What Kind of Traveller Are You?

Take our short quiz to see if custom private travel is for you.

Tailor Made private travel allows you to experience the world entirely on your own terms: where to visit, when to go, and what to do when you get there. A&K’s Luxury Tailor Made Travel brochure is designed to help you create that personalized trip of a lifetime. Get to know each inspiring destination, and then take your pick from an array of inspiring ways to get there.

Destination Guides

Luxury Tailor Made Travel is like a virtual tour guide — the next–best thing to having an A&K expert sitting across from you. Each Destination Guide walks you through the must–see places in a particular region, as well as some sites not necessarily on every traveller’s radar, but which our experts have highlighted for their distinctive character. A map clearly indicates each location, allowing you to begin sketching your Tailor Made itinerary as you read. We even note how many days we recommend to experience each site to the fullest.

Once you’ve assembled a rough idea of where you want to go, it’s time to consider your options. A&K makes private travel planning easy with two convenient ways to build your itinerary.

Tailor Made Routes

As you read about each region, you will notice brief sample itineraries near the end of each section. These Tailor Made Routes are provided by A&K experts as a framework for you to build upon in constructing your own private journey. Locations in the itinerary are described in the Destination Guide, allowing you to quickly gauge which proposed journey suits your needs. Working from these recommendations, you can consult an A&K specialist or your travel professional to begin the detailed planning of your perfect Tailor Made journey.

    • A birthday, anniversary or other special occasion you may be celebrating on your trip
    • How much sightseeing you like to do versus time to relax and unwind

  4. You or your travel professional work with your consultant to refine your Tailor Made journey so that it perfectly reflects your interests, allotted time and budget.
