Frenchman Mikael Audebert, has been in the business of making dreams come true for hundreds of travelers since 2000. Born with the “itch” to travel and owner of vast experience in the travel industry, he has extensively explored the four corners of the earth and continues to do so several times a year, as leader of our Escorted Voyages Division.
Mikael moved to the U.S in 1992 to pursue a career in tourism. From the very beginning, he saw the end of the traditional travel agency coming and quickly developed a customized approach to more individually-tailored, travel planning and travel management for his clients. As a result, Mikael and Art In Voyage have received impressive recognition for professional excellence, including being named to the Orlando Business Journal’s “40 under 40”, Watermark Media's “Most Remarkable Person of the Year” for 2013, the Orlando Business Journal's 2012 list of “Businessmen to Watch” and has received numerous awards for his charity work in the Orlando., Florida marketplace.
And, when we say that we don’t send you anywhere that we haven’t been, we aren’t kidding! Mikael is so committed to vetting guest’ interests before booking them, he even personally checked out the paragliding launch pad at Six Senses' Zighy Bay in Oman. The view is one of peace, quiet and absolute beauty and the thrill is running toward the cliff for a 10-minute flight. It’s now his favorite spot, too!
