I've dreamed of visiting Japan since I was a little girl. I reached out to Audley for a brochure on a whim, but when I heard from their Japan specialist I knew I just had to go. From the initial planning, it was always so fun talking to our specialist. It never felt like I was being pressured, it felt so relaxed as if I was talking to a friend. They handled everything and I just got to enjoy the excitement and not worry about anything.
When my husband and I arrived in Japan, there was a representative waiting for us to show us around and take us to a car waiting at the airport. As this was our first international trip, we were tired after the long 13+ hour flight. It was nice to not have to worry about navigating our way in a foreign country and have the convenience of being taken straight to our hotel. We had guided tours, as well as time to explore independently. It was nice to know that we were never alone and that help was always just a phone call away if we needed it, as well as feeling independent to change our plans as we wanted. We visited Tokyo, Yudanaka, Kyoto, Nara, Miyajima, Hiroshima, Osaka, and back to Tokyo.
We got to have so many extraordinary experiences and the landscapes were just gorgeous! The people were so nice and very helpful when we got turned around. I highly recommend Audley. They treat you like family, the entire experience is really so lighthearted and fun, and they plan trips entirely around you want to see, do, and even recommend things you may not have thought of on your own. We will most definitely be returning for another trip in the future!

Audley gave us plenty of assistance in completing our itinerary to the Galapagos. We look forward to our 2019 trip. The Audley expert on Ecuador gave us plenty of guidance.

    About Audley Travel

    Founded in 1996, Audley grew out of the desire to help travelers see the world in their own way, using expertly crafted individual journeys.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    With Audley you have the peace of mind that comes from speaking directly to a travel specialist who works to create an itinerary specifically designed to you. They consider all factors from your interests to the budget you’re looking to spend. They see the process through from inception to departure, and are available for questions all throughout your trip.

    Who Travels With Them?

    Travelers interested in working with a travel specialist who will help make your trip personal and individual.

    Where Do They Operate?

    Audley creates their tailor-made itineraries for over 75 destinations on every continent.

    Why Travel With Them?

    Audley presents the inspiration, allowing you decide the type of trip you want to have. Then they take it a step further, allowing you to fully customize and personalize your experience. Dedicated travel specialists are available to help you along every step of the way. No matter your budget or interests, each trip is designed with absolute quality in mind.

    About Elite Luxury Kenya

    Also called “Kenya Safaris” this company is very locally minded, offering boutique travel experiences including honeymoon, and fully customized travel.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Elite Luxury Kenya provides a travel experience in Kenya that will introduce travelers to another side of the African safari. No frills, yet comfortable, the travel options seem to distinctly be designed to showcase traveling beyond the safari. Though this is not to say safari’s are not a focus. Rather for them, a safari holiday with them means you’ll get a very diverse tour in terms of activities, excursions, and accommodations.

    Who Travels With Them?

    Those seeking an affordable Kenya, Tanzania, and / or Uganda experience. Their tours are private and completely customizable. As a smaller company travelers may find that accommodations are less luxury in feel than an established luxury safari brand, however you will be very comfortable and well taken care of. And if local touches are important to you, these will make your trip especially enjoyable.

    Where Do They Operate?

    Despite what the name suggests, Elite Luxury Kenya also provides tours in Tanzania and Uganda. Part of their mission is to introduce travelers to Kenya and these other destinations beyond the typical safari. To that end you may enjoy a beach holiday, gorilla trek, or hike up Mount Kenya.

    Why Travel With Them?

    Kenya based and small, traveling with them is a way to support local business and in return have a fully local experience. You will get a sense of the “real” Kenya, while also experiencing all the classic safari moments.

    Tours are led by local knowledgeable guides, and your trip is designed by experts for a personalized touch - this helps ensure your trip to Kenya fulfills everything you want to see.
