Explore the World With A&K Connections Group Journeys
We traveled on an A&K Connections journey to Spain last year (see our video) and had a fabulous experience. If you’re looking to explore an exciting destination nearly anywhere around the world, we highly recommend you strongly consider an A&K Connections journey.
Connections Worldwide Group Journeys
A&K operates 50 independent offices around the world, employing hundreds of full-time local experts. Thanks to these long-established local ties, A&K can connect you to people and sites far beyond the reach of the average traveller. Imagine attending an exclusive flamenco performance in a private Spanish home, visiting a Maasai village in Tanzania or learning the art of dumpling making in a Chinese family’s kitchen. Through unique encounters like these, you forge unforgettable connections to your destination’s culture and traditions — a connection only made possible through genuine local knowledge and experience. Our expanded 2014 portfolio offers journeys to ten new destinations, 20 of which are new — on six continents, as well as a brand-new line of inspiring European River Cruise Journeys starting at $3,450.

Unmatched A&K Service and On-the-Ground Expertise
Backing every Connections journey is the foremost team of travel specialists in the world. Working out of 50 offices worldwide, A&K experts know each destination inside and out – often because they have lived their entire lives there. Their expertise comes not from the Internet, but from decades of dedicated, firsthand exploration.
Great Value from Beginning to End
Connections travel delivers what you value most in a vacation: a true understanding of your destination’s culture, history and natural beauty, with an authentic local expert leading the way. Our commitment to great value shines through in every aspect of your journey, from the hotels hand-selected by our local experts to the Tour Directors who make sure you get the most from every stop on your itinerary.
Intimate Groups of Just 24 Guests
Our journeys are created to connect you to your destination. That’s why Connections journeys are limited to just 24 guests on all journeys. Stay in intimate upscale lodgings or aboard stylish modern river cruise vessels and explore sites that are closed to larger groups, while enjoying more interaction with your A&K Tour Director.
Hotels Selected by A&K Experts
Your accommodations are more than a place to lay your head at night: they are an important way of experiencing the character of your destination. Ranging from spacious resorts to boutique lodgings, the hotels and lodges on Connections journeys are chosen by A&K experts for their amenities, local character and proximity to the places that make your destination unique.
New for 2014: All-New Local Connections
We want you to return home from your journey feeling as though you made a unique, authentic connection to the places you visited. That is why we have established six categories of Local Connections, each reflecting a distinctive aspect of the local culture. Market Connections introduce you to the crafts and produce markets where locals gather to shop, barter and socialize. Neighborhood Connections feature walking tours that immerse you in a specific locale. Sample the local flavors on a Culinary Connection, or discover traditional handicraft s with an Artisan Connection. Musical Connections feature private performances with local musicians who also happen to be expert ambassadors for their musical culture and heritage. Lastly, visits to sacred places and meetings with devout individuals offer the opportunity for a moving Spiritual Connection.
