Luxury travelers are planning their vacations farther in advance and Abercrombie & Kent (A&K) is responding, revealing its 2019 dates and prices for the company’s most-requested journeys.
In the company’s Preview Brochure, travelers will find 21 Luxury Small Group Journeys that include a new itinerary to the Galapagos and Machu Picchu as well as a new, multi-country journey to Southeast Asia.
“In recent years, we have seen a significant increase in how far in advance guests are booking – from around 6 months in 2014 to nearly eight months this year,” explains Abercrombie & Kent USA president Keith Baron.
“Certain destinations in Africa and the Middle East are seeing a dramatic increase in interest, resulting in group departures quickly selling out,” Baron added. “By booking early, guests have first choice of preferred travel dates and with A&K’s Guaranteed Departures, the peace of mind that comes from knowing that every Luxury Small Group Journey is guaranteed to operate with a minimum of two guests.”
A&K Luxury Small Group Journeys take just 18 guests and provide exclusive access to hotels, tours, museums and more. Guests enjoy additional benefits such as special flight routings, longer stops in must-see sites and multiple visits to iconic places–such as visiting the Taj Mahal at both sunrise and sunset.
The new Wonders of the Galapagos & Machu Picchu combines a four-night cruise onboard La Pinta with a visit to the ancient Inca city and the Sacred Valley. The entire journey is 12 days, from $11,695 per person, double occupancy.
Images of Indochina & Angkor Wat is a revised Southeast Asia itinerary. The revamped journey adds Luang Prabang, Laos, to a trip that travels through Vietnam and Cambodia, including Ha Long Bay, Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, Cu Chi Tunnels, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and more. The trip is 13 days and starts at $7,695 per person, double occupancy.
Guests booking early can save on safaris in East Africa. Travelers can save up to $750 on select dates of The Great Migration Safari in Style, Kenya & Tanzania Wildlife Safari, and Tanzania Safari in Style when booked by July 31, 2018.
