Unmatched Insider Access
Imagine exploring the otherwise off-limits tomb of Seti I in Egypt or enjoying a private lunch in a 17th-century hacienda, hosted by the owners. Thanks to our long-established local ties, A&K can offer access to people and sites far beyond the reach of the average traveller.
The Finest Local Experts
Your A&K Tour Director brings these extraordinary sites and activities to life with one-of-a-kind local insight. Assisting the Tour Director are local guides who lend each journey additional expertise and insight that only come from a longtime native.
History of Recognition
Year after year, A&K is the recipient of notable accolades and praise. We were named World’s Leading Luxury Tour Operator at the World Travel Awards; Best Luxury Tour Operator by both Luxury Travel Advisor and the readers of Travel Weekly; and – for the 13th consecutive year – Best Tour Operator in Africa by Recommend magazine.
Intimate Groups of Just 18 Guests
Our journeys are created to connect you to your destination. That's why our luxury small group journeys are limited to just 18 guests on land and 24 on family journeys.

Ride Like a Local
New in 2014, most journeys now include an excursion that features native transportation. Get an authentic and inspiring taste of local life when you see it from a three-wheeled tuk-tuk in India or from the seat of a pedal-powered cyclo in Ho Chi Minh City.
