Some of the wonderful benefits of travelling with Abercrombie & Kent

Inspirational Experiences

When Geoffrey Kent started Abercrombie & Kent in 1962, he dreamt of being able to offer the most inspirational experiences in the world. He understood that travel should be amazing, exciting, intriguing, rejuvenating and memorable. That’s why he created a company staffed by passionate individuals who promise to meet and exceed expectation, creating unique and memorable experiences at each stage of travel.

Insider Access

With local guides on the ground in over 50 offices around the world, Abercrombie & Kent can provide you with exclusive insider access to the experiences that other travel companies simply can’t provide. So whether you want a tour of the Pyramids with your own Egyptologist, would like to try your hand at elephant polo in Jaipur or browse the private art collection of the Medicis’ in Florence, A & K experts will know just how to make it happen.

Responsible Tourism

Abercrombie & Kent is committed to responsible and ethical tourism.  A&K firmly believes that it is their duty to help protect the zoological and anthropological heritage that makes travel so worthwhile and rewarding.  Through the work of A&K Philanthropy,  sustainable conservation projects are supported  which help give local people a personal economic interest in preserving the unique qualities of their habitat and environment.
