Very Good Experience

17-Apr-2022

This is the second trip we've booked with Cox & Kings and as with the first trip, the booking experience has been very good. We tried to do this trip in the autumn but were defeated by the ever-changing testing requirements. Cox & Kings quickly reconfirmed the itinerary when we revived the idea in the spring and kept us informed at every stage

Knowledgeable Staff and Excellent Service

01-Oct-2021

Knowledgeable staff and excellent service that 'goes the extra mile'. I have been on several holidays through Cox and Kings over the last 20 years and have always been more than satisfied

Exceptional Service

02-Feb-2022

I have frequently used Cox and Kings and they never disappoint. They organise whatever I want and the great thing about their group tours is that they always include some free time. Other companies tend to pack far too much in to their schedules. I have found everyone I have ever dealt with keen to provide the best possible service.

A Relaxed Way to Book a Holiday

13-Aug-2021

Sue and I have travelled with Cox & Kings a number of times and have always booked direct with them. For this latest trip, I again contacted them direct and spoke to their travel advisor for the chosen area for a tailor-made holiday. I found him empathetic, knowledgeable and understanding of my requirements. An initial itinerary was prepared which after due consideration and discussion was cheerfully amended and agreed on. There was no pressure put on me and I found it, as usual, a good experience. Holiday now booked and I am looking forward to the trip.

I've travelled with C&K before to Egypt and had a marvellous time so well looked after and wonderful hotel choices so I decided to book another trip for next year to Istanbul and Turkey now that we are able to travel. So looking forward to another adventure.
