The U.K.-based Audley Travel, known for creating bespoke vacations in more than 80 countries, recently launched in the U.S., with a new website and an office in Boston. Every trip is completely tailor-made with the help of what the company calls Country Specialists, who act as concierges and hand pick experiences, hotels, restaurants, guides, and more.
The best part? Audley Travel can work with budgets as low as $3,000 (though the average trip for two costs between $10,000 and $15,000). They also just announced a partnership with Smithsonian Journeys, which is known for its small group tours. Together, the two brands will provide access to more than 150 destinations, and itineraries will follow the Audley philosophy of being private and customized.
