Abercrombie & Kent Offers Local Luxury Tours

Grand Miramar All Luxury Suites Pool

On the heels of Virtuoso Travel Week, where Matthew Upchurch redefined luxury as personalized travel catering to the individual, Abercrombie & Kent has debuted new journeys for 2014, focusing on local as the new luxury.

A&K is adding 10 new programs to its 2014 Connections portfolio featuring 22 journeys, along with a brand-new line of European river cruises. On these departures, intimacy is the name of the game, with group sizes capping at 24 guests. 

Some of the possibilities include browsing the Spice Bazaar in Istanbul, accompanied by a local resident who introduces you to the city's best baklava; chatting one-on-one with a monk over lunch in Myanmar; or learning about South Africa's apartheid history as you walk through the prison where Nelson Mandela was held.
