Luxury Journeys by Private Air
Wings Over the World journeys dissolve the distances between destinations, allowing you to see and experience more than you ever thought possible on a single itinerary. Enjoy signature A&K benefits including a small group size, remarkable five-star accommodations rarely available to larger groups, and more time exploring alongside your Resident Tour Director®. Discover a higher caliber of small-group journey combining flexibility, convenience and incomparable insider access, one that shows off each destination at its luxurious, inspiring best.
Wings Over the World Journeys: Comfort in the Air, Ease on the Ground
Relax with hassle-free flight departures and arrivals, avoiding waits at airports due to restrictive commercial aviation schedules. Privately chartered air travel also means you often fly from separate terminals, allowing for fewer crowds and faster security procedures. And your dedicated flight crew aboard your chartered aircraft offers you superb personalized service in the air and on the ground, in a comfortable, sociable atmosphere.
The A&K Difference
Why Local Access Matters & an Unmatched Global Presence
Experience unfettered access to the authentic heart and soul of your destination, visiting people and sites far beyond the reach of the average traveller. With over 55 offices in more than 30 countries around the world, we orchestrate your journey with precision and flexibility down to the last detail, from the seamless flow of your itinerary to a prompt response to an unanticipated request.
Resident Tour Directors with Deep Local Ties
Our Resident Tour Directors have lived for decades, or even their entire lives, in the places you visit, and offer you insights into culture, history and wildlife that only a local can. Overseeing your entire journey, they accompany you every day, sharing a beyond-the-guidebook understanding of daily life that stems from their own genuine curiosity — and connecting you to the people, places and animals you encounter in a way you’ll never forget.
Ideal Group Sizes
With as few as 12 and no more than 18 guests, Wings Over the World journeys feature exclusive insider-access opportunities only available to a small travel group. Whether an illuminating curator-led museum visit or a delicious dinner with a local family around their own dining table, your small-group size enhances your travel experience from beginning to end.
Simply the Best Hotels, Period
When considering a hotel, our experts look at more than just the rooms, handpicking only the most remarkable accommodations combining superior service, local character and unanticipated five-star luxuries. We also select one-of-a-kind locations close to the places you dream of seeing, and among the region’s best properties.
Safety You Can Trust
Your well-being and safety are always our first priorities. Our global presence allows us to monitor local dynamics and manage your safety and security 24/7. Should a situation arise, A&K has the resources at the ready to allow you to safely continue on your journey.
Every Luxury from Start to Finish
Immersive Moments That Inspire You
On a Wings Over the World luxury journey, you experience locally inspired moments crafted by our experts, such as a charming neighborhood visit by horse-drawn carriage as you Ride Like a Local, or a refreshing cocktail — our Scenic Sundowner — set in a breathtaking location at sunset.
New! Design Your Day®
You can now personalize your travel experience on a select day of your journey with our Design Your Day feature. Choose from three to five diverse options, from relaxing to active, selecting the activity best suited to your interests — perhaps a holistic wellness treatment at a spa or a scenic adventure through rich, verdant valleys.
Unique & Varied Dining Experiences
We provide you with the perfect mix of planned group meals — including celebratory welcome and farewell dinners — and mealtimes left unscheduled. You’ll also experience favorite local restaurants; join our Chef’s Table experience, where you may participate in a culinary demonstration; and enjoy an à la carte dinner on your own and at your leisure, on us.
Travelling Bell Boy® & Traveller's Valet®
With A&K’s exclusive Travelling Bell Boy service, simply leave your packed bags behind in your room as you walk out the door, and find them waiting inside your room at your next accommodation. A&K also offers you convenient Traveller’s Valet: exclusive, complimentary laundry service provided once per journey, to help keep your luggage light.
Complimentary Connectivity & Breakfast in Bed
Enjoy complimentary Internet access (subject to availability in some remote regions) during hotel stays and cruises with overnight stays. And twice during your journey, you can opt for continental breakfast, served to you in the comfort of your hotel room.
