Intimate Groups of Just 24 Guests

Small groups give you more opportunity to get to know your Resident Tour Director, as well as your fellow guests. They also allow us access to places and events larger groups can’t manage. Other travel companies’ groups average 40 guests or more; only A&K offers intimate group travel at an exceptional value.
