A&K Previews 2018 Luxury Small Group Journeys: Enhanced Itineraries, More Dates and Seasonal Pricing
Luxury Small Group Journeys now include Breakfast in Bed
May 08, 2017
Abercrombie & Kent (A&K) has just released a Preview brochure devoted to select Luxury Small Group Journeys featuring 2018 dates and seasonal pricing for the most-requested destinations.
“We are seeing a strong resurgence in Africa,” explains A&K president Keith Baron. “India and Southeast Asia continue to show good growth and we have been taking goodwill deposits on dates into the first quarter of 2018, which makes the timing of this Preview brochure important for travel advisors. There is also tremendous interest in Australia & New Zealand, where early bookings are required as space sold out quickly last year.”
“By working closely with our local offices and our hotel partners, I am pleased to say that 65% of our top 20 Luxury Small Group Journeys are priced the same --- or lower – than 2017.”
Every Luxury from Start to Finish
Abercrombie & Kent Luxury Small Group Journeys are thoughtfully designed for just 18 guests. The small group size allows A&K to choose the best five-star hotels, camps and lodges – places that can’t handle larger groups – in one-of-a-kind locations. It opens up exclusive insider-access opportunities that are only possible for an intimate group, from private museum openings to meals with locals in their homes. There is more one-on-one interaction with the Resident Tour Director®, who shares local expertise and beyond-the-guidebook knowledge.
Each journey features locally-inspired moments, such as the opportunity to Ride Like a Local to explore a charming neighborhood by rickshaw or enjoy a Scenic Sundowner cocktail in an unforgettable location as the sun sets. Travellers’ Valet laundry service midway through the journey is a client favorite. A&K’s Travelling Bell Boy® transfers luggage from hotel to hotel.
The newest A&K amenity for 2018 is the ultimate convenience of Breakfast in Bed. Twice during each Luxury Small Group Journey, guests can choose to enjoy a continental breakfast in their hotel room.
New for 2018
South America is attracting increasing attention with the establishment of vast national parks in Patagonia funded by private donors. This has focused international attention on the dramatic landscapes at the southern end of the Andes, putting this region at the top of many “where to go next” lists.
A&K’s new Majestic Chile & Argentina highlights the region’s amazing diversity, from a private wine sampling in Chile, to the scenic Lake District in Pucón, to Argentina's Alpine "Little Switzerland," Bariloche, and the vibrant birthplace of the tango, Buenos Aires. Enjoy panoramic views of snow-capped volcanos and ancient forests, while traversing the rugged Andes on the Seven Lakes Road. Savor exquisite wines and learn about Chilean cuisine at a Chef’s Table culinary experience during an exclusive visit to a family vineyard. 10 days from $8,495.
Special Offer: Luxury Expedition Cruising to Antarctica
Antarctica is unparalleled, otherworldly, and powerfully moving in a way that is almost impossible to describe. Recent reports on the effects of rising sea levels and water temperatures are inspiring more and more adventurers to journey to their seventh continent.
A&K’s Antarctica, South Georgia & the Falkland Islands (December 12-28, 2017) is a panoramic voyage that includes wildlife-rich South Georgia and the unspoiled terrain of the Falklands, home of the regal king penguin, Southern elephant seals and wandering albatross, before cruising south to the White Continent. Learn about the fascinating life of the great explorer, Ernest Shackleton, at his gravesite. 17 days from $20,995 per person, double occupancy (save up to $5,000 per person on a Category 1-3 cabin when booked by May 31, 2017).
