A&K Celebrates 60 Years With “Greatest of All Trips” Itinerary

Abercrombie & Kent this year is celebrating its 60th anniversary. To celebrate milestone, A&K experts have selected iconic experiences representing the past six decades for the “Greatest of All Trips” (GOAT), an around-the-world itinerary showcasing 13 countries on all seven continents, encompassing national parks, UNESCO World Heritage sites, endangered animals and more.

East Africa

The adventure begins where A&K started in 1962 on a “Signature Great Migration Safari.” One of the wonders of the natural world, more than 1.4 million wildebeest, along with gazelles and zebra, stampede “Lion King”-style, following the rains from the Serengeti to the Masai Mara, making it the largest migration on Earth.  

Egypt: A Journey Back in Time

Egypt was A&K’s first destination outside sub-Saharan Africa. To guarantee the quality of the experience, A&K built the first “Sun Boat” and today its Sanctuary Nile River cruisers offer access to the country’s most famous sites, accompanied by the region's best Egyptologists on its “Signature Egypt & the Nile.”

The Treasures of India

Having played polo in India, A&K founder Geoffrey Kent knew many of the royal families of Rajasthan who welcomed guests and converted their palaces into extraordinary hotels, so India became A&K’s next destination. “Signature India & the Taj Mahal” opens doors to these artistic traditions, with opportunities to see the Taj Mahal at sunrise and sunset. The national parks are a “Jungle Book” of wildlife, including the elusive Bengal tiger.

Angkor Wat

A&K was one of the first tour operators in the region and today its local experts bring travelers on a personal journey to meet specialists in culture, food and history. Guests will discover centuries of art and architecture, cycle through rice fields and trek through valleys to understand the kingdom’s heritage and the historic links between Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Thailand on “Signature Indochina & Angkor Wat.”

Australia: Down Under

Sydney Harbor

Next up: Cruise Sydney harbor with a glass of Australia's finest wine. Dine in the desert under the stars, gazing up at Uluru (Ayers Rock), before rising early to watch the sunrise. Go walk about in a UNESCO World Heritage rainforest with a local bushman. A&K has been revealing hidden corners of Australia since 1986. The “GOAT” itinerary will include “Tailor Made Australia: Uluru, Lizard Island & Beyond.”

Machu Picchu: Path of the Incas

Travel by train through a narrow gorge surrounded by the snow-capped Andes, or trek the last portion of the Inca Trail, to the “Lost City” of Machu Picchu on “Tailor Made Peru: Path of the Incas.” Enjoy a private lecture with a scholar in Incan history before discovering the ruins in the company of a local expert guide. A&K’s long-standing roots allow guests an exclusive visit to a remote village to meet local residents for an inside look at daily life.

Antarctica: The White Continent

For more than 30 years, A&K has delivered travelers to a world where pristine ice and snow contrast starkly with the ever-changing sea and sky on a Luxury Expedition Cruise to Antarctica. Learn about the effects of rising global temperatures on “Antarctica: A Changing Landscape” with discussions, daily Zodiac excursions to the “White Continent” and chances to spot wildlife from penguin colonies to whales.

North America

Just as travelers were emerging from the pandemic, A&K expanded operations in the U.S. The growing demand for private bubbles inspired “Tailor Made National Parks by Private Air.” Experience Yosemite, the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone with expert local guides, flying by privately chartered air from one landscape to the next.


Take in three of Italy's most iconic cities from Venice to Florence and Rome on “Tailor Made Italy: The Vatican to Venice.” Expert A&K guides unlock the secrets of this historic Italian trio, where A&K has been taking guests beyond the guidebooks since 1997.
