Reviews

I have travelled with TravelsWithAudrey before and I must say, Audrey never disappoints. The accommodation was, as I prefer, a well-situated. clean, comfortable boutique hotel with great staff all around. Loved the group activities and appreciated the balance of independent time to get out and explore. But what I truly appreciated was not only being shown the most well-known areas of Venice but also many lesser-known areas. Despite having been in Venice twice before, it was on this trip I began to understand the people of this great city and the magnitude of their accomplishments so much more. Audrey took us to Murano and Burano and in passing, she pointed out an area that was like what the early settlers would have come upon. To then see what the Venetians built over the centuries, to understand why it was built up the way it was and to appreciate the challenges they faced gave me a deeper understanding and appreciation for what I was experiencing. I saw "mastery" of so many skills that had eluded me in the past. Audrey had many suggestions and insights she shared that allowed us to become familiar with this amazing city without the constant distractions of the crowds. For example, she encouraged us to get up at dawn and go to San Marco Square to take photographs of the people in costume. I had taken photos of people in costume walking the streets during the day, It wasn’t until I went at dawn that I experienced the “magic” of Carnival. Audrey had told us about those who rent costumes, those who spend the whole year working on making their costumes and how to spot the difference. To take photographs of people who take their costume making to a whole different level, against the foggy backdrop of the city was beyond words. Thank you, Audrey, for this culturally rich, eye opening view of Venice!

Awesome is the word I would use to describe our trip to Italy. My husband and I enjoyed a private 8-day tour of Piedmont with Audrey as our planner and guide. She did a superb job of getting to know our likes and desires, and transforming them into the trip of a lifetime. Audrey's expansive personal knowledge of the area enabled her to create a very personal and unique experience for us. We drank wine with winemakers, ate meat with the butcher, met the sheep from which our cheese was produced - - and the list goes on. Through her carefully curated and well-planned itinerary, we were able to gain a true appreciation of the area's culture, people, and cuisine. It was an outstannding experience and one I would highly recommend.
