Cox and Kings
We are the world’s longest established travel company, arranging award-winning small-group tours and private journeys to the world's most captivating destinations. We also offer expert-led arts and culture tours, group tours specially designed for solo travellers, and create adventurous tailor-made itineraries. Our roots stretch all the way back to its establishment by Richard Cox on 21st July 1758. Our company has evolved from its original purpose providing logistical support for army regiments, through banking and shipping, to its current role making often complex arrangements for discerning travellers. Today, we continue to flourish as a UK based tour operator. Wherever you choose to travel with us, you can travel with confidence. With over 260 years of expertise, you can rest assured that you’ll be safe in the hands of a dedicated team of regional experts and the best support in country. With the experience to create travel arrangements of the highest calibre, we offer excellent value for money. Our tours strike a balance between visiting iconic landmarks and revealing lesser-known gems; glimpsing layers of history and getting an authentic taste of modern life; and filling days with exceptional experiences combined with enough time to unwind or explore independently. Enjoy the savings that group travel affords, while exploring with a small group of people who share your passion for seeing new sights. To enhance your enjoyment of the tour, we like to keep our groups genuinely small and manageable. Therefore, numbers are normally restricted to a maximum of 18 and an average of only 14 guests. Our general interest group tours uncover the best the world has to offer, whether that means a destination’s fabulous heritage, charming cultural traditions, mesmerising landscapes or enthralling wildlife. We also specialise in group tours for solo travellers with no supplements on our dedicated Solo Travellers tours, and limited No Single Supplement places available across our full collection. Sustainable and responsible travel is important, and as part of the Abercrombie & Kent family, we work with Abercrombie & Kent Philanthropy (AKP) who partner with more than 40 local grassroots projects that positively impact local communities. In uncertain times, we, above all else, are a company you can trust. Fully ABTA and ATOL protected, our team also offer 24/7 emergency support. We offer one of the most flexible new booking policies on the market and our strict health and hygiene commitments have earned us a World Travel & Tourism Council Safe Travels accreditation. We have won numerous awards, most recently Best Luxury Tour Operator at the 2020 Silver Travel Awards. There is an art to creating and delivering the highest quality tours, which we have been refining for generations. Our experience, knowledge, service and business ethics are all underpinned by more than 260 years of heritage.
