2019 Small Group Journeys

A new collection of shared adventures to the world’s most extraordinary destinations – emerging and eternal.

Introducing the 2019 Small Group Journeys Portfolio

We’re pleased to introduce our new Small Group Journeys portfolio for 2019 – an incredible collection of shared adventures to many of the world’s most extraordinary destinations.

The new portfolio includes:

Luxury Small Group Journeys – a curated selection of our most popular journeys, the benchmark for comfort and service in small group travel, to the perennial greatest hits of luxury travel. These journeys are led by expert local Resident Tour Directors, and feature multiple departure dates throughout the year and most have optional pre-tour and/or post-tour group extensions to nearby or related destinations. Luxurious additional touches to make your journey even more memorable include: - A Travelling Bellboy: Simply leave your packed bags in your room when you leave and find them waiting inside your room at the next hotel. - The Traveller's Valet: A complimentary laundry service at the midpoint of your journey. - Breakfast in Bed: Sometimes it’s nice to just relax in the morning, so twice during your Luxury Small Group Journey you can opt for a continental breakfast served in the comfort of your hotel room. 

Maximum 18 guests, guaranteed to depart with first two guests booked.


Limited Edition Small Group Journeys – a new collection of journeys creatively designed for more intrepid travellers who really want to get under the skin of a destination and are open to more off-the-beaten track destinations and out-of-the-box experiences. These journeys include the very best ideas and favourite destinations, accommodations and experiences of our Journey Designers. Each features a fine balance of guided activity and breathing room, the time and space for more exploration and self-discovery in a destination. On selected limited journeys, our expert local hosts (the Resident Tour Directors) are joined by special guest hosts, delivering entertaining and charismatic travel companions to provide you with strong connections to the destinations, from culture to conservation. Most of these journeys have only two or three departures next year, and they are likely to fill fast, so don't miss out on your opportunity for 2019!

Maximum 18 guests, guaranteed to depart with first two guests booked.

 

Connections Boutique Journeysgreat value authentic travel experiences, led by an A&K Resident Tour Director and featuring insider access moments, meaningful interactions with local people, along with the hospitality of hand-selected boutique hotels in fascinating neighbourhoods and special activities and dining experiences.

Maximum 24 guests.

 

Marco Polo Journeys journeys to more off-beat, exotic and/or one-off destinations and events, rich in experiences and A&K insider-access - what we call the luxury of access. Led by A&K's most revered Resident Tour Directors, Marco Polo Journeys venture farther off the beaten track and deeper into special interests, sometimes forgoing a creature comfort for the exclusivity of experience afforded by the road less taken.

Maximum 18 guests.

 

Wings Over the World Journeys – amazing luxury journeys by private air, these journeys combine A&K’s timeless luxury small group travel experience with the time-saving convenience of privately chartered flights between destinations, allowing you to visit remote places with less time spent getting there. Relax with hassle-free flight departures and arrivals, avoiding waits at airports due to restrictive commercial aviation schedules. Privately chartered air travel also means you often fly from separate terminals, with fewer crowds and faster security procedures. In the air, the experienced crews aboard our chartered planes offer you personalised in-flight service, in a comfortable, sociable atmosphere. Every hour saved is better enjoyed exploring alongside an A&K Resident Tour Director, relaxing in luxurious five-star accommodations and experiencing the incomparable advantage of insider access only possible with Abercrombie & Kent.

Maximum 20 guests.


Enjoy exploring! And stay tuned for more 2019 Small Group Journeys to be added to the portfolio in coming months.
