Touring Spain With Abercrombie & Kent

Our Abercrombie & Kent Travel Itinerary

When I think of group travel, the first thing that comes to my mind is my wife’s blue-haired aunts hopping a bus for Branson, Missouri.  You know, crowded buses, truck stop restroom breaks, and lots of snoring from one point to the other.

However, when Abercrombie & Kent (A&K) invited us along for a 7-night group travel outing to Spain, we absolutely jumped at the offer.

As an American baby boomer traveler, when I hear the words Abercrombie & Kent, I think three things: British company, luxury travel, and African safaris.

Geoffrey Kent and his parents, Valerie and Colonel John Kent, founded Abercrombie & Kent in 1962 with little more than a Bedford truck and a sterling silver ice bucket.

Today, A&K runs 50 full-time offices worldwide, staffed by more than 2,300 people; it also operates its own safari camps and Nile cruise ships, and maintains a fleet of customized safari vehicles. Its reputation allows A&K travellers private, sometimes exclusive access to museums, archaeological sites and cultural attractions around the world.

In other words, perhaps more than any other company, A&K has written the book on luxury, world-wide adventures.

A&K has written the book on luxury, world-wide adventures!

And now, fifty years after pioneering the modern luxury adventure, Abercrombie & Kent introduces a new approach to group travel: Connections by Abercrombie & Kent.

The basic idea is to take A&K’s renowned experience in luxury travel, offer it to small groups (only 24-28 guests), tap into their unmatched network of 50 offices around the world, and create a luxury small group travel experiences unparalleled in the world of travel.

Further still, they’re doing this all at an unbeatable price.  How do they do that?
