by excellent drivers. The fellow travellers we met en route, often several times, were often fellow Audley clients and it was good fun comparing notes. We made some good friends amongst these.

Excellent communication in the planning process. Good information re preparing for holiday, assistance with visas etc. They delivered a truly amazing holiday which was very well organised, everything flowed well and went to plan. We felt well supported and comfortable during the whole experience.
