Frequently Asked Questions

Who will be my travelling companions on the tour?

The beauty of taking a holiday with us is you’ll have the opportunity to meet and travel with people from all over the globe.

Can I join the tour once it has departed?

It is important to adhere to departure times while on tour for the comfort of everyone on-board, and to make sure no one misses out on the planned experiences. The coach will not be able to wait for you, and in some instances, if you miss a departure time you will need to make your own way to the next destination to re-join the tour.

Do you operate a “single share” option and how does it work?

AAT Kings operated Guided Holidays have competitive single supplement rates available if you prefer to confirm your own room. Or we can match you to share with a guest of the same gender at no extra cost. If we fail to match you, we will accommodate you in a single room at no extra cost.

How long has the tour company been trading?

Over 100 years

What documents will I receive before I travel?

We will email your documents to you approximately four weeks before your departure date provided you have completed your pre trip registration using the My Travel Portal. If you’ve booked through a travel agent, your documents will be emailed directly to your agent.
